Getting Started

March 30, 2017

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.
