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...

It's hard to explain...I am probably part time of physical making but my brain is constantly on, whether it's brainstorming, planning, sketching out idea, across social media. Do small business owners ever actually switch off. I find my best ideas come when you least expect it - like on a family outing or at school drop off, so my travelers notebook is never far away from grasp. When you really like what you are doing there will be times when it doesn't feel like work at all. However, I need to remind myself of deadlines <this is the hardest bit...

The colours and texture that is leather is truly beautiful. With leather it's best not to over complicate things either. My journals and bags reflect this. Even the journals without the ‘bells and whistles’ per se; like the ‘classic’ notebook,it highlights the true character of the natural hide.  @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 #sketch#sketchbook #sketching #etsyshop#shopsmall #etsyfinds
