Getting ready for the Holiday Season

 

Ho Ho Ho friends. Are you already getting prepared for the Holiday Season? It’s mid of October, and we are slowly turning up the heater as days are getting colder. Since a few weeks, shelves are being filled up with sugar cookies, chocolate and co, while shopping malls started playing jingle bells on repeat. Although, you might still think about your last summer vacation, very soon the actual Christmas shopping season starts and before you know it you’ll find yourself rushing from store to store to find a suitable gift for your loved ones.

Already last year and actually also the years before, you told yourself, ‘next year I’ll start earlier!’ Let me tell you one thing – Now is the time exploring what’s out there. We assume you are searching for something unique, like you were last year, except it turned out differently than you anticipated.. The shops were packed, jingle bells kept on repeating, the pretty things were already sold out, you started to get all stressed and sweaty, cause Christmas was the day after tomorrow, of course. Finally you found the ultimate gift for your mum, sister and best friend, yet it appeared that the ultimate gift happened to be a vase, your mum, sister and best friend either already had, or got it in a different color. Yeah, you definitely had thought that through. But hey, you can return it right. Good luck with rushing back, getting all stressed and annoyed again, as the return process looks not any different than the purchasing hassle.

This year’s different. This year, you’ll gonna do some serious unique gift shopping and the emphasize lies on u-n-i-q-u-e. This year, you’ll impress your friends and family with interior decor that makes a statement. This year, you are not going to sweat running from store to store. This year, you’ll sit on your sofa with a glass of wine, jingle bells playing softly in the background (mhh maybe not) and your laptop. The only thing that is required from you is clicking the check-out button. Sounds pretty easy right? Or maybe you don’t need a gift, because it’s your turn to host this year’s Christmas family dinner and you want to impress your loved ones with proper festive table decor rather than the paper tablecloth you used 3 years ago? We can help you.

Mahalolena has a selection of beautiful handmade clay coasters for a superb addition to your interior styling, table top decoration or as unique Christmas gift that guests will love. We guarantee the wow effect and happy mums, sisters, girlfriends and best friends. Now, click here and enjoy having a look around and start shopping.

Christmas Wrapping Madness & Etsy Updates

Christmas wrapping Madness_5 Christmas Wrapping Madness_2

Happy 4th Advent. It’s almost Christmas. Are you celebrating Christmas in your culture? In Germany, we do – big time. Therefore, a few days before Christmas Night, it’s Christmas wrapping madness at home.

Today, I spent the whole day on wrapping all those great presents for my family and loved ones. I wouldn’t post about it, if I didn’t like gift wrapping. I love it! Christmas music playing in the background, a homemade hot chocolate with lots of cream and ‘ribbon salad’ on the table. Pure chaos, but creative. I spare you the behind the scenes images. I’d rather show you what Santa and I have been doing today.

Furthermore, I’ve got some updates on Etsy. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I have been busy developing new designs for my lovely table top accessories. Today, I can share with you the new design. What do you think?

I’m crazy about the sprinkles. Somehow I got inspired by chocolate sprinkles for on the bread. Yes, don’t ask me how one can be inspired by that. Anyways, here we go, Brushstroke Moon Coasters. Perfect for the Christmas table decoration or for your New Year’s Eve celebrations. There is more to come. I’m open for color inspiration. What main colors would you like to see and get for your own table top decor? Share your ideas in the comment box and I will try to consider it for the next product developments.

Have a lovely Christmas and a good start into the new year.

Mahalolena on Etsy

Hello Etsy_Final

Hello and Happy Sunday! Today, I’m announcing some big news. As you probably can already guess from the picture – Mahalolena is now on Etsy. Yay!

I’ve often get asked why I don’t have an Etsy Shop and I’ve asked myself the very same question again and again. My answer always has been ‘I’ve not enough time and I’m afraid I suck’. Therefore, I parked the idea somewhere in the back of my head, yet it kept on bugging me and my excitement got eventually bigger than the fear. So here I am, with my own Etsy Shop. It kind of feels overwhelming to finally push the ‘live’ button. It took me a while to make this step, but now it feels like a good moment to share it with you all.

So right on time for Christmas, I bring you my starter collection of handmade interior decor accessories – finely crafted clay coasters. Here’s a little peak of a few of my products but click here to see the rest of the Mahalolena Shop.
