Overwhelmed!

Hey!  I think you guys like layer cakes.  I am so glad that you are excited!  To those of you who could not comment, I am so sorry.  Please feel free to e-mail me (thequiltedfish@gmail.com) and I will be happy to enter you in the give away.  I am guessing that the system was as overwhelmed (with joy) as me!

Wednesdays are one of my favorite days.  I have a sweet lady that takes care of my kids on Wednesdays for a few hours.  Today me and my bff went shopping and to lunch and shopping so more.  We even worked on fun stuff for my new booth for market.  Can you believe fall market is just over 100 days away?  I can’t.  We stopped at one of my favorite stores, T J Maxx.  I love to hunt for a bargain.  Not to mention that it is a great place to find fish…

I am happy to welcome this fish home to the “Maison de Poisson” (house of fish).  He will be happy here.  Especially because he is going to be filled with mommy-only treats.  Not sure what that is yet, but probably some buttered popcorn jelly bellys, maybe some peanut M & M’s, and some Lindor truffles.  Mmmm…..  Any ideas what I should name him?  And yes, it is a him.  Don’t know why, but it is. 

I have another question for you.  We are in the process of getting a website (YEAH!!!) and I am having a problem with my domain name.  The name that I want (the obvious one) is taken.  So I need to come up with something super great to use instead. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share.  If I like one enough to use it, I will send you a special surprise.  Not sure what it will be, but I am sure it will include something that rhymes with schmabric and something that rhymes with schmatterns.  Trust me, it will be good.  (I do love to give stuff away.)  Get those brains working.  I am waiting…..

Hmmm, names are not my specialty, but it seems like if you can throw words like, "bliss" "Haven" "Charm" or stuff like that, it usually does well. Just throw a bunch of words you like into a hat (or a fish that holds goodies) and draw out two or three. If they work together, great, if not, start over.
Have fun, and be sure to let us know.

Is it just The Quilted Fish that's taken? If so I would add something to it like thequiltedfishpatterns.com or do just quiltedfish.com. Something to help people find you easily, especially if they don't have it written right in front of them. That way if they google it it will come up and they will realize right away that it's you.

I was thinking the same thing as the previous commenter - did you check "aquiltedfish" or just "quiltedfish" or "quiltedfishes" or "myquiltedfish" or "quiltedfishquilts" or even "quiltfish". You could play around with the name you like - but just mix it up a little? Good luck - it would be great to stick with the name you like!

i agree with the last two posts, try adding a pattern co. or and friends, your quilted fish is obviously personal, and identifies you as YOU. hug a ...quilted fish
kiss a ...quilted fish. just expand it, it will be great if it is YOU that comes up with the new name!
