Bella Flair began quite innocently, as a desire to help at my daughter's school. I wanted to be involved in some creative way but wasn't sure how. I knew I enjoyed decorating but had no idea what I could do once I put my heart to it. Let this be a lesson to all of you out there who may feel that you lack ability in someway to accomplish a dream.
I began simply at first just working with balloons; first a string of pearls and then a column and before I knew it, I was able to create elaborate designs. I then moved onto flowers. I honestly had no idea there were so many different types of flowers! Instead of worrying about design concepts, I decided to trust the gifts God gave me and out it came without any formal training. The results surprised even me.
The rest is par for the course, arts & crafts rolled right into it (I now consider myself the Puerto Rican Martha Stewart), and being a professional actress, set design (on a smaller scale), was a natural fit.
Of course, none of this could have ever been done without the help and support of my husband, David.
To me, having a creative outlet is a must! If I am not creating, I don't feel complete. I am happiest when the creative juices are flowing.
