Aspen Leaf – The B Nest Studios – Red Deer Alberta

Earlier this year we were asked if we could make an Aspen Leaf for a new sign titled “The B Nest Studios” Upon further discussions with Bee & Tad of “The B Nest Studios” we decided to donate this aspen leaf to them.

Why – well Bee and Tad’s first book recently won an international book award. This children’s book is titled “What Bee will you Bee”, the story by Bee and wonderful, dazzling artwork by Tad.

This fall The B Nest Studios teamed up with The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre and they opened a store in September at the Bower Mall in Red Deer, Alberta. The Child Advocacy Centre allows kids and families that are affected by child abuse to get the help they need right now. They have professionals from every arm of the system there to get kids into safe spaces and places, without making them bounce around buildings and people for weeks. There are RCMP, social services, psychiatrists, social workers, medical professionals, lawyers and many other people that meet on their own time once a week to get these cases through as fast as possible and get these kids back to what they should be doing… being kids

We feel so lucky to have been able to participate in a small way in Bee & Tad’s amazing journey.

The Aspen Leaf measures approximately 10 inches high by 9 inches wide. It was attached to their metal sign as shown below.

Chickadee Nite Lights 2020

The Wild Bird Store in Calgary asked if we could make Nite Lights for them. They wanted handmade in Alberta Stained Glass items.  We converted our Chickadee and Alberta Rose design for one and came up with another Chickadee design for the 2nd one.

These Nite Lights measure approximately 4 inches wide x 3 inches high and they are attached to an Ivory Base night light fixture with a white light bulb.

These Nite Lights can be bought at the Wild Bird Store in Calgary – located at 5901 – 3 Street SE., Calgary, Alberta. The link to their website is    https://www.wildbirdstore.ca/

Garden Bee and Poppy 2020

One of our clients often closes her messages with a Buzzzzzz notation which prompted us to design a rod poppy with a bumble bee attached as a gift to her.

This is another design to our Garden collection of plant pokes.

Garden Butterfly & Poppy

We were asked by our granddaughter Poppy if we could make a Garden Poppy with a Butterfly for her teacher. From her suggestion we came up this design of a Poppy flower, with a small Butterfly attached.

With a rod attached this is another enhancement to our Garden collection of rod Butterflies, Dragonflies, Frogs and Ladybugs.
