I'm Kristin Elsen, aka Tibbin, and these are my designs. Tibbin is a nickname bestowed upon me by my dad when I was a kid, and it's stuck ever since. It means nothing and everything.

I've collected pins and flair in some capacity for as long as I can remember. In 2018, burned out and drained after working as a corporate graphic designer for the greater part of 12 years, I decided to finally become a maker of the things I've loved collecting for so long.

I run this one-woman operation out of my home office in Durham, NC, with my two cats.

Thank you for your support as I pursue this wild ambition. I literally couldn't do any of this without you, and you all mean the world to me.
