Bella Bling...

I'm so ready for Silver Bella to be here! It's such fun for me, and I return home with so much creative energy - it makes Steve nervous! Granted, I do have a few things still to do to get ready (packing, gathering supplies, and finishing up swaps mostly), but it's all in progress and close to being finished. My Twinchies are created, my charms are designed, the Junkin' Journal pages are ready to ship, and my vintage collection packets are awaiting labels. My wand is in progress, and is coming along quite nicely! My moo cards are on order, and should arrive sometime within the next week. The boxes I'll ship everything to myself in are ready and waiting to be filled and delivered to the courier for delivery to my hotel room (it's definitely cheaper than paying to check in luggage!).

With all the excitement, I thought it would be fun to have a Silver Bella Blog Swag Giveaway! I'm going to give a {who I think will be} lucky Bella one of my much complimented blingy crown soldered charms (now available in my etsy store - thanks for asking)! It's close to the same photo shared here, but has a little bit of a different crown.

To enter, simply leave a comment with what you're most looking forward to at Silver Bella! If you're a vendor, be sure to leave a link to your etsy or other site so we can all go check you out! 41 days and counting! The charm will be delivered to the winner at Silver Bella.
I will randomly select a winner on Sunday, October 12th around 6pm.

I can't wait for swaps, classes, vendor faire, but mostly I can't wait to see the friends I made last year in person.

Your charms are just gorgeous. This is my first year at SB and I am SO excited. I must say your post has gotten me motivated to get organized!! I have so much to do.

Julia said...

I'm a newcomer to Silver Bella....talked into going by my childhood friend, Stepanie, who I keep up with in Blogland. I am up to my eyebrows in glitter and glue getting my swaps ready. I am sooo excited about all of it! But, I will admit that being in the same room with Mary Engelbreit may just be what I'm looking forward to the most. I would love to have that charm twinkling around my neck...to catch Mary's eye! heehee. Julia

gina g said...

Thanks for posting the pic! You are going to have to list some of these in your etsy store too!!!

Oh my Heather, that is beautiful! I thought I was signing up for a charm like the one I bought, (which I love) but wow, this one is really something!!

Faith and Chocolate said...

WOW! Fabulous charm Heather!!! You HAVE been so busy! Are you starting the "nesting" phase?? LOL! I really love it- VERY nice job, indeed! Goodness, I need to really kick it in gear and finish these swaps...there's so much to do!
I cannot wait for all our Bella fun!!!
Hugs,
Shannon

Hey cute and very talented girl and Bean! I'm looking forward to being better focused on not being such a recluse and getting to know my Bella buddies better, and meeting some new Bellas! I think that little artpiece of bling will look fabulous around my neck! Thanks for your blog giveaway Miss Heather!

Joanna {sweet finds} said...

Girl, since me up! I'd love to sport that free floating crown to Bella this year! :) I'm hoping that my goodness has rubbed off on it & ya'll pick my name, considering that I've already held that lucky charm in the palm of my hands. LOL

I'm like Jana... I feel like I have so much to get ready before SB. I think I'm starting to freak out just a little. xoxo, Joanna

Stephanie/Doojies said...

Hey Heather, I already bought the "official" charm from you minutes ago as soon as I saw it on the SB website! I'm most looking forward to everything! If you check out my blog at www.doojies.blogspot.com you'll see the "Warning to Bellas" post where I explain how I didn't get to absorb all the goodness last year even though I enjoyed every minute I was distracted with my mom and new meds. Anyway, this year I'm all me and will be able to enjoy it all so much more and be able to especially enjoy the other girls as they deserve. Thanks for doing all this...can't wait but need the time to finish swaps and things to sell! Back at it...

Debe said...

Oh my...I am such a newbie and so excited that I am scared. The talent is just over the top including this regal charm. I just hope I am deserving!!

one and one + two said...

I am excited about everything Bella - this is my first time going! Most excited to take the classes from such talented women, and that Mary E will be there...
