I love my Hive Five Kit, but I totally understand those that passed it up and now have FOMO because it's gone. So if you are like me and love all the new things all the time, but also realize it's not feasible to get all the new things all the time. Don't get me wrong I get new stuff all the time...it's my second hobby (or maybe my 1st), but I also pass up things because I have to work with in my budget and space. I really need one of those SheSheds, but in more of a super deluxe size with running water and a wine fridge. Anyway...what was I talking about again...
Oh yeah, the Hive Five Kit. So I recalled a set of cards Tammy Stark did a long while back. Okay I didn't think it was that far back...but man does time fly when you're getting old. But I knew she had found a bee somewhere in Lawn Fawn to make her cards. So I looked back at her original post on Lawn Fawn. Bugs and Kisses was used for the bee. And now I have another old set to add to my list of wants because those bugs are adorable. The bee is just like the front facing one in the Hive Five set plus most of the party style sets have little hats and I know there are a couple of crowns floating around out there too. So shop your stash and see what you have on hand. The joy of Lawn Fawn is the sets flow together well, so don't be afraid to mix them up a bit and take flowers from one set, a hat, a bug trail, jelly jar from another and pretty soon you might have what you need to replace that set you are missing.
