I've had several people ask me why I've decided to use the name "Bagel Creations". Bagel is a nickname that I acquired from a friend's husband. He could never remember how to pronounce my last name which has a nice German ring to it. One day I finally said to him, "It rhymes with bagel!" as he tried to remember how to pronounce it... again. Since then, I've been "Bagel". My husband even started calling me Bagel after we met. So, it is actually very endearing to me, and I really don't mind being associated with a starchy carbohydrate. When somebody calls me "Bagel" it just reminds me of my good friends and those that I love the most. What better inspiration can an artist have?
