Happy New Year, everyone! It’s now 2020 – a new year and a new decade. So new ideas? Possibly. Here at Magical Musings Books, we’ve talked about goals and dreams, and some of them we’ve started working on, but haven’t announced it here yet. Others are still in the talking phase, while some are still in the beginning production stages. Here’s a few of the things that are in the works for this spring…
The first thing we decided to add to our book options are what we call travel (or mini) journals. They are approximately 6″ H x 4.75″ W. They are blank journals with anywhere between 150-200 pages and are much more portable than the large or small journals that we started with. We’ve already sold a few, which is awesome! But again, we’ve made a goal for how many (15 mini, 10 small, and 5 large) we want to create in a specific amount of time (before I start Spring Semester/go back to work from my medical leave – 3 weeks for school/2-4 weeks for work). It’s a do-able goal in our eyes, but of course my medical leave threw a bit of a monkey wrench into the mix with major surgery on Dec. 23rd and restrictions for certain things like pushing/pulling/lifting put on me for awhile. These have really dampened our enthusiasm, but we are committed.
A few other things we are planning on creating are spirit bottles, wood burned spoons for the kitchen, and witch balls. These are more of the “magical” part of our business (following our spiritual path). If you have questions about any of those things, please don’t hesitate to contact us to ask about them. Hopefully examples will be put up in our gallery soon and a spot added in the shop for them to be purchased. Eventually, we knew our name would change from Magical Musings Books to include “& Baubles.”
One exciting announcement is that we have been chosen to be a vendor at Paganicon from March 20-22 in Plymouth, MN. We’ve been attending it for the past 4 or so years, and this time we also wanted to be a vendor. We are sharing a booth with a couple of friends who also make journals and other things, so this is going to be an exciting spring for us!
