it is SO beautiful out

So I decided to post some flowers! They are called Bella’s garden and they are so much fun to colour!  I actually used Tombow markers direct to paper and the knots in this card is driving me bonkers cuz I love them  so… get ready, every single solitary card I will make for the next little while will have those knots..LOL!

I hope you likey and it makes you feel springy!

Ok, so I want to let you sistahs know what’s going on over here… Orders are behind so if your status is pending, please please please don’t fret and forgive me :).. Being a consumer myself, I SO understand that you want it and you want it now.. but I can’t keep up! LOL.  I never ever sell out.. I always have stock and if I don’t I ensure I get the next day.. so it is not a matter of that.. it is a matter of manpower.   I am not complaining at all and PLEASE keep ordering but it just will take a little longer.. I am at the 7 business day mark but will be working all weekend to make progress so you will get updates most of the weekend!  I found a little office I told you about, actually 2 offices connected by a french door (when you come visit, just call and we will put up the coffee get lots of good food and stamp our HEADS off  n’k?  I promise).. DH arranged to take tomorrow off so that he can wait for Ikea to deliver this monstrosity of a piece of furniture.. quite nice and handy but GIGUNGOUS.  So he is having a truck sent here to move stuff from here to there.. but I have nothing prepared!  I told him in between packing over the next coupla weeks, I will try to bring more and more stuff there.. he was less than impressed.

Did I tell you that my hub is a NEAT FREAK?  I am like pigpen in PEANUTS where there is always a cloud of dust following him? (Mine is not dust, just rubber and ink **LOL**)..So I hear him carrying something up the stairs, knocking the walls, banging the stairs and out emerges Ryan with an antique pine table that was in our storage in the basement and out comes “I think this would look AMAZING in your new digs”… with a big goofy smile THRILLED that the stuff will be OUTTA the house.. so I said fine, it could go.. then out comes 4 leather chairs for the work table (yes it will be all set up for you)… Where the hell is he pulling this stuff from????? Anyway if it makes him happy getting rid of stuff then so be it.. at least I have a new place! 

I am also a bit of a control freak where I need to be in charge of everything at all times including rubber (finally gave that up to a very trustworthy Ruby).. I have been screamed at by many and have finally hired some part time help to get me through and allow me to feed you even more stuff!! (Is that possible??)

OMG.. haven’t you been happy with my 3 line entries over the last coupla weeks?  Now you got another dose of Em.


you can always email me.. I am hereeeeee…


wanna see a new fella?

hmmmmmmmm ok, let’s make a game out of it

wanna see






sistahs… you choose… NOW DON”T SAY ALL n’k?

write back and I will tally up the votes when I think it is OVAHHH!

MWAH to all (and perhaps my new fella *winks*)



ummm did anyone notice

that I have had a ‘search’ button built into my site?  Located at top right… I AM LOVING IT… wanna know how that got to be born?  Well, a very bella-ignorant hubby was shopping on line for his wife (how Fella-ish of him, no?).. I was so impressed.  In any event, he emailed me in utter frustration recommending I have a search button cuz he couldn’t find anything his wife wanted..LOL. He managed to buy her her prezzies and all ended well but I thought it was so cute.. so for all you hubbyfellas out there, you can now use the search button to find everything on your wives’ lists.. HOW NICE AM I?  LOL.  I am so happy that that frustrated husband emailed me or else I wouldn’t even have thought of it!  Well maybe eventually I would.  but you know what I mean.  I so happy with my search button.

You have to try it out! LOL.

I am SUCH a loser.

mwah again



you gonna be SOOO HAPPY

So sistahs,

I decided to reveal two new bellas, bubble bella and craveabella.. OY I AM IN LOVE!!! I think you will likey!!  I LOOOOVEYYYY.  I am going back to work but just wanted to touch base and let you know that some fellas will be making their appearance soon too!!! So keep on checkin please..

Let me know what you think



I posted some scalloped frames!

They are in the funky frames section!  I LOVE these circles cuz they are not so perfect..LOL.  That’s how I am… I don’t like things that are so matchy matchy and perfect (obvious, no?) The large one does fit in the mega punch and the three of them together are so cute for a background!

I hope you always enjoy my ‘imperfections’

Mwah on a bleary (now is THAT a word?) Sunday morning


I just designed this invite!

Phew.. took no time and now I have to produce 30 of them.. this is for my little daughter Jayden’s birthday party in May.. I may delegate one of my friends to do this as I don’t have time!  I have been working day in and day out.. there is still a bit of a delay (7 business days) but I will survive and get your orders out!  I am moving into a studio this week as well and have hired some elves to help me out.. so if you bear  (not the animal) with me, I promise I will come through!!  I am also sourcing out a new way to ship your goods as it seems to be taking a while.. the only downfall is… (drumroll) the price.. will be higher.. I will not force you to use this service however but I will offer it as an option. What else?  Went to an all you can eat sushi place for supper.. OMG.. it was so YUM! 

As I mentioned in a previous post, I will be going to the Creativ Festival on Saturday.. I believe I will be there probably around 11:00 until 3 ish.. I will be hanging around the Cherished Scrapbooks booth and wandering around buying stuff I don’t need (for a change) So… if anyone wants to come and visit (PLEASE???).. I think maybe something bellaish should distinguish you from the rest.. maybe a bella badge? (loserish?) or a flowah or something… or you can just spot me and give me a GINORMOUS hug and say you are a SISTAH..  so who’s coming?? WHO??? TELL ME???


Oh, of course got caught on a tangent.. here’s the invite
