Since we elves enjoy making things at work and in our spare time, we love creative projects from other folks as well—be it yummy food, lovely music, or cute crafts. So, it’s time once again this year to highlight some fabulous festive projects that are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, a website whose mission is “to help bring creative projects to life.”
Wear your love for Christmas on your lapel with one of these ugly Christmas sweater pins. Made from soft enamel, choose between Santa’s reindeer, Frosty the snowman, Christmas tree, party lights, candy cane, North Pole penguin, North Pole bunny, or Gingerbread. [Although, as a North Pole resident, I have to point out that that should be South Pole penguin!]
Back this campaign here and receive one or more pins. Campaign ends on Tuesday, 5 December.
A fun, wintery tale, Snow Day! A Story Told in 24 Poem Forms features 24 different, classic forms of poetry along with custom, hand drawn illustrations. Children will enjoy the amusing story, while parents and teachers will appreciate the variety of poetry. The book even includes an index of all the poem forms, should kiddos want to try their hand at writing a poem.
Back Snow Day! on Kickstarter here. Campaign ends this Friday, 1 December.
Cacao Review creates ethical, micro-batch chocolate treats, and by backing their campaign, you can try their limited edition craft chocolate.

Based in Brooklyn, Woodward Extract Co. produces and bottles small-batch flavour extracts, and for the holiday season, they are offering a Winter Cocktail Kit that contains four festive flavours: cardamom, clove, star anise, and sage. With these tinctures, you will be able to mix interesting cocktails using the included recipe cards—or come up with recipes all your own.
Up your mixology game by backing this campaign. Rewards include the Winter Cocktail Kit, Cardamom Mulling Kit, cocktail class for two, and more. Campaign ends on Thursday, 14 December.
Not surprisingly, all of us up here at the North Pole adore the film Elf, so of course I love these Elf-inspired enamel pins. All four pins have the Christmas spirit, and three include some fun details: Mr. Narwal’s tusk and “Son of a nutcracker” are glittery and the World’s Best Cup of Coffee sign glows in the dark.
If you want these pins, back this campaign today, as it ends this Thursday, 30 November.
