Project Management

When I stopped sending out large sample packets , I was left with a ton of 9 x12 envelopes. I found they have become a great way for me to manage projects.

When I get an assignment, I label an envelope with the assignment title and deadline. This then holds printed versions of the layout, specs and sketches.

I also use them for individual illustrations to hold cut pieces of felt so they don't get confused with other assignments. I tape a printout of the sketch on the outside to easily find which is which.

Really handy!

Hi Paige!
Aren't they terrific? I also use them for my Sales/ Expenses. Right now I seem to be accumulating a LOT more expenses. Think I need to start a second envelope. hahahha!

Oh wow, gone are the days when various sketches, specs, assignments, manuscripts were ALL over my art desk. I finally tried out this idea today and it really organized things for me, thanks again Roz! Am I actually becoming organized now?? :-O

HI paige!
Oh good, I'm glad you found it useful. I like to call it, "organized chaos!".
