Please help me... I'll give you a prize

Recently I was asked if I would provide a linking blinkie - I dare you to type that 3 times fast! And who am I to deny the masses (or the one person who asked me...)?

My husband had to bear the burden of implementing my crazy blinkie because I don't even know how to open Photoshop. While he has already finished his end of the deal, I am still wrestling with wording.

This is where you come in. I NEED help. I don't want flattery or even diplomacy. I want the truth about my blinkie. The cold, hard truth. This is life and death, people.

I need to know if you prefer option 1, 2, or neither. Also if you have any additional ideas to add to the mix, that would be more than wonderful. 



Option 1)


or


Option 2)



To lure you from the comforts of lurkdom, I am offering this apron:



I will be randomly selecting the winner from commenters, so if you don't tell me your opinion, you will have no hope of winning the prize! I will be accepting comments until Wednesday, June 11 @ 8:00 a.m. 

Thanks for helping, and good luck!

I like the one that says "She's Crafty" ... short, sweet, and to-the-point. Love the pineapple ... being from the south, it makes me feel right at home!

Elles Niche said...

Both are very cute, but I have to say I like Option 2. I love the tag line! It is a little sassy!

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

Clever husband! Option 1 is best as it is gets the message across instantly.

Org Junkie said...

I like how the second one ties in the pineapple so I say #2 but they are both great.

I would have no idea how to do that either :)

Jenny said...

I like option 1, "She's Crafty". I'm sitting hear in the morning drinking my coffee and my brain can't read very fast yet. Option 2 had to flash several times before my poor sleepy brain could take it in. But that could just be me :) But my vote is option 1. And I love the pineapple.

gordostyle said...

Cute apron!

I'm all over option 2. I think it's cute to say "fresh slice" and have your pineapple there... To me... It ties it all together!

Smiles!
Jennifer

John and Tessa Croshaw said...

I like #2. The wording is better!

Mamaduso said...

I like number two better.

Tanna Clark said...

She's Crafty! For sure! Hmmmm, I need a blinky thing. :)I'll just have to add that to my list of bloggy to do's.

Deb said...

I like the first one, "She's crafty". Any person who is looking for crafty ideas will automatically be drawn to that one. Love your ideas.

Julie said...

Others have mentioned it, but I really like option 2 because there's nothing better than a fresh slice of pineapple or a fresh slice of crafty. So option 2.

Seth, Sarah and the kids said...

#1....it is cute and makes you want to 'know' more!! love it!

Meredith said...

Option 1...She's Crafty!
Love it!

the meyer fam said...

I really love #2. Good luck deciding, they are both great!

Jenny said...

#1 is short and sweet but #2 has a cute tie to the pinapple...I say #2!!

Can't wait to add it to my blogs!

Miriam said...

I like Option 1- it's easier to read when blinking and I like the way it gets right to the point. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your ideas and can't wait to make some of the projects! Keep 'em coming!

Jenn said...

I just found your blog last night through Blissfully Domestic. I have loved looking around!

I choose option 2 - I think it is very clever. Good luck in deciding.

Bahama Shores Mama: said...

I think option # 2 is the best. Love the reference to the slice!

Songbirdtiff said...

I like #2, but I think you should go with the one YOU like best. :)

Andrea said...

I like "a fresh slice of crafty" best. Very cute!

Anonymous said...

Adorable apron!
I like the first. It makes me want to come and check it out...see just how crafty she is!

Autumn said...

Don't count me for the prize but I like the "She's Crafty" one the best:) Very cute! I will put a "blinkie" on my blog for you:)

Christian said...

Tough choice, "she's crafty" is easier to read. But I think I still have to go with "fresh slice." Can't wait to put your blinkie on my blog!

LeeAnn said...

Coming out of lurkdom! LOL
I like the "She's Crafty". It is very cute and to the point!!!

DaisyCake said...

#2 is my vote. If you could use a different font, it might be a bit easier to read. But even without a different font, I vote #2!

Jennie said...

I enjoy the 2nd one... It just puts something extra out there.

Carrie said...

I like number 2, but number one is easier to read. so I would go with #1

Jaime said...

I like option !! Very cute!

Do it yourselfer... said...

I like option 1 best. It's simple & sweet!

LeAnne said...

I like #2 better. Love the apron and reading about all of your wonderful ideas.

plslade said...

I like option #1 best. It's easier to read!

AmyDe said...

I like option #1 - it's kind of cheeky!

Amber said...

Both blinkies are cute, but I have to say I prefer option #2. I like how "a fresh slice" ties in with your pineapple. It also makes it sound like you're always updating your blog (hence, the word fresh), which you do.

*j-u-l-e-s* said...

I like she's crafty!

sewing addict said...

Option #2! Short and Sweet and Eye Catching!

Mindy said...

I like 2 after much debate. I like the word "slice" to go with the pineapple theme!

Ann said...

Hi! I found your site on tip junkie. I love how crafty you are.. With that said I like #1. It's so simple but yet it make a strong statement. BTW, love the apron! Cute!!

Alison Gibbs said...

Kristin I like #1.
Alison

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

I love option #2! It ties the pineapple in perfectly.Where o where is your bag you are working on? I am not so patiently waiting to see it!!

