The Story of the New Washing Machine

Yes folks, it just keeps on getting more and more exciting around here doesn't it? First I enthralled you with the tale of the head-lice, and now it's all about the new laundry appliances. Rivotting blogging hey?!


As any good housewife would know (not that I am one. Neither a housewife, nor a good one!) it's essential to have a functioning washing machine. And when your ol' faithful packs it in and calls it a day it's important to replace it as soon as possible!


Because washing clothes is one of those chores that really simply must get done every single day. Especially with young kids who potentially go through 2 or 3 changes of clothes a day.
Wash, rinse, spin. Repeat.
That's why I knew documenting this monotonous daily activity was going to be perfect for the My Mind's Eye Groundhog Day Challenge. In the movie he keeps repeated the same thing over and over, and so that's what I wanted to scrap about. Something that I do every day.


Firstly I thought about going to work and all the stuff I do there. Then I realised that delivering babies is really quite exciting.... and plus I don't think the photos from my point of view are really scrapbook worthy ;-) But just as important is the home-me. The me who looks after our family. Who cooks (sometimes) and cleans and bathes and feeds and cuddles and puts-ice-packs-on and screams at them and loves them whole-heartedly and ..... washes their clothes.
Every Single Day.


It's still supposed to be a bright and happy topic so I used my favourite MME collection - Alphabet Soup, with a good sprinkling of Lost and Found thrown in too. 

Now I know I have missed out on blogging here in a little while. But I've been around! Yesterday my first Evalicious blog post went up. It's another 8.5 x 11" page documenting Munchy losing her first tooth. Check it out here


And I've also got a video tutorial up on the Scrap Friends blog all about how to incorporate stamps and ink techniques into your pages. You can see it here.


Plus, I'm gearing up for the excitement that's coming by this little blog of mine on the weekend. Chooo choo!!

COuldn't afford a washer or the laundromat. So glad I'm past that stage now:):):) And saw your EVALICIOUS blog....yay for you:):):)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
