Well, you did it. You made this one of the coolest KickStarter campaigns on the site! My campaign to raise money for the Gift Prolific ended today and you are and integral part of that! You are a huge part of the success and life of the project! Thank you, from everything within me. Your support for my dreams and ideas is felt very deeply inside. When I got home from work and saw my computer today, and saw that we had surpassed our goals to $3,157.00 I was in shock. It has been a few hours and it is barely sinking in. All that I can say is THANK YOU....over and over again.
Fundraising for this project was so easy thanks to all of my backers. People saw my project and got involved....any support is helpful. People got involved in so many different levels....from one dollar pledges....to lots of 50 dollar pledges (the largest group) and 100 dollar pledges. We saw two 200 dollar pledges...and two 500 dollar pledges!!! Thank you all for doing what you felt was the right thing and getting on board.
Now we look to the future! I have to start building our gallery. I have already made several of the travel plans and reservations for a truck. In the next month I will be building pieces of the gallery walls, making huge signs for the gallery, making explanation signs for the gallery, and generally getting things ready to make our awesome debut!
I have more paintings to get done as well!!! Plus I will be working on all of the paintings for the rewards! I am very excited to announce some of the rewards coming your way! As advertised you will get the reward you signed up for no later than the end of September. I will be filling each of your boxes with goodies....and some surprises! I even just thought of one really special reward. More to come on that later. So sit tight. I will be sending each of you a survey to collect addresses and info very shortly.
One of the fun rewards that is open to all of you will be an amazingly cool backyard party, thrown by me, for you! The Backers! I will let you know very soon about that! It should be a great time.
And as with any mountain climb....it feels great to be on top of the world. But I feel that I am only halfway through. So as soon as the glory of it all wears off....it is time to get started, doing the work for the rest of the journey. Thank you SO MUCH. I look forward to hearing from all of you very soon. Take care.
Check www.TheGiftProlific.com for more details....thank you.
A huge THANK YOU is in order to each and every one of you! Your support is fantastic! Seriously. This morning before I headed out the door to go to work, I checked the campaign and saw that it was 100% funded! Wow........double wow! I am trying to take it all in....I don't think it has really hit me yet. Your funding and support are going to make this idea be the most successful thing I have ever done. I can't even find the right words.....other than THANK YOU! I will be updating in the next day or so.....once I can let it sink in a little. You rock! Big things are just around the corner.....and I am so happy you are all on board for the adventure! Take Care....feeling the love right now.
I just wanted to write a bit to tell you all that I am amazed and a little overwhelmed by your support! This fundraising campaign has only been up for 3 days and already it has reached it's halfway point on the way to blasting through my goals for the project! That is due to all of your wonderful support! Some of you know me or have at least met me personally...others, not yet! But each and every pledge has brought us here. Thank you! Seriously.....thank you all.
Up until now I have been creating this project in kind of a bubble. I give the gifts....make the paintings....Photoshop them....blog about that day...and repeat. All in the confines of my humble studio. The blog readers and followers have been amazing, but I was not really sure how the rest of the world views the project. Now I know for sure! YOU love it! People have been talking with me about the idea....about the paintings...and they each have something that resonates inside. I am very excited to make this connection with each of you. Thank you again for your support.
And of course, I can't help but think about the 'what if?'.....What if The Gift Prolific Kickstarter should raise more than the goal? As you may know, art projects need art supplies and art supplies ain't cheap! So I will be replenishing my stock of paints, brushes, and canvas that I have used up throughout the course of this project. One other thing I have kicked around was the idea of photographing the people that get to take a painting home with them. Photographing them with their painting...and maybe staying connected by email....to see where their painting ends up. Of course I will need funding for that as well. So there are some cool extras....but let's worry about that when we get there. For NOW......Thank you so much. You are truly giving this thing legs. Take care.
