about

Hi I’m Jennifer, the Head of Whimsy here at Being Whimsical, thanks so much for visiting.

We offer several ranges of greeting cards from whimsically colourful pretty girls and fairies through to inspiring quotes, and birthday and life event greeting cards. The cards are all designed by me here in my studio on the NSW Central Coast and are created with love and happiness … and of course whimsy.
All cards are blank inside allowing for a personal message and are printed in Australia on either Post-Consumer Waste Recycled paper or FSC Certified paper, and come with a 100% Recycled Kraft envelope and are packed in a cello bag to keep them nice and clean on your shelves.

Stockists

We are fortunate and grateful that our list of happy gorgeous retailers is growing weekly.  We try to keep our stockists list as up to date as possible but sometimes too much whimsy gets in our way so the list may not be totally up to date.  Please visit here to see who stocks our whimsy in their store.

About Me

Before entering my whimsical art world I worked as a Client Account Manager in marketing and advertising agencies. About five years ago I decided I needed to take some time off from that world.  Also the need to get back into painting and creating again was consuming me, so I took the next few months to start making art again, going back to basics doing drawing classes and online painting classes.  Could I have been happier? I don’t think so.

My friends encouraged me to sell my art  and I thought they were crazy and that no one would want it … I was proved wrong.  So I’ve spent my weekends over the past three years successfully selling cards and prints of my art at funky art and design markets. Fast forward to now and here I am so very happy creating whimsy on a daily basis in a very messy studio, and sending it out to the world. Who’d have thought that in such a short space of time I’d have over 160 gorgeous retail stores (and counting) stocking my cards … not me!  Whimsical bliss.

After spending most of my life living in the inner west of Sydney I recently moved to the Central Coast of NSW with my Irish husband and beautiful brown dog called Finn Macool.  We live in one of those pole houses up in the trees with the birds, it’s wonderful.  I spend a lot of time thinking about tidying my studio …. I also watch far too much Big Bang Theory.
