My Etsy Shop

March 1, 2012

Wow, It has been awhile since I have been on here. I guess I am a 1980s girl because I still like to pick up the phone and talk to people. Looking back on 2011. In January I felt the need to do something creative and fulfilling for me in my spare time. Since art and hands on activity has always been my forte I opened up an etsy shop. Now THIS I did online, so I guess I am a business women of the 2000s. lol! I love that I can do it in my spare time around my husbands and kids schedules. My shop name automatically was my user name Lesha625. At first I was unable to change it, but now I can. I want to have a fitting, catchy, easy to spell and remember name. Please comment and throw out any ideas you have. I do a lot of monogram signs, address sign, some children's art and I love to upcycle- paint or reuse old things to update them or spice them up. Some ideas I have are Primped&Painted, ColorMeHappy, SpiceItUpDecor, LoveLesha. What does everyone think? I do mostly custom painted monogram and address signs. But I do some childrens art, and up cycling too. I want to continue to do it all. Most of my items involve painting, and when I up cycle I make old things look pretty again (or primped) by painting them.

Hey Leesha, just saw your plea for help on Facebook...and thought hey...I'd want someone to answer this for here I am on the fly! :)
I know where you are coming from. This is tougher than you might think!
I just looked up the word primp...and it said something about to make something pretty in a fussy way. I have to tell you...this makes me think of scary Victorian stuff...not to mention primp sounds a bit like "hey yo...pimp my ride!" or in your case "hey yo...primp my home!" Hee hee hee...

When I look at your things I think of something "Hip and also... Charming" I would steer clear of locking yourself into a name that says too much about what you do right now in case you decide to change it up later. Keep it simple like you don't want to sound festidious. I also love your personal name (Lesha)'s so maybe capitolize on that? I personally like the names of shops that don't really mean anything...other than to define a "feel" of what their shop carries.

ok, I'm rambling I hope you can find something you like. I also hope you are ok with all this constructive criticism I'm offering per your request. I love businesses...and naming them too! When we named Grandiflora we all sat around a dining table with an old fashioned rotary phone and took turns lifting it up and "fake" answering it!! Haaa!!! OH YES WE DID! ;D

My random names for you: (now I sound like a fortune cookie "your lucky numbers are: 22, 45, & 9") hee hee hee...

1. LeshaLoves
2. HomeCharms
3. PotluckHome

Not thinking you'll use 'em...but at least it's a wall to bounce your ideas off of!

Whatever you decide...I'm sure you'll do great! All my best!
