Business Thoughts So Far

As I thought about getting business cards, it became clear that I needed to think about several things.

The first of these was what kinds of work have I done in the past or currently am doing.   Followed very closely by what do I want to do in the future.     So in thinking back, I've done the following in the past - recovered sofa cushions and pillows, made new pillows and pillow covers, t-shirt quilts, t-shirt pillows, custom designed quilts, memory quilts, redone the cover for an antique baby carraige, custom fit leather knife sheaths, baby bibs, scrub tops, and a couple of bridesmaid/flower girl dresses.   I'm sure there were other things along the way as well, I just don't remember what they are.

For the future, I've decided that any of that or similar work is fine with me with the one exception being I won't do anymore bridesmaid dresses or similar work....actually decided that a very long time ago!   lol, it is just too big of a headache and too little return for the work.

I also would like whatever business name I select to cover my quilt/pattern designing because I intend to do my best to also grow that part of my business (meaning actually selling my patterns, not just drawing them up!).   And I'd like to be able to have it separate from where I do my normal blogging and FB activities.

Some of the thoughts I've had, or that have been suggested include -

  • Designs by Moira
  • A Stitch in Time (suggested by an online friend)
  • Creations by Moira
  • Timely Creations
Anyone have any other ideas for possible business names?

Gratitudes:

1. Some of the bloodwork results came out good, others didn't show anything so it's more tests ahead.

2. The weather is getting cooler, fall really is here!  =)

Tonight, my brain is empty of suggestions. Maybe that will change if I get to sleep a long time! I don't know which would be worse - making a Barbie dress or making a bridesmaid dress! I'd prefer not to do either one ever!

Katie and I seem to be on the same track ... I was going to suggest Moira Made It.
