T'do

As promised, here is the first post in a series designed to get my butt in gear. Working on my own, I can get lost in the land of procrastination. This weekly t'do list is my attempt at holding myself accountable to the goals and tasks I need to accomplish to move my business forward.

I thought before I went straight to my t'do list, I'd show you what I've been working on, and what I'm hoping will the next step for English Muffin, onesies!

onesies

To get these babies off the ground I need t'do the following:

• Get quotes from screen printers. Email is passive so I've got to get on the phone.
(Hey Montrealers - any screen printing contacts?)

• Source the onesies. I want them to be organic, have found a few options. Would you pay a higher price for them if in addition to being organic they were also made in Canada?

• Start to sketch out packaging. Labels, tags, shipping boxes, etc...

I won't include the daily t'do tasks like doing a shipping supply order, answering emails, or post office runs. It's the big stuff that I'm having trouble getting to.

I'd love to hear your feedback on the onesies. I know they are kind of baby boy-ish at the moment and I'm hoping to make some more girly versions.

Wow, double post day - those don't happen very often.
See you tomorrow!

  1. Ooh so cute. I've got something similar on my to-do list. Talk to Michelle from Holley & Gill. She has a screen printer and if that one is too far, may be able to recommend another one.

    Good luck!

  5. I don't think they're too boy-ish. More like uni-sex. I think I'd pay more if I knew they were a locally (small) manufacturer using sustainable/organic process.

  6. They are SO cute! I don't think they're boyish either. Definitely unisex! My friend had a baby girl last November and was getting so frustrated trying to find neutral clothes. She said all you get out there is pink or blue, sometimes the alternative is white. So these prints I think are perfect!! I love the one with the whale!

  7. Thanks for all your comments :) I really appreciate the feedback. Glad to hear you don't think they're too boy-ish, I didn't either at first, who says girls need to be in pink and only pink?!

    @ adele - great idea, I'll send her an email. thanks!

    @ christine - I love the idea of the matching print too, I never thought of that - thanks :)

  8. They are adorable! This is just a suggestion, but, what if the elephant trunks intertwined so there's more of an interaction between the parent and the baby? The elephant one is my favorite. And I agree that the prints are more unisex than "boy-ish".
