    4th Annual Save the Bees ATC Swap Due May 21, 2021

    At this time of the year, when everything is springing back to life, we should all be mindful of the importance of bees. Without them, we would not survive for very long. Last year, in my garden, I placed a new nesting home for the solitary bees. I placed it near my vegetable garden, so the bees who take up residence will have plenty of flowers to feast upon. I did not have any bees move in, that I noticed, so I am hoping this year that they will find it and make it their new home. My larger “bug house” needs to be replaced. I think that I will actually make my own, with sturdier wood. I did have lots of different creatures living in there, including a few bees! Nature is just so awesome!


    Some interesting facts about bees:

    The honey bee has been around for millions of years.
    It is the only insect that produces food eaten by man.
    A honey bee can fly for up to 5 miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour!
    The average worker bee produces about 1/12th a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
    A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip.
    A colony of bees consists of 20,000 to 60,000 honey bees and one queen.
    The bee’s brain is oval in shape and only about the size of a sesame seed.
    The queen bee can live up to 5 years and is the only bee that lays up to 2500 eggs per day.


    For this swap, bees are the focus. They can be nestled in the flowers, covered with pollen, hovering near the bee hive, or whatever you want them to be doing! In the past 3 years, the cards have been amazing! I am sure that this year will bring even more fun and creative ideas!

    Cards are to be standard ATC size, 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" and the cards should be straight and sturdy and in an individual plastic sleeve. Please include swap name, user name, your real name, date and location on the back of all cards.

    This is an open media swap. HD/HP, collage, anything goes! Whatever you decide, make sure that you have colored backgrounds.... no plain white backgrounds! Have fun with this theme! Be creative do your best work, and send in cards that you would be proud to add to your collection. I will do my best to swap media for media. Host cards are not required to play, but if you choose to send one, I will cherish it.

    US participants, please send a large address label and a forever stamp. I will provide the envelopes! Please be mindful that thick embellishments will require an addition ounce stamp for each card! The postal service has gotten much stricter about the thickness of envelopes.

    International participants, Please enclose a large address label and a well concealed US Dollar bill. I will supply the envelopes. Any questions?? PM me.

    When your cards are ready to mail, send me a PM for my address. If you have my address from previous swaps, it is the same. Try to mail your cards early!! I like to be prompt in sending back your returns.

    When you do receive your returns, please be kind enough to leave "you rock" points for the artist whose cards you received, and if you feel that I have done a good job as a host, please leave an ITrader for me.

    Who would like to play?

    I'll be lurking to see if I get cards done!
    I seem to be acquiring quite a few bee stamps!

    Lurking....

    Tomorrow we are expecting a bee man to come and safely remove the hive and bees under our bathroom tub.
    It's a jetted tube and there's a panel outside to access the motor. That's where the little darlin's got in. Hubs found a guy who will relocate them! So many places listed says they'll come out and kill them.

    I'm quite fond of bees and hope I can get some cards made. I'd like to lurk for the moment and will likely be back.
