Hey friends! The Three Bee Honey Campaign has launched and is already at 82% (!!!!) as of this afternoon. We are blown away by the support and encouragement we’ve received.
^^Jon and me when I pressed the “Launch Campaign” button on Friday morning. Lot’s of nervous energy in the house that day lol.
Here’s what’s inside the book:
Our son even stepped in to help us edit the launch video. It was an all-hands-on-deck week, and we are so grateful for his editing skills! Here he is, concentrating on the project:
We will be updating campaign donors with regular updates. And we have some awesome things in store. This week, we have a podcast interview scheduled, and we’re hosting a free Balancing Life vs. Art Workshop for the Kids Comics Unite Community.
We'll also preview our sticker sets, prints, and spotlight the amazing guest artists who will be featured in the book. In addition to posting silly memes, we’ll share behind the scenes moments on our TikTok account, so stay tuned!
Also, those who purchase a physical copy of the book will receive a FREE Three Bee Honey Print! This offer expires on Sunday (7/23) at 9am PST, so don’t miss out!
Whew…what a whirlwind! That’s all for now, but I will get in touch again in August with some more updates. We truly appreciate your support! Feel free to share or forward this newsletter (or the campaign link) to anyone you think would enjoy it. :)
Hey friends! Our Crowdfundr campaign launches in just ONE day, and Jon and I are working hard behind the scenes to get everything as ready as possible. We just posted this video to kick off the launch.
To commemorate this event, I thought I’d try a different angle in summarizing our experience preparing for a Crowdfundr. We are so excited to get Three Bee Honey out into the world, but it’s definitely been a LOT of work. But we’re making progress, and that alone is worth celebrating.
The ABCs of Crowdfunding
Anticipation building as you countdown the days
Believing in yourself when the doubts get loud
Cross the Rubicon and announce your campaign
Don’t forget to take a shower!
Endless edits on the story and the website
Fall, but then get back up
Go get some sleep, kiddo
Have to complete way too much math to figure out a budget
Infinite to-do lists
Just keep swimming, even when life gets in the way
Know that you’ll be okay, regardless
Learning how to make TikToks, Reels, and Stories
Manifest your daily goals #bossbabes
Noticing that one mistake after it’s posted-gah!
Optimize your network and make the ask
Parent the kids and be generous with screens
Quality videos take time--learn how to edit
Remember to draft a few newsletters along the way
Scrambling the week before launch
Take breaks and laugh or watch a show
Update your fans--even if it’s just your best friend
Visit other campaigns to learn and offer support
Whenever you can, update your subscribers
Xtra rewards are always a good idea for your big spenders
You can do it ALL--sike! Just kidding!
Zen feeling that hits after it’s all done.
The campaign hasn’t even launched yet, but I’m stoked at the level of encouragement and support we’ve gotten. Here are some cool things we have in store for you:
In addition, we have:
Subscribe to our campaign for updates. Thank you so much for joining us on this journey!
It’s Thursday, so I thought I’d throw in a few throwback pictures of our four-legged friends. Aren’t they the cutest?? *Squeeee!*
Since the kids are on summer break, we have a chance to spend more time together, which has its pluses and minuses, for sure. To break up the long summer days, we have family game nights. One of our favorite games is Catan. It is a game of strategy, and the object is to use your resources to build as many settlements and cities as possible.
That’s all for today, but I will get in touch again soon when the campaign goes live. We truly appreciate your support through this process! :)
Some updates, musings, and sharing of inspirations.
