We have had the privilege of creating beautiful flowers for weddings recently. Such an exciting time for the bride and groom and we feel so blessed to be trusted with making flowers for such special occasions.
Each bouquet or buttonhole has to be as perfect as we can make them and collaboration with the bride and groom is essential. We always feel a sense of pride when they are completed and delivered and the bride is happy and excited with her flowers.
The bride chose bright dotty blooms in various sizes for herself, a bright joyous posy for her flower girl and dreamy pastel shades for bridesmaids. The groom had a special buttonhole with an excerpt from a meaningful book whilst the groomsmen’s buttonholes reflected the same pastels as the bridesmaids.
As a bonus the flowers are everlasting and those memories can be kept for years as a reminder of your wedding day.
As 2017 comes to a close we reflect upon our achievements and what we have learnt about our craft and ourselves. We wish to be kinder in our approach and gentle on the environment. A simple way of life unencumbered by clutter and excess. Over the past four years we have gathered a tribe of folk who understand our philosophy of repurposing paper and gifted objects into creating paper flowers and paper craft.
As artists we also need to evolve, experiment and give ourselves space to create. To slow down and immerse ourselves in the creative process. We have taken the decision to not attend markets in 2018 but to concentrate on events and continue to sell through the wonderful handmade collective that is Far Fetched Designs in Seddon.
Our home studio in Bonbeach will be open throughout 2018 so please feel free to contact us at any time for an appointment at email@example.com
To all of you who have supported us, thank you. We would like to wish you and yours a wonderful festive season.
So excited and pumped to have our first ever full page editorial in a national magazine. Junkies Magazine is Australian and located in Ballarat in rural Victoria. Its philosophy is simple, rethink, reuse, reduce and recycle and encapsulates everything our business stands for. As a community we all need to reduce waste and repurpose materials and give them a new life.
So with Christmas bearing down on us why not think about a subscription to Junkies Magazine either for yourself or someone you love. It will be inspiring, magical and full of ideas, some you will already know but others that will inspire you to rethink outside the square in an effort for us all to minimise our carbon footprint and create a gentler, kinder and more environmentally safer world for future generations
November will see us travel across Bass Strait to Deloraine in Tasmania for the Tasmanian Craft Fair. Four days where an entire town devotes itself to creative souls and handmade goodness.

The Fair is organised by the Rotary Club of Deloraine and has been running for 36 years and is spread across 8 venues and 5 galleries throughout the picturesque town of Deloraine. Free shuttle buses depart each venue regularly.
We will be comfortably located at venue 2 in the Deloraine Bowls Club, exhibit 205

Our family Christmas theme was “Make, Bake or Create” this Christmas and I had the task of trying to make something for the girl who makes all things paper. What to make, and then I had an idea, when Brooke was little she enjoyed her ballet lessons and the end of year concert was “The Nutcracker”.
On a recent trip to Ballarat trawling through the many op shops there I cam across a Little Golden Book “The Nutcracker” and had tucked it away thinking I would use the pages for origami. The cover design was so lovely so how to incorporate the cover into something made. It naturally lent itself to being a roof so the Little Golden Book paper house was born.
But not only is it decorative it is also functional as one half of the little roof opens so that treasures can be tucked inside.
Markets will commence with our first market scheduled for February 19th at Seaford Handmade Market. We have been developing new ideas over the summer break and will be excited to show you our new creations. We will update our market itinerary each month.
We had the privalege of creating bridal bouquets for our first wedding in December 2016. Thanks to Shannon and Matt for choosing everlasting paper bridal flowers for their wedding, they looked gorgeous
