"Create a Name for My New Card Shop" Challenge

Here is a small sample of some of my handmade greeting cards. As you can see my designing style is eclectic, just like my jewelry designs.

I have really been enjoying making cards and have been selling them at fairs and also to local customers and friends.

Since I love doing this so much I have decided to open an online card shop. However, right now I am a bit creatively blocked about a name--want it short and sweet.

With this in mind I'm making "creating a name for my new card shop" a guild challenge. I figure that with all you creative artisans I will have a nice selection of names to think about.

And yes, there will be a reward for the shop that comes up with a name that I feel connected to.

I am offering a nice selection of vintage beads or this bracelet :

Swarovski light amethyst crystals, purple cat eye beads, and sterling silver Bali toggle closure.

It is for sale in my Beadlady5 studio--here is the link for all the details:
So now you have it:

You can post as many names as you'd like until April 30th. That's the deadline and I will need a few days to make my pick.

Any questions??? Just contact me through one of my studios:

Let's get those thinking caps on...

Looking forward to your creative picks...



  1. Am in anticipation of your creative thoughts.
    Tally Ho, and away you go...

  2. Just off the top of my head....
    MargosPaperazzi or Lady Paperazzi or PapperazziCards or just plain Paperazzi..after all, each one is a star! :-)

  3. "The special Occation shop"
    "The personal touch"

  4. Why not Eclectic Cards? :-) Too simple, obvious?

  5. I like Electic Cards too, but if your looking for branding, might make it BeadLady 5 Designs Cards (Plus) and add plus or something if you go into other items. Too long?

  6. Oh, I can't think of any name, but I just wanted to let you know that the cards are amazing! Excellent work, I absolutely love them.

  7. I love the suggestions made already. Just wanted you to know that the cards are lovely & I wish you much success & sales.

  8. Even though your work is eclectic, I love it. If I were shopping for cards, to me these are my idea of dream cards, rich, lovely and perfect. With that in mind, how about Margo's Dream Cards?

  9. Love your cards!

    This is what my brainstorming came up with ...
