I am making a load of 'stuff' to sell at christmas fairs (starting early...) and I want a nem to go on the labels.
It will be
crochet amigurumi animals, cakes, food
felt shape keyrings
crayon rolls and totes
fingerless gloves
soft toys in fabric and felt

and other stuff along those lines.

My first name woudl be great on it's own but unfortunately is the name of a very well known british wool company, and my surname is the same as 007 (don't want to be googlable).

Something cute and childlike please.

(I am going to try and use the fairs to see if there is interest in pre-teen craft classes so needs to fit with that if at all possible)

Cool, but can you add in my name somehow? (rowan) as it's not very common around here so would make me stick out!

The Rowan Tree
Red Rowan

or something and Rowan i.e. Topsy and Rowan Rowan and Co
Robin and Rowan

Agree with Dweezle about something and Rowan. Apparently there's only one Faber in Faber & Faber but it sounded better!

The Rowan Boat <groan>

LOL you may have a problem with trademarks with anything to do with knits or wool etc...

Rowanberry is nice

Rowanberry and Peapod


JackBauer Wed 29-Jul-09 17:42:02

eachpeach, that is what I am worried about, I daren't have Rowan on it's own...not that my little handicrafts will ever rival them, but still, don't want trades descriptions on megrin

I like Rowanberry, could become Rowanberries for classes, or is that too twee.

As an aside, I once broke a boys nose for constantly singing Row Your Boat at me...unintentionally of course.....

RowanJelly - apparently it's quite a well known dish and very yummy.

Mountain Ash?

007ed Crafts wink (would imply gluey things!

JackBauer Thu 30-Jul-09 19:13:11

Rowanjelly is grim BTW, but nice name[rgin]

I like 007ed crafts, bond theme might be an idea....

Rowans Rustic Crafts.

Rowan Tree Crafts

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Thu 30-Jul-09 19:24:48

I thought The Rowan Tree just before I came to GeeWizz's post.

GeeWhizz Thu 30-Jul-09 19:25:16

Row And Rowan

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Thu 30-Jul-09 19:25:40

or what about something with the word cottage, like Rowan's Cottage Crafts?

GeeWhizz Thu 30-Jul-09 19:29:40

Rowan Made This

Think this might fit in with more light hearted/child like

Spoo Thu 30-Jul-09 19:29:45

What about 'Row the Boat' sort of has Rowan in it.

JackBauer Thu 30-Jul-09 19:38:16

Spoo, I refer you to my post on Wed 29-Jul-09 17:42:02 grin

Am really liking Rowan Made This actually. My name just wants to turn into flowery chintzy type names and my stuff is more Aranzi Aronzo or silly things.

Spoo Thu 30-Jul-09 19:42:12

Apologies Ms Bauer didn't mean to offend. I just thought it was quite cute especially if you were making baby things. I like Rowan Made This. Its accurate!

GeeWhizz Thu 30-Jul-09 19:43:32

Do I win a prize then???

JackBauer Thu 30-Jul-09 19:53:35

Um..How about an enormouse sense of wellbeing?

Spoo, I didn't do it on purpose, I was 7 and he was really pissing me off, and I turned a bit too fast to tell him to naff off and accidentally caught him in the face with my violin case. Snap, Blood, Detention.
No-one sings that song to me <darkly>

Except DD'sgrin
