Maytree Lane is where I was born, in Loughborough, and it had white cottages and lots of trees. My Dad was a soldier and he was stationed there. I chose it as my brand name because it is personal to me and also sounds natural and flowery, like my products.
My amazingly lovely hubby has just made me a logo. He is a graphic designer, so I roped him in to turn my sketchy sketch into something "proper" and I love it. I wanted a may tree, and was going to have a little stitched white cottage, but then I wanted to stitch some buttons onto the tree, and it went from there...
He just kind of got what I wanted straight away, and did a draft, and then we picked out colours and textures. The text is a font he remodelled to match my signature (he's so clever with this stuff - he baffles me).
I also have a little label to match, which is the cutest :)
I have really jumped in at the deep end with all this Folksy, blogging, tweeting, facebook, myspace, adding html, and editing photos. If you had told me last February I would have been doing all this I would never have believed it.
I'm so excited! (and I just can't hide it...)
I feel like a real businesswoman now - like I could make this really happen.
I even got my new website signed up and registered lastnight.
Watch this space - I don't know what's coming next, but I'm sure as Hell gonna be up all night writing lists again tonight!
