(or however the statement goes..LOL).  We are bIzZy at the Bella “enterprise”.. a.k.a. the little office we all work out of… a.k.a. all 3.5 of us :).  I have  sent many a plate to get made for this Friday’s celebration.. it’s gonna be like a long weekend celebration that is DESPERATELY needed right about NOW (if anyone is suffering from the winter blahs).  So… in celebration of the BELLA LONG WEEKEND, we will have a pseudo little get together on friday night just to see what da SISTAHS thinky about the new artist and addition to the tiddly line.. yes.. I did mention that A wonderful European artist with lots of FLAIR has joined the bella team.. she is FANTABULOSO and you will be impressed- fo’ sho’.  And Christy from Tiddly.. NEED I SAY MORE?  Do people wanna meet more characters to our Tiddly line?  OK, you WILL!

Our get together will happen on my Splitcoast forum located here.  I will bring the stamps and you can bring the cyber food :).. I think I have a spare tablecloth lying around somewhere 🙂

I am expecting a shipment of LUSCIOUS embellishments that I found at CHA from a verrry discreet vendor :).. AMAZING if I do say so myself.. soooo as long as I receive them tomorrow or Friday, I should be featuring them online on Friday!!  YOU EXCITED?  CUZ I AM!!!   There will be another “long bella weekend” surprise so stay tOoOoned.

You just tell your employers/or kids whichever the case may be that you MUST take monday off to recuperate from the goodies presented.  You tell them that DA BELLA said so n’k?

mwah to da sistahs who are NOWHERE as excited as I am



an exciting week ahead :)

Hiya sistahs!!

Things have been crazy at the bella office this past little while.. with me being away and now back trying to catch up etc… well lots of things have been happening and we have yet another artist join our team.. she is FANTAB..  I just love all of my artists so much for contributing to my line and making it more spectacular than I ever expected!!  So on Friday, I will be launching a few new ones and some new ones in Christy’s section (Tiddly Inks).. they are AMAZZING!!  So buckle up your seatbelts cuz Friday is gonna be one crazy day!

Today is “family day” in Ontario.. can you believe it ???  It is basically a new statutory holiday to allow families to spend time together and not work (what is that??).. so we are relaxing at home while I post and check emails (LOL.. so much for family day)..

I should be receiving some goodies this week from CHA and as I mentioned I am developing a new product overseas which makes me tingle all over and get soooo excited… basically the only hint I can give is that it is a new type of embellishment 🙂


can you feel it?



Mwah to da sistahs who are as excited as I am


roll out the red carpet….

We are finalllly home.  WE woke up sooo early yesterday morning (4:45 AM) and we took a cabby to the airport and we upgraded out tickets to ECONOMY PLUS.. now do Nicky and I travel in style OR WHAT?  Anyway.. what do we know about economy plus.. we stood in line for first class ticket holders.. (lol).. we get through.. then we get to the gate and whaddya know?  they are calling the first class passengers to the “red carpet” to preboard the plane.. and then once they board, there is a whole “hoopla” about closing off the ‘red carpet section’.  Would you like to know what this red carpet was?  It was a car mat.  maybe 5*7 in size, it was red and they wouldn’t let ANYONE step on it unless you were first class… well DA BELLA just wanted to stomp, jump up and down on it and scream “HAHA”.. lol.. am I sick or what?

Anyway.. so we upgrade to economy plus cuz we were SHOVED like sardines on the way there.. this option gave us a whole 5 inches of leg room.. we were SO EXCITED.  so we get on the plane and sit in our seats.. the good news is… that we had TONS of legroom.. the bad news is, the BOTTOMSIDE of the anatomy had to SQUISH it’s way into the seat.. how devastating!  oh well.. at least I could stretch my legs 🙂

Went to work today to see how Ryan and Dena managed so nicely without me 🙂  ’twas nice. When I was in Anaheim, I forgot to mention that I had to buy a REEBOK 30″ dufflebag to bring all of my catalogs back… Ryan almost freaked out when he saw me rolling that baby into the office.. so much fun reviewing what was purchased and got excited all over again!!

We have lots of plans and ideas.. you have no idea what will hit you!! I will be releasing a new line next week.. it is AMAZING!  there will also be more images in the Tiddly Inks collection..

Lots of exciting things!! can’t wait to share with da sistahs!


now i lost my credit card.

Can you BELIEVE IT?  from my glasses to my Visa card???  Well I was told  by Nicky that it MUST be in my purse cuz I tend to “dump” things in and sure enough.. it WASN”T THERE.  I retraced my steps and finally found it at a restaurant we went to 2 nights ago.  Why did it take me that long to realize that it wasn’t there???  Cuz I am SOOOOOO tired.

