You are friendly, outgoing, and well liked by many people.

You are popular, but there's nothing you ordinary or average about you.

You a very interesting person, and you have many facets to your personality.

Sometimes you feel very conflicted. Your different sides of your personality pull at you.

You are a very sensual and passionate person. You are fiery... you can't help it.

In general, you keep your passionate side under wraps. You are only wild in private.

Wow.....what in the world happens to the hours in a day...the days in a week???They all pass by so quickly now with me working at Lowes...I have very little time to be creative in my BEE HIVE, ANYTIME I can spend is PRECIOUS! is a hint of a project that has been on my list of to-do's since last FALL!....inspired by the news related in this post about my UBER SWEET Grandguy Sammy.
I wanted to wait to reveal the idea for my project until dd Joy posted their family's story here.
I am so very proud of her....and all she has accomplished with the boys. Their sweet little family has a long road ahead of them...but, I truly believe that their FAITH will see them through all this....and they will find the STRENGTH to PRESS ON.....
"If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed.......nothing shall be impossible unto you"
Matthew 17:20

Soooooooo...all that being said....I have wanted to do something to help them across the miles....since it is a SEVEN HOUR car ride from my door to their door ( this does include a couple of pit stops along the way!)....and as much as I would LOVE to be able to be there IN PERSON for physical and emotional support, that is just not in the cards right now.......But, I have this project on my table...all ready to launch, beeeeeeeeee sure to check back and see what my idea is!..I will post & make an announcement when it's in StudioBeeCreations Etsy Shop..In the meantime...I know that Joy would appreciate any uplifting comments and prayers from those of you who have similar life experiences.....and check out her etsy shop too....where she sells her yummy creations.

Thanks for stopping by.....the studio is a BUZZIN'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Goooooooooood Day!! is dark-thirty...I am UPUPUP spending a little time in The Bee Hive Studio before my work day begins at LOWES.....
I cannot believe where the week goes...I know I am in the studio at least a couple of hours every day.....working on orders and playing CLEAN UP /Catch Up with all my STUFF......I know I keep on saying NEW THINGS will be in my ETSY shop, but, orders come FIRST!......sooooooooo...for todays post ( just to AT LEAST get some light reading material up)...I have attached this fun quip from my friend Joane...(Sorry....I do not know the origin of this funny to give just acknowledgments)......however, enjoy the read:

Through the eyes of a child:
The Children's Bible in a Nutshell

In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was
nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says,
'The Lord thy God is one, but I think He must be a lot older than that.
Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did.
Then God made the world.
He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked,
but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been
invented yet.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad
apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden.
Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn't have cars.
Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long
as he was Abel.
Pretty soon all of the early people died
off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.
One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy,
but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a
large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked
some other people to join him, but they said they would
have to take a rain check.
After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more
famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his
birthmark in exchange for some pot roast. Jacob had a son
named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.
Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was
Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of
and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on
Pharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice,
bowels, and no cable.
God fed the Israel Lights every day
with mannicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments.
These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your
neighbor's stuff.
Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more:
Humor thy father and thy mother.
One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first
Bible guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and
the fence fell over on the town.
After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a
giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had
about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise,
but that doesn't sound very wise to me.
After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets.
One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then
barfed up on the shore. There were also some minor league
prophets, but I guess we don't have to worry about them.
After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the
star of The New. He was born in
Bethlehem in a barn.
(I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying
to me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It would
be nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was.')
During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like
the Pharisees and the Republicans.
Jesus also had twelve opossums.
The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they
named a terrible vegetable after him.
Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even
preached to some Germans on the Mount.
But the Republicans and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.
Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again.
He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the
Aluminum. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.

On my day off from my job at LOWES...this is what I was doing!!!...A special order request from my church, to make thank you notes for all the Sunday School worker-bees and teachers. Yowza! I ever feel accomplished!.....Same layout/sketch for each...but using my bits & pieces and hoarded stash....I was able to create 48 of these....and honestly not make a dent in my creative mess ( see this post).....what in the world???
Anyhoo....the inside sentiment/verse was printed on my computer....all other supplies are from SU.....and I was going to use my SU watermark...but, have not yet figured out how to CHANGE the 2007 to a 2008 to make it current( can anyone help me with this???)....maybe its time for a change....
I also had another card, sticking with the concept of not just making ONE (after all....everything is already OUT on the table, right?)...I made one to keep & one to share.
I LOVE creating this next big project will be to get all the Cards for Heroes cards completed, and sent off to Sandy for distribution....I am so psyched about creating & crafting on my days off now.......MOJO heaven!
BTW.....Special Order requests are always welcome!....Check out my ETSY shop.....and my previous blog posts to see some of my work.
Thanks for stopping by!!
