I told my husband the other night I'd be really happy if we got to $4500. It would leave me enough to pay for the oracle deck and put some into savings for future projects. Then he woke me up this morning and told me we got to $4601. I thought $4500 was ambitious!
We're going to go ahead and order everything that we can once the funds are in our bank account. We are still waiting on several payments that didn't go through the first time, and it actually adds up to a considerable amount of money. So I am hopeful that those people who need to will login and fix their payment method so we can order more decks.
I expect that we will be done shipping the decks by the third week of September. My husband is going to help me get everything ready to go, and our son will be going back to school regularly starting this week, so I am confident that everything will happen much faster and more organized this time.
Thank you all so much for hanging in there with me! This summer has been pretty chaotic and it's not over yet. In two weeks we're leaving for Dragon*Con in Atlanta, and we'll be driving over 2,000 miles to get there. I still have a lot to do to prepare for it, and I'm trying not to freak out but I am pretty stressed out. I've never been before and I have no idea what to take or what to expect.
I'll try to update regularly about what's going on and how things are progressing.
Thank you for supporting my art, and allowing me to keep doing what I love!
