Down to businessI have owned Bonne'Bella Boutique since 2013 as a store. Before that, I rented space at the Emporium in Castle Rock and American Classics Marketplace in Colorado Springs. My husband Floyd pushed me to open my own boutique, and I named it after my Pug, Isabella.What makes it different from other boutiques are displays and fixtures that were made from found objects: pieces of chippy ceiling tiles, old doors, and fixtures.My job is fun because I have several friends that are into pageantry. I love all things bling, so I incorporated crowns and tiaras and rhinestones into the displays and décor. I would say the challenging part is the location. We are definitely a "hidden gem.”Crafting creationsI enjoy many different hobbies. I love to sew and make unique “shabby chic” vintage handmade flowers, which can be used to decorate lampshades, jewelry, hangars, purses, bouquets — or anything else you want to put them on. I have taught about 10 crafting classes since I opened the boutique and enjoy teaching others my little tips and tricks. I also love to make jewelry, alter clothing and paint. I painted and constructed all of the displays in the boutiqueCheering for sports, the seasonMy favorite sport is basketball. I have been attending basketball games with my two boys, Tyler and Nicholas, who have played competitive club basketball since they were in second grade. I am super competitive and whistle super loud, so watch out if you sit next to me!I enjoy this time of year especially because I get to decorate for the holidays and create one-of-a-kind unique clothing and accessories for my customers. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
