What's in a name?

Now that my collections have been designed, made and photographed I have been procrastinating to name each piece. To me it's almost like naming my children, I want to be absolutely in love with the names! I was so sick of the names I had carelessly chosen on the pieces in my etsy shop and couldn't wait to be rid of them! I've kept a list by my side at all times should a word pop into my mind that just had to be used. I've also bugged my friends and family to no end for their ideas. Finally after pages and pages of words I knew I could avoid no longer. Since you don't get to see what they look like until the website launches I will share a few names with you instead. Here are some favorites...

Pickle Patch (pretty sure this is already a top seller and it's not even available yet, I'm just sayin.)

Dolly Dimples

Pretty Ditty Lo Lo (gotta throw my baby girl's name in there somewhere ;)

Naked Dance

Shanty Hose


Woa now, almost couldn't stop myself from sharing the whole list. I know I don't need to say this but for PETE's SAKE I am sooooooooo excited about them! Ok, back to sewing and only sewing. We have been shipping every single day, it's crazy loco up in here people. (that means double crazy if you no speak espanol)

I'm so excited for you that your business is doing so well!
You're names sound super fun, I can't wait to see what you're tempting me with!
Ya got talent girl, and it's so nice of you to share it!
Now don't forget to take a break and have a little time to yourself!

Love the names! Just thought that I'd let you know my MIL picked up a Whippycake for me for a birthday surprise and I LOVE it! I wore it today and got oodles of compliments on it. Thank you!

Bret is not a fan of Naked Dance, lol. He thinks it's inappropriate. I think it's cheeky and cute but he doesn't get it :(

Bret said...

I didn't say it was inappropriate. I just said it reminded me of sex. I think from the male species' perspective I am not alone to think that Naked Dance = Sex. But because your audience is mostly female, then maybe you can get away with it. ;)

Yes, I love naked dance! Haha Bret! you are right, it's a guy thing! It doesn't take much ....

HELLO my name is Jill said...

Hi Becki! I am wondering if you have a place local you sell your headbands. We are going to CA next week and we're doing a family photo and wouldn't it be fun to add some zazz?!?! Do you even have any to sell at the moment? Just wondering.

thanks, Jill
