no, not my REAL name - but my etsy shop name. for a while now, i've been kicking around the idea of renaming my store. while sweet and cute, "muffintopdesigns" probably fit me when i was making bright beaded jewelry and sewing sock monkeys, but, alas, i no longer do that. (seriously, i barely ever touch my beads anymore. sigh.) one of the biggest reasons that i haven't done that - and honestly, probably the ONLY one - is because i didn't want to have to give up my sales stats and feedback to start a brand new shop, which was the only way i would have been able to do it before. (and admittedly, i think it's kind of neat that people refer to me as "muffin".)
but now, etsy has made it possible for me to change my shop name, while redirecting my old URL to my storefront. it's all outlined in this article here, and i'm kind of excited. (sidenote - of course i just ordered 500 business cards from vistaprint, isn't that always the way it goes?) so i have about a week to think about whether or not i want to change things up, or let them remain the same.
not that i'm a lemming, but i would love your honest feedback about whether or not a name change would be good. i'm really torn and could use some insight. i would be changing it to some variant of my real name or something along the lines of "solder & flux designs" (as long as it isn't taken).
