I'm Kathy d. Clark, the girl behind Lace & Whimsy Studio. I’m a self-taught illustrator and digital creative. You can find me on laceandwhimsy.com, selling art prints, stickers, and enamel pins made from my original illustrations. My art is very feminine and self-indulgent, often featuring celestial motifs, pastels, magical witchy vibes, and vintage elements. I hope my work inspires you to play and create more, and to live a more whimsical life. 

ABOUT MY PATREON ☾:゚
So… what exactly is Patreon, you may be wondering?
Patreon is a platform that allows patrons (you!) to support creators (me!) and in exchange, you get access to some cool perks. All tiers get access to exclusive behind-the-scenes peeks at what I’m working on and bits about my artistic process. You’re typically the first to know about new products coming to the shop. I’ll sometimes even ask for your feedback and let you vote on ideas to help me decide what to work on next!
Depending on what tier your subscribe to, I also post downloadable content (like art prints and printable sticker sheets) and even send out packages of goodies to my patrons. More on that below. 

HOW IT WORKS ☾:゚
Choose which reward tier sounds like the best fit for you, then sign up through Patreon. You’ll instantly have access to previous posts to browse through. Then, if applicable, your goodies will be sent out to you shortly.
Your card will be charged on the first of each month. Please note that your initial payment will be processed the day you sign up. (This is to deter people from pledging, browsing and downloading content, then canceling their pledge before their card is charged. This wouldn’t be fair to me as a creator, or to my current patrons who are playing fair.) See FAQs below for more specific details on how payments work. 

REWARD TIER DETAILS ☾:゚
$1 - TIP JAR
  • You are now officially a PATRON OF THE ARTS. In addition to my undying love and gratitude, you now get to stay in the loop with behind the scenes content, access to blog posts, and sneak peeks.

$5 - LET’S GET DIGITAL

  • All access pass to all previous content - including printable goodies!
  • Plus NEW downloadable goodies shared here on Patreon each month. (I usually release a print or a sticker sheet.) You’re welcome to save these files to your computer to use forever and ever, but only for personal use. Personal use means that means you may not email them to your bestie and you absolutely may not sell anything you make. But you may certainly craft with them for personal projects!)
  • This tier also gives you access to a 30% discount code valid for the the digital section of my web shop.

$10 - WHIMSYMAIL  
*Most popular tier!*
  • With this tier, I actually send you an envelope of snail mail every single month! "Whimsymail" usually consists of at least two sticker sheets and some other fun things, such as cardstock die cuts or mini art prints. Each month is a little different. You generally receive goodies that have yet to be released in the shop. Each month’s envelope contains approximately a $15 value of products if they were to be purchased individually. Whimsymail shipping is complimentary. (International patrons, it would be lovely of you to add $1 to your pledge amount to offset additional postage, but this is certainly not required.)
  • SHOP DISCOUNT! - 20% shop discount code that’s valid on almost everything. (Some things like gift sets are excluded from the Patron Discount since those sets are already discounted to begin with. I gotta make a profit, sorrynotsorry.)

$30 - WHIMSYBOX

  • Can’t get enough of Lace & Whimsy goodies? You’re gonna love this reward tier. You’ll get the same set of products the $10 tier receives and then some! Extra stickers, usually an enamel pin, a 5x7 print, and whatever else I feel inclined to throw in there for you. Each month is a different assortment - I like to keep it fresh and have unexpected surprises whenever possible. (Usually about a $40+ value if items were to be purchased individually in the shop.)
  • Shipping is complimentary for USA residents. Unfortunately, if you are outside the USA, I must ask for you to add $10 to your pledge amount ($40/month total). My apologies! I wish there were a cheaper way to ship internationally.
  • And oh hey, you still get the shop discount mentioned above! This tier is a really good value. Just sayin’.

