I have to share something with you guys. In case you haven't noticed I'm not much of a genius with words, lol. One of the things I dread the most when coming up with a new product is writing a product description for my store without it sounding like "this is a hat, please buy this hat, it's pretty, and soft, and has nice texture" though I don't think my final versions are much better than that :-)
The other thing I really don't like, is to come up with meaningful color names. I can't seem to get past the basic pink, blue, red, white, yellow, etc. Which is why you're probably shaking your head when browsing my store trying to figure out what color is "lakeside" supposed to be. Please don't judge me, I like to make pretty things, not name them, lol. Perhaps it's the fact that English is not my first language, or that I have a more technical way of thinking (ever try to explain to a guy the difference between fuchsia and magenta? Yeah, he'll likely tell you they're both pink) It's not that I can't see the difference, it's that I can't seem to find the right words to describe it.
So, this long winded post is about giving you a chance to name one of my latest colors and hopefully win a hat while doing that :-)
What do you need to do?
- Go to my facebook page and find the photo of the hat below (it's shown on a cream background on Facebook).
- Write your suggestion for color name in the comments below the photo on Facebook before 9 pm PST on Thursday, March 10th, 2011, (do not write them here, as they will not count towards an entry for winning the hat). You're welcome to give several suggestions, but you will only be entered once.
I will select 3 finalists and let my daughters choose their favorite. I'll announce the winner on Friday.
I find it so hard to find good "BOY" colors, so I was thrilled when I found this! It will also be available for a Peanut Wrap, and it will be added as soon as the color name is chosen.
Have fun with this and thanks for participating!
