Thanks Bien-Aime!

We just finished up two days of handing out our flyers and some free cups of iced coffee (goodness it was hot outside today!) at Bien-Aime Children's Consignment Boutique on Main St. Thanks so much to everyone who braved the heat and came out to see us! If you missed us there, be sure to look for us tomorrow when you're at the Durham Farmer's Market, or early next week at Southwest Regional and Main Library Branches.

Also be sure to visit Bien Aime when you are walking around downtown. Amy has some great kid's clothing in her store at great prices, and is really nice person and great supporter of local business! Thanks again Bien Aime!

Up and running at kickstarter!

Well, it's been a good first half day at kickstarter! We've already hit 7% of our funding, thanks to our super pioneer backers! You guys who have gotten us up and running over there are just awesome and I am so thankful for you! It's great to know that there are people who love this idea enough to actually put some proof behind it. There are a few pioneers who I've never met yet too, and that feels really cool. It's like we are instant friends because we are both into this thing!

If you are thinking about making a pledge, jump in and do it! The more momentum we can build at the beginning, the better and more convincing our case will be for people who aren't sure about us yet. (Remember this money doesn't actually draft for a month, and then it only drafts if the cafe is actually going to go!) It's going to take a lot of momentum to get us all the way to the goal, and every little push will help. Here is the link to the project. It's going to be an exciting ride! Jump on!

Flyers ready to fly!

Wooooo! The excitement is riding high over here this evening. I am just about to push go on our humble, no wait, AWESOME, kickstarter project. We are planning some cool events over the next few weeks to get out and tell people in person about why we need Stay & Play and what it will take to bring it here, namely pledges to our kickstarter campaign. So look for me around town and say hello! I would love to build you a boat or hat . . . That's right folks, if you are willing to talk to me for a minute, you will the chance to watch our little flyer transform itself before your very eyes into a boat or a hat. In some venues, we will be adding feathers or flags to our creations. But the important thing about this is to get us all excited about hanging out together and doing fun things with our kids. I'm looking forward to seeing you! By the way, if this boat/hat thing is just too exciting for you to wait on, here is a copy of the flyer (2 sides) for you to print out and make at home. I would just print the front if you can only do one side (like my home printer). See you soon! Hopefully wearing your Stay & Play hat!

Video, check.

Finally finished my video for the kickstarter! That felt like one of the biggest hurdles to getting up and running with our fundraising, so I'm glad to have it done! I think it came out pretty cute too, mostly just because of the toddler-speak. How can you not love that? Stay tuned for our launch and some promotional events to be announced shortly!
