Look, look, look what I got

No more leaning over the table, my elbows and forearms pressed into the surface as I concentrate (I have actually bruised myself by pressing too hard in while I was working on some intricate detail before. If I put my mind to it I can focus that hard on something, spooky eh?).

I've gotten all professional like and actually gotten myself an easel.

It was rather fun to put together as the instructions were printed on the stapled cardboard and were harder to read than the Dead Sea scrolls and less intact. But after a few false starts we got it all together and I promptly felt I had to whip out a painting to christen this bad boy. I guess this means that this painting thing is quickly becoming a serious hobby. So serious in fact that I am seriously considering opening up an Etsy store (serioulsy) if only to get rid of some of the back clutter.

The only problem is that now I need to think of a name for said store. "Introverted Wife's Paint and Gloss emporium" just doesn't have quite the right ring to it I fear. I could call it "Acrylic Central: Here for all your acrylic needs" but that sounds too much like a hardware store.

If anyone out there has their own etsy store, I'd love all the advice you have. And really if anyone has a good idea for a name of the store I'll be forever in your debt.

In fact, maybe I'll trade your own special painting for a name. If anyone can come up with a great name for my store then I'll paint you whatever your little heart desires. And in whatever color too.

I'm open to just about any name really, as long as its cool, funny, and awesome.

I hope I didn't make it too much of a challenge.

How about: "This hobby has gotten way out of control and something must go!"

Or maybe "My husband will only deal with all this stuff for a short time, so I'm selling it!"

Actually it's more like "My husband likes it as it gives him an excuse to spend hours killing things on the PS3"

Love the easel.
I can't think of a name right now. If I do I'll let you know.
