If you're new to following along in my journey I am an illustrator, artist, wife, and stay-at-home mom. My daughter's name is Odessa, and we have baby no. 2 on the way, expected September 16th. you'll most likely be seeing snippets of the kiddos in my work or in updates as motherhood permeates every aspect of my life. My husband, Sean, is a programmer and we're so blessed for him to be able to provide for our family. His job allows me to stay home with our daughter and pour some time into my creative business. Ko-fi has been a dream of mine for a while, simply for the possibility of connecting more with my audience and that is my primary goal here. Thus I hope to give even the lower tiers access to a lot of great content. I also have dreams and aspirations for my business that I can't achieve without your help! Currently, my creative endeavors are restricted to part-time hours, just due to the nature of motherhood. Something your support as a patron would help with is childcare. For now, I hope to just get a few hours a week where I can focus on my creative work. I'm realizing this time spent working is good for my mental and emotional health and allows me to be a better mom. I won't be trying to sneak in work whenever I can, I can focus on Odessa, engaging, and playing with her much more fully with some dedicated time to my craft. Materials: Most businesses take out loans to cover their startup costs and then hope to make a profit and pay back those costs. In my case, my husband and I don't have money to pour into my business regularly unless I make sales. Your support would go toward helping me to buy eco-friendly materials to make new work as well as continue to upgrade my packaging for my shop. I don't know about you but I'm a packaging nerd. If you want to offer your input on packaging choices and want info on where I'm acquiring eco-friendly materials then you've come to the right place! Shop: I have an online shop at This is something I am able to afford with the help of my amazing supporters here and on Patreon. These are just a few of the ways your money will be used to help me and my business. I am just starting out and new to this ko-fi thing. So if there is specific content you would like to see please let me know and I will try to make it happen!
