Trouble Club Rewards Preview – Hello 2020

Here’s what’s coming up throughout January if you join my Trouble Club on Patreon. Things will be changing a bit next year so this is the last chance to get this kind of Happy Mail delivery, which will be extra big to close off 2019.

This month’s theme is Hello 2020 (& Goodbye 2019). I’ll be closing off this year of Patreon and making plans for 2020 with special bundles for the Happy Mail packages plus new year themed wallpapers/printables.

How Patreon works

To get the Happy Mail rewards and discount codes, you need to join my Trouble Club before the end of December as Patreon charges everyone on the 1st. Wallpapers, printables and posts are available whenever you join. You can find out more in my new info page. The rewards are shared throughout January – this is the general plan but can change or be delayed:

  • Week 1 – payment processing, receive discount codes/access links
  • Week 2 – process posts, my plans for the year
  • Week 3 – wallpaper, printables
  • Week 4 – Happy Mail shipping
  • + additional posts/rewards throughout the month.

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. You can also take part in my Surprise Mail Swap – I will often include leftovers from previous Happy Mail rewards in my reply.
