bellarific friday

it’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY and some SNEAKY PEEKIES!! you READY sistahs????

Hi ho… Stamping Bella Here..LOL (said in Kermit D. Frog’s voice.. I bet you are all doing it now..bWaHahahaha)

So I shared a picture yesterday of what I am going through.. All for the sake of da children.. LOL.. and you think they appreciate having there MAMA close to them?  Hand toting their HOT lunches to school, picking them up etc…????  Yup.. they sure do.  And I finally feel at “peace”.. with where I am.  Where I am in terms of being a mama.. in terms of being an entrepreneur.. in terms of being a wife, a friend and an artist.  FINALLY.  I swear, this 40 thing is turning out to be a GOOD thing. Now the only bases I need to cover is exercise and weight loss… and yess I will get there at some point.   So there you have it.. a candid shot of da BELLA.  I do want to share more here.. and I will.  Cuz I am FORTY.. and I CAN..LOL

Another point to mention is that we are TRYING our BESTEST to process your orders as quickly as possible.. but the rubbah is now in 14 rooms and we are trying to arrange and organize as quickly as possible… so please bear with us .. things should be smooooth sailing after next week!

Oh and anothAH thing..LOL..  Instagram.  What can I say.  I am in LOVE with this website/application.. dunno what you call it.  It is such a warm, amazing community.  Unlike Facebook which to me is a bit sterile.  Unlike Twitter where you know people are SHOVING as many words as they can in a little text box.  Instagram represents who you are.. what you do during the day.. your art.. your habits..your home.. etc.. it makes you get to know the people you are following.  I have met MANY wonderful people there, and we all support each other.. it’s amazing.  I urge you to join.. and follow the people you are interested in following.. just to get a little snapshot of their lives.. it makes them human to you.  REALLY.  GO DO IT. NOW.  k?

Oh and speaking of next week.. In the midst of this chaos, I decided to release some MAJORLY gorgeous images… (probably by next friday)… Until then, we will be doing some sneaky peeky’s showing you the goodness.. so keep coming back ya hear?  and maybe say hi.. I like when da sistahs say hi.  hmph.

OK so now let’s discuss some winnah’s from last week’s bellarific friday challenge shall we?
