Ok, so I think posting about KickStarter is going to be a regular thing of mine. Not only do I think it's awesome, but I think it's an incredible opportunity to support our artist community fulfill their dreams, grow their businesses, and hopefully stay out of debt, simply by investing some dollars for a guaranteed return. I'm OK with that.
Sophie and Lilli is run by the Awesome Jen Vallez! I met Jen through twitter, and we have been able to support, help and comfort each other through lots of things over the past 2 years. It's amazing that we haven't met in person!
She makes these incredibly sweet dolls, and she has been MAKING EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM BY HAND, but the incredible thing is that her sweet peeps have garnered some attention, and they've got to grow up a little so that they can be carried in department stores all over the country. With this opportunity, you have the chance to
A. Support Jen's independent business growth efforts
B. Support the Vallez family over all!
C. Support manufacturing in the USA!!!!!!!
D. Make some little girl really happy when you give them the doll you receive for being a backer.
E. You get to be awesome.
I meant what I said about this being a regular thing. I promise to post about projects I believe in and invest, not because I am Rich Lizzy Pennybags (not even close), but because I need support too, and I feel like I receive it from my friends, family, and you my sweet readers on a such a regular basis.
This way we can lift each other where we stand (stole that from Dreamy Elder Uchtdorf).
