Let’s get to it.
I am an entrepreneur trying to raise money for a bunch of projects. I create art, music, products, and produce sustainable, community-inspired projects that help to save and restore bees and the food supply chain. I need your continued support, as I try to build an online and offline-compatible system of doing my own business; which benefits our many ailing communities.

This post will act as my Spring newsletter. Here is some progressive news about my Day of Wedding Timeline Organizer Flashcards (“wedding flashcards”) product. I am giving away half of the net proceeds on this product; to Pollinator Support Movement. Fifty-percent (50%) of net online sales from this product will benefit (fund) Pollinator Support Movement‘s educational community improvement projects.
Wedding Day Technology (campaign)
My initial “Wedding Flashcards.com” website is being cross-promoted through an ad campaign project that I will be producing. This ad campaign will aim to widely advertise to North American brides and their wedding team. All of this ad hoopla will promote sales of my “Day of Wedding Timeline Organizer Flashcards” professional planning tool (product). Visit weddingflashcards.com to visit the current product website. Note: sales are not currently being fulfilled. This website is forever in production and editing. But, I do plan to update all product web designs as soon as my new start-up budget, or, opportunity allows.
I hope to be able to hire my colleague project partner, Mark Short, as my ad campaign’s creative direction supervisor and designer. Or, whatever he would want to do. Mark is one of my favorite creative expert professionals.
Recently, Mark gave me two points on image crop and color for my current (new) wedding flashcards ad campaign concept piece. I took his easy advice, and then added some conceptual elements to make this image into a sales ad (flyer). I am already wondering: “If I give this conceptual ad to Mark, how would he interpret it in his own design style?”
Below is the conceptual ad design that I just mentioned:
Re: Ad campaign (Continued):
“My new, promotional ad campaign called, “Wedding Day Technology.com” will feature spacey-sustainable modern art as inspirational themes, and will promote the “wedding flashcards” product. This campaign will also be cross-promoted at the recently purchased URL, Wedding Planning Forms.com.” Alisha M.

And, in other news:
Personal Business Card Lesson: My belief is that any business card design of mine should be fun and help to tell my story (for an affordable price). My moo.com cards have arrived.
For this first lot of business cards, I have placed three images from my Pollinator Support Movement work, in Berkeley, CA (sometimes with Don “Bee” Hughes, a.k.a. Dragon Master), on the back of the cards. On the front of the slightly-oversized business cards (with rounded edges/corners), I have placed a selfie image that I took while on a hike with Mark. (Notice how I actually look happy. I actually am a happy person.) Oh, and there is a lot of exciting save the bees activism news coming from Berkeley, CA, involving Don Bee. (I will be writing about it, soon.) But, I digress.
I’ll post a snapshot of the business cards, soon. For now, this is one of the three images which I’ve used as the other side to my new business cards: “Don Bee and Alisha Bee in Berkeley CA 2012”
Happy Spring! OK + Thanks For Reading.
More updates will continue to come as I get further along in all of my projects.
