Thank you everyone!

At the moment I am eagerly awaiting for the ink to dry on our Fantastic Garden prints. I am also awaiting the knock on the door from the printer's delivery with a bunch of information sheets to be mailed to everyone with their prints and rewards.

As I sit and ponder (not really, I'm furiously working on the Growing the Garden book!) I mostly feel gratitude toward everyone who participated, watched, contributed or simply enjoyed as the project came to fruition. Thank you, really, wholeheartedly.


I just sent out the last of the surveys requesting mailing addresses for those who did not previously receive them. Keep an eye on the email box please and reply to the survey as soon as possible. Rewards are being printed and everything (except the books) are ready to mail beginning next week. NEXT WEEK!!! Believe it!?

For non-participant backers: Remember that Kickstarter does NOT share your address with me so the only way I can send your goodies is if you send me your address. If for some reason you did not get the survey and do want your goodies, you can always email me your mailing address at

More! More! We want more! I am planning the most massive collaboration yet, where EVERYONE can play even if they can't carve wood. How is that possible? Stay tuned to the Puzzle Prints Blog for the next great mad concoction...stirring as we speak!

Signing off until next time!
Gratefully yours,

      Maria, congratulations on the completion of yet another massive printmaking project! I can't imagine you you're going to top this one ... (although I suppose you're already deep into the planning ...)
