asking for trouble

Spooky Autumn Patreon Projects

August was Spooky Autumn Month on my Patreon so let’s have a look back at what I was working on.

Hugging Ghosts

Inspired by a customer doodle request, I had a happy hugging ghost that I wanted to work on. My patrons suggested some more fun things he might like and I had a great time drawing them.

I made 4 phone wallpapers this month from the patron requests. I’ll be sharing the black cat wallpaper with my mailing list on Friday – sign up to get it.

Happy Mail

My Mail Box patrons received a Glitter Ghost brooch and hand-drawn Ghost bag to store it in. All Happy Mail patrons got exclusive Ghost and Dandelion Clock mini prints, a stamp from Iona and stationery samples, all packed in a handmade spooky envelope. The brooches are in my shop and the mini prints are available in the Trouble Club Shop (patrons of all tiers get access).


There were three exclusive printables this month including the spooky-wooky fold-up envelopes.

I also made some colourful Halloween stickers/seals to use with them and the hugging ghosts in 2 sizes for stickers or notelets/bookmarks.

Exclusive Posts

Patrons also get access to exclusive weekly catch-ups and product/design previews and these special posts.

Sorry you missed out on all this?

You can join the Trouble Club any time to get access to the wallpapers & printables archive and the Trouble Club Shop, plus you can read all the old posts and see what’s happening in Cosy Home month. Next month’s rewards will be shared this week and have a Handmade Christmas theme.
