Countdown for Paris

Our Paris Trip is coming soon! We already collect a lot of usefull tips here. Thanks all, who already told us their Paris experience and shared their tips! You all entered our giveaway for our upcoming "Paris" -product! As we are only for five days there, we will have to sort out, which one is possible to follow, but honestly, we wanna do all! And it feels like, why can't we stay for two weeks? Well, we might run out of money...

In the meantime we discovered some great blogs about Paris as well who even make us want to go more!
For the one who wanna go, too... We want to share them and give you the links:

Blogger and Photographer Littlebrownpen is having a full blog dedicated to Paris... Great photos!!! Some of them are sold on littlebrownpen.etsy

At Spottet by Locals we find a huge bunch of tips for almost every area in Paris. Very practical, as the categories are sorted by areas.
  [photo by Tory Hoen at Hipparis]
Hipparis is a great collaboration blog as well. Great Photos are combined with practical information. Written by some American Paris lovers and their guest blogger.
And there is Pia Jane Bijkerk's Blog, which is having a whole Paris Category as well.  She recently made a book called Paris: Made by Hand. The announcement looks promising. And we got suggestions from some sides to buy. But unfortunately shipping time seems to be too long for getting it on time. So we wait for someone else to review it! MyBlackBook is having a section called Bonjour Paris, where the owner shares great photos and some Paris tips.

Do you have more tips for us? Some really personal secrets about Paris?
Please share! Your tip is counted as an entry for our giveaway. You can win a Paris related Nauli item from paper... Let yourself be surprised!


Dancing on Ice

Nauli took some photos yesterday. Yes, our shop NauliKnits.etsy.com really has to stock up! And luckily many cold evenings this winter make it possible to stock up. See the one Nauli sister dancing on ice wearing Charlene's hat and Charlene's scarf in adorable grey ...

You will find this adorable Charlene's scarf matching to Charlene's hat at nauliknits, soon.
P.S. The coat is handknitted as well but not for sale :)

Winter in the Alps - We took the Challenge!

Kristal from the rikrak studio announced the ekphrastic-challenge-part-two. This time Riopelle is choosen as the artist to inspire. (Click here to see the generated colour palette.) Nauli took the challenge! We call our new CD cover design "Winter in the Alps". It's an artistic four coloured linocut on a blank Nauli Cd Case. This linocut print will be available on our Accordion Photo Books soon. 
Kristal von  the rikrak studio  hat the ekphrastic-challenge-part-two ausgerufen. Dieses Mal ist Riopelle der Künstler, der inspirieren sollte. (Klicke hier für nähere Infos.) Nauli hat die Herausforderung angenommen! Unser neues CD Cover Design heißt "Winter in den Alpen". Es ist ein künstlerischer vierfarbiger Linolschnitt auf einer einfarbigen Nauli CD Hülle. In Kürze gibt es diesen Linolschnitt Druck auch auf unseren Leporellos.

Paris is calling... share your tips and win!

Paris calling, originally uploaded by IrenaS.
The Nauli crew and boyfriends will go to Paris end of this month! We are excited. Just today I found this: Holly from Decor8's is asking her followers for the best tipps, as her friend will visit Paris, too... We like the idea... we had asked for an accomodation tipp at the Etsy Europeanstreetteam mailing list already and got great tips. So, why not doing it more public? So more people could read your tips?

Share your Paris experience with us! Tell us, what we shouldn't miss on our 5 days trip and why?
We've booked a small Apartement in Saint Germain.

Nauli is currently working on a new product. Top secret. But very Paris connected. If you share your tips until the 26th of February 2010 you can win this surprise product! We promise, you'll love it, if you love Paris! And it will be sent the same day as it goes to the shops.


Can you keep a secret?

Can you keep a secret is the topic of the currently running Etsy European Street team challenge.
We can! We made Nauli CD Case in the new solid black design. And printed a simple keyhole linocut on it.
Kannst Du ein Geheimnis bewahren? So lautet die Herausforderung der Woche des Etsy European Street Teams. Wir können! Wir haben eine Nauli CD Hülle in schwarz gemacht und ein Schlüsselloch mit Linolschnitt darauf gedruckt.
If you open the CD Cover, you will find a big surprise. The red lining with cute graphic flowers... a sweet secret, isn't it?
Wenn Du die schwarze CD-Hülle öffnest, kommt eine große Überraschung zum Vorschein. Das Futter ist ein fröhliches Florentiner Muster mit roten graphischen Blumen. Ein süßes Geheimnis, nicht wahr?
The weekly Etsy Europeanstreetteam Challenge for this week is hostet by Toosis.
