TADAAA! I’m sure you’ve noticed the new name by now. Some of you probably know that I originally started marketing my stuff under the name, “made by mie.” I really do love that name, but it was time to start over with something new.
First, I started to notice that the “Made by _______” market was pretty well covered by some fabulous and talented artists like made by RAE and Made By Lex. Then, I discovered that the name “madebymie” is already owned by someone on etsy! Although I could keep the name, my etsy shop would have to have a different address. But I didn’t want to have the same name as someone else! And I didn’t want it to be confusing for people to find me. So the search for a new name began.
Hideko and I tossed around A LOT of ideas. Some were ok, some were . . . not. I got some great suggestions from the Facebook world too! But this one just popped out of my mouth during one of our brainstorming sessions and I loved it. Short, simple and hopefully, easy to remember. I think it reflects who I am and the kinda thing I do.
So I started working on a new logo and banner. I decided to keep my lil girl doodle from years ago and give her a little makeover. Here it is, the old and the new!
Yes, it sucks that I had already put some work into the old logo and tagged some of the clothes I’ve made and gotten a stamp created and everything. But it’s still so early in the game and I’d rather make the switch now rather than later. I feel really good about the new name and excited to see where we’ll go from here!
So now it’s just you and mie! Nice to meet you 🙂
