Melissa Hill is creating a more sustainable and beautiful world

I am a priestess in the the ADF tradition, a spirit worker, a homesteader, a spiritual artist, and a writer.  I swore my oath thusly:

I swore to serve the folk, love the land, and honor the gods.

So that's what I do, in a nutshell. But if you peer inside that shell there is a world of work that happens.  You can help support that work as well as get inside peeks on my ongoing projects, choose topics for me to research and blog about, and get exclusive videos and blogs of my processes to make life more sustainable, beautiful, and child friendly.

I try and make as much of my content as free as possible, with the idea that the patreon and my etsy store will fund that content.  This is a business model I can get behind. It's how Wikipedia, Welcome to Night Vale, and The Guardian all run their businesses. I know that paid pagan clergy are simply not possible at this point, but I want to pioneer how we might actually leverage our skills to do such a thing, because this calling drives me.  

I see myself as working to create a world that is more sustainable, beautiful, and equitable.  I run funerals, weddings, baby and momma blessings, coming of age rites, high days, moon rites and more for my local community.  I live and work in the depressed economy of the Rust Belt, and sometimes the people I support have a hard time paying the $42.00 a year for grove and ADF membership.  

I've been blogging through various methods for well over a decade now, and have created a great deal of online content, including articles, coloring pages, and videos.  My hope now is to earn enough money to update my video recording equipment so that I can start recording what I do again.  My videos focus on trancework, crafts, sustainability techniques, farming skills, and all the wide range of what I do.  I also hope to begin to record my workshops so that they can go digital too.  

There are a great many pagan solitaries out there and I want to reach out and help create the things they need to have a thriving spiritual practice. I want to keep serving my community locally as well as my wider online community. Please help me to do so by becoming a supporter today. Thank you.

This is for people who want to get fun packages in the mail! You can get my wheel of the year images every six weeks or you can choose to get new art with a slightly more flexible time frame.  I am working on creating some great new things including 13 images for the moons of the year and jointed paper puppets that tell the story of Idunn and the Golden Apples!  I love sending mail to people, so let me send mail to you!

You get to choose:  either I paint you one 16 X 20 painting commission or I send you the tee-shirt, and an extra large super box filled with twice the pagan goodies!  This can include charm or devotional works designed specifically for you, and you can choose what species of bones I will send, including a skull, which I will decorate and charm for you.

You will get access to all my videos, blog posts, and work in progress pics, plus once a year I will do an entranced divination work, charm, or devotional work on your behalf. We can arrange this through facetime, google chat, or email.
Goals
$192 of $500 per month
I've worked in sustainable art for years.  One of my deep interests is blockprinting with soy based ink, but I have found that doing that on fabric is not possible.  If I reach this goal I will be able to afford an intermediate screen print setup so that transfer my block prints to screen prints and use soy based inks on fabric to create tee-shirts, bags, and baby onesies.
