|Here's a shot the lovely Magali |
from Beau Est Mien snapped for us.
(I am loving my new dress from
Petra Vanessie - thank you Petra x)
On Friday I got to take her out to visit some of my favourite handmade shops here in Perth - Beau Est Mien, Perth Upmarket at Angove Street Collective, Future Shelter, Mr Sparrow and we finished the day at the Dumbo Feather launch at MANY 6160 in Fremantle - where I got to meet and chat with Madeline and Mele from Dumbo Feather and Kate of Kate & Abel.
There were a few 'fangirl' moments - snapping photos and asking her to sign the beautiful copy of Uppercase she gifted me. She really is the sweetest person and such an inspiration! It is a day I will treasure always!
A group of awesome designers and makers from Perth teamed up to put together this lovely 'welcome to Perth' pack to surprise Janine with...
Isn't it a lovely collection of goodies? There's... conversation coasters and a lovely letterpressed art card from fluid ink, a sweet crocheted owl from Anna Hadwin, two beautiful dresses from Petra Vanessie, delicious soap and balm from Self Organics, a surprise from Petals & Thread, yummy Cacao & Raspberry logs from O'Goodies, a sweet tooth fairy kit from Made by Niss, ceramic herb markers As You Wish Ceramics, a surprise from Sally Ridge, handprinted paper and tea towel from Ellume Life, gorgeous notebooks and greeting card from K Gets Organised & a sweet pendant kit from Huckleberry.
On Saturday lots of amazing magazine publishers were speaking at the Perth Writers Festival. I listened intently to thoughts from Janine of Uppercase, Adrian from Smith Journal, the team behind Kinfolk, Mele and Nathan from Dumbo Feather, and Luisa of Alphabet Family Journal. Each of them with their own gems of wisdom to pass on. Such an fantastic day! I have come away feeling full of inspiration and thinking about my dreams for the future of tickle.
