BESTeam Feature ~ CreativityBugs

This week I will be doing my BESTeam Feature on Creativity Bugs! This Shop on Etsy opened in January 2011. It is owned by two sisters Sue, aka: crafty crafter, and Sandy, aka: creator, artist, and seamstress. These two sisters are enthusiastic about crafting, so much, that what turned in to making gifts for friends and family has blossomed into a business endeavor.
Creativity Bugs specializes in handcrafted mini books, paper crafting kits, handcrafted gifts, handmade cards, paper crafts, card making supplies, scrap booking supplies, embellishments, craft supplies, and more!
Shown below is one of CreativityBugs handmade cards. The card is beautiful to give any time of the year, and perfect for any reason being that its blank inside!

Personally, Besides loving handmade products, especially cards, I also LOVE candles!
Candles are a necessity, not only can they scent your environment, look pretty, but they light your path when electrical power fails. Decorated in bold bright colors, here is a candle worth keeping out!

Sue and Sandy began crafting at an early age. Their devotion to crafting was learned from their mom, who lovingly instructed these two sisters on how to create something special from materials that were no longer useful.
As a youth Sue’s first Brownie Badge was for Art’s and Crafts! Other earlier projects she made were string loop potholders, remember those? I loved those myself, and enjoyed making those also! Sue also reused cereal boxes and plastic containers to make furniture for her dolls.
Sue’s sister Sandy is an artist, crafter, and a seamstress. In High School Sandy took art classes. These classes expanded her horizons, contributed to her flare for color and composition, and a yearning to turn junk into joy. There is none other who can find “A Diamond in the Rough” like Sandy can, while scouring garage sales and thrift stores, then turning the find into extraordinary gifts as she can!
Do you have a Spring or Summer wedding to attend this year? Better yet an upcoming anniversary?
This card would be a perfect card for either or these occasions. And not only that, you could give this card "just because"! Inside this card you are able to express your feelings, thoughts, and well what ever you want because its blank inside!

Overall I find this shop, Creativity Bugs a great place to shop for handmade products and cards. I am certainly impressed with their motto:"lovingly creating items for others to love & cherish". And I am also pleased to know that "We guarantee quality workmanship as nothing leaves our "shop" unless it has been crafted with 100% craftsmanship mixed in with creativity and a pinch of kindness & love".
So, go take a peek!
Be sure to check out their Blog as well.
Last week I found a fabulous recipe for Taco Soup that I want to try, on the next Wintry day here in Benicia, Ca.
