This baby just landed in our laps today! The Seljak Brand Original Whipstitch blanket is made from 70% recycled wool and 30% blend of polyester & recycled mohair, alpaca and cotton.
Sadly, as much as I wanted to tear the packaging off and throw this baby over the couch - I won’t be holding onto it. Instead, it will go to one lucky winner at CreativeMornings Context with Sammy Seljak. Stay tuned to find out how you can go home with it! #cmcontext

We’ll be announcing all event details this week. Here’s a little clue as to who our speaker might be, by the talented Ryan McShane
Were PUMPED to announce this one. Thanks to our support partner @zenueco, our December is going to be the biggest and baddest yet. Our goal: no waitlist 🙌🏻 Our warehouse venue in Milton will host 250 morning people for our event on Friday, December 15th. That’s 100 more than we’ve ever been able to host. Stay tuned for further details and check out @zenueco’s new website while you’re at it.
Our November event is cancelled.
But don’t shed a tear, we can get through this together.So you know that wonderful and equally patronising John Lennon quote: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” Well, that’s pretty much how November has gone down so far. Because we’re committed to bringing you the best events possible, we’ve decided to cancel the November event and focus our efforts towards throwing the biggest and best CreativeMornings/Brisbane Christmas Bonanza event next month.We’re sorry for any inconvenience or existential crisis this may cause you and we pinky promise to make it up to you all with one last 2017 hoorah. Save the date for Friday December 15th and stay tuned for details.
Death has inspired humanity since time immemorial, influencing ideologies and storytelling to our understanding of life and how we live it.
To our ancient ancestors, the fear of death was a palpable and daily motivator. Although our world is infinitely safer than it was centuries ago, we are still driven by the fear of death and we expertly attribute it to even the smallest events: traffic, deadlines, a mistake, public speaking, your boss’s name on your caller ID on a Saturday.
What we have done well as a species is leverage the fear of death to inspire achievements that seemed impossible, to create work that needed to be made, and to discover insights that help us live well.
Lis Harvey splits her time between freelance photography work and running underwear and basics label NICO. A degree in Photography from the Queensland College of Art kick started a career in advertising and commercial photography and a craving for creative expression led to the beginning of NICO. A deep interest in the visual and a passion for creative problem solving are behind both.
Lis is represented by Compadre Picture Co. and produces photographic work for clients including RACQ, Suncorp, University of Queensland, CUA and Kinder. NICO continues to grow a loyal following and has been recognised for a commitment to fashion, ethics and sustainability with coverage in Peppermint Magazine, Broadsheet, Frankie Magazine and as the winner of the Lingerie and Swimwear category at the Source Awards.
Missed out on Ben Chiu’s talk? The incredible Jimmy Patch has you covered with his live graphic recording of the event! Watching Jimmy do his thing in person is absolutely awesome and I can’t wait to have him as a part of the CreativeMornings/Brisbane family from here on out.
