I have been trying to come up with a name for the crafts I do because eventually I may start up an Etsy shop or something like that. Most of the names I've come up with aren't very clever and when I do an Internet search, sure enough, they've been used by others. I came up with one that I thought wouldn't be taken and it was, darn it. It was Hodge Podge Lodge. Cute, eh? Apparently that was also the name of a television show back in the day. I was trying to come up with something that isn't too weird so that it appears to the "normals" but that also reflects my darker personality and some of the darker crafts I may do.
Well, apparently my darker side just can't be covered up because I came up with a name and after searching the Internet, it appears that no one has used this. I have no idea how they haven't because I think it could be an obvious name. As of right now, the name I'm really digging for my crafts is "Crafts from the Crypt". Get it? Perfect, right? My dwelling can be crypt-like and it fits my personality. So none of you better take this because I'll come after you! Muwahaha! Seriously, I'm not joking people. I plan on designing business cards and I'll have a little coffin to keep them in. : )
Obviously this isn't a name that appeals to the normals so I'll be saving this for craft shows that aren't in conservative areas and my online endeavors.
Good news! In a recent post I talked about my segue into crocheting. Apparently I just can't learn stuff like this from books because I watched a two minute YouTube video and tada...I can crochet! Now that there is less than two weeks until my first craft show, I need to focus on the other things that I'm making. I plan on crocheting for the September show though. Yay! I should have some pics of my current crafts by this weekend.
