Our Bee Wonderful Project 2
Stop killing our buzz! Learn about our Bee Wonderful Project and how you can help!
Here at My Wonderful Walls, we care a lot about our environment. Like most folks, we want to do what we can to help make the world a better, brighter place. So, we started the Bee Wonderful Project.
Our Bee Wonderful Project began in the Spring of 2016 as a personal endeavor of Michael Goins, the founder of our company. The decline in bee populations, known as “Colony Collapse Disorder” has already had a serious impact on the environment. The truth about the alarming decline in bee populations really hit home when Michael recently took a trip to Honey Island Swamp, near his childhood stomping grounds in New Orleans. Formerly known for their abundant bee population, Michael was stunned to find there are no bees in Honey Island Swamp now. That’s why we decided to take BIG action in helping out some of our little friends - the bees.
Inspired by Earth Day, we are taking 5% of the proceeds from our Earth Day Sale and putting it toward our Bee Wonderful Project. Join us on our eco-friendly adventure as Michael uploads photos, shares videos and provides updates of the bee-friendly garden and beehives he prepares outside the My Wonderful Walls design studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

7 Ways You Can Help Our Bee-utiful Friends
From fruit, to nuts, to coffee beans, one out of every three mouthfuls of food in the American diet is, in some way, a product of honeybee pollination. So, if you’re nuts about your coffee, you’d better perk up! Bees are dying off at such a rapid rate, our food supply is at serious risk. Here are 7 ways you can help our ‘bee-utiful’ friends:
1. Stop using chemical pesticides: Neonic pesticides are the #1 killer of bees. The best way you can offer immediate assistance to our bee friends as well as other animals and insects, is to stop the use of pesticides all-together! Did you know when you use pesticides they make their way through the entire plant? That means if you use pesticides on your veggie garden, you are not only killing off pollinating insects, like bees, but you are consuming pesticides yourself and putting your own health at serious risk. *Tip: If your garden is in need of pesticides, try organic pesticides and natural insect deterrents like an herb garden, or night blooming flowers to attract bats - known as mother nature’s organic pest control.
2. Practice leave-it-alone gardening: Think about your garden as a habitat for wildlife, rather than a perfectly manicured lawn. Not only is it easier to maintain this type of garden because of the super low maintenance, but it’s also bee-friendly! *Tip from scientist Sylvia Fallon at NRDC’s Land and Wildlife Program.
3. Grow local: You don’t need those fancy-schmancy hybrids you find at plant nurseries to have a bee-utiful garden! They may look pretty, but most of them have the pollen, nectar, and even the scent bred out of them - which isn’t good for our bee friends. *Tip: To find out which bee and insect friendly native plants will work best in your area, visit the Xerces Society.
4. Grow wild: Plant native breeds of all shapes and colors that will bloom from early spring to early fall to attract bees, and butterflies alike! *Tip: Planting in clumps rather than individual flowers or plants will make it easier for our pollinating friends to find you! Also, Milkweed is a particular favorite of the Monarch butterfly.
5. Bee a smart shopper: When shopping for seeds to plant in your garden avoid any and all products that say “protected”. A product with this label means the plants and/or seeds have been chemically pre-treated with pesticides. *Tip: The best way to get seeds for your garden is to buy from organic local farmers, or smaller plant nurseries that specialize in organic gardening.
6. H2O will help them grow: It’s getting warmer outside and bees need cooling off too! Especially in drier climates. If you have a bird bath or a small bowl, fill it with a few pebbles and some fresh water. This will help the bees stay cool and hydrated so they can do their pollinating magic. *Tip: Keep fresh water on hand and change out daily to prevent mosquitoes from nesting.
7. Bee Brave: If you really want to get involved and help the bees in a BIG way, learn how to be a beekeeper! To get started, you can purchase a pre-made “bee box” at your local hardware store or farmer's supply store. Bees also make their homes from fallen branches and trees, so if you have a fallen tree branch on your property, drilling a few bee-inviting holes in the deadwood makes a perfect home for our high flying friends. This is one of the best ways to repopulate the bees and help save our environment. *Tip: For more information check out this inspiring video by Kirby Engleman, as she charms the beekeeper inside all of us.
We hope you’ll follow our journey and do your part to bee wonderful along with us!

Erin from The Indoor Garden Shop began her Etsy career years ago selling knitted items but while she loved knitting decided she didn’t enjoy the sales of knitted items as much. In 2011, Erin began selling jewelry making supplies in a new shop (oh what fun on Etsy) but it wasn’t until 2012 when she had the sudden idea to sell handmade thumbtacks and magnets that the Indoor Garden Shop was born. With her background in interior design and planning, Erin uses her passion for mixing texture and color to create interesting palettes to bring a pop of color to your home. Her floral pieces allow the “horticulturally challenged” a chance to create an indoor garden. Now Erin runs two successful Etsy shops from her Atlanta, GA home.

