Hi! I'm Amanda, an illustrator and (only slightly obsessed) bibliophile!
Growing up, Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite book series and the story still has a special place in my heart. It's only natural that I'd turn to L.M. Montgomery's beloved characters for my first-ever hard enamel pin designs!
This campaign will fund the production of TWO pins—after all, what's the point of being a Kindred Spirit all by yourself? Anne and Diana can be kept together as a set or shared with your own Bosom Friend Forever as the perfect gift!
Each pin will be checked for quality before being mounted on a specially designed backing card and protected by a clear cello bag. The pins will be shipped securely in bubble mailers, with an extra layer of bubble wrap inside to make sure they arrive safely!
Here's the tentative timeline. I will keep you updated during the production and fulfillment process if I run into any delays!
- June: Kickstarter Campaign
- July: Funds are deposited, production begins
- August: Pins arrive
- September: Pins are packaged & shipped
Thank you for stopping by! This campaign is a short one, so I appreciate everyone who pledges or shares this campaign so very much--I hope that together we can reach the goal and make these pins a reality!

How Does Kickstarter Work?
When you pledge money by choosing one of the reward levels, you are basically pre-buying the pins, which helps me cover the cost of production--it’s a good deal for both of us!
Your card is not charged until the campaign has finished successfully. If the funding goal is not reached, you will not be charged.
When your reward has shipped, you'll get an email with your package's tracking number. International backers are responsible for any customs or VAT charges.
If the combination of pins you want is not available in one of the existing reward levels, you can add extra pins to your pledge for $10.
How do I edit or change my pledge level?
If you would like to choose a different reward level or if you want to increase your pledge for extra pins, this is how you do it:
1) Go to the main project page. In the green "You're a backer!" box click the blue button that says "Manage".
2) On the next page, click the button that says, "Change your pledge". You can either increase your current pledge amount OR change your pledge level.
3) Once you have edited your pledge amount or level, click "Continue" and then "Confirm". That's it! Drop me a note to let me know what the extra funds are for. :)
Risks and challenges
Although this is my first pin campaign, I have several successful Kickstarters under my belt and run an online shop, so I am confident and excited to fulfill this Kickstarter and send you your own BFF pins! Since this is my first time producing pins, I may run into unexpected delays but I will be sure to keep you in the loop throughout the campaign and fulfillment process and let you know of any delays. Pin colors and line widths may vary slightly from the concept design shown.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
