I will be closing my Spirit Gem Designs Etsy shop on June 20th! I don't like the direction things are going with it, so I'm opting to start a new business/shop. Starting fresh would be the cheapest option for me, unfortunately, although I have so many wonderful followers currently, which I so greatly appreciate! :-)
In the coming days, I'm switching to a 100% healing store, with the focus on products for healing practitioners, and products to assist in healing for regular individuals. The problem with the current store is I've built it to be a tree only business. That wasn't my intention, as much as I love my trees! The new store will have gem trees, but also other items like friendship bracelets (with or without gemstones), more mala and gemstone bracelets, sari wraps with or without charms, some special knit items, and whatever else I come up with! Its going to be a really fun mix. I haven't come up with a name for it yet, but when I do, I'll be sure and post it! I have to decide what I'm doing with this website, if it'll be renamed or if I'll start that from scratch as well. I really have my work cut out for me, but the results will be a lot more on par with the direction my life is going.
I should also mention this new store has a HUGE focus on color healing, one of my favorite things to work with. I want it bold, loud, fun, exciting, relaxing and inspiring. Whatever you're craving, I'll have it, in other words.
I'm also looking into the option of adding essential oils and hydrosols to my products, for additional healing. The experiment using hydrosols with my cats has gone well thus far, and I hope to add the option of including essential hydrosols to the special pet collars that I make. This practice will also work for my friendship bracelets for people. They're going to be so much more powerful than just a pretty design! :-)
I'm also going to be starting my own healing practice shortly. I want to work with people as well as animals. I still haven't decided whether I'll have a practice with a current office, or attempt to start my own either out of home, or on the road.
I am also continuing to grow Oddball Cat Toys slowly but surely! Both shops have kept me so busy, I haven't had any time to do writing for awhile. I apologize for that! I think I need to set a reminder on my phone to do at least a weekly post. I cannot tell you how these weeks have flown by for me, since my last post.
All right, I'm going to end it here with a sneak peak of my upcoming healing friendship bracelets. This one features 7 chakra colors, as well as the gemstones pertaining to each chakra (Red Jasper, Carnelian, Citrine, Green Aventurine, Iolite, Amethyst).
