Mama's taking the plunge! And a giveaway!!

Nope, not me, I'm not plunging anything.

{Well I plunged the toliet last week after dash-2 unrolled a crap ton of toilet paper for no apparent reason.}

My mother is finally setting up an esty store! I'm very excited for her and it's certainly about time.

She's made some really cute quilted stuff for me, a couple of purses/handbags, some beautiful service stars, and even more bags out the wazoo.

And all these kinda things will be in her store!


{There is always a but isnt there?}

She needs a name. Crafting, sewing, quilting, these things come second nature to my mother. Witty names? Not so much. So I turn to you all.

So help me help her come up with a name would you please?

And you could win a set of these puppies!{In case you can't tell they aren't really puppies, they are three bags.}

So to enter here go the rules....
for one entry, leave your suggestion for a cute or clever {or cute AND clever} store name
for TWO additional entries blog about this on your blog so that even more people will {hopefully} come by and leave suggestions
and finally
for another TWO entries tweet about this post {and now I can check up on you peeps cause remember I'm on twitter!}

and please, leave a seperate comment for each entry. Its so much easier.

This giveaway/contest will be open until Friday Feb 25! So get thinking people!

Really, please, my mom keeps asking me for ideas and I got nothing.


  1. I don't have a clever name...yet. I'll have to think about it and get back to you.

    I wanted to get back with you and tell you/her that I love the green.

    I also love the blue bags made by your Mama that I already have!!! Thanks so much! I know the winner that gets them will love them.

  3. Going to have to think on the clever name thing (heck, mine came from a photo of my cat's paws! LOL). But in the meantime, I retweeted your tweet. :)

  4. how about "big mama's threads"

    also, you need to get some new comment software. echo or something would be a huge improvement over the blogger comments.

  5. I'm still working on a clever name; meanwhile, I tweeted about the giveaway. Yay for your mom!

  6. I'm not as witty as I would like, but I just wanted to say those bags are adorable and congrats to your mom for opening up her own etsy store! That is wonderful!

  7. I'm SO not creative, so I can't help you on the name, BUT when she opens your store, please let me know, I would love to buy one of her service star's.

  8. Yea!!!! I want to shop there!

    Just have her name it "I have to do something to keep myself sane while my daughter is slowly going insane".

    Oh wait, that's my life!

  9. connecting threads

    thats all i can come up sorry its not more clever but thats all i got right now sorry!

  10. What about "Sew Crafty" like sooo crafty. Sorry it's all I can come up with. :)

  11. OH MY GOSH! YAY! I'm sorry but I have absolutely no witty names for you. Once her store officially opens please make a huge announcement so I can go buy a few things. =)

  12. Sew Much Love

    I don't know...I'm at a loss!

    The bags are super cute. Loved that quilt she brought by yesterday-the black and white one!

  13. I LOVE Your moms bags LOVE THEM

  15. Stitches & Seams.

    Can't believe she finally agreed. I worked on her a little bit last time I saw her but she was still pretty reluctant then. So glad she's doing it!

  16. Sew-l Sister
    Sew Much Love
    Sew and Serve
    Stitch, Sew, Serve

    Or, my favorite...
    Still Stitchin', Still Bitchin'

  17. Stitch in Time or Stitch on my side

  18. Oh and you could use her first name and it could be XXXX and Stitch (like Lilo and Stitch)

    @ Casey---still stitchin, still bitchin is my fav....

  19. Just testing out your comment thingy...dunno how it works yet. :) I'll figure it out.
