changes for nic

so, between being 6 months pregnant, working on my still-young stationery business, and still attempting to outfit our home, you would think that i have enough on my plate. but no! if you know me, you know i just can't stop myself.

i'm working on expanding my business. since i do other design and illustration work that is not strictly wedding-related, i cannot use NicEvents as my main and sole identity. so i'm expanding my header, and developing NicStudio. NicStudio will be the parent company to all my "divisions", such as NicEvents, NicIllustration, NicDesign, etc. exciting, no?

as you can see, my banner for the blog has changed to reflect my developing new identity. NicEvents will soon undergo a similar change. in the meantime, you can check out the placeholder on my new main site, thenicstudio.com.

additionally, i'm working on a new line of cards for my etsy shop, dearnic. the cards will be available soon (hopefully within the month), and will continue to be sold while i'm on leave. so keep an eye out here for my announcement.

i'm very excited about this change. everything will be ready to launch right before or right after my maternity leave, and will herald a whole new year for my work. i hope to keep seeing you here and in my email, so that i can continue to share my thoughts, work, and influences.

Being pregnant does not seem to reduce your level of energy. This proves again how hard is it to select a right name as you start a business. And there is no easy solution to this dilemma.

Congratulations on the expansion of your business!
