When I'm feeling crappy, creating brings me up. When I'm scattered, creating helps me focus. Creating things -- beautiful things, weird things, things that surprise me even while I'm making them -- is (slightly to my own surprise, & entirely contrary to my elementary school aptitude tests) the center of my life.

(Okay, so are the cats.)

So Patreon's whole 'X is creating...' pitch was sort of, well, perfect. So, here I am. Making surprise jewelry & random-stuff-in-a-bowl soap & taking lots & lots of cat pictures.

& here's you along for the journey! That's pretty awesome. Welcome along!

I'm along for the journey?

You are! I make some of my posts public, so everyone can see some of what I'm doing. If you want to see more (& support what I'm doing here), become one of my patrons!

By doing so you'll be able to follow along with everything I'm trying to do here, including:

  • make lots of jewelry (mostly out of trash);
  • create new soap scents;
  • write about how I do things, including some philosophizing stuff I don't have the nerve to post anywhere else;
  • & take lots of pictures of leashcats in really awesome places.
Whether or not you decide to become one of my patrons, your support means a lot to me!

What's this patron thing about?

When you pledge to support me on Patreon, you choose how much you'll be charged every month. This can be as low as a buck a month -- & you'll get rewards based on how much you choose. Those are listed down the side of my Patreon page. (If you pledge enough, you get Stuff!)

You'll get to see progress pictures & commentary when I'm working on something new. Also, there will be cat pictures. I mean, it's me.
kinda sweet

More in-depth progress stuff, more pictures & more commentary, some of which I might even do as a video thinger if y'all manage to talk me into it. Maybe. Also you'll sometimes get first shot at something brand-new I've made.

Plus I'll send you a postcard! With a cat on it! I'll even write stuff on it, JUST FOR YOU. Just once, though, not like, every month, I'd run outa things to say.
holy cats!

All of the above stuff! Plus: every month I'll send you a bar of soap! That I made! (But, alas, only if you live in the US, because shipping to anywhere else has become ridiculous.)
this is where the jewelry happens
$23 or more per month 0 patrons
Instead of soap, you'll get earrings! You get everything else above, though. Cos that's how this works. (Again with the US-only, alas, the shipping.)

Also if anyone is actually pledging at this level I really might start doing videos. It's just that I'm used to the camera pointing _away_ from me, is all.
two things!
$31 or more per month 0 patrons
Soap AND earrings. SO MANY THING. I might even chuck in some lip balm every once in a while. Plus, of course, all the other stuff.
now it's pendants!
$43 or more per month 0 patrons
You have correctly perceived that I will be shipping off a custom, handmade pendant to you EVERY MONTH! (Actually everything I'm shipping off will be custom & handmade, but you're giving me 43 bucks a month, you deserve some over-the-top verbage here.)
WHOA HOLY CRAP
