I love to see other peoples passion and creativity.

One day, when I had nothing to do, I ran across this website: http://www.kickstarter.com

What it does is the advertising/marketing for projects. It’s as simple as that. On this website, there is something for everyone. From music, books, crafts, craziness, you think of something and I guarantee there is project there that would interest you.  The whole idea behind this website is that it gets backers for the projects.  It in itself is brilliant!!!!

So I signed up for their newsletter and each week I get thier newest and most interesting projects.  Sometimes it’s something really outrageous, sometimes it is something so simple, you just have to ask yourself: “Why didn’t I think of that?”

It is such a treat, but a sin as well. You can spend countless hours paging thru the projects and it is really easy to loose track of time. You can search by location, topic, media, etc. Spend some time there – I’ll bet you’ll find something to back.

I found something that I fell in love with and choose to back it: The Constellation QuiltThis project is fully funded now. The were looking to raise $10,500 goal and got 958 backers (at different levels) and raised $149,301.  A huge success. So for my backing, I got the pattern to do make the quilt myself. I am putting it on my list of things to do.  The list is high, but this one I think will be a wonderful gift for a little boy or girl who wants to lay out among the stars.
