Time for a new challenge theme! This time let's do BEES. Honeybees and bumblebees are popular motifs in vintage ephemera, especially French ephemera, labels, linens, and advertising. They often show up in the "shabby elegant" and cottage chic style. And they are so sweet for cards and tags.
Why am I doing a "Bee" theme in the winter? Maybe it's because I'm already dreaming of spring, and I know when the honeybees show up warm weather can't be far behind.
You probably know bees are our friends, and we would be hard-pressed to survive without them. They busily pollinate not only our flowers, but all flowering plants which includes most of the fruits and vegetables we eat! Bee trivia: Did you know honey was once considered a gift of the gods (goddess, actually) and was also used as an offering TO the gods in ancient times? Did you know Deborah means honeybee, and Melissa means honey?
Anyway... enough of my nerdy trivia... let's have some fun with a Honeybee theme (bumblebees welcome too!) Don't miss the samples by the Lunagirl Moonbeams Design Team to inspire you, and to get you started I have two new digital collage sheets featuring bees

I love it when you use Lunagirl images, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collections... but that's not a requirement! But do remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I welcome everyone and every style but also want to give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage.
