The drama and angst have ended!
Last night, a blazing comet appeared in the sky and landed in a streak of light right in my backyard, giving me the answers to all of my questions. Well, not quite, but it kind of felt that way when I decided on the following name for my on-line Etsy boutique:
FaerieKat’s Trinkets and Treasures
I’ve always referred to my creations as treasures, my Grandfather’s nickname for me is “Trinket” and that is what my Grandmother still calls me, and there’s some lovely alliteration. Everything suddenly felt right as I played with graphics for a shop banner. By morning, my decision was made.
I added the tag line “Enchanting Jewelry and Magical Items” and hit Google Adwords. After consulting with the electronic guru, I changed it to “Enchanted Jewelry Creations and Magical Objects,” which when combined with “FaerieKat’s Trinkets and Treasures” creates a very decent amount of adword combinations.
So my Etsy shop has been modified, I have the new domain, http://www.faeriekat.com, for when I don’t want to use http://www.etsy.com/shop/FaerieKat, and I have a new email account to match. The only big change left is my FaceBook artist page; I’ve changed the logo, but cannot change the name until I have less than 100 fans. I’m offering a $30 coupon to get my fans to “unlike” and then re-“like” me after I change the name, so if you are one of my fans, please go “unlike” me—you’ll really be helping me out!
