787 Mini Yurts
January 18, 2010

I was just able to initiate the fund transfer for the yurt — after all of the transactional debits  and donors that couldn’t make the commitment post-holidays the yurt will be made with 4,860.60, which is AWESOME! I’m excited to get working on everyone’s rewards now before the wool gets cleaned and ready for felting.

I can’t even begin to tell you how daunting this process is but I have to make 787 mini yurts for all of my wonderful donors! Ahhhh — I’m going to be crocheting night and day — just the way I like it! Look out for emails coming from Kickstarter in the coming days so that I can get everyone’s mailing addresses and preferences for things!

Yurt Reality
January 1, 2010

Today is New Year’s eve — I’ve completed my move to Boston, I just had dinner with my parents, we’re sitting around our tree and listening to the Beatles. Things couldn’t be better because I’m no longer counting down towards my funding goal for the yurt — we’ve far surpassed what I need to acquire the wool and get it ready for felting!

Yes, that’s an image of counting sheep, however, I will sleep easy tonight given all of the amazing support of my backers. With the start of 2010 I’m excited to get going on making my rewards for all 101 people! How humbling and amazing — I can’t wait to get felting! If you want to get involved please drop me a line — this yurt dream is coming true in 2010 everyone — look out 😉
