New and Exciting Things!

It's been a busy year! Last year, I took a much needed break from blogging to spend time with my sweet family. I enjoyed spending time with my six kids, and still do. I have been working on new printables and activities and I have also been pursuing another hobby of mine, photography.

This blog originally started as a place for me to keep track of all my various activities and printables and to share them with others. It has served it's purpose well, and I have loved creating a site where people can come and share ideas.

I will continue to post things from time to time, but I have also redirected my efforts into other endeavors. I'd like to share them with you, too!

You can still find me here, at My Busy Beehives.

You can also find me on Etsy at the shop name Celebrate All Year. 
Follow this link to be redirected now: Celebrate All Year  
I am also on Facebook: Celebrate All Year FB page .
And also on Pinterest: Celebrate All Year Pinterest page
Later this year I will be opening a new site, 
and I will update here with an address soon!
(A selection of my most popular {Frame it! Friday} 
printables have been moved, and are now available for digital download on Etsy.)

You can also follow my photography at Julie Christiansen Photography .

bee party

The BEE PARTY turns 1!
A year ago, I decided to open up my blog and start a weekly link-up and the BEE PARTY was born. 
It has been a great year and I want to thank all of you for helping this party grow. I have enjoyed all your creativity and feel so blessed to have been a part of each week.
As most of you know, we have 6 beautiful, active children; the oldest is in high school, and the youngest is preschool age. They are my joy and fill my days. We are in the best and busiest time of our life, and I have found the need to simplify my schedule. I am so sad to inform you all that I have decided to discontinue the BEE PARTY for now, to more fully focus on my family. They are only young once, and I don't want to miss it!

So, thank you, I will miss our weekly meet-ups.

Of course, I want to share the final features from last week's party, I hope you enjoy!
