Hey everyone! Things got a little crazy around here for awhile. After a great Thanksgiving, it was decided by a nameless person that getting ready for Christmas took priority over Halloween. I know, I know, but what can you do? But let me clarify a little here. When I say get ready for Christmas, I don’t mean just putting up the lights and the Christmas tree. No, it consisted of also building a new laundry room and a storage room with wall to wall shelves.
But I can’t complain too much. The storage room is big enough to handle both the Christmas decorations and all of my Halloween decorations with room to spare, and so it gives me this year to build enough stuff to fill the rest of the room.
This is an exciting time for me. As we enter into the next phase of our business plan. Over the last few months my son and I built a beautiful screen printing press from scratch, just to see if we could.
It was a great experience and I even learned a few new expletives along the way. We feel that the possibilities are fantastic having this press at our disposal as it will allow us to print decorative Halloween signs, prop accents, T-shirts and Hoodies, etc. This will open up many new avenues to our business and will really help in making ElsBeth Lair a household name.
So today, I am introducing the beginning stages of our apparel line with 3 original designs for T-shirts from ElsBeth Lair. We have many exciting designs we have been working on and the plan is to introduce a new T-shirt or Hoody design in our store on a regular basis. At least 2 or 3 a month.
Property of Lancaster Prison was made in reference to the famous Pendle Witch Trials of 1612. Outside of the U.S. it is more famous than Salem. I just kind of thought that Salem gets used to death. Also if you read the stories in our story section about ElsBeth, you will find the connection between ElsBeth and these Witch Trials. One of the big differences between the Salem and the Pendle Hill trials is that most of the Pendle Hill Witches were actually self proclaimed witches.
Please note that I placed ElsBeth Lair and the symbol on the backs of these two designs.
This is my rendition of the Triple Goddess Symbol. I just couldn’t help including ElsBeth’s Symbol in the center moon. As I have visited many Goth sites, I have found the Triple Goddess Symbol to be a beautiful design and used in making some very nice jewelry, etc.
I hope you enjoy these designs. I sure have had fun designing them and making them available for you. Check them out right here in our store. So now you can don your ElsBeth Lair T-shirt and get to work, getting ready for Halloween!
