Silver Bella


Last year I remember reading blog after blog talking about the amazing time they had at Silver Bella.  I looked at all the incredible art they created and envied the time they had with other creative women. 

I can't explain how I feel when I am around other creative women…it truly nourishes my soul. 

This year I was not going to miss this amazing opportunity. 

I sat at my computer….7:55….7:58…..7:59….8:00…..register!  My husband looked at me a little crazy because I almost acted as if I didn't type fast enough the classes would disappear.  I did have grounds for worry because I have heard that it was half sold out in 13 minutes.  13 MINUTES!!!! 

I am now registered and have to patiently wait for another seven more months.  I am not a very patient woman! 

If you are going please email me or leave a comment.  I would love to meet up with you and maybe we will even have a class together.



And in other exciting news….the winner of the beautiful pillow from Petit Coterie is Allegra.  You can thank my oldest son for picking your number.  Congratulations!!!  You are going to LOVE your pillow.  Please email me and let me know whether you would like Michelle to send you the Ampersand or No. 12 pillow.  Michelle, thank you to for your generous giveaway and wonderful interview!  I have loved getting to know you better.  Everytime I look at my lovely pillows I have this incredible and sweet person that now goes along with them.

    Congratulations, Jeanne! I would love to go to Silver Bella, but it will have to be next year since I have my big plans to go all the way down to Texas for the big Round Top/Warrenton Flea Market in the fall. Silver Bella sounds so amazing, it will be hard to wait until next year…

    how fun to be going to silver bella. last year i had no idea what it was but the more i read, the cooler it looked. i won’t be going to “the ball” this year so i am hoping for lots of good photos to pour over when everyone returns.
    all of this still feels very new to me. blogging, crafting, selling! what a wonderful thing blogging is!

    Hey there! Thanks for stopping by and…WE ARE GOING TO SILVER BELLA TOGETHER! Yay!
    You are going to have SO much fun! Really. You will.
    My gosh your blog is beautiful! I haven’t made my rounds yet to everyone, but I will!
    About the magazines…I am DONE with Barnes & Nobles. They never stock on time, it’s 45 minutes away, etc. So to save all the hassle, I subscribed to my Somerset favorites. Then they came out with new titles, oh my! So I then logged in to Stampington & Company, ( & subscribed to the monthly E-letter (Post Script). They send it to you about once a month. In the issue, they will preview the upcoming magazines and offer them at 12.99 instead of 14.99 with free shipping. This is for Post Script subscribers only through Stampington. And the secret is…I get the magazines that I pre-ordered FASTER than I get my subscriptions! Go figure!
    Hope this helps!
    My mad woman days are over, hopefully yours will be too! 😉

    Jeanne I won’t be able to participate in Silver Bella this year – not in the budget! But! I think I’ll go to the vendor vair portion and at least be able to purchase something.
    I hope you like visiting Omaha – my home town!
