Post Kickstarter Update #8 PRODUCTION UPDATE
15 days ago – Sat, Sep 07, 2019 at 03:05:51 AM

Hi everyone!

Here is the latest on the production progress. The good news is, most of the rewards are complete and waiting to be shipped to you all. Unfortunately, the cards, gilding, artbook and tuck cases are still in production. The USPCC factory were pretty busy this summer. They are predicting the cards to finish next week and after that, they will start the gilding. I am expecting the fulfillment to start the first part of October (hopefully sooner).

Thank you all for your patience. I was hoping to get you all your rewards early this time around, but it looks like my original prediction of an October delivery is coming true.

MY TRIP TO TEXAS

A couple of months ago I was talking with Eddie from Gambler's Warehouse about visiting them to go over Luminosity and some future projects. I realized that I could also do something special for my wife Lisa. She loves the TV show "Fixer Upper" and has been wanting to visit Magnolia Farms for a long time now.

My time with Eddie and Gambler's Warehouse was a great trip (very HOT, but a great trip). I was able to figure out some things with Luminosity that I could not have done by staying at home. I have a couple of ideas for the next two projects that I was able to iron out as well. Also, spending time with Eddie and Subhan was such an honor. Eddie and Subhan are two great hosts and I am very glad to have them as partners.

Lisa loved Waco where we visited the Silos, Magnolia Table for Breakfast and some of the Fixer Upper houses that we were able to find.

I was excited to get home and get back into the swing of things. I am now rejuvenated and ready to bring Luminosity home and begin tackling the design process for the new projects coming up.

Here are some pics from our trip:

Post Kickstarter Update #4: BackerKit Survey are at 84% Completed!
3 months ago – Thu, Jun 13, 2019 at 02:57:44 AM

Hey everyone!

Great news! 84% of you have completed your surveys. Thank you for getting right on that. 

Unfortunately, it still means there are about 440 of you who have not responded yet. Please be sure to make this a priority in the next couple of days, so I can have a much better handle on the counts. With 440 backers not accounted for, that can really through off the numbers.

Please let me know if you have not received your survey or may have lost it. I will send you the link.

Thanks!

Jody
