The past few days my camera has gotten a workout! I've been playing around with photography and different ways to show off my bags. I've been adding little props to my photos, like buttons and spools of thread, to add a little spark to my pictures.
I'm not doing this just because I have lots of free time, I actually have a huge announcement to make! Over the last year the name "Mini Pip" hasn't felt like me. I started my blog to go with my etsy shop but over the years, half of my posts are about etsy and half are about other creations I sew, mainly apparel. I started to feel like I had outgrown Mini Pip.
I wanted to change my name but had NO CLUE what to call myself. When I was first thinking of names years and years ago, my mom always told me to have my name in my shop name but I didn't want Trish in my title. Don't ask me why. Little life lesson: Always listen to your mother. A few weeks ago, the perfect name popped into my head and I've spent those weeks getting ready to move everything around.
I am so very happy to announce my new name: Trish Stitched.
Over the next week or so--hopefully no longer than that-- I will be transferring all social media links and titles to Trish Stitched.
I'm also leaving the Typepad world for Wordpress. Typepad was great at first and a site I thought I could grow into but it isn't user friendly and I'm ready for an upgrade. My new blog can be found at trishstitched.com. It isn't ready just yet but I wanted to give plenty of notice. I've been reading up on the "blog moving" process and learned that the Bloglovin reader will move everyone over after I tell them about the change of address. So if you follow on Bloglovin, I don't think you'll have to do anything! But if you do follow from another reader, you may have to follow the new blog once it is up and running.
I hope you continue to follow me even though I'm changing things up a bit. I'll have more info when I do some more work. And one last update: I did put my Mini Pip etsy shop on "vacation mode" but my new shop TrishStitched is up and ready to go!
