We made it!
The 2016 holiday season was...crazy. So rewarding though, each time a package went out it felt like a little missive of magic was being sent out into the world. The studio was busy day and night, ribbons flying and the sounds of taping boxes, printing labels and stuffing filler.
We did two holiday markets. It was a first and it was an unbelievable experience. Seeing the kids interact with the potions and asking their very serious questions about magic. They were continually asking about buying single potions so that is something I'll look at for the coming year.
Now the notes are coming back - thank you to everyone who has sent one. Here are my favorites. They are sure to carry me straight through 2017.
“The potion kit arrived today and Abbey loves it! We just made the potion to draw gnomes into our flower bed!! The kit is as beautiful as I thought it would be. Thanks again for getting it to us!!” — MELISSA
“Just wanted to let you know how much my daughter LOVED this kit! Was her favorite present! Thanks so much!” — AMANDA
“I have to tell you, Lotus loves her potion kit! It has its own cupboard in the kitchen and she plays with it almost everyday! She loves that its glass...cause it means she is grown up! I received it just in time and Im so glad as it was the complete hit...blew all the store bought toys out of the water. Thank you!” — VICTORIA
“I can’t tell you what fun this is! My mom was so excited to see the boxes and they are amazing! The boys have been making potions since they got in the car. Thank you so very much for your beautiful product. It is truly magical.” — JOELLE
Droppers, vials & ribbons! They are piling up around us as we work into the night. It is nourishing work to be creating holiday joy - each package that goes out feels like a little blessing being sent on its way to a new home.
As soon as we can make new kits we are re-stocking the website. Check back if you are looking for something that is currently sold out.
We will be taking orders through the 19th for guaranteed Christmas delivery, after that we can only do our best!
I'm so excited! This summer we have been building out our barn to create a new PotionKit studio.
So many little drawers to fill with magical bits of this and that. It means that each kit can have some improvised goodies - a feather, crystals, acorns, or potion cards that match the interest of the magician receiving the box.
We are hoping to have the studio done mid-September in time for Halloween and Christmas orders. Can't wait!
