I have.... exciting announcement.

When I started this blog, I promised that it would be "an Evolution". As I sit here today I realize so much has happened in my life that I am ready to bite off a bigger piece of my business development plan.

My wands have been doing well as people become more aware of them and begin to understand their magical power.

I have learned they mean more to me than just a project, they are an extension of my feelings.

Often times I find words and actions are not appropriate for certain occasions and I feel the magic wand can say or do more than we could ourselves.

It's a symbol of many things, most of all friendship and love.

It's a lasting reminder of a person's feelings and desires to make you happy.

Every time I create a new wand a little bit of me goes into it and it is my hope the magic is transferred to the recipient.

So...with my Evolution, I needed a new logo.

I have decided to work with a talented artist, Emily Grandin. Emily's blog, Art of the Masses, is a great example of her work and the inspiration around her.

I am going to use this line drawing Emily created as my new logo...its simplicity yet intricacy drew me in the first time I saw it. I love how the bird is using found elements to create it's home/nest.

Very much like me, taking bits and pieces of things found to create something comfortable and inviting, a safe yet beautiful place. The making of a home and a life is an Evolution, and this little bird tells the story oh so simply.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
