After many years of setting up and taking down my display and my work at craft shows, I finally decided enough already. It's a hard life - hard on you physically I mean. I love doing the craft shows and interacting with the people. In the last few years I have stopped doing one day shows and concentrated on longer shows, so the setups were not as many.
I am changing gears and going from a pure creator to a supplier and creator. Yes I will still make my beaded pieces and do a couple of local craft shows but I want to pass on all that I have learned to others (especially the next generation) and get people started with the right tools.
I am starting a new business venture - and how do you do that ... wellllll.......
I of course started with the important stuff - the name and the logo. I guess that's not exactly true - I started by deciding I wanted to open a bead store. Now financially a brick and mortar are currently out of the question but online can be a great place to start and build the finances and inventory I need. So back to the name - I wanted something that represented me and was punny.
So here it is. I've always been told a good company name let's your audience know what the business is about and I think this pretty much tells everyone what I'm doing.
Now I know you are asking - why an owl. I've collected owls since I was a little girl. I have an owl checkbook cover, owl clothes, jewelry even owl wastebaskets and sheets.
Plus ... you have to admit - it's kind of cute.
Next up I contacted a friend of mine and asked her to come up with a icon for me and she came up with a great one.
Originally I thought the owl should be holding a needle and thread with some beads on it but I think the owl with the crystal eyes and crystals in it's body is just adorable.
So now that I've got the important stuff out of the way I guess I need to concentrate on the legal stuff.
Till next time.
