Fabulous news just in, Creatives! The masterminds behind one of my fave brands, Opus Design, are launching a brand new e-commerce website today. What does that mean for you? Online Shopping! I had the pleasure of touring the Opus Design Co store in Paddington back in April and not only will goodies from this store feature on the website, but the other two stores (Opus Paddington and Octopus) will also be showing off their wares!

a chat with stationery goddess jayde leeder

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 8.57.59 PM

Jayde Leeder is one busy gal. Not only is she a mother to two little ones (six-year-old Iggy and 14-month-old Minty – who Jayde tells me suffers from FOMO and thinks she’s 27), but she co-owns my fave store for all things stationery, Little Paper Lane, in the Sydney suburb of Mona Vale. I sat down with the former makeup artist and learnt a few things about stationery, running a family business and her hatred of tomatoes!

Sometimes you stumble across a creative who truly epitomises the concept of making it big and living the dream. Case in point – Melbourne-based Jenna Spence from Mister Moss – who took her genius creation and turned it into a fully-fledged business, producing a product that I’m currently going gaga over. I took five with this creative to get the lowdown on these glorious hanging plants and how it all came together.

working the rustic roadside ladder

P1060112

I always let out a little chuckle when homewares mags say they ‘just found this piece on the side of the road’ (of course you did!). But I was left trying to convince people of the same thing when I found this amazing rustic ladder across the road during a council cleanup (ok homewares mags, I’ll let you off this time).
