2/27 — …wait, what?
This isn’t as out-of-the-blue as that; it’s been coming for probably a year, and it’s part of the reason why the Great Anticipated Relabeling has taken so damn long. I didn’t want to have to relabel everything twice, and this had to happen.
See, it’s the Om Shanti part. I’m not Indian, I’m not Hindu; I don’t even do yoga. I got to feeling like I’d set my booth up in someone else’s front yard to sell my stuff, and I wasn’t even giving them a cut of what I was making. I felt, long story short, like I was taking something that was someone else’s. It wasn’t right.
…and then of course I spent seven or eight months flailing around trying to figure out the PERFECT NAME. I’m really pleased with what I wound up with, though — The Vagabond Tabby — it’s got a lot of both me and my VP of Marketing in it, and a lot of looking ahead to us getting ourselves on the road.
Things will catch up to the new name a little slowly. The new labels are done (as witness above), but I’m still working on taking new pictures of everything (they’re going up little by little; some of you may have seen them already.). The new web address is waiting on my webgeek, who has had a bit of a life explosion recently, but it’s coming soon. New business cards will happen sometime after I’ve gotten all the pictures taken.
It’ll all get done when it gets done. It’ll be the Slowest Business Launch Ever! And I’m pretty okay with that. After all, I’m not in a hurry.
