Kween of the typographic scene, Bianca Cash, is back at Bonds to bring us something srsly spesh. Having worked on our 100th birthday mural last year, the Melbourne designer has been busy doing what she does best – making gorgeous things with words. This time around, we invited her to create a bespoke and beautiful print for Mother’s Day, which you can download here for FREE! Speaking of Mother’s Day, we caught up with the talented typographer to get her two cents on what this day means to her and her family.
If you’re not already a swoony fan of Rachel Burke’s craft blog, i make. you wear it, then take it from us you soon will be. The crimson-haired crafty goddess is all about bright and colourful DIY that puts our old Grade 3 friendship bracelet-making swiftly to shame. What first begun as a Saturday night sewing challenge with friends has since lead to a hugely popular blog, an Instagram account with a schmick name (@imakestagram – sooo good) and a gig as a Frankie magazine contributor. Not bad, huh?
We caught up with Rachel to find out what makes her crafty heart sing. Have a read, then a scroll of her blog and decide what project you’d like to tackle during your next crafternoon.

Hailing from across the waters in New Zealand, Sarah has turned a love of real food into a successful freelancing career spanning recipe development, food styling and photography. We caught up with the busy mum to get the lowdown on what first kick-started her obsession for food and how she manages to keep everything (including her sanity!) in check.
