I did this forum a while back, but I loved learning about everyone so I thought I would start it up again.

Do you know who you are, or are you having trouble figuring out an identity for your shop? Knowing the answers can help you stand out from your competition. A simple way is to ask yourself these 3 questions...
1. Who are you?
2. What do you do?
3. Why is that important?

I'll go first
1. Tamara, owner of TP Design
2. I create home decor and other handmade goods
3. I want to create things that help people to connect to the world around them and inspire them to look at things in a new light.

Your turn. What are your answers...

I hope to sell one day and have no idea how to portray my shop. All I know, is that my PussDaddy avatar stays, lol.

2. I create bags for niches that need to be filled, or at least expanded.
3. I like it when things are HANDY and PRACTICAL, not just attractive...but I try to create products that are all three!

Great post!

1. Who are you? susan
2. What do you do? way too many things!
3. Why is that important? whatever i do it always crosses over into everything else!

so, no, i don't know who i am ;) i would really like to do one or two techniques with my jewelry but i can't. i play with metal, felt, seed beads and a few other things. i can't force myself to narrow the focus.

Great thread!

1. I'm Jaime. Owner of Stink Bone Jones Boutique.
2. I created handpainted onesies/shirts as well as paper items.
3. I want to provide items for moms that want cool and very different designs for their babies/toddlers to wear. It makes a mom smile to dress her little one in something that she knows noone else has. I know because I'm a mom.
