Vive le Chic!


Remember this? The bracelet I made from ChicMaker's kit? And the post in which I bragged about it?  Because I made it and you and I didn't know I could?  And the nice people at ChicMaker said go ahead, try it on us? You do remember?  Oh, you are tres gentil.

Well here's the real news..the lovely personnes at ChicMaker want me to offer YOU the chance to try a kit.  There are three kits on offer and it's a terribly simple thing - leave a comment saying that you'd like a kit.  Here's the thing - one of your words must be in French.  I know, that's not trop dificile is it.  It's not a ChicMaker requirement, it's mine.  It's fun!  YES it is.


And you see how adding a sprinkling of this sophisticated and chic language makes you feel well, chic and sophisticated?  No really, it does.  So imagine how it will feel to make a real piece of French Designer jewellery.  Oh la la, we won't know ourselves!

Mai Oui, Je parle un peux Francais pour vous! J'adore un Chic Maker kit... okay I actually speak French better than I can write it! My French A level may well have taught me to speak the language but I can never remember how to write it correctly. Anyway I'd love to try a kit, as you know I'll happily have a go at anything crafty. Merci Beaucoup mon ami. Zo xx

I stopped by to see what you were up to and vous vous souvenez, je ne vois pas les liens, mais je peux voir votre blog, à droite? Literally, it means "you do remember I can't see the links, but I can see your blog, right?" Love these beads and, based on your approval of the kit, I think I could also make a bracelet, or Je pense que je pourrais aussi faire un bracelet.

Karen K said...

Rennie, Rennie ! (from the good old Hello Hello days), I used to love that show, especially the policeman who just cracked me right up as well as Michelle with her french accent and then her english accent for the English Airman. I miss that show.

Would love a chance to win merci beaucoup.
