MOO customers are people of many talents. Today, we salute those with aching legs, steely reserve, and warm clothing. Yes, we’re talking about the people in training for The London Marathon. (You need steely reserve and warm clothing to train in the not-so-sunny British weather. It’s freezing out there.)
The London Marathon raises millions of pounds for charity every year. Runners are actively encouraged to run in support of a charity, which really means getting people to sponsor you by any means necessary. Just Giving have taken a lot of the hassle out of this for people in the UK in recent years, by providing a simple way to enable friends to sponsor you online. You get a …Continue reading this article…
Oh yes! It’s taken a wee while, but we’re pleased to report we’ve now got a full range of leather MiniCard holders in stock, in a variety of colours.
We’ve got dark brown, dark blue, lemony yellow, pale green, pale pink, sky blue and white:
We’re also expecting to get some more felt holders in soon too, so we’ll have more than just black and red available!
And of course, our own MOO-made holders are also on their way. (If we have to hold our breath any more for these I think we’ll all pass out – but they are well and truly on the way, and we can’t wait.)
So, if you fancied a leather holder, don’t sit there …Continue reading this article…
What’s your favourite web app? The one you just can’t live without. Is your social life ruled by Facebook? Do you twitter, obsessively? Plan your holidays around your Dopplr friends and your tunes around last.fm?
Or… is it us? IS IT? Of course it is.
Either way, those nice folks over at Carsonified are doing a little poll, and they’d like your input. They want to find people’s top 10 web apps, and they’ll be announcing the results on 5th Feb. And why should you tell them, of all people? Well, because it’s quite interesting and I’d like to know the answer. Oh! And there’s also the chance of winning a Nintendo Wii!
So it was a little shocking to witness much wailing and gnashing of teeth when Kim, our Product Manager arrived in the office without her bag. You know, the bag that contains an Ipod Touch (borrowed), a Playstation Portable (also borrowed), an Ipod video, a Lomo Camera and regular stuff like cash, keys and a *really* nice pair of headphones.
She’d left it on the bus.
She was so upset, some of us even turned around in our chairs to see what all the …Continue reading this article…
There’s a lot of creativity lurking among the MOO customers. Sometimes it inspires us, sometimes it makes us laugh, and often the ideas are so good we wonder how come we hadn’t thought of doing it ourselves. Then… well, then there’s the Milk n MOO pool.
‘Milk n MOOs? What can that be?’ I hear you cry. Well, to quote from the group directly, it’s ‘Photos including milk and moo cards’. Obviously. What else did you think it would be?
These are just a few of our favourite photos:
This is absolutely fantastic, by emelynilsson. She says ‘The evolution of Milk starts with MOO and ends with Butter.’ (Click the image to see it larger.)
This lovely looking photo is …Continue reading this article…
There’s always something nice about a handmade gift. And if you can’t make a gift yourself, well, the next best thing is the wrapping. The link I lost the other day has been found – it’s this beautiful paper-heart box. Perfect for a little Valentine gift – your last Rolo, a diamond ring, or a little magnet decorated with a MOO Sticker.
But if that’s just too hearty for you, and your Valentine has slightly alternative tastes, then this could do the trick:
Don’t love Valentine’s day? We know. We’re worried no one will send us a card either. I mean… Yeah! We think it’s rubbish too. Ahem.
So much so that we twisted Meg Pickard’s arm, and demanded she add her Anti-Valentines cards to our offering this year. They’ve been available as e-cards on her own site for the last year or two, and we think they
Whilst looking for a link which is so far remaining irritatingly elusive, I stumbled across kirigami. You might know origami, the art of folding paper? Well kirigami is a close relative. It’s the art of folding and cutting paper.
If you’re the crafty type and you’re thinking of making something a little different for Valentines day, then these images might give you some inspiration. If you don’t fancy making something yourself, relax, grab a drink, and look at the beautiful photos.
lilzabubba started my introduction to the world of kirigami. She’s created a variety of different ‘snowflakes’. This one is particularly relevant to Valentines day – but the whole set is really worth a look.
There’s an infinite number …Continue reading this article…
Anyone? No one? Someone… but you haven’t told them yet? Shockingly, if you want to make a really personal Valentines card or present this year, you need to start thinking about this now. How do I know? Well, because people are already blogging about it. And, lets face it, it takes time to think of what you want to make, get something printed and then to work your own special magic on it.
We’re busy working on a few ideas of our own, and will share them with you over the next few weeks. In the meantime,here’s an idea to get you started – look at this, by Steve O:
It’s 100 MiniCards, carefully mounted into a shadow …Continue reading this article…
Happy New Year! If you’re looking for a new hobby to start 2008, or something to get your creative juices flowing, you could do a lot worse than check out the MOO Flickr pool. And I’m not just talking about making MiniCards, I’m talking about all the great pictures people put on the cards. There’s a wealth of creativity and extraordinary hobbies and pastimes out there – these are a few we’ve spotted.
Henna Bee uses her cards to show off the amazing henna tattoos she creates.
If you fancy something more permanent, how about chainmail? We came across these photos …Continue reading this article…
