Behind The Hive

Erin
ErinThe Hive's Queen Bee
I’m a right brained creative, part time social media strategist, full time middle school teacher, bacon lover, goofy nerd, happy introvert, fabric hoarder, craft addict, a dreamer and a single mama of two. I have a thirst for creativity and a deeply rooted love for creative small businesses and all things handmade.

I enjoy designing and creating in those few quiet moments during nap time or at night, when I’m not busy taking care of my little bugs, grading, or running my shop Bugabaloo, Inc. (www.bugabaloo.co) and The Hive Handmade (www.thehivehandmade.com), a supportive handmade community on IG, FB, and Pinterest!

I love to make all the pretty things! I enjoy using bright, cheerful colors whenever I can and sometimes I add just a hint of big giant nerd to my work for good measure.

Designing and making gifts and goodies with my own two hands helps me to reflect and find focus. It frees my anxious mommy mind and washes away the stress of the day. To me, creativity is therapeutic and good for the soul.
