    Beautiful work! Thank you for sharing your journey (I know couldn’t resist the play with “wander” 🙂 ) to finding and working with your perfect graphic artist. I understand this complexity as someone whose been in private practice for many, many moons. It was about 3 years into my practice when I finally hired a marketing/web designer (our 11th year anniversary together just passed). He’s been my everything. Marketing decisions, web design, SEO, branding, social media – the works.

    I couldn’t recommend him more highly for someone who knows how to get you out there and noticed on the ‘net. He may have been spendy (and continues to be the main cost to my business) but he’s been worth every penny 10 fold. If you find the right person, they can make your business a success…make it into that business that does support you comfortably to live in a place you love being with your favourite human and beasts 🙂

      Hi Kathleen!
      You’re so right, the cost is definitely to be viewed as an ‘investment’, and can do wonders for your brand. That’s so great that you’ve found the perfect designer – 11 years hey! I wonder where I’ll be in 11 years 🤔 hopefully in that house I keep dreaming about 🤣
      Is your web designer local to you? The lady that did our branding is in the USA, but that’s the marvel about technology… I had the choice of anyone in the world! 🤯

    Hey! I’ve been following for a while now, but this is my first comment. I love your style – personal and creative, both writing and fashion! We share our favourite colours. I’m a fellow amateur sewist, but I knew that your sewing blog was the blog for me when I saw a picture of you and your hair! Notwithstanding the gorgeous fabrics you use. For me, life is too short not to live it with colour and pattern. I actually have to send you a picture of my all-time favourite maxi dress, sadly not one of my makes – bright pink, purple and turquoise feather print. But I need some good daylight to take a picture, so watch this space.

    Actually, I think you must have been a dream to work with for the artist; because you have such a strong sense of self and concept for your brand. I love your new logo – I think the watercolour element is inspired. Your mood boards are awesome, and I think an artist who enjoys working in that style would have found your project a dream to work on. Now I feel like I should have written more about sewing, since I love your makes and how you walk us through each one. I guess there’s time for that.

    *I have one final ask – please do a blog post and tell us how you dye your hair such fantastic colours! OK, fan-girl moment over.

      Hey hey! 👋🏻
      Pleased t’meetcha!
      Glad to hear you’re enjoying the blog 😘 (and also happy to hear we share the same favourite colours… clearly we both have *impeccable* taste 😝)
      Agreed that life is too short to fade into the background – I want all the colour, all the patterns, all the time 😍 That maxi dress sounds like my dream fabric… defo send the picture!
      Getting the logo designed was actually a really smooth process… probably because, like you say, I already had a strong idea of the style I wanted. I’m really happy with all the new branding!
      I actually did consider doing a little hair-dye process insight… but didn’t think anyone would be interested 🤣
      I spotted your website name… the husbeast is celiac so we have a gluten free kitchen! (I am therefore mostly gluten-free by default, because we eat the same meals at home) 🍒🍏🥕🥦

    A stunning rebrand and you can totally see “you” in it. Good luck for the future. I hope you get to that house!
