New Year, New Us!

I'm not one to keep/make resolutions in the new year (we all know how those turn out), but I do like to make some changes when January 1st rolls around, for myself and my family. Over Christmas, Jayme and I talked about how we could improve our shops/blogs, and the answer we finally came up with was this: simplify. So....er....simple. We have two vintage shops and two blogs (on top of working other part time jobs, being mamas to two awesome little girls and wives to two awesome dudes), and it was starting to get overwhelming.

For 2012, we've decided to combine--Miskabelle will now feature a section devoted entirely to vintage kiddo clothes and another section devoted to vintage maternity wear. No boring fillers, just awesome vintage in excellent condition. The Miskabelly blog, while it's been fun and has introduced us to many lovely women through the web, will be no more. Our focus will now be on making this a vintage lifestyle blog, which, very loosely, just means we'll be sharing things we love (occasional pics of our babies in vintage outfits, shop updates, outfit posts, house tours, etc.), with a specific focus on our Etsy shop and shopping for vintage. This business is our baby and we want to make it the best it can be.

That also means you probably won't be reading many personal posts about losing weight, breastfeeding woes, etc. Not that we won't be real--because we always are--but our central focus will be on our love of pretty vintage things. We're hoping to share more about thrifting experiences (some of which have been AWESOME), cooking vegan/gluten-free foods, being sisters, and about our creative lives outside of blogging/Etsy-ing (as a writer and visual artist!). So, in many ways, you'll get to know us even better. ;)

We also have some fun little changes to share with our shop, first and foremost being our updated, totally eco-friendly packaging (sneak peek coming to the blog this week!).

We hope you'll stay...or if you're just joining us, come along for the ride!

Thanks for reading, supporting, encouraging, commenting, buying, etc. We are so grateful.



  1. I'm sorry to see the blog go, but it seems like you have great plans for the future of Miskabelle. I'm looking forward to checking out the vintage kids clothes section!

  2. Totally understand the streamlining. But I do hope you'll have the occasional personal post. I love those! :)
