Updated 12/5/18

There's no shame in admitting it (and if there is, I refuse to feel any): my Etsy shop The Wytch of the North, which was once successful enough to enable me to quit my day job, is now a part-time venture, a side-hustle for our household. And you know what? That's okay. It actually opens up a huge opportunity for me, because in 2019, instead of spending all my time on the treadmill of being in constant production mode for the shop, I can spend more time digging deep into three of my long-held passions: traditional witchcraft, sewing, and hand spinning. And I can devote more time to sharing those passions with you, too!

Despite the fact that Jo and I are both okay with my part-time status, financial survival is still a bit of a challenge for our household, and I won't pretend otherwise. Things have been looking up this past year, for which I am grateful, and those of you who have continued to support me, both here on Patreon and in my shop, throughout 2018 are largely responsible for that. After having had a really hard time from 2016-2017, in 2018 the shop has returned to being nearly self-supporting (in addition to contributing to groceries)--so yay for that!

But I'm now 53, and I continue to suffer from fibromyalgia, IBS-D, and arthritis--all of which make it impossible for me to hold down a "regular" job. And there is still a gap between what my wife brings home in her paycheck and what we owe for our monthly rent and bills--which is where Patreon comes in. Your support literally helps keep a roof over our heads and our utilities on (for the two of us plus our adorable critters) on a monthly basis.

So, what can you expect to see from me here on Patreon in 2019? Well, I'm decidedly NOT going to launch into another ambitious project like I did with the Lunar Letters (all of which will continue to be available here on my Patreon blog, and which may be organized into an ebook sometime in the next year), because maintaining it became a real struggle for me. Instead, I'm going back to basics: Patreon supporters can expect to know the most about what I'm up to in both my creative and spiritual life, to see it all first, and to have the closest, most candid, and most extensive access to my life and work. This includes early access to blog posts, plus Patreon-only photographs and content (possibly including videos), and more as I feel inspired to share it. Beyond this, there will also be Patreon-exclusive coupons and discounts, and--at the higher tier levels--monthly three-card Tarot readings and occasional physical gifts in the mail. (To give myself space to deepen my own practice, which has admittedly suffered in recent years, I am putting my reading services to the general public on indefinite hiatus, which means that right now being a Patreon supporter at the $15 + monthly level is the ONLY way to get a reading from me.)

For those of you who choose to continue supporting me in 2019: I thank you, and my family thanks you, from the bottom of our hearts. You are a dear friend to us, and we think of you and your generosity every single day. For those of you who join on in 2019: welcome! I truly hope you'll love it here. I aim to make all of my online spaces--including this one--comfortable, warm, inspiring, and helpful...and hopefully more than a little witchy.

Blessed be!
