Thank you to everyone who sent entries for the name contest via comments & emails.  I really appreciate it.  It was JUST what I needed to get the ball rolling with this project.  I didn’t realize until after I started this name contest, that it was actually 2 separate contests.  One for the items on Etsy, and one for the upcoming venture that I am getting ready to leap off into.  🙂 

Here is the master list of names for scarves and bags:

  • Love Runneth Over
  • Sweet Winter
  • Midsummer Night’s Dream
  • Fairy Wings
  • Candy Girl
  • Bubble Bath Bliss
  • Orange you Glad You Bought Me
  • Morning Sensation
  • North by Northwest
  • Northern Lights
  • Alaskan Summer
  • Alaskan Winter
  • Las Delicias
  • When I’m not here I’m cooking
  • What’s for dinner?
  • The Sweetest Thing
  • Dew You Miss Me
  • No Ordinary Garden
  • Fall Fling
  • Plum Passion
  • Savory Seaweed
  • Sweet Valentine
  • Sun Kissed
  • Alaska Bound
  • Sweet Home Alaska
  • Carte Blanche
  • Sweet Romance
  • Delightful Dahlia

Now all of the bag/scarf names can and will be used.  So that is great!  The harder part was narrowing the business name down to something more fitting…  I coerced my friend Laura (whom I am hoping to not-so secretly partner with in this business) to help out!

Drum Roll please…                                                                

Here is the master list of names for our new business adventure:

  • Synergy
  • Hearth
  • Synergy Hearth
  • Simply Handmade 
  • The Stash
  • The Cache
  • The Handmade Stash
  • MagArt
  • The Sewing Shack
  • The Sewing Shoppe
  • Simply Handcrafted
  • Fabrics ‘n Fairbanks
  • Needle in a Haystack
  • Patterns and Patches
  • Caribou Crafts
  • Boats and Totes
  • The Knitting Room
  • The Knit Stitch
  • The Sewing Machine
  • Sewing Destiny
  • Penguin Threads
  • Moose & Yarn
  • Heavenly Hemmed
  • Stitches and Stashes
  • Blissful Stitches
  • Mag Totes

What a list!  🙂  When Laura and I started looking at the lists, some names were very obvious contenders and others were definitely not.  Nothing too cutesy, something that suggests the content, nothing with our names, but something all artists can relate to. 

The final name:

The Stash: A place for learning and creating all things handmade.

Ta Da!  We like the fact that all artists, regardless of their medium of choice have a stash of sorts.  Whether it is pencils, fabric, glass, wood, paint, paper, etc.

What do you think?  I am anxious to hear from you!

As I lay awake from 2-6 a.m. last night all I could think about were names! 

Nice huh? 

I came to the conclusion that my brain is not very ‘snappy’ in the cool name department.  So I am BEGGING for you help.  🙂  PLEASE!!!  Save me from my nights of sleeplessness…

So here goes!  I need some really cool-catchy names for my items that I have listed on Etsy.  I noticed that lots of the other sellers are very whimsical in theirs.  Here are the items listed and my dreary names… 

Now if you are not familiar with my bags, their shape stays relatively the same, their fabrics and accessories change.  If you needed to know that?  🙂 

I have also been toying with the name for the shop, if and when it comes to be.   Mostly because it is too cumbersome for me to refer to it as the ’boutique/lounge/classroom thing’.  I would like something descriptive about its nature.  Some of the ideas that I keep coming back to are:

  • Simply handmade
  • (Something) handmade
  • All handmade

I guess you can get the picture that my brain is NOT good with names.  🙂  So I am begging all of you, my dear cyber-friends, to help me come up with a name.  What is in it for you, you ask????  How about a brand new tote bag?  Made by little old me?  You can even pick your colors – OR – it can be a surprise to you!  Your choice…  So let the games begin, I guess I am actually starting a CONTEST

So let’s give it a deadline of Saturday, January 19th. 

Cheers!  🙂
