Kirigami, I love you

January 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by monica

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…

Who do you love?

January 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Denise

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:

Doing something different

January 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by Denise

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 this idea appeals, check out more of her photos, she’s created some beautiful designs.

If you fancy something more permanent, how about chainmail? We came across these photos …Continue reading this article…

Friday photo niceness (and happy holidays!)

December 2007, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Sunny

Time for a round up of some of the great MOO photography we’ve spotted out there recently. A relaxing little read for a Friday afternoon…

Look at these lovely designs for Stickers, by shutterblog! Nice subtle colours and strong graphics make for great Stickers to be used on envelopes and gift bags.

piktorama* is a MOO designer, and these are some of the lovely Postcards she’s made, using her own designs.

Gumby and Pokey are old MOO friends (scroll!), and look – they like Stickers too! This photo was taken by horizontal.integration

Do you ever wish computer commands would hop off the computer and into your real life? Well, Flickr …Continue reading this article…

You know what else?

But enough about me.

Hello

Well, our marvellous judges have judged, and our hardworking database bees have totted up the totals… and it’s time to announce the winners of MOO’s Super-Duper Holiday Card Competition.

We have four winners, one in each category: Best Photo, Best Non-Photo, Best Selling and Funniest.

We’ve also picked six runners up – entries that were in the running up to the very shortest of shortlists. This is to make the …Continue reading this article…

Blimey. a non-happy day at MOO

November 2007, by stefan | 10 Comments – latest by Denise

Well, it’s nearly over, but that was the kind of day that CTOs tell their children at night if they want them to be daredevil stuntmen when they grow up instead.

Starting at around 6pm last night, we started experiencing beeeg trouble with our main disk array. All the alarms went off, and Mike, our Techy Infradoodads Manager dashed down to Brick Lane to recover it from the backup. It took almost about 20 hours to get the site fully operational (direct uploads were particularly stubborn) but things are now fine again.

I’m sorry to everyone who tried to place orders today and had trouble -we had a number of false starts where we thought we had it working and then …Continue reading this article…

Retro Rhinestone Moo

November 2007, by Kim | 4 Comments – latest by fiona

Quite a lot of the MOO Crew here in London grew up in the 1980s. We’ve managed to get over legwarmers, ra-ra skirts and Flock of Seagulls hairdos,* but we got really nostalgic after we received an email about the Rubik’s Cube this week.

My picture cube

Isn’t that just totally rad? … Bueller? … Anyone?

Matt has made his very own custom Rubik’s Cube, using a special self assembly kit and a MOO StickerBook! Not only did he send us pictures of the finished article, but he also sent us a link to video of how to put your own custom Rubik’s Cube …Continue reading this article…
