Where Are They Now? Bee Burg!

Bee Burg, my readers' "favorite pick" the month of my "What's in your Tin?" contest, has been busy making..a BABY this year LOL! (and he is coming SOON, maybe today, so I thought I'd better hurry up and share LOL!!!! I have her addy if you want to send her a card!) ;) You can tell from today's project she's in "full nesting mode" and used images from my first THREE animals sets "Just So Hippy!", "Just So Hoppy", and "Hip Hop Accessories" to make these inspired closet dividers!!

Accck, it's so cute, I could eat em up!! (num num num) As you can see, this fabulous idea and design would be very easy to recreate with Classic and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities and a notch for the closet rod. You could change the colors and animals out to work for any nursery theme, I just love this! What a great project to gift a mom to be or her to make herself while she's "waiting", as a mom I know there's nothing like creating some special touches for your baby and his or her room to prepare for that most special of arrivals!!
Here's a little more about Bee:


Favorite technique: Paper dry embossing (I'm in love with my Cuttlebug folders ;-)) and I also love embossing with powder and my heatgun.
Favorite colors/color combo: I'm a rainbow kind of girl! The only color I don't like and use very rarely or in small touches is yellow. My favorite color is blue and I love pairing it with all kind of colors. Most of the time when I make a card or project it is with someone in mind so I get my color inspiration from the person or from the paper I feel like using that day, or the ribbon...
Favorite type of project to make that's not a card: Anything with my kids in mind, and maybe giftcards holders. Oh and those mini albums I have been making lately...:-)

Favorite Gina K set by Melanie: It's hard to say, but I would go with "Have a cookie" and "Hand-in-hand" even though I have neither of them (yet! ;-))...
Favorite Gina K sets (from any illustrator): Same as above! :-)
Craft supplies I can't live without: Well the basics: paper & cardstock, ribbons, stamps, coloring pencils and markers... for the "extras" I would say my Cuttlebug and the embossing folders and my Nestabilities... Of course Prima flowers and brads and...
I've been stamping for a little less than 1 1/2 year.
I get my inspiration from anything! But I am certainly influenced by all the crafty blogs I visit!.. ;-)
The most important things I've learned about stamping / cardmaking / scrapbooking are that's it's all about you! LOL! It's not about following rules or doing a perfect job or something that everyone will rave about, it's about having fun and expressing yourself! If in the process it makes someone else feel loved or appreciated then it's even better! :-D
I started papercrafting to have something just for me that I enjoy and that relaxes me. It is definitely liberating and rewarding. I had no clue I would "meet" (over the net ;-)) so many wonderful people in the process! ♥...
Some of my stamping/crafting goals are: Make my kids' photo albums (much catching up to do in that area, years!!!..). Scrapbook more. Make a recipe book for my daughter with traditional french recipes from my grandmother. Maybe one day (years from now!) design my own stamps? Who knows?...
Some of my stamping/crafting accomplishments are: I still see myself as kind of a newbie in that field so my accomplishments are still ahead of me!... ;-)


Thank you Bee for blessing us with your project today, I am just so touched my stamps are a part of that little boy's room! And I know we all wish you the VERY , VERY best for yor delivery, praying that it's safe and speedy, and a healthy mom and baby! :) Keep us updated!

These dividers are the best! Way too cute! I need to find a way to make these! My sister is pregnant with twins. How great a gift this would be for her. You are truly an inspiration, Bee. Are you sure you've only been stamping for 1 1/2years??? Good luck!

These are just adorable. My dd just had a baby boy and how cute they would look in his closet? Do you know if she used chipboard to make them stiff and stable. I just love the creativity of this project.

Cathy said...

I love the zoo animals, they are so cute and what a cute idea Bee did on it. And the closet looked so special with the dividers. Nice project. I would love to have that set of stamps.

mitch1066 said...

WHAT AN ORIGINAL IDEA!
IF YOU SCORE JUST UNDER THE HOLE YOU COULD HANG THEM ON THE HANGERS FOR SIZES AND PRICES IF YOU SELLING KIDS CLOTHING TOO.

Julie Brown said...

The closet dividers are adorable and.. how organized can you be?? It's a great idea. I never had babies so I don't know if I'd have thought to organize them by size, so I think it's very novel and innovative!

Stampmouse said...

what a totally clever idea. LOVE IT

Stephanie Niavez said...

Wow, what a great idea.

Ravengirl said...

Those are sooo cute! Very clever and functional! Two of my hubby's friends are about to be come first time parents! I know what I will be making!

Adeline E. Brill said...

Perfect for my friend who just had her first baby! What a terrific idea!

Casmiles said...

I love this idea - and I am going to use it for my neighbor with the most precious little guy. They have just bought their first house and will be moving (I'm sad), but they'll be close enough to visit so that's a good thing. This will be a perfect addition to the goodies I'm making for the babies room...

scrappintlc said...

Oh how darling are these!!!! A happy, safe and healthy delivery for Bee. Let us know babys name. :)

SparkofWhimsy said...

I have no children, but what an adorable idea! I know a few ladies who are going to just love this! They're very cute!
