Nerves

I am already off on the wrong foot with my fundraising… it was my intention to launch my campaign on August 1st and run it through the end of the month to start crafting September 1st. But then the nerves hit. Big time. The terror set in with What If questions. What if I didn’t get funded? What if I’m pricing everything too high? What if no one pledges? What if too many people pledge? What if I didn’t pick the right rewards? What if I end up spending way more money than I raise?

Seriously, I talked myself out of posting the campaign that has been 85% ready for 3+ weeks. Husband and I discussed the reward levels and campaign in general. After that, I reduced the number of large items and decided to create a “large item” fundraiser once this one is completed. You know, to make sure there is even a market for my goodies.

Less projects. Smaller items. More manageable deadlines. Something for everyone. Less funding goal. Totally doable.

It will be posted via Kickstarter as they run the smoothest platform that I know of. Over the next few days, I need to take photos of all the projects I have around the house and create a video.

If all goes according to plan, I will be going live on September 1st with my first fundraiser!
