New Blog Name? contest?

So since the Thrifty Fifty is over- I was thinking of changing my blog name- but I can't seem to think of anything clever- so howabout a contest?
The winning blog name will get a special care package from me- maybe fabric, maybe scrapbooking, maybe both, maybe something already made.
Here are somethings to go off of: I have 4 children- all 6 yrs old and younger. My husband is Israeli- so if you can think of something clever in hebrew, bring it on. My sign on name for a lot of places is imalearba4 (ima le arba is mother to 4 in hebrew). We don't have any pets- my kids are desperately afraid of dogs (don't ask me why, I haven't figured that out). I like to do crafts, sewing, scrapbooking, beading, knitting, crocheting, etc. I can't draw worth anything, but if Carla wanted to make me a cute little person like hers on the Scientific Seamstress blog, I wouldn't say no.
So have fun, be creative. I could use Imalearba- but people get confused about that sometimes.
To enter just make a comment to this post.

I don't have a good name suggestion, but I posted about your contest on WiKnit, my knitting contest blog. Good luck with finding a great new name!!

How about "Taphar with you! " which means sewing together with you. Or another one I have is " Scrap n Sew Ima " I will see if I can think of anything else.

How about "all made by Me" That includes, kids, sewing, crafts, photos - Whatever - and you can share about both people and things.
Then again I kind of like the NTF too.
Good luck!

I totally think you should use ima le arba. I know you said people might get confused. I was when I started to read it, but once you explained it it seemed so meaningful because that ties to you and your family. The hebrew is important to you because of your husband, the statement is about your children, and the fact that you use this quote for your e-mail address shows that it is important to you. Your blog is about you, your life, and the things you care about, your name should reflect that. To enlighten others about the meaning of the phrase, though, you could use an image that helps illustrate it. I made a sample one for you to get an idea using the color scheme on your page, but I'm not sure how to upload it... let me try to e-mail it to you.

I think that just ImaLeArba all together like that but with the capital letters to help most with pronunciation would be perfect! (and meaningful to you). Or even "ImaLeArba Wonders" which leaves so much to the imagination...and what mother of 4 doesn't often wonder about so many different things!

How about kin ina hara or kein ayin hara? I think your husband will know what it means, it's Yiddish. Good luck for your family and blog!

after reading some of your earlier posts, what came to mind is "I Think Sew"

Good luck with your contest!

Ima mama

I suggest "Mom of 4, Crafts, Sewing and More". Your banner could be a collage that includes "imalearba" in a prominent position, because of its special meaning to you.
