Hi, I'm Jess from Rustic Wren, of Lenswood in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia that has had devastating fires run though my small home town and surrounding Adelaide Hills townships. We have personally been deeply affected by the Cudlee Creek fire as it raged towards our home and neighbouring lands in December 2019 - just days before Christmas when the fires occurred. My husband, Shayne got caught in an up draught and was badly burnt while defending my family and neighboring properties. While a wall of fire approached, his tractor got stuck on a fallen tree. He ran...

Well where do I start……..living in the country all my life, I felt this contributed to my style and wanted to represent that in my brand… On this one day when I was tossing up ideas, I saw ‘blue wrens’ dancing on our front lawn, it was strange, as we dont get them at our place, I grew up with them at Mum + Dad's house, they are so pretty and fun to watch, (we are only 1.5kms up the road --- the garden must play a role here --- or lack of, at my place). I liked the idea...

---- Travelers Notebooks---- Tote Bags---- Hand-stamped Clutches---- Pen/Tool/Brush Rolls I offer ‘custom made’ products so you can find something that’ll fit your needs. I feel this is important and as I make each product to order its not that much extra to offer this service. Especially if it’ll make your day. I’ll be offering ‘hand-stamping’ as an extra option which can be added to all orders. I adore hand-stamping - it's a beautiful personal detail. @rusticwren #rusticwren #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker #traveljournal #journal #journaling #australianmade #makersgonnamake #etsy #handcrafted #leather #leathergoods #leathercraft #planner #planneraddict #plannerlove #adelaide #southaustralia #adelhills #adelady #adelaidehills #designer #graphicdesign #creative...

Being a maker, 97% of the work is done behind the scenes, where we are in our old jeans, barefeet, hair a wreak, stuff everywhere, juggling many things at once… all the while knowing you have “normal house stuff” to get done too. I love my life and I love juggling --- it feels odd when I have only one ball in the air --- but this is never for long. I thought I'd be more organised than I am… I design + make planners after all. But I am not a drill sergeant with my kids (and husband) and...
