Nauli´s Monday Mood - The beauty of geometric

yesterday it was a quiet rainy Sunday in South Germany, thats why we used the Sunday afternoon for a long photosession. (Since we have a lightbox, rain does not disturb us anymore!) Taking photos of our products. We are still trying to improve our photos, still have to learn much...and the result depends on our mood. Yesterday we have been in a geometric mood...

Have a great start into your week!

And here is the result of yesterdays photosession


More Nauli Cd folios for 2 discs - mehr Cd Hüllen für 2 CDs

We though, it would be nice to have a bigger choice of 2 disc cd cases in our regular shop. This cd case is often ordered by photographers, but we didn't do much more than our orders for our shops on Dawanda and Etsy. Lately we wanted to change this and went on, cutting cardboard, bookcloth and paper, putting all together and bound some nice cd cases from it. The right packaging for one who wants to pack two discs...  Pressed and photographed are they listed in our shops now...

+ Nauli 2-disc Cd case - available at nauli.etsy.com +
+ Nauli Doppel CD Hülle gibt es bei dawanda.com/shop/Nauli +

Wir dachten es sei nett eine größere Auswahl von Doppel- Cd- Hüllen in unseren Läden zu haben. Diese Cd- Hülle wird zwar oft von Photographen bestellt, aber wir haben nie viel mehr als die bestellte Anzahl produziert. So war bisher nur ein einzelnes Modell in Nauli's Dawanda und Etsy- Laden. Nun wollten wir also die Auswahl vergrößern und haben uns an die Arbeit gemacht. Karton, Papier und Buchbindeleinen geschnitten, alles zusammengefügt ein paar schöne CD Hüllen daraus gemacht. Genau die richtige Verpackung, wenn man 2 CDs oder DVDs zusammen verpacken möchte... Gepreßt und vor die Kamera geholt sind sie jetzt in unseren Läden zu finden.

Friday Favourit

Since we collect our favourites here now, it's easy to choose the best of our week. Here you are!

Puh, not an easy choice, but this photo is full of beauty, humor and spring! We love the whole composition and would love to know the source. Is this a fashion photography, part of a stage theatre?


Nauli proudly presents... our colorful buttons - unsere bunten Knöpfe

Do you know Kraplap on Etsy? It's an amazing store where artist Petronella Luiting is offering extraordinary jewelry from buttons. She is inventing a new game: The Button Wednesday. Well, Nauli has something to submit if it comes to buttons!
We love to craft buttons! Currently you can find some of this in our Nauli shop at Dawanda.
Here we go!

Kennst Du Kraplap auf Etsy? Das ist ein ganz besonderer Laden der Designerin Petronella, die hier ganz besonderen Schmuck aus Knöpfen herstellt. Sie hat einen neuen Blogring eingeführt: The Button Wednesday. Nun ja, Nauli hat was zu zeigen, wenn es um Knöpfe geht!
Wir lieben es Knöpfe zu beziehen! Momentan findest Du unsere Knöpfe nur im Nauli Laden auf Dawanda.


Nauli proudly presents... Address books - Adressbücher

We think in times of smartphones and computer, nothing can beat the charm of a real book for our notes or addresses. That's why we decided to make a new series of colorful adress books. They are available in the shops now. Small enough to fit into a handbag and big enough, that you find it in your book shelf. On Etsy at http://nauli.etsy.com and on Dawanda at http://nauli.dawanda.de.

Wir finden gerade in Zeiten von Smartphones und Computer kommt nichts an den Charme eines richtigen Buches zum Aufschreiben für Deine Adressen heran. Und so haben wir uns an die Arbeit gemacht und eine neue Serie von Adressbüchern aufgelegt.  Alle mit robustem italienischem Buntpapier bezogen und klein genug um sie in die Handtasche zu stecken und groß genug um es im Bücherregal nicht zu übersehen.

Selection for him

Do you think it's difficult to find a good gift for your male friend or family?
Our  cd case "Can you keep a secret?" has been selected from Etsy jewelry seller Steinschmuckdesign in for her treasury Get it for him!, which hit the frontpage last night. Nauli feels honored and says a big thank you!

Fehlt es Dir auch oft an Geschenkideen für Männer? Schmuckdesignerin und Etsy - Verkäuferin Steinschmuckdesign hat sich auf die Suche gemacht und eine ganz wundervolle Auswahl getroffen. Wir fühlen uns geehrt, dass auch unsere CD Hülle "Can you keep a secret" mit in der Wahl ist und schicken ein großes Dankeschön in die Schweiz!


Short trip to Berlin

Last weekend half of Nauli did a very short trip to Berlin - actually it was a very, very, very short trip. Much too short, but still there is something to share. A dear friend guided us to Flohmarkt am Mauerpark - a fleemarket which has changed into a kind of handmade market - placed in Prenzlauer Berg. A big area is for handmade design and art: We found handmade cloths, colorful accessoires like bags, jewelry from lego, paper goods and art prints, paintings... and someone is selling yummy freshly made fruit juice.

Last Sunday weather was not promising for an outdoor market, but it was totally worth to use our short time for a walk there. And someone told us, that it can be very full on sunny days, so maybe we've been lucky with this weather!

We will definitely come again. Maybe as sellers?


Colors of Nature - Nauli's Flickr Favourites

Nature is providing us all colors we can imagine. Sometimes we feel surprised when we consider a color as not natural. Yes, we know, this fishs are not dyed by humans!

