Squirrellyartmama evolved because I wanted to share my many different styles of art with everyone. To do that I first had to come up with a domain name.
I was trying to figure out a catchy name that was fun and creative. I wanted something that represented where I live, my journey, what I love, and love to do.
I was sitting outside watching a squirrel run across the fence and started to think of the movie UP. Remember Doug the dog? He would talk and get distracted and would say "Squirrel". I started to laugh and thought I love squirrels and that dog. I use that reference often when people go from one topic to another. "Squirrel" haha!
Its funny, I use to watch the chickens back home in Hawaii, now I am watching squirrels. Haha!
Then there is art...I love talking crafts with others. Learning new ways to be creative. I have been fun trying to find new ways to be creative. I have done many craft fairs in the past but with the big move from Hawaii to PNW I wanted to change up a few things.
So this year I challenged myself to paint daily and create different types of art. And if you see my art you can tell that I am all over the place with it. But I am loving the process, and isn't that what art is all about?
I love arts and crafts so I would make cards, paper mache', play with clay, and it just goes on from there.
And as for mama...I just figured since I am a mother, why not. Of course to be different I used that spelling....so there you have it.
When I was putting together the name Squirrellyartmama I called a friend and left her a message, "When you here Squirrellyartmama, what comes to mind?" ok she thought I was nuts....haha no pun intended.
Of course after leaving her a message I sent her a couple of funny squirrely youtube songs related to squirrels, and squirrely....I was cracking up when I sent her this. Of course I got the response of WTH are you doing now...hahaha...
After explaining everything to her...the main thing I noticed is she just laughed. The name did just what I wanted it to do, make people smile.
Can I see it as a brand name? Yes I think so.
Is it a fun name? I think so.
Is it creative? I think so.
Is it unique? I think so!
Does it represent me? Yup I think so...
Exciting right? I love Squirrellyartmama because it just says it all.....
Squirrellyartmama ~ Where art is all over the place!
Hope you enjoy the name Squirrellyartmama and the website as much as I do.
