Patreon Rewards Roundup

My Patreon is still chugging along, though things have obviously been shaken up a bit by everything going on. The money you pay though Patreon helps support my work, and in return you get cute exclusive stuff. Here’s some of the things you’ve missed this year, and could still get by signing up.

kawaii wallpapers


All patrons (starting at $1 a month) get a new mobile and/or desktop wallpaper every month, plus access to a folder of more wallpapers. Some of these are also shared with my mailing list, but patrons get them a month earlier.

Patrons on the Happy Mail tier $5 per month) also get extra rewards every month. These often include printables like stickers for journaling, planner sheets or things for fun mail like this fold up mini cards. Access to a folder of previous printables is also included + a massive 75% discount on all my paid printables.



Whenever I make a new zine or colouring book, my patrons get it before everyone else. Usually Happy Mail patrons get a free copy while there’s a discount code for everyone else. The 75% discount code also applies to all my paid zines.

Happy Mail

Patrons on the Happy Mail tier get a postcard from me twice a year + extra freebies depending on how long they’ve been a patron. This was the July postcard and also included a large SCK mascots sticker and 4 random Bunny Emotions stickers.

Previews, Polls & More

There’s also lots of other benefits. Recently, patrons helped me choose which stamp designs to make and got to see previews of the packaging and finished stamps, and some upcoming cross stitch patterns. We also had a little meetup on my Animal Crossing island!

All patrons get a discount code for my shops and first access to sales and pre-orders. And every Sunday I share a personal catch up post with what I’ve been doing and working on.

Join My Patreon

It would be great if you would come and join us! During September, I’ll be experimenting with my new Silhouette Cameo cutting machine for new stickers, printables and products. I’ll be making a start on my 2021 calendar & diary designs, working on finishing my lockdown zine and there will be more wallpapers and printables. You’ll also be able to build up some months to get more freebies with the next postcard, sent in January.

Head over to Patreon to find out more and sign up.
