Hi friends,
Are you enjoying these quiet days of January? The cold isn't much fun, but that makes me all the more grateful for the coziness of home. If you are experiencing the winter blues, how about doing something creative here at Bella? Make a date with yourself or gather friends to take a class.  
Below is a list of upcoming workshops. If these dates and times don't work for your busy schedule, remember that we offer private plant parties for atleast four people. You can bring your own sips and snacks to add to the fun. 
Another way to focus on your well-being is practicing yoga. I'd like to invite you to our weekly yoga sessions on Thursdays at 9 am. It's a small, intimate group of women led by Jessica McLaughlin (Yoga with Josette). It's good for the body, the mind, and as I recently experienced, really good for the soul. You can register below or just show up. $15 for an hour session. 
Hope to see you soon!

Our popular pressed flower bookmark class was snowed out, so we have rescheduled it for the end of January. Make three resin bookmarks using pressed flowers and leaves provided or bring your own pressed flowers. Bookmarks need to be left at the shoppe overnight to set, and picked up within a week or two if possible. 

Make a lovely decorative heart hanging for yourself….or for your special valentine.  Plenty of vintage textiles including lace, handkerchiefs, and doilies will be available for your project!  All supplies are included but if you have some textiles you wish to use you are welcome to bring them along.
Instructor: Tiffany Knopow 

Get away for some botanical therapy during Lake Geneva's Winterfest. Come to one of our plant parties on Sunday, February 4 held here in our peaceful shoppe located in a historic church. Make a mini succulent terrarium for your home or office. Our terrarium bar will be set up with a variety of succulents, decorative stone and moss - everything you need!  Care instructions will be shared.  Available times are 10 am, 12 pm, or 2 pm. 

This project is for beginners or for those with some needle-felting experience. Artist Ginny DaValle will teach you how to create a pretty landscape using wool. The project is unframed, however, there will be frames to choose from for an additional charge.
