So this is it. I’ve done it. I’ve gone and rebranded to What Stacy Loves without a plan. Why? Because it was time for a change. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Sawdust and High Heels, but I’ve been feeling for a while now that I need to branch out.
Yes, I’m broadening my niche
Despite what the experts are saying, I want to broaden my niche from just home and DIY to something that covers all aspects of life; to something that feels expansive and not restrictive.
And thus, What Stacy Loves is born
I have no idea what the final product is going to look like. For now, this is going to be a space for me to share what I’m loving. A space for me to share who I’m loving. I may share my favourite coffee spots today and then ponder love and marriage tomorrow. I’m going to experiment with what feels right in the moment; what I feel called to share in the moment and take it from there.
It’s about the journey
I’m open to new possibilities. I’m hoping to create a community of people who love on each other, who support and uplift each other. A place where community reigns over competition absolutely.
I may fail
In fact, it’s practically guaranteed. But if I don’t fail I won’t know what works and what doesn’t work. I won’t know where I need to pivot and where I need to stay the course. So I prefer not to look at setbacks as failures; I choose to look at them as lessons.
I will succeed
I believe that the lessons that I learn through this process will set me up for success. The reason that I’m taking you along for the ride with me is that I want to show you the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want to demonstrate that failing at something doesn’t mean that it’s the end. I want to prove to you that there is no such thing as failure. Only lessons and growth that will serve you in in the long run.
And that’s it, for now. I’ve started the change slowly; first on Instagram and now here on the blog. I’m keeping the history of Sawdust and High Heels, because I believe that it’s important to preserve our history, whether that be to learn from our mistakes or to celebrate our successes.
I’m looking forward to this new adventure and I hope that you will join me for the ride!
