The Week in Bonbons: Over the Moon


I have to admit, I get really excited by seeing people in their "bonbons"...for example, take a look at Marichelle, above, in her new Buddha Necklace...she's the sexiest do-gooder I've seen in a loooong time.

And somehow, I just found this incredibly sweet post she wrote back in February about the Oiseau packaging. Flattered (and then some!) because...a. I am obsessed with our packaging. (My assistant rolls her eyes) b. I am always trying to come up with better, more wonderful ways to create an experience for the, uhh, opener of the package. Maybe I can get some sleep now. But we did make some changes since then (told you I was obsessed.)P. wrote about it too in full support of cherry blossoms and mother's day...I saw this one right away and was really over the moon at P's gorgeous photos and overall feelings of bonbon satisfaction...I need to pay closer attention to what people are saying...

because then, when I was looking for that post again (disorganized=me), I just came across this from Modish: how cool! And then this by Two Brunettes over on Design Lovely which also made me super happy- they put bonbon together with...other pretty things! So nice!
Sometimes running a business can be a little less than fun, it can be hard and tiring and the pay-off isn't always apparent. But seeing my work making other people happy sends me over the moon. It's a real "oh yeah" moment, "this is why I do it". It feels great, I'll just admit it. Thanks for indulging me...

pssst...tomorrow I'll be at the glorious Brooklyn Flea allll day so come on over and say hi!

your work is definitely well-loved all over! and your product is so beautiful, but the packaging is almost as delightful to receive! i'll never forget how sweet mine was when my earrings came in the mail. i almost did not want to open the lovely package. :)

i, too, am obsessed with packaging and have been bits and piecing it together for so long...8mm is ready for a revamp: starting with the logo! which we're just getting together...and then, paper, tissue, boxes, ribbon, stickers, etc etc etc...
