We are on schedule.
All backers who pledged for three or more timepieces;
You will be contacted for address confirmations by the end of July.
Pledges for double glass and single glass will follow in August and September.
Triple Pledges for the minimal timepieces begin shipping in October.
That is as far as I feel comfortable estimating at this time. I will have a more accurate estimate for all remaining clocks on our next and final Kickstarter update, July 3rd.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS?
Don't worry if you've moved, there is no need to update your address at this time. We are reaching out to backers one-at-a-time to confirm your address before we ship. Once you are contacted, and you respond with a confirmation of your address, your clock(s) will ship within two to four weeks.
Assembly, testing, packaging, and shipping all require a considerable amount of time. However, I'm getting better, faster and really enjoying the process; especially with Ssong's help packaging and shipping.
IN THE PAST
I used to push myself non-stop (to the detriment of my health) in a mad rush to satisfy orders, and relieve the anticipatory tension I share with every backer.
IN THE PRESENT
I am working at a steady pace, making sure I take care of myself and patiently assembling each clock with focused intention.
This might be the happiest and deeply content I've ever felt in my life. You are a big part of helping me make The Present again and I'm grateful you took a chance on this project, thank you.
I know this has been challenging for many of you and I want to assure you I will deliver your pledge. I'm over the moon for you to finally, after all of this time, get the gift(s) I'm making for you in time.
FULL MOON NEWSLETTER
After the next and final Kickstarter update on July 3rd, I will continue the full moon updates through my own newsletter on August 1st. This shift will allow me to begin focusing my communication efforts on the thought-provoking elements of The Present I'm most passionate about.
The Present is about much more than its physical manifestation and I look forward to sharing my ideas with you; through my own lens, not through the lens of Kickstarter.
DO I NEED TO SIGN UP TO YOUR NEWSLETTER?
If you receive this Kickstarter update; you will receive my first newsletter. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere; each newsletter will contain a section reporting on the progress of backer shipments.
HOW REALISTIC ARE THESE SHIPPING WINDOWS?
At this stage in the project, I wouldn't set expectations if I did not have confidence I could deliver within, or very close to the stated timeframes. I'm dedicated to completing all backer orders and moving forward into the future, with both feet planted firmly in the present.
