support wITH A TIP
Hello! Thank you for being here. As some of you may know, Mellow Doodles hasn’t been active for much of the last year. After an intensely challenging time with my physical health, I’m currently getting Mellow Doodles back on its feet. My goal is to build it back up in a way that is sustainable, viable and achievable - a business that I’m able to run whilst continuing to focus on my recovery and health. I’ve been busy offline doing just that and I’m excited for a future that allows me to continue this work I love so much, without sacrificing my health. Any support contributed to the Tip Jar will really help to achieve this. After having time off, it can be incredibly hard not to get stuck in a vicious cycle of burning out as soon as you return and losing all the progress made. Whilst I’m building a new way of making Mellow Doodles work, your tips and generosity will really help to give me a little breathing room to get over the first (and biggest) hurdle. Over the last few months I’ve been focused on building my creative confidence back up and reclaiming my voice too. So I promise I’ll be back soon - creating illustrations, words and resources to help, support or comfort those who might need it. That's always been the goal, and I can't wait to get back to it. It is an honour to connect with so many kind souls through this work. Knowing it has helped people has been the number one driving force to return. I’m so grateful for your support, whether it’s sharing my work with others, messages of encouragement, online purchases, a tip, or being here right now reading this. Thank you for taking the time to read this little letter. I appreciate you. Melissa x
