Happy Halloween! Or Samhain as it’s known in my world. Pronounced Sow-en, Samhain is Gaelic for “Summer’s End” and marks a full turn on The Wheel of the Year. If you’re looking for a simple ritual to celebrate, head on over to this post.
While I get excited for Halloween like most people do Christmas, it’s because Samhain is the Witch’s New Year celebrations. And you know what that means…
New Year, New Beginnings!
If you’re one of my lovely subscribers (*waves madly*), you’ll already be painfully aware of our house move shenanigans. When I drafted this post in early October, it hadn’t yet happened. But finally, we got the keys last week and Beloved and I will be
Actually, we’ll have a choice of two.
You’ll find Beloved toasting his chestnuts in the kitchen!
As if moving house wasn’t enough, there are even more new beginnings for The Witch at OneandSeventy, in the shape of a brand new business!
A Touch of Magic UK
A Touch of Magic is an exciting new partnership between Yours Truly and my very good friend Sam, a Reiki Master and qualified mindfulness practitioner whose holistic therapy practice Passaddhi, is based near Bridgnorth in Shropshire.
Sam also happens to be a hell of a maker, too, so I get to work alongside another creative.
I am SO pumped!
Together, Sam and I will be bringing together the worlds of wellbeing and witchery to offer a range of holistic therapies and complementary handcrafted products. We’ll also be bringing you a carefully curated selection of spiritual, wellbeing and all-round woo-woo stuff from our favourite suppliers and fellow artisans.
Through A Touch of Magic (or ATOM for short), The Witch at OneandSeventy will finally be bringing her particular brand of seasonal decorating out of the closet and into the homes and retail spaces of the unsuspecting public.
With Halloween top of the list.
Eventually, ATOM will have a real-live
To start with, we’ll be hanging out on Instagram where you’ll be able to contact Sam for a treatment, or buy one of my curious creations.
Early next year, you’ll be able to visit us in our very own online shop – www.atouchofmagicuk.com. If you’d like to find out when we launch, just pop your email into the box on the landing page and we’ll keep you posted.
Phew! As you can see, there’s a ton of stuff going on behind the scenes, hence why I’ve been so quiet on the blog. It’s going to be one heck of a ride and I can’t wait to jump on my broomstick and get stuck in.
Although there may be times when I need a little reminder!
A new home, a new business AND a new decade! 2020 is gearing up to be a fantastic year of new beginnings and I truly hope you’ll join me on the journey.
But for now my lovely reader, a very Blessed Samhain to you. I am so grateful to have you here and wish you all good things for the coming year.
A hui hou,
