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 🙂

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!

All Things Shire

Hello!

Remember these guys?

And how I managed to choose the wrong foal? Well. It has been a long time since I had to post about a new horse. Or in that case, horses 🙂

But that time has come again and I will now introduce you to the correct foal this time…. Frodo!

And I just noticed that he still has his tag on. Oh well!!! Not something I usually do but never mind. He is soooo cute although the blanket trim on his back is a bit weird.

Also I don’t believe (correct me if I’m wrong) I ever posted about this guy:

That’s Gandalf. I’m not entirely sure when I got him but it was some time recently. I think.

And I finally have a name for this lovely lady:

?

Galadriel.

Hurray! They all have names and the family is reunited!

They do need shownames so my question for you is this. What beautiful name can each of them have as a showname?

Goooodbyee!
