Spring is almost upon us and we’ll soon be winding forward our clocks and enjoying lots more luverly daylight.
Yay for Vitamin D!
If you’re reading this across the pond, you may already be way ahead of us – I hope you’re enjoying the extra daylight hours.
Tuesday’s Equinox heralds the arrival of spring and in the spirit of new beginnings, I’ve decided to launch a new weekly feature, called Samhain Sunday.
As you know, Halloween or Samhain (commonly pronounced Sow-en) is my “thing”. Whilst I like to celebrate all the seasons, Halloween has become something of a speciality. And I’ve discovered I’m not alone. There’s a hell of a lot of love out there for all things Halloween.
Since throwing open the doors of OneandSeventy to the local Trick or Treaters a few years ago, Halloween is no longer just a day in the year; it’s a 24/7, 365 obsession!
This surprises you, I know.
Samhain is a time when I go into hyperdrive and the blog explodes in a riot of witchy décor and spooktacular makes. It’s both bonkers and brilliant, but even with two posts a week, there just aren’t enough days in October to bring you all my projects.
So, I’ve decided to add a second weekly post, dedicated to the creepy crafts and magical macabre that so many of you seem to love. If you’re a fellow obsessive or (like no-one around here AT ALL) you’re already planning this year’s haunt and looking for year-round inspiration, then Samhain Sunday will be right up your Diagon Alley!
It’ll be published on a Sunday (hence the name “Samhain Sunday”) and in it, I’ll be sharing my Halloween-themed projects long before Witching Hour. I’ll also be dropping in ideas and inspiration to keep you itching to witch all year long.
Samhain Sunday will start after Easter and I really hope you’ll enjoy it. I realise it might not be for everyone and I may even lose subscribers as a result but as Beloved says… this is who I am! It’s important to me that my little corner of the Interweb remains authentically and unapologetically me.
I’m pretty excited about this new direction and I hope you’ll join me for the journey and enjoy the ride on my broomstick.
What do you think? As always, leave a comment below to let me know, or why not visit my brand new Instagram feed for a chat? In the meantime, Happy Ostara! I hope all your new beginnings are exciting ones.
A hui hou,
