Alright folks, after much delay, I am ready to announce my new project! Well, in fact it is a business!
I am really excited about this, because it brings many wayward parts of my life together into one endeavor. Just for a taste, here are a few things I hope will come to bear fruit from this project.
- Obviously, it will be a further home for my writing, and bring together many of these things in one central location.
- It will hopefully help provide funding for future writing and research projects.
- At the current moment, the forge and iron works is operational. This means that I will be able to provide material support for the pagan community, or really anyone that wants it. Stuff like this!
- This project will draw heavily on my archaeological background, so it should come as no surprise that I will likely be trying my hand at replicating artifacts. Stone, wood, leather, iron and steel. Also, anything else I feel like. Stuff like this!
- There are other parts of this project that are still under construction, and in the future I hope to expand into bowmaking, as well as general wood and leather work.
- One of my main communities of focus would be the pagan community, and so I would be offering creations for mundane as well as spiritual reasons.
That is the short list of course, but I am hoping this endeavor will turn into more than this. For starters, I want this to be a “community support” project. This project is not all about me, so it would be a springboard for collaboration and support as well. Obviously, I would love to be able to make a living off my own projects, but this isn’t just about me. As such, provided everything goes well, I will be using some of the profits from shop to help support the community. Just as examples of few of these things might be;
*Help support artists and creators do their own work.
*Donate to causes and/or projects that support my values
Really, this project brings together my educational background, my writing, my crafting, and my spiritual life into one little endeavor. There is a lot of promise here, and I really am looking forward to what the future might hold. And I hope you might join me on the way.
For now, this blog will serve as the “homebase” for this project, along with the Facebook page. I will try not to crowd out my regular projects with a bunch of marketing, so I encourage you folks to follow the Facebook page, as well as the Etsy shop. That is where most of this endeavor will be taking place.
