Have any of you wondered why my shop and blog name is FavMoonGirl? Well, you have come to the right place to find out!
About 5 years ago, I needed to create an Etsy account separate from the family shop, so that I could communicate with another seller for a custom gift without ruining the surprise. I used my default username FavMoonGirl to sign up and didn’t give it a second thought.
Until I decided to open up my own shop on Etsy, that is. I wanted a place to sell my fake piercings and small flower dolls so they would not get lost in our main shop and since I already had an account, I went with it! So, FavMoonGirl Creations I became.
But why was FavMoonGirl my default username in the first place you ask? All because of a book.
Now, that in itself is not surprising, I am a total bookworm and more often than not can be found nose deep in this story or that. The book that inspired at least 3 years of usernames was “Stargirl” by Jerry Spinelli.
This book struck a particular chord with me, as I found a lot of common traits between myself and the main character, Stargirl. The fun, different clothing, the being homeschooled, the Happy Wagon(had a Happy Basket for a while)
I loved this story and it still ranks as one of my top 10 favorite books of all time. Little wonder that I decided that if she was Stargirl, then I as a similar sort of person could be Moongirl and that would be the perfect username! 14-year-old logic, right?
Unfortunately, Moongirl was usually already taken when I went to sign up for things, so I decided to add “fav” as a homage to “Stargirl” being my FAVorite book.
I have always been something of a free spirit and cherish the ability to be able to do my own thing and not be like every one else. I simply love to be unique!
As an old friend once said to me “Most people listen to the music played by the loudspeakers. Then there are the people who march to their own drum. And then there is you, off in the corner, playing a hot pink air guitar!”
Now I proudly create unique and fun jewelry to help accentuate the shiny awesomeness inside of everyone 🙂
