Karen's Challange "How did I come up with my Blog Name"

Hi Everyone...I've decided to join in Karen's Fun challenge and fill you in on How I came up with my Blog name.
It would have been really fun if I could have done a whole row of My Primitive Creations across the top..but since I couldn't I picked one of my favorite creations.
I've been crafting/creating things since I was just a kid. When I first started doing shows & selling on Ebay it was easy choosing a name. I wanted a name that described what I did so I named myself *MyCreations*.
When Carmen started decorating her home in Primitive Style she talked me into creating Prim Decor.
Once I started creating Prim Decor I realized I wanted my name to reflect both what I did and the period for my creations so I changed everything on Ebay to My Primitive Creations by Tonya. Once I was established creating and selling Prim Decor Carmen talked me into learning to Blog so that I could see what others were creating and to meet people who liked Prim decor.
After getting over the fear of tackling yet another piece of the Internet world I took the plunge and started Blogging two years ago November 2010.
I was scared to death to Blog because I can create just about anything but doing things on the computer still ielude me totally... setting up my Blog was so complicated for me. Actually its still complicated which is why I haven't changed my blog page in two years.
It was simple for me to carry my Ebay Selling name over to my Blog because I wanted to share the prim Decor I was creating and I wanted feedback from others who were into Prim Decor as well as get idea's from that feedback. I also hoped that my Blog would help interested buyers to find My Primitive Creations by Tonya easier when they were out there searching the net.

My Blog has been everything I'd hoped and more. It has boosted my sales, its given me so many ideas to use when creating my prim decor & its filled my world with so many new and wonderful friends!



  1. Hi Tonya,

    Wow that is neat how you got started. :)

    It will be my one year blog anniversary in about a month. I started my blog on Halloween. I can't believe that its been that long already.

    I hope you are still healing fine and that you are able to do more creating.

    I am still trying to get back into blogging regularly but it is so hard. :( I can't believe being gone for just over a month could do this to me. But I will keep trying.

    Gotta run...have a great Wednesday.
    Take care, Janet W
