i have been, on more than a few occasions, asked where or how i came up with the name of my business. there is in fact a story, or a sort of brainstorm behind it. and here it is:
i wanted something that would be unique, not boring, but simple and easy to remember. when we moved out here... to the plains of colorado...i found my creative juices had kicked into full gear! my mind was bursting with new ideas, new motivation and inspiration. it was marvelous because i had never felt such a renaissance of creativity. i have always made jewlery and cards and scrapbooked. i had even sewn a bit here and there, but now i had the desire to go to new extremes and push myself to do more. i had toyed with the idea of selling my goods, and had to friends, but never in a formal setting, such as a store or website. so, one day whilst sitting at my computer, surrounded by my creative mess of beads and paper and fabric i had an epiphany. let me quickly say that stephan and i have moved - A LOT. even before i married stephan i moved - A LOT. from one state to the next. one group of friends and family to the next group, and so on. and now i had landed on the plains, in my favorite state, colorado. i was, in essence, tumbleweed. ah ha. but not just a brown shriveled up piece of broken tumbleweed. no. a dreamy shade of pink tumbleweed. like the color of blushing cheeks, barbie's lips, rose petals, or the frosting on all my childhood birthday cakes! this wandering girls favorite color - PINK!!! hence, pink tumbleweed. a name that fits me perfectly and now you know why.
oh, and i am so thankful for all of the lovely comments left for my post yesterday. they made my cheeks turn that unique shade of ...... pink! thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
