This is the first giveaway that I've done on my blog, largely because I do not have a lot of readers.  This means your chances of winning are HIGH.  I have about 20 people stop by this blog every day, and many of them are regular readers.  So you should seriously enter, because your chances are GOOD.

Here's the deal:

I'm opening an Etsy shop this winter.  This is something I've wanted to do for the past couple of years, but just haven't had the motivation or follow-through to really accomplish such a thing.  I'm not going to go into all the things I'll be selling as of yet, because I am just getting started.  One of the first things I'll need is a NAME.  That's where you come in!

I'm looking for name ideas for my Etsy site.  So far I've thought up "Just Maybe Designs", as a play on my nickname, Jess(ica) May B or JessMayBe.  Bryan has thought of "Along the Wire" and we both thought up "Between the Trees" together.

My requests are the following:  the name does not allude to any religious belief (which means it can't include my last name, Lords) or political party.  It's not overly cutesy. That's it.

I'm just looking for ideas.  The winner will be chosen at random.  There's a potential there may be TWO winners; if I use your name (with your permission of course), or a close variation of it, you'll receive a prize as well!

The prize(s) is a handmade crocheted beanie, just in time for fall!  Here is a sample of the hats I make:

You can choose from the colors pictured, as well as a dark plum or navy blue.  The two available styles are as shown:  the cream is the more open-style Daphne and the raspberry and dark olive are my Josie style.

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment with a name suggestion.  You can enter as many times as you want.  Just make sure that you sign in with your email, or leave it in the body of your comment if you comment as anonymous.  This giveaway ends on the 11th at 8pm.  Winner will be announced the morning of the 12th and will be contacted by email.

Thanks in advance for the ideas!


  1. Call it The Wild And Free Democrats!!!

    I'm just kidding. Don't ever call it that.

    Moving on: those hats are really pretty! I want one....I've never thought of company names before, but here are some ones that seemed like fun:

    Ställa - It's Swedish for "create". I figured since your family history is Swedish it'd be kind of cool.

    Teton Treasures


    October Blue

  2. Ställa is suuuuper cute! I wish it could be done without the umlaut (and still pronounce it the same), since it would have to be a part of the web address. It's beautiful though!!

    Thanks so much for the ideas!

  3. I guess Im just not that great at these kinda things....
