What's in a Name?
Did you know that when I received my first sewing machine back in 2005 the only thing I sewed was paper? Originally The Paper Chick made invitations, scrapbooks and mixed media art. Over time my love of fabric and fibers overtook my love of paper (although I do still love to dabble in mixed media) yet the name The Paper Chick remained. As our company has grown I've started to wish for a name that the company could settle into a little more, one that felt more like home.
I've been toying with the idea of rebranding and this feels like the right time. With the new name comes a beautiful new logo designed by Alex Weires, a new website (with a few surprise listings with the last of our Paper Chick logo tags, quick grab them) and the resurrection of the blog.
To us the porch light is synonymous with a lot of feel good thoughts, to me it's means coming home. I love to come home in the evening to find the porch light is on, to know that someone has peeked out the front window to see if I was back yet and thought to switch on the light to lead the way. Home also means my studio, a warm and comforting space.
This name feels like something warm we can settle into, it feels like home.
