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.

“Mishkas in Europe” Wall Prints

It’s been a long time coming and today I’m so excited to share our newest products, prints of Mishka in four of my absolute favourite cities of Europe – London, Paris, Barcelona and Bruges.

Frame them, pin them up, use some washi tape and stick them to your wall. They look super fresh and funky in any space and suit a child’s nursery or even a studio/work space. We’ve made a Pitchi video where everything is explained and you can purchase a print online.

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.
