It has been a long time. Much too long a time. Over a year long time in fact, since I last uploaded a post to this blog. As for social media, my last post was in September but posts were few and far between for months prior to that. Similarly, my Etsy has been poorly updated and has been closed since December due to a post Christmas a New Year break that never ended.
This is basically a long overdue update to let you guys know why things have been so quiet and about the future for Magickbox.
Where in the world have you been?
I hear you asking it and honestly, I’ve been up and down and in between. A lot has happened in my life this past year, mostly involving my mental health kicking my ass but I also got a new job. These things obviously took my attention away and Magickbox suffered as a result. I was finding it difficult to get motivated enough to complete the next steps I wanted to take but I am now getting there! Behind the scenes I have been searching for products, getting stock in, taking photographs, working out logistics and a little bit of re-branding. It’s been a slow process but thankfully I am getting there.
What does this mean?
It means that Magickbox will be offering more products but most importantly, it means that these products will soon be available online!
This website was originally created with the intention of having a more comprehensive online store for Magickbox. Unlike my Etsy which can only contain my handmade items, this online store can include ALL my products. You won’t have to wait for a convention to get that handbag you fancied last time or to add another pair of cat socks to your collection! This store will also allow me to offer a greater variation of products since I won’t have to limit myself to what I can bring to venues. This means new jewellery, accessories, handbags, purses, clothing and more. I will also be keeping my blog on here and although I do not expect to post as regularly as I once did, I endeavor to keep it updated.
I’m incredibly excited to have the one home for all my products and my blog!
When is the launch?
That is the question. I originally planned to start listing products from the end of March and promote my new site soon after. However… Covid-19 happened. As it has caused problems everywhere else, it has messed with my little business also. I’ve had delays with stock arriving but mostly I just don’t think it’s the right time to be launching things. Everyone has much more important things to be dealing with than listening to me shouting about my new shop launch. If I were to receive orders, I would of course need to post them out and I don’t want to burden postal staff with unnecessary visits or risk my own and my families health for them either.
I don’t think I will need to wait until everything is 100% back to normal but right now just isn’t the appropriate time. Perhaps in a few weeks time, or into May things will feel better enough.
Please keep an eye out for my updates and feel free to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter to do so. I have been a busy wee bee the past few months and I can’t wait to show you the results!
