It’s time to put down that sticky glue-gun, fasten the lids on your favourite pot of glitter and tidy away the beads, buttons and bows – the MOO MiniGift Box Competition is over.
Thank you to everyone who took part, but the deadline for the competition has now passed and the judges are forming their opinions on the finalists, ready to give the results in January 2010.
In case you’d forgotten (or perhaps didn’t know) the competition is being judged by MOO’s very own Product Designer (Paul) and Creative Director (Denise) along with Michael Craig – Design Director at Etsy.
Every entry we received was unique, and truly creative. The judges have got some tough decisions to make in awarding the …Continue reading this article…

The ideas have been popping into the MOO Flickr pool over the last few weeks and we thought it was time to share another one of the crafty creations that caught our eye for MOO’s MiniCard MiniGift Box competition.
We’ve had a few entries, and can only imagine that the rest will come pouring in over the next few days with the deadline not far away now (midnight PDT 28th December 2009).
Everyone at MOO Towers has been completely blown away by this next entry….
Recent years have seen the rise of ‘handmade’ on the internet. Stores like Etsy, Dwanda, Glimpse Online, Folksy and more, all sell work from talented crafters, while crafting communities like Ravelry are full of people quite literally doin’ it for themselves. The current economy means there’s less money to spend on gifts this year too, and now more than ever people feel the need to give gifts that really count.

The Circumference isn’t …Continue reading this article…
