My first ever blog :) Wonder if I will be able to keep this up or if it will be too time consuming???

I seem to be taking on so many little projects at the moment, all related to making life fun and fabulous for my first born sweetheart Macy.

So I'm starting a blog, how very computer nerdy. But hey......I'm excited. I'm starting this to have my projects & ideas, both completed and ongoing, all in the one place. A visual update for myself, and anyone who may be interested. Especialy one day for Miss Macy Moo

08 February 2012

The last 2 week - 2 jobs done :)

I thought I'd do myself a quick update on the little bits and pieces I've done over the last 2 weeks.

Actually the 2 jobs I've done recently were both done in the same weekend, and I'm glad they are done.... especially job one..... paint the future big girl room.

So I'm moving miss Moo from her current room into another room for 2 reasons.  #1 I want to be able to decorate it a little more Moo-esque - loads more colour and more toddler features instead of baby stuff.  Reason #2 is one day in the hopefully not too distant future there will be a Moo V2.0 and they can have the room that is already set up for cute baby-ness!

T'was a stinking hot day and the back bedrooms get all the afternoon sun, which is where Moo's new room will be.  Lucky I prepared the room earlier with masking tape (the wrong kind as it happens.  who knew there is a 'special' masking tape for plaster! Pft. I do now.)

Anyway I jumped in and got totally carried away and basically got the job done in 1 arvo.  I think I need a tiny bit of touching up and we are done.  Now the fun part to come..... decorating.  I have been collecting bits and pieces over the past 12 months or so and have a few ideas floating apart but knowing me they will somewhat change or morph into a slightly different version of what I was thinking!

Big Girl Room

The other Project

Outside easel made with clear pvc.

This job was Super easy and I put it together in under 2 hours!

materials were just a piece of clear PVC plastic sheet from Bunnings (which I cut in half) and 2 pieces of timber (which I also cut in half to make 4 pieces), some screws and 2 hinges.

My very professional work bench.


The sheet of PVC which has a protective film over it.


I didn't take too many pics as it was such a simple project.  I basically joined the 4 pieces of wood together end to end with the 2 hinges, laid the pieces flat (pic below) and screwed the pvc on with timber screws.


What the below picture doesn't show is that its not really exactly even, but it stays up perfectly and does the job it was built for!

It really was a hit and looking forward to using it heaps more!

The serious artist. Moo.
