My mom gave me a chance to follow my dream.

This shop started from a love of art. With the help of my mom, who has always believed in me, I was able to start this shop after graduating college. My mom was really the big push I needed to believe that I could own my own online business and that I could really sell my art and that other people would want to buy it. It is difficult to put yourself out there the fear being rejected, thinking "what if no one likes it?” really can stop you. Once I started telling people about my art friends and even strangers started telling me how they loved my stuff and when could they purchase something. It was a really great feeling to realize that this was a possibility and that maybe it will be something big in the future.

The name, Next Stop Willow Bee and Willow Bee, is a play on words from my favorite episode of "Twilight Zone". The business originally started out as Bee Cute Designs. My Nickname is Nikki Bee, and when I was younger I handmade all of my holiday cards (I still do) and I put Bee Cute Inc. on the back to make it look like they were bought. As I got older and started making more stuff I just labeled everything I made under Bee Cute Designs. Once I decided to go forward with my art and start selling things to people all over the world I thought Bee Cute Designs didn't fit the feel of what I would be making, so I came up with Willow Bee. Coming up with the name for my shop and business was one of the hardest things.

The creations in this shop have their own story and beginnings but they have all come from my experiences with help from those who are closest to me.
