Temporary Blog Hiatus

Cat-Just-5-More-MinutesI’m sure some of you all have noticed that I have been blogging less and less frequently. The reason is I’ve started working again. Unfortunately it isn’t a permanent teaching position just yet. Right now I’m substitute teaching until I find one. The pay sucks, and honestly I’m probably making less than I was on unemployment when you factor in the cost of gas and loss of productivity towards Treegold and Beegold. But, it’s experience that is both beneficial to me for when I get a permanent position and great for my resume.

Because of this though I’ve fallen incredibly behind on blogging. I’m keeping a float on orders and making the occasion new thing but that’s it.

I’ve decided to take a month off of the blog. In that time I plan to skip ahead and be prepared for the Yule season. I won’t be posting anymore fall or Samhain crafts. But behind the scenes I’ll be working ahead on new items and new blog material. My hope is when the month is up I’ll be a month ahead on my posts and I can use the moment to up ahead.

Also I’m thinking about adding more posts relevant to teaching. Not just talking about teaching but possibly doing Lesson Packs for parents to work with their children that would work well in a Pagan environment. I’d start with Pre-K young children but over time I’d work on increasing the age.

I’ll still be posting (mostly through shares of other awesome stuff) to the Facebook Fan Page, Twitter, Pinterest, and most recently Tumblr. I also began and behind the scenes blog redesign I have yet to finish. Hopefully I can cover that too.

Already I feel a weight off my shoulders knowing that I won’t be playing catch up for a bit and maybe just maybe I can actually get organized and ahead of the game.

Halloween Around the Corner: Optimus Prime Costume Review

OptimusPrimeCostume1Normally I like to make the kids Halloween Costumes myself. With starting the new job though I’m finding myself in a bit of a time bind.

Thanks to Wholesale Halloween Costumes I was able to get Lil ‘R a costume I knew he really wanted. A Optimus Prime Costume from the latest Transformers Movie.

For the price of the costume I would say this costume is a good deal. It comes with a body suit, the helm, chest piece and blaster arm. There is a lot of detail in both the paint and the printing on the body suit. Even for it being slightly too big on Lil ‘R it still works out. He’s a 3T/4T and the smallest size was an XS.

I was at first a bit disappointed by the thinness of the plastic for the helm, chest piece and blaster but after thinking of Lil ‘R running around it in for awhile it isn’t something you really want that is heavy.

What is most important is that he really loves it as you can see by the photo. He had a great time posing for the camera and I’m sure he’ll have a great time wearing this on Halloween.
