Tho Much Is Taken, Much Abides.
"Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." - Ulysses - Alfred Lord Tennyson
Covid - and its' impact on all of us over the past two years - is at times more of an explanation than an excuse for where I find myself at this moment in time, approaching 2022 and hoping to keep my eyes on the prize.
The pandemic cost my production partner his business producing the night lights he made for me and which, for many of my initial customers, were their first purchase from me. I wish him well and hope for him there'll br better days ahead. I retain a limited number of night lights and have been selling them primarily at gift/craft shows.
On a brighter note, I've added handmade glass votive candle holders to my product offering as you can see in the accompanying picture. A simple electric tea light candle transforms them into a particularly charming night light. They are pricier than I'd like them to be, but they are wonderful and can be found no where else.
One day at a time.
