In addition to my customer service job here at WitchSchool, I am also working on a new Online Store. I love to make craft items, working with crystals, beads, and other pretty things. I find it helps me to relax and I also use the time to think about things in general. In the past, I liked to give these as gifts and people always seem to enjoy them. And because my job here on the WS site is mostly volunteer, I needed to find something to do that would help to increase my income. There aren't a lot of jobs to be had in this area, it is pretty depressed. So I decided that maybe I could make items to sell online.
I have been working on the website for several weeks now, in between the holidays and my customer service job, taking care of my Mom's needs, helping Ed with some of his projects, etc. You all know how this goes. We wear many hats, do many jobs, and also try to do our part to help others when and where we can. It is a large part of my philosophy in life, and I know many people here feel the same way. I have found caring, support, and kindness to be a major part of the WitchSchool family here. It is one of the reasons I continue to be involved.
So I invite you to check out my new website at My Mystic Gems http://www.mymysticgems.com
I have many hand-made items including wands and jewelry, and I am also selling some vintage items that I have purchased over the years. The site is still a work in progress, so I hope to continue to add items each week. If you have any suggestions or if there is a certain item you think might be a good addition to the site, please let me know. I appreciate any of you taking the time to look. Thanks for your interest.
I want to thank those of you that sent out holiday greetings and hope everyone had a great Yule/Christmas season. I am looking forward to 2010 and know it will bring great things. My one New Year's resolution I have already done - I have finally quit smoking. This was a huge accomplishment for me. Anyone interested in how I did it can check out my page for the info and link. http://www.witchschool.com/profile/MaryAnn
Still working on new items for the Book of Shadows Club. I hope to get more BOS pages up next week. Thanks everyone for your continued support of WitchSchool. We are here because of all of you.
