Hi Gang! It's May! And a new month means...our new Freebie Washi Tapes are here!!! We've been so excited to reveal this month's washi tapes, as we've done a super special collaboration with WashiGang fave, Rox Paper Stickers!! Roxanne designed 3 Autumn themed washi tapes for us and we're absolutely in love with these designs! Roxanne also created this beautiful Autumnplans spread, using her tapes! It's so cosy and pretty and makes us want to do all of the fun Autumn things!!!
Hi WashiGang fam!!! We're big fans of Australian designed products over here, especially when they feature Australian native plants and animals. We interviewed Isabelle from Mister Moose Shop, the amazing illustrator behind some of our beautiful Australiana washi tapes! Read ahead to read a little about what goes on behind the scenes in Isabelle's life and where she gets her inspiration from.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, we've put together a few things to make gift shopping (for yourself or a mother in your life) a little easier! Read below for our special promotion, our staff picked gift guide and a beautiful recipe plan by WashiGang team member, Bec!
There's something about the cooler weather that's making us feel a bit witchy! Maybe it's all of the extra baking and rainy weather? What do you think?
With our latestAutumn witchy vibes freebie tapes just released, we asked WashiGang team member, Emily, to hunt around the warehouse for her favourite witchy finds!!! There are so many magical and mystical witchy products in our shop, it was so hard to decide on just a few!!! Can we all please run away to Hogwarts and drink butter beer and have a pet owl, already???
Did you know we have a WashiGang workshop coming up soon? Led by the talented Ali from Creative Inking, the Introduction to Brush Pen Calligraphy workshop is a great starting place for using brush pens! This workshop was so popular last time, we had to do another one! It's a really approachable workshop for beginners, with lots of tips and techniques, including lettering guides! Our participants could even see a difference in their technique by the end of the workshop.
Hi Gang!Do you have any special plans over the Easter break? We're dreaming of an overseas getaway, but maybe a local trip to the beach, or a little camping trip would be nice? Or maybe we'll have to stay at home with the current situation in Queensland and Northern NSW. Mostly, we're looking forward to getting into some chocolate. ASAP!!!
You may have noticed some of Katherine Appleby's beautiful Australiana watercolour washi tapes in the WashiGang shop! Well today we're going to introduce you to the talented artist behind those washi tapes on our blog! We hope you enjoy getting to know a bit more about Kathy in this interview, as much as we did!
Autumn is here and we’re getting excited for the cooler weather!!! Finally!!! How beautiful is Autumn in Australia? Clear blue skies, cooler days, camping trips, getting into some cosy snacks and clothes…and let’s not forget all of the chocolate that comes with this time of year!!!
To help you get in the mood for autumn, we’ve made up a fun Autumn bucket list of fun Autumn themed activities. What are your favourite things to do in Autumn? Let us know in the comments.
We've got a special blog post today from our WashiGang team member, Bec (AKA @bec.writes). Did you ever have a penpal as a kid? What about as an adult? Bec has been collecting and writing to penpals for the past few years and she has some great tips on how to get started, including where to find penpals. It's such a beautiful way to connect with people, in keeping alive the art of letter writing, especially during times of isolation, lockdowns and travel restrictions. Letter writing is also a great way to use all of the fun pens, washi tapes and stickers!!!
What have we been up to this past month??? We had a great month, with our first ever workshop, which sold out!!! We can't wait to do anotherbrush pen calligraphy workshop again, in April. We've also had lots of fun new stock arriving, including a big'new release' Happy Planner delivery, as well a few of our favouriteart books coming back into stock!!! We also got our brand new WashiGang YouTube channel up and running, with flip-throughs and many more fun videos on the way. And finally - Harry, the WashiGang office chihuahua, is slowly learning to not bark at the delivery guy...sometimes...we'll get there!
Hi Gang! We're so excited to introduce our Guest Blogger for this month - Roxanne, AKA @roxpaperstickers, a Bullet Journaling queen and sticker maker from Sydney. We had so much fun reading Roxanne's BuJo tips!!!
