Be sure to leave a comment if you have time! Adding your own comments helps my posts get more attention than simply sharing. Let me know who your favorite Goddess is or what your favorite design is from this set. What pin design are you looking forward to most (or was your favorite in the past?)
Or if you'd like to download graphics to use to construct your own posts, you can view my Press Kit for this campaign here.
Our journey with the enamel pin series is almost complete! Thanks so much for your support thus far. This is going to be a beautiful series when it is finished and it's all thanks to your support!

Greetings, Backers! I wanted to pop in and remind everyone that if you have not filled out your survey and paid for your shipping that your item will be declared abandoned and your pledge considered a donation on November 6th!
My records show that 7 Backers have not filled out their surveys. They have been contacted via PMs and email and will not be contacted again after this point.
Everyone else should have definitely received their pins by now. Please let me know via PMs if you have not!
Thanks so much to all of you who supported this project. We have made some beautiful pins together!

I'm happy to report that I've dropped off ALL the packages that were in the queue for this Kickstarter at the Post Office this morning! There are two packages that I did not send because I am creating ink drawings for their coloring books, but everyone else should have their packages soon! Your tracking notices should be in your email inboxes (be sure to check your spam boxes as well, as the notices came from Backerkit, my fulfillment management tool).
Shipping Cutoff and Abandoned Items
If you are reading this and you never paid for your shipping or have not heard from me at all, please drop me a line via private messages here within Kickstarter so I can sort you out! Backerkit shows that I still have 11 people who never filled out their surveys. I have contacted each of these individuals via private message on Kickstarter and have not heard any reply.
You have until NOVEMBER 6th to fill out your survey and pay for shipping or your pledge will be considered a donation and your items returned to my inventory!

Thanks to all of you who helped make these pins a reality! They came out more beautiful than I could have hoped. I hope you love them as much as I do!

GODDESSES OF AUTUMN Enamel Pins Launched! + Shipping Updates
5 months ago

Happy news that the first day of fall has chimed in the arrival of the GODDESSES OF AUTUMN to Kickstarter! If you loved the Summer pins, you should definitely check out the latest set themed around the goddesses for September, October, and November. They're some of my favorite designs, yet!
I have another Early Bird discount tier available for the GODDESSES OF AUTUMN pins campaign, which is limited by slots and NOT by date like the Summer pins campaign was, so reserve yours while you can!
I've also opened up pre-orders for the GODDESSES OF SUMMER online, if you have friends who missed out on getting pins while they were available via this campaign. I ordered about 100 extra per design, so be sure to snag yours if you haven't yet before this first printing is gone! Find them in my Etsy shop.
Pre-orders for the GODDESSES OF SUMMER pins will be shipping in mid-October, if not sooner! I want to be sure I take care of getting all the last few shipments out for my Kickstarter Backers first, of which only 24 shipments remain as of this writing. My mom is a packing QUEEN and helped me knock out a ton of shipments over the past few days!
The final few shipments include a couple of special items, like book sketches, that I'll have to take time to produce, so please be patient while I work on getting these final few packages taken care of.
Once you receive your pins, I'd love it if you could snap a pic and tag me on social media! Give them the hashtag #summergoddesspins. I love to know you're happy with them and also to see what fun uses you've found for the pins! I've been told folks have been using my pins as brooches, scarf adornments, etc. You guys are so creative! What are you using (or planning to use) yours for?
Till next time, thanks again!
I will have one more post to make here to let everyone know when all packages are shipped and then I will be going radio silence unless I have a super important update that pertains to the Summer pins specifically. I don't want to clutter your inboxes too much while the GODDESSES OF AUTUMN campaign is going on now, too!
