Color kit giveaway! [Free stuff alert!]

Sometime before Christmas [OK, so it was quite some time before Christmas…but who’s counting?] we launched the contest for naming the green colour kit.  However, soon after that,  list-making / gift-buying / gift-wrapping / gift-opening / festive-food-eating and the subsequent tidying and clearing out managed to distract us from announcing the chosen name and the random prize-winner! 

However, from today onwards the plain old ‘green kit’ becomes ….. the ‘Envy‘ kit:

Many thanks to LisaNRoxy who was the first to suggest ‘Envy’. Thanks for playing along Lisa, we loved the simplicity-with-a-hint-of sinfulness of your choice!  Keep an eye out in the ArtFire shop soon to see your chosen name in all its glory.

As usual, we added all the names of those who offered a suggestion [one entry per person] into a random list generator and then a random number generator which chose number ‘2′ from this list.  So our prize winner is ……

….Crystal!   Congratulations Crystal!! Can you please send us the address you’d like your prize mailing to?  Thanks!

Although Christmas may be over we’re still in a ‘giving’ mood here so here’s another chance to win a touch of Gauche goodness.  Our black kit is currently the black-sheep of the colour kit family as it’s the only one without a shiny and new name chosen by a Gauche blog reader so, can you help it out?If you want to be credited with re-naming the black kit then leave us your suggestion in the comments below and once you make your suggestion you’ll be entered into the random selection to win the prize!

My initial ideas are somwhere in between Coco Chanel’s ‘little black dress’ and something ‘twighlight’ inspired …. but I’ll leave the rest up to you.

Also,  as we’re still feeling that festive spirit, your name will be entered on the list twice if you leave us a link to a  blog post / tweet / forum [where allowed] etc … anywhere where you’ve re-posted about the contest /giveaway.  That way you’ll have double the chance of winning, so get commenting, suggesting and spreading the news!!

It’s the start of a busy week over here and although I can’t say too much – I’ll just say that if you’ve been wanting to kick-start a new crafting year with a new Gauche Alchemy kit … you might want to watch this space…..

Julie 🙂
