since its been awhile since you’ve seen my kids, i thought i’d start this post off with a handful of totally unrelated photos!
this is what i wake up with nearly every morning, although gracie is usually the cheeriest (not in this pic)
this is my girls and their best friends waiting as the gates are opened at the zoo. best trip ever to the local zoo! i highly recommend going first thing in the morning because all the animals were so active – i even had fun!
and here’s lulu. oh, how typical is this picture of her! her ice cream dropped off the cone onto the bench. so what did she do? she just set down the empty cone and picked up the melting ball of ice cream! 5 minutes later she had an appointment with the garden hose.
lots of ideas out there for the new business name! thanks guys for all your help. i still want to get more ideas, though. after reading all those comments, i’m realizing a little bit more about what i want the name to sound like/feel like. i actually think i don’t want the name to reflect anything related to sewing. i know, that sounds crazy, considering the business, but i want to leave my options more open to other business opportunities that may come along that may not be sewing related. so for now i’ll give you my favorites from your suggestions and what i love about them, so maybe that can be a jumping off point for you:
*fresh picked* suggested by deborah w – i really like the feeling of this one, especially since i work so much with floral fabrics, and my new love of making fabric flowers. super fun!
*girl on the red swing* suggested by robbin – now this is what i’m talking about! something totally random, but sweet and imaginative and creative! i can totally picture the cutest logo of a silhouette of a tree with a red swing dangling from a branch! this one has got me really thinking…
*something about my kids names or phrases they say* mentioned by lots of you – i like the idea of this, but nothing has jumped out as “the one” just yet.
so there you have it! still undecided. maybe i should change the name of this blog to that – “undecided”! ha! but i need to make a decision quick because my incredible sister/graphic designer is able to get to work on a logo now, and maybe not for long, so keep the ideas coming!
oh, and jeannett, the reason why i’m changing names in the first place is because i don’t think i’d want to buy a product that was labeled “imperfect”, you know? it sounds too much like “flawed”. but i am a total imperfectionist and that may come through a bit in my work, not being totally anal about certain things. hmmm….
