Bogged down

It's been a hellish past few weeks, this being the reason for my slackness in updating my blog. Firstly, I got the bad news from the trademarks office that my 'yaya' trademark was too close to some Japanese company's trademark - they sell quilts and blankets, not even baby products but there is the belief that consumers will be deceived into believing that our two companies are related. Instead of fighting this for the next 15 months, I have decided to change the name of my label to 'Little L'. I've checked google and even though there is a, it's not a website that's in use and it's not a business that is trading in anything even closely related to baby products. I also conducted an ATMOSS search, and no such trademark exists. I feel like I'm ready to make the jump, and have already purchased the domain - but my experience has left me a bit scarred. These little setbacks can be so disheartening, and on top of that the real Little L has been battling a disgusting virus, breaking my heart with her high fevers and runny nose. She's been wanting lots of cuddles and reassurance, and I have been more than happy to oblige. I can't wait for my little one to feel better, and getting her better is my main focus at this stage. Once that's done, it'll be all systems go in reprinting business cards, labels, swing tags and updating my blog, facebook and twitter accounts (yep, the name change will cost me a pretty penny and a whole lot of time!) Stay tuned... xo
