Gauche Girls Open Up- It’s a Hop!

By Heather Pearson, Gauche Mama

Here at Gaucheland Studios, spring has officially sprung.  We’ve made it through the rains (and the caved-in ceiling that it caused!), and are now working like busy little bees to prepare for the upcoming season.

Along with the new season comes some new design team members!  I know that you have all been patiently waiting for the announcement of our new drafts into the army of Gauche Beauties, and I’m here to tell you that your wait is now officially OVER!  We’ve got the craftiest of all crafty ladies– one who dons vintage specs, one who loves heavy metal, even one who may or may not have been a rocket scientist in a former life!

But to learn all the juicy quirks about our ladies, you’re going to have to play a little game; and if you play your cards right, you’ll have many chances to win some prizes in the process.

Each of us Gauche Girls has chosen a word that best describes why we’re so Gauche! Honey, this is where you need to work it a little!  Here’s what you do:  find all the words and which  hoppin’ hunny they belong to, head back  here & post a comment with your answers – if you get it right, you get a shot at the Wholey Sheet prize pack pictured below from us Head Honchettes over here at Gauche Alchemy!  See, it’s EASY.  Got it?

**And don’t forget to leave comments on each blog as you hop along to win additional crafty yumminess!!!**
Let the word search begin!  Okay, since you asked, I’ll go first!  Here’s a messy little layout I created this week to celebrate my new artwork.  If you look closely, you’ll see some rusty keys, a vintage button, some ribbon and a couple antique brooches hidden in that birds’ nest…what can I say?  I have a true soft spot for all things vintage.  Imagine that?  It’s definitely a VIVID tattoo, and I absolutely love it.  Very VIVID indeed.

Now shake those bunny tails of yours and get hoppin’!

  1. Heather, I don’t know which to ogle first — the brilliant layout (love that banner for the title) or the gorgeous tattoo! Ooh and definitely love the little bits of goodies in there, especially the doily and the feather! Brilliant. =)

  2. Oooh I wish I was brave enough to get a tat! That one is seriously yum! Off to hop 😀

    Blimey Joyce you were quick 😀 I had to pop out halfway through hopping (blimming Slimming World!!) Loved ‘meeting’ the design team 😀

  8. Wowowowowowowow congrats to the new DT! (Wait, is saying that like clapping for yourself when they announce your nomination at the Oscars?) lol

    Holy crow, Joyce and Carmen are quick like cats! That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see who wins that AWESOME Wholey Sheet awesomeness! (That’s right, two awesomes for maximum awesome…actually, now it’s 5…)

    I look forward to seeing where GA is headed…Now I’m off to HOP to it! 😀

  9. BEAUTIFUL, Heather! I just want to get all touchy feely with that layout. 😉 I am scheduled to get my 1st tattoo in July of this year, along with my daughter, who turns 18 that month. Wish me luck. LOL!

  10. LOL, I’m glad I went to all the blogs even though I could have cheated and looked here in the comments! I’m so glad I found the Gauche Girls today! Looking forward to watching the site and subscribed to so many blogs that were new for me!

  11. WOOOOO!!!! Go girls! I’m off to hop, but had to leave my two cents here – Heather, that tat is HOT! LOVE it! (The page is pretty rockin’, too!)

    And Maggi, if I were ever to be nominated for an Oscar, I would SO clap for myself!

    Lastly – Joyce, why are you wanting to pour paint on my head & make me wait 45 minutes? I think I missed something! (although, it does sound potentially very interesting!)

  12. Congrats to all of the new girlies on the DT – can’t wait to see all of the GA goodness that the team puts together. Had so much fun on the Blog Hop… here are my answers:

    Thanks for the opportunity to win – 🙂

  13. Stephanie…(hands on hips here)you were TRYING to tell me what to do…reads your words(didn’t you say that you were tooo neat?), spell check, SOMETHING!! 😉
    Heatherrene, how long did it hurt afterwards?and I don’t mean the paper cut!
    ALERT…I spelled QUIRKY wrong.maybe it was all that talk over at Amys blog…and the fact that it was 3am and I was racing Carmen?!?
    And Carmen put your nose blowers away already{they are past their prime}!!
    I learned that Maggi can keep a secret.
    It was SO nice to see LO/projects from the POOBAH’s.

  14. WOW! Now this was some amazing and inspiring MOJO along this hop.
    Here are my words I found along the hop.

    Thanks for letting me hop along.

  15. Wow, Heather. That is one amazing piece of art – and so very you.

    I worked in a tattoo shop when I was younger and it was rare for someone to ask for something so original. Great choice and so beautiful.

    Congrats to the new DT – looking forward to working with all of you 🙂

  16. Nose blowers? LOL! Joyce you are nuts 😛 I loves ya! I was lucky – it was around 8.30/9ish here when I started 😉

  17. Joyce, you are like my friend Eric – your mind is so quirky and quick, I never know what you’re talking about… and then it hits me hours later. 😉

    Heather, you know I adore your tat – ladies, as the one person here who’s seen Heather’s tat IRL, I can say the photos just don’t do it justice – Heather, why don’t ya post the name of the artist? I am totally in envy of your tat.

    Joyce, what on earth were you doing up at 3 a.m.? I thought I was the only one! (I expected the non-U.S. gals to be up – wasn’t the middle of the night for them!) Yes, Heather and I have finally joined in and hope to do more designing rather than just delegating and holding down the fort. (Funny how you start and creative business and quickly find your time to actually *create* kind of dries up!)

    Maggi – clapping for yourself is encouraged around here!

    Carol – so happy to “meet” you! Stick around – we have tons of fun here!

  18. Yippee, I’ve made it!!! What a journey… I need a drink and some light nibbles now..
