We're half-way there! PLUS: A shout-out to my "secret" collaborators

AH!!! We've reached (and surpassed!) the 50% mark in 48 hours! #somuchlove #overwhelmedwithjoy

This is a perfect time to take a moment to recognise two incredible "secret" collaborators that are near and dear to my heart. Between the two of them, they possess enough talent to run a small country. Hmm... Make that a big country.

A HUGE shout out to my uncle, Thor Muller (@tempo)! He's the one responsible for the delightful, tear-inducing video you see on my Kickstarter page. Not only does he have mad skills, but also mad patience, for I pestered him at what was quite possibly the worst timing ever for his work and personal life. Yet, he executed the video lovingly and with grace! Not to mention, it is beautiful... My heart could burst with gratitude! Moreover, he continues to impart his wisdom to me in the ways of crowdfunding, having successfully crowdfunded a number of campaigns himself (among many other successes he has had over the years!). THANK YOU!!!

Then, there is my auntie, the mighty Amy Muller (@AmyLolaM)! If I didn't know any better, I'd say she's the one who invented "I am woman, hear me roar!" I'm not saying she's loud, I'm saying she's a force to be reckoned with - while wearing a 1950's red and white polka dot sundress (you know the one I'm talking about, auntie). Not only did her feedback lead to massive improvements to my Kickstarter page, but... Her words of "Don't worry, sweetie, just do it!" took me from being a vacillating worry-wart, to being the courageous woman that clicked that "Launch" button! Thank you for inspiring me in all of the ways!

Thank you, my auntie-and-uncle-whom-I-love-so-much, for your endless (& patient) love and support! Yay for co-creation!
