⭐️What is a Patron? Here are the DETAILS:

Patron supporters chip-in a bit each month to help me offset my expenses so I can continue creating. Supporting this way (at $5 +) entitles you to many posts, perks, and goodies that unlock once you begin.

This kind of help makes a big difference. It is with great appreciation that I create for my patrons as my “inner circle”.
