tessmccabe Hey there, a reminder that my Brunswick studio space is available from April should one of you desire a place to go to be a professional human business person. I will be *acting* like a professional human business person while actually wrangling two small people at home for the foreseeable future. Can you tell this slightly scares me. $400/mo, neg, all inclusive, get in touch for more details and pics. 😬 1w

tessmccabe Hey, happy first birthday to @thenewnormalpodcast which @emmamakesthings and I started a year ago! Just like a real first birthday the adults eat all the cake and the kids are oblivious and probably cranky. Anyway, I'm stoked we've made it to ep 17 feat. the lovely @lilymaemartinart! And excited for another year, esp with upcoming guests @gracepapers' Prue Gilbert, @shelley_thegaleriefitzroy and @juliacmaybe. Ace peeps, ace chats. Join us! 2w

tessmccabe I have a bad habit of inviting my dear vegan & gluten free friends over for afternoon tea and then realising they can't eat all the things (and my kitchen is rarely stocked with all the 'replacement' ingredients). Luckily @a_healthy_mum came to the rescue as I found this GF+V biscuit recipe on her blog! Thanks Stace! 6 ingredients for these peanut butter chocolate biscuits and I had them all on hand. They might also make an appearance at the next @creativewomenscircle event I think... 3w

tessmccabe These are the feet up of a lady who just sent a book to print... A massive (560 pages), long (2 years), exhausting (wearing lots of heavy hats... Everything except the writing, more or less!), pretty (300-something images), gut busting to the end project that has made me feel like I've done an undergrad degree in IP law with a side subject of InDesign night dreams. Thanks to a lot of you talented folk out there, it is going to look amazing and I hope you will all also get an education reading it! That was/is the plan anyway! Owning It: A Creative's Guide To Copyright, Contracts and the Law by Sharon Givoni, out in April. But for now... 😴 #owningit 1mon
  •   imageffect Well done @tessmccabe Awesome! Can't wait to see it! 1mon
  •   mwindetroit Oh Tess, this is fantastic news! Well done lady:) 1mon
  •   tribe_comms Congrats lady!! can't wait to see the finished product! 1mon
  •   smallbutmightyproductions Congrats @tessmccabe - we are now ready to print! It's going to look awesome! 1mon
  •   glografik Just catching up on all your news @tessmccabe. I constantly marvel at all that you've achieved creatively over the last few years. You're an inspiration to us all! Life's about to shift again with the arrival of baby number two, but I know you'll tackle that with as much enthusiasm (...and organisation skills!) as everything else in your life! All the best. 3w
  •   tessmccabe Thanks @glografik, that all means a lot! Esp as I wind down work and head into trimester 3 with so much still to do! Practising that relaxation breathing early 3w
  •   glografik You'll be fine @tessmccabe! Two kids is 95% an exercise in logistics - if you need anything at all just holler x 3w

tessmccabe My New Years resolution/challenge is to see if I can purchase only secondhand items of clothing all year (save for undergarments, natch). I have basically already been doing this but haven't put a measure of time on it. First up, near-new items for this next awkward-shaped phase of pregnancy where I change my clothes 5 times a day to change my mood. Savers, and people who blindly buy things at full price, I you. 2mon
  •   lindseyclare Nice finds! I did that sort of challenge myself a few years ago. It's a good reminder of how little we really need new new clothes. 2mon
  •   jasmine_mansbridge Go you @tessmccabe I have some pregnancy hand me downs but they all have paint on them! Hope your feeling well! 2mon
  •   cone11ceramics I did it for many years. Admittedly, out of necessity as I was broke. I also throw one item out for every item I buy. It makes me really think "do I need this?" Good luck. Hope you're feeling well. 2mon
  •   tessmccabe Yes @cone11ceramics $ are definitely a factor and how good does it feel to get rid of stuff too? I also find that I don't feel as much attachment to giving something away again if it was thrifted in the first place. Circle of life 2mon
  •   elizamuldoon I feel exactly the same way @tessmccabe ! I opshopped exclusively last year and have spent the money saved on travel. So much happier! 2mon
  •   tessmccabe That's so cool @elizamuldoon! 2mon
  •   thewritingyogi I was contemplating the same resolution today after scoring big time at a Trash & Treasures market this morning. 2mon
  •   imageffect I buy heaps of stuff second hand @tessmccabe - luv piecing stuff together. Savers is a gooden but I often feel overwhelmed! 😮 1mon

tessmccabe Amongst all the festive planning and end of year celebrations, yesterday I took a few pauses... It would have been the due date of the pregnancy we lost in May. It was strange, not knowing how to acknowledge it. But here I am. While I feel incredibly happy and lucky to be spending Christmas with a superb toddler, a hyperactive belly bump, an AMAZING husband and my best friends and family, I will surely be thinking of that little one. To anyone who has lost anyone this year, these flowers are for you too... And may you have an extra glass of wine/piece of cake and toast the random highs and lows of our fortunate lives xx #gettingsentimental #letthefunbeginnow #bringon2015 {flower print from my #Obus top} 2mon
