~*Whatcha workin on Wednesday only on Thursday because my life is soooo busy*~

Ok, so I have been wanting to take the plunge and open/start my own Etsy shop for some time now. I love crafting and enjoy when people love my crafts, but actually opening a physical store is just not a possibility with my busy schedule. I really admire those of you who have Etsy shops and have window shopped them many times. I decided that instead of making all these things for only myself, why not just take the plunge!!! So I am going to be opening my own shop in the very near future.
So this last week I spent some time mixing up a batch of my prim bowl fixins'. The smell in my house is incredible!!! I thought I would mix up a big batch and start getting some of my inventory up in stock so I can get going with a bang!
But I am having trouble with just what to call my Etsy shop! If you have just the right name, leave me a comment. You all have seen pretty much all the stuff I make here on my blog (you can always take a trip back in time if you need to refresh your memory). I have some new stuff kicking around in my brain that I will debut on the shop site...but you get the idea what it will be like. If I pick your name and I really like it I may even send you a bag of this delicious smelling stuff!!!
Again, I am off on another mission for the Beautification Committee for the city this morning. Hopefully, when I get home I will have time to get my interview off the VCR tape and onto a CD so I can post it here.
Have a great day!!!

Congrats on taking the plunge :) I'm sorry, I can't come up with an idea for your shop name. Sometimes that stuff jumps out at me and other times I'm clueless....

The fixings look good :)

Good luck with everything today and have a wonderful day!

I bet those prim mixins' smell mighty good! Congrats on taking the Etsy plunge! It's a lot of fun! I don't have a name idea now...I'll have to think on that.

Oooh..I bet they smell really good! Glad you decided to go for it! I'll have to think on a name...just from your post Prim Fixins came to mind, but I'll think on it!

Have a great day, Marie!

Hi Marie, First of all, I wanted to tell you that as I browsing through your pics, your post from Aug 8 totally caught my eye... your home is gorgeous! There is NOTHING like that anywhere around here (Probably not at all in western Canada!) I know I shouldn't say I'm jealous, but oops, I guess I just did! For a home like that, I'd gladly take the bats!

Good luck with your etsy plunge! If I was computer savvy enough, I would follow suit in a heartbeat! I've wanted to for a looong time, just lack the step-out-there-and-just-do-it! (Any advice from anyone out there?)

All the best to you! ...and I agree with This Country Girl, Prim Fixins sounds like it suits you!

Blessings, Kimberly
