"How are you going to make money?" a common question when I tell people about my BeeHive studio idea. I don't really have a good answer except "It's more of a networking opportunity..." But some of my regular bees, and a few random visitors as well, have suggested I have a "tip jar" so people can toss in some contribution for using my studio, materials and gray matter.

I actually did some google research on tip jars and was underwhelmed at the options available. So I created my own...

I found a charity-type box at Staples and then customized it with Legos, of course. I think it has a nice serene feel to it, don't you? Very GREEN. (Subliminal thought: "Green. Think GREEN.")

Ah, a calm, lovely, pond-side park...

You have to look a little closer to see the "story"...

And this guy here is IN the tip box! I wonder where he got that bone... ?

Anyway, come see the amazing tip jar in person! And put some green stuff in it. (No, Lilah, not boogers!? eeew.)
