Hello, we are Kris and Sabrina

     We have woken up today in this time of economic woe, to find out a credit card company has drained our bank account of all funds by possible fraud or clerical error. While we are hoping to get this sorted out it will still leave us penniless for the time being. Anyone who has ever had to deal with banks and missing funds will know how long it can take to actually get your money back into your account.

  **update- it does to appear to be a clerical error related to our online bill pay. Hopefully we will find out more today.

What We Need & What You Get

     In order to make our bills and rent for the month, we are hoping to raise $1000 dollars in a short period of time. We can bounce back from this unfortunate turn of events but could really use a kind hand in helping us to do that.
     Kris is a talented up-and-coming painter/illustrator working on both fine art and cartoons and Sabrina is a wonderful craftsperson who regularly sells her handmade wares on Etsy.
     We are more than happy to offer great gifts to contributors ranging from handmade cards, handmade coffee cozee's, all the way up to commissioned paintings.
   **update- we are very flexible with perks, you ave something in mind? We will make it happen!
     Thanks for all the love, support and understanding from everyone it has been very uplifting.
     Please feel free to browse some of our artistic work at
Kris also is an active part of the deviantART community and the bulk of his artistic work can be seen there at

The Impact

     We are a young couple who just celebrated our one year anniversary and have the joy of welcoming our first child into the world in a few weeks time. Your contribution will go solely to help us survive while the bank tries to sort out this mess for us. We are hoping that through small contributions we can reach enough people with the means to help us from falling too far behind on the bills we struggle to pay everyday. We live a humble lifestyle with no frills just hard work and love and every penny will be put to good use.
