Imaginary Animal giveaway – Ended

We are very excited to work with artists David & Marie from The museum of Imaginary Animals. When I first saw their hand soaps on Fine Little Day I supposed I got such a cravings I almost fainted so when they later contacted us to become a sponsor we where thrilled!

You two have a fantastic way of meeting – please give us a the story
We met through a mutual friend who encouraged us send mail to each other (we were living hundreds of miles apart at the time). Marie sent David a typewritten letter and David sent Marie a collaged postcard. Later, we met in person for the first time at the same friend’s wedding. Our first collaboration was installing the wedding decorations. It was a great success! For a whole year we sent collages, drawings, postcards and decorated packages back and forth across several states. Finally, we decided to join forces and save postage. Now we share a little studio in and collaborate on all sorts of fun projects.

You started out and are both artists – How do you come up with all the great ideas like making hand soap?

First artists then designers, we enjoy creating products that are intriguing, useful and often humorous. Handsoap began as a sculpture by Marie which incorporated thousands of doll hands cast in soap… Now it’s our most popular product! We are inspired by all sorts of things… Nature, music, movies, hairstyles, mysterious objects, strange stories and experiences, etc. Since we like to make funny products, often something that inspires us also makes us laugh. One idea or experiment usually leads to another… The more we create the more ideas we get!

Are all the things in the shop made by you?
Almost everything in our shop is handmade by us. The only exception is our paper goods, which feature our artwork and photography professionally printed on sustainable sourced paper.

What are your favorite products?
We are especially excited about some new kids tee designs and our Wool Cloud Trivets. Everyone has fun with Old Friends Magnets and we love writing messages on our Short Conversation and Sad Puppy notepads.

And now – The Giveaway it will be open between Monday 14th of January until Thursday 19th of January: One winner will receive a $20 (USD) Gift Certificate to spend at Imaginary Animal.

Oh, I want it all! But especially the Flower Burst tee – it would look very, very
cute on my baby girl.

January 14, 2013 at 00:40

LOVE the “this is all muscle” kids tee!!

Oh wow… Really tricky choosing a favorite! It’s all mega cool and beautiful. LOVE the stripy tunic and ALL the cushions. Love.

I just LOVE those hand soaps! They are really cute and come with the added bonus of totally creeping the sh*t out of my boyfriend.

AND I’m quite surprised they ship worldwide, I always get exited with these kinds of shops and then the disappointment of US-only shipping is quite harsh

Woow! Detta är svårt alltså. Jag brukar få gå in på en hemsida en si så där hundra gånger innan jag känner att jag kan säga “den där är min favorit!”. Kanske är det historikern i mig, att undersöka och titta från olika perspektiv ;) hehe! Skämt om sido, så här in the heat of the moment så tror jag att min favorit bland dessa fina saker är flugorna, eller Mini Bows om vi ska vara internationella. Supercoola och söta!

What a lovely shop :) The hand soaps are a really cute and fun idea. i also love all the bright coloured bows, cloud coasters and fun notepad illustrations!

The magnets, they are really the best!! Love to join in!

January 14, 2013 at 13:41

I LOVE the hand soaps. so funny. so sweet. and a little evil at the same time. Perfect!

January 14, 2013 at 14:51

Oh, so hard to choose! But I think i like the Silly Pencils the best, I want them all! (But especially “Dogs are people too”, “I use this pencil to stir my coffee” and “You have something in your teeth”) They would be perfect as small gifts for friends to brighten up grey days!

I love the cloud coaster! I think I’d put it on my wall though : )

January 14, 2013 at 17:29

I love everything! I especially love the Old Friends magnets…such a fantastic idea! :)

January 14, 2013 at 17:58

This is a tough one between handsoaps and the wooly cloud coasters! Maybe the coasters though, they would look perfects in out kitchen.

I would choose Grumpy Camel Rubber Stamp. I love different crafts and such stamps. This one is special because me and my friend used to write short stories about two camels. Every day one of us wrote a new story. Our camels always had a lot of adventures and met a lot of friends. We loved them and continue to write them for about a year. This stamp brought the memories back!

The This Is All Muscle – Kids Tee is so cool! Love love love it!

January 14, 2013 at 20:41

January 14, 2013 at 22:01

I LOVE it all, but i´d have to say the cute cat kids tee – for my little cat lover here at home :)

January 14, 2013 at 22:01

I love the hand soaps and the kitten tees. Lots of great stuff. :)

January 15, 2013 at 07:06

I love the old friends magnets, but then the zombie cat notebook is on a close second place.

January 15, 2013 at 07:09

i just love those hand soaps thanks for the chance

January 15, 2013 at 08:14

I love all of the things they make. One favorite is the White Confetti Tank. :)

January 15, 2013 at 09:58

Aaawwww. Cute and quirky it is, that shop!
It’s hard to pick a favourite with the baby hands soap waving at me from everywhere. However as a favourite I’d say the triangle cushions are a contender! Thanks for sharing and for the give-away.

Hi there
I like the ‘silly pencils’! Not just the product name is very convincing! The soaps aren’t bad at all either…
Thanx, nic

I have always loved the hand soap! My friends think it’s creepy but I think they’re being unimaginative.
