tessmccabe It's nice that despite feeling a bit gross in this post-partum, limp-hair, deflated balloon body time of my life, my niece still sees me as stylin' #wherearemysonsfeet #andthebabieshands #ohwellilooklikeishoweredatleast 2mon

tessmccabe RG from @typographher - I'm very much looking forward to rounding out my Brisbane holiday hearing my former publishing colleague and now typographer, letterpress aficionado and indie publisher herself Nicole Arnett Phillips speak at the Brisbane @creativewomenscircle on Tuesday evening. I checked out the venue @showroombrisbane the other day and it is sure to be a gorgeous evening in a gorgeous space (and an extra special event too for reasons yet to be revealed! ). Any Brissie ladies (or gents - you are welcome too) interested in hearing this creative story and meeting other local peeps, limited tix are now available at CreativeWomensCircle.com.au/shop. See you there! 2mon

tessmccabe I'm on a panel this Friday alongside @_timothymoore and @shaynaquinn talking about Women In Design, moderated by @bonnie_cristine. Do we need special representation? Why are there less visible female design 'heroes' in comparison to male ones? Why are there always fewer female speakers at design conferences than male and what can we do about that? We will likely discuss all of these topics. I will also likely have a babe in arms because that's my life as a woman designer Hope to see you there! 3mon

  •   tessmccabe That's awesome @emmajenningsartist, the more of us who do it the more normal it becomes! 1mon

tessmccabe I'm clutching a cuppa and re-listening to a couple of eps of @thenewnormalpodcast this afternoon. You should too - recent episodes with guests @gracepapers, @shelley_thegaleriefitzroy and @lilymaemartinart are inspiring, informative, funny and engaging all at once. Makes doing chores 100x more bearable! 5mon

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. 😬 6mon
