Have you taken part in rock painting? Many of my friends have been painting up rocks and hiding them all over the area. It's super fun when you stumble upon a beautiful rock during a walk...you can't help but smile! You can take the rocks and post them on social media or you can re-hide them...whatever floats your boat!!

A wonderful friend of mine created these lovely rocks that I hid outside my shop today

If you find any of these rocks...be sure to share them at https://www.facebook.com/groups/168119503685178/?fref=nf

Happy Rock Hunting!!!

I realize there is some debate out there whether bees need saving...however after doing a little research, it's a project I really wanted to take part in.

It all started when a wonderful customer offered to crochet a yarn bomb for outside the shop. She came up with the honeycomb idea and I just thought it was adorable!!!

It got me thinking....how can we tie the theme into a way for the shop to give back. That's when I started researching bees.

U.S. National Agricultural Statistics show a honey bee decline from about 6 million hives in 1947 to 2.4 million hives in 2008, a 60 percent reduction. ... In the U.S. — among crops that require bee pollination — the number of bee colonies per hectare has declined by 90 percent since 1962. - www.greenpeace.org

Honeybees are dying off at an incredibly disturbing rate. Colony collapse disorder (CCD), a condition where bees stray from the hive and never find their way back, is nixing millions of nature's pollinators every year. Not only do the bees abandon their hive, but the queen and the brood as well. Unnatural? Unheard of? Even the predators that usually raid the hive for honey stay far away. At first, this occurrence sounds like an urban legend or an exaggerated tale. Except it’s not. The situation is both dire and all too real. - http://www.foodmatters.com/article/10-surprising-statistics-about-honeybees

So, beginning June 1st, 2017 we will be selling these cute cards in the shop!

temp-post-image

100% of the proceeds from the card sales will be donated to North West Honey Bee Habitat Restoration http://www.nwhoneybee.org/

HABITAT RESTORATION: We focus primarily on the front unused grass strip in front of residential areas along the sidewalk and road and can transform the unproductive grass into pesticide free honeybee and pollinator-friendly habitat. We can plant a variety of different plants depending on what the resident prefers but primarily focus on lavender due to its hardiness, drought tolerance, pest resistance, it's easy to grow, it is beautiful planted in rows as pollinator pathways and ultimately it has a long bloom time which provides important pollinator forage. - http://www.nwhoneybee.org
