Hello everyone,

Well it has been an interesting week I still donot have my ADSL internet up yet so I am doing this on the go slow pre paid stick which is frustrating to say the least.

Some of the wall decals arrived this week for the Salon and I have put them up so here ae some photos of them on the walls, the others should arrive this week so I will take some piccy's of them and upoad when I have attatched them to the walls. So far I am very happy with them and I think they will finish off the decore nicely. I will be getting the random geneator to do the picking of the winner for my giveaway later today so stay tuned for that :) Good luck to all who have entered I have a nice selection of goodies ready to send off to the lucky winner.

I hope your all well and Happy have a great week

Hugs Olivia

Hi  everyone :)

In celebration of my grand opening of my little salon I have decided to have a "GIVE AWAY" All you need to do is have a look at my blog and leave a comment and a suggestion of things I could have for sale in my Salon. Keep in mind, I already have lots of cosmetics and nail art items for sale, I have also made some yummy lavender filled heat packs. :)

 The prize will be a mystery bag of goodies, which will be full to the brim with lots crafty bits & pieces :) I have had fun this morning sorting out what to include. The givaway will run for one week and I will draw it sometime next Sunday.

So ladies put your thinking caps on and send in your suggestions

Love and Hugs

Well hello all my blogland friends, it has been quite some time since I have updated my blog. I have been unwell and had a little spell away from the computer.

I am also in the process of changing al our phones and internet and Mobiles over to Craig's buisness and unfortunately it has been more difficult than anticipated. I am still without my internet so am using a prepaid modem and the connection and signal strenght is unreliable. Hopefully I will have it all sorted b the end of this week.

Since I was last here, I have added to more fur babies to my kitty family Jasper and Winston. All my new fabrics came in, I officially got engaged :) and I have opened up a little waxing and Nail Salon in Lilydale the village I live in. :)

So without further ado here are some pics for you all to leave comment on.

First up my lovely engagement and wedding rings I am ordering a second wedding band the same as the one in the photo and I will have one infront and one behind the engaement ring.

Say hello to Winston & Jasper our new additions to our kitty family.  Winston is long haired and Jasper is medium haired. He was an orphaned kitten and is about 9 weeks old but very very small he has doubled in size since I bought him home but he has no teeth except for his K9's on both top and bottom jaws. But very very cute and very very demanding.:) He is actually a lot cuter than this photo it is not the most flattering one. Winston is about 8 weeks old and is bigger than Jasper and a very greedy litle mite I will have to watch him that I don't over feed him and make him fat.

This is an updated photo of Triv and Harley they have grown so much i the past few weeks since I introduced them and I think they are going to be quite large cats.

There is also one of Jasper and Jack the oldest and the youngest and the biggest and smallest, You can really see how tiny Jasper s when he is next to Jack who at 14kg is far to huge, you can see on his head a nasty abcess which I have been treating.
And this is one of all 8 cats having their dinner. I will not get any more now that will do me for awhile :)

These are some photos of Mum's Puppy a Gordon Setter, as huge as he is he is only 10 months old and Harley. they are totally in love with each other and everytime mum tries to groom Laird, Harley gets up on the table and has a smooch. Laird tries to pick him up and carry him ike a toy and Harley does not object.:)

Next are all the photos I have taken of my salon, I only have one wall unit to put together in there today and I found some lovely vynal wall decals of Purple butterflies and flowere that are almost identical to my buisness cards they should hopefully be here within the next 3 weeks and I will photgraph them and post them. I have a passion for all shades of purple and I thought Butterflies were so pretty so that is how I have done the decor in the salon. I hope you all like it as much as I do.

I havn't been completely craftless in the past couple of months I have started on this Table runner all done in felt :)

I was waiting on a lot of fabrics to come in from the US. well I got the first box but waited and waited for the second box I contacted the seller and they sent me all the forms to claim a refund and I had printed them and filled them out and was ready to scan and send back when lo and behold they turned up on Friday, they had gone via Germany and Spain back to the Us and finally to me it is very well travelled fabric there is in excess of 70 yards. I will be hosting a giveaway in the next few days in celebration of my Engagement :)

Well my lovely friends that is me all caught up :) I hope everyone is well and happy. I will sort out a givaway in the next day or two and let you know on the forum when it is open for entry.

Love and Hugs Olivia xxoo
