Junebug Release is Coming Soon June 16

It’s almost here! I’ve been painting up a whole swarm of new fuzzbutt bees, Junebug release inspired toys, and making brand new embellished prints and goodies for this weekend! Check out what else is coming to Etsy June 16 at 9AM PST.

I’ve created original artworks in ink, graphite and new petite paintings for release on June 16 at 9AM PST! My original artworks often sell out within minutes, so be sure to set your alarms for right at release time. My First Dibs patrons on Patreon scooped some favorites already, so if you want the first chance to collect my new petite originals, you can sign up for First Dibs here.

I’ve hand-embellished new limited edition prints of my galaxy bee, “Nebula”! These 5×7″ sized signed & numbered prints made on fine at paper are releasing on Etsy June 16, at 9AM PST. There will be a very few AP prints (since First Dibs patrons had a crack at them!) so be sure to check Etsy here at release time!

New purses and cosmetic bags are coming to Etsy! These bee-utiful bags are sure to brighten up your wardrobe and be super handy while they do it! I only have a limited amount of each bag though, so if you see one you fall in love with, don’t miss out! They release June 16 at 9AM PST here.

More mugs! I’ve got more fun and fuzzy bee mugs coming to Etsy, along with some other designs too! They make awesome gifts, or you can always treat ‘yo self! They’ll go live on Etsy June 16th starting 9am.

 

Check out these awesome new Queenie hard enamel pins! This is a limited edition glitter colorway, they’re so sparkly! They’ll release June 16 at 9am PST, but the edition is limited and won’t be made this same glitter colorway again, so don’t miss out!

And I’ve got other fun goodies coming to Etsy too! Check out these new 4×6″ fuzzy bee prints, fans and pillows! The pillows even have removable covers so you can wash them and keep them nice and fresh. Only a handful of pillows will release on Etsy this Saturday the 16th though, so check right at release time 9am before they disappear!

When you order this weekend during my June 16 release, you’ll get new bonus release themed stickers with orders! USA recipients will also get Bentley wildflower seeds to help bees in your areas. Every little bit helps, and together we can do our part to conserve our local bees! I’ll also be giving bonus sketched on postcards to some lucky orders, and one extra lucky order will receive an original graphite drawing! Keep an eye out for release on June 16th at 9am PST on Etsy here!
