Name my shop!

So I keep talking and talking I'm going to sell my stuff. Well I guess I really want to make this happen. So blog followers, help me name my shop!
Business plan: create area in the apartment for proper photography of items for sale. Coupon for proper yarn stash, and wooden letter stash. Get rid of unnecessary yarn stash. Want 6-8 ready to sell blankets so goal is by summer to have the shop up and running.
Yes I think I will go to Etsy. I like the convenience of not having to run the business side. Plus then it will still be a hobby, not as much of a job.
So comment away!! I need ideas for the shop name and at the moment have none!

2012 books!

Well clearly it is 2013, and sadly I did not read the full 30 books I wanted to in 2012. But here is my list of books I successfully completed:
The Hunger Games , Catching Fire , Mockingjay  Suzanne Collins
The Color of Water James McBride
Ender's Shadow Orson Scott Card
The Phantom Tollbooth Norton Juster
Uglies , Pretties , Specials  Scott Westerfeild
Night Road Kristen Hannah
Water for Elephants Sara Gruen
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake Aimee Bender
Always Something There to Remind Me Beth Harbison
Man's Search for Meaning Viktor E. Frankl
Knitting Under the Influence Claire LaZebnik
A Clockwork Orange Anthony Burgess
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe Fannie Flagg
The Art of Racing in the Rain Garth Stein
Life of Pi Yann Martel
Never Knowing Chevy Stevens
Middlesex Jeffery Eugenides
The Time Traveller's Wife Audrey Niffenegger
What Came First Carol Snow
Too Far Rich Shapiro
The Handmaid's Tale Margaret Atwood
The Secret Life of Bees Sue Monk Kidd
Daughters of the North Sarah Hall
Bossy Pants Tina Fey

28 out of 30 books accounts to a 93% finished goal. Not too shabby.
2013 I am also aiming for 30 books. If I reach it, I'll raise the goal but until then I'll just keep aiming for 30 (and getting my library books back on time).
