I love this idea...I always love new ways to store spices!

A quick a word of caution... spices go bad more quickly in warm spaces (like near an appliance) so make sure you are using them up quickly if stored in a space like this.  It should not be a problem for stuff you use often, but make sure to store your extra spices (if you buy in bulk) in a dry, cool, dark space(like a freezer!)

You guys have great advise (and funny discussions when I am not around!) 

I changed it (going against some of the advise both here and other places) to a different name that means a lot to me, but is rather, well, different.  I think it will work, though. I have a lot of ideas, but need to get a lot more product made before I can sell it.  I am afraid to post my stuff yet...I am too new here and need to learn to much before I bother people with my stuff.

Thanks again...you have been a huge help (as has this whole board.)

44  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Name and business idea on: January 15, 2008 10:36:54 AM
I know that there are a thousand people out there that want to start their own business.  I am not an original.  But...I still want to try.  I make cards, tags and small journals.  My focus is mostly papercrafts with stamping and handmade orginal watercolors.

My two questions:
1) Am I crazy to think anyone would want to see yet another handmade card?  I was thinking of starting on Etsy, but there is just so much out there.

2) I need a name.  I do not want to use my name in the business name.  I want a name that is simple, does not alude to just cards (so I can branch out if needed) but is not to trendy.  I was thinking of "Pumpkin Pie Designs"  It has a lot of personal meaning to me and seems simple, not too trendy, but does not alude to my cards at all.  I could make BC and brochures that show what I do...would that help.

I am new to this, but have some nice products and want some help getting started.  This site is wonderful, and I know all of you will be a huge help.  Tell me the truth...am I crazy (well, about this...not life in general.)?

I would love help with a name. I am trying to get started with some handmade cards...lots of fun papers and colors.  Some hand-watercolors, some with stamps, and I also want to be able to branch off into tags, journals and the like...all paper crafts.  Possibly even some scrapbooked stuff.  Ideas???

I am new to this forum...I have been lurking a while, but just decided to join.  I have recently (as in two days ago Grin ) started scrapbooking some pages.  I have done handmade cards for a while, and I do a lot of invites for friends, but this week did my first true scrapbook page.  I am pretty happy...a good fir for me (my three huge loves in crafting are photography, color and paper.  And I wonder why it took me so long.

Anyway, just wanted to get started with a post. I see a lot of amazing stuff here and though, since I was so new to it, I would start in this forum.
