August Newsletter

B.B. Bellezza
August Newsletter


I am officially going to primarily focus on recycling and reusing a vast majority of the materials used in my arts and crafts. I have been expanding my line to include items other than just jewelry, and this will continue to expand. My artist statement is on my website: www.BBBellezza.com

Look for more dolls, more coasters and (you are the FIRST to hear this) clothes!! I have so many more ideas than I do time, so please be patient, but you will be seeing new items soon!

In other news, I have been featured on the front page of Etsy.com and on a couple of blogs. If you want to learn about my daily routine, you can check out this feature on handmade in pa.

New features on my blog:

Boy, time is quickly slipping by (my mom always said it went faster the older you got!) I have added a couple new features (and revived older ones!) to the blog. I have been swamped lately so I have already missed a couple of these features, but rest assured, I intend to have them regularly soon!

Mondays: I hate Mondays, and I need something to look forward to on Monday. Each Monday I will have some fun “interactiveness” for everyone to participate in. Each week will be different (or sometimes it may be the same!), but look for this to begin next Monday! Small prizes will be involved most weeks!

Tuesdays: I will be featuring simple, quick and easy tips to live a greener lifestyle. Some of the tips may be things that you already do and seem so simple, but they may not be for others. I hope you enjoy these tips and feel free to contact me and/or comment with your tips.

Wednesday: What I am working on.

Thursday: Green artist of the week! Please let me know if you have suggestions or are a green artist yourself and wish to be featured.

Friday: I will let you know about what events I plan to do over the weekend.

There may or may not be posts on weekends, and I have no structure for the weekends!

This, of course, is subject to change based upon how crazy my schedule is, but I plan to try my hardest to follow this schedule. I will also have other posts of things that interest me and tutorials here and there as well!
