Cute as can BEE

My  friend, Linda, has talked me into taking a clay class with her at the Oklahoma Museum of Art.  We are going to create our own teapot!  Doesn't that sound cool?  The only problem is that I am just not that great with clay.  My mother can attest to that - for decades she used one of my elementary clay "bowl" creations as a paperclip holder.  It's still just a wee bit embarrassing!   It seems that my clay ability may have been handed down to my daughter, Lauren.  When she was little she brought home her clay creation and I said, "Oh, how cute - you made a weeble in a boat!"  She said, "Mom, it's a Viking on a horse!"  Gotta love it!

Have you made anything with clay?  I would love to hear about it.  It takes three Sundays in April to create a teapot.  I can't wait and I'll keep you posted! 

Anyway, Linda is as sweet as can BEE to invite me to join her and we're going to have a blast even if I come back with a weeble in a boat!

I love this vintage bee!  I didn't have a stamp that actually said BEE so I just stamped another E using a stamp from MFT Stamps.  I think this one may have been retired.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. I love your adorable card! The bee is precious! I love the button and the perfect sentiment! Thank you for the sweet bee - I really enjoy retro/vintage Valentines. It reminds me of my childhood.

  2. your pretty card! Vintage images are my favorite for Valentines. Enjoy your clay class, sounds like fun. Me..well I attempted a bowl, kinda wonky looking :) Have a great day!

  3. What a cute little bee...such a sweet make Lori.
    I did ceramic art for a while which was fine because we used moulds & slip. The one occasion that we had a go at making something from scratch was when we had a go at slab pots (rolling the clay out with rolling pins and cutting bits to make box shaped containers) - not a great result but it is amazing how a good coat of glaze can hide many imperfections LOL. Have loads of fun make your teapot.

  4. What a darling bee card! The vintage bee is CUTE as can "bee"!:-) I've never done any clay projects, but a friend of mine has. It does sound like fun! Maybe that's a fun new thing that I'll try this year! Anyways, I'm hoping you have lots of fun with it and I can't wait to see photos of your teapot! Have a great day!:-)

  5. LOL - weeble in a boat! Love this card, and genius idea to add another 'e' :-) Have a great week.
