Winter is coming, and with it, the hibernation of my sweet little shop.
I already told you about the unfortunate change of visa that I’m going to experience next month and the consequences that come with it – aka an extended period of forced vacations for me and my husband. So far, no other changes to declare, all that I said last week is still valid.
So, first things first, I will close the shop on November 17, and the last orders will be sent the following Monday.
Closing the shop at this time means that there won’t be any end-of-the-year sales. So, just as I was saying in my last post, if you’re planning to get some Yule or Christmas presents from my shop, the sooner the better. The same goes for custom orders: you still have a few weeks to work with me, then I won’t be able to create anything more for you until the reopening (which annoys me deeply, despite it not being my call).
Now for those of you who asked me about the publishing of my Wildera Lenormand, don’t worry, I still have it in my mind. My initial schedule obviously doesn’t stand anymore, but I still intend to have it printed and released as soon as I can. I had planned to get pre-orders on the shop by mid November; instead we are going to have a Spring Launch – sounds exciting to me!
I’ll keep posting news about my very first deck here and on my social media platforms, but I’m also aware that some of you don’t use them and would like something else instead. As a solution, I will get back on creating and writing regular Newsletters in the future. This way, you’re going to be able to know where and how to order Wildera Lenormand when the time comes.
So if you’re inclined to it, please go and subscribe here, and I will take care of the rest 🙂
Having the shop in hibernation during the Cold Months doesn’t necessary mean that I will be dormant too (even if my Hermit Bear side finds it really tempting some days).
There’s a few weeks in December / January where I’m going to go back to France and enjoy the holidays with family while waiting for the new visa to be approved. Then, back to our home in Washington State, I’m going to use the rest of my free time to work on different Personal Projects that I kept pushing aside during last Summer.
I’ve got a long list for this, plenty of choice to keep me busy and share different facets of my spiritual and creative life with you. For instance, I still need to organize the inside of Mildred Payne’s Secret Treasure Box to be able to find the Magic Trinkets that I keep in there more easily.
I also want to work on the wood storage chests that I use in the Atelier. The idea came to me right in the beginning of my installation here, that they needed to be decorated to reflect the creations that I keep in. I have this picture in my head of what it’s going to look like; now I just have to make it happen. Besides of all this, I need to finish some wall decor for my Atelier too, and a couple of my Witchy Books and Grimoires are waiting for some updates and new pages.
I’m starting to find the positive side of these forced vacations. So many things to create, and plenty of time to focus on it!
