Making Tiny Bees

I make these bees a lot. Mostly for a lovely man from Alabama who first requested them about a year ago. He kept ordering them and ordering them and eventually shared with me that he included one  bee with every gift he gave as a reminder of his daughter who passed away. She loved bees.

Every time  I make this little fellow it reminds me how lucky I am to have my boys, to hold them and hug them and cherish them a little more.

  1. The father’s gesture is so, so lovely. His daughter was surely loved…& her memory continues to live on through your little bees. I’m glad he found you, Vicky!
