Project 1: Stinkin' Cute

Well, the week got away from me, as it usually does. But, finally, my first project! My inspiration for these napkins came from something I saw at a local bookstore. Only, they were super expensive and kind of blah.

So I thought I could do a little better. A few paper cocktail napkins, some colorful paper flowers, and a dash of smooth pearl beads and sparkling rhinestones, and viola. Stinkin' cute!

I just love the soft aquas and yellows.

I ended up making a set of 10. How perfect would they be for a baby shower, bridal shower, brunch or anniversary party? The possibilities are endless!

Sure, they're disposable. But who wouldn't want to enjoy a scrumptious cupcake or a glass of wine off one?

First Project Sneak Peek

When I decided to start this blog and dapple in something creative, I wasn't really sure where to go with it. I just knew that -- after hours of working on the computer each day -- I needed something to distract my mind at night. Something to do besides just PowerPoints.

Thus, the birth of this blog -- bella creative. Not sure what all you'll find here: crafty ramblings, current projects, fashion wishlists ... I'm sure that will all sort itself out with time. As for my personal projects, I'm sure they'll range allll over the board as I figure out what I'm good at, what I suck at, and what actually brings me peace instead of adding stress.

And after countless hours dreaming, two trips to Hobby Lobby and several cupcakes later, I've started my first project. It has something to do with paper napkins and colorful flowers ...

... and perhaps a few rhinestones. As you'll see, I'm not the best photographer in the world. But, this project is already turning out pretty darn cute -- can't wait to show you the finished product! :)
