I was asked to be a brand rep for the second time and jumped at the opportunity. Papu are truly…

Kaleido Kollection…

Okay so hampers just got goooooooood my friends! Perfect timing to stumble upon this gorgeous small Queensland-based gifting business, Kaleido Kollection, because I am running out of ideas for gifts to send to friends while in isolation.

Claire Ritchie

I’m a long time fan of artist Claire Ritchie’s beautiful designs. When she released a range of tea towels I was excited to add some to my collection… but not to be used on dishes of course ha ha! They are way too beautiful. https://claireritchie.com.au/

Life in Lockdown

Some pics of our last couple of months in hard lockdown. It hasn’t been easy and we’ve still got a way to go but sometimes looking back at pictures helps remind me of how lucky we are.

A New Cubby Made From Old Scraps!

Our old cubby above the slide was getting a little squeezy for all three kids so my clever husband used the scraps of timber from our old back fence and some tin from our collapsed veggie patch to build an amazing cubby house extension! It was so satisfying using only materials we had on hand.

Eva is NINE!!

A message to my biggest baby girl: “Happy birthday Eva. Thank you for shining your special light every day. It isn’t always easy being the eldest of three but you take it in your stride and your siblings adore you. Your gorgeous friends are a credit to the amazingly caring and funny person you are……

Variety Hour Shoot

Pinch me please! The oh-so-delightful Cassie from Variety Hour reached out to me again to create some imagery for a couple of stunning pieces from her new classics range.

Gorman Playground

Hooray! A new season means a new range of gorgeous prints and goodies from Gorman’s kids range. I was lucky enough to be given another opportunity to create some content for this happy new range. I let the kids help me choose what they’d like. What a bonus that their sizes are generous enough to…

Happy Days in Gorman

Nothing like a rainbow dress to help improve the mood half way through our second lockdown. Thank you to Gorman for sending me this little care package! Plus I’ve put some other Gorman snaps below…

Gro To Skincare

I’ve been keen to try these products since they were launched but I’ve been waiting to run out of our bath products stash. So when Gro To contacted me to try out their products I jumped at the opportunity. I had heard wonderful things and they didn’t disappoint. The packaging and every bit of communication…

Iso Quilt Shoot

Thank goodness for gorgeous Xanthe from Wife Made quilts keeping me busy and helping break the monotony of lockdown with a fabulous bunch of quilts to shoot last weekend. I nearly died when I opened the parcels and saw how incredibly stunning they were and imagined how many hours of work had gone into them….

Happy birthday to me!

A birthday surrounded by my favourite people and being spoilt from afar by my gorgeous friends meant I didn’t really feel very isolated at all despite being in lockdown.

Camping at Home

A sunny weekend was forecast, new stricter lockdown measures were announced and my birthday was coming up in a couple of days so it seemed like the perfect time to have a camp out in the front yard! It’s also good to air out the camper every now and again given how little we’ve been…

Keeping Busy Making Facemasks

Seems there’s a bit of a demand for reusable face masks at the moment so I’ve been busy whipping some up… I’ve made an Instagram page @eva_and_tissy_store where I’m selling them. I’m very grateful to everyone for their response so far!

Another lockdown birthday! Tissy is 7…

The Sweetest Family!

Oh my gosh I still have to pinch myself when people contact me for a family shoot outside their homes. It’s been such fun challenging myself on this new path. Everytime I arrive at a new home I’m full of nerves but as soon as I meet the gorgeous families all the nerves dissipate. I…
