Anyway, she sent me this nasty letter, that I will include for you all to read. So being that I am a nice person and very easy going, and had no ILL INTENTION AT ALL to “infringe” on her Etsy name, that obviously has not generated traffic which is why she is probably all bitter with me, but I am generous enough to change my name.
Now I am faced with a dilemma………………….what to name the soap company. You can see my Little Bitty is not happy with this.
I am going to post all my soaps for sale on the blog I share with my sisters, which has been so badly neglected. Sigh, but better than wracking up charges and headaches. Sheesh!
Have fun reading this womans letter to me, I had fun deleting all my listings and then putting:
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE LITTLE BITTY SOAP COMPANY
I would hate for her to get all sorts of unnecessary traffic from poor, pity, little, bitty, me.

Wow! That was rude and threatening. Hmmm another name I will have to think on this one…
I know right?! I mean a better approach would have seemed less aggressive and still got the point across. Like I said, I am easy breezy.
Easy Breezy is the way to be!
Wow, attorneys we're not and G. DeConto probably isn't either. Depending on how important the name is to you, it would be interesting to get an attorneys opinion. I wonder if Little Bitty Soap Company is incorporated. Anyhow, I have an idea for another name and you may have thought of it already. How about Little Itsy Bitsy Soap or Little Itty Bitty Soap. By the way thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. I'm going to follow you, please stop by again and follow me, I need followers please. I enjoyed reading your blog.
The name issue is really a mute point, it was more of a sentiment than anything because of my daughter. Which is why the name change is no problem. I am more than agreeable. But the blatent accusations and threats…you don't threaten a Leo, nor an aspiring law student, nor a blogger who has deep contacts with attorneys and such. But whatever, she's just bitter because of the lack of traffic! LOL
Again, water under the bridge….I just have to get to that darn post for the giveaway on the new name.
I thought you could use a little cheering up for today. So I have an award that will be ready for you shortly. Hope you had a great Sunday.
How about a Little Bitty change?
Like "Li'l Bitty Soap".
See thats why I love you ladies!!?? You are all so stinking smart….I need to just get the dang post done!!
she went a bit too far didnt need all those threats…knowing me I would gie her a hard time for sendiung such a thing
geez. why did she have to be such a biatch about it. a simple excuse me would have sufficed, no?
i'm going to think of a name for your soaps…
give me a couple hours.
wow. that sucks. good luck with another name. love the picture of your little bitty though. 🙂
Oh tell them to suck it!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment love!! It's anniversary #2!
I'm not sure what to name it, but my tagline would read: Not THAT Little Bitty Soap Company
