cute quotes Pictures, Images and Photos

I hope everyone has had a gorgeous day celebrating Christmas 2009 with family and friends. Blessings sent to those who had a day by themselves without. 

What a day! Such a leadup to the event and its gone in a blink! Why is that so?! It should last forever sometimes....We woke at home to open pressies, loads of photos and video shots. Breaky and dressed then jumped into car to travel off to Ballarat. This year we celebrated it with my husbands family. 

Not alot of sleep cause our little one doesnt like sleeping anywhere else than his bed, nor do I to be honest, nothing better than your own bed. 

So by time we got home we all were a wee bit tired and ready to lay our heads down to sleep.

The last two days my husband and my eldest son have been travelling up to Qld in my car (very weird to have no car) well there is one in garage but without a car seat. Wednesday we fly up to be with them and travel on to visit friends at Maroochydore then the next day we travel onto Bundaberg.....My old home town!

I havent seen my family (Grandparents, Sisters, Cousins, Auntie and Uncle and close friends) in 3 years. So I cannot wait for the time when I can give them a hug for real. They certainly are in for a shock since they last saw my boys. They will get to meet our new little man for the first time as well. We fly home on the 11th so I will be away from Dec 30th through to the Jan 11th.

So it will be an occassion!

Anyways am wishing you all that come past to visit my Overall Being behind the scenes blog a Blessed New Year and holiday season.

Overall Being Donates Vouchers to Help L'il Aussie Prems

When you think about children they always bring joy and love to your heart. Remember the first time you found out you were pregnant? I do and oh the joy that was felt will never leave me nor will the first moment when you see the very first ultrasound......but what would happen if at the time of birth your little one comes too early and they need medical assistance......that would break your heart.

Well Overall Being is a proud sponsor to L'il Aussie Prems.....a business that devotes its time in raising money and aid to families who have unfortunately had a baby/babies premmature.

Julia devotes so much time and effort into this business single handed around the family that she has at home. Absolutely remarkable.

L'il Aussie Prems has now a Premmie Bag.....which Julia sends out of her own back and funding to families that require that little bit more help.

Overall Being has just done up 40+ Gift Vouchers to be included in these. I am so humbled to be able to help and give a little bit back in helping these families and to possibly lighten the load whilst their little angels get stronger!

If there is something that you would like to give this year......go to L'il Aussie Prems and donate to sponsor a Premmie Bag....they dont cost much. Every little cent helps.

I wanted when creating this voucher in mind try to make it more personal cause of where it was going too. I am so happy with how it turned out! Now all I need to do is cut them out and post them off!

Overall Being's First Minky Play Rug

Oh what a delish little treasure this has turned out to be.......Someone recently described our blankets as "liquid gold"......have never even thought them as that but oh yes what a great description.

Imgaine your little one lying on a bed of liquid gold all warm and snug playing with this.......

The one side is the most softest and lushious side of pink....with little triangles of more minky with ribbons for play and stimulation of the mind....the ribbons can then be used to attach your other toys too when in the pram or cot.

The other side is a contrasting of dots....pinks, browns and chocolates......perfect if you just want to use the other side as their blanket in bed.....

This Girls Play Rug is available for a quick sale today.....email me for further information

Auric Healing Colour Wheel

Gaze into the center of the Auric Healing Colour Wheel above on the screen; or
If you prefer, print it out as it is a better bet for the visualization due to the glaring effects of the screen.

Stand 4 – 7 feet away or whichever you feel comfortable with.

Soon the pattern will begin to move and reflect with your auric colors.

Your auric color(s) may change due to many effects, including healing, negative situations, emotional states, and as we progress on our life path, we may progress through events and develop a new state of being.

This is good as a Concentration exercise or meditation as well.

This chart will explain about your colour that you see......

Have Fun! Mine today I got green....lets see what I get tomorrow ....


What a day! Filled with utter excitment at all levels.

Most of all a day that is filled with so much gratitude to Michelle for believing in my business enough to share it with all her followers!! My soul was so touched to see where she had posted about my website and me.

Here is a copy of what I have already published on my website.....To view the whole section you can view the interview on Michelles blog and website.

Overall Being one of the first featured businesses on The House of Vinter!!!

Overall Being is so very excited when asked if we would like to be featured on the above areas......please follow the links shown in the blurb below or by clicking any of the banners above.
Michelle is a mother of 9, and has been a freelance writer for a number of years. She is currently writing for the online magazine Connect2Mums as well as for her own forum Celebrating Women and Business Women Unite where she was named a top article writer for the week of June 30, 2009. She also runs 2 Little Hands 2 Little Feet and her other fabulous spot The House of Vinter.
To view anything from Michelle's site's please click on the above name's/banner's which will take you direct to her pages.
I would like to extend a massive thankyou and show of gratitude for the support that Michelle has give me in such a short span of knowing her. She is an inspiration to everyone!
Here is a snippet of what is posted on her The House of Vinter about Overall Being and Lisa Kavenagh (Me :) ) Or if you wanted to read about it click the the website link "The House of Vinter"
1. How long have you been operating Overall Being in Victoria? It’s a great name for a business.

Overall Being has been operating in Victoria since 2003.

