Hello! I am about to launch my handmade craft business and I need a name!!. I make wooden signs and door hanger, painted chargers. Also, farmhouse style home decor, keychains, wooden shelves, and vinyl wedding accessories and gifts. I use reclaimed barn lumber whenever possible in my pieces and I will be offering the option to personalize every piece to give the customer the option to make each piece unique to their story. I also feel like personalization gives the piece more class and kicks it up to "chic" or "high_end" quality. My business is about newly found creativity at age 40. My career was a Certified Medical Assistant which is not very creative at all. My 2 wonderful daughters and 2 older brothers had the artistic talent to show. I had the voice I guess. I left my job in 2018 and became a stay-at-home mom for the senior years of youngest 2 children. Unfortunately, their senior years coincided with Covid. During the first year I found farmhouse DIY crafting. I started small and began to teach myself, and now here I am about 2 years later ready to launch a business online. I have also experienced the hardest 2 years of my life personally, and I am stronger because of the experience, and if given the opportunity I would love to encourage other woman to spread their wings and explore new things to see what other interests they may have they don't know about. Interests, like crafting for me, that can help with anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, and even empty nest syndrome that is upon me now. I hope to always be a very personable brand, that my customers know they can reach our to me and not feel intimidated. Custom, personalized, unique.....all words I would like to be used to describe my business. My target audience would be women aged 20-55. Women who are shopping for a gift for their daughter's wedding and they want something unique and something they can customize. Even the bride for custom party favors .Women often pick out the gifts and they like sentimental and they like to leave a message. I want my pieces tell a story for the customer, I would like the name to be cute, but classy. Something witty that says what I do without actually saying it. Also I love butterflies and bees and wouldn't mind having one in my logo somehow., maybe referenced somehow so the butterfly or bee would make sense? I don't like names that are cartoony or corny like HandyMandy Design. DreamyCraft. VistaNook?
I thought it might be helpful to share some names with you that I brainstormed myself and did not decide to use for one of various reasons. Some weren't available as a .com domain, some did not alot for social media handles, etc. Some were too similar to competitor's names after doing a Google search. Whatever the reason I didn't use the name, however, these are names were accurate in telling the story of my business.
Creative Reflections - I will offer customization for clients which often is chosen to celebrate an event or accomplishment and "look back" on said event, or "reflect".
Unique By Design - I encourage uniqueness in every aspect of life, and my pieces are handmade and unique. Also, I love bees and butterflies, so I had planned to incorporate a butterfly into my logo for their unique designs and beautiful colors on their wings. Each is designed unique. And the "B" in "By" I thought could be a butterfly instead of plain text in the logo.
-Moments to Memories - Taking customer's captured moments "photos" and making memories.
