    Coffee Class... I will come to your home and make coffee (approx 1-2 hours), as well as help you make better coffee at home. We can look at your coffee set up and go over options to improve your daily cup! I will bring a selection of coffee and give a short explanation about what makes each coffee unique, and answer any question you might have about the mysteries of the coffee world! Redeemable anytime in the next year that works with our schedules. Availability will be somewhat limited outside the Bay area, but anywhere that I might tour with the CD/artwork is fair game (NW, Iowa/Kansas City area, along I-80 or I-5)... e-mail me with questions. Includes the CD, postcard, & magnet.

    Art Class... Join me at the Hammock Hostel (my house, and studio in Vallejo, CA) for a day of making art. I can tailor the class to something you want to learn or create! We can get our hands into clay, paint, photography, drawing, woodworking, candle making, collage... just about anything you can think of, and you end up with something special to take home!

    This class (approx 3-5 hours) will include plenty of coffee (or tea), and at least one meal made by me. Overnight stay at the Hostel is even possible if you live far away... make a Bay area vacation out of it!

    Redeem the reward anytime you (and I) can make the day happen in the next year. This reward will cover two people, or bump your pledge up to $200 and add one more... split the cost with friends and have fun too! Includes the CD, postcard, & magnet.

    Bus "website" Billboard... The bus catches people's eye. In fact, it causes outright stares. This might be just what you need to get your project the attention it deserves. Fund a third of this project in one click, and I will paint your website on the bus! This needs to be done in the first 5 days of the project (by the 15th)... So I can make it happen for the 2000 mile journey from Iowa to CA. I can do one website on each side of the bus, as well as the back... this will be first come, first serve! I will also feature you on my blog, and talk with people I meet along the way. You will also get any of the other rewards that you would like!!! Please email me your idea before purchasing this reward... so I can make sure I am comfortable being an ambassador for it!