2. What was your inspiration for your business name and logo?

I wanted something that tied everything up that I have the love for. I love aromatherapy and fine gifts. Because I am also a qualified therapist I needed something that would flow with my qualifications aswell. My Logo symbolises purity and wholeness. The flower in there is the Lotus. The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck. This is mind I believe is me.

3. Do you operate your business from home or do you have a shop front?

I operate from home and believe it or not on my kitchen table, downstairs in a nook desk and loungeroom :) So I take over the house really, much to the annoyance to my darling husband. I would absolutely love to have a shop. Filled with aromatherapy, Minky blankets, warm brewed coffee and hot chocolate and the comfort of a couch for visitors to sit and take a moment whilst shopping.

4. How do you choose your stock?

I choose organic or natural first of all. Then comes quickness of delivery. I tend to try buy Australian made raw materials but sometimes there are moments that I do have to go over to USA. I also support other work at home businesses. I believe without the strength of the working at home range our industry would lack the love that these businesses have in them.

5. What are your best sellers?

My best sellers are Minky Blankets, then aromatherapy but my new Scrabble Tiled Pendants are looking like they may throw all that out.
I have deliberately left off the other answers and questions to enable you to visit Michelles site to view and read more :))) Look forward to hearing your feedback.
Everything that Michelle has gone through truly shows what a remarkable soul person she is. Filled with such love and devotion and purity.

Please support :)

Whoa nelly!!!

Didnt someone say you should be able to pull on the stirrups and raines to stop things.....well I cant find them this week....so many things and so little time....but i suppose if I stop for a moment to breathe I realise that these things can be stopped and can wait.

I just hate knowing that things are hovering over my head and little things that I want done "yesterday" is still there.....

Still fighting off those demons that lurk amongst the midst of the unknown....doesnt help when those friends who say they will be there for you never are,.....

why do people say they will help you and be there for you never show up!? I dont know why people would waste the air that they breathe to do those things.

oh life....

well my eldest son turns 13 this friday....how many circles i have turned over the past 13years.....how many differing things that have happened in that time aswell....

* getting married
* moving to a new state
* loosing my mother
* having three more children


To sit and ponder that is quite daunting really.

Have just spent the last week or so revamping my website....which I am quite pleased with the result....even if I am not anywhere webmastery (love my made up words lol) qualified! Added new info,....a new logo (which will detail that soon about the fabulous Leisa)..........and new products.

Ok breathe moment.....

hmmmm can smell my marinated chicken in the oven in that moment.....house smells so yummy

Ok where was I....oh yes.....

Finally all finished.....even managed to fit in making gift vouchers and fundraising info aswell which what I wanted to do weeks ago.

Anyways that is an update...a very quick one at that for my thoughts....

Now onto next blog entry...........

MillaRuby Designs and Overall Being joining winter forces...

I am so thrilled ....I have so much going on atm that is making me filled with so much excitement.

Caddie which I am calling CC cause I find her incredibly talented (Creative Caddie)! at MillaRuby Designs and myself are teaming up together to bring everyone such gorgeous and incredibly unique gifts.

Beanies and Blankets.....all made to suit everyones taste and love of snuggles. All our gifts will be tailored and matched to each order so they match perfectly. Imagine your little one snuggling with a Blanket and wearing a matching beanie....what a gorgeous creation is that :)

Not only with this exciting news I am now a proud sponsor of L'il Aussie Prems. Such a cause that needs to be helped. My heart just melts and my emotions rise when I think about this gorgeous little treasures having such a rough start to their life.

To this I have donated a Blanket for them to use in their next competition. I am so thrilled they loved my idea.
If there is anyway you can help L'il Aussie Prems then please do so.

Anyways that is what I had to share....such excitement!!

Oh I cant wait to create using this fabric. Why does it have to take so long to get here hehe wish I could snap my fingers and its here. I just couldnt decide on which patchwork blanket to make first so thought why not ! I will do all three.

That way I can offer it off as competition prize.

What another busy month.....Exciting though nevertheless teaming up with Caddie at Millaruby Designs. My Blankets and Caddies Beanies will be a sure hit as gifts for any little one.

My eldest sons shoulder is on the mend....football has alot to answer for I recon but how can a parent say no to the love of sport for their child...*shrugs*

My second born Nicholas is off to swim four events at MSAC this saturday...oh cant wait...he was abit nervous to be honest as couldnt master the turns under water....He sure didnt look like he was struggling with it this week at squad training!

Lots of networking I have done this week.....love helping other wahm's. By giving back I believe it brings good energy to you.

My PR Marketing Agency is about to start up soon and I will be one of their first clients...so cannot wait to work with them. Kirsty is the best! With all her expertise in the parenting field I am hoping she can boost Overall Being out of the sky.

I do know though my overseas PR Agency who I used to give a Blanket too for Shiloh Jolie-Pitt absolutely loved my Blanket. So did Angelina! What a buzz! Now fingers crossed that I see them using it in a photo in a magazine :)

Well should be doing washing....am browsing past all that ironing I have sitting there...where is that fairy?! Holidaying probably in Greek Isles.

Anyways am off....can hear Jack calling me....he is probably found himself in his brothers room and terrorising everything in sight...........

Warm Blessings to all that read....
