In this video, I talk about sticky notes made with Gimp, recent snow days, tax preparation, consistent blog posts, and video tutorials.
If you don’t care for video, I included text below.

Blog Posts and Video Tutorials
This week has been super busy as far as writing blog posts and getting them out on a daily basis. I’m so proud of myself for being able to keep the pace, even though I’ve been so lethargic lately.
I did a couple of video tutorials, so I’ll be getting those up on the blog as well this week, which I am excited about. One of the tutorials is about how to make a sticky note in Gimp.
Several regulars on the blog asked how to do this and I was finally able to sit down and learn the program well enough to do the graphic using Gimp and I just had to make the video to show you how to do it as well.
I think you’ll be really happy with it and I want you to share your sticky notes after you created them because I want to be able to view what you’ve made!
It’s tax season right now and I spent the better part of today getting my taxes in order while sitting on the couch watching movies next to the partner.
I’m always the one procrastinating at tax time. The partner gets upset with me because he likes to get them done the second he is handed his W2 from the employer.
It’s strange too because I really like math. I was good in this subject during school days, but for some reason I must force myself every tax season to sit down and get the paperwork done.
This coming week I have a few more tutorials to get posted on the blog. Some of them are in Gimp, some not. I did a mind map explaining some of the items you need on your blog menu.
Somebody asked what exactly should be on the menu, so I felt it was better to show than to just tell. 🙂 So look for that this week. If there are some other graphic tutorials you have in mind – let me know what they are so I can get busy creating them!
We had 4 inches of snow. I love being out in it, but thanks to my blood disorder, I didn’t get a chance to build my snowman this year. Though, a nearby city did hold an ice festival.
We went to see the fireworks on Friday and then Saturday the partner drove us to the festival to see the ice sculptures. I took the video camera, but I haven’t had time to view the footage yet.
It was a wonderful day to be outdoors. They had an ice castle and so many beautiful sculptures. There were 2 horse and buggy carriages, which the partner wanted to ride, but I wasn’t in the greatest of moods.
Odds and Ends
I’m really surprised that I got any blog posts done this last week. I’ve been falling asleep in my chair, which is not a good thing.
I really would like to get my weekly Squidoo lens done. Anything that produces money over time is always a good thing to focus on.
My signature product seems to fall by the wayside lately. I need to do videos for it and just can’t seem to fit the time into my existing schedule. I really need to be better at focusing on those.
Your turn. How productive was your week? Leave a comment and let me know!
