Fun for Mama

I really didn't think I would do this (again) but I have the chance to sell (just a few) of my handmade items in a little shop in Munford, TN. I am meeting with the owner next week, and we agreed together that I would provide some items, but I wouldn't be under any pressure to provide a high rate of product. Since I pretty much give away what i make, I will be throwing together a few cute pieces this weekend to bring in to Amy, so we can decide together what will work best in her store.

So - this is where you come in.

Some of may know (or remember, God love you) that Mark and I had a little shop in Wilmington, NC while we lived there. Mark made jewelry, I made clothes, and we even had Greatful Dead tie dyed t-shirts for sale. This little place had the uber-cool name of:

InnerSoul Creations

ARGH!! I can't believe I just publicly admitted that. We were 19. Now...I really need your help to come up with a name for my items. I dont really see the need for this, but Mark thinks its imperative. The two that are in the running at the moment are:

Mimi's Closet
Sweet Mylissa's

Both of these have meaning in my life - my father used to name stuff Sweet Mylissa after me - once a big shiny red dump truck and another time a big boat that started on fire. Confession time! And a precious little girl who I loved dearly while she was little used to call me Mimi. I practiced most of my mothering on this little one, since I didn't have my own yet, and I still love her dearly.

Ok - vote away, or help me with a better name!!

I have to go with Sweet Mylissa's. I think Mimi sounds a little old - and you are so young and hip. :)

Excited to see what you come up with Sweet Mylissa!

Always here praying!
Psalms 18:2-6 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
