best week ever!

I have had the best {crafty} week ever! Not only did I get the news that Creating Keepsakes is publishing 2 of my layouts in an upcoming publication (...YAY!!!), but I also had a great meeting today with Robin from La Bella Mela.


Robin is the owner/founder of the cutest little boutique located about a mile from my house behind a well-known, quaint little restaurant. Adorable, right?! Here are some pictures from the inside of La Bella Mela. So cute!



I am happy to say that cards, flowers and other items (such as the frames below) made by me can now be found at La Bella Mela! I'm so happy to be included with so many other amazing local artists in this shop.

Fabric and fill memory board.


Love how the Dear Lizzy ribbon looks here around the button. (And I love my new tags!)


Cork memory board.


If you are traveling in the Rochester area, or live here, you have to swing on by. This place is eye candy for sure!!

The best part is that I have lots of ideas from my meeting with Robin, so I have a list of cards and product that need creating. Better go get busy! :)

Thanks for stopping in today! And if you stop in to La Bella Mela, tell Robin I sent you!!

Wow so exciting for you. You'r in a magazine and have your beautiful crafts in a beautiful shop.
We had a couple of shops like this here, but they all went out of business. I could spend hours in there.
