Well, I launched this new website and blog with really great intentions. "I'll update the blog twice a week and the website once a month, after my online sales night, it will be great!"
And then life happened. I won't go into details, but basically a family member became very ill, requiring a lot of care and attention, and then sadly passed away. It was hard. And even harder is coming back to something you feel is only partially done and trying to pick up where you left off, which is what I am doing now.
Still, let's not dwell on missed opportunities and sadness, but instead move on, and talk about positive things.
I am planning a huge website update. There will be lots of developments and new ranges and expansions to existing items. I'm ironing out a few issues with the site and the email. I'm working out ways to list some of the larger ranges I make, without them completely overwhelming the site. So there is much more to come!
To keep you going in the meantime, here are some cuffs and a collar I made for a recent sales night, to whet your appetites for the loveliness to come.

Everyone likes new items, right? I like seeing new content on web pages, I'm signed up to dozens of mailing lists, and I go round my bookmarks regularly, looking at all the new, pretty things available. I like to make new things but it can be hard to come up with ideas. So in order to motivate and challenge myself to bring you an interesting range of spooky delights, I now run monthly boutique nights via social media. I'm currently using Facebook to do this, and am exploring the possibility of rolling it out to Instagram too.
I challenge myself to a new theme every month. My next boutique night is on 1st June 2017, and the theme is Spider's Web. There are giveaways, chat, a resident DJ and all kinds of fun to be had.

With the boutique nights, you get special offers, one off items, as well as the very first look at new items for the website. To keep up, you can follow our 'Events' tab on Facebook, sign up to our mailing list to keep up with all of our events, offers, and newsletters.

...said the spider to the fly. But don't worry, I don't intend on trapping you!
Welcome to the new Forever in Black site. It had been clear for a while that the old site was not fit for purpose, and I've been quietly working away at getting a new one going, in between sewing spooky delights. This is the result.
I'm looking forward to uploading lots of lovely new things for you to covet! In the meantime, here's a nice photo of some things I made for a recent online boutique night.
