What should your Avatar say about you/your business?

I have been thinking about changing my avatar for a while now. I've had the same one since I started my Etsy account in '07. It's a pic of me when I was a kid, and I didn't want my picture taken (still hate it!) but I thought I looked a little sassy in it :)

But, it doesn't really say anything about my work, and anyone seeing it would have no idea what Andi Danie Designs is or does.

So, what did you consider when you chose yours? Any suggestions of things to keep in mind when choosing my new one?

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<it says i love art and artists. and it is one of my favorite item photographs.
I picked my current one because Corgi butts are cute and make me smile.

I always use one of my magnets designs.
Mine has always been one of my Pegtales, although I sometimes change the particular doll with the seasons....they are one of the items I do which are always one of a kind...as am I:)))))
I'm using the photo of an item I'm currently selling : )

But it's nice to have more and better ideas!
I knew within my first week here that I needed an avatar. I chose the best photo of the yummiest item I sell - slutty brownies!
I always use something from my shop that is for sale. I change it up a lot as I get tired of looking at the same thing all the time :)
mine is one of my paintings currently for sale in my shop. i also used one of my paintings on my business cards as well.
Mine says "this guy may or may not be the leader of some sort of cult."
