**UPDATE** July 13, 2010

Wow! This has been such an amazing experience! So many people have been supportive and excited about this debut Gifts or Creatures project. Thank you all for helping us reach our goal in just over two weeks!!!

Some folks have been asking: "What happens if you go over your goal of $1,500?".

As many of you know, making a record is a big production. Our $1,500 goal is a good chunk of the duplication cost. However, we'll still carry some debt after all is said and done. We will have additional duplication costs, shipping costs, and graphic design costs.

Our Kickstarter project will be open for another 15 days. If you are still interested in helping us, any additional funds will go directly to our album. Rewards are still available!!

We're thrilled to announce that we will be printing with Stumptown Printers, a small, worker-based collective in Portland, Oregon. Check out www.stumptownprinters.com for more information about their incredible work.

Once again, THANK YOU!!

We are Brandon John and Bethany Foote, proud residents of Lansing, Michigan and lifelong lovers of beautiful music. In late August of 2009, we joined forces forever and wed during a rainy, autumn evening. Together, our interest in music and Brandon's love of storytelling has evolved into a project we have christened Gifts or Creatures.

In January of 2010, we gathered a joyful circle of musical friends and set out to record the melodies that had been brewing in Brandon's thoughts. Many cups of coffee and oatmeal-chocolate chip-flax seed-cookies later, 13 tunes emerged, calling us to share them with the world.

This Kickstarter page is dedicated to the release of our new creation. We have recorded, mixed and mastered our debut album. We're looking to you for help in regards to duplication. We have a pledged goal of $1,500. If and when we meet our goal, your support will enable us to reap the rewards and finance our Debut Album. If we do not reach our goal of $1,500 you will not be charged.

For your kind assistance we'd like to offer the following rewards:

$10 - A digital copy sent directly from us to you!

$20 - A limited edition signed and numbered physical CD delivered to your door!

$50 - A limited edition signed and numbered physical CD delivered to your door with a dozen homemade chocolate chip-flax seed-cookies made by Bethany!

$100 - A limited edition signed and numbered physical CD delivered to your door and a juice session at our home. Yes Fresh Juice!

$400 - A limited edition signed and numbered physical CD delivered to your door and a house concert with Gifts or Creatures! (Show location within 90 miles of Lansing)
