Not too busy for a little blog candy!

Would you believe I was working on several posts last week, and they never got scheduled? They are still in an unfinished state, but believe me, they are coming!

Not only that, I still haven’t found the time to choose our “average scrapper.” I’m not slackin’ – just a busy, busy woman lately. That’s what having a day job gets ya. (That’s my sneaky little plan to get you to order more – telling you how much more efficient we could be if one of us could dump the day job. Not very sophisticated, I know, but then neither are we.)

Here’s a little something for you to chew on while waiting for me to get my shit together. How about a giveaway?

This giveaway is inspired by this post on Julie’s fantastic Copy & Paste blog. The post, in turn, was inspired by Shimelle’s Month of Color. Now, that’s a buttload of inspiration there.

But first, a little inspiration from The Beatles… and Mr. Fabulous. Can’t forget Mr. Fabulous. If you have 2 and a half minutes, gotta see this. Not to be missed. In fact, it you don’t have 2.5 minutes, make time.

Okay, so here’s the deal. I think calling our color kits “yellow color kit” and “green color kit” is remarkably boring and not at all gauche. Make a comment below telling us what you think the yellow color kit should be called.

For instance, I thought “condom yellow” might be a little TOO gauche… but “lemon tart” seemed a little too oblique… you know, “tart” as in a luscious lady. The winner of a yellow kit will be drawn at random… and if we like your suggestion, you’ll see it in living color on our ArtFire shop! (Whee! Hi mom!)

You want some of this, don’cha?

Oops, almost forgot to tell ya. Stay tuned – I’ll be releasing a new kit soon. I’ve got them packaged and photographed, just need to list them. When I can get my sorry, sore, busy butt in gear. Or at least put the gearshift in the right position. So, I’m… uhhh… pointed the right way.

And don’t forget – we’ll be releasing our July kit within the next few weeks. We have a special handmade treat for these kits – and wait ’til you see them! Just remember, they look better in real life. (Photos don’t ever do anything real justice, do they?)

    Lemon Pudding
    A Taste of Yellow
    Yellow Rose of Texas

  35. “Just Ducky”
    “Sunflower Fields”
    “canola crop”
    “let your fingers do the walking”
    “Bumblebee’s Belly”

  36. How about
    Sunshine lollipop

  37. guysl rock the names!!!

  38. Canary Custard.

    Both words which make me think of yellows. And which make me smile, especially when together!

  39. How about Cadmium Orbs Collection. I had been coloring with a copic marker that is called Cadmium Yellow when it came to me. lol

  40. English isn’t my first language, and I’m always having trouble finding the right title, so this question isn’t easy for me. However, that picture of the yellow kit instantly reminded me of that happy song “Walking on sunshine”. Any kit with a name like that would grab my attention.
