The family who goes green together…

Every year, more than 30 million trees are cut down to produce books in the US.  So, at Bella Flowers Books, we feel an ethical responsibility to balance out what we are taking from our planet.  This is why we’ve chosen to print our books using vegetable-based ink on 30% recycled paper, as well as plant a tree for every copy printed of Nice to be Nice.  We are in business to leave the world a little better than we found it. If we remain true to that, profits are …

Luck of the Greenish

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, so green is everywhere you turn… or is it?  You may be sporting a green ensemble trying to avoid the pain and possible conflict brought on by a barrage of pinching strangers.  You may have even snagged a sitter and are planning a mid-week celebration at a neighborhood pub with a name that starts with “Mc” or an “O”.  However, are you being or seeing green in a way that will last?  Today, while you’re in the moment and indulging in all things Irish, enjoy …

Ready to Rumble

When I first developed Nice to be Nice© and the Bella Flowers Books brand, it was hard to pinpoint my emotions on any given day.  I mostly vacillated between excitement and sheer terror.  Today… not much has changed.  When we sold 3 books in one day, I was excited and proud!  Sure, 3 sales may seem like nothing to you, but to me… every sale feels like appreciation for our work, our vision, and our sacrifices.  Then, there are the days that we sell zero books, and terror comes creeping …
