EARLY SPRING UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2020 


So we are in the middle of February and I can't believe how fast time flies by?!! I've been crazy busy this year with fulfilling high volume orders and trying to find some sort of work/life balance. One of my new year's resolutions is to focus more on self care. I'm still struggling with that but I'm determined to carve time out of each day for self care even if it's only for 15 minutes. Haha :) I've been absent from all social media outlets because of my hectic schedule but I'm doing very well and all is good! We've been experiencing snow storms and arctic cold fronts resulting in -20 below zero degree wind chills in Chicagoland. It's pretty brutal out there and we're all trying to stay indoors as much as possible. Since I drive to the post office and hand deliver all of your packages, my shipping schedule varies each week depending on the weather. I have to keep my family and fur babies warm and safe! The groundhog predicted an early Spring so we shall see.......





I have a lot of new products planned for 2020. Relocating my entire shop and moving into our new home this Winter pushed all of my projects back quite a bit. My focus for this year is to deliver more unique items for quick and easy hands on spell work. Think nitty gritty, down and dirty! I've received so many requests for defensive/protective work and with all of the crazy shit going on around the world, we need all the help on the magical and mundane level we can get! 2020 is also an election year so it's going to be intense. Buckle up Witches, it's going to be a wild ride.


New ritual soy jar candles are in the works and will be released in the Spring. My highly sought after ritual jar candles were recently featured by a local business in Chicago and completely sold out in under 5 minutes! I now currently have a long waiting list for my candles and will be working hard over the next few months to fulfill candle orders. 


Please understand that my candle making process takes a lot of planning, preparation, time and energy. I am a one woman run business so I do not mass produce my offerings with a team of business associates like other companies or rush the process to meet supply and demand for quick profit. The art of Witchcraft is very sacred and should never be rushed. Blackthorn & Rose has always chosen quality over quantity.  


***Due to the amount of high volume orders I'm receiving, I can no longer accept requests for custom work at this time.***


Please note that all products are freshly handcrafted and made to order. Due to the high demand of my handcrafted offerings, all orders are generally processed, packaged and shipped within 7-14 business days. Excluding weekends and holidays. You will receive a shipping notification that includes your USPS tracking number via Paypal once your package has shipped.  


Don't forget to share the LOVE! Please leave a positive review on all of the offerings you are obsessed with and love! To leave a review, simply click on the product and write what you loved about the product in the review section located towards the bottom of the page. Reviews are so vitally important to the livelihood of small home based businesses and I appreciate the time you take to share your experience! 


Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul for your support, I appreciate it more than words could ever express! May your New Year be filled with peace, love, joy, good health, abundance, prosperity and the brightest of blessings!


Love & Gratitude,
Melissa
