We’d be so pleased if you’d come say hello, join our facebook page, and check out our wedding planning site!

Three very lucky Darling Belle readers will receive one of the following prizes this week:


|| 'The Future Mrs' bride tanktop by Rachel Walter Online Wedding Boutique||

A little about Rachel: I married the love of my life two years ago. Shortly before we married, I lost my job and searched for a replacement. However, with the economy, there wasn't much to work with. So, my husband suggested doing what I love most, Crafts! From there, I found etsy and have been blessed with a successful business and amazing customers! My boutique will celebrate it's second birthday in April!

|| Hand Painted Boxes by Tiffany on etsy ||

What Tiffany says about her etsy business: Love Boxes meld my interest in visual art and my love of literature. Finding the perfect quote, or writing the perfect quote to go inside is part of the charm of creating Love Boxes. I also love to create peg doll portraits from the photographs of yourself and/or someone you love to mark a wedding, birthday or anniversary or just for fun. When finished, I feel they make a token of lasting sentiment. No matter how much or how little someone has, we all welcome an expression of the love around us.

What Crista has to say about her business: A few papers. A few envelopes. A little bling. A ton of passion. The key ingredients to the birth of Dazzling Expressions! I believe it really began as a small child wandering through the aisles of a local stationery store with my Grandma Jane…I was always mesmerized and wanted to take home everything in the store. As a teenager my love for design grew as I took on small jobs designing and creating posters for small local businesses. As a young adult, in addition to my love for art and design I fell in love with weddings as I saw my friends getting married. I knew that my career should somehow involve weddings. After all, I had been creating invitations and wedding decor for family and friends for years…was it possible that someone else would like my work? They did!! So there it is in a nutshell…my passion for design…my love for weddings…my entrenpreneul spirit in full swing…Dazzling Expressions was born!
