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 🙂

Blogger Recognition Award!

Blogger Recognition Award!

So todays post was going to be behind the scenes of my recent photoshoot but then I found a comment in my inbox telling me that I had been nominated for the Blogger Recognititon Award!

blogger-recognition-award-logo-2017

The rules that coincide with this award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Make a post about the award – I mean…. Who wouldnt???
  3. Give a brief recap of how your blog began
  4. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you wish to give the award to
  6. Comment on each blog, letting them know of their nomination and providing a link to the post.

I was nominated by the lovely filliefanatic at TinyHorseTalk.wordpress.com. Thankyou so much fillie!

If you like miniatures and model horses you should so go check her blog out. She also does a lot of crochet 🙂

StableStoreys started about two years ago when I realised that I was spending too much time playing virtual horse games instead of using the internet to let my creativity and love of horses big and mini be known to the world.

I started out with mostly model horses and now and then some real horses but now I kind of add little bits of other craft and life stuff in there.

StableStoreys has led me to make quite a few internet friends and also to get into YouTube.

Now for some advice: (Warning: My advise may be a bit crap)

  1. It’s a good idea to really try to make your blog or website name relate to your content. If you are blogging about craft don’t name your blog something like ”Fishnets and camping” Sorry bad example 🙂
  2. Try to use any social media you use to your advantage. Post links to your blog and put up sneak peeks.

I might not actually be following fifteen blogs but lets see:

 

cedarwoodstables at CWS Stables & Studio

Nichelle at Desktop Stables

Tricia at TriciaBookerPhotography

Karen at Draw and Shoot

Leah at shoestringstable

Roxanne at the Magical Canopy

Clock Work Dragons at Clockwork Dragon Designs

Inky at InkyOcean

Scroll Vault at ScrollVault

Scroll Quest at ScrollQuests

Lorrie at The Eff Stop

Rebekah at HorsFeathersBlog

Any hoo…

I can’t express how pleased I am to have received two blogging awards for this blog. I never thought I’d get noticed that much XD

Seeya!

Copperfox 10 Day Challenge Day One

Ok so once again I’m sorry. I cant quite belive it’s been 4 months since I last posted. 4!               So much has been happening and I have to post about a lot of it. In August I had guests over for a week, I was ill and I went to my friend Elva’s for three nights to film a short movie she’s written.                                                                                                                                                           But now to the post!

So I know this was done and dusted 8 months ago but I only just found out about it. In my usual late way. And I’ve decided to have a go. So here we go. StableStoreys takes on the Copper Fox 10 Day Challenge.

Day One ~ Inspiration day.

I get inspiration from many places.

Desktop Stables was one of the first model horse blogs I ever looked at. Nichelle’s stuff looked so amazing and it still does that I really wanted to try my own. My tack will never compare to hers but I hope that one day my standard will rise a little closer to Nichelle’s.

Tiny Horse Talk is another blog that really helped start me off. FillieFanatic’s little dolls house had me in fits when I first saw it.

I also get a lot of inspiration for my riding from real horses and real life riders. I have quite a few idols in the equine world. Carl Hester, Pippa Funnel and Mary King to name a few.

And as much as I may hate to admit it, I get inspiration from my mum. I get most of my inspiration to experiment and to make stuff from her. So thanks Mum 🙂

And some of the customs you see on google just blow me away. Like these for instance:

d103015df22d881dbf251cbe2116c8e1a6b2e67760626d49c17d4d13b0ce2f9307c71ffa9fee398c94d1cc9d4a0dba00

Credit to owners. Your work is amazing!

So um yeah. Also these pictures. Just wow.

Happy Birthday StableStoreys!

Wow. I can’t believe that I managed to maintain a blog for a whole year! I am so thankful to my followers, family, and friends for all supporting me in this and for regularly checking my blog out. |Although there is a friend who could maybe pay a little more attention to their emails… You know who you are ;)|

Happy Birthday!.jpg

I of course intend for my blog to continue for several more years, hopefully till I am an adult! But even if it doesn’t I want you guys to know that I love you and am so grateful to you all.

ThankYou!!!
