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.

Mummy Daughter Monday

Filed under: Family stuff, Mummy Daughter Monday — missymuh @ 3:54 am

Another monday, another mummy daughter day..

Today we had to go and get two new spare tyres for both my car and lukes. Mine got a huge hole in it about 4 weeks ago, and lukes went flat for no reason yesterday. Easy way to blow $150 in one go. *sigh*

After that we went to the post office and posted some stuff to clients (slide show cd’s, prints and such). Then we brought a new book. “Too Many Pears” by Jackie French & Bruce Whitely. I LOVE the illustrations in this book, they are just beautiful. I borrowed it from the library for koby about a month ago, and he loved it. We had to read it everynight, and there were tears when it had to go back. My local book shop was having a sale, so it was on special.

After that we had some lunch then some window shopping and now we are home. Miss C is asleep, and i am eating donuts…mmmm…donuts.

I was so excited when i got home to find a big package waiting for me. It was some collage/decopage paper that i ordered online. I wasn’t expecting it to be delivered until next week. 

NOt much else is happening here today. I need to do some cleaning, dishes, washing ect. Here are some pics that i took this morning with my Film SLR. I hadn’t used it in ages, and there was half a film in it from months ago, so i thought i’d better use it up before the film gets too old. Here is Miss C playing her LeapPad Piano with her feet, and rearranging the furnature in her room. Notice all the toys strewn on the floor.

I don’t know why i bother trying to keep them on her shelf. She loves to just stand there and pull them all off again. Funny girl.

Oh, and i think lilac and brown are definatly “her” colours… I think it’s a blonde thing. Blondes always look good in purple…

A girls day to shop.

Filed under: Family stuff, Mummy Daughter Monday — missymuh @ 4:55 am

Well that’s what Monday’s are anyway. Koby has started going to playgroup with his grandma again which means and she takes him out of my hair all day. So me and Charlee get to have mummy daughter days. Today we hit the shops.

I picked up some cute tops for her at Cotton On Kids. 50% off, so they were only $10 each. I also scored a gorgeous dress for myself only $15 (reduced down from the original price of $69!!!) from Tree Of Life.

 Then we sat down in the food court and had some lunch. Then more window shopping followed. I also popped into spotlight to pick up some fabric to start making Charlee a quilt for her big girl bed. I don’t know what possessed me to want to make her a quilt considering I have never quilted in my life. But I have been looking around for a while for a decent donah cover for her, and I have always come home gravely disappointed and empty handed.

At Kmart and Target all I can ever find is Barbie, Bratz, My Little Pony or some other boringly un-original licensed brand. And I have had a look in spotlight a few times, but anything nice and original looking is not gonna leave me much change from $100. And i simply can not justify spending that much on a donah cover for her.

Heck i don’t even spend that much on linen for myself! So I am making her a quilt. I picked up some gorgeous fabric in pink and pale blue tones ( a gingham check, a stripe, a paisley, a floral and a small print floral). They were only $4.95 a meter. And I have made up the design myself.


It will probably take me a good 3 months to finish. But I will pop it up on here to let you all have a squiz at my handiwork when it is done. Anyway after spotlight, we popped into Coles to pick up some small things. And when I got home I remembered that I had forgotten to buy garbage bags (the last one is currently lining the 80% full bin as we speak). So now it looks like I’ll have to go all the way down to the shops again, just to buy garbage bags. Oooh I have a better idea.. I’ll just get Luke to grab some on his way home from work. Brilliant.High: finding my $15 bargan dress, and it was actually in my size for a change.

 Low: realizing that i forgot to get the garbage bags, which when i think about it, were the only things i really needed to remember to get.
