Today, I could just cry....

Many of you are aware that I've been working diligently on organizing my studio in hopes of getting back to creating as often as I can. On Sunday, when I made my way out there, I discovered my studio has been INVADED by bees!!!

It seems we were caught unaware that honey bees have been entering the outside wall over the course of the summer and have made themselves a nest of God only knows how huge! When the remanents of Ike's outer bands and the eye of the storm passed through Ohio on Saturday, with wind gusts into the 75 mph range, tree branches and other debries blocked their entrance, wanna take a guess where they "migrated" too?

Something unknown to us has began the "killing process" as I must have witnessed a burial ground of nearly 100 bees on the floor of my studio alone! Today, we will be contacting a local bee keeper in attempts to remove the bees {safely}, their nest, and repair the damage they've caused. I'm hoping for at least a few large jars of honey for the inconveinence!!!!

But first and most important to me is retrieving all my beloved paper and art supplies!{{{{GASP!}}} My hubby has already been warned that my suppplies come first in any and all attempts to remove these. Please keep us in your prayers......

Cathy, this sounds awful. Hope you will find a bee-keeper very fast to take care of this problem. Wishing you all the luck retreiving your items.

Yikes - hope you get those pesky bees outta there! We had them in the attic this summer, very worrying, but thank goodness they're all gone now.
