Honeybees 2016!

It's time to launch the 2016 Honey Bees!  If you were a Honey Bee this year or wish you were you know what this is all about and it's time to sign up for 2016.

If you are wondering who or what honey bees are, read on.....

We love our customers!

There, it's that simple.

You are our friends and family.  

We designed a rewards club that is all about you — 
Priority signups and discounts for you our loyal customers and friends.  

The Honey Bees!

Being a Honey Bee is all about rewards for you!  Sign up to be a Honey Bee and we will send you a wonderful gift box in December guaranteed to make you smile.  I have new surprises for this year's box!  Beyond the gifts and goodies in the box,  there are great opportunities for you, our loyal friends.

As a Honey Bee you will know the entire class schedule for B&B at the beginning of the year.  You can pick and choose your classes signing up for as many or as few as you like before they are announced to the entire community. You can always add more classes later but this allows you priority seating with your favorite teachers.  We often sell out.  Plan your year early!

We all love a discount and we love the newest and prettiest canvases, so why not combine the two. See a canvas you love but wish it were in a trunkshow so you could get it NOW and on sale?  No worries, as a Honey Bee twice a year you can say “I want my Honey Bee discount” and the canvas will be 20% OFF!*  It’s magic.

You will be the first to know about sales and special happenings at B&B.

The yearly fee for being a Honey Bee is $280.  Sign up anytime you like.  Class lists for 2016 will be mailed in December in your gift box with Honey Bee early registration opening January 1.

One more perk, at the end of the calendar year 2016 you will receive two $50 gift certificates.  One can be used in the first half of 2017 and one in the second half of 2017. We’re giving part of your registration fee back to you!

The fine print:  Class deposits for Honey Bees will be $50/day of class at the time of signup with the balance of the deposit due when we announce the class on the website.  Final balance due one month before the class.  All deposits and honey bee fees are non refundable.

We realize that you will want your friends to take class with you, but remember they have to be a Honey Bee too to qualify for early registration.

Give us a call at 410.296.0405 to join the fun and register to be a honey bee.

* 20% Honey Bee discount can not be combined with any other specials and does not apply to project class canvases or mystery class canvases.

The subtlety of color

Yesterday was the third installment of the Halloween Hooter Mystery Class. He's coming along quickly now.

This was by far the easiest class as it was mostly paint by numbers.

We filled in some of the veins on his wings.  We still have the prominent dark gray ones to do.

The eyes at the bottoms of the feathers were stitched in Tent and Outline Stitch and then there's all those beautiful colored stripes.

Here's where it gets interesting.  Our owl was painted in perfectly respectable shades of brown and gray.  Not my colors but they are what you expect on a halloween owl.

I decided to kick it up a bit.  We have this wonderful ribbon from Renaissance Ribbons designed by Zecca and the colors speak to me!  I used those as my inspiration and tweaked the colors in the owl to match the ribbon.  There are bright oranges, deep eggplants and rusts to go with the gray on our owl.

 Oh the magic of a subtle color change!

Don't forget, now is the time to sign up for the next Mystery Class, the Christmas Reindeer.  He's going to be so much fun.  Remember it takes 2 months to have canvases painted, if you sign up late, I may not have a canvas for you to start with the rest of the class.

See you soon.
