Someone asked me if I had a bee stamp the other day...I don't...but I loved the idea of a little honey bee so after a little inspiration there were soon a couple bees buzzing about the studio
And here is the final order, I hope they are liked!
Congratulations Bronz and I hope your son enjoys the set!
Recently Jana contacted me again with regards to doing an article on lil' ol' me, I was so flattered I had to say yes!
You can read the article here and check out the rest of the forum and site, it seems like a great place!

Of course having 2 small children and Christmas coming up I just HAD to go in.
I'd already decided my baby girl was going to get a doll for Christmas as she doesn't have one, and when I saw their Kathe Kruse dolls I knew I'd found the right ones. I spent an age going through all the different ones before settling on one and now have it safely tucked away for a few months time :)
However, in the process I fell in love with one myself, but a grown women buying an overpriced rag doll for herself just seemed a bit overboard, so I hightailed it out of there and spent several hours stuck in traffic instead.
After listening to me talk about the doll all weekend my husband finally convinced me that I did in fact need her and it wasn't that silly a grown woman wanting a doll (said with slightly rolly eyes), and today she arrived. So now I have a little company in the studio/office while I'm busy!
The little note that came with her says:
Our "water doll" with her light blue dress & dolphin pendant covers the area of life regarding "career". This refers not only to the business career but also to the setting of life's goals and maintaining of life's tasks."
So pretty appropriate I think :)
And here she is
With some special words or names & some beautiful beads it will make a lovely pendant.

Anyway, I'm waiting for them to get back to me otherwise I'm going to have to start from scratch and source another supplier.
In the meantime I thought I'd show you examples of the pendants I do have!

Ann Fletcher returns to her childhood home to celebrate her sister’s achievements only to be left utterly alone in this world. Or is she alone? As the story unfolds you discover Ann is surrounded by beings that care for, and love her. Some are undoubtedly human while others are more angelic in nature.
While Ann thinks herself a modern and career driven woman, she keeps finding herself drawn back to her childhood roots. Could it be divine intervention of an angelic nature protecting her, or is she suffering from a delusion? I found Ann’s journey of discovery uplifting and comforting. While the idea of angels is one people often acknowledge it is something not often discussed in terms of how it relates to our physical world. The one thing I felt lacking in the novel was God’s presence, after all at the end of the day the angels obey His command.
I’d recommend this book to anyone looking for an enjoyable and easy read.

We're big fans of the amber necklaces ourselves, here's some photos of my 2 pumpkins wearing theirs
