Hello again! I’m finally back to posting after some time away – the whole family came down with Covid and just after recovering from that the kids have all been suffering from colds, so it’s been non-stop illness around here. Thankfully, everyone is feeling well again! Which means that I can resume putting together some more crafty posts to share with you.
As you will have gathered from the title of this post – my blog now has a new name – Kindred + Willow! Just as we were all feeling rather miserable with Covidy symptoms, I thought to myself… what better time than now to completely change the name of my blog?! So I went off working away to change everything over from Pauper Handmade to Kindred + Willow. Though when I say ‘I,’ of course I really mean to say my lovely (incredibly patient) partner (and clever computer guy), did a lot of work to change all the bits that I am too much of a Luddite to figure out, so that everything would point to the right places and all the bits would work properly. I’m not actually sure what went on there, but I understand it caused a tiny bit of a headache. Eep! My bit was easy and all I had to do was change around a few logos on photos…which was a bit of a headache in itself, I might add.
Kindred + Willow
By way of explanation, I’ve been designing under the name Kindred + Willow for a little while now, with the intention of setting up a little shop to sell sustainable and small batch handmade products. I decided it would be best (for cohesion’s sake?) to have everything under one name. Oh yes, and those two words were arbitrarily put together as they are just two words I like quite a lot! Kindred – such a lovely old-fashioned word that evokes such a lovely sense of togetherness and willow because I simply love willows!
