Penned with love

"Handwritten letters have the power to become, over time, the blueprints of a person. Reading a letter from your childhood is like uncovering the architect’s plans for your now century-old house. You shake off the dust, carefully smooth the creases from the fragile paper, and as you read you can recreate, in your mind, the beginning. Likewise, rereading a letter from someone loved and lost can bring a piece of them back to life, knitting their thoughts, joys, hopes and challenges into flesh and bone with every silly story told, with every characteristic flourish of the letter ‘r’, or each ‘i’ dotted with a heart."

The beauty of letter-writing

"Naomi's special gift to this world is her love of letter writing and her oh-so-sweet artworks that adorn her 'snail mail' envelopes.  I received one of Naomi's handmade creations after seeing a very kind call out for recipients on Instagram and it took me DAYS to open as I put aside a little time each day to draw out only one element of her special package and to admire the care and attention in each detail.  Receiving such a heartfelt letter made me realise how special that personal connection is.  Especially in a day where communication is often quick and to the point..."


The Weekly Review

Mum's the word: Meet the Melbourne mummy bloggers making waves

"Naomi Bulger has blogged as Naomi Loves since 2011, but last year she decided to change her kids’ names online. 'Now they won’t have their own digital identity already set for them before they can do that for themselves.' These bloggers eschew the notion of the perfect modern mum, although Naomi says she is interested in sharing the good bits of parenting. 'The horror stories exist, of course, but people can forget to share the joy, the amazing astounding life-changing beauty of being a parent.'..."

A little note about sponsorships and editorial policy and that sort of stuff...

From time to time I am approached by PR folks as well as entrepreneurial creative folks (go you!) to write about their products or services in return for some kind of kick-back.

I rarely accept these offers but, when I do, my policy on this is pretty simple: if I like it, I will write about it. If I don’t, I won’t. So you won’t get a negative review from me, but you cannot buy my good opinion with gifts or money. Any gift I accept from you will be made clear in the post I write.
