Prim Perfection is the name of my shop on Etsy and eBay. So, where does the name, Prim Perfection, come from...you may ask? And...actually, no one has really asked me that question before, but when I tell people the name of my shop they give me a blank or inquisitive stare, lol. I assume others that visit my shop might be wondering the same thing. So, I decided to do a little splainin'...
I first have to preface this with telling you that my shop (including the name) and genre have gone through many different phases over the years, as well as, the designs of my banners...
I have 2 styles of crafting/designing that I like which are polar opposites. Shabby chic and primitive/country. About a year and a half ago, I started making hand painted wood signs. The kind that are heavily distressed with a lot of flogging, chipping and sanding. And, of course, when a person lists their items on eBay or Etsy they have to write a description. Sellers were always describing their primitive wares, as "distressed to...prim perfection!" This phrase really caught on with me, so to speak, and I was always putting this into my descriptions, as well. So, hence, I thought it would be a cute name...and, changed the name of my shop.
Being a person that always analyzes things, to a fault, I thought that people might think that I was being "braggy" and implying that I think that I am perfect. Lol. Which is totally not the case! I'm a little more modest than that! So I redesigned my banner and hung the crown on a flourish to make it look like it had fallen off....thereby, implying that, while the name of my shop has the work perfect in it...I am a not-so-perfect person :)
And, of course, the lovely graphics of the crown, roses and the little blue bird that sits atop the letter "P" are from Karen at The Graphics Fairy.
P.S., you can visit my Etsy shop, here, where you'll find lots of shabby chic and French inspired graphic designs. Oh, and leave a comment, if you like!
