Hey friends! A bit of housekeeping today, aka a blog rename. When I started this blog like 8 months ago, I just used my instagram handle and thought that would work for a while. But I created my instagram handle several years ago when I thought my posts would be more generically home-crafty. I never could have imagined how much I would fall in love with sewing. Or that I’d discover a creative outlet for the first time in my life.
So over time, the name The Nesting Crane started to feel less representative of my focus. Yes, I’m still a total nester, and love snuggling down into different parts of my life. A sense of belonging is definitely one of my biggest values and needs. Yes, I still have a huge thing for paper cranes, and probably always will (good thing since there’s one inked on my skin!). But I’ve wanted to shift toward a name that can grow with me, but I didn’t really know what that might be until recently.
Moving forward, this blog will be called MiekoMade. I wanted to keep the nod to my Japanese roots (hence the paper cranes), so I decided to use my middle name (pronounced mee-AY-ko). I’ll still be sharing sewing adventures and my journey toward a wardrobe that I love.
Traffic from The Nesting Crane will be forwarded here. So no worries if you have the other name stuck in your head for a little bit. I’m really excited about this new name and hope it can fit me as I grow! Thanks for sticking with me friends. I love being a part of this little sewing family so very much!
