Additional Rewards

All new patrons get instant access to my exclusive content on Patreon. Coming up, I have a process post on how I designed my Spring Flowers patterns (with screenshots) and I’m working on a free 2018 Favourites zine. I’ll also be sharing photos of each room in my house as I declutter – hopefully the kitchen will be completed soon.

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. The printables and pins will be added to my shop.
