Busy, busy, busy... [Prints, books, shipping, and more!]

Heya guys!
A lot has been happening, and we'll try to catch you all up to speed. A couple weeks ago I finalized all of the images, and created the spreads for our photo books. Once the images were ready, we placed bulk orders for all of the prints and books that will be shipped from our studio (these include packages with books, resin pieces, etc.) Well, the studio is now full because all of those came in! And they look great!

Once we approved them all, we started placing the orders that will be shipped directly from our printer, and some of those have already started shipping. (What!) 
We will try to keep up with sharing tracking numbers (especially for International backers) but for those who are local, you may receive your package prior to getting a shipping notification. Hope that is more of a pleasant surprise than an inconvenience. Again, our goal is to keep up with tracking numbers, but as we're ordering all of these individually and manually this time, its a lot for our combined 20 fingers to keep up with! (I'm typing this up while I stand/kneel at my art desk, and Paul is kneeling on the floor tap-tap-tapping away on our other computer, inputing more orders as we speak!)

{On top of everything else, Paul will be sending out the digital downloads TOMORROW, so watch your inboxes for that!}

As some of you may remember, there were different ship dates depending on your reward tiers, so those with just prints can expect them sooner, while resin pieces will be shipping out in late November/early December, and some of your reward tiers specified a January ship date. We'll try to keep everyone updated on what to expect as we go through this process.

We love to see photos of my work in your homes! When you receive your package, go ahead and share it on social media, and use #inktheearth or tag me (@kyra_hinton_art on Instagram, or Washed in Watercolors on Facebook). Unboxing videos would be a ton of fun to see, so if you do one, send it our way! We may just share it on our sites!

The studio is bustling for many more reasons, as we approach the holiday season, commissions are flooding in, and we have a couple new projects up our sleeves. One of those projects is a new campaign a friend of ours just launched today, and Paul is her campaign manager! (He's obviously gotten a lot of experience running my campaigns, which he is AMAZING at, so he's excited to help others with their projects.) Here's a sneak peak, photo credit: me.

We'd love if you could go check out their campaign! Click here to learn more

As always, if you guys have questions, message us through here or email us at washedinwatercolors@gmail.com, and we will be happy to help!

Over and out,
Kyra (& Paul)
