 Olivia Faith Designs

Hi! My name is Olivia, and I am 12 years old and love to craft! It all started with me first learning to crochet. I saw some cute crocheted animals, and thought, “Aww! I want to make those!” and I started teaching myself. It took lots of determination, but I did it! I wanted to share the joy that I felt in a finished product, so I improved and improved, and I now sell my craft items in lots of places! I love expanding my selection and trying out new ideas. I have a large variety of items, like ornaments to hats, and stuffed animals to blankets! And I’m always trying a new pattern, so there is always variety! Even though these are strange times, we can still have a great Christmas with the best ornaments and stocking stuffers! Thanks for supporting me and my craft business!

Tami Vacca, Norwex Independent Consultant

WEBSITE

Hi! I’m Tami and I’m a busy mom from Kirkland.  When I had first heard about Norwex, I was literally kicking my family out of the house to clean my bathroom because the chemicals made me sick and I didn’t want my small boys to be around them.  I was floored that I could clean my house with water – and my kids could help me!  I love to help people reduce chemicals in their lives by teaching them how to clean with Norwex microfiber and water. I love how easy and fast it is to clean with Norwex.  The Safe Haven 5 package is a great place to start with Norwex. It includes EnviroCloth: This multi-purpose, do everything cleaning cloth will work hard for you, making cleaning a snap! Use to wipe down surfaces (removing up to 99% of bacteria!), clean bathrooms, spot clean floors and carpets, spot clean upholstery, and SO much more! Window Cloth: Use to clean windows, mirrors, stainless steel, and other shiny surfaces- simply use after wiping with an EnviroCloth, or use a spray bottle with water and follow with the cloth to dry! Dusting Mitt: Just like it sounds, this is a handy mitt for dusting. The microfiber holds a static charge, so dust is attracted to it, instead of flinging it around. Use damp for stubborn dust, or to clean blinds and window screens (without even taking them out!) Cleaning Paste: For extra tough jobs, the cleaning paste is a must. Remove stubborn grime and gunk, stuck-on residue, even permanent marker! Pairs especially well with a scrubby sponge-like our Spirisponge or EnviroSponge. Laundry Detergent: Norwex’s own formula, safe for all kinds of sensitive skin, and free of harmful ingredients. Excellent for your cloths and all your regular laundry too. Incredibly concentrated- you can use as little as ½ teaspoon per load in an HE washer!
