The Inspired Year Planners have shipped!

My team of elves has been hard at work this last week!

Since the end of the Kickstarter, a day hasn't gone by that I haven't been working to get these planners to you as soon as possible. The timeline has been very tight to allow for printing, shipping materials, assembling & packing. 

The entire process went smoothly overall, but there were some bumps (the printer sent the first batch of 56,000 sheets of paper with an error & had to reprint them all and courier from San Diego to Sonoma in 1 day!). The assembly was a little more labor intensive than anticipated. But, I've been committed to getting these shipped before the Christmas holiday. Thanks to reinforcements - my mom, dad, husband & kids - we all worked overtime to help get these to you this week!

Some behind the scenes for you:

My girls were eager to help out when the planner materials first arrived. They came home from school and ran in to be part of the process.

The planners are now on their way to you! 

The planners were shipped USPS, with most arriving this week (if you are in the U.S.; Int'l shipments must go thru customs).  At this stage of the Kickstarter process, I've handed off control to USPS and hope that all goes well both with handling & delivery. We had torrential downpours in Sonoma last week, and I received 2 packages sent to me that were completely soaked!

Time to enjoy!

After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has slowed down, I hope you find some peace and quiet to slow down and enjoy the space you've created to invest in your plans, dreams, and vision for your 2017.

Warm wishes,

Kathy
