Hello Everyone,

With year there has been so many changes to me personally and professionally, With that I feel I need a name change. With new changes in my art style as well as direction I have taken Pea Picker's Primitives feels as if it is stifling my creativity.

SOOo I have decided to have a name change Contest/Give away.

The Grand prize winner will receive the Grand prize based on suggested New name for Pea Picker's Primitives that is chosen by Me.

There will also be other prizes given as a drawing.For the Give away drawing all you have to do is Post a suggested name. If you post this to your blog you will get your name thrown into the hat twice. If you have posted on your blog about HOPE that poor puppy below I will enter your name into the hat a third time. You can enter as many names as you like.
*As with my new change I prefer not to have the words Pea Or Primitive in my suggested new name*

It was raining terribly today so some of the pictures of the prizes will be added tomorrow. The rest will be added in a day or two.

This contest/ Give away will be DRAWN on the 16th. So that prizes can be mailed out on the 17th in time for holiday enjoyment.

I am very excited can't wait to see what the new name will be!

Blessings to you and yours, Pea

2.Tattered Creations by Pea’s ( I know you said you didn’t want your name in it) LOL

3.Cherish Memories of the past and the present

4. For the love of all creations

Hi Pea,
What about changing your name to "One at A Time Folk Art" so that you would retain some name recognition since you would be incorporating a phrase from your existing tagline. I think it would be descriptive of your work and catchy too! Have fun selecting and unveiling the new you tomorrow. :)
