We Are Scout is a creative lifestyle destination by Lisa Tilse, who is well known for her design-led contemporary craft and DIY projects. The curated content on We Are Scout reflects Lisa’s keen eye for design and style, her passion for interiors, and love of making.
We Are Scout showcases fresh trends and brands, and features Lisa’s craft tutorials and her inspirational finds in interiors, design, art and handmade. It was named as one of Domino magazine’s Best Design Blogs 2016.
Why ‘We Are Scout’? Lisa scouts and gathers the best trends and inspiration, and in 2013 she published an e-magazine called Scout. It also happens to be the name of a feisty and much loved fictional female character, and it’s also a just pretty cool name. So when coming up with a new blog name it seemed like the perfect fit for all those reasons. The ‘we’ in We Are Scout is the online community that’s an integral part of any blog. Our online tribe. The Scout Troop. You!
We Are Scout was founded in 2015 by Lisa Tilse, creative director, and Rebecca Lowrey Boyd, editorial director. Rebecca can now be found at Wee Birdy.
I’m all about living a creative life and I’m passionate about sharing skills and inspiring creativity in others. That’s what I love to share here on We Are Scout.
I’ve been blogging since 2008, when I began my first blog, the red thread. It was one of the top 5 finalists in Kidspot’s Voices of 2013 Blog Awards, Creative and Home.
My DIY craft projects and content have been featured by some of the world’s leading design sites and over 40 international magazines (check out the latest on the press page).
Creativity is part of who I am and as a result I earn my living doing many different things in addition to blogging. I call myself a creative slashie because I can’t sum up what I do with a single phrase! I’m a graphic designer and creative director / I create props / I style shoots and events / I can make pretty much anything / I design logos and photograph products for small businesses / I hold craft workshops / I am a fabric designer / I have a range of softie sewing patterns and kits… and more! You can see some of my work here. And the red thread sewing patterns and kits are here.
Apart from sharing projects I make, one of my favourite things on We Are Scout is the Space to Create series where I profile inspirational creatives. I find it so inspiring to see inside the studios, or corners of home, where artists and makers work. I love having the We Are Scout platform that enables me to shine a light on new and established creatives.
I live in Sydney, Australia, and when I’m not making things I like to visit galleries, ride my bike and eat gelato. But not at the same time.