Tammie & Carter said...

Option #2 is too long. Hard to read before it flashes back.
I like option #1
Good Lcuk deciding!

Angie said...

I like the 2nd one better. Cute wording and the look is simple and clean. :)

Krista said...

WOW . . . so much going on!! =) I checked earlier . . . before basketball camp and swimming lessons and there was no update . . . now there's an update with a ton of comments! You go girl! Oh how people do love to give their opinion! Okay, so here's my opinion . . . of the two, definintely option #2 . . . don't count me for the prize though . . . it's SO cute but I would never use it. Can I put a blinkie on my blog for you?

Brennen & Cassie said...

I like #1. It is easier to read because it is shorter and to the point! Looks great, I love your blog!

TONYA said...

I love no.2 it's catchy.

Tamra said...

I like option 2. And I love the apron.

Libby said...

I vote #1!
Love your posts!

mamatwoboys said...

I like option 1. To the point, accurate and makes we want to click and learn more.

THE TATTERED NEST said...

keep it simple ....she's crafty. that's my vote. great job on the blinkie!

Mrs. Garner said...

Definitely option 1. It's so cute but also to the point. Love the pineapple; makes me think of going to Hawaii.

Holly said...

I love love the first one. Straight forward and not too wordy. Fantastic!

April said...

Well....I like the first one...She's Crafty....its catchy !!

HappyScrapper said...

I like both of them, but the first one would have to be my pick. Hope this helps!! Have a great day!!

dixie@wildwood.baker.org said...

My favorite is number 1. It gets the point across immediately.

Jacinda said...

I like #1 the best.

SouthAsiaRocks said...

I like the 2nd one best - definitely - it's creative. The first one sounds a little ego :) but the 2nd one rocks!

Robin said...

I like option #1. It's sweet and simple. Plus, it is easier to read.

Nikola said...

I like the 1st one better.

sweetpea said...

I like the first one...simple is always better in my mind!

DM said...

I like the 2 option better than the first. If you do not go with that one, then how about mixing the two: "She's like a fresh slice of crafty life"? :) Seriously, I like the 2nd option.
I hope I win the prize.

Christy said...

I like option #1 because it is short and to the point. If you want to get the "fresh" part in, but keep it short... how about "Refreshingly Crafty."

Jawan said...

I like option 2 since the choice of words (slice) is fitting with the picture of the pineapple. Tasty, too!

daisyeyes said...

i love option one...short, sweet, easy to read and to the point

Anonymous said...

I like Option 1 - simple & cute!

Giabella Designs said...

I like option 1 best! I really like the concept.

Natalie said...

I love the one that "She's crafty" - it makes me think of that song ~ it's a rap song I think and now I have it in my head. I vote for the first one. I hope I win because I never win a darn thing!!

Alison B said...

I like the first one. I think the "she's crafty" part is very intruiging so people will click on it. very cute.

Aubrey said...

Love #2! Gives a good description and tie-in.

Great blog! I've been checking it out a lot lately! You have cute stuff and ideas!!

Holly said...

I vote for option one! They're both cute but 'She's Crafy' is my favorite.

Holly said...

I like #2 better! I love the tag line and it would definatly be something I would post on my blog!

Erin said...

I say #2! "She's Crafty" is nothing special. I really like that #2 ties into your pineapple.

Lori said...

I like NO. 1 - she's crafty. It's easy to read in between blinks:)

kristi lee said...

Number 2 makes me smile and want to know more!!!

col @ gigablonde :: things to do in ny when you're [alive] said...

I wonder what the results will be, I'm so curious! #1 really appealed to me because it was simple and readable and I thought what it said was cute. I know the other was unique and all but it didn't have the punch of #1. Especially as it's blinking, it makes me want a quick-read. Give your husband many hugs for this, ok? (I know you already did :)

Kathy said...

I prefer #2. The word "fresh" catches my attention.....makes it stand out from the many crafting-type blogs that are out there. Also love the pineapple connection as well as the "fresh" green color! Have fun deciding!

Lacy said...

Lovin the cuteness of both, but leaning toward #2. A little slice of.....is catchy and lureing. Oh, I cant wait to put the winning one on my blog!!!! Have fun with it!

Nancy Sabina said...

I'll vote for Option 2 - so cute along with your pineapple.

Brittany Iverson said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love "meeting" other bloggers and your blog is so great. Your writing is so witty, I love it.

As far as shopping... I am originally from Idaho so I can totally sympathize with the situation. Welcome my dear friend internet. They are actually having a promo on their website right now. 20% off your ENTIRE Martin and Osa purchase. How fab is that!

I also added your blinkie. Was it difficult to make? I really want to make one for my website but haven't found a good tutorial on how to do it. Would you mind sharing? My email address is certainlycharmed {at} gmail.com

Thanks!

Brittany

I like number two the best because it is a cute and smart play on words. Also, it ties in with your blog better. Once a company has a recognizable logo they rarely change it! Is it possible to have the blinky go back and forth between the two? Grace Violet/she's crafty/Grace Violet/a fresh slice of crafty/Grace Violet/she's crafty...etc.
