Come Over All the Time: A Creative Guest Book

$4,154

Come Over All the Time is a guest book with creative prompts to remember fun times with fun people. It’s going to look so good in your living room, guest bedroom, or Airbnb!

Why a guestbook?

When I (Lora) moved into my first apartment, I left a notebook on my coffee table with a note: “Leave a message!” My friends left lots of really cute messages and I still love flipping through it and remembering the craft nights and dance parties of that apartment.

I was recently thinking about that notebook, and wondered why there wasn’t a prompted notebook for that exact purpose. My friend Erin immediately came to mind as the perfect artist to design it, since her artwork is interactive, colorful, and really good at bringing people together. Thankfully, she was as excited about the project as I was!

We’ve been working on designing Come Over All the Time since August 2017. After so, so much brainstorming, cutting paper, and edits, the book is ready for print! We’re here on Kickstarter to raise the funds to print the first run of books. If you like friends, hanging out, and fun creative prompts, you will probably love Come Over All the Time.

Our hidden agenda

Strong relationships are so important to your well-being! Lots of studies have shown that we’re happier and healthier when we have close friendships that we can count on.

We (not-so) secretly hope that this book will give you an extra nudge to hang out with friends IRL as often as you can. The world is a stressful place-- good friends make it a little less so.

Risks and challenges

We've run several Kickstarter campaigns, so we're very familiar with this process and confident that we can deliver on-time and on-budget. The main risk is that there will be some issue with printing, but we have a great relationship with our printers, so we don't have too much stress there, either. If anything comes up, we promise to be transparent and communicate frequently.
