Thank you so much for supporting my work! 

For months, I have been dreaming (literally, in my sleep) of an herbal oracle deck and an online home for my love of herbalism. While I know there are many decks out there, my sleeping brain has created one that's a little different - watercolor, more realistic in rendering, with a complete guidebook! However, I kept putting it off because a) fear is a real thing with creators and b) It takes time away from the work that brings in money regularly. 

By becoming a Patreon, you're giving me the time and support needed to finish and expand these joined projects and grow my herbal business, while becoming a part of the process. You're giving me the space needed to pour my heart and life into tiny pages, herbal recipes, and more education, so they can reach the hands of those who need this deck as much as I do. 

And for that, I can never thank you enough!

I already have printers for both the deck and the guidebook, the Unleashed Herbals site launched, and am working with several well-known deck creators throughout the process for support. I am also still in the Advanced Herbalism course with Herbal Academy, working toward building client hours to become a Registered Herbalist with American Herbalists Guild! 

Why Patreon?
A lot of people use something like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo to 'crowdfund' their projects, in a very 'Pledge to donate X amount towards Y project and get Z thing in return!'. It's a great way to fund projects and is a huge success!

I wanted to do something a little different. I didn't want to just ask for help to get a thing done. With Patreon, you can build a supportive community built around a positive energy exchange that goes both ways. You can support someone or something you really like and, in return, you become a part of their little community, receiving updates, emails, perks, and behind-the-scenes looks at how they work and create that thing you love. It's not a one time thing - it's an ongoing relationship between the creator and their supporters. And, to me, that's beautiful. One day, instead of saying 'Hey, I helped fund that!', Patreons can say 'I was a part of that whole process, and it was pretty damn cool'. 

I want you to be a part of my process. <3

Goals
0% complete
$250 gives me access to #allthethings, space to create, and even more time needed to get this done efficiently and to steadily grow my herbal offerings. My main job (Wild Sister!) is amazing and I love it, but in order to step away for a bit at a time to get this done, I need to financially be able to do so and hand over a few hours to a VA. $250 a month will support the things needed for a deck, and allow me to step away and create even more regularly and efficiently. 

When I reach $250 a month, I will release a second limited painting, not available for sale elsewhere, in a high-quality, preintable form!
