About Of Herbs and Altars

With this Patreon account, I will be running giveaways of Woolly Things - mostly dragon scale gloves, but there are many ideas in the pipeline - every 6 weeks or sooner (you may alternately enter by post; details of how to do that can be found in the giveaway announcement video) - if you're willing to be buy me a cheap drink every month, for $2 you're in the running for all Woolly Creations! (& if you want to give more than that, you are a fabulous being, & I'll have a long hard think about how I can say thank you, be it in vastly discounted gloves, custom creations...there has to be something!) I'll also be making the odd extra thing to sell on Etsy once the ball's rolling, & Patrons will get the heads up on those a week in advance of everyone else, so if you've ever asked if you can buy a pair of my gloves, hopefully soon you'll have spooky warm fingers! The materials for dragon scale gloves are unfortunately expensive, which has kept me from outright selling them previously; on Etsy gloves of a similar quality to mine are sold for $110-140 per pair - I have no other words but OUCH for that, even though I know it's perfectly fair given the price of materials & time! All in all, this seems like a better way to let me knit like mad, create every idea in my brain, & then get those gloves to the people who really want them, but who don't or can't drop the price of a weekend away on a pair of flipping gloves, dude!

So, if all goes well, I'll be funnelling the funds from this Patreon into video ideas too ambitious for my current wallet, & also into the creation of some t-shirts - now, before you groan in despair, I have zero interest in creating anything that relates directly to me; I don't want my name, or face, on any of it, because I can't think why in God's left armpit anyone, self included, would want to wear such a spectacle of rampaging egotism! What I do want to make, are t-shirts I would personally like to wear - you know I'm endlessly wailing about the cringy status of many gothy t-shirt slogans out there these days, so I think it's high time to step up & see if I can do a better damn job ;) And once again, as soon as the batch is ready, Patrons will get first pick of the litter!

And thusly, we shall discover the features of this strange new place together - there appears to be an audio post function, so there is the likelihood of the odd podcast type waffling, & song in process, plus, once there's a few of you, releasing videos to selected tiers a day prior to everyone else, so that hopefully I can get back to the smaller, closer world of comment interaction that things used to be - I'd really like that :)

On a deeper, bigger-picture note, I think Patreon is truly beautiful concept - I've watched my eldest brother struggle to make ends meet as an artist for much of his life, & as a late-diagnosis Aspergian, I spent my entire youth wondering how in hell I was ever meant to find my way through this world that was never made for people like me...& YouTube, for a while, became that path. But the state of demonetisation now means that what was a promising career path 4 years ago, has now become a dead end, with all the subjects I'm most passionate about speaking on deemed 'too controversial' - on the new YouTube, the only ways to make genuine money are to become a bland un-boxing Haul Girl, or to pretend I'm a gamer & get on Twitch in my underwear, or to just stir up drama & hate for views, none of which are routes I have any desire to go down...so here we are. It's time to try something scary & new, in the hope I can knit my way to freedom - out of this poky bedroom, & into the long-overdue independent life that I am finally so very, very ready for. Huge forever-love to anyone willing to join me on this Grand Hobbitty Adventure! <3
