Welcome to the Petal Pixie Blog & Website (formally known as Chic Design Studios)!
I am so excited to let you all in on my secret project I have been cooking up! In the fall of 2011 I decided to make the leap and re-brand and change my business name from Chic Design Studios to something spectacular. I had no clue what the name would be but I knew it had to be done. It wasn’t until the end of December I was bouncing name ideas off my best friend that he suggested Petal Pixie. I LOVED it! It felt good, sounded even better, and was totally ME! I contacted some of my dearest industry friends, bounced the name off them, and next thing you know Petal Pixie started to form and the process began!
Some of you are probably thinking, “Why would you change your name?” The only answer I have is this, one day I realized I wasn’t being true to myself or my art. I was hiding behind a blanket a safe place where I could be easily looked over.
The name Petal Pixie is a very personal choice and reflection of my personality and style. I personally struggled with it for months, “Am I making the right choice? Where will this change take me? What will people think?” I replayed these questions in my mind over and over again. But with the help of my closest friends and colleagues the fear and anxiety lessened and I couldn’t deny that this adjustment was the best decision I have ever made.
I hope you all enjoy the new look and feel that is Petal Pixie! I am very excited about this change and hope that it provides me with all the opportunities and desires I dream about. I am so grateful for all my family, friends, colleagues, and clients (past, present, and future) that support me and help me grow as a person and designer. Let the journey begin!!!
