The Best Gifts are Homemade!


Hello everyone!

My mom volun-told my sister and I for the spring sale, so we roped in Auntie Pam, and it’s a CHRISTMAS FAIR REUNION!!

Judy is selling “shelfies,” Kathleen has been working tirelessly on cards for all occasions, Pam has been stealing rocks from your garden and painting them. As for me? I am branching out from book characters, trying to appeal to a wider audience!

April was definitely a bust, so I’m hoping May 11th will see more people come out to look for unique gifts for the moms/ women in their lives.

Celebrate Spring… in theory.

Thanks so much for your support!

Another First! Spring Sale (March 30/19)


I’m so excited!! This is the first official Distracted Bee market!!

I have my very own table (I’ve set up using my mother’s coat tales twice before…) and some new designs I’ve been wrestling with.

Please drop by and say hi!! There’s tons of creative folk with tables, and perfect timing for Mother’s Day shopping!! Or bringing in some new pieces for your spring decorating.

As always, thanks so much for following me! It’s been quite a ride already, and I’ve only just begun!!

Until next time,

~ Jennifer/ The Distracted Bee


The First of Firsts

I’ve been waiting to hear whether I’ve made “the cut” to participate in a monthly craft sale. I’ll plug it here for free, hoping the good karma comes back to me!!

Local Treasures YYC

(It doesn’t come up easily on google, so please visit their Facebook page – with the link above – to encourage local crafters and artisans!)

Basically I’m biting the bone (is that the saying? Old people please comment…) and launching this website (which is WAY hard for 40 year-old dogs, you internet tricksters!!!).

I would love, love, LOVE if you liked and subscribed to all the social media links (on my Home Page) and even shared some stuff! I’ve hired a social media person, who doubles as my complaint department!!!

Stay tuned to see if I am selling in the March market!!

Thanks for reading, and following!