Let's go... - Nauli's Monday Mood

Join us for a short travel! Let's pack our bag, don't forget to take your documents. Then we take the train and if we are there, we rent a bike and drive it through the sunny day. And we don't forget to send a postcard for our friends!

Alles neu macht der Mai...

(photosource: thefakestat)
In Germany we have an old folksong from the beginning of the 19th century. "Alles neu macht der Mai..." is dedicated to Spring. People leave the house to feel the nature and enjoy flowers... We also have the tradition of spring-clean. Well, it's May and we thought the Nauli Blog could get a new face. What do you think?


Nauli hearts Paper Art

Browsing through our blogroll, we came across with the nice blog of lamarquisedesangesSabine is one of our favourite Etsy - artists. She is running a little French Boutique, named lamarquisedesanges, where she sells beautiful fashion, which she gives her very own dreamy touch. Her blog is always worth a visit. But this this time she leads us to the blog and shop of Sydney Based Graphic Designer, Justine. Sabine, thanks a lot for this!

Nauli is going to sail the seas

Two weeks ago we worked on a very special order. One of our customers asked us to realize a ship's log for a friend. We loved the idea - and we are planning to make a series of logbooks now for our nauli.etsy.com and nauli.dawanda.de. But this very first and custom made one is worth to document.
Vor zwei Wochen haben wir an einem ganz besonderen Auftrag gearbeitet. Eine unserer Kundinnen bat uns ein Logbuch für einen Freund herzustellen. Uns gefiel die Idee und wir werden wohl eine Serie dieser Bücher für die Nauli Läden bei Etsy und Dawanda herstellen. Doch hier ist die Dokumentation dieses ganz speziellen ersten...

The colour should be brown on pale. We bound a beautiful book with a pale front cover and a patterned back cover. Just like for our Once upon a Time CD case. This is having a great ancient like look. Especially as the paper pattern is a very old one. Then we carved a linocut in bold letters and printed it on the book.
Die Farbe sollte braun auf hell sein, so wie bei unserer Cd Hülle Once upon a Time. Wir haben ein schönes Buch mit einfarbigem vorderen Buchdeckel und gemusterter Rückseite gebunden. Das alte italienische Muster gibt dem Buch einen speziellen Touch. Dann wurde ein Linolschnitt mit großen Lettern geschnitzt und auf das Buch gedruckt.
So happy to hear, that the new owner of this very special ship's log was stunned.
Wie schön zu hören, dass der Beschenkte ganz begeistert war, von seinem so persönlichen Logbuch.


Happiness inside or outside

Today I found this artprint by Ashkahn & Co. (available at shopshopa.com) at thenewdomestic.
Heute habe ich auf thenewdomestic diesen Kunstdruck von Ashkahn & Co. (erhältlich bei shopshopa.com) gefunden. 
The title "tears" confuse me. This print looks cute, and made me smile. If it would have the name raindrops everything would be ok for me. But it can be consoling seeing tears the cute way.
Der Titel "Tränen" löste eine leichte Verwirrung bei mir aus. Der Druck hat so eine niedliche Anmutung und brachte mich zum Lächeln, der Titel passte in meinen Augen überhaupt nciht. Aber vielleicht kann es manchmal heilsam sein, Tränen auf diese Weise zu sehen.
Looking a bit further, I found this artwork by Chad Hagen:
Später fand ich dann dieses Werk von Chad Hagen:
Tell me, what do you read there? I couldn't believe what I read. So wrong again! This letters are cute, funny, happy but they really mean Ugh!
So much happiness in the design of both works, that the meaning is not coming through again. Art should confuse us sometimes - which can be done the very simple way.
Na, was liest Du da? Ich konnte gar nicht fassen, dass da Ugh steht! Schon wieder paßt das gesehene mit dem gelesenen überhaupt nicht überein. 

I think, this kind of feeling surprised but the other way around is what happens if someone opens our black cd case with the colourful lining. It's so clean and bold black from outside, but if you open it, you find a colourful, cute, surprising inside. Something you didn't expect.
Vielleicht ist es ja eine Überraschung in die andere Richtung, die passiert, wenn jemand unsere schwarze CD Hülle mit dem bunten Futter öffnet. Sie ist so clean und schwarz und wenn man sie öffnet, findet man eine bunte und fröhliche Überraschung darin. Etwas, das man einfach nicht erwartet.


If You Want A Rainbow - Nauli's Mondaymoodboard

After some sunny days in April, the May starts with a quiet rainy weekend.
But Nauli is having the positive aspects in mind.
We will have a quiet productive week. No sunshine outside makes us stay at home create and produce.

And keep in your mind:
If We want a rainbow, we have to put up with the rain.

Nauli and ... floral trends

Looking around at tumblr we found out, that our spring collection of cd cases is so trendy! Unbelievable, as all are made from old Italian paper, which was originally designed for lining furniture long, long time ago.
But have a look by yourself! We wish you a great Sunday!

Beim herumstöbern auf tumblr sind wir diesen Schuhen begegnet. Nauli liegt mit der CD Hüllen Frühlingskollektion offenbar im Trend :) Unglaublich, wenn man bedenkt, dass sie ganz aus Italienischen Papieren besteht, die vor langer, langer Zeit mal für das Auskleiden von Möbeln entworfen wurden. Seht selbst! Und einen schönen Sonntag!
