As an artist and a designer I’m always finding new ways to express myself. This year I’ve had some time to play around and make some really cool jewelry and have even sold a few pieces!
A few years ago…. like 13… there was some rap song that said “B”… referring to bitch. It quickly grew into our universal name for all co-workers! Hey, B! To this day… there’s a whole group of us who still call each other “B”! It’s turned into a sweet term of endearment though. No longer reserved for bitches… but rather a loved one; a reference to one of our tribe or crew members!
I’ve carried the nickname, B, Plan B, Queen B and even Sting… back in the day when my hair was cut like the wrestler… and I was young and free and dancing around like a BEE!
Most recently, I had my ex decide to be mean and nasty to me again!!! In a text I was called the “C” word, the “B” word and “Sting”… I politely signed my response with a cute little honey bee… he replied… “yes, you are the QUEEN BEE”!!!! LOL!!!
So without giving you all the details… and because my posible “tell all” book and “polygraph party” are each titled…. QUEEN B!!! Here’s the tidbit I promised you behind the name of my new jewelry line!
I don’t have time to deal with mean ex’s on the level in which they deserve (I only have one…. the rest are cool)…. AND NEITHER DO YOU!!!! So instead, take the talent that God gave you… turn the negative into a positive! You can’t get back the time or money they stole… But you can grow… and make more money off an idea that was created by the positive spin you took… by their negative actions!!!!
HERE’S TO THE “QUEEN B’S” OF THE WORLD!!!!! GO GET YOURS! And if you know a Queen B who could use some support or encouragement…. share this story and hopefully it will “sting” just enough to motivate them to do the same thing!
PEACE, LOVE and HONEY (money) … LOL
