Loreen Pitchford
I'm afraid I wasn't as original as  many others but I simply continued to use the name of my studio since I've been selling and teaching art from here for some time. I also had the name established across social media - I've read it's good practice to keep the continuity across media outlets😊.

Kim Orcutt
We lived in a valley in NY and at the time the name was for a gift shoppe in our house. I was selling primitive items. The name was Valley Primitives Gift Shoppe. It's now Valley Primitives Stitches because I am now only selling hand stitched items with an old, primitive feel.  

Denise Cassidy Bailey
When I first started out crafting for craft shows in our area, I had piles and piles of items.  My daughters started calling me a 'crazy craft lady'.  When I found that primitives didn't sell well here (Pittsburgh) , I decided to try to sell on eBay.  At the time, I did not have a shop/ shop name, I just did listings.
When I ventured online I did some searches and found Prim Mart.  I needed a log in name and decided to go with crazy craft lady, but changed the C's to K's.  Thus....Krazy Kraft Lady.  I then started a blog and called that ' The Krazy Kraft Lady'.
Eventually I did open a shop on eBay and I needed a name so I abbreviated my name and added Primitives.

Kathy Hale Cage
How did my shop get it's name? I have an introverted personality and ever since I was a child and also as an adult I have felt nearly invisible at times and that people could not see or understand my motivations ... they couldn't see my "heart" ... Some how I have not been good at conveying that ... That's where the name Kathy's Heart came from ... my way of allowing people to see who I am and what matters to me ... my faith and a simple, warm, unsophisticated life ... thus Kathy's Heart Creations ... I have a simple, warm, cozy, homespun, cottage, farmhouse feel in all the things that I make. ...

Wendy Marro
The house I grew up in was next to the woods 
that had a little creek flowing through it!  

Tara Sharan Hensley
It took me several days and a lot of brainstorming but I finally thought , "well my home is rustic" so I came up with The Rustic Home but that was taken so I added Company on the end.  TheRusticHomeCompany

Darla Walk (one of our co-leaders)
My shop name is Harriet Stash.    Harriet was my grandmothers name. Her picture is on my Creation table.... Stash is the "stash in Harriets attic. I have had other names.... always thinking it is the key but let me tell you. I have got rid of other thoughts. this is my shop name... I use it with pride. I loved my Grandmother.
