I recently came across this tutorial on how to make a little box pouch purse. mine did not turn out as nice as this one but thought I would share it with you as it is by far the easiest tutorial I have come across on how to make a purse with a zip, plus it is a good way to use some of your old favourite fabrics pieces I think! check it out here.

I recently purchased some Paintsticks from some lovely ladies at the July Mathilda's market in Brisbane and I just had to blog about them! They come in sets of 5 and are simply fantastic! They really are no mess and as you have to squeeze the paint out of them there is virtually no waste of paint (except when little mimoo decides to paint the walls,doors or her tummy whilst I nip out of the room!) you can also buy them online here and whilst $20 maybe seem a bit exxy (my mum thought so not me) the extra kicker is that they are re-fillable as you simply rinse them out when empty and refill with any colour you want. You dont waste any paint or have to wash out the leftovers down the sink (very un-eco).

I hope you are all having a nice weekend and enjoying this glorious 'winter' weather. I recently came across this website and just remembered I forgot to blog about it. check out these free downloadable prints as I have printed out a few myself and I am going to frame them to hang in little mimoo's play room. my favourite is the one above by Mandy Sutcliffe from Belle and Boo I think, so just click here.

I came across this cool project recently from Martha Stewart (okay okay I do subscribe to her craft project of the day emails, honestly some are just great ideas!) check out the link here. What a great way to re-use/refashion some of your favourite old tshirts that now longer fit (sigh)or have some damage/stains!

I have been very lazy this time around and have only gotten around to unpacking all my wares from Sundays' Boutique markets. Unfortunately it was not the greatest day sales wise as it was not a huge crowd but hopefully it will grow in the future and the people of Brisbane will support some home grown talent.

I just came across that I have been featured over at the Boutique markets blog as the August retailer! yeay! love a good feature and if you are Brisbane way stop by and see me at the markets this Sunday 8am-1pm!
The lovely ladies over at BrisStyle are having a EEE sale, so for more details check out the blog here for all the links to everyones Etsy stores. Sadly, as mimoo is on an Etsy store break we will not be taking part this year, but check out all the stores that are as there is some seriously gorgeous things on offer.

Sorry not the greatest photo but this is our new member to mimoo market days! Sadly one of the members from our BrisStyle group Tees2Knees is unable to continue with her stay at home mum run business due to a move overseas with her young family in the next few months and she was selling up all her stock and I cheekily asked if she was willing to sell me her lovely little mannequin and she agreed! It is in perfect condition and I certainly hope this will help me to show off some of the new mimoo summer creations in the months to come. (currently modelling the winter stock!) Let me know if anyone has any suggestions as to what to call my new staff member, little mimoo exclaimed when she she saw it ' oh its a sister' ummm no love.

now that I am embracing all things mother and housewife (mr mimoo is wondering how long it will last? the housewife) but I have started reading my household tips book again after being very impressed with some previous tips that have worked recently, I am keen to continue
