10 Christmas cards with an Aussie twist

It’s only 5 weeks until Christmas!

Christmas is my favourite time of year. As soon as the stores hang up their tinsel and fairy lights I start playing my Christmas playlist and start unpacking our Christmas decorations.

The way we celebrate Christmas is so very different than our friends in the northern hemisphere. It is generally hot, we spend a lot of time in the pool and we chow down on cold meats, salad and a big ‘ole pavlova.

As our experience is different it always seems a little weird to send cards depicting a white Christmas with snowmen and snowflakes and…well…snow! So I’ve tracked down a few Aussie Christmas cards that depict a Christmas down under. Enjoy!

Kim’s Little Monsters

Sometimes, when you’ve had a bad day, you just need a few words of encouragement to pick yourself up and dust yourself off. Kim Welling’s sweet little Instant Comfort Pocket Boxes will do the trick. Oh and she also does Christmas postcards too!




Pencil Shavings Studio

Not only are these notebooks super cute, they are also really bright and colourful. If there is one thing a notebook should be it’s colourful, right? These gorgeous notebooks are from Pencil Shavings Studio and they sure would make a great stocking stuffer (hint, hint ;))




15 nice, bright offices

I have a problem. I’m addicted to Pinterest. I could spend days and days and days pinning things that inspire me. I’m a visual person so curating boards is like heaven for me.

While on Pinterest I’ve been amassing a collection of my favourite offices and creative spaces. Today I give you 15 of the loveliest, most inspiring office setups using the classic combination of black and white. (Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest!)















8 of the sweetest wedding cake toppers

If you’re looking for that final piece of wedding flair to round-out your wedding celebrations a paper wedding topper is the ticket. Not only do they look super cute, they’ll also last for ages so you’ll have another reminder from your big day. Of course they don’t have to be used for weddings – the artists below have other, general options you can choose instead.

Hello fans of all things paper. How are you? I hope you are having a lovely Monday.

In the spirit of using pretty stationery as a means to get through the longest day of the week I present to you my very favourite notebooks from my friends at Nation State. While choosing a favourite over all of my other favourites would be an epic task I will say that I’m crushing pretty hard on the RIFLE Paper Co journals of late.

Wedding Wednesday – Ian Collins

Absolutely gorgeous wedding suite made by very clever (and hands-on) bride (Christine) and groom (Ian). It was designed and made using a home printer and a rented laser cutter/engraver. Very crafty and fun.

I love the idea of giving guests a field guide showing flora and fauna in the area where the wedding took place. Very cool idea. I also love the interactivity of the invitation where guests could pop up the trees to get into the spirit of a wedding in the woods.
