Welcome to my shop! Here at ButterBeeScraps, I loooooooooooooove my metal, and do my best to bring it to you at rock bottom prices. I originally opened this shop on a whim in January 2013. I was working as an Engineer in a consulting office at the time and had fallen madly in love with scrapbooking…and was spending a small fortune on crafty supplies every single month. The purpose of ButterBeeScraps was to fund this new (totally legal) addiction.
The following year…in April 2014…I was laid off from my job as an Engineer due to the decline of work in our office. Since I live in a pretty small town, Engineering jobs are not easy to find, and it was important to both my husband and me to stay in the area and not move to the big city. My scrapbooking got me through this difficult transition from Engineer…to feeling worthless…to focusing on building my “whim” into a real business.
I now work too much, but am happier and healthier for it. I love what I do sooooo much now that it all feels like play 🙂 …and thanks to my many wonderful customers (a.k.a. you), I have grown from stocking just a few metal filigree embellishments and Tibetan charms to stocking over 500 items, including many other scrapbooking embellishments and jewelry supplies. I now stock rhinestones, cameos and cabochons, small hardware items, and many jewelry findings and beads.
Although I stock a ton of metal yumminess here at ButterBeeScraps, it is still just me, myself and I running the whole show out of beautiful Rossland, BC in Canada. I run this shop based on my own core values…respect, honesty, integrity, authenticity and quality 🙂 I also love to share and teach, so make sure you check out the many free tutorials I offer on my website 🙂
If you like to support the “little guys”, and are looking for a more personal shopping experience, you’ve definitely come to the right place! I pride myself in providing excellent customer service – a ButterBeeScraps customer is always a happy customer 🙂 If there is something you cannot find in my shop, please feel free to contact me and make any special requests. Also, please take a few moments to read my shop policies and FAQs for important information regarding shipping, my refund policy and even a rewards program.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and “happy shopping” 🙂
