Cards for Sale @ Bella Nani Salon and Spa, Ballston Spa NY

Hi there Stamping Friends!!

Happy February! How are you doing? I’ve missed blogging this past week, but I was down for the count with a nasty flu bug. I’m all better now, thanks for your well wishes, I really appreciate your kind words!

Well today was a big day for me…. last month a friend from high school (Kimberly Krizan) offered me to have a spot in her business, Bella Nani Salon and Spa, to sell my handmade cards. I was so excited to have this opportunity and with all the snow had many snowy nights to make new cards, and sorted through all my completed cards from swaps, clubs, classes and events. I had an extra card rack and made some labels for each slot. This card rack is different from two others that I take to craft fairs and events, it is bigger and has 24 slots. So this morning I loaded up the car and went to set it up:


Here’s the outside of Bella Nani Salon and Spa, it is elegant inside and very warm and welcoming! Here’s a link to their website, if you want to check out their hours, or other services:  http://bellanani.com/  While I was there I ran into two other friends from high school and a fellow crafty friend, it was so nice to visit with them!  Bella Nani offers full salon services including hair care, nail services, waxing, makeup application and massage. It is so serene and elegant, you will LOVE it there! Hope you’ll consider stopping by either for their wonderful services or purchasing my handmade cards!


There they are, right by the cash register, what do you think??  Do you know how many cards are in this card rack?? Have a guess…. well there’s 24 slots- and I filled it with 70 cards. They are for sale for $3.00 each. No two cards are alike, and most are in protective clear sleeves. Envelopes are available in three colors: Whisper White, Very Vanilla (ivory) and Crumb Cake (light brown).

Most of you know that I am trying to earn the Stampin’ Up! incentive cruise to France, Italy, Spain and Greece, just five months to go and my nieces and nephew are all vying to be the one who goes with me (it is an all expense paid trip for 2)… I told them I don’t know who I’ll pick, but it will probably be the one who helps me the most… so we’ll see how things work out. It would help me out to increase my sales, and we need a few more people to sign up on the Lynnzcrafters team (I need two more recruits, and two of my downline need 1 each). I’ve been working very hard with lots of events and classes. All I can do is spread the word, encourage and pray. It’s in God’s hands if I earn this trip, I have a full time job and part time adjunct at a local community college. Stampin’ Up! isn’t my full time focus, maybe someday, right?

So if you’re reading this blog, and you’d like to help me out- think about this: do you need anything from one of our current catalogs or clearance rack? (even my non-crafty friends and family might need scissors, all-purpose double sided tape is great for wrapping presents, some note cards, or custom stamps that have your return address, or business name/address? Or, want to try to earn free products? Consider having a home party (I will work with you to customize the cards/projects). Or give Project Life a try- our new quick and simple memory keeping system- just slide photos in pocket pages, simple as that. We have oodles of kits- a perpetual calendar, spring bouquet of paper flowers, mini photo album, and many card kits. We also have a monthly craft kit in the mail program (called Paper Pumpkin). I can tell you more about any of these, just contact me at LStreifert@nycap.rr.com or give me a call. I’m happy to help you!
