Hi friends!
We're a medium sized Catholic family who are trying to be as awesome as the God we worship. If you like the kind of stuff we do, toss a buck or two in the pledge jar. The hope is that, some day, we'll be able to travel around the world, helping other Catholics become better parents, house-holders, and stewards of this good world.

What's that? You want some examples of stuff we've accomplished so you have some assurance we're not going to waste our time watching Game of Thrones and playing flappy bird?
Fair enough, below is a rough cross-section of who we are:
Hi I'm Paul, the father of this family.
I've done dramatic readings of  booksarticles (like this one), and rambles on various topics. I improvise (mostly on the piano) as well as sing both solo and in a chorale. I also like writing my own lyrics. I even made a terrible music video! I maintain three blogs, wrote a 120K-word science-fiction novel (building on the work of Shamus Young with whom I also co-host a weekly podcast) and have another book in the works. I've also written some long-form poetryI've done a number of 3d modeling commissions and collaborations, one of which was a feature length movie. I maintain my own website, mess with Python, wrote some code for Minecraft, and enjoy crafting parametric geometry. I like making real life objects as well, including ferrocement structures and sculpturestree fortswood carving, and plate armor. I also act, and have starred as the mad king Macbeth, the crazy nephew Teddy, the murderous king Claudius, and a few others.
So, yeah, I like making things and keeping things well organized. I'm not on Facebook like Anna, but you can contact me right here on Patreon!

Hi, I'm Anna, the Mom.
I paint, sew, arrange flowers, garden, cook, run a local Catholic Mom's group, give presents to everyone I know on their birthday, and remind my husband to not crash his motorcycle. Oh, I also take care of our six kids: Leah, Charlette, Teddy, Barney, Cody, and Gwen.
I have a photographic memory, so I can still find things even when it's messy, and I like to improvise instead of scheduling things. No structure! No rules! I do whatever I want!
I don't have a website like Paul, but you can find me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/anna.t.spooner

You're still here? Great! The pledge button is just over there! To the right! Patreon will automatically charge your credit card every month for whatever you pledge, and you can cancel at any time with no fees. Even a dollar a month helps!

Thanks for supporting our vision of industrious family creativity!
