Busy Bees for Deserving Teachers

Busy bees and busy hands are at work today for a Teacher Appreciation event coming up next week. I will be presenting the divisions of my business, Shanti Mom For One: Author, Artist, Educator.

Thank you to Keeping it Real and her Really Crafty Link Party for allowing me to share my progress. These will be clothes pin magnets for teachers to use in their classroom. The attached note will say:

“Thanks for bee-ing you!”

I went through a couple of failures before ending up with the right combination of pieces, colors, and materials. These are made with:

  • clothes pins
  • black paint
  • black pipe cleaners
  • yellow puff balls
  • yellow and glittered black felt
  • googly eyes
  • yellow and white striped straws

Still 6 bees to make and then they will all be attached to the clothes pins and magnets. Just a small token of appreciation and an example of my mixed media art work done through Oh BaBee! Originals.

Thank you to Keeping It Real for inviting me to the 43rd Real Crafty Link Party. I created these Christmas cards this week for anyone way ahead of the game, ready to buy unique cards to go with their gifts. They are made with card stock, up-cycled fabric, straws, ribbon, embellishments, and pom-poms. Each has its own whimsical theme. They come with a large envelope and a protective wrap. Sold through Oh BaBee! Originals on this website. $7 each. Joy to the world!
