sesameellis House rules and how sharing our life online makes me a better mother for my kids on the blog. Clickable link in bio... #blogging #whatsesamesees #mydecadeonline 1d
  •   sesameellis @christopher_lin yep, that is what it is. But I assume they need their tribe too 23h
  •   d_girl77 I've followed you since Gemma's toddler years on Flickr. You inspired me to get my camera out more often. I love your blog. I've loved seeing your move across the world. I grew up in Australia and lived my whole adult life in the UK (until last year) so I get the Aussie references as well as the expat ones. Your words on family life are universal. Stay fabulous! X 23h
  •   thekidbucketlist @christopher_lin mind blown. I had no idea 22h

  •   ravibd Keep up the good work. You are inspirational. I follow you devotedly and bough all of your books. 🏼🏼🏼🏼️ 19h
  •   jenn_rosenberg Thanks for being so honest. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one yelling at my kids. 18h
  •   sesameellis @jenn_rosenberg me too! Xoxo 9h

sesameellis Never been catcalled, heckled nor stopped on my runs before today... Hazards of wearing my #magpies beanie in public! Seriously, every one and their friend (even in passing cars) have told me what they think of the @collingwood_fc and their six losses in a row. Guys, I sympathise but I have nothing to do with that...just cold out & don't have another warm hat. #gopies Dang you Aussies and your #AFL crazy! 2d

sesameellis Tiny cheeky preview of the new project I have been working on which will launch at the #pbevent in a few weeks! I am rolling out new workshops where bloggers, parents, & other creative loving types can pick up great photography tips to put into practice right away! The first series for the Problogger event will focus on #lifeinnaturallight and this is just one of the #photographytakeaway cards (front and back) that attendees will receive. I am so excited to be working with @alina_golovachenko on the design and with @olympus_au to bring this to people who are excited about taking great pictures!
Many more workshops planned, so if you are not joining us at Problogger, I hope to see you somewhere else soon!

sesameellis After finally just losing her entire lunchbox yesterday (as opposed to sporadically losing the containers inside) I am tempted to label each cracker and tomato going in the brown paper bag today. #thatkid #lifeinnaturallight 4d

sesameellis Look up, #Melbourne because the sky is gorgeous with dots of light from the #TelstraAir launch! I wish I had a wider angle lens with me tonight. And actually it is raining now, so just look at the pretty pictures! Telstra broadband customers (that's me!) can use their home internet allowance out and about with these #wifi hotspots! I can now call just about anywhere "my office" with this new service! Thanks for having me @Telstra #whatsesamesees #sp 5d

sesameellis Maybe that will help her find all the stuff she lost. Seriously, today she lost her entire lunchbox. The whole thing. *poof* Just like magic. #offwiththefairies #whatsesamesees #childhoodunplugged #lifeinnaturallight 5d
  •   aussieellen Is her name on EVERYTHING? 5d
  •   sesameellis @aussieellen and my email address! The stuff she loses? It just vanishes. And Clover doesn't care. All she needs is Nunny. 5d
  •   aussieellen I hope she never loses Nunny 5d

sesameellis Cold and gloomy outside today so I am working by the heater and filling the house with summer scents of mango and papaya. It looks warm, right? #whatsesamesees #cornersofmyhome #lifeinnaturallight 5d
  •   sesameellis Thank you @circahome for the wax and warmer that was in the @tinitrader gift bag last night!!!!! It is smelling like a holiday around here today! 5d
  •   tinitrader Our pleasure @sesameellis We're glad the @circahome wax and warmer is warming your Thursday Thanks for coming last night. 5d
  •   heleneandmilo It is so surreal to read this kind of post, we are in the middle of a 3 day heat wave here in Montreal. Sending hot vibe your way 😎 5d
  •   sesameellis @heleneandmilo oh, I need the hot vibes today! It is downright blustery here! 5d

sesameellis A little light reading for the boy. I'm fascinated by what the kids select at the library! #raisingreaders #whatsesamesees #childhoodunplugged 6d
  •   alhbmrbrat Love it! My son is really into natural disaster books at the moment...never woulda guessed, but read, read, read away my boy! 🏼 6d
  •   munkuvia The way his eyebrows talk! 6d
  •   justj3n1ca Love that eyebrow! 6d
  •   1derwanders He and my boy would get along famously. Thomas loves the 'worst case scenario' books and the second thing he does (seat belt first!) after boarding a plane is study the safety card. Lol. 6d

sesameellis I am starting a new thing... If you are in the neighbourhood (or even joining online) let's have a beverage (or ️) and craft (badly) once a month at Sesame Ellis headquarters because it takes a village to knit a scarf.

sesameellis When you say something so that others don't have to feel alone or embarrassed and then others in turn let you know it made a difference.... That is why I share so much online. That is why I say "I don't need a bag." when the pharmacy tries to hide my Zoloft. I don't need protecting, I need the societal shame to be diluted.
Thank you for the flowers, beautiful friend... #depression #anxiety #awareness #whatsesamesees

sesameellis Seriously this one just does not care. It is winter and I ask that they wear shoes while riding... She thought I wouldn't notice if she just took one shoe off and hid it. #itsamomslife #whatsesamesees #freespirit 2w
  •   annie_hanlon Your descriptions of Clover make me think that Kenny Chesney sang the song "Wild Child" just for her. That hidden shoe... 2w
  •   heroborneo where is my shoe????? 2w
  •   janszie LMFAO!!! That's the funniest thing I've heard all day! 2w
  •   justj3n1ca I don't notice anything 2w

sesameellis I am admittedly craft challenged. I think I have attempted to learn sewing, knitting and crochet about 100 times over the years. I would also probably fit in dauntless if I had to pick a crafting faction because I am trying again. I am also responsible for the class auction art project and it is weaving! That's right, I'm leading a weaving project that is supposed to raise money for the school. That means someone needs to buy it. Thank goodness there is a brand new MASSIVE location of @spotlightstores that just opened near me and I am taking what they gave me as a goodie bag in Sydney and adding to it a loom... Want to learn with me? Or possibly just giggle along at my results? Even better, show me inspiration!!!!! #spotlightaustralia #craftchallenged #weaving #fibrearts #knitting 2w
  •   sesameellis @paolo_vino really? That is awesome! I'm teaching in Sydney then though!!!! 2w
  •   sesameellis @lisaluckylisalucky I am going to start with the weaving first and hopefully knitting second! 2w
  •   lisaluckylisalucky Weaving is totally cool too! Have fun, friend. 🐏 2w
  •   sesameellis @lisaluckylisalucky thank you! I am actually kind of excited. Been researching how to make a loom for the class and will get started tonight! 2w
  •   paolo_vino She will also be in Sydney during her trip. Check schedules on Ann's website or Morris and Sons @sesameellis. I will introduce you to her this weekend; we are spending a mini-vaca in a mountain home with them and another couple. 2w
  •   gemsling Impressed at your ability to turn weaving into a Divergent reference... 2w
  •   sesameellis @gemsling I have a tween daughter, my life is a Divergent reference. 2w

sesameellis What kind of mom sees beautiful rock candy lollies at her hotel and thinks "Perfect Sydney souvenir!"... This mom! The same one who will be begging her children to settle down for the next hour or five. Thanks for the candy and the lovely weekend @RydgesHotels! #BloggeratiSydney #ilovesydney #whatsesamesees #wedidnotquitsugar #clearly 2w
