I’m very pleased to announce that nearly $3000 has been raised for enviro and animal welfare charities since I started my Clothing for Conservation initiative in May 2019.
I create the designs, Redbubble prints the garments to order, and 25% of the retail price goes to charity
.A big thank you to all the wonderful people who have purchased t-shirts, dresses, sweatshirts, scarves and more, from my Redbubble store.
Together we have raised these funds for the following charities:
- Bat Conservation and Rescue Qld – $155
- Bush Heritage Australia – $665
- BirdLife Australia – $1471
- Environmental Defenders Office – $331
- RSPCA Qld – $99
- Wildcare Australia – $188
Custom-printed garments make a great Christmas gift, and you’ll be supporting charities too! Shop now at my Redbubble store: https://www.redbubble.com/people/PaperbarkW/shop?asc=u
And if you’re looking for other gifts for nature-lovers, keep in mind the expanded range of goodies now available from the Paperbark Writer store.
Speaking of Christmas cards, I still have the Australian Robin Christmas cards in store, but stocks are limited this year, so get in early if you’d like some. I keep planning to design other Christmas cards, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Maybe next year… If you have any ideas or requests, please let me know!
Take this Book for a Walk was released this year, and is a draw-in-the-book, step-by-step guide to nature journaling. Written for both kids and adults, Take this Book for a Walk has received generous praise from both teachers and students. A great way to get out and explore the natural world in a new way.
Stories from the Wildworld is a fantasy adventure based on ecological facts, aimed at readers 8 – 12 years, but also enjoyed by older age groups. Follow the adventures of Suzy Swamphen, Pip the Squirrel Glider and Roo the Eastern Grey Kangaroo as they try to save Pip’s bushland home, and learn all about the flora and fauna of South East Queensland along the way.
Bimblebox Wonderland was my very first colouring book, published in 2015, and it offers a gorgeous introduction to the marvels of Bimblebox Nature Refuge in Central Queensland.
I am a self-publisher by choice (for many reasons), and all of my books are printed in Australia, on recycled paper.
Thank you for supporting my work by reading this blog, and buying my products. I hope your time leading up to the festive season is a gentle wind-down after a tumultuous year. Try to get out into nature if you can – you know it’s good for you!
