What's in a name?..............




...........Have you noticed?........... the ever so slight bloggy name change? I have been pondering whether to do this for a while. When I started this blog, I had finished my job. I was entering down a new path. I had the time to start on a crafty journey, something I had wanted to do for a while. The blog was going to be my way of recording what I was doing. To jot down a few crafty thoughts, record my makes. I didn't think anyone would really find me, or read me. It was just for myself really. I wasn't really 100% sure of how it all worked if I was honest.


Well.......almost two years down the line and my blog has become something completely different to what I had originally thought it would be. It has become so much more. It has my makes, but it has a lot more of me in it, my daily life, all my loves, my highs, my lows and lot of thoughts! This blog is far more than just crafty, and I was beginning to feel that the name perhaps ought to reflect that a bit more. I didn't think it would be a big deal, but it does feel a bit weird....but weird doesn't mean that's bad does it?.......a good weird! As this little old blog of mine has become a sort of a diary of my life in general, I thought that was what it should be called!

So......a new name......ish!

Have a lovely sunshiny day all!!!!!!

    I have been blogging for about the same length too. And Have wondered whether the name of my blog reflects its content. But weather is be sewing stitches or wooly ones I think I can get away with it....... just! lol and truthfully I like the name too much!

    Hope you have a lovely day.

  13. Loving the new look and the new name is great.
    I've been having name issues recently so the 'what's in a name question' has been on my mind a lot. Someone has set up a blog with a very similar name to mine.

  21. Vanessa's journal is perfecto ;0)x
    i love the idea of it being a diary...i often think my blog name doesnt really reflect me anymore- i do like the whimsical charm of it, but at first it was gonna be just about my art n drawings...but now its made me realise how much i love interiors,thrifty buys, photography and home tales. i guess ive been so inspired by blogs like yours vanessa that its taken my blog to new avenues and loves...i'd love it to just be called Kazzy Tales...but hey ho im not sure?!!
    I love your new header tooo!! do you create that on photoshop???? i love the windows seperated and all the colourful words. im Not very good with styly's.
    Your piccys are like a perfect homes mag!
    i bet your home is a real treasure!

  23. loving the new banner..and the new name!
    I share your reasons for blogging - and like the idea of my boys being able to look back at their childhood through my eyes (and today, their own...have a guest blogger!)
    Yours is one of my very favourites!

  26. I like the new name! It's much more suited to your blog. Must feel weird, I'm sure, if you've had the same name since 'birth'!

    The photos on your banner are gorgeous too, I wish wish wish I could take such pretty photos.

  31. Hi Vanessa, I absolutely love your new look and name change! It totally reflects your tone and style. It all looks STUNNING. I keep saying to my husband that my little blog is my diary and god forbid I get hit by a bus, then my children can see the things their mum did. Have a fab week hon.
