Etsy Shop & Contest

*I've changed the date of this post so that it will stay at the top of my blog until the contest is over. Scroll down to see new posts.*
I've decided to open an Etsy shop, and need some ideas for a name for my shop. My current Etsy account is simplesticher - in case you didn't catch it, I left out the second 't' in stitcher.
I'm planning to sell beaded items; bookmarks, earrings, knitting markers, and anything else that strikes my fancy.

So, if you have an idea for a name for my shop, leave it in the comments. If I choose your title, I'll send you the cross stitch pictured on the left. If I don't like any of the titles, I'll pick a random commenter to send it to.
The I will close the contest in 2 weeks, on Saturday, April 12.

Some random info about myself that may help you think up a title: :)
Besides crafting, I love gardening, reading, and playing the piano.
I love cats and butterflies, and tolerate dogs.

I generally have 10-20 or so projects going at once. (Please note that they are not all the same type of project- for example, there may be 4 cross stitch, 2 or 3 knitting, embroidery, quilling, tatting, and a couple sewing projects)

My favorite colors are purple in shades of lavender and lilac, and pale yellow.

My favorite stuffed animals are seals. I have 14, plus 4 miniature seals made of various materials.

I have a large collection of candles, and a few oil lamps. I like to use them during the winter - it helps cheer up gloomy days.

I hope all this helps a little in thinking up names for my new Etsy shop.
Have fun!

hmm...what about something with 'garden' in it? Like Garden Gate Creations or Over the Garden Gate? Or something to do with music. . .Stitching Melodies? Seamingly Harmonious? (play with the word 'seem' haha) Ok, I'll stop for now. LOL
