My Husband's Grandfather once told me he has 'royal blood'. He said he was 'stung by a queen bee'. Funny man! Honey is one of the yummiest things ever and bee keeping has become a real trend as colonies are suffering from colony collapse. Where would we be with out these precious insects. Fashion hasn't missed this buzz and here are a few brilliant bee inspired prints and designs.
It has been beautiful here in Seattle the past few days. This is really one of the best places where you can appreciate creation. Below are a few more wonders to inspire.
I think a good surface designer can make any motif into a commercial design, example? I just sold a design with a huge parrot on it, odd but beautiful. I feel there are less and less unusual or unique designs out there, truthfully there are hundreds of great designers out there making floral prints just derived from runway. Boring!!!!

Also remember nobody can do what you do.
