News and Offers

  • My printable 2021 Calendar Bookmark for May & June is now available for download. It’s pay-what-you-can so free is fine but I appreciate any donations to help me keep creating.
  • My Patreon is ending so look out for lots of previously-exclusive content coming to my blog over the next few weeks, some new blog features and other ways to get freebies and exclusive stuff. I’ve also created a new page with info on how to support my work.
  • My print-on-demand page has also had an update to be more helpful. My characters and patterns are available on hundreds of fun products at Redbubble, Society6, TeePublic, Zazzle and more.