 Sistahs, we had the bestest time!  Aside from missing my family, all was great.. ate well (WW starts tomorrow AGAIN), shopped our hearts out, and met the most wonderful sistahs.. will post about them when I get back but can I tell you that there were so many talented and amazing sistahs in one room?

Ok, nuff about DAT.  CAn I tell you how many goodies I have ordered?  I designed my own embellishments as well.. I hope you love them.. so things will be coming in over the next 3-4 weeks and I will introduce them as they come in.. so stay tooooooooNED.

 leaving in the morning and miss you lots.


mwah to da sistahs who don’t have to FLY for a MILLION hours.


my feet hurt already and I have a blister


Sistahs!  The show hasn’t even started and I am soooo tired and blistery.  We are having a blast, met tons of people  while I limp (lol), and I already have an adventure to tell.

Yesterday our friend Natalie, the owner of Scrapbook Centrale in Montreal (DA best store evah) picked us up from the convention center to go for lunch and a little shopping… so here I am looking all glitzy and sparkly with my bare escentuals makeup (another story I may share later) and my sparkly sunglasses.. we go into the restaurant and we are sitting down and I am searching for my glasses.  My regular glasses, you know?  so I am searching.. dump my purse and searching.  NO GLASSES.  I proceed to panic.  Natalie runs to the car to check there.  Nicky is consoling me that for the rest of the show it is OK to wear SUNGLASSES….LOL.. and at NIGHT PARTIES.. it will be OK to wear sunglasses.. what would people thinky???? Either that I am a addicted to some substance and hiding behind my sunglasses ORRRRRRRR that I think I am a superstar (LOL) and need to wear sunglasses in public not to get recognized (just laughed my HEAD off here)… so we are talking, blabbing, gossiping (with my sunglasses on) and all I was thinking about were my little Chanel’s all alone somewhere…

After lunch we returned to the convention center and I proceeded to go to the information desk, who pointed to the coat check (lost and found) about 67 miles from that desk… once I got to coat check, they told me to go to the show office.. I said “OK thank you!” all excited that I would find my glasses…went to show office who proceeded to send me to registration (LOL) another 85 miles to get there… I go to registration they look at me like “WHY would someone send you HERE?”.. then I speak to a security services officer who sends me outside to NOTHING.. then I speak to a security guard outside who sends me to the SECURITY OFFICE… which I couldn’t find (at this point I know you are are so annoyed with this story but TOO BAD).. I then called from there “RECEPTION” and they say to me “WHAT KIND OF GLASSES ARE THEY?” i said CHANEL’s.. and they say to me BUT WHY ARE THEY IN A BULGARI CASE?  and I Said WHO CARES.. DO YOU HAVE MY GLASSES? and she said yes.. so I walked another 67 miles escorted by a lovely security officer where I found my “eyesight”.. at least i got my exercise for the year, no?

We are hanging out with DA coolest people.. the list is too long to even mention

OK sistahs, gots TA GO.. will get you lots of goodies

miss you 🙂

mwah to da sistahs who don’t have blistahs



you asked for it.. you GOTS it

and the winners are….. Jamie, Susan and Allison guessing 4 friends.. I picked the first 3 in chronological order (please email me privately with name and address info!).. thank you all for posting! NOW I KNOW HOW TO GET YOU OUTTA DA WOODWORK! LOL. As I mentioned both the artist and the artwork mean so much to me.. I develop lasting relationships with my artists and we work SO HARD together to come up with amazing images.  Once this mystery artist has her WEBSITE up and running, we will make a formal introduction.. I can’t wait for you to meet her!! THERE ARE SO MANY IMAGES that will come out in this collection… the artist is TERRIBLY clever and so imaginative, it’s a BLAST working with her.

So please meet Ella and her friends who come in ALL shapes and sizes and the sentiment to go with them.  I just love it and it means so much and it is SOOOO true.. Makes me happy 🙂

and since you have been so nice and so good.. and since I am going away for almost a week (will try to update my blog from there and will miss you terribly) I decided to share FASHIONISTAbella.  She goes so nicely with this sentiment.

would LOVE to hear what you think!



a looloo we will go…

Ok so Friday I will be OFFFF like a prom dress to CHA.. I am SOOO excited you have no idea.. first of all to be surrounded by AMAZING people (who I have never met but adore).. , amazing product and the ability to sleep a full night without interruption :).. I mean, could you ask for anything more? LOL

So to comemmorate (sp?) my departure, I was thinkin’ that we should revisit ella and some of her OTHER friends.. would be cute, no?  Will launch tomorrow afternoon.. let’s see what you come up with!

How many other friends do you think she has in this stamp?  Please leave a comment with your guess and you will win that stamp and a bag of baublies of your choice!
