ok...I thought I'd decided on my biz name...SugarBelle's...even made up a graphic (thanks to the help of lots of you here at CC!!), few biz cards, etc. Very fitting since I'm in the deep South...so I thought. Now I'm wondering if I should change it again!!?? lol icon_eek.gif

I agree. Dont let anyone talk you out of something that you are proud of.

Thanks everyone! I really love SugarBelle...guess I'm just a little nervous. Maybe I should just wait a little longer and see if the name starts to kick in and get me some more business....lol. I think I still want to have a back-up name, though. icon_razz.gif

I like SugarBelle. The other names sound like tongue twisters. My only criticism is that it does not sound like a bakery name. I would guess it was a little girl's clothing store.

That was along the lines of what I've heard from friends and family. Currently, the tag-line I have for SugarBelle's is: "The Sweetest THings in the South"...but that's still not very exacting. So maybe I should just have "A Cakery" under SugarBelle's? I don't know.....

I like SugarBelle's! Don't let anyone talk you out of it! Maybe a "Cakes Baked with Southern Pride"? ...just a thought to play up the Southern Belle theme you were going with for your logo!

I like how that sounds! I like SugarBelle's better than your new options.

Thanks so much everyone for the encouragement!!! I'm sticking with SugarBelle for now....and I tried it out today at my son's school.

I posted to the cookie forum about my gingerbread cookies ("dough softening") - there you'll see a pic of the gingerbread boys & girls that I made and packaged up as Christmas presents for my son's classmates and faculty at school. I had a card that I folded over and attached to clear plastic bags that the cookies were in...on one side "Merry Christmas....From: (Son's name). And on the back I printed: Made for you by: SugarBelle's - The Sweetest Things in the South ...Call (My full name) at: (my phone#). I know...it's my original slogan - but after reading all of your encouraging words, I thought I'd try it out on a whole new group of people...which I didn't really know - so I figured I'd get super honest reactions. I quietly tucked one package inside each of the kids school bags, as is the norm for parents to do with gifts at their Christmas parties at school. Before I could even sit my empty basket down, I had 2 moms come over to me and ask me where I got the cookies, ohhhh - they're just great; these are so adorable, they smell so good; and my personal favorite... "Where's SugarBelle's??" !!!! icon_eek.gif
Sorry so long... I just wanted to share it with ya'll. And I wanted to let you allllllll know..........EVERY ONE OF YOU WERE RIGHT!!!!!! thumbs_up.gif
