I’m Mona Schmitt and I have a crafting addiction! I have been making YouTube videos since 2011 and I love sharing ideas, projects and inspiration with you! I love all types of crafting, resin, recycling, holiday crafts (the list goes on and on) and I always love a challenge! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that lately I have been more than a little obsessed with Craigslist. So many projects…. so little time!
This brings us to Patreon.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a funding platform that allows people to become patrons of their favorite artists. Patrons pledge a dollar amount monthly to help support the artist to help them support themselves and to help them continue to create great shows that you love. You can also create a budget and put a cap on it, so you never go over that amount. You can also stop at anytime! It’s all voluntary and optional. I will continue to provide free videos on YouTube twice a week, no matter if you choose to support Craft Klatch or not. So why support? Another great question!
Whether you are new to Craft Klatch or have been with me for some time, you know we have built a great community. Obviously that takes time and money. If you have ever made a video, you know how long it takes. Between planning a craft, buying the materials, taping and making the craft, to editing and downloading, it takes on a life of its own. Then there is the website and keeping on top of social media. I do it all myself and I have a full time job as well. With support from Patreon, it would allow me to dedicate more time to Craft Klatch, which will only make it better! Yay!
So that’s what Patreon will do for me, but what will it do for you?
You mean aside from a lifetime of love and appreciation I will be telepathically sending you? Well, I’m glad you asked! Patreon allows me to share more directly with you and gives you exclusive access to rewards and giveaways! That’s right, REWARDS AND GIVEAWAYS! Whoohoo! There are different levels of support, but even at the lowest level ($1 per month), you will have access to my Patreon only newsfeed, where I will share announcements and give you sneak previews of upcoming projects. And it will give you exclusive entry into monthly giveaways! I will be giving away four projects per month. You will be entered into that drawing. Those giveaways are open for patrons only! At higher levels, there are more rewards and more entries into the giveaways, so be sure to check them all out!
At this time, I want to make sure I make something very clear. This is purely voluntary and optional. If you cannot or do not want to take part in this Patreon campaign, no problem. I mean it. Don’t feel bad. I know things can be tight, I’ve been there and just watching, commenting and giving my videos a thumbs up is hugely supportive! And I will continue to provide free videos on YouTube. That is not going to change or go away! This campaign is if you appreciate what I do and if you would like to give a little more. I’ve put a lot of thought into the rewards, to show my appreciation, so hopefully you will see that value in that as well.
Thanks for sticking around and checking out the rewards! You mean the world to me!
