Come and see the flowers in bloom, 
Heavenly scents to fill a room, 
Elaborate blossoms, in every hue, 
Looking up, the sun to view, 
Summer's here, and what a show, 
Endless varieties for you to grow....

Summer seems to just lift everyone’s spirit, it is the time for infinite fun and holidays to sunny destinations! Even better, if our current heatwave continues, we may not even have to travel very far! 
 
One of our favourite things here at BellaCrafts (aside from seeing you lovely lot in The Barn) is the number of events and festivals we are invited to attend over the summer months. We will certainly be clocking up the miles!! Here are just a few of the events we will be attending…..brace yourself:

Hermoine here, part time BellaCrafter, full time Mummy and seasonal gardener. So, I don’t want to put a hex on the season but I do believe summer is here!! (Please don’t email with complaints when it starts to rain, haha). There are so many things to enjoy at this time of year, the days are longer and feel like a warm hug and nature seems to just explode around us in beautiful blooms and luscious greens, it’s no wonder we all then turn our attention to the outside spaces and fulfil our title of being a nation of gardeners. 
 
 
Hi, I'm Hermoine from the BellaCrafts Team, and I'm so glad Spring is in our steps! Welcome back Spring, dear friend, how nice it is to see you again!! Taken from the beautiful poem ‘Spring’ by William Blake... 
‘Little boy, Full of joy; 
Little girl, Sweet and small; 
Cock does crow, So do you; 
Merry voice, Infant noise; 
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year' 
 
It’s March. Spring is on its way! Or at least we think it is? Okay it has been mostly snowing and FREEZING cold, but we can’t help but dream about Spring. Spring is a crafter’s heaven, the pastel colours, the Easter décor, the desire for fresh starts and new craft adventures! As a team we all have notebooks jam packed with workshop ideas and our own personal craft makes to do lists. The word Spring just makes so many delightful arts and crafts opportunities ‘spring’ to mind! 
 
Wow. What a weekend we just loved hosting our open bridal days. So much joy and excitement to be shared! We met some lovely brides and were inspired by their colour choices and themes! 
The whole team were in Friday, including our newest recruit Hermoine. We loved every second of setting up our displays and even got our noses into some bridal magazines, doing some very serious research..... not at all getting side tracked by dresses, photo shoots and venues!
