christmas giveaway

Christmas giveaway!

All patrons will be eligible to enter my Christmas giveaway, which will include this large Rilakkuma embroidered badge. It was a free gift with large purchases at Kiddyland and I managed to spend enough to get two during my trip! There will also be more cute festive goodies. The giveaway will start this week so I can send out the prize in time for Christmas.

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. Hope to see you there!

Can’t afford to join?

You can still follow along for free. You won’t get any of the rewards but I do make some of my posts public. Also, the $1 tier wallpapers will be shared with my newsletter subscribers the following month.
