Happy birthday ๐ŸŽ

So Bumblebee Crafts has just turned one!

It’s been an exciting first year with lots of creations and customers as well as a few learning curves, new product releases and working out what sells best.

Bumblebee Crafts is looking forward to its second year. We plan to work hard on instagram in the coming weeks, although we will continue to persevere on Facebook, even though it is trying to hide small businesses like us. And don’t forget all of our ready made stock is available through our Etsy shop http://www.bumblebeecraftsau.etsy.com

We have a few new arrivals this week which are already selling fast!

These tear drop pendants are something a bit different. Only one of each colour in stock at the moment (and the white and navy have already sold before the official release)!

These are available for custom order – like below:

We also have a new batch of silicone Geo Bangles in stock, now 10 colours in total.

Get in touch if you would like a custom order.

Visit our Etsy shop to check out your favourites – you can save them and create a wish list too!

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook @bumblebeecraftsau and share the โค๏ธ of #supportinghandmade and #buylocal

BEE back soon, ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ, Louise

An Exciting Start to 2018

Bumblebee Crafts wishes to thank every customer, friend and follower since we have been in business. We are just about at the one year mark.

Our first year has been good, with sales, positive feedback and some learning along the journey. But 2018 will be bigger and better.

Over the Christmas break I have taken stock and had time to think about or direction. Our current range of items will remain, but some new products will be appearing in the coming weeks.

I have been able to refine my ideas of colour and design for the silicone bead necklaces, both adult and Little Miss ranges.

The addition of the geometric silicone bracelets has been a success so these will remain in stock, but will be available for individual sale, not just in gift sets.

The keyring range will grow to include tassels and charms in some styles. We will also be introducing some gold keyrings alongside out steel metal keyrings.

Handmade Cards and gift Tags will remain in stock and be updated throughout the year as special occasions arise.

But the biggest excitement is my new additions to my range … and I hope you will all love them too!

Hair Accessories

Fabric Covered Button hair ties are available for purchase in sets of 3. Each button measures 19mm and snagless hair ties are used. Fabric is cut and positioned by hand, so variations will appear in each set.

Fabric Covered bobby pins and snap clips will also be available soon. The buttons will measure 12mm. The bobby pins are silver and snap clips are white.

These will be perfect to add to a Little Miss necklace to create your own gift set for a special little princess, but I can assure you they look great on adults too!

Earrings

These will hopefully be a great addition to the range, as a number of people asked last year if we had earrings.

We will have two types of earrings to being with: Fabric Covered buttons and Cabochon Druzy earrings.

All earrings measure 12mm round. The studs used are hypoallergenic surgical steel.

As a special thank you to our valued customers, any purchase made in January will receive a free gift. Just head to my Etsy shop to place your order right now!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It’s been a productive few weeks with Bumblebee Crafts joining the Facebook selling group ‘Handmade Spot Sales Australia’. You can find up to 3 of my items there every Friday at a ‘spot sale’ reduced price.

We also took part in the second online market held by ‘Glamping your Camping – Oz Style’ Facebook group and sold some items.

IMG_4207Our ‘Little Miss’ and ‘Rainbow’ necklaces are proving to be very popular at the moment. We can also do matching rainbow keyrings.

Justine Allen, from Perth, WA, was the lucky winner of our Facebook competition to win one of our ‘Little Miss’ necklaces and we can’t wait to find out when it arrives to hear her feedback! Remember you can purchase your own for just $8. They are sure to make any little girl very happy!

A new product line has been added to our range – some matching gift sets. Each set includes an adult silicone bead necklace and keyring. They come giftwrapped in an organza bag, as do all of Bumblebee Crafts items, making buying a gift so simple. Each set is unique and currently, we have about 6 sets available. They are just $18 per set.

Don’t forget to sign up to the Bumblebee Crafts VIP Facebook group. You receive 15% off every order and get free shipping Australia wide.

Bumblebee Blog #1

Welcome to my very first Bumblebee Blog.

Happy Weekend to everyone. It’s been an exciting first week of the website and we are excited that we have had over 400 views already! Bumblebee Crafts has also gained more followers on both Facebook and Instagram and we look forward to boosting our sales in the coming weeks.

To celebrate reaching almost 500 followers and the website launch, there is a special VIP Flash Sale for this weekend only. If you are not already a Bumblebee VIP then it takes just 1 minute to sign up ~ just follow thisย link. ย Then visit the VIP Facebook page to get the sale coupon code.

I have put together a videoย showcasing some of our new items this week too.

Christmas will be upon us before we know it … Countdown is at 100 days! If you have kids at school then the end of Term 4 is even closer. ย As a teacher myself, I know teachers get flooded with gifts at the end of the year. It’s lovely that the children and families value our efforts so much throughout the year, and even a small thank you goes a very long way.

Bumblebee Crafts has a variety of ready-made items which would make ideal teacher gifts (and something that is not a box of chocolates! – do you know how many boxes of chocolates some teachers end up with?) Choose from our range of Key Rings and Beaded Necklaces. We also have handmade cards ~ specifically Christmas and Thank You Cards that would be perfect to add to any Christmas gift item.

All items come gift-wrapped in beautiful organza bags. Cards are wrapped in cellophane pockets for protection during shipping. So most of the work is done for you. Just grab a pen and write your message!

if you have something specific in mind, or a colour theme, then send through a message regarding a custom order. These take just a couple of days to create and send off to you, so there’s not much delay between a ready-made item or custom order from our end.

To ensure items do arrive in time for Christmas, items will need to be shipped by Friday December 8th. Items are shipped using regular Australia Post, unless you wish to upgrade to express postage and recommended timeframes are 2-9 business days.

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are (and don’t forget to check out our sale!)
