Hi there!

If we haven’t already met, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Megan and I’m obsessed with all things arts and craft related. Some people collect objects, like rocks or cards, but I collect hobbies. I’ve spent most of my life finding and mastering new skills, be it painting or sewing or sculpting.

Most of my apartment is decorated DIY style. My paintings hang the walls, my pillows decorate the couch, and my blankets warm the bed. Crafting is a cheap, easy way to try new looks and experiment with new mediums. What’s the downfall? Scrolling through Pinterest or Google, you can spend hours wading between poor designs and incomprehensible instructions. I know this because I’ve been there. The beautiful crafts are either too expensive or the materials aren’t readily on hand. That’s where I come in.

I’m using Patreon as a subscription service to monthly DIY kits and demos. Here’s how it works:
Each month is themed, like “Felt Flowers” or “Wine Bottles”. Themes are released 3 months in advance, so you always know what you’re signed up for.

Every week in the month, I release new content for you.

Week 1: “Hobby How-to’s”—This is where I’ll explain and demonstrate new techniques and hobbies. For “Felt Flowers” month, you’ll learn how to create 3-dimensional flowers on an embroidery hoop using wool and felt. For “Wine Bottles”, we’ll go over how to use glass paint to create vibrant, lasting designs.

Week 2: Subscription Arrival—This is the week your DIY kit comes in the mail. In your box you’ll find all of the tools necessary to create a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind craft. I’ll post a video on Patreon describing your materials, how to use them, and what you’ll be making. For “T-Shirt” month, you’ll get a t-shirt, beads, string, and a sewing needle. The only thing you provide is a pair of scissors.

Weeks 3 & 4
: These are your bonus blog weeks. I’ll post a new blog both weeks explaining how to do a simple DIY at home, with materials you probably already have. They’ll be on theme, but that’s all I want to give away for now.


So, now that you know what my Patreon is all about, let’s go over your options.

Option 1: $5 a month—This is kind of a “dip-you-toe-in” tier. Each month you’ll have access to my monthly “Hobby How-to’s”. I’ll answer any of your questions and you’ll have the ability to share your work with other members of the Patreon page.

Option 2: $30 a month—This is the full package. You’ll get access to my monthly “Hobby How-to’s”, a DIY Subscription Kit, and 2 bonus blogs. Oh, and not just from this point forward. You’ll have access to my full library of DIY’s. Plus, the cost covers materials and shipping, so there are no hidden fees.

That’s it! Now get crafting!
