D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: Getting HIGHHHHHHH… 🤯 (February 2023)

Getting HIGH on my own supply again…

—-I guess I got high on the idea that I accomplished so fucking much yesterday! 🥰🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 We took down the Christmas trees and decorations, upcycled our daughter’s resale shop shirt, paid the bills, AND AND AND found out that we had 2 years of royalties hold up for us at CD Baby! 😳😬🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾 —I mean, I felt energized! 👏🏾 —So, I just feel like I can get an equal amount of amazing shit done today!

Dang! We’ve got a working Patreon!

—I am ALSO super excited that, seemingly out of the blue, we’re FINALLY on the verge of launching a thriving, working Patreon! 💥🤷🏽‍♀️👏🏾🥳 —You know, it hit me a couple of days ago to do some tweaks on Patreon—but this was a follow up to some things that Bruce and I talked about a while back. So, it really seemed fortuitous that when I logged on to spiffy up the profile, Patreon has made the tweak of allowing videos to be uploaded on the platform—which actually is an answer to my prayer for using it! 😬🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾🥳 —So, I was breathing a nice sigh of relief for it, but then, as Bruce was tripping down memory lane with our music, he played a Christmas song that I KNOW the new BPJ folks have not heard. It occurred to me that THIS would be the perfect content to put behind the pay wall for our Patreon profile. 🤷🏽‍♀️😬🙌🏾🥳 So, I held on to that idea long enough to talk to Bruce about it, and yesterday, he sent me the file, I created a cover, and NOW I am just trying to make sure that the logistics work before I announce it formally and before I put it, whole hog, in the BPJ email (that I will send out tomorrow, probably). 😊 BUT the point is that I have a “gift” that I HADN'T expected. 😳🤷🏽‍♀️😬🙌🏾 —I had been so hard on myself for NOT putting up any Black Friday offers and for NOT making BPJ ornaments this year AND for STILL not being motivated to send out any holiday cards—personal or business-wise—that to feel like we MIGHT have FINALLY cracked the nut on this Patreon thing feels AMAZING! 🥰🤷🏽‍♀️🙌🏾🥳 So, THAT'S RIGHT at the TOP of the list today! 😊💥📝💡
