Interviewing: Tabi Bee

Interviewing: Tabi Bee

Hello everybody!
Today I have a very special post for you. Well it’s special in my opinion. I have done a collaboration with Tabi Bee!

We decided to do a casual interview for you guys to read. Sooo I hope you enjoy!

»»————-¤————-««

Hey Tabi!
Hey Minki!

So tell me, why did you decide to start your blog Busy Bee?
I had a website before, but it was a bit of a random mess…soo after watching a crafty programme where someone on there was a craft/DIY blogger I think I just sort of decided that’s what I wanted to do because I love creating things!

Awesome! How did you come up with Busy Bee as the name of the blog?
I actually have a whole post on this, but to put it short- ages ago I used to always make little magazines with crafty stuff in them, and I called it Busy Bee, but also because I’m always making things and being creative 🙂

How do you come up with ideas for blog posts and which post is your favourite so far?
Hmm this is a tricky one because it’s normally something completely random that has popped into my head- but I like to write them all down in the notes app for when I don’t know what to write haha

I was wondering, what do you use to create your post title images?
I use Canva- it is free and super amazing!

Cool, I’ll remember that. Now. IMPORTANT QUESTION! Do you watch much YouTube and if so what channels do you watch?
If I’m watching YouTube it’s normally a lot of DIY channels and vloggers

Same! Ok other than your blog what social media sites do you use if any?
I have:
Instagram page >>https://www.instagram.com/tabithebear/

Pinterest>> https://uk.pinterest.com/tabithebear/

Twitter >> https://twitter.com/Tabithebear

Bloglovin>> https://www.bloglovin.com/@tabibear

Go follow her guys! So what kind of music do you listen to?
Pop? Things like Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, I also love Despacito (who doesn’t ahah)

Do you think social media is affecting young people’s mental health and/or making young people more self-conscious?
I feel like it can do /and does a lot, because of all the pressure to have it and get likes/follows etc, but it can also have a positive impact on a lot of people too by discussing politics, for example, and finding inspiration.

Do you think it’s important that people using technology like us bloggers, think about how technology can be sustainable for the future or do you think that that’s the job of the companies that manufacture the technology?
I think it’s definitely up to EVERYone to do what they can to protect the future- especially when it comes to electronics, even the little things like turning off your devices when they’re not in use, and dimming the screens when they aren’t needed.

What are you views on global warming and how do you think we as a society should be dealing with it?
As a lot of my followers already know, I am so so passionate about the environment- and believe that we should all and CAN all help to do small things each day that add up and make a huge impact. As a society we should be not ignoring what is going on-  and thinking that ‘charities and other people can handle it’, but actually going out and making the difference.

Ok time for some this or that questions

Cats or Dogs?
Catsss ^-^

Books or Movies?
BOTH, DON’T MAKE ME DECIDE !

Drawing or Photography?
Drawing 100% – I might not even have anything to photograph if it wasn’t for drawing! 

Beach or Forest?
Forest! I love forests and trees 😉

Cactuses or Succulents?
Cactuses!

Would you rather:

Be in a cave of Spiders or Snakes?
Snakes – spiders would be crawling all over you (agh) but honestly neither !!

Speak any language fluently or be able to speak to animals?
Omg?! Be able to speak to animals! It would be amazing to know what they think and they can understand you!

Have Wings or a Tail?
Wings – when I was really little i always wanted to be able to fly without wings, but wings are fine hehe 😉

Have no Elbows or no Knees?
No knees – you could still walk just a bit differently!

Own a Rabbit sized Elephant or an Elephant sized Rabbit?
A RABBIT SIZED ELEPHANT WOULD BE THE CUTEST THING. And i think an elephant-sized rabbit might squish me…!!

I agree. A rabbit sized elephant should be a thing. The Pygmy Elephant!!!

Anyways…

Tabi, thankyou so much for answering my questions! 

It has been SO fun, so thank YOU for interviewing with me!

It’s been so nice working with you 🙂

This is such an amazing post and I think it should be spread as far as it possibly can be.

Happy Tuesday Everyonee!

I love going 💚green💚 and saving energy, power, water…whatever it is- with little things that if we all did would make a big difference! And I also love planting things, keeping succulents and cactuses (get used to it, I prefer it to ‘cacti’! 😉 ) so when I had the idea to make a post about turning things green- in both ways- I was so excited to write ittt!

So I’ve made a whole list of things you can do to make your home more green- or add more greenery to it! I hope you enjoy it, and let me know which number is your favourite!

  1. Buy a small cactus, plant it in a pot and sit it on a windowsill!

  3. Draw a treehouse in a huge tree

Slightly Different

Slightly Different

Hello Everybody!

