Anyway - this is a jewelry group - they do blog carnivals.
We pick a subject & post on it & link to everyone ...
So here is my first.
My business name - where did it come from?
Well many moons ago .. tee hee .. not really but several years back I was a stay at home momma & started painting. I laugh now at some of the first things I painted .. yuck! But I became very good & sold my painted items on eBay. I loved doing this. I had my own little desk & everything. I never made much money at it - enough to keep doing what I loved.
But back to why.
I had to have a name for my eBay account ... I wanted cute & catchy but I am NOT creative in that way at all. So I played with it until I just said ok ...
So I was 'Paintin' - my best southern english.
'By' - well ....
'Faith' - my middle name, what I hold onto all the time! You have to have FAITH!
So when I started making jewelry. I tried to come up with a new name. I even had one.
SassaLou's Bijou - when I was lil' they called me Sassa Lou.
But I have so many online friends that know me as PaintinByFaith - so I hated to change.
Now that I have kind of found my own style ... I see it as using small pieces of metal as my canvas - like I am using metal like paint. Making a piece of art. So it works!
Be sure to stop by some of my friends blogs & see how they came up with their name!