Kristen is a stay at home mom of two lovely kids, Kaylee and Mark living and working in Lansing, MI. Her children inspire her daily in all aspects of life, which is why she says it was a no brainer to name her business after the two, "brangelina" style, thus Kayma Boutique was born! Kristen has a passion to create that spills into all aspects of life. As a child, she was that sister who constantly made her younger sister make friendship bracelets, color and participate in all sorts of crafting with her. Kristen got her start selling on Etsy when her crocheting hobby started to get out of control (literally). Being able to share her work was wonderful and having people interested in buying her work put her on cloud nine so her entrepreneurial brain decided to go for it! Visit her Etsy shop for more handcrafted items including embroidery hoops, hand crocheted rugs, scarves and more! There is so much love and passion in every unique handmade item which guarantees top notch customer satisfaction.
This Wild and Free Embroidery Hoop features a hand embroidered floral arrangement with the quote “Wild and Free” on a linen background. The piece measures about 8” and is hand drawn and embroidered for a unique look. No two hoops will be exactly alike. This design would look great in a bedroom, living room, office space or anywhere the free at heart roam.
Ginny tells us she grew up sewing, drawing, remaking her aunt's old prom gowns into some wonderful new creation to play "dress-up" with her sisters. Her creativity was born out of necessity, being the oldest of 7 children in a household on a VERY tight budget. She turned this creativity to jewelry making about 7 years ago and fell in love with making whimsical, theme jewelry. Three years ago she closed her salon that she had run for 25 years and started creating more of the things she loves. For Ginny, there is nothing like the thrill of getting an inspiration for a piece of jewelry and opening box after box of beads and supplies to find just the right combination that ends up making a spectacular piece. She now is able to bring you that thrill via her Etsy shop, Ginny’s Boutique.

The locket measures 2” and is hung on a 32” chain and placed in a gift box so you can give it to someone you love or treasure it for yourself!

The Sapphire Key is owned by two best friends, Sammy and Cathy. The "business" started out of Sammy's house when she started making aprons that Cathy felt were showroom quality. Cathy convinced Sammy that they were better than mass-produced aprons in stores and that she needed to sell them to the world... therefore The Sapphire Key was born. The pair went from just aprons, to including eye pillows, dream pillows, jewelry satchels, owls, wine bags, and diaper pouches. Sam does most of the creating and sewing from her Savannah home. Cathy sews the owls with the assistance of her daughter, Hannah, and handles most of the business aspect of the shop. Please message them to let them know if you would like something created especially for you.
This adult sized apron is fashioned in a mustard colored linen and trimmed with retro pears and apple print and turquoise rick rack.

There is also a strap on the right side next to the pocket to hold your towel so you do not have to tuck it into your waist-band! Your apron will be slightly different than the one pictured as the red apple trim at the bottom in the picture is also around the pocket (as opposed to the top of the bib area), and the apple print on the bib area is not red, but the same as the trim at the waist. You can look great while in the kitchen or just look like you use your kitchen! Visit The Sapphire Key for more wonderful handmade aprons and be sure to check out the shop’s About Page for more on this shop.
Tori began making duct tape flowers as a teacher in Eugene, Oregon and sharing them with her students. The demand became overwhelming and prompted Tori to find a venue to sell her flower creations.

Susan started out just making hats for fun because she herself loved to wear them. One day her daughter saw how many she had made and said, “Mom what are you going to do with all those hats?” Susan replied, “Give them away.” Her daughter suggested she sell them on Etsy! Susan had no idea 19 months later she would be creating hats to keep her busy, while her husband Ron runs the business end from their home in Fresno, CA. Ron said he loves watching his wife being creative and it's such a good outlet, that he started two more shops on Etsy, "The Apicella Edge" and “Lucky Steampunk” to sell all the different items she kept making. He has now learned to make many items in those shops and enjoys it as much as his wife now. They enjoy all the time they get to spend with each other too!
This red cowgirl hat is a summer straw hat in size small/medium. In a sexy red color with red, turquoise and rhinestone embellishments, this hat is sure to be a favorite! Wear it rolled or unrolled and be wild and free this summer or use it to add to the décor of your favorite room!

Melody’s love for crafting started at a young age. She says her father could draw anything, paint anything, craft anything...and taught her how to draw cartoons, oil painting and wood work when she was in her teens. Her crafting took her to cross stitch needlepoint and then to jewelry designing about 12 years ago. She started making the boot anklet bling for her niece's wedding last year, which was a cowgirl themed wedding. It was so much fun and the demand for them started! Melody and her husband live in a very rural area about 45 minutes from Mammoth Lakes, CA, in the Eastern Sierras which they love. They have 2 horses, 5 dogs, 2 cats, 2 birds...just like a little zoo! The beautiful outdoors and her animals serve as an inspiration for many of the pieces of jewelry you see in Melody’s shop.
This rhinestone boot anklet/charm can also be worn as a choker and features Swarovski Crystal Drops and Magnesite Turquoise beads. It also has horseshoe with horsehead, wagon wheel and rowel charms, on an antiqued silver plated chain. Total length is 16 ½ inches but it is totally adjustable. Looks great on any style of boot and if you’d like Melody can make a matching pair. Convo Melody about a custom design and she will design anything you need!
Mitch has always loved art and photography. She says she enjoys photographing most subjects, but her favorite subjects have always been animals, especially horses as they have such a beautiful and graceful presence. Mitch recently decided to start her own project photographing all of the British native ponies in their native environments.

In September Mitch is visiting the U.S. and hopes to photograph some wild mustangs!
