First of all, a picture from this past weekend. And it appropriately highlights GREEN for St. Patrick’s Day, which is today.
Went to L.A. with some friends to see Wicked (my first time) and LOVED it. The talent blew me away.
I’m thrilled that so many of you are doing the “happy dance” about us making the school kit available. I’m happy to address the questions some of you have.
Q: How long do I have to pre-order, to guarantee that I don’t miss out?
A: This Friday (March 21) at 5:00 pm MST will be the last day that you can pre-order and KNOW that you’ll receive your kit(s) when we ship. We will continue taking pre-orders at a first come, first served basis, based on how many kits we have left with the inventory we’ve ordered.
Q: When will the kits ship?
A: June 1.
Q: I went to order, but I’m not sure the site is secure.
A: The main KOTM page with all the information is not a secure site, because it does not need to be. But when you click to order, everything is absolutely secure in the shopping cart.
Q: When is my credit card actually charged?
A: Not until the kits ship in June.
Q: Will you take international orders?
A: YES (yay)! We’ll ship to you, wherever in the world you may be.
Q: Are the memorabilia pockets designed for a 3-ring binder?
A: Yes. The holes are already punched for you and everything fits perfectly into 3-ring binders. Remember: It is not intended for EVERYthing (all the school years) to fit into one album. Depending on how many pages you add to each grade, and how full the memorabilia pockets are, will determine how many albums you’ll need for each child.
Q: Any chance of ordering just the memorabilia pockets?
A: Nope, sorry.
Q: Does the kit come with a list of suppliers in case I need to piece together another one in the future?
A: This kit is made up entirely of the custom designs & colors that I worked on with a super talented graphic designer. That means nothing in the kit comes from another manufacturer. So if you want just some of the pieces or parts of the kit, you just have to get the kit. : )
Q: I already got my kit and wondered about getting more of some of the papers & accents from the kit. Is that possible?
A: All I have to say is … Just WAIT until you see my brand-new kit that will also come out in June.
Q: I got a kit the first time around and noticed a damaged piece. Who do I tell?
A: Contact Vivian (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she’ll take care of you.
Q: I’m new to your blog and not familiar with the school kit. How can I learn more?
A: Go here for the website where you would read about the kit, and also place your order. I have done a couple of video clips showing the kit contents and explaining more about them right here on my blog. Click on February 2008 (on the right) and scroll down to my Feb. 1 and Feb. 6 blog entries.
