Silver Crow Project


Fanfare Maestro please!

I have been wanting to shout this news from the rooftops since I found out - might've had a job getting up there mind you but the urge has been there! And today... TODAY I finally get to un-glue my lips and shout...

I, yes me, this person here - is a Gauche Alchemy design team member!!! (Excessive use of exclamation marks is indeed warranted in this case!!!!!!!!) Check here if you don't believe me! 'tis true I tell you!

Oh the endurance and patience my family have had to put up with since I found out. GA have no idea of the monster they have created. I have used this to officially declare myself an artiste. No, not just an artiste... a RECOGNISED artiste. Sadly another word has been tagged on to the front of that which I wont repeat but the guilty offenders will be punished at my leisure. I am now on the hunt for an appropriate beret and smock to paint spatter. I have demanded bowls of sour cola bottles and peanut M&M's to be placed around my work area along with ice cold Diet Cokes... these are yet to materialise but I'm sure they will. At some point. Even if I have to bliddy do it myself!

I may not have put across just how UBER excited I am. But I am. Just an iddy bit. I SO love Gauche Alchemy in all it's vintagey, retro, grungy, geeky, unique, individual gauchiness. I hope you can put up with my spouting chocolate covered words of joy for a good while yet.

Thanks for stopping by. You may leave the peanut M&M's in the bowl on your way out :)
