Who loves Eyeko?

I'm clearing out most to all of the inventory for Sassafrass Creations. I'm going to be converting this website back to my original dream - a site to sell items I make and maybe a few manufactured goods that I love & want to share with ya'll.

And I'm selling the last of my Eyeko Fat Balm fruity flavors. These have been hugely popular and have become rare.. so I'm dishing them out on Ebay. It is an auction for the trio: raspberry, strawberry, and the refreshing minty! Get your bid in now.. after this we will only have 2 minty balms to sell..

The Belle Baby Bundler

I've been so eager to open up my Etsy store. My first items up for sale are the Belle Baby Bundler! They are SO cute! Perfect for new moms like myself and for newborn photographers - the photograph wonderfully!

And that has been my hold on.. I needed pictures, I needed Isabelle to model.. Isabelle was not wanting to model. I think she sees my camera lens more than my face, and she had enough! Finally today after a cozy nap and warm glass of momma's milk, I coaxed her into modeling..

Here are the results:

Swap With Me!

I have discovered Flickr groups this past week, and have become quite addicted! I've joined groups from craftiness to SLC residents to photo challenges. If you have a Flickr account (if you don't - why the heck not?) you must check this out!

While signing up for these groups, I discovered swap bot! What an amazing site! They have all kinds of swaps - ATC, fabric, and more!! So of course I'm joining those at a rapid pace too. So far I'll be doing an ATC and fat quarter swap. What fun - so exciting to receive something other than bills in the mail!!

I'm currently working on knitted baby sacks/swaddlers/papooses.. whatever you want to call them :o) I will be listing these on Etsy in the next few weeks. They are fantastic for photographers that specialize in newborn shoots and they're great of course for your favorite ankle biter!

And to top this week off, I will be designing SLC Junior League's Black & White Gala invitations and save-the-dates. We're thinking of going with a old Hollywood glam theme.. pics will be revealed soon...

Absent at the AZ Expo

For the first time, Belle Paperie did not have a booth
at the Arizona Bridal Fashion Debut.
It was a hard decision, but one that I think was for the best.
Belle Paperie is alive and strong,
so much so that a majority of the work coming in is from referrals.

When we were based in Arizona, it made more sense to present
at the expos. Many of the brides there feel a need to work someone close.
Now that we are in Utah, the clients we work with are ones
that are very comfortable working on the Internet.
We have clients from Washington state to Washington, D.C.

While I missed the excitement of the expo this past week,
I'm excited to jump ahead into this new chapter of the business.
We will be putting more money and effort into the online aspect,
and looking at additional ways to reach the local market.
At this time, we are considering doing
more custom birthday invites - a huge market in UT.
We thank you for your continued support
and hope that our absence was missed, but understood.

What's a MWAC?

What is a MWAC you ask.. It is a "mother with a camera" :-)

Before Isabelle was born, I splurged on a Nikon D80 and a few lenses.

Ironically, once she was born I found myself taking not the best pictures in the world.

I think they call it "mommy goggles".

I'm now aiming for 1 hour a week of dedicated photography.

Isabelle is usually the subject, but I will branching out soon.

While I know for now I'm truly a MWAC,

I hope that in time my skills will grow.

So I've created my own copyright logo.

Whatcha think?

Will & Tera

I have been asked by Thomas' best friend and fiance to create their wedding invitations and announcements! I'm so excited. I love doing custom stationery in general, but it is just that much more meaningful when I know the couple.

We will be doing an elegant Envelopment in lilac and cream. They are wanting to incorporate a few lovey dovey pictures of themselves as well.
Also, we are contemplating using a wax seal to add a final romantic touch.

Shades of purple are very popular this season!
Last spring we did a spectacular vineyard wedding invitation in shades
of purple and gold - too enchanting!!

I have also been asked to be a bridesmaid :-)
Even more reason for me to work on losing that baby weight.


Welcome to All Things Belle!
I will be blogging about my various craft businesses:
.. and soon an Etsy Store!
I will post tutorials, coupons to my various sites,
photos, and whatever craft I fancy at that moment.
Welcome.. and enjoy!
