Creating and Collecting

Hello! I’m Susannah, I live and work in the leafy north eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I've been a Book Designer for many years, and have been lucky to work with some wonderfully creative people. While I adore my job, I've always felt like something was missing. I am on my own creative journey, indulging my passion for making and creating, collecting and dreaming. It's making my heart sing!

I have a keen interest in social history and people’s day-to-day. I am a bower bird by nature (although I am not confined to blue!). Some things I collect for their aesthetic qualities, some for their quirkiness and some for their history. From old books with foxed end papers to seashells, kitschy touristware to vintage photos! Bookshops, opportunity shops (thrift shops), markets & antique stores…I can rarely pass these without having a fossick! I love using my treasures in my artwork.

I would describe myself primarily as a collage artist – using a mix of found objects, vintage photographs, illustration, ephemera and textures. I also reproduce vintage photographs, gently restoring them and giving them new life as a fine art print. I enjoy using this imagery, along with recycled maps, old discarded books and sheet music, to make jewellery, homewares and other bits and bobs! Wishpom brings together many of the things I love in one eclectic pot!

My goal is to stay creative, explore, experiment, share and make beautiful things!

Thanks for stopping by! Please visit my blog www.wishpom.com and hop on over and like my Facebook page! I love chatting to like minded people so if you spot something that piques your interest let me know and say 'hello' :-)

If you are returning an item please keep proof of delivery and the item needs to be posted back within 7 days of making contact.

Items are described to the best of my ability and every item is checked before posting to ensure it is in perfect condition. We package everything with the utmost care. I would not send anything that I wouldn’t be happy to receive myself!

Note that as items are unique, handmade and 'made to order' they may vary ever so slightly from the image in the listing.

Payment must be made in full and cleared before the item is shipped. We would appreciate payments to be made within 3 business days but please don't hesitate to contact us if that is a problem. Thanks!
I am happy to combine postage to reduce shipping costs. Contact me prior to your purchase and I can set up a custom listing for you with the correct postage.

Your goodies will be sent to the address in your Etsy account unless otherwise notified.

As standard I post items through Australia Post using their regular mail service (domestic) and Airmail (international).

Australian mail takes between 1-5 days to arrive depending on where you live. If you would like Express Post or Registered Post this can be arranged prior to purchasing so please message me and I will organise a custom listing for you.

International mail can take 7-21 business days (sometimes longer depending on what country you live in). We send all items via standard Airmail. Please understand that we have no control on how long things take to get through customs. In some countries this can cause a delay. Also please note that if you have to pay additional customs fees or import taxes that is your responsibility (please check with your post office prior to ordering if you are unsure).

We take no responsibility for items lost or damaged though the postal system. You are more than welcome to use registered post. Just let me know and I can calculate the additional cost for you.
