Honey Bee Card Tutorial

For a Christmas gift we received a jar of homemade honey.  I wanted to ensure I shared our appreciation so I started searching for card inspiration on Pinterest.  I found this absolutely perfect card at Cindy Lee Bee Designs.  I had just recently downloaded a similar hexagon style design from the Silhouette Design store that would work perfect in the background.  I wanted to do a little something extra with it then just cut it out of paper.  I had recently started dabbling in trying to make my own embossing folders and thought this was a perfect candidate.

Nine-Patch Star Owl Quilt

If I were to pinpoint a moment when I first became I quilter I would have to say it was when I found out I was going to be an Aunt.  I knew I wanted to create something special and I had just caught the sewing bug so I figured quilting wouldn't be that hard.  After the first quilt was done I was hooked.  They became my go to present for family and close friends that were expecting.

Embroidered Iron Tote

After sewing for awhile I found that my projects were piling up.  This of course is because I always seem to put too many things on my to do list and don't have enough time to get them done.  So I found myself traveling a lot with my projects to try and get them done in time.  While I was able to make progress on things it was a little more difficult than working in my home space.  I didn't have all the tools and proper working spaces that I was used to.
