Andrea's whereabouts ... and a challenge

I’m coming up against my May 31 deadline for the big wedding project you’ve probably heard me mention something about. I’m pretty excited about the end results thus far, and I’ve been learning about managing a project of this scale. Basically I’ve learned that there’s no way I could make money doing something like this (unless someone wanted to pay me at least $1,000). But you can’t put a price on love, and I love my friend Shannon very much—that’s why I’m doing this project.

Here are some photos of the project, my workspace, and the progress.

Working on this project has also made me think seriously about selling some of my paper creations on Etsy. It may not work out, especially since I want to make sure I have enough creative energy to give cards and other creations as gifts, which is my favorite thing to do…

The point is that I need your help. I need a name for myself/my store on Etsy/my craft blog (which I will launch if/when I start selling things). I challenge you to come up with a clever but not obscure name. The deadline is June 1, and you’ll get a prize if I pick the name you choose for me.

Andrea,

Way to go, Andrea! You certainly have a distinct style, but I don’t know what I would call it. Naming is NOT my strength. I’m looking forward to what you come up with. xox
