What a journey this Kickstarter campaign has been! In the last 48 hours of the campaign, we raised over $5k to see our project reach 115% of our funding goal!
I feel incredibly humbled and motivated by this experience. It was so much more challenging, exhausting, and exciting than I ever imagined. In a lot of ways, it was only the beginning!
Our next steps are to finish the illustrations, design, and layout for the book. I know our illustrator has been incredibly motivated by all of the kind words and interest in her art, so I feel confident we'll be right on track. We'll definitely be keeping you updated, starting with sending out surveys to confirm package details and shipping information next week.
Finally, I just want to say, thank you so much. Thank you to everyone who contributed, shared, interviewed, blogged, called, texted, or shouted about Emma Goes to School from the rooftops!
Thank you to the Nelson's for making me a part of your family, to Emma for inspiring and motivating me to be a better person every day, to Sage for bringing my ideas to life and Jennifer for keeping us both on track. And finally, an extra special thank you to my husband Brad, I am not exaggerating when I say this project would not have been possible without your help.
Stay tuned for more details as we make our way closer to printing the first copy of Emma Goes to School, and making this dream become a reality. See you this Fall! <3
