wedding project II - guest book

first non-card related project!  a loris & b style wedding guest book cover - made of silk dupion, decorated with mini-fabric bunting, and names/date details on edged card.

possibly another one for etsy.com in the new year....


wedding project I - cards 

new cards, created for a good friend's beautiful winter wedding.

one thought is to sell these designs on etsy.com in the new year, as valentines cards - but there is no specific target market for these yet (nor are they on sale anywhere):

tis the season!

at last! some photos of christmas cards - on sale at gabinete, conejo blanco (condesa) & conejo blanco (san angel):

christmas update coming soon - promise!

apologies - bit behind on the blog.  fortunately this is mostly due to time spent making christmas cards and on an exciting small wedding-related project.  photo updates in the next day or so, honest!

now online at etsy.com!

further to the previous post, there's now a (very small) loris & b shop on etsy.com, selling a small selection of cards in packs of 3, and gift tags in packs of 5.

do check it out!  www.lorisandb.etsy.com

the original bunting!

seen here in situ on a lovely sunny autumn day in dorridge, not all that far from where it was originally deployed...

onwards & upwards

right, it's this week or never - etsy.com, here we come!

just one problem - to register as a seller, usernames need to be alphanumeric and, it seems, don't have spaces (though you can use CAPS to distinguish words).

"loris&b" is not allowed;
"lorisandb" doesn't really work; and
"LorisAndB" looks odd.

any thoughts??

loris and rabbit no. 2

delightfully, on returning from england (having stocked up on some beautiful papers from cath kidston, paperchase & oliver bonas) the other branch of conejo blanco has asked for cards too.  this is the branch at museo de arte carillo gil (av. revolucion 1608, san angel).

in the meantime, it's about time to upload more photos.  they're more or less the same designs, but show some of the pretty new papers and colours:

back from hols!  
and for anyone wondering what a loris actually is...

this is a slender loris (loris tardigradus), a primate related to lemurs.  and of course, there is that video on youtube of a slow loris being tickled... here it is again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9f-6jygRJk

loris and the rabbit

more great loris news - cards should soon also be going on sale at the lovely bookshop/cafe/gallery conejo blanco in colonia condesa (amsterdam 67, esq. parras).

in the meantime, here are some pics of the first cards to go on sale at gabinete in colonia roma (see prev. post)
nb. the actual bunting/birthday cards on sale at gabinete do not say happy birthday - there's just bunting:

trial sale of loris & b cards!
lovely news loris-watchers - a first trial sale of loris & b's cards!  they'll be at a beautiful boutique in colonia roma called gabinete, on alvaro obregon (edificio balmori, 101-f, esquina con orizaba).

fingers crossed all goes well... will upload photos of the cards for the trial sale, most likely when back from hols...

30 August 2010

at last! a little taster of our first few samples - more soon (perhaps even ones not involving cakes!) ...

29 August 2010
