Hi All! Earlier today I launched The Jewel Box® Home Book: Smaller House, Happier Life on Kickstarter. What does that mean? I am using Kickstarter, a funding site, to raise money to publish the Jewel Box® Home coffee table storybook about my story from big house envy to falling in love with my smaller home. To take a look at the project click HERE. This link will also let you make a pledge to fund the project. Typically people pledge small amounts ranging from $1 to $25, but please don't feel obligated. Your good luck wishes mean so much!
By the way, Jewel Box® is already generating a little controversy. I hear some people on the North Shore may be offended by the phrase 'Smaller House, Happier Life'. They are very happy in their bigger houses. I really don't want to offend anyone. Happiness can exist in any size house, I just happen to believe, that it is easier to come by in a smaller home. Of course size is relative. Warren Buffett's house is a Jewel Box® compared to Bill Gates house. Also, some of my very best friends live in large houses, but they have lovely Jewel Box® touches that make their homes warm and wonderful.
I am also hearing some grumbling from tiny house fans who think Jewel Box® is too big to be considered a small house. The lively discussions Jewel Box® is creating about house size are terrific! I love a good debate!
Again, the link to the Jewel Box® Home Book project is HERE. Looking forward to making this journey with you!!!
