“Hello world!” In the midst of testing a new theme for my site (it was absolutely not the right layout for what I’m hoping to achieve here), I discovered the handy-dandy trusty theme I’ve used on this site for literally ~years~ is ‘Retired’. That means that once I switched away from it to preview a new theme, I lost access to the old one.
Such is life.
Bear with me while I get a new theme set up. The behind-the-scenes world of wordpress has changed so much over the years that I’m finding it a foreign land.
Wheel of Fortune “this side” from Vice Versa tarot. Love this little tidbit from the guidebook:
“Struggling to understand what is beyond mortal understanding brings despair.”
LOL! Seems almost fitting as I navigate this new era of blogging. 😉

Exciting times in my life! I have decided to separate out the various things I do and products I sell into more than one location. It has been a bit of a muddle having everything under Faery Garden. It may look a little chaotic around here for a bit.
What can you expect?
Faery Garden will have a focus on divination – readings and posts on tarot, oracle, runes, pendulum, whatever takes my fancy. I will also be offering (in my Etsy shop Faery Garden for now) readings; as well as an assortment of various handmade craft goods and some digital downloadable content. Once our global shipping / postal issues are a little less unpredictable I will resume offering tangible items for purchase. The shipping and import rules are super confusing, so for now I will only be selling tangible goods in the US. Things seem to be looking up here & there so I am hopeful it will not be much longer.
I am in the process of establishing another space for more witchy specific topics and will link that when it is up & running.
How long will this all take? Well, that’s a million dollar question, ha! I have multiple commitments outside of my business, so it will take as long as it takes. Being a one-woman shop on a shoe-string, I do my work myself. My tentative goal for having the online framework completed is the beginning of July (2021). I have to take one set of inter-connected sites/social media accounts, and sort them into various sites and decide what social media sectors can be all-inclusive, and if I need to break out any into different accounts; and then make sure everything hooks in and links all around properly. You would not believe the amount of lists and flow-chart bubbles I currently have. lol
If you have read all this, thank you! I hope you stick around and follow whichever pages meet your needs.
