This day last year I started a blog, originally it was called Cre8tive Outlet and that is exactly what I wanted, or rather needed, it to be for me. A way of expressing a need to be creative or at least enjoy the creativeness (is that even a word?) of others. At the beginning of the year this little blog morphed into what it is today - Olive & Joy.
It's been a fun ride and I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you that have come on that ride with me. From my very first readers who followed me over here from my first blog, to the awesome people that pop in and say hi, to the lovely lurkers who read Olive & Joy but are perhaps a little too shy to comment, to new readers who've found me - you all know who you are and I just wanted to say a big heartfelt THANKS!
On another note, I'm in the middle of turning a room upstairs into our new office. It's halfway there, so I will be sure to show you more as it happens. At the moment I've borrowed one of our dining chairs to use until my retro desk chair is reupholstered - I can't wait to see it all newly upholstered in sunny yellow fabric. I've had the chair in storage for a couple of years now! It took me forever to find a fabric which was just perfect, well no that isn't true, I found the fabric I loved pretty early on. But the thing was that one couldn't buy the fabric, only the sofa covers made from the fabric. I guess you could say I went to great lengths and it took much patience in order to use the fabric I really wanted, but more on that another time.
