Mushrooms… And a contest

13 07 2008

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I’ve got a little something for mushrooms. I like them in all sizes:

Small
2 fat quarters of mushroom fabric

Medium
Mushroom salt and pepper shakers

Large
Still life

And extra-large
Giant mushroom at the botanical gardens in Geneva

It looks like I’m not the only one that likes them too!
Mushrooms everywhere!
(Make sure to click on this picture to make it bigger, it’s definitely worth it!)

I’ve also been thinking for a while of creating a brand name for myself, to put on tags on the things I sew. And, I’d like for it to have something to do with mushrooms. The best thing DH and I have come up so far is “Crafty Mushroom” but I don’t think it’s creative enough. That’s where you all come in, it’s time for a contest!

I’d like you to submit a crafty name that has the word mushroom in it, or even “champignon” the french word for mushroom. You’ll have until the 20th of July to give me a name in the comments. I’ll pick the one I like best and the winner will receive a box bag that I’ll make especially for them. Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with!

How about Champignon Dreams? A take on the old saying, champagne dreams on a beer budget.

I don’t suppose you’d go with “The Funny Fungus”?

Trying to go for the alliteration, of course!

I put a post up about your contest on WiKnit, my knitting contest blog

Since mushrooms give off spores to spread, like you create items to spread among your buyers, how about
Spores Galore or
Shower of ‘Shrooms –(the apostrophe is important!)
Sheltering ‘Shrooms (for the cap image of a mushroom”

Like another commenter, I think you should incorporate your blog name somehow. I immediately thought of Pink Mushroom Crafts, for what it’s worth …

Looks like you’re building your own city of mushrooms – how about Mushroom City Crafts/Crafting?

Well, if you didn’t use mushroom in the title then you could have “Valerie’s Galleries”.

I’m terrible at names, but good luck.

“Made by Mushrooms” (not that YOU are a mushroom but it was the first thing that popped into my head)

You could do a take off on “somewhere under the mushroom” and make the name ‘Under the Mushroom’……or ‘Porta-Bella’ becuase you are hoping your items are portable in that they will be carried out when they are sold! If you like the pink theme, Rosa Bella…..
hey, I tried.

Darn there are some really good ones. Darn!

Here’s what I came up with:

“Heavenly Mushrooms”
“Sewing Mushrooms”
“Mushroomstress” (as in seamstress)
“Mushroom Seamstress ”
“Spanking Mushrooms” (like Spanking New)
“Spanking New Mushrooms”
“Mushroom Sky”
“Mushroom Maniac”
“Mushroom Mania”
“Crafting Mushrooms”
“Fierce Mushroom”
“Mushroom Treasures”
“Mushroom Land”
“Made with Mushrooms”

I’ll be back if I think of anymore. Thanks for the contest, you can check me out on Ravelry if you like. Good Luck!

Since it sounds like Champion, How about “The Champignon Sewer.” Your logo could be cute… using the mushroom as a sort of cushion with a needle with some thread coming out of it
