Here's what happened with pledges processed on October 1st! I round to the nearest dollar for simplicity here c:
Total amount pledged: $57
Amount Deposited: $51 (after transactional fees + Patreon's cut)
Website hosting costs: $12
Taxes deposit (20%): $10 (I probably won't have to pay taxes this year as Patreon income will be <$400, but still better safe than sorry!)
This leaves us with $29 to spend!
I decided to spend it on some upgraded beads for Katara from Fire Mountain Gems, specifically:
Shipping was $6, bringing the order total to just under $24!
This leaves us $5 for some pretty blue dye for the mother of pearl pendant, which I'll pick up at the art store.

This is so exciting! We're upgrading the headdress beads and hand-dyeing and carving Katara's necklace from *actual* mother-of-pearl. This is going to be the prettiest Katara jewelry ever -- and it wouldn't have been possible without you! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. <3
