Its hard to believe we are already 9 days into the New Year 2013 is now in full swing.
Many people start the new year off with lofty goals and resolutions it can be hard to stick to your guns when temptation is everywhere so this year I decided to forgo personal weight loss for professional growth. Below I have listed some of my goals and would love for others to share theirs as well. It does not have to be a huge list. If nothing else use it as a way to kickstart the ideas and there is something comforting about physically crossing things off as you accomplish your task.
• Set a monthly sales goal.
• Release a new product catalog.
• Get featured on 5 blogs or websites.
• Release a minimum of 3 new products each quarter.
• Increase my wholesale accounts by 50%.
Their may be a few more added as the year goes by, but this is what I'm starting with this shows me what I need to be working on.
And to hopefully help you guys get a little more organized I am giving away two 2013 Jane hancock papers planners!!

I decided to give it one more try this time I'm using a site called Boostive.com which uses PayPal for payment processing and has much lower fees. My new funding goal will allow me to create the new letterpress line & the home/gift line as well as send out awesome rewards to all those that make a donation. I know there are probably a ton of people that are asking you for your help everyday and it can be hard to say yes to one and not another. I get that times are tough but if you can make just a small donation of just $6-15 it can really add up and allow me to make my dreams come true. I hope that you will show your support. Let your friends know you made a donation and tell them they should as well.

If your reading this it means that our Kickstarter project did not reach 100%, however I have received so many encouraging words from friends and family asking me if there is a different route I can take to achieve my goals. So back to the drawing board I went and came up with another plan. The National Stationery show is a year away so if I can get this new line produced and take it around to different artist markets, craft show and online stores like Etsy so I can raise money to attend the show by 2013
So I reach out to all the backers and ask you one more time for your support. I have set up an account on Boostive my hope is that everyone will transfer their pledges to this new site. You will be able to select from the same rewards that are offered now and anyone who has won a prize and transfers there pledge will still recive it as well. And the posters will still be produced for all of you guys that uped your bid the additional $10 or $15.
Many of you will like Boostive since you can use PayPal at check out. Also please note that the money will come out of your account immediately as Boostive does not have the same all or nothing funding policy. Pledges will come through immediately! Many designs are ready so production will start in the next few months (I can't wait!). Again thank you all in advance for your support & putting up with me through all of this. I know this endeavor is meant to be successful it just may not happen the exact way I had planned.
