Mummy Daughter Monday

Filed under: Arty-farty, Family stuff, Mummy Daughter Monday — missymuh @ 4:12 pm

Well this MDM was a bit of a crock. Luke is home because his hand is too sore to work, so we couldn’t go out and do girly things. Most of the morning was spent dealing with a cranky Koby who didn’t want to go to playgroup with grandma, so he chucked a mega hissyfit and refused to go. So she left, then twenty miniuts after she went he decided that going to playgroup with grandma might not be such a bad idea after all, so we had to call her back again.

I have also been sitting at home waiting all day for a client to “call in” and dop off some money. She said she would be here at 1 and it is already 4…

On a good note i got mail. A book that i ordered off Amazon arrived today “Artists journals & sketchbooks” by Lynne Perrella. It is such an inspirational book. I went out to my local scrap shop and brought some supplies to do some collage stuff tonight while i watch the Oscars. I have been blocking my ears and not watching any news updates all day so i don’t get told who wins what. I hate that. because we are behind we always get shown who wins what on the news 30 min before they air the whole awards. It is so frustrating. Anyway, that’s all that happened today.

Here is a collage that i did the other day, just so i have a picture to show.























  Mixed media including paper, acrylic paint, corrogated cardboard, magazine cutouts, phtocopied photos and pen.

Doggy collage

Filed under: Arty-farty, inspirations — missymuh @ 11:18 pm

I whiped out the paints last night and got a bit creative. I saw this little doggy in a magazine and had to paint him. I’m actually more of a cat person, but this little guy was too cute. It is a mixed media collage/painting on paper. Using acrylic paints.

i haven’t painted in ages, so it was nice to be able to be creative in real life, instead of some photoshop creation

(which i personally consider as cheating when it comes to “painting” because it doesn’t really require that much skill, just a few cool brushes and textures and an artistic layer or two. Mind you that doesn’t stop me from doing it. lol)

Not much going on today. i am waiting for my shopping to be delivered (God Bless Coles online )

However i remembered that i forgot to order milk, and i ran out this morning, so once he comes i’ll have to go down to the shops anyway. But at least i only have to get one or two things and not the whole weeks worth.




 high: got to sleep in till 9:30 this morning! And we got paid today.

 low: 90% of the pay has already been spent on various bills and food…

Look, I made a quilt!

Filed under: Arty-farty, Family stuff — missymuh @ 3:52 am

It didn’t take me three months either. It only took three days. I had to make a few minor alterations because it wasn’t quite big enough. But overall I think I was pretty successful for my first quilt.I even embroidered a little message on the bottom corner. “To my princess, love mummy xx. 2006”. OK so my embroidery leaves a little to be desired, but the important thing is Charlee loved it.

Now I just have to get her to sleep in her big girl bed…

Last time I attempted this it lasted a whole 12 hours. I thought I would ease her into it by just taking off one side of her cot. I was absolutely thrilled when she went to sleep in it after her bottle during the day. I though “this is easy”.

 I spoke too soon of course. When it came to bed time, it took me three and a half hours of crying, fighting, screaming and whining (And that was just me * lol *). She would not go to sleep. So I had to put the side of the cot back up again, and within 10 min she was fast asleep.

That was about 2 months ago, so I think I’ll give it another month then I’ll try again..
