Ohmygosh when i was signing in to do a new post i noticed that the number of posts ive done was at 196 ! OHMYGAWD what on earth have i been raving on about to you all??LOL. Well i gotta say THANKS FOR ALWAYS COMIN' BACK MY LOVELIES! awwww i feel kinda mushy now.
Ok so more raving on...see its part of what i do bestest :)
(oh and yes bestest is most definately a word) *grin*

I have been soooooooooooooo super dooper flat out this past week with orders coming out of every nook and cranny, plus furniture piling up waiting to be painted (with Shane in my ear saying CAN YOU HURRY UP AND GET THAT OUTTA MY GARAGE?? (Mandii can you relate??) Oh geez men just dont get it sometimes....nagging me will only make me go slower out of spite, you'd think he would have learnt that one by now !*giggle giggle*

So anyhoo.....i wanted to show you 2 signs i did for a suuuuuuuuuper sweet friend and now customer too, Cheryl. Im not usually a cream and green gal but when i finished these i kinda loved them!

Now this one i just finished and was pretty tempted to keep it but i'll be good and it will be available in my website later today.

Now for some pretty parcels that have arrived on my doorstep this week.
First off i bought these gorgeous fan cards from my beautiful friend Carol Anne
I pinched your piccies hon, hope thats ok.

I gave the Victorian one to my mummsy as a lil' surprise prezzie and she loved it!
Carol Anne is such a beautiful, kind and caring lady, she sent me these gorgeous vintage sheets as well! Totally made my day.

LUV YOU GIRL and still sending you lots of hugs and kisses.
Make sure you all pop by and say a big HELLO to Carol Anne because she is just beautiful.

THEN yesterday another GORGEOUS parcel arrived from my girl Jannet.
When i saw these on Jannets website i HAD TO HAVE SOME. Then she surprised me by adding extras for mum too!

You have to pop by Jannets website HERE and grab some, they are too sweet to be true!
Jannet even sent a lil prezzie for Sam...a lego car and he was so excited. THANKYOU JANNET YOU ARE A DOLL.
Oh and Jannet YES we have to do that cupcake swap real soon remember!

Okies now im sending you all over to KYLIES blog to say hi !
Kylie and i have become Gal Pals via her visiting my blog regularly, and let me tell you she is a hoot! Her blog is quite new but she's doing a great job (with not so limited computer skills after all hey Kylie, LOL) and i know she would love some new visitors to pop by so she can get to know you all :)

Okies i think that might be it.
See this is why i now have 197 posts...on account of all the raving on.
Well i'll be around for a long time so i say strap yourself in coz theres plenty more raving on in the future!

Now off you all go and have a gorgeous weekend with family, friends and pets alike.

It's funny, I think we all rave on a bit, afterall we are women!! I think that is why blogging was created, so women could talk more!
Love the signs, and you have a great weekend,
