December work

Hey!
I know it’s been a lot of talk about the work we do in our shop lately here on the blog. But it is December and that is the best time of the year for our online shop. So it’s inevitable.

acdcYesterday my mom came over to bake with the kids so Jens and I could pack the orders from this past week.

Today Viola and I are going to go to the movies to see the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. Last time we were to the movies we promised ourselves to go more often, that was 1 year ago at the Star Wars film. Time flies.
That’s it for now.

Remember our coloring book?

coloringbook168A few years back Jens and I made a coloring book. Perhaps you remember?
It was a crowdfunding project and thanks to all our backers it was made possible. ( Read about it here!)
We named the coloring book “El Coloring Book Ridiculoso – a coloring book based on Jenny’s photo” (Because we love long and ridiculous titles)
Today there are so many fun and alternative coloring books. But this was 3 years ago and back then they were not as common.

Anyhow I have a couple of boxes left and I’m putting them back up in our shop.

Here’s some text from the project:

“We love what we do, Jens and I. Photographing and illustrating.
But we’re not in love with the idea of spending 2200 dollars on something that won’t sell. We’ve been there before. Trust me it’s no fun when your mom is the only one saying “I’ll buy one!”

It is risky investing money in a product. Especially when you are a small business like Jens and I.
We need 2200 dollars to cover the printing costs of 1000 copies.

I would hate having those copies collecting dust in our wardrobe. That´s why we are asking for your support. We want to know:

  • Would you buy this coloring book?
    If so show us by contributing.”

Here’s the promotion video we made to get our project going.

This was so much fun and remanissing about it makes me want to do another crowdfunding project.

The tree is in the house

…and she is looking good.
Viola decided on an all red decor and Frank got to put the angel on top.

Now I’m going to watch the Gringe (or perhaps Elf) and wrap gifts with Viola. By the way I’m very excited about my Christmas shopping so far. I’ve managed to find a lot second hand and done some great deals online. I’m a pretty thrifty gal.

Cheers
