How Patreon works

To get these rewards, you need to join my Trouble Club before the end of the month as Patreon charges everyone on the 1st. You can upgrade/downgrade your tier at any time, if you want to skip a month or get a certain Happy Mail package (I’ve shared my plans for the rest of the year here). Hope to see you there!


Can’t afford to join?

I just realised recently that you can follow along for free! You won’t get any of the rewards but I do make some of my posts public. Also, last month’s weather wallpapers will be shared with my newsletter subscribers at the end of the month, and the Back to School printables will be added to my shop soon. The new Japan zine will be available to buy in the second half of October in print and PDF editions.
