My Own Etsy Shop... Need a Name!!

Ok, I've been debating for a while now to open up my own Etsy Shop. It seems to be the latest buzz and I've been encouraged by family, friends and even customers from where I work to just go for it!

This next week I am going to work really hard on getting my craft area organized and get some projects rolling and hopefully by the end of the week I can get some stuff listed. What all do you like to buy on Etsy?? Do you like to buy individual items such as cards or do you like them in a set? Anyone looking for a special subject or theme? What are your top 5 product searches when you go on Etsy?

I guess the first thing I need to do is come up with a catchy name... that's my biggest hurdle right now! I mean, I had to hold a contest for someone to name my blog, thanks again Shannon Blinn! I'm creative in the arts department, but not on the title part.


For all my friends, family and blog lurkers that might read this, I need your help!! Help name my Etsy Shop!

I would most likely start out with some papercrafts, maybe stamped cards, tags, embellishments or something incorporating my photography. Then maybe I'll move onto some Mixed Media painted projects.

If you have any suggestions on a name for my Etsy Store, please leave a comment below with a way for me to get in touch with you. Also, please let me know what you look for when searching Etsy, I need all the info I can get!

If I choose your name or part of the name, I will send you a RAK of your favorite hobby supply (about $10 Retail worth), so please let me know if you are a stamper, scrapper, jewelry maker, etc, in your comment post! I work at Crafts Direct and we have a huge selection of crafts that I'd be delighted to send you a thank you gift for your good deed!

I figure if I get some outside help, I can stop procrastinating and actually get the ball rolling a lot faster!

Thanks Everyone! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

How about Scrappin' . . .with Cheese?

That is my favorite because if you cross over into media creations you will want something other than "crafts". You'll want an all around name to encompass all the work you do.
