Hi I'm Helen A.K.A Haveago Crafter. I make it my mission to to bring fun and cheer to anyone with my range of cards, prints and handmade crafts. I particularly like using fun and inspirational quotes to brighten someone's day.
With this Kickstarter project I am hoping to get a number of various hard enamel pins designs manufactured that are all tied together with the theme of positivity. This Pins of Positivity project combines quotes from some of my favourite television shows with other empowering words.
The pledges put towards this project will allow the manufacture of the initial pin set, with further stretch goals available if we smash this initial target of £250. As we progress through the stretch goals more designs will be unlocked with some extra fun freebies added in for you backers as the project runs to completion.
The initial enamel pins in the Pins of Positivity project are a quote from one of my favourite TV shows - Firefly. In a particularly awesome episode the quote "No power in the 'verse can stop me" is said by Kaylee and repeated later by River after some fantastic heroics. No spoilers here folks. There are two colourways in the initial fund:
Gold plated pin with black enamel, and
- Silver plated pin with dark blue enamel.
If the initial funding is reached we will then begin working towards the stretch goals. The stretch goals are as follows:
£400 - "No power in the 'verse" enamel pins in two extra glitter colourways (black with gold plating and blue with silver plating) UNLOCKED
£450 - Vinyl sticker, (1x sticker, 2 x 2 inches in size) for all backers of 1 pin and above available to choose from unlocked designs of the four main designs UNLOCKED
- £600 - "Females are strong as hell" enamel pins in two colourways (rose gold plating with pink enamel, and gold plating with white glitter enamel). Quote from the fabulous TV show - Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
£650 - Surprise reward to be revealed when the £600 stretch goal is reached for backers of 3 pins and above.
£750 - "Ovaries before brovaries" enamel pin in two colourways (gold plating with bright rainbow enamels, and silver plating with pastel enamels). Quote from Lesley knope in the TV show Parks and Recreation.
£800 - Surprise reward to be revealed when the £750 stretch goal is reached for backers of 1 pin and above.
- £900 - "I'm not bossy I'm the boss" enamel pin in two colourways (silver plating with turquiose enamel, and gold plating with black enamel). Quote from the invincible Beyonce Knowles.
I have some more designs up my sleeve for more pins and surprises if the current stretch goals are smashed!!!
Running a kickstarter campaign allows a risk free approach for the creator to gather pre-orders before commiting to the costly manufacture of the product. The pledges are gathered at the end of a successful campaign and a survey is sent out to backers to determine their choice of reward.
Exclusive rewards and prices are available to my Kickstarter backers that will not be available elsewhere. If this Kickstarter is successful, any pins left over from sending out to backers will become stock in my Etsy store. The RRP of the pins will vary in my store to reflect the varying manufacturing costs of each pin, and all will be priced at £7.50 or above. By contributing to this project you are securing your pins at bargain prices. As Kickstarter projects are all or nothing, if the initial fund of £250 for the first pins are not reached you will not be charged anything as the project will not go ahead due to it being unsuccessful.
There are a limited number of earlybird pledges available. Each tier of pins will have these limited pledges and after these have been used up regular pledges will be left. If you want to secure these earlybird prices please place your pledge early to make sure that you don't miss out.
Pledges can be made for the following tiers:
- Donation of £1
- 1 pin (earlybird and regular)
- 2 pins (earlybird and regular)
- 3 pins (earlybird and regular)
- 4 pins (earlybird and regular)
- 5 pins earlybird and regular)
- 6 pins (earlybird and regular)
If you would like more pins then please ask me and I can add more pledge tiers.

I will be using Royal Mail to ship pledges out to backers.
Rewards for the 1 and 2 pin tiers will be shipped out using standard delivery. This method is not tracked. If you would like to have tracked delivery (which I recommend) you can add the extra cost to your pledge (please see below).
Standard delivery costs for 1 to 2 pins:
UK - £1
- EU - £2
- US - £3
- Rest of World - £4
If you have pledged for a 1 or 2 pin tier and would like to upgrade to a tracked method of delivery please add the following amounts to your pledge, with a message on the pledge that you would like tracked shipping:
- UK - £1
- EU - £5
- US - £5
- Rest of World - £5
Rewards for the 3 pin tiers and above will be shipped using a tracked delivery method only:
UK - £3
- EU - £8
- US - £9
- Rest of World - £10
I highly recommend using a tracked method of shipping as with standard delivery the contents are not insured if they go missing.
Expected shipping times:
UK - approximately 2 working days
- EU - approximately 7 working days
- US - approximately 10 working days
- Rest of World - approximately 10 working days
I have been purposefully cautious with the shipping time estimates so to not leave you disappointed. There may be a chance that your reward may arrive earlier which will be a bonus, but I think that it is better to be safe than sorry.

Risks and challenges
The pins are being manufactured for me, which means there may be unforeseen circumstances that may delay the production of the rewards. Hopefully there will be no delays, but if there are, backers will be informed via Kickstarter updates. I have been in close communications with my manufacturers, and they have given me confidence that they can fulfill their obligations for the timeline of this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
