Much adieu about nothing...

Many of you have already heard the news. We're closing the store. We're done. Stick a fork in it done. Yup, that's right. Eye of Nuit will be closing it's doors sometime in March, if not sooner. I may, or may not, blog more of the details of this at a later date.The online store will remain (Pagan Stuff Cheap), and there will be an online store set up at the Eye of Nuit site where I will sell various and sundry items that don't go on Pagan Stuff Cheap.

The nice thing about this monumental decision is that I am free to allow my "Give A Shit" to run amok. And believe me, the GAS is having a blast!

Now, onto the redesigned blog! I needed something fresh, something new. I've been selling some of my witchy wares under the Enchanted Moon Alchemy™ name, and wanted to incorporate that into this fresh new blog. But for some reason, since it's a blog, the word "alchemy" just wasn't fitting. So I sat and thought a while. Then the word "chronicles" popped into my head and I said BINGO!!

But then, being the Gemini that I am, I asked myself WHY the word "Chronicles" was so hauntingly familiar. Took me a while. Then it hit me.  The Grimoire Chronicles series by Sally Dubats (my new FAV author!) You can find the first book in the series on Amazon. Please do check it out!

In mundane news, I finally got the ScentWerx site up and running.  It's done fairly well for being so new. We've got tons of Dave's beautiful candles listed, I added some Smelly Jellies, and recently added Shower Gels, and a luxurious Body Mist. In the coming weeks I'll have the silky smooth body lotions, and some OHMYGODDESS sugar scrubs.

I've committed myself (if you stopped here and didn't read any further, please do not pass Go, do not collect $200, just head directly to the asylum) to writing a book this year. After the store officially closes. There's a story that is absolutely begging to be told. And I've promised myself that names probably won't be changed to protect the not-so-innocent. ::evil grin::

One other project I'm taking on this year, and that is learning how to make my own herbal products. Tinctures, salves, brews, and the like. So if you thought that closing the physical store meant I'd just be a lazy housewife, think again LOL!

That's all for now.
