The Nightmare Before Christmas

One of my favorite movies of all times by the magical & wonderful Tim Burton.

Remember as a kid when Halloween and Christmas were two distinct holidays and now....all the big box stores have the two side by side.  Candy corn and candy reindeer poop.  It used to kind of bug me I'm guilty of having both holidays coexist.

Surrounded by Halloween decorations and after a good pumpkin picking session I set down to sketch out a mini painting of where I'm super excited to be selling this December, the Chelsea Market as part of the wonderful Etsy NY Team.

I couldn't be more excited!  So while I'm planning outings to pumpkin patches and filling goody bags for Trick-or-Treaters I'm humming Christmas tunes as well.

What are you up to this time of year?

Cards for Danny

Sending some love.....and you can too!

Danny is a soon to be 6 year old boy in Massachusetts with an inoperable brain tumor.  His birthday wish is to receive a mailbox full of birthday cards.  This, my friends is a wish we can ALL make come true!

I hope you'll join me in sending Danny a birthday card, you can make your own, buy one, even just send a note with a birthday wish.   His birthday is right around the corner on July 25th,  but don't worry if it arrives after the date, we all love knowing that we're remembered and I think that's especially true in this case.

Learn more about Danny, his family and this very special Birthday project here:

Have a great day everyone!

Lobster love


Remember that line from the show "Friends"?  It's a classic.

This card was actually inspired by that line.  I have an awesome lobster stencil that I use to keep my dots in order and then I paint dots, dots and more dots.

If you haven't tried dot painting I highly recommend it.  It's so fun and relaxing.

I use a Martha Stewart brand stylus, but the end of a paint brush or toothpick will do.

I'd love to see your designs so please share.

See you soon,

Marcia  aka Be My Bee

Happy New Year 2014!

Hi Friends!

 I hope 2014 has been off to a good start for you.    So tell me, what exciting plans have you dreamed up for the coming year?

I have lots of things on my list, much of it business related but on a personal note I'd love to travel.  A family vacation to Hawaii would be amazing but I'd be happy staying local too.  And I'm obsessed with a kitchen I saw at IKEA, I NEED that kitchen and that house that goes with it.  :)

Now to figure out how to make it happen.  Wish me luck and here's wishing you a beautiful new year filled with great health lots of love and all the wonderful things your heart desires.
