Okay so it’s not really my birthday. But it is the 1-year anniversary of my Etsy Shop, Honeybear Lane!!! Wanna know a little secret? This is how I came up with my name:
I sat down at my computer to join Etsy as a seller. They asked me what my login would be. I was unprepared for this part…I didn’t know what to call my shop! I wanted something that would sound cute and whimsical, something that would evoke imagery of a cozy little shop tucked in a beautiful narrow street (kinda like Diagon Alley in Harry Potter) with autumn leaves blowing around and a little shop bell ringing (now I’m thinking of “Shop Around the Corner” from You’ve Got Mail). But what?
I call my 2-year-old ‘Hunna” because that’s what my mom called me and my siblings. And we’ve always thought of him as our baby bear. So there you have it…Honeybear Lane. I have to admit I wasn’t completely in love with it, and maybe somewhere along the line I will alter it a little, but this is it for now. But at least it reminds me of my cute little boy with the squishy cheeks.
Now comes the part where I sound like one of those obnoxious used car commercials that we love to fast forward (due to the greatest invention known to mankind, yes ABOVE the wheel: DVR)
Okay seriously, check it out. I have discounted quite a few of my items and as a special bonus, I will be included a surprise gift to anyone who purchases something from my shop on my shop’s birthday, August 13th. But the discounts will last all week, until next Friday. So shop till you drop, people! Now’s your big chance to get those Christmas presents you’ve been eyeing!
