What is The Odd Bee?

My name is Heather, and I’m the evil genius behind the Odd Bee.

I’m a writer and lifestyle blogger in my early 30’s. I’m originally from the Midwest, but I’m living Main Line-adjacent, near Philadelphia.

I am a totally unapologetic, life-long fat person. I often write about what I’m wearing because I’m passionate about plus size fashion and fat positivity. Fat visibility is important because fat people are both underrepresented and misrepresented in the media. I am creating an image that I have been working toward for a long while, and I like to document it with the hopes of inspiring other fat people. I encourage you to take up more space in the world. You can see my fatshion and fat positivity posts under my Fatshion category.

I am also an avid crafter. I am compelled to make all sorts of things. I have made a few simple tutorials and lists of inspirational DIYs which you can find in my Crafting category. A short list of my favorite crafts:

  • embroidery, cross stitch, needlework
  • needle felting
  • sewing, by hand and machine
  • paper crafts using my Cricut Air (not sponsored, but hopeful)
  • doll making
  • jewelry making
  • wreath making
  • weaving
  • collage

Not only do I write about crafts of the arts variety, but I write about witchcraft as well. I’m a satanic witch. Satanists believe in free will, empathy, and personal autonomy. A witch is someone who practices the magical manipulation of energy to bring about change. It’s all pretty simple and non-threatening. Both satanists and witches have a bad reputation. You can read what I have to say about that under my Witchy Things category.

I am also an avid thrifter, trash picker, and upcycler. I keep an eclectic mix of vintage and handmade items stocked in my Etsy store. I sell things that are interesting to me, mostly toys, craft supplies, books, and home decor.
