Welcome to my blog! I’m thrilled you’re here, and hope that you become a regular visitor. I’ll be blogging about papercrafting, all things vintage, life, art, dogs, happiness, living beyond oneself . . . .and anything else that pops in my mind.
Did you arrive here from my website, “Bella Cosa Vintage”. I hope you enjoyed looking around at my products and creations. Bella Cosa was actually “born” in 2002, underwent a major transformation in about 2008, and is now “reborn” once again.
I would love to chat with you here on my blog. Please use the button to the right labeled “Follow by Email” to list your email address and be notified whenever I write a new post. I love to grow my circle of “vintage friends.” I also hope you’ll comment here as the mood strikes you, so this becomes a discussion, rather than a “speech”. I’d love to know what you’d like to see here, if you have questions or comments. . . or just want to view and read “silently”, I understand.
. . . .and so we begin! It seems appropriate to show you a picture today of one of my favorite card creations . . . a Christmas card (my favorite holiday!) made with Graphic 45 papers (my favorite papers!) and a genuine vintage button (vintage is my gig!) This is a card from my new line of cards and papercrafts called “Grammy’s Buttons”. Each item has a genuine vintage button on it . . . from my button treasure box I’ve been collecting for years. I know from my past blog that many of you love seeing cards and other papercrafts that I’ve created, and that warms my heart. You’ll see them here often!
It’s hard to believe the season is upon us . . . seems like I just put away last year’s decorations!
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? I’ll be talking about Christmas a lot, for the next several weeks, and would love for you to share your “happy holidays” thoughts. Enjoy the card . . . and enjoy easing into a sometimes chaotic season with joy and calm . . . remember the “reason for the season!”
