                                                           What is Patreon?
Ok, you are here.

*Waves*  Welcome!

Now, what is this place? This is the fantastic Patreon site. It’s like kickstarter, but for the long haul! I am going to tell you who I am and why I am on Patreon and then YOU can decide if you want to become a patron of mine. If you would like to support me, go click that spiffy big orange button that says “Become a Patron” and choose how much money you’d like to pledge to me each month as a supporter. In return for your support you can get rewards. Get stuff? Yup! Each pledge tier comes with some type of reward. Go, look at the stuff, pretty stuff (it’s over on the side there). You can change or cancel the amount at any time so come, try it out and join this wonderful community of creators and patrons!

*poke* What?

What is that goal thing on the other side of the page? Oh, that. Well, that is where my current goal is located. When I reach whatever amount I’ve set for a goal, I get to do whatever that goal is. I am just starting out so my short-term goals are mostly about helping me flesh out my materials or helping me gain momentum. Future goals might be a little more fun. Who knows? Join me and lets find out together ok? Now, onto who I am and why I am here:


                                                             Who am I?
So, who am I exactly?

I am Rebekah, the creator behind Sita’s Creations!

What? That’s just a name? You need more? Ok, what else can I say? Who am I? That’s always a hard question. Just like all of you I am many things at different times and places and to different people.

Summarize? Alrighty, I can do that.

Overall I would say I am a massively creative and eccentric creature. I write, I make jewelry, I craft, I design, I sing, and I play the clarinet among other things. I am a woman who loves anything Gothic, dancing, all things geek, and the arts. I love the arts. Like ALL the arts. Ok, ok, maybe not ALL of them…there are some I only like rather than love. Ok, ok, yes, there are some I only like doing, but love seeing or vice versa. Maybe I should just say I support ALL the arts? Yeah. Much better. I support ALL the arts! Perfect. What else? Oh, I am married to my best friend which I highly recommend and have far too many cats. I am also someone who can talk a mile a minute when hyper or excited and I am a movie fanatic.

Want more? Well, you’ll have to wait. I am TRYING not to write an essay here. Later. Come, be a supporter and we’ll probably get to more later. Probably. I think. I should maybe mention I am a procrastinating perfectionist. It’s a curse, or a blessing. Depends on how exciting you like your daily life to be. Now, what was next? Oh right, moving on.

                                                       Why am I on Patreon?

  • I'm here to ask for support! I’ve been making things since I was 7 years old, but never before have I had the courage to try and put myself out there. It is past time to take this leap and I am asking for your help to do so! So often we hesitate to pursue our passions because we let things hold us back from trying. We let that voice in our heads talk us out of it with arguments and reasons and doubts like:
    • Can I afford to spend time on this? Everyone says I won’t be able to support myself doing this.  How can I make a living when it takes hours to create something, but I can only sell it for a fraction of a living wage? 
    • I’m not yet an expert in my field. No one is going to take me seriously if I’m still learning.  
    • I was socialized to the idea that asking for help from others is a weakness or shows I’m a failure. If I ask for help then won't people just think I want a handout?
    • What if I try this and no one supports me? I’m afraid to prove the naysayers right and fail.  If it stays a hobby then I avoid that risk.


    I am done with listening to that voice. I want to spend my days doing what I love!  I want to create and learn and share and to do it I'm willing to ask for the help I need to turn my passion into my livelihood. 


  • I'm here to share my passion with others!
    • I want to show the results of my hard work to others outside my friends and family.
    • I want to inspire other creators to try and pursue their passions. 
    • I want to feed ideas into the creative pool. Please look at my work and take what I make and add your own twist to it. Let’s spark the imagination of each other with what we produce! 


  • I'm here to get feedback! 
    • I want to know what you think of my work.
    • Tell me what you like and tell me what you don’t. 
    • Do you have a suggestion for something I could try or change? I want to hear it!

I am taking my first step starting down a new path that I hope will bring many positive things to my daily life and I hope you will join me and help support me as I make this journey.  This is just the beginning!  Join me in looking forward to all the wonderful things that are to come!

Goals
$0 of $100 per month
Product Displays and Signage!!!!!!

Ok, I took my first step to putting myself out there and now I could really use your help with what comes next. As many of you have already realized (due to my glee over it), I have started going out into the world with my creations this last year.  I started with Megacon Tampa Bay 2016 and since I had so much fun and it was a great success I went on to get a spot at the Bay Area Renaissance Festival which also went extremely well!  However, now that I'm out there in world physically sell my pieces, I could definitely use a few additional things to help display my work more effectively. I currently have basically a starter pack in the way of signage or display paraphernalia.  I hope to have better options for future events so...Here's where you guys come in!  Every penny helps so please help me reach my very first goal for displays and signs here on Patreon!
