Striped Grosgrain Ribbon Share

After my first ribbon share, I'm addicted, as you can see from my cards that I'm using my ribbon from the share so I thought I might run a share again in the striped this time. Striped Grosgain 1/2 (1.27cm) to be split 4 ways you will get approx 2.2metres of each colour. Cost is $22.45 for the 6 different colours. That means you will get approx 13.2 metres of ribbon all together. I will be charging no postage. Contact me if you would like to join in

Sorry but more about the Guinea Pigs

This is a update from the earlier post, All Guinea Pigs are doing well. Here's a picture of Imogen holding one of the baby's. It's amazing to see how fast they start moving around. Now we have to think of 4 more names to go with the other 3 guinea pigs. We already have Chocolate, Caramel and Licorice (Mum).
Thanks for looking


WE are proud parents of 4 more guinea pigs. About a month ago we had decide that we would get a family pet. Guinea Pigs was about all my Husband would agreed to, so we went to buy 2 baby girls and the shopkeeper said that she had an adult female that she wanted to give to us for free. To my husbands shock I came home with 3 guinea pigs. About 2 weeks ago we discovered that the adult guinea was expecting and was grow larger and larger every day.

Today she gave birth to 4 tiny guinea pigs... We know have 7 guinea pigs........
