What's In A Name

I made a new banner with a phonetic spelling of my blog name (one for my Etsy too) I also made a picture for the link on my side bar that takes you to the definition for the word Sidereal, there is even a neat little speaker to click for the pronunciation. I have been meaning to do this for some time but just kept putting it off until a dear blog friend, Jaime sent me an e-mail telling me she had looked it up in the dictionary, and it reminded me to get it done. She also had a good tip to remember the how it's pronounced, it sounds like ethereal. Thanks Jaime =)
I had a hard time choosing a name, second guessing, finding one I like, having it be taken bla bla bla, anyway I found the word Sidereal in the dictionary and liked it. I realized at the time it might not be the most memorable, and that most people (unless your a astronomy buff) wouldn't know what it meant but I went with it anyway, I've thought about changing it but I'm over a year in so I'm gonna keep it plus dang it I like it. I've always had a thing for stars...the kind in the sky, not the screen.

Also, I made a pillow out of a t-shirt my little one grew out of.

I think it's great that you now have an explanation for your blog and shop name and the speaker idea is fabulous. (I still have to think in my head ethereal when I see it, hee hee)

I LOVE your t-shirt pillow!!!! I think you may be onto something really cool there for your shop (but I'll bet you're keeping that one). I can see lots of thrift shop trips for discarded treasures :)

I'm sorry it's taken me a week to comment on this post, keep posting!! You've got good things to say :)
