I get really strange looks when I tell people what my shop name is. I think it is cute and rolls off the tongue, but it has also been proven time and time again that I am not like the typical person, but I digress.
I had been thinking hard for weeks on what I wanted my shop to look like. How I wanted to brand it and carry out general business. I was going crazy trying to remember all of the hints and tips I was learning while scouring the internet. I decided to take a night off (or so I thought) to do some browsing on Amazon for wish list gifts for my 15 month old when I saw some building blocks. Then it came to me! The periodic table is the map for the building blocks of life - babies are new life - the probably most repeated song ever is the alphabet song (don't lie - you still sing it to find out what comes after K)! That's it! LMNOP! eLeMeNtOP! ahhh! elementop! How do you get more perfect than that?!
I quickly ordered the Melissa and Doug building blocks and they arrived two days later. I didn't even wait to leave the kitchen before opening them up trying to arrange them into the shape I wanted - the periodic table. The set was PERFECT. There are 55 blocks and I used all but 1. Talk about kismet.
I couldn't be more pleased with how the name and logo turned out.
What do you think? Did it make sense to you before? or only now after I explain my kooky logic?
