Rewards up to $50 Bracket Sent!

Posted by Alexis Black (Creator)

Dearest Kickstarter Project Supporters,

I hope you are having a wonderful new year! I am pleased to announce that I have shipped all rewards for project supporters in the $10, $25 and $50 gift brackets! That includes Thank You cards, Post Card Sets and Marionettes. Yay! **happy boogie**

I don't want to spoil the surprise by showing pictures of the gifts, so I just took a photo of most of the packages. Shipping these flat envelopes turned out to be pretty expensive, so I shipped them via first class mail. They may take a couple of weeks to reach some of my international supporters. 

I was only able to ship to backers who completed their surveys and provided addresses. If you did not complete your survey, I don't have your address. Please see my last update for links to the surveys so I can ship your gift.

In the surveys, I asked you if you wish to forfeit your gifts. Many of you told me you wish to sacrifice your rewards. I felt so thankful and humbled by that, I decided to send your rewards anyway. I hope you like them. You have all been so patient and supportive. 

For those of you who are receiving marionettes, please send me a picture of your doll after you color and assemble it. I think it would be fun to make a gallery of marionettes for everyone to view. I printed extras and will make them available for sale in my etsy shop soon. They make great gifts. :)

I am working on the lingerie bags and herbal sachets now. I'm waiting for some supplies so I can finish them up. They are quite time consuming. I am hoping to finish them next month. Thank you for your patience.

I have not started the paper dolls yet.  Although many of you have told me you don't mind if I don't make the paper dolls, I really want to do them (because I think you will love them, and you deserve it). I am thinking about making them blank, like the paper dolls, so you can color them yourselves. Then we can also have a paper doll gallery. That would be pretty awesome. :) If the paper dolls turn out to be overwhelming, I may offer an alternate gift instead. We'll see, :)

I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for your patience and support. Thanks to your very thoughtful letters and messages, I am doing so much better now. The project and gifts are taking much longer than I ever expected, but it's going to be awesome, and worth it. I hope you enjoy your long-awaited rewards. I love you all!
