Who Knew?

Who knew coming up with a name for my business could and would be so hard?
It took me weeks and weeks.
It was agonizing.
I think I asked everyone who'd listen their opinion.
Thanks everyone for listening - and encouraging me!
I think this silly name thing was consuming me.
I'd lay in bed at night with my husband and we'd suggest names to each other.
Seriously, the name for my shop took more time to come up with than any of our 5 children.
But, I like the name we came up with.
But it could have been.........
  • Surrender Dorothy!!!
  • onewomanscraps
  • Dozey Dotes
  • Sweet Caroline's (really liked this one but it was already used)
  • Rosehill Creations (loved this one too because it has family significance - but again -already used)
  • Stuff 'n' Stuff
  • Crafty Crap (actually this is what I ended up labeling most of my sewing supply boxes when we moved last summer...I was getting tired of packing and labeling)
  • More Crafty Crap (just doesn't inspire you to trust me and buy from me does it?)
And the list goes on and gets sillier mostly because these shop naming sessions happened late at night when my brain wasn't working at top speed. Come to think of it I'm not sure my brain ever works at top speed but at that time of night it's definitely slower than slow.
I need to give a little shout out to Lauren for designing my blog/shop banner and my button.
(feel free to grab the code for the button and put it on your blog - you know - share the love)
Back to Lauren - She was amazing and so kind to help me out with this. She even put off getting ready for girls camp to help me out. Now that's a true friend, and she's fun and she has a great blog too, check it out here!!!!!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Lauren!
