What's The Deal With Puzzling? January 17, 2024
by Lilly Perrott on
As we sit back and unwind between Christmas and New Year's, we're reflecting on what milestones and exciting events we've achieved this year and encourage you to do the same!
We kicked off this year with our puzzler community as sponsors for the Australian Jigsaw Puzzle Association's state puzzle competition where over 200 participants tried out our brand-new collection of puzzles and battled for the fastest completion time!
As we entered March we rallied together to promote love and equality with Mardi Gras and released our limited edition charity collection 'Pride Together', and hosted our first-ever online auction with all proceeds going to Middle Eastern LGBTQIA+ rights charity, HELEM. Discover the collection
This year we've partnered with the wonderful folks at Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) to raise funds during NAIDOC week and also to donate a % of all profits from our Christmas card sets this year which will go towards books and learning resources in remote communities across Australia.
We had some stunning collections with guest artists Holly Sanders and Australian children's book illustrator Deb Hudson - we love working with our artists and are so proud of the stunning work they've created for us! You can read more about Deb Hudson's creative processes here!
We also had a VERY exciting collaboration with none other than Sesame Street! Our in-house artist Murilo Manzini took the gang to some of Australia's most iconic locations and created colourful artworks that emanate nostalgia through the Aussie lens. Read our post '10 Fun Facts You Probably Don't Know About Sesame Street'.
Of course, being artists and illustrators ourselves, we released 4 of our own collections and introduced our new in-house artist Laura Ramos with her debut collection 'Enchanted Garden' which has become one of our most loved collections to date!
None of these events and exciting achievements would be possible without your love and support - we truly are so grateful to everyone for choosing to shop with La La Land. When you buy a card or gift from us it not only helps our business but also gives back to charities, and supports our community of artists and illustrators.
Thank you for all the love in 2023, we can't wait to share what we've got in store for you in 2024!
