Name My Avatar Contest ~ Phase One

I am so happy with my new avatar, banner and lables that I just smile everytime I see them. But I just can't decide what to call the cute little fluffy sheep.

So I am running a contest to "Name the Sheep".


For the next 3 days, I will gather suggestions from you and on January 7th I will run a poll on my blog and ask for everyone to vote for the winner. On January 10th I will announce the winner ~~~ And the winner will receive this lovely knit scarflette. Valued at $25 this scarflette is knit with a wool/acrylic blend that is soft and functional. With three rows of classic cables and wooden buttons, it will keep your neck warm in style ~~




So all you need to do to participate is:
Leave a comment here with your suggested name for my sheep
Leave your contact information, either your etsy shop, artfire studio, blog address or e-mail address
Keep checking my blog between Jan 7 and Jan 10 to vote and see your progress

On Saturday, Jan 10th I will announce the winner and mail the winner the scarflette free of all costs!


So get your thinking caps on and come up with a name for my cute little sheep. I haven't decided if it's a ram or ewe yet... so all names are acceptable!

Have fun!

Your sheep is so cute and cuddly and looks like a girl to me.

Don't ask me why, but I think he looks like a Walter.

SleightGirl said...

Is it a boy or a girl?

If it's a girl, how about Fur Elise? (yes I know sheep have wool and not fur, but it tickled me anyway)

If it's a boy, how about Woolford?

Lindsey said...

What a cute contest.
I think Ewegina would be fitting.

Doris Sturm said...

How about Shrek?

NewYorkMemos said...

Hmm..

1. "Maw" First came to my mind lol
2. "Felt-ty" hehe doesn't have to be spell that way, but just to pronouce it right.
3. "Felt-lette" same concept as #2 =)

Good Luck with finding a name ^_^

Love it Val!

Since you specialize in felted wool, how about

Woolard Feltman

Hee Hee, sounds like it should have the third after it and he should live on an estate.

MoMo's Bows said...

Great idea....
I am thinking Baaaaabara for a girl and Baaaab for a boy.
Corny huh? LOL ~That is how great minds think in this house!

Love the new banner and avatar! How about Bleep? Bleep the Sheep.

Hippie Dippy Designs said...

He is cute! At work in our instant messaging program there is a graphic of a sheep. We named him "Steve". To add a little fun to the day we IM each other and say "Steve says there is a staff meeting in room 101" Or "Steve says it's 5 o'clock somewhere" and then we pop the graphic into the message. He looks like Steve to me. = )

Nora said...

I'm thinking Lambert. Remember back to your younger days, Lambert the "sheepish" lion. I know he's not a lion, but he looks cute and "sheepish".
