We Are Moving

Things have been a bit crazy around here recently. As many of you know Eddies Hand Painted Things had a name change to A Wincy Glass 'N Design, LLC, as a result  there has been a whole lot of restructuring taking place. Yes that's right, including this blog. Our new blog is under construction and should go live in two weeks.  Check in then for our new location.

Thanks for your patience.

Tag Line Contest For New Company Name.

It has become necessary for Eddies Hand Painted Things to have a name change. As it is now, there is some ambiguity associated with the brand, mainly who is Eddie and why are the pieces signed Wincy as opposed to Eddie?

Well as opposed to popular beliefs Eddies is not a guy but a gal name Wincilla Edwards who decided to use Eddie in the company name to create continuity with a previously owned family business, Eddies Vivid Images. This should also shine some light as to why the pieces are signed "Wincy". It's short for Wincilla. 

So with that said, the new name is "A Wincy Glass & Design". This name was chosen as it best reflects what the company is about  - hand painted glassware and other designs which are design by the artist Wincilla.  This name change means that our website, blog, facebook fan page, and twitter would all be change.  

With all these changes, I wanted you my blog followers and facebook fans to be a part of the process. As result, I am holding a tag line contest for the new company name. "A tag line is usually a short, concise statement so you will not have long to say what you are trying to say and say it effectively. It must express a company's purpose and draw a persons interest enough to want to learn more. it must be attractive and informative to consumers and potential customers".

The winner will have the option of either the 'Lady Tiger' or 'Princess Daisy' hand painted expression stemware. All you have to do to take part is write your tagline in the comment box below the Tag Line Album on Eddies Hand Painted Fan Page.  The winner will be selected on Monday Oct 18, 2010 at 3 p.m.

Stay tuned for further updates associated with the name change.

Wedding Gifts With A Personal Touch

It has become increasingly difficult to find the right wedding gifts for couples today. Especially since most couples may already own all the essentials having lived on their own since college.  This creates the perfect opportunity to give gifts with a personal touch - gifts that say it’s all about you.
One really unique and profound way to to give a really personal wedding gift is to hire a live Wedding Illustrator to do a custom bridal gift. 

Almost everyone gives money as a gift these days; but a really good way to personalize this gift is to add a special note with recommendations as per use - “ I want you to use this to enjoy a romantic day at the spa” or I wanted to chip in and help with savings for a new home.
If the couple is planning a destination wedding you could present them with a personalized hand painted champagne flute reflecting their theme to toast on their special day.
Please share your ideas of other great ways to give weddings gifts with a personal touch.
