The name!

Hi there!

Well, as I promised I will tell you the new name of my shop! ;)

I changed it, because I thought 'LM kwadraat' sounded a little too 'technical', it had an abbreviation and it was too Dutch. But I still wanted to do something with my (and my mom's) initials!

So now I found the perfect name! It's not Dutch, but French. A lovely language and a little bit more 'international' (for some reason..). (I love Paris (and France), I visited Paris six times now and I hope to make many more trips to that amazing city!)
It still has something to do with LM and it suits the style of the shop; it's more sweet and feminine than 'LM kwadraat'.

The only thing is; I did not come up with the name myself, but the lovely Laura Manfre (a.k.a. Sister Planet) did! As you can see, her initials are also LM!
I probably will be selling her cute illustrations in my shop! Thank you, Laura!!

What do you get when you say L M in French? Yes, indeed! Two words, and they mean; She loves. Of course I will be selling all kinds of things that I (and hopefully a lot of you ladies out there) love!

The new name of the shop will be...
