Meet Founder and Principal Planner/Stylist of The Creative Type, Caroline Buckle.
It started with a light-bulb moment. Well, more like someone slowly turning the dimmer switch.
Working in the corporate world was something she was good at, something she was making good money doing, but something that was lacking a certain, shall we say – life. Caroline realised she was working for a living, not for a life. That’s when she took the plunge, quit the well-paying but ill-nourishing day job and started The Creative Type. This allowed her to draw on her previous skills and experience in events, marketing and project management, but combining these with her lifelong passion for making and styling beautiful things. A new life, with colour and light, began.
In her spare time (hah!), you can find her rummaging around in dusty op-shops, crafting, refurbishing furniture, drinking too many soy latte’s with her husband and gorgeous baby boy August, and still trying to smuggle her little dog Molly into homewares stores around Victoria.
Oh, and consuming more blogs on a daily basis than is recommended.
