laracameron Having fun over at @inkandspindle_ prototyping some little zip pouches with the talented @nikkishell behind the machine. Finally a good use for those dropcloths. 1w

laracameron Over at @inkandspindle_ we're hosting an Open Studio and printing demo this coming Saturday, as part of the Craft Cubed festival. It's our first open day all year, so hopefully you can make it down to say hello! There'll be fabric & homewares and afternoon tea, of course :) #craftcubed #craftvictoria 4w

laracameron Alone at last. Made all the sweeter thanks to @drmartyscrumpets topped with @rooftopbees honey, paired with chai in a @tkawei mug. I'm taking my downtime very seriously. 1mon

laracameron Butchered some beetroot to make playdough this arvo. Easiest toy I've ever made. Turmeric for the yellow, mixed them together to make #3. 1mon
  •   kibbott So clever would love the recipe ? 1mon
  •   laracameron @kibbott I just googled "natural playdough dye" - the first few results were all good and much the same recipe :) 1mon
  •   kibbott Thanks Lara 🏻 1mon
  •   littlenoggi 🏼🏼🏼 1mon
  •   kyokoimazu Looks yummy! 1mon

laracameron A new house calls for new curtains! The first thing we'll do before moving is install blackout curtains in Addy's cave I mean bedroom. Now I understand why our customers struggle so much when choosing colourways... #somanyoptions #waratah 1mon

laracameron Tagged by @hellospinspin for #widn. Drawing froggies upon request #ladidadida. I tag @littleletters @kibbott @ameeliah @lucybjames 1mon
  •   lucybjames ... What I'm doing now? 1mon
  •   laracameron @lucybjames yup. Looking after two toddlers apparently? :) 1mon
  •   littleletters Love that little drawing thingy. I've been wanting to get one like that!! 1mon
  •   threadbound That's a pretty good froggie! I'd be asking over and over too I think! 1mon
  •   leninapenina That wooden etch-a-sketch is awesome. Could I ask Where you got it from?? 1mon
  •   laracameron @littleletters @leninapenina it's by gg toys, a Japanese brand (of course they'd use a cat for the slider!). Hunted high and low for a non plastic one, love it. 1mon
  •   littleletters Ahh yes that's why I've taken so long to get anything. I really wanted a wooden one. I'll get on that. It's so great. 1mon
  •   leninapenina Thanks for sharing @laracameron! 1mon

laracameron This book is literary gold for anyone out there trying to balance the two equally powerful demands of parenting and creating. For me it's an eternal battle. I feel like I have two children, one born 15 months ago and the other who just turned 8. Just because Addy came along doesn't mean my love and responsibility for @inkandspindle_ is diminished. It's a huge part of who I am and I'd take a day at the studio over a day with my toddler in a heartbeat! I'm not ashamed to admit it and I don't think it makes me less of a mother. And hell I deserve that time away, what with the 5am starts and only one 1.5hr nap each day. It's like she *knows* how much there is I need to get done . Anyway back to my point. Read it! 2mon
  •   laracameron @therachelpapers I'm flattered that you know of us! Thank you! :) 1mon
  •   ljloveisyourcompass @laracameron Thanks so much for sharing this. It has taken me 2 kids to finally admit that I am a creative being who needs that outlet in order to be a grounded human being and happier mum and it's important to honour and nurture myself not just make my existence all about my children. 1mon
  •   willowandgoldhome Just wanted to say thanks for your honesty about your experiences being a mother. I'm new at this juggling a business thing with a toddler and have just started reading this book thanks to your recommendation. So good! x 1mon
  •   laracameron @willowandgoldhome @ljloveisyourcompass so glad it helped - it's nice just to know that the feelings are normal and valid. 1mon
  •   doinggreatbaby I loved this book so much. I cried several times with that feeling that I wasn't alone. (Beth) 4w
  •   laracameron @doinggreatbaby yes! And yay I'm looking forward to your book too. It's going to all my preggo friends ;) 4w
  •   doinggreatbaby Thanks @laracameron!! I love your work too! 4w
  •   ezzalowe Oh wow! I hear you Mama! Off to check this book out. Thanks for sharing! 2w

laracameron Speaking of lovely timber things, over at @inkandspindle_ we're very excited to launch this collab with our neighbours downstairs @likebuttermelbourne!
Large ply sheets were brought upstairs, printed in repeats as we do our meterage, then sent back down to be cut and assembled into Like Butter's iconic milk crates. Fun times!

laracameron I think it was about 7 years ago that I first designed this lamp base in my head. And here it finally is. Cut from Vic Ash hardwood with a solid copper accent and beautifully paired with our lampshades. Big thanks to @likebuttermelbourne for helping bring it to life. 2mon

laracameron Further evidence of my Most Indulgent Weekend in 14 Months. Just some "sweets" that came after the cheese course...and the two dessert courses...and the 7 main courses...and the handful of "snacks" for starters. I have never eaten anything so amazing in my life. #vuedemonde #anditwasallfreeeee 3mon
  •   kyliebudge Oh yes, I did that once. Was brilliant! 3mon
  •   angearainbow I'd be instagramming this too! @samjamss 3mon
  •   foxwisp Why did you get to go to vue de monde for free?? You have no idea how jealous I am 2mon
  •   foxwisp I have to ask though... How was the duck tongue? And the eel with white chocolate 2mon
  •   laracameron @foxwisp duck tongue was amazing, but don't think we had the eel! Dave got the voucher as his leaving gift from Sitepoint Group :) 2mon
