We are a family… Gauche Girls to be announced soon!

By Amy Wing, Gauche Poo-bah

****pssst….. DON’T MISS NICOLE’S FANTASTIC POST BELOW – it’s seriously awesome.****

I’m honestly not trying to be such a tease.  Honestly.

We have made the painful design team decisions. It seems of the few calls we’ve done since our inception in late 2008, each one gets harder.  I know we are doing something right when we draw such quality applications, but I tell you, that doesn’t make it any easier to turn away all the talented and dedicated folks we must.  I will freely admit there was much knashing of teeth as we made our final decisions.

All who applied have now been informed of our choices.  All we need to do is make our public announcement and usher in a new age for Gauchites everywhere.  😉

I will give you a hint about why our announcement is going to take a few more days to appear: there are going to be a LOT of changes going on up in here.  We are so blessed to have a varied group of women (no men in our groups yet? sigh…) who are dedicated to making Gauche Alchemy all it can be.  We are trying to get organized, work out everyone’s new and exciting roles, and design even better blog content for y’all.

We will be losing team members, gaining team members, and adding partners.  Gals, it’s gonna be a helluva ride.  🙂
