Taking a mini vacation from the Sadie shop has been a good thing for me. I've had time to catch up on some other projects and really focus on the fun wedding stuff we've been working on. But being on vacation hasn't stopped me from working on new Sadie pieces and dreaming up new directions for both my shop and blog. It's been a big year and I think it might be time for some change.
That's the real topic of this post. I'm thinking about changing the name of this blog. Sadie has really changed since I started it nearly two years ago, and the name just doesn't seem quite right anymore. The new name I have in mind expresses the themes of this blog a little better, I think, and also represents the things I make a little more accurately. As many of you know, Sadie was named as a tribute to the first pet that Jeff and I had together, but now I'm thinking about where we want our lives to go and what I find most inspiring these days. I love living so close to the mountains and ocean, travelling, discovering new materials (like the black tourmaline slabs, pink jasper, and antique tin above), learning new things (Emily and I have been tie-dyeing up a storm this summer) and sharing the photos that I take along the way. So, I think a new name for all of this might be in order. After all, I'm finished school now, in a couple of weeks I'll be a married woman, and I'm in my 30s now. A lot has changed in the last few years.
Do you want to know what name I'm thinking of, or should it be a surprise when/if I take the leap?
