1. The new AliEdwards.com and Studio Calico

    A few weeks ago when we announced our big news about Big Picture Classes we alluded to the fact that we have a few more big things coming. I’m excited to announce to you today a partnership near and dear to my heart. You all know Ali Edwards as an industry leader and a master story teller. She inspires us all to tell the stories of our life, no matter how insignificant it may seem to us. As a personal friend I’ve had long discussions with Ali and her future business dreams. I’m extremely honored to announce that she has chosen Studio Calico to power the new AliEdwards.com, launching later this week.
