    My avatar is from the Burger King Simpson's generator - you took your own pic and it converted it into a Simpson-like picture. So, it's me, as a cartoon.

    My name is my name - i didn't realize when adding my account they wanted a screen name. I asked the admin if I could change it and never got a reply....

    well, "Mesh" is pronounced like "Mich" in Michelle. then the "a" in "aal" is pronounced like the "a" in Apple. I hope my description is not more confusing :D

    My name is just my initials, not very creative, but at least I won't forget it.

    My avatar is a portrait of Elektra: I don't know a blessed thing about comic books, just thought she was beeeyooootiful.

    Here she is not in her work clothes: http://philnoto.tumblr.com/image/18612031528

    My user name is from my dobie (doberman) girl Cleo (short for Cleopatra) and the picture is one that my husband scanned for me while scanning a bunch of photos I inherited - some long-lost relative I presume but I like her suit and especially her hat.

    My avatar is me, my name is a play on words. I love to eat, as my waist will prove, and I’m a Hawaiian from Hawaii. The spin is that I’m also hungry for knowledge. I do a wide variety of crafts and projects and am ever in search of new and cool things to do or build.

    *Vampire voice* Good Eevening!

    My username was once dreaded and despised!! I was- and still am enthralled by Science and chemistry.

    I have lovingly embraced my Nerd qualities, and kept the name as a reminder that weird, smart, and different ARE OK and even sometimes bad ass.

    I'm passionate about Bath Bombs! The formulation of them, The procurement of awesome ingredients, The art and design aspect, what they do for mind, body, spirit! I can go on but I'll spare you.
    My Avitar (for now) is snap at the Zoo here in Beautiful San Antonio, I absolutely treasure our amazing world for the splendid resources we are lucky to have! Seeing Dr. Carl Segan's Pale Blue Dot turns me to teary gooey mush..

    I look forward to learning and sharing with you

    Best Regards, Nadia Z.

    Hi my name is Janine and my username is a combination of my email (sunchld) and my state (Michigan).

    I chose my avatar because to me it is a symbol of the unification of the earth's elements (fire, air, water, earth) and Spirit.

    My name comes from the fact that I lived in Kasilof Alaska for several years when I first started getting into online forums.
    Chris obviously is my first name and N is the first letter of my last name.
    I added the N hoping it would help people distinguish me a little bit in one of my local forums(a different forum altogether) from others named Chris living in the area.
    I still get occasional messages from people in another forum asking me if I'm a particular Chris from this area that they once knew years ago. So far none of them were me.lol
    I now live about 15 miles from Kasilof.
    But it's helpful to me to have the same username on all the forms I'm on just so I can keep track of things easier.

    A kayak trip along the creek pictured in my avatar (my backyard) eventually takes me to Mobjack Bay and then to Chesapeake Bay. It’s a beautiful place to live except during a hurricane!

    I chose plantiest as my user name because I used it for my user name on another site. I wanted plantier, but it was taken. I'm always looking for ways to be as crunchy and fragrance-free as possible. Seemed to fit.

    I have a circular sock machine. My son tucked one of his stuffed animal friends inside the tube that was being created. This is now my avatar.

    My username is my default internet and convention namebadge name. I've used it for years.
    My avatar is one of my more recent batches of soap that I did for a challenge involving inlaid designs.

    I chose my username because I am a bladesmith. It is just a hobby for me but one that I've stuck with for about 8 years. I like to spend my extra time in the shop. The avatar is just an old picture of one of my forges running.

    This is my default internet name since forever, across many platforms. The avatar is just one of my polymer clay works.

    That is a gorgeous soap. I saw your gorgeous soap in the Soap Challenge Club. Congratulations! And welcome to the forum, if I didn't say that before.

    My username is the name of my WIP etsy shop (which I chose, itself, because I use a lot of natural botanical/ herbal extracts in my soap+skin care, which remind me of fresh leaf drops sometimes... kinda odd, I realize)

    my icon is just a random icon-size image from my laptop tbh-- I don't have pretty pictures of any of my soaps or a cropped version of my logo yet ahaha...

    Hello, I chose my name valkyrie because i like the sound of it, it gives me a "wow" feeling. I used to have a default internet name, but i feel like i have outgrown it a bit so valkyrie sounds a bit more mature. my avatar is no face from spirited away, that movie means a lot to me and i have loved it ever since i have first seen it at 18 years old.

    Feel like I cheated using my business name and logo! So I suppose what I can say is how we came up with the name? I’m the Raven of our pair and my business partner is Cat. She’s a bubbly, fun, upbeat person that is a huge feline fan. I’m the one normally wearing all black, quieter... so it fit!

    Grams is what five small people call me, and my pic is of a blue merle border collie just like mine -- except mine doesn't every stand still long enough to pose for pictures.
