Jenna Templeton is a writer, designer, self-publisher, blogger and crafter from Sydney. She enjoys making fun, bright, colourful, quirky, cut & paste, Kawaii-Pop creations. Her works are inspired by Japan’s colourful street subcultures and modern Japanese crafts. Each of her works features her #No.1 craft tool – washi tape! She can normally be found working on new crafty projects in her mini-home studio and blogging about her creative adventures via her website; mylifeasamagazine.blogspot.com/.
Jenna’s latest work of self-made stationery, gift wrapping, pretty packaging, paper food, Kawaii-Pop Décor and zines, are currently on display within Kitiya Palaskas Mini Mart Rocks Pop-Up Shop in Sydney.
The Mini Mart pop-up shop located at 23 Nurses Walk The Rocks, Sydney officially launched on October the 5th with an overwhelming response from the creative and crafty community.
