Cherry Blossom Charm, six years ago you were so cute, subtle, and and quirky. I liked that you were unique, and held so many possibilities. Sure, I got a lot of questions about who you were, and some interesting looks when I tried to explain, but that was okay, I still loved you.
Slowly though, we began to grow apart… I tried giving you a makeover, but the more I tried to make us work, the more I found that we just never seemed to fit. It’s not you, it’s me… I’ve moved on to someone more simple and direct. Someone who fits my needs much better. And so, I say good-bye to you today, Cherry Blossom Charm. Maybe we can still be friends…?
Okay, in all seriousness…
Six years ago this month I took a chance and launched my business, Cherry Blossom Charm. I started out wanting to design a wide range of pretty products and blog, so I came up with a name that didn’t say exactly what I did, and didn’t hold me to one specific product/service. With time, I became more and more interested in designing printables. It offered so much of what I love to do – graphic design, party plan, decorate, and so that became my sole focus.
With time, I also grew to hate my business name. It was long and hard for people to understand. I got to a point where I was embarrassed to even tell anyone my name. After some time off after the birth of my daughter, and then trying to adjust to life as a full time and working mom, I realized I needed a refresh. I couldn’t go on with my business and be excited about it if I hated my name, and so I decided to go simple and direct with my name. I am so excited to now be Charming Printables, and it’s even better that it has always been my Etsy shop name, anyway. :)
The evolution of my brand…
Printables will always be my focus, but I am definitely looking to expand the types of printables I offer, and eventually add an online shop to my website. I am so excited about this “relaunch” and I’m looking forward to all the possibilities to come!
