This has been a busy bee kind of week! Don Bee is still hard at work, getting enough signatures from Berkeley, CA, resident voters. If he succeeds, his ballot initiative to ban neonics in Berkeley goes to a vote this year! If he is short of signatures, he would keep working to gather signatures, and his proposed ballot measure would be voted on in 2016. Of course, I hope that Don gets enough signatures! If you are in the Berkeley, CA, or San Francisco Bay Area and want to help Don “Bee” somehow, please E-Mail to PSM at: doyoulikefood@gmail.com.

Personally, I think that one of my new favorite ways to unwind is to create a save the bees poster. In the poster shown below, notice the “fence” image? Well, I took that earlier today in Sedona, AZ. Tonight, I created the poster design. I realize that both my font and color choices are all over the board, but I was going for creative (no pressure!). Enjoy and please re-post the poster! ❤

In my Professional Experience

Post taken from Alisha’s Blog on July 26, 2013.

Uploading a new self-portrait for online promo (shown below), creating a new document presenting my professional experience, updating my LinkedIn profile, and a trip to the local library to get a library card; these are my accomplishments for today.

Yesterday, I relocated back to Arizona.  Since early April, I have been working in New Mexico on the BeeSWeek 2013 production for my non-profit, Pollinator Support Movement.  There are dozens of concerned citizens that have helped me along my journey.  Most recently, I would like to thank the talented architect that supported me during my stay.

With this move back “home”, I feel excited to begin reintegrating myself back into the many Phoenix communities that I appreciate.  Arts, entertainment, creative design, “free the bees” work, and the beautiful desert… YES!

It is amazing to me that a full year of Pollinator Support Movement work is already under my belt.  On a daily basis, my spirit encourages me to continue my bees work journey.  I am so encouraged by the progress thus far!

The challenge of “not having a regular paying job” to fund my community-beneficial venture has become a major roadblock.  Both the quality of my personal relationships and “free the bees” progress have been slowed.

I have truly enjoyed the freedom of working on my art, music, and community bees work anytime I want.  And, I fully realize that I also truly enjoy producing the financial stability that encourages my creative projects to occur in bigger and more glorious bursts.

My next steps: secure freelance, full, or part-time creative and event design work.
