A Big Welcome to: It's a Bee's Life by Tee-aibo Designs

Hi all!  This week I'm trying something new and different.  Because my computer use this week is going to be very limited (if at all), I have a great group of visitors sharing their wonderful posts with you!  I hope you'll take the time to read their posts, leave a comment, and visit their blogs (and follow too) if you get a chance! I think this week is going to be fun and I hope you'll join in. :)

The final visiting post comes from Sonya from It's a Bee's Life by Tee-iabo Designs.  Sonya is a talented creator who is scheduled as a vendor TODAY at a highly reputable event, The Harrisburg Natural Hair Care Expo.  Please wish her luck, and lots of sales!

Sonya put up a fun post recently about old-time sayings.  Take a look, I bet chances are high that you'll find one on there that you haven't heard for years. The post took me way back...and many of the things my grandfather used to say were on it.  It was nice to see where the origins might well have come from for them.

and you can find her blog here: http://ladyteeiabodesigns.blogspot.com

Sonya's got a fun-filled post that left me smiling ear-to-ear up on her blog too. A recent proposal that her son made to his girl, hoping she'd say yes to a prom request.  I loved this video and you can read the post and see the video here (thank you for letting me share, Sonya!).



RING POP WINS A DATE TO PROM!

Okay, so I really, really, really had to beg my son to allow me to post this!  This post cost me 2  






Chick-fil-A milkshakes! {LARGE}  ...but, it's so worth it!





A couple of weeks ago Isaiah asked me to buy him a ring pop.  For those of you who do not know what a Ring Pop is here's a pic.   

He said it was for a science project.  Yea, right...not!  Of course, since I didn't believe him the request was denied!  
 2 days past by...

Obviously, time was of the essence so, this time around Isaiah decided to tell the truth about why he really wanted the ring pop.  He wanted to ask a girl to the upcoming prom.  Most of Isaiah' crew were coming up with creative ways of asking the girl of their choice to prom.  So, he couldn't like be...the odd ball out...now could he?  This time his request was approved!  I'm such a sucker for romance ♥♥♥.

So...I brought the ring pop, and then he requested for a ring box.   So, I found a ring box, then he requested for a note pad.  So, I gave him one that I found in my stash, and then he asked "Mom, can you draw a pic of the word"Prom" really nice & color it, since you have great artistic skills and all?"  Sigh...really???  Whose project is this again?  Okay, so I'm a sucker for flattery too!  I wanted to make it seemed like he did it, so I made it not too fancy.  Here's a pic of what we I came up with.


...And here's the link to the video one of his friends recorded of Isaiah asking Her to be his prom date.  He made up a Rap song w/the notepad from my stash.  Isaiah fumbled a couple of times, but the end result was a...YES!

I know Sonya's work. I'm wearing one of my shirts right now. Actually I wear it a lot, so I might become "the lady with the Express Yourself Bee who You are" shirt". I also absolutely loved the prom proposal!

Theresa said...

Awwww! Now that's the sweetest prom proposal EVER!

mail4rosey said...

I saw you modeling your shirts in her shop. They do look great!

Sonya M. Jones said...

WOW! Thanks for all of the pleasant comments everyone! Also, thank you for the compliments on my art. Can't wait for my son to see this when he gets home from school. I really am blessed to have two great children. They've given me a few gray hairs along the way, but I wouldn't trade them for nothing. It's moments like this that make you smile from ear to ear.

BIG THANK YOU SHOUT OUT to Rosey for giving me the opportunity to be a guest blogger. {{{BIG HUGS}}} Btw...the event went well despite a few glitches. I will post about it soon. In between orders that is. :}

LOL Kenya! You model my shirts very well. #number1model

Finally, if the equity in your house at the time of your death is a bit more than the amount your debt is,
your estate keeps that amount in the event the home is sold.
But, although it might be an easy task to secure such a borrowing, consumers should be especially careful concerning the deal they end up with;
in fact, when you start investing in bad credit mortgages is just too late to understand the steep interest rates and tie-ins involved.
It's been well publicised lately the housing market is
on the brink of your crisis - in fact, the crisis has hit the US already.