Today’s post is slightly different.

I was looking through Pinterest  when I found something amazing.

I love miniatures and also architecture. So miniature houses really excite me.

And this really really really excited me:

Modern House 2 by Jim Magni and Joan Behnke

It’s so amazing!!! ☼.☼ (。♥‿♥。)

I want it so bad!

I don’t think i have ever mentioned this before but I love to watch MyFroggyStuff on YouTube.

Her minitures are amazing and I have made some great stuff under her instruction.

towaco5oh recently shared a post with a couple of videos in it.

The channel thay came from is: The Square to Spare. There are some really good crafts on there that I may have to have a look at following.

This is my fave that I’ve looked at so far. I also love the below one.

Anyways sorry for the short post. I don’t have much time on my hands.

Seeya!

Volunteer Work

Volunteer Work

So as promised last week this post is all about my current volunteer job with the RDA.

At RDA, our horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities all over the UK.

Our network of 500 volunteer groups organise activities such as riding, carriage driving, vaulting, show jumping and Hippotherapy to up to 28,000 people each year.

We have been carrying out our life-changing activities for over 40 years, and take great pride in the exceptional standard of our instructors and volunteers (18,000 in all).

We offer activities for all age groups and, wherever possible, to people with any disability – and you’re just as likely to find an RDA Group in an urban setting as a rural one.

We rely on voluntary help, donations and legacies to deliver our services.

Taken from the RDA website > RDA

I started volunteer work with a local RDA group last summer and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

My group teaches and provides therapy for a class of disabled kids every Monday morning.

I do have to get up at seven every Monday morning but it’s worth it. I get there at about half nine and if needed, groom and tack one of the four ponies.

Then I walk one of the ponies around to warm them up and then line up with the others at half ten when the bus arrives. I then proceed to walk alongside my chosen pony holding on to a child’s leg and ankle and helping them learn how to control a pony.

It sounds incredibly dull when you say it like that but it is actually a really rewarding and satisfactory thing to see the children learning and enjoying themselves. Sometimes it can be hard or annoying because some of the kids are more challenging than others. But it’s always worth it.

As I said in my last post it also helps me a little.

I am so glad that my mum found the RDA last year and that they took me on.

A Serious Post

A Serious Post

Hey everyone.

I don’t normally blog about my feelings and emotions unless it’s related to a new model, a thing I have or such the like. And when I do, those feelings and emotions are pretty much always good.

But I am human and I do have days when I just want to curl up in a ball and block out the whole world.

Blogging is one of the things that really makes me happy. I love it. It’s like it’s almost therapeutic for me.

Also crafting can make me feel great but sometimes, if I do too much then I can get really down and start thinking about the pointlessness of life, why do I exist, how we’re all going to die eventually and then I just sink in to a black hole and can’t come out until my mum gets so fed up, we end up having an argument and then I tell her my feelings and  she makes it all better.

sorry if I just ruined your day
:/

Another thing that really gets me down is seeing other people riding. Which is inescapable where we live.

It makes me jealous of the rider cause I’m not them and I wish I was, it makes me question my love of horses cause ”if loving horses so much when I can’t interact with them causes me so much pain then whats the point?” and it makes me fall down another black hole where I wish my life was that of an incredibly rich person who could pretty much have everything they ever wanted i.e. a stable full of horses, a mansion, a walk in wardrobe, a… You get the picture.

Something that really helps my lack of horses slump is my volunteer job with the RDA.

I’ve never written about this before although I have meant to and I have now decided that next weeks post will be about that.

Anyways… My volunteer job basically has me next to a horse/pony for around two hours a week. Sure it’s not riding but it still helps.

And the last thing that gets me down is my lack of friends. I have a grand total of three close friends and then two other friends. I am a social person although I pretend not to be. I need to be surrounded by people to be perfectly happy and living where I do and not going to school makes that quite hard.

The friends that I do have are brilliant and I love them all but for me five friends that I either never see or see not very often is just not enough for me to thrive.

I do have my ”online friends” as well of course but even they are few. They are great! But few.

Anywaysss I’m sorry this post has been so dreary but I never really let this stuff out and I kinda cracked today.

I’m not using this as a plea for sympathy or friendship, I just… I guess I just wanted you all to know that I’m not perfect and if I don’t post on a saturday, sometimes it’s because I haven’t been able to find the motivation or the confidence to. Or sometimes it’s because I just havn’t been bothered cause I feel crap.

Again sorry for the long dreary post, I promise next week’s will be happier.If you’ve read all the way through, thankyou 🙂

Seeya.
