We know from experience you’re a talented bunch so we thought we’d try to harness some of that photographic talent. ¬†To be honest, we’re also stretched thin and we really just need help ūüôā

If you’ve ever ordered from us online, you would have received a copy of our educational information cards. ¬†Well they’re about to run out so we’re going to do an overhaul. ¬†In particular, this time I would like to do one which shows some of the imaginative ways of using¬†Bee Lights. ¬†I often speak to customers who don’t use them because they don’t know what to burn them in… and that’s a crying shame as I think they’re one of the most beautiful things we make.

So, they say that a picture speaks a thousand words! ¬†Let’s show them the million things you can use as a Bee Light candleholder.

Any photographs chosen to go on our new printed info cards will receive a $200 gift voucher to buy any candles they want from Queen B online.  Grab your iPhone or your camera, fire up your Bee Lights and your imagination and send through your results!

Entries open: NOW!

Entries close:¬†11th August (that’s 2 weeks away)

Entries via: either post them on our Facebook page or post on Instagram and tag @queenbcandles

Stuff to know:¬†By entering you expressly give us permission to use your image¬†in social media and online (that’s pretty obvious given you would have posted it online!) and¬†we undertake that anywhere that we use the image we will credit you as the photographer (unless you say you don’t want us to)! ¬†For the images used on the printed info cards we will most likely not credit photographers as it can make things look cluttered and messy given the images will be quite small. Here are a few of the idea I had when I first photographed them (you’ll see why I need help with the photography)!

One of the wonderful things about having a Sunday/Monday as your weekend is that you don’t have to go to work on Monday’s.¬† It’s a great time to catch up on things when they’re quiet.

Today I’ve promised myself I’ll clear my inbox, which seems to be never-ending because¬†I keep getting distracted :-). ¬†One lovely¬†distraction was a beautiful photograph sent to me by stylist, Meagan O’Donoghue from The Style Palette Co.¬† I’m always amazed by the talents of our customers. ¬†You’re really quite an extraordinary bunch going about your lives choosing to make a difference. ¬†It shouldn’t surprise me given what we do, but it does and it is a constant delight.

Anyway, Meagan took a gorgeous photograph of our Mini-Marilyn Bee Light holders with a couple of Bee Lights. ¬†And the thing that struck me as I was deleting volumes of administrative emails was just how simple the candles and the holders are but how nature is so beautiful that you don’t need to fussy it up.

So in the spirit of making it a wonderful day, we’re doing a Monday offer today¬†– 20% off Brass Mini-Marilyn candleholders and 20% off the Pack of 10 Bee Lights. ¬†It’s spontaneous and open until midnight tonight only.

I can say hand on heart that our Bee Lights will blow your socks off when they’re lit. ¬†They are the ultimate testament to the brilliance of nature (and why we are so thorough with our wick testing)!! ¬†They burn for 3 or so hours each (that’s several nights of lighting them during dinner from every candle) and they don’t drip if they are out of a breeze.

And just in case you don’t think that I practice what I preach, here’s a view from where I’m sitting right now!! ¬†I did consider replacing the 2 in the background with new candles but decided that it was better just to be completely authentic. ¬†This is how I stay calm on a Monday in the face of 553 unread emails!

I hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Over and out.
