I’m so happy to be writing to you . . . .it’s been a long time coming, I know! Thank you to those who subscribed – again!!! – after my latest technological mess. Technology is truly wonderful, but it drives me crazy! Hopefully, things will run more smoothly now. I will be posting here 2-3 times a week, as Fall is getting busy. I have lots of fun things to show and tell you, so stay tuned!
Let’s start with classes and events!
October 6, 7, & 8 Bella Cosa Vintage will be at the Vintage Marketplace at Prospector’s Nursery in Nevada City, CA. Saturday, the 8th, Theresa will be doing her “Halloween Boo” banner workshop from 9:30 – 11:30 and her “Pumpkin Easel Cards” in the afternoon from 1:00 – 3:00. (Come by the breezeway or the “barn, where she’ll be set up) when you can, at those times. Aren’t these too cute!?!
Dress up your home . . . your office . . . or your kids’ room with the cutest “BOO” around! Workshop fee is only $20.
Oct. 22 – My friend Katrina will be holding her Stampin’ Up workshop in Lincoln, CA. We had so much fun at her workship this month, creating Fall and holiday cards and a cute treat bag with a tag. If you’re “local”, let me know if you’d like to join us in the fun on the 22nd from 10:00 – 12:00 and I’ll add your name to our list!
Nov. 3, 4, & 5 – Come see us at the Vintage Marketplace at Prospector’s again. (It’s “Christmas Open House” at the Marketplace this month!) We love having our friends drop by our booth which is in the “barn”, right across the breezeway from the “main house”. If you’ve never been to Prospector’s or the Marketplace, you’re missing a lot of fun shopping! Our fellow vendors are the BEST at finding marvelous vintage, DIY, repurposed, and sometimes just cute products for you each month!
Saturday, Nov. 12 – 10:00 – 1:00 My “Pine Cone Christmas” workshop will meet at Theresa’s office, 144 Hughes Rd., Grass Valley, CA. This is one of my “regular” workshops in Grass Valley, and the workshop fee is $35.00. I will be posting some photos here in about a week so you can see these beauties! We’ll be using some amazing pine cone and fir dies to make gorgeous layered winter cards, which could be used for Christmas, but also as just seasonal cards, or thank you’s for holiday gifts. Stay tuned!
Dec. 1, 2, & 3 – Vintage Marketplace at Prospector’s. This month will be holidays, holidays, and MORE holidays! You won’t want to miss all the “holly jolly cheer”, so stop by and visit! I’ll be doing a “Christmas Tag Buffet” from 10:00 – 3:00. I’ll have several really cute sample tags for you to choose from, and LOTS of papers, trims, and embellishments to make your own from these samples. Pricing will vary depending on which tags you make and how many you make.
Well! . . . I got tired just telling you about all this fun stuff! Hope you’re still with me as I want to introduce what will be a regular and ongoing feature on the blog. I am going to start selling KITS here! I’ve been trying to figure out how to create sales pages on my site, and I don’t have it mastered yet. However, I’m going to just list some kits right here on the blog, for now, because I know many of you are more than ready to start your Christmas cards. When I figure out the sales pages, I’ll start posting the kits there.
KITS . . . KITS . . . and MORE KITS!!
I have a couple of different types of kits for sale. 1) I have extra kits from workshops I have held; 2) I have special kits I’ve created just for you here online. Kits are all first come, first served. I am not setting up “shopping cart” software/app at this time . . . .doing this the old fashioned way! If you see something you want, comment here on the site. I will check comments daily. Give me your PayPal email, and your mailing address. I will send you a PayPal invoice, with kit cost and shipping. You can then PayPal me your payment. Or, if you want to mail me a check, I will send an invoice from Bella Cosa (not thru PayPal) and will send your kit when I get your payment.
Kits Just for You!
These kits are set up like this: In your kit, you receive a card I already made. Then you receive all the precut pieces, papers, and embellishments to create 3 more of this particular card. Some kits are A2 sized cards (4.25″ X 5.5″), some are A6 sized cards (6″ X 4.25″) and some are A7 sized cards (5″ X 7″). All cards come with appropriate envelopes. Your kit will include any special instructions needed. Kit prices are listed below each card photo.
CARD #2 A7 sized card. Graphic 45 papers. $27.95 plus shipping. SOLD!!
WHEW!! Are you still with me? Thank you for taking the time to read and shop. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions. You can comment here on the blog. If it’s urgent, you can email. I’d love to hear from you!
Again – I’m SO happy you’re here! I look forward to sharing lots more of our craftiness with you here in “internet land”!! Big hugs! Janice
