i need a name for my business

my day was very busy and my weekend too
yesterday done 2 hour of spinning, so last week every day i did at least 2 hours of work out activities, either dancing or boot camp or yoga or spinning
feels good
whole body is sore and feels like every part of it is working
me and my husband were both busy over weekend and we both had fun:)
as i said in my previous post i did add more plates to my etsy, please check them out
also i would really appreciate if you could repost it in different locations, like your FB, sites, forums, blogs if its possible, or even if you can send the link to your friends - would be also very nice

today was running tons of different errands, applied for sales taxes permit for using it on art shows... and i need a good name for my art business ... any idea??
any suggestions??

tomorrow setting up in the gallery in Georgetown
this is the gallery

i m very excited and hopefully it will take me higher and will bring some income too!
ok my dears! hope you have a silent night and a wonderful day tomorrow

yoga and boot camp

nothing feels better than a brutal boot camp ... or actually not while screaming and doing it.. but right after its over with that feel of "yeah i have done it" and feel of sweat all over and soaking wet t shirt

and tonight more ... my favorite no less intense 1.5 hour of ashtanga yoga!!!!!! more sweat and more stretching
love it

I had an event with Mary Kay today at the gym that i go to, i had fun, got some good leads and spoke to some nice people, plus sold some products:)) not much but its a start
also had to see some strange characters in the gym:)) and also realized that some girls work their off big time, one girl came today for like 3 hours of hard core cardio!! she s got 4 kids and looks like a teenager herself :))
also realized that doing some work out and reading magazine is like doing dishes and applying make up, you cannot do those two at the same time and do them well.. you do both half a..
the day was good, my husband also spoke about me on the phone and said that he was proud of me..
makes my day
hope you had all good day too
tomorrow lots of things to do
have a good one!

today (5 days later) i got too envelops from them

my hand painted ceramic plates, mandala like ornament

I recently started painting on plates, the idea came up as a Christmas gift to my in-laws and gifts were great and everyone commented on it saying that i should make more and sale those
Anyway before selling any I really got excited and really inspired and was painting non stop and my husband is very supportive in it, he even helped me to paint the base color on the plates and go to goodwill stores and buy plates ... 
so I have painted so far about 20 plates and really like them, I will post more later or you can go and see my plates on my Etsy shop 

Another exciting news that I was called up by a girl from one of the galleries here in Austin inviting me to show a few of my plates in February, so more news on that later, but i m very excited
ok darlings please check my plates and my etsy shop and let me know what you think :))
