From Little Things Big Things Grow.

My pozible is now closed and thanks to you I am able to have a fabulous adventure.

Also by a stoke of accidental genius your payments came through over two financial years and so I wont have to try to explain crowdsourcing to the tax office this year.

Sitting here trying to write down how thankful and grateful I am is proving to be trickier than I thought though. I have the Paul Kelly song, “From Little Things Big Things Grow” playing as an earworm inside my head, as this has grown into a rather big thing.

So many of you helped me by pledging for rewards that I am now able to add in an extra flight and fly into Kalgoorlie from Perth a day earlier than planned. This then gives me a FULL free day to organise a tour of Lake Ballard to see The Gormley installation.

Thanks to mutual friends and the power of Social Media Rydges Kalgoorlie Resort and Spa are also sponsoring me and helping out with my accommodation while I am in Kalgoorlie attending the Regional Arts Summit.

I am sure this lovely pool will soothe my delicate Tasmanian skin after I have fried in the name of art at Lake Ballard trying to get just the right photo of just one more sculpture. I am also sure that the glare from my Tasmanian complexion will guarantee me a nice bit of poolside space.

So now, the work begins, as you have all played your parts magnificently and made me feel very valued, it is now my turn to make some art and post it off to you.

Stay tuned. I will post some photos of the studio chaos soon, complete with evidence of Monty the puppy helper (he has already nibbled one small rainbow cup)

Once again

    I’m so glad that everything has come together so well for you Kim. Your pozible campaign was just fantastic – the perfect example of how crowdsourcing can be used in a productive and positive way. I can’t wait for my parcel to arrive (I know it will be a while) and I’m looking forward to seeing your photos of the event.

      Thanks Susan, I have been involved in a number of crowdsourcing ventures over the years, but this was the first time the funds were for me. It was very different to be asking for myself rather than for someone else, different and awkward feeling. But ultimately it was a fantastic process.
      I am aiming to have all the rewards posted off by mid September, which gives me plenty of time to alternately procrastinate, faff about and then panic as the clock ticks towards the deadline.
      Thank you so much for being part of this adventure. We need to think up a suitable hashtag closer to the date.
