Christmas Events

Sorry for the lack of updates on here, dear friends. Somehow time just got the better of me.

I’m excited to share that this month, the very last in 2017, we’ll be at two Christmas events in Melbourne where you can buy our products. The first is happening this Sunday December 10th, at Sir William Fry Reserve in Highett. The event is called Carols by Kingston and for the first time we’ll be selling from inside a marquee!

We’ve been super busy getting everything ready for what promises to be a very exciting night filled with handmade goodies, gourmet food, cheerful carols and celebrity appearances. Please come along if you can! We’ll be there from 6.30pm until 10pm.

These are just a handful of products that you could expect to find when you shop at our stall. Your support means the world to us and we always get such a kick from interactive directly with our customers.

The second event this month is happening at Clarinda Community Centre on Friday 15th of December from 5pm – 9pm as a twilight Christmas market. We’re just as excited to be part of this smaller event.

Hope to see you at one of these great events soon! Have a lovely weekend!

Event, Handmade, Latest News, Our Studio

Studio News

Where has this year gone? We’re almost at the end of 2016 and yet it doesn’t seem real somehow. Soon we’ll be decorating the Christmas tree again, singing carols by candlelight and making new year’s resolutions. It’s really hard to comprehend how quickly this year has passed by. Who else agrees?

This month we’ll ship our fourth Mishka Mail parcel with a quirky Christmas theme. There will be plenty of cute greeting cards, gift tags and stickers to get you into the festive spirit, as well as a few surprises! Subscriptions are open until next Sunday, 20th of November and you can buy one here.


Our October Mishka Mail kit was themed “Slow down, Take it easy”. We included various stationery items celebrating all the ways we can lead a simple, healthy lifestyle.


This year we published our first advertisement in a cool Canadian magazine called Uppercase. We appear in their special 30th issue.


Our studio had a little makeover with new artwork on the walls and a few changes to things here and there. We love how it’s turned out!


Lastly, we’ll be exhibiting at a fantastic new pop-up market at the Caribbean Gardens (1280 Ferntree Gully Road, Scoresby) this Sunday, 20th of November. Make sure you come along if you’re in Melbourne as there will be tonnes of fun attractions and awesome craft stalls from 8.30am – 4.30pm. More info can be found here.

All these items of stationery will be available to purchase as part of our Mishka Mail kits, while stocks last:


Have a great week, everyone!

Music, Our Studio

Music I Love…

For as long as I can remember I’ve been in love with music. There are old cassette recordings of me singing popular children’s songs in Armenia at the age of 3 or 4. These recordings are a beautiful way of remembering my childhood, as we didn’t have a lot of different ways to capture things, like we do now. There’s one video of me as a baby at my uncle’s wedding and a few moments captured on photographic slides (negatives viewed through a special slide viewer). I get very emotional whenever I listen to my voice on those tapes as I can hear the passion in my voice for something I loved so long ago! I am so grateful that we managed to bring these tapes to Australia with us.

Music has surrounded me all my life. Playing the piano, composing music and singing always cheer me up after a rough day and brighten my mood. While there are hundreds of songs I love, below I’ve created a Spotify Playlist of songs that are always playing while I’m at work in my studio. They’re an eclectic mix of tunes of various genres and various tempos. These songs help me remember special moments in my life and make me get things done productively while singing (sometimes dancing!) and humming away with the music that I love. Take a listen…

Things have been quiet on the blog lately because we’ve been really busy in reality! We hope you’ve all had a great Easter and have enjoyed some down-time with family and friends.

Today we’d like to share with you our studio re-design and focus your attention on exactly what we are all about. It’s a pleasure to have you here and I sincerely hope you stick around because there are lots of exciting things to come.
