Update on Baby Burrito Collective

Untitled-15

Tomorrow, it will officially be a month since the Baby Burrito Collective went online. Since then, we have gotten our first member, the lovely Heather Leigh, who also happens to be my very talented cousin. We are working on promoting her latest book, Red Nectar, which is geared towards teens. You can purchase Red Nectar at either Lulu or Amazon and it also comes as an e-book.

Once we are finished working on the online store, we are going to sell Red Nectar on our site as well, but that will have to wait for now!

We have started our Indiegogo campaign and have raised $60 so far. We were able to get business cards with that amount but we still have SO much more to do! If you are able to donate anything to our campaign, it would be amazing and we would be so incredibly grateful for it!

We are also looking for a volunteer writer/blogger who would love to do book reviews. You would be able to get all of the benefits of membership, but wouldn’t have to pay anything. Please visit Baby Burrito Collective’s Volunteer page if you are interested.

We are picking up speed for sure, but there is still so much that we want to do! And we need everyone’s support. Even if you aren’t able to donate, simply just spreading the word about the Baby Burrito Collective will help!

Thank you so much for helping me achieve my dreams!

Brace yourself, y’all…we got business cards!

IMG_0008Thanks to our donations from Patty and Tarah last week, we were able to get our business cards! Patty will get free membership for two months with her donation and Tarah will get a free print! Next…we are looking into getting a logo and branding, which should be about $250.

There are so many ways you can get involved. If you want to be a member, we are still offering free memberships for the rest of May. If you purchase a membership during the month of May, you get 30 days FREE. If you donate $25 or more, you will get a free month as well.

If you don’t want to be a member but want to check out our services, whatever you donate will be taken off your fee. We are also looking for volunteers. Right now, we need people to help with graphic design and social media. We also need bloggers (preferably teen) who are interested in writing book review. The book will be free to keep!

If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please check out our website. You can also visit our Indiegogo campaign, and find us on Facebook or Twitter. I know, we’re all over the place.

Are there any projects you are working on? Post them in the comments!

Help the Baby Burrito Collective!

So, as you may know, I started an art collective, the baby burrito collective. Although the collective has been in my head and I have been working hard to develop my skills for a few years now, the website just went live last week. And with that….comes the Indiegogo campaign!

I’m hoping to raise $5,000 so I can afford web design, a sweet logo, supplies to make our own promotional items, get our status as a Nonprofit and open an online classroom. And all of this will be made possible with donations and contributions. No matter what happens, I will keep the collective going with what I can, but man, if I got this…it would be so amazing.

You can click on the link below to contribute if you can, and if you are looking to become a member…you can sign up this month and get a whole 30 days free.

Thank you in advance for your support. It’s awesome people like you that keep this going.

Because I don’t like to be bored…

I’ve been interested in graphic design and web design for a while now. I really got into it when I was an editor at my college newspaper and I got to see the “behind the scenes” action of designing the paper. While writing has always been my true passion, the design bug was definitely planted that semester.

I also really got involved in the art scene in Sacramento last semester but that came to a screeching halt after I moved to Stockton. I wanted to remain involved but under my current circumstances, I couldn’t really do that. So I decided to start my own art collective. And that’s just what I did…dang it! I even created this graphic for it, which is a big deal for me.

I’m also still volunteering for Vox (a nonprofit art studio in Sacramento) and I plan on teaching some classes and hosting some DIY days there. If you’re in the Sacramento area, you should definitely check them out. Classes are relatively cheap and members can hang in the gallery for free!

I also started as an editorial intern at Yogi Times, an online yoga magazine where yoga enthusiasts can write articles, post press releases and write reviews on…pretty much anything related to yoga. It involves two of my favorite things…writing and yoga.

Last but most definitely not least, I am only one step away of achieving a goal of mine: attending the Academy of Arts! I have been saving their catalogs since high school, and I finally took the leap to attend the school. It will be all online so I can do it all from home, and I will be working on my degree in graphic design. I am beyond excited and I find out for sure in a couple of weeks!

It feels like everything is coming together and I am so excited to start these new adventures in my life. Are you taking a big leap this year? Are there any fun projects you are working on? Share your story in the comments!