$60 - VIP  
*Limited spaces*
  • For this tier, you’ll receive the same products that are in the $30 tier Whimsybox AND a sticker book customized just for you...
  • Details: Currently, I’ve been offering my VIP patrons a 6 page sticker book made in whatever size fits their planning style. Just let me know your favorites of my designs (browse here). You can totally mix and match from different sheets and collections. For example, say you want a full page of “The Moon Tarot Card” sticker printed up so each sticker is about a half inch wide so you can mark in your planner when you want to do a tarot reading. Or maybe you want a full page of little pink tea cups from the Love Spell collection so you can use them in your planner to indicate you’re meeting a friend for coffee that day. Gotcha covered. I can even make some subtle color tweaks and create custom text-only stickers like “Yoga - 8 pm.” Or something. I don’t know your life, you tell ME. I’ve also had VIP patrons just say, “I use a B6 size Traveler’s Notebook and love your celestial and witchy stickers. Surprise me.” You can be as vague or specific as you'd like. This is all about you.
    PS: Sticker books not your thing? No problem! We can do something else fun. Want me to print up some vinyl stickers for your laptop? Or just curate some goodies from the shop to surprise you with? I’m happy to chat with you and figure out a reward that fits your style. You’re a VIP and I want you to feel like it! The only hard rule here is I can’t create NEW designs for you as part of this package. I’m not accepting illustration commissions at this time, but I would love for you to have access to my existing designs printed up in a way that works for you and makes ya feel special. xo

☾:゚☾:゚☾:゚

To all of you who have been following my work, have shared my content, or offered kind words of encouragement -- you are already supporting me and I cherish every one of you! I hope to be able to keep on creating and inspiring. Your support on Patreon helps make that a reality for me while allowing me to connect more intimately with you. Thank you!!

FAQ / the fine print

Q: When are rewards mailed out?
A:
Rewards are mailed the first week of the month. Everyone’s card gets charged on the first. Meanwhile I’m busy printing and cutting sticker sheets, stuffing envelopes, and drinking too much coffee. I aim to mail everything out by the 5th (and usually do). Definitely no later than the 10th of the month at the absolute latest. USA patrons will receive their goodies within a few days from mailing. International patrons, you know the deal. It takes a little longer.

Q: I still haven’t received my Whimsymail. What if my package is lost?
A:
If you haven’t received your Whimsymail by the 20th of the month, message me. If you’re pledged at the $30 tier, I can look up your tracking number. The $10 tier envelopes are untracked. We’ll discuss options and I’ll make it right, no worries.

Q. Can I cancel at any time?
A:
Of course!! It would be kinda weird if you couldn’t, right?
Once your card is charged on first of the month, that month is not refundable. You will still receive your rewards for that month. Once you cancel your pledge, you will not be charged the following month. Plus you can cancel right through Patreon without having to interact with me. (PS: I’m never offended if patrons cancel or decrease their pledge! I myself often switch up which creators I support and which things I subscribe to - I get it! And you’re welcome back here at any time.)

Q. What happens if I increase or decrease my pledge in the middle of the month?
A:
If you choose to increase your monthly pledge amount mid-month, you will be charged the difference at that time. For example, if you are pledged at $1 per month and choose to increase to the $10 tier, you would be charged $9 the day you increase your pledge, then $10 on the first of next month. And YES, you’ll be sent rewards for the current month!
If you wish to decrease your pledge in the middle of the month, Patreon will simply charge you the new amount the following month.

Q: Are your Patreon rewards appropriate for all ages?
A:
Mostly. I do have many products with swear words in my shop, but I don’t include those as a part of Whimsymail because I don’t like to send products with swear words to anyone unsolicited. Any new products I release that have swear words will just be available in the shop, a la carte. My art does occasionally contain nudity (such as my mermaid collection). It’s rare, but I make no promises about future collections. Boobs are fun to draw, what can I say?

Q: My card was declined. What now?
A:
Good news! you can fix that right through Patreon. Then once your payment is current, I’ll get a notification to send out your rewards, if applicable. There’s no need to message me. (BTW, I will not reach out to you to let you know your card is declined. I don’t have time and find it awkward! You are responsible for making sure your payment goes through. I’m pretty sure Patreon sends you an email automatically.)
