support local artists

10

Went to a lil gift shop called I Like You in Minneapolis today. Everything there is from local Minnesotan artists. It was amazing, not pictured but my mother bought some BEAUTIFUL pearl earrings there. I love being able to support local artists here in Minneapolis, and everything was so reasonably priced! 10/10 if you’re ever in the area, go there cause you’re bound to find something you’ll love, plus you can bring your dog! (And theyre very openly lgbt+ supportive)

I think we all need to take a minute to appreciate this gorgeous necklace that I picked up a few weeks ago at an arts festival! I knew as I was buying it that I wanted to make a nail design to match it and voila! Here is the result!
You can find this necklace and other cute jewelry and accessories at Birch & Blossom Jewelry Co.

Hey folks! In case you didn’t already know, I recently launched MY OWN PATREON SITE, and it’s a pretty cool deal. Patreon allows supporters to pledge a chosen amount per month to artists like me, and in return, you’ll get awesome perks and access to exclusive content.

As a self-employed artist, I don’t have a stable income like many other hard-working people do. This means that sometimes, making ends meet can be rather difficult, and money management is a highly important skill which I’ve honed to perfection. Even so, having some manner of financial stability would be fantastic, especially since I’ve become much more involved in things like canine rescue, which requires a definite dedication of my time and energy. 

Every cent I make on my art goes toward bills, food, and care for the critters here at the mini-farm, as well as the purchase of art supplies, listing fees, etc. so that I can continue running my business. 

Patrons who donate get access to exclusive content, like access to my up-and-coming “Secret Side Blog”, downloadable detailed instructions for tanning, skull and bone cleaning, and even a “Beginner’s Guide to Picking up Roadkill”. For those who donate at higher tiers, I also have a “Tail of the Month” club, meaning that for each month you donate, I will send you a surprise tail key-chain of a different coloration or species.  

You can cancel or lessen your monthly donation amount at any time, meaning that there is no set commitment, and no need to worry about spending too much. If you want a perk set at the $100.00 donation tier, you can donate that much for just one month, get the perk you want, and then cancel so that you won’t be charged that amount again the following month.

Hi Friends, my brand is steadily expanding. I’m a small business owner hoping to share my art with the masses one step at a time…I now have lots of fun products, and it’s steadily growing, all in an effort to show more positive representation for women of color everywhere from all over the globe! I currently have lined notebooks, buttons, pocket mirrors, desktop re-usable 2015 calendars that start this August 2014, wristlets, and clutches, and totes available for ordering, just message me here for details.  Please share and help spread the word about my art. We deserve to take up space, be celebrated, and empowered!!
