Starting A Small Business+ Give Away

I have been praying about starting a small business for extra money for all the things the kids want to do. I have been blessed with a machine from my mom and it will do endless things. It will cut any paper, vinyl, cardstock and the like. I have bought a program so that my computer can talk to it. It will cut letters and any design. Right now I'm going crazy making sayings to put on walls. I also have the tools to do etching on glass or mirrors.

I have met some ladies online that have the same machine and they too have blogs that show their work as well as list things for sale. So I thought if they can do it, then surely I can too. Since we will not be doing much school this summer I will have more time to get something going.

So, this is where you all come in. I have a few ideas on what to name my business, which will also be the name of my website/blog. This is what I have so far:

Lyrical Letters (This is my favorite)
Del Dolche Designs (Which is Italian for Sweet Designs. I'm a sucker for anything Italian)

I really like the idea of alliteration, which is using the same letter for different words like I did with Lyrical Letters and Del Dolche Designs. Tell me what you all think and if you have any more great name ideas, please share them with me. This seems to be the hardest thing because it says who you are and it stays with you for life. If I choose your idea, then you will get free wall art from me. So spread the word and help me get started.

Love to all

Yes, Susan I can do that to plates. Right now, I can do any solid color and add anything that you want. I will posting pics later of what I can do. Anything with vinyl or paper. Thanks for your comment.
