Before I get into the crux of the matter that’s on my mind today, I have to say; I’m one of those people who loves meeting new people and getting an insight into their dreams and aspirations. I recently came in contact with a talented lady who wants to capitalize upon her art and crafting abilities with a very unique idea.
The catch however is that Hannah Bloom needs some funding. So she has posted her project on Kickstarter and hopes to get sufficient positive response to see her project through. If you don’t know what Kickstarter is all about, let me give you an idea. It’s a platform where people publish their project outline, requesting those interested in “rewards” (products/services) offered therein to pledge funds for the same. If the project is able to receive its target funding within a specific time period, all the pledges need be paid in exchange for the promised rewards. But if the target funding isn’t met, the project doesn’t go through – no pledges paid, no rewards received. So, essentially, with a Kickstarter project, it’s all or nothing; either you make sure you raise funds, or well, better luck finding funds elsewhere.
When I went through Hannah’s project on Kickstarter, I was instantly taken in by her idea and spirit. She is basically a crafts aficionado who makes various kinds of novelties under the brand-name “Sew Bloom”. Her current venture is a range of Hand-Stamped Phonetics Greeting Cards for which she need some support. I am really eager to bolster her efforts because I found her project to be very different, creative and fun.
So here is what Hannah’s trying to do; she wants to make eco-friendly greeting cards which are hand stamped with simple messages in their phonetic transcription. She got the idea while flipping through an old dictionary and got fascinated by phonetic transcriptions’ of simple words. Interestingly, her first experiment was an “I love You” card, which in my personal opinion, looks incredibly striking and chic. Though the current greeting cards are a limited range, she would like to expand it with custom-made messages if her project is successful. These cards would be great for gifting to a loved one – they can be framed, set up on mantles, hung on the wall – the possibilities are endless. Since they are handmade and stamped personally be her, each card is unique too. I personally extend my wholehearted support to Hannah for I love the idea behind it; beautifully engraved messages, in an off-beat phonetic expression. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
