About Us


We're Melissa (she/her) and Aaron (they/them). We're the proud parents of five delightful furkids: Jackson Pawlick, The Great Catsby, Winifred Sanderson, Thor, and Loki. We live in West Chester, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati. Melissa is finishing up her Master's degree in Creative Writing while Aaron is an Executive Sous Chef at an awesome Creole restaurant.


I take my coffee mostly black. Aaron takes their creamer with a tidge of coffee. We're planning renovations on our first home. We got married on a Monday so that we wouldn't have to change our anniversary, which is on Halloween. Also, we both obsessively cross stitch comic book heroes and snarky phrases. We duet in the car to musicals. While Aaron creates killer dishes at the restaurant, I wrote my first novel during NaNoWriMo 2019.


Both of us have a firm belief that your home should be filled with things that reflect your life, your family, and the things you love. You're not boring, and your home shouldn't be either.

About The Shadow Lands

In 2018, we decided to go into business for ourselves.


Our goal is to provide you with products that celebrate all the aspects of your life. Whether you're looking to create a welcoming and celebratory atmosphere in your home, harness a creative vibe in your office or art space, or you want to show off the hobbies you love, we have you covered.


We also believe that ritual is such an integral part of everyone's life. Whether it's a birthday, an anniversary, or celebrating life in general, we create items that help you enhance the occassion. Enhancing your life doesn't need to cost you a month's rent. 

No occasion is too small to celebrate!


How We Give Back

In our home, we believe in giving back, especially to issues that are very close to our hearts. We routinely donate to organizations such as Ohio Alleycat Resource, Planned Parenthood, The Trevor Project, GLAAD, Transform Cincinnati, and many more. We are also proud members of Murderino Makers, a collective of creators who are true crime aficionados, but want to help others. Each month, all members of the Murderino Makers donate 15% of our sales to different charities and organizations. In 2019, 128 makers (including The Shadow Lands) donated $10,677 to more than twelve organizations.

Feel free to look around, check out our blog, and email us if you have any questions. You can also find us on Instagram at @theshadowlandswitchery and @theimaginarium13.
