1. Craft the ’80s.

    Lindsey Porter makes homemade felt accessories inspired by outdated technology from the 1980s. She carefully sketches out her retro fantasies on paper before transforming them, by hand, into functional items.

    Taking cues from vintage mixtapes found in thrift stores, she adorns each item with hand-stitched messages and retro-themed graphics. Nostalgia has never felt better.

  2. "Happiness is officially on its way."

    Well, that’s some good news! At least, it is for backers of Megan Mitzel’s Funnygrams project. A simple but sweet idea, Funnygrams pair silly messages on magnets with sour candy and are sent along to you, your friends, your lovahs, or whomever!

    Sayings range from “I like your face!” to “I like yo’ swag” and every sentiment in between, but no matter the message, it’s guaranteed to bring charmingly awkward expressions to faces.

    This marks Mitzel’s fourth Kickstarter project — we’re eager to see what she gets up to next. Turkeygrams?

  3. Ryan Sohmer has been a full-time writer for about ten years, but The Bear marks the first time he’s ever done anything “ridiculously personal.” A series of  beautifully detailed paintings that reflect on the bond between a first time parent and their child, the work is based closely on Ryan’s own experiences raising his young son. It’s silly, honest, unbelievably sweet, and makes us sort of wish we had kids — or at least a baby lion.

  4. A charming 8-bit adventure about “loss, redemption, and lots of quacking,” Duck Quest follows a lovably clueless mother duck on her adventure to find her lost ducklings through a city park. She’ll meet a host of kooky characters along the way, including a French painter and a hot dog vendor, ensuring a maximumally adorable avian adventure from start to finish. Since cute stuff is good for Mondays, we made it our Project of the Day.
