Getting To Know ... Suzanne from Paint Sticks - No Mess - Fun




I am passionate about … my family, my friends, my product and my belief that you should always treat others the way you wish to be treated and life will be good!

I get frustrated when … it rains on weekends.

I started my business because … it involved a positive and fun activity for children, and was a product that I could produce from home.

My favourite TV show is … Spicks and Specks. Entertaining, funny & mostly because Hamish Blake is a regular guest!

If I could be anywhere right now I’d be … on an island resort, not having to clean or cook, reading a good book, just relaxing with my husband and two boys, snorkelling, safely exploring and enjoying the wonders of our Great Barrier Reef! Bliss!

I am most proud of … My family – my wonderful husband Chris and our two beautiful sons, Jack and Sam.

My favourite item from our product range is … The whole concept! Look, Mum ... no mess! Painting at home no longer has to be a chaotic chore. Kids can happily paint at home or away (they are great to take camping) without the drama of cleaning up paint spills. Paint Sticks - No Mess - Fun are very economical as there is no waste, they are long lasting, easy to pack away and whatsmore, they are refillable! AND they're proudly all Australian made!


I love listening to ... my boys talking, laughing and playing together.

My heart sings when … a customer tells me that they found out about my product from a friend who loves them.

The hardest part of running my business is … That it takes me away from spending as much time as I'd like with my family.
I love sipping on … a great cuppa. (English breakfast made in a pot with loose tea leaves – not a tea bag).

One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen is ... lots of things my two boys have done or said over the past couple of years!

The best part of my day is … tucking my boys into bed and giving them a huge hug and a kiss, then the  peace and tranquillity that comes a short time after. (Unfortunately, it doesn’t always go to plan!)

My favourite food is … Pretty much anything my husband Chris cooks (he is an awesome cook) and my Aunty Kathryn’s yummy Christmas pudding. I wish I didn’t have to wait till Christmas to eat it!

I struggle with … answering questionnaires like this!

Friendship to me means … being there to listen, smile, laugh, cry, hug and ... to just be there!

I just can’t live without … Chris, Jack and Sam and lots of good quality dark chocolate!

I bought some paintsticks from Suzanne on Saturday. When I got home, my three year old was super excited about them and painted for around half an hour. Which is forever in three year old time!

As both a teacher and parent, I have found Suzanne's paint sticks to be very useful. They have proven to be a great quality product and very economical with the refill option. The soft tubing makes them manageable for a broad range of children. Fantastic!
