So here’s what has been in my advent calendar so far:
Day 1: it’s shower gel but with an individual sticker, apparently you can upload your own cover and have it printed and send to your local drugstore, Eulchendusche roughly translates to owlet shower with Eulchen being the diminutive of Eule (German for owl) and my nickname.
Day 2: A folder featuring many, many owls
Day 3: A little box printed with owls, inside an owl lip balm and a keychain
Day 4: Owl socks
Day 5: (not pictured) - Cocoa for pad coffee machines, two pencils with owl pattern
So, what do you think?
Owls confirmed to be the creepiest birds ever. LOOK AT THE FUCKING THINGS. If you fail to notice the one on the left fucking SWALLOWING a rat, then you have the dude singing some satanic chant or something next to him, and then you have those two other fucking psychos synchronized to make you feel creeped the fuck out with their soulless dance of FUCKING DOOM.
Featured Artist of the Month | December
This month’s featured Artist offers a wide range of owlish products (although I recommend to take a look at the other stuff, too, especially the fox is adorable).
Mika is an US-based freelancing artist for all things clothing and especially accessories.
After getting her degree in design from the Fashion Institute in Los Angeles she went to work at Paul Frank Industries for several years. In 2006 she started her label Cuore and was named a finalist in Fred Flare’s “Next Big Thing 2007”.
It takes only one look at her owls to fall completely in love with them, it’s not only about the details and the craft itself but the love with which they are made, very much noticeable alone by the biographies each of the owls has.
Stewart, for example, likes to sit in his tree and ponder life while Rei Rei loves to shop for furniture to perch on at flea markets and play records to flap her wings to.
(Seriously, how adorable is it to have detailed and elaborate biographies for the plushies you’re crafting? I give you a hint: Very)
There’s much more plushies/pillows, though. There are Christmas cards, there are bags and Christmas stockings and just wait until you see the cotton pencil cases!
So if you’re still looking for Christmas presents or would like to allow yourself a treat (let’s be honest, we don’t do that enough), head over to Cuore and be prepared to fall in love.
