I’d barely unpacked from the Glanville Hall open day when it was time to head up to Hahndorf for Love Cherish Adore.
Susie and Jenna did an amazing job as always with the organising and styling. You can see more of the overall day over on the official blog. Meanwhile here are some photos of my new-look stall:
I have oodles and oodles of new designs in the core range which haven’t quite made it to the shop yet but were received very well in person.
The etched acrylic, foiling and kraft invitations werethe big hitsthis time around. There were lots of really interesting ideas and wedding themes so I’m looking forward to all the creative stationery that will come of it!
If you missed it, I’ll be doing it all again at the next Love Cherish Adore on Sunday 30th August at Chapel Hill in McLaren Vale.
If you’ve ever wondered what Akimbo looks like behind-the-scenes, well wonder no more!
Pop over to The Workher where Laura was kind enough to share a tour of my home studio.
See the full post here.
I can hardly believe it but this month marks five years of Akimbo! It has been an amazing ride so far and I’m just as buzzing with ideas as I was way back when I started doodling stationery designs back in 2010.
My heartfelt appreciation goes out to each and every couple who has made me a part of their wedding. It’s an honour I don’t take for granted.

Glen Ewin Estate is one of my favourite wedding venues in South Australia so I’m delighted to announce that I am now one of their preferred suppliers! I’ve worked on client weddings and photo shoots there – as well as been a wedding guest there – and their venue, food and service are second to none so it’s a great privilege to be working alongside them.
To kick off our partnership, I will be exhibiting at their annual Bridal Fair on 11th January 2015 along with over 30 fellow wedding dream-makers.
You can find more about this free event here.
