Project Alicia : WW: My Latest Endeavors

WW: My Latest Endeavors

Exciting things are happening here. Now if only I could keep up with it all...

Becoming projectalicia{dot}com. Archiving photos. Making albums. Getting unstuck.

And opening my blog to sponsorships.

Not to mention the normal, everyday, hectic, busyness of life. Cooking, cleaning, dishes, laundry, more laundry, soccer games, school concerts, homework. You know the drill.

I've also been taking a crash course in all things techy. If you know me at all, you know by now that technology and I don't see eye to eye. And this week it has been the bane of my existence. CSS, hyperlinks, php fatal errors, wordpress lingo, plugins, and photoshop CS5 to name a few. So much to learn and so little time. I think my brain cells have been stretched to their maximum capacity. And my head might just explode.

And although it is not yet 100%, I am proud to announce that I put together a photo website ALL. BY. MYSELF! Eat your heart out you web designers out there. Truly a feat for this tech challenged girl. I also started an etsy shoppe for some of my textured prints.

And the best news is I am opening my photography to the public and beginning Alicia Ann Photography.

Thanks so much for all the gentle nudges and encouraging words that pushed me to jump in.

Life couldn't be any crazier. But let's face it. It's not slowing down anytime soon. Might as well live it to it's fullest while I can.

Here is a screen shot from the Project Alicia Etsy Shoppe.
