I need your help!!!! and I am willing to reward you for it!!!

Ok my online friends out their in computer land I sincerely need some help! I have been wanting to open my own website/online store for a while now. As some of you may know I do some illustrating for some digi stamp lines for crafting, and I would really love to be able to feature some of these things and sell them on my own as well. But I have been sooooo afraid to commit to a name because I mean one I really want it to be great! and catchy! and something that will grow with me and I wont have to change. What I mean by grow with me is i want to start with digi stamps and papers and digi scrapbook kits all designed by me! yay! but then I want to eventually be able to sell other products as well papers adhesives other stamps etc. and then once my hubby and I can grow into a bigger home and if this business grow I'd like to have a workshop in my home (like a whole guesthouse designated for this) and I want it to be an open boutique where people can shop, but I can also host crops like coffe crops or wine tasting crops or cocktail night crops or afternoon tea crops etc I love themes I love parties and I so want to bring that to people where they can craft at the same time.

I thought about the Crafty Cafe or the Scrap Room, but I don't really know what to do?!?! ugggghhhh

So this is where it gets fun....for you that is.....I am opening this up to all of you wonderful people out their in computer land!

I am holding a contest! First round come up with original fun names for me, and post them in the comment sections, you have until the end of this month, April 30th midnight pacific standard time.

I will then take my fav's and set up a poll with my top 10 (k if i can get it down to that since i am so indecisive! ugh but i will do my best!) If your name suggestion makes my top 10 list you can pick any 5 digi images or sets from my line here on my other blog no mater the price or size, your 5 favorites are yours just for helping me come up with a top ten pick of names for my future company!

Then Round 2 begins!!! yay I will open up the pole for lets say 2 weeks until friday april 15th midnight pacific standard time. The name with the highest amount of votes will win! now what might you ask do you win? well it has to me awesome and amazing don;t you think if you just helped me name my future company right.....if your name idea is picked you will win every single digi item I have on my other blog, every single image every set, the whole kit and caboodle on CD or DVD (I havent tried to burn it so I dont know how big it is yet) PLUS (oh yes we are not stopping there) .... you will get a free digi copy of every digi stamp, digi paper, digi anything I create for sale for the whole of 2009!!!!! PLUS ..oh yes their is more! I will also send you a great package of mixed products maybe some papers, some chipboard albums, some shimmer it paints some card scents some glitters..... I don't know what it will be but I PROMISE you I will make it amazing! maybe by the time we get to round 2 I can have it pulled together and get a photo up ok?!

Sooooooo, What do you think of that?!?!

So please please please put your thinking caps on, spread the word and lets see what we can come up with!

Is Pink Papery Studios your name? If so, I would use that somehow.. Pink Paperie... a Paper Crafter's Boutique. Or something like that.

You have a great vision, Lindsay, hold onto that. Even if it takes a while to reach your final destination. Your designs are great.

Hi Lindsay, all sounds very exciting & I've just had a look at your digi-stamps they're fab!

How about Lindsay's Craft Pad, tells people who you are & what you do plus implies a place to get together. All the best with it anyway

Hi Lindsay,

I don't know you very well, but I used to own a website when I sold cards and I think that you should definitely choose a name that reflects you. I LOVE coffee, so personally anything Cafe is way cute to me! I guess I hesitate to comment b/c I don't know you that well but I wish you luck whatever the name is!

I think it would be GREAT if you ventured out on your own and took credit for your designs...not to mention making $$! I've only seen some, but you are very talented artist and I wish you luck, girl!

Dee said...

I wish I could help - I'm so bad at things like this lol. I thought Scrap Shack ...or the Scrap Boutiqe. Simple and to the point. See...I told you I was bad at this LOL!!! Hugz - Dee :)

Georgia Ehrmann said...

Ok... I'm back with a few more suggestions!
How about:
Dream Girls
My Corner on the World!
Dreams Do Come True...
Uniquely Yours

I'm still thinking on it!

Lindsay - I love your images!! You have such talent!! I'm very happy for you that you've decided to venture out on your own with the digi-images.

Names are so hard... How about "Craft Therapy" or "Color Me Happy"

Best of luck to you!!
