Winner of Blue Color Kit contest – now for the Pink kit!

This one was a bit challenging – so many great suggestions! The new name of the Blue color kit will now be: *duh-duh-duh-DUMMMMM*

Blue Streak

And the winner (randomly chosen) of the prize pack (Blue, of course) is Joyce Rodli! I’ll be contacting you for your snail mail addy, Joyce.

(Oh, just so’s ya know… a bunch of new stuff is coming in, replenishing color kit supplies… different stuff than before. You’re welcome.)

This suggestion came from both Maggi and Clair. Thanks, gals!

I have to say, I like Blue Streak because, on first glance, it seems so innocent… but then you start thinking of cussing and streakers. Now, that’s the kind of product name that’s right up my alley!

I have to say that Sue Pelletier (one of my fav artists, BTW) offered up some truly gauche names that REALLY appealed to me: “BLUE-job” and “BLUE your nose!”

Blue-job is just my fav. However, we at Gauche Alchemy have a fine line to walk. We must be gauche, yet we can’t cross the line into absolutely offensive… not that I find it offensive in the slightest, but we want to bring people into the Gauche fold without having them run in horror.

I have no idea why I considered “Bannana Hammock” to be just to the right side of the line and “blue-job” to the left side of the line. I can’t explain these things. Maybe I’ll have to go back to therapy to reason through it.

So! Let’s get started on the next contest/drawing! The color this time is PINK. So, let’s hear your GAUCHE suggestions! And don’t be afraid to cross that line I was talking about. After all, I did pick “Banana Hammock” and I seriously considered “Blue Balls” and “Blue-job.”

Give it all ya got! Leave your comments below – and invite your friends! If you post about this, leave a link to the post, and I’ll enter your for an extra chance to win for each different place you post. 😀 Sweeten the pot a little…

Oh, and as a little aside, we ARE going to release a July kit. Our July guest designer has made some truly staggering projects for you to drool over, but you can’t see them yet.

Okay, I’ll give you a couple of sneak peeks:

My last order wasn’t wrapped ,but be still my heart this one was. And I just figured out what The background of the photo will be. hapy happies.

  13. Great names, ladies!

    Joyce – I just came up with our “present” wrapping for the smaller packages. We had been doing that for our kits (you should order one just to see the packaging – including the shipping box!), but I just started doing it for the other kits. 🙂 Glad you liked it. Isn’t it just the best to open your mail to THAT? 😉
