Welcome!

This blog is now exclusively devoted to crafting in general, and the shop in particular! Pretty much all of my personal content has been moved to a new blog, one that is intended primarily to help keep our family and friends in the loop. (If you are interested in following the new blog, you will find it here.) This blog will continue to feature shop news, new listings, sales, giveaways, and all of my share-worthy crafting exploits.

I'm Finally Doing a Give-Away!

I am thinking that perhaps, I need a new name for my "business". Currently, I am using 'Designs by Adie International', and at the time I came up with it, I thought it was great. I was going for elegant and sophisticated. But, now, I'm afraid it just sounds pretentious. But, I'm stumped. So, I'm looking for a vote: keep what I have?? Or, go with something new and fresh? Whichever you vote for, leave it as a comment. If your vote is for "new and fresh", give me a suggestion (or two). If I choose your suggestion, you'll win a custom made jewelry item by Yours Truly! If I decide not to change anything, then I will do a random drawing for the winner. Either way, you have to tell me what you think in order to win! I'll leave this open for one week, and announce the winner next Tuesday morning.

And, in case you're wondering, Yes. Yes, I am shamelessly bribing you to help me figure out what to do. Thank you for helping!

Hhhmmm. Isn't it fun figuring out all the exciting planning stuff? So empowering!

You could go with International Adie. I think that's not pretentious and it's kind of cute. Or you could call your jewelry business "The Green World", and then change your blog to "The Green Word", so it's obvious that they go together. I myself am a fan of the word play.

Good luck!

New thought: What about Siren Accessories? You know, 'cause my e-mail is "callmecirce" and Circe was the witch in The Oddessy, and the Sirens were in The Oddessy...

ok. Just a thought. I still want all your ideas!!! Thanks for posting Jenny!!

Adie Made... darling and simple

i like the use of Siren... Siren String(s)... I like the imagery of using beading techniques, it would make for a cute swirly logo... Wired by Adie, Adorn by Adie...

Independent Adie aka Indie Adie

I think starting fresh is best, 2/3 words max, something visual will stand out more...

KD Designs said...

Sorry girl. I have no good suggestions. I'm KD Designs which is short for Kelly's Digital Designs. Whew! Wasn't that creative!?! You could be A (Adie's) J (jewelry) Designs but I wouldn't really recommend it! If you want to use siren I really like Kara's suggestion for Siren Strings. Or you could be Beads of Furies, but then that just makes you sound angry!

I am like Kelly, Just no good at this. I like Kara's idea or maybe Adie's Jewels....Adie's Gems
