Thanks to all who submitted names to our Petit Éléphant naming contest.  We’ve decided on a name (finally!) and are quite pleased to introduce you all to Marcel Z. Éléphant.  Marcel will hang out atop all of our blog posts to keep you company while reading.  His form will also be pressed into all of our soaps, and adorn all of our packaging.

What a cute little elephant he is…

The reader who won is called “Katie!”.  Funnily enough, we first thought it was our Williams-townie friend Katie Kamieniecki who had thought up the name.  We were so very excited and fully prepared to crown her winner and send her the prize.  But alas, Katie K. came forward as not reader Katie!, and we were left in bewilderment–how many readers called Katie are there?  We’ve now come to find that it was Katie Lepi who suggested Marcel, and so she is the one true winner of the contest.  Congratulations to Katie! Lepi! who will will receive a Le Petit Éléphant gift bag full of soaps and other treasures, which we’ll send to her once we commence our soap-making, sometime in late November.

Soaps!  Bags!  Candy!  Stationery!

Tell your friends.  We’re taking orders now for delivery for the holidays.
