i have been thinking
i added another tier to my patreon page
a $1 tier where i can post my art journal pages
works in progress
& sneak peeks
which means i will not be posting as much here
it’s an exercise
in taking myself seriously
and trying to make a go of my dreams
but as a girl
who always gives it away
and who doesn’t mind
giving it away
loving the idea of a world of trade &
a world where money is not an issue
but today i have to buy
clothes & shoes for my kids
buy food for my pets
buy art supplies so i can keep doing art
spend money to support
other artists & writers
(also, one day soon, pay rent &
the bulk of my posts
will be over on my patreon page
for one dollar a month.
i understand if this is too much
i totally get it.
but maybe, just maybe i can get some patrons
& then be able to afford to do the same
for my fellow
artists & writers & crafters of all types.
whether you join me over on patreon or not, i really really really appreciate your support.
& i’m not disappearing from here, i just have realized how much energy i spend on this site and wonder what would happen if i put that energy into trying to earn money for my art.
