Lip balm holders make great stocking stuffers!

Queen B's Holiday Gift Guide

The gift giving season is about to begin!   If your Christmas shopping list is like mine, it can seem endless.  Family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, the mail carrier... it goes on and on! And it never seems to fail that someone will pop to mind at the last minute. I'm always on the look out for creative gift ideas.

Queen B's Busy Work has unique, handcrafted gifts and stocking stuffers for many of the people on your list, whatever their interests may be:

The Bath Lover

A cotton shower pouf or bath set is soft, luxurious, and eco-friendly!  Pick your favorite color and pair it with a selection of favorite bath products.

The Star Wars Fan

Give him or her a warm beanie hat inspired by one of the cutest droids in the galaxy!  Available for all ages and sizes - newborn to adults.

The Highly Caffeinated

Accompany a variety of coffees or tea with a reusable travel  cup or a mug and one of our cute cup sleeves.  They'll thank you every morning!

Animal Friends

Bunnies, tigers, puppies, and bears!  Surprise someone with a cute hat showing off their love for animals. 

The Wine Connoisseur
Pair a bottle of vino with a beautiful bottle stopper.  Queen B's wine toppers are crafted from re-purposed cabinet knobs.

The Skincare/Makeup Diva
Queen B's cotton facial rounds are soft on your face, yet durable enough to stand up use after use and work well for makeup remover, toner, or face wash to gently exfoliate. Makes a lovely addition to a gift basket.

Lip balm holder keyrings make a lovely small gift or stocking stuffer.

Wishing you a BEEautiful  Holiday Season!

Play Ball!

Before Halloween, I was contacted by a customer regarding my Infant Football Set.  She wanted to know if I could create a baseball set like it.

Well... I love a custom order, so it was Game On!  (pun intended)

I was so pleased with the results, I have decided to make this design a regular feature in the shop.  Because the World Series may be over - but, sharing your love of the game with a new generation is never out of season!

This could potentially change to an earlier date if I receive more orders than I am reasonably able to fill in that time period.

Is The Gift You Give Unique or Forgettable?

I believe that because every new baby is unique; the gift you give should be also. Not the same ol same that thousands of other moms to be are opening at baby showers across the country.

Consider a gift that's carefully handcrafted.  With a tiny bit of love in every stitch.

Which do you think the new mom will remember longer:  one of several flannel or cotton knit blankets from the big box store - or the handcrafted one created in her favorite color(s)?

Crocheted Baby Blanket, Mint, Charcoal Grey and Winter White

The 50 or so little tshirts she received - or the tiny beanie featuring her favorite animal, movie or cartoon character?

Or maybe that football cocoon set - created in traditional brown and white or customized with the colors of dad's favorite team.

Infant Football Set

When looking for baby gifts that become treasured family keepsakes, the answer is simple - handmade is always better!

The B Behind the Crown

I don't think I have ever taken the opportunity to properly introduce myself and my little hive to all of you.  (You have no idea how much I wanted to end that sentence with "all y'all".  My southern is showing)

So, in order to give y'all (there it is) a glimpse behind the scenes of Queen B's Busy Work, here are a few little facts about me - the Queen B!

-  I was born and raised (and still reside) in the mountains of western North Carolina.

-  From as far back as I can remember I have loved arts and crafts, from creating outfits for my Barbies, to coloring, to drawing, cross-stitch, sewing, and crochet - I have done it all!

-  I believe a brand new box of crayons is one of the great simple pleasures in life.

-  At one point I considered going to art school, but was talked into studying something "more practical".

-  I met the Man of the House in a discussion group for our college English Lit class.  So, there was a good reason that whole art school thing never happened - otherwise I might have missed out on meeting him!  ❤

-  I taught myself to crochet by using one of those "learn to crochet" kits with the book, hook, and some yarn.  There has been a lot of trial and error along the way.

-  I worked as a breastfeeding peer counselor and lactation educator for 13 years before making the decision to begin my own business.  With a lot of support and encouragement from the Man of the House.

-  I often give my handcrafted items as gifts to family and friends.  Almost everything in my shop was first created as a surprise for, or at the request of, someone close to me.

-  I have a rather serious crush on coffee.

-  I am a football fan.  More to the point, I am a Carolina Panthers fan.  Sundays (with the occasional Monday or Thursday) from August through January, you will likely find me in my comfy pants and a Panthers tshirt cheering on the boys in black and blue.  Keep Pounding!

That's me in a very small nutshell.  Anything else you want to know?  Just ask!

This Time It's Personal

Recently, my little grandson had stopped playing nearby to watch as I was working on a cotton bath pouf for an order.  He asked what I was making and if it was for him.  I explained.  And that's when he told me he needed a puff for his bath.

Well, how could I say "No" to that little cutie?

 I let him dig through my stash of cotton yarn extras and odds and ends to choose the color he wanted and set to work.

I think he's happy with it.  And he's already telling me he needs another one!
