I really want to do a Kickstarter. The idea has been bouncing around in my head for about a year. I feel like I need a bit more experience making and shipping chocolates as well as a few more batches to take excellent photos of (side note: find dSLR and charge batteries!) Next weekend I will be doing a local batch of chocolates... 17 orders! I had 3 people order double orders, and those are people I don't even know, coworkers of my brother! I'm excited to see how it goes making about 50% more chocolates this time. It'll be my first time making chocolates in the new place.
Yesterday I ordered the stickers, postcards and business cards for my chocolates. I want to give out postcards to get feedback on the chocolates, stickers are for labeling (which reminds me, I want a brown pen that matches my dark brown logo, for writing the flavor on each). I got a Groupon a while back $17 for $70 worth of merchandise which I used all of and then a little extra. I will be sure to post pictures of my chocolately endeavors, as part of my #55 Kickstarter prep bucket list item!
Off to figure out what flavors I'm going to make next weekend and asses my ingredient situation! Oh, and play with my super awesome puppy.
