    I need a name for my online "store."

    I know this is the place to get some great suggestions.

    I am going to open a "store" on Etsy soon. If you haven't heard of it, Etsy is a site where people sell homemade crafts. You can get just about ANYTHING on Etsy, from clothing and accessories to home decor, pet stuff to wedding items, and on and on.

    At this point, I plan to sell rubber stamped items like cards, scrapbook pages, brag books, wedding invitations and the like. I also make some home decor items and framed art (again, stamped/scrap type) and decorative frames, where you would just add your photo. I also do some beading. I hope to eventually make purses with changeable pics (like the ones you see made with actual magazine covers). I can make books, too. And who knows what I'll come up with later on.

    I don't want to use "stamp" in the name, as that limits me. I don't want to use "craft" in the name, as it's overused. It needs to be something unique. I am fine with using my name in the name (ha ha) since my spelling is not the most common, but I'm certainly open to any suggestions all you creative people have.

    Then, of course, I'll ask Sixstring to make a cool logo for me!

    Here are the rules for names:

    # Your username is your unique identity on Etsy.
    # Choose wisely; this cannot be changed later.
    # All users get a subdomain at Etsy, like this: http://yourname.etsy.com (when you become a seller, this will be your shop's web address.
    # Your username should not contain the word "Etsy"
    # Your username may not contain profane or racist language.

    Things to consider when choosing a shop name:

    # Choose a name that is easy to remember and spell. You want potential buyers to be able to recognize, remember, and be able to find you again, even if they have briefly visited your shop.
    # Try to limit your shop name to one or two words that flow well together. For example, “JessicasDesigns” works a thousand times better than something like “beaddesignsbyjessica.” Make sense?
    # Last but not least, your shop name should reflect your style in one way or another. If you choose a really elegant name, it would make sense to have elegant items in your shop. If you choose a quirky or clever name, it would make sense that your products reflect that style.

    ---

    I am most definitely NOT elegant. I do like a variety of styles, tho.

    I can spell, punctuate use grammar properly, but I am NOT a creative writer. This is where you come in. I hope that some of you will be able to help me out!

    I'd say fun and colorful, mostly. I don't create "shabby chic" stuff, but I do some distressed stuff. I can do elegant, especially for wedding invites, but it's not my general style. I tend to gravitate toward bold images as opposed to dainty line-drawing type stuff, tho I like some of that, too. I like lots of stuff!

    How's that for not helpful?

    How about "Stamp and Deliver" I know it's not great but when I brainstorm, I can't guarantee all of my ideas will be brilliant.

    Thanks. It popped in my head. And then the Danish Inspirations commercial popped in my head. And the the "theme song" for the SNL sketch for Lowered expetations popped in my head. My head is swimming, and pounding, and my stomach is doing flip flops and all I can think about is that stupid jingle to Lowered Expectations.

    I like ShariChic - that's a thought. I like the alliteration. But then I don't want people to think my style is shabby chic. Hmmm... The name is available!

    Keep 'em coming!

    How about getting "Cheri" in there? (means "darling"). Everybody loves french names.

    I do like Shari Chic as well.

    It's definitely a front runner, but there are no other runners at this time. LOL
