What was the reasoning behind selecting a bee as the logo for Bee Festive?

The Bee symbol has always held a special place in my heart.
The bee has been a symbol of various things throughout history, including hard work, diligence, community, and productivity. In recent times, the bee symbol has come to represent something even more significant: environmentalism and conservation.
Bees are essential pollinators, and their role in the ecosystem is crucial for the survival of various plant species. They also play a significant part in the production of honey, which has been used for centuries for medicinal and culinary purposes. However, over the last few decades, bee populations have been declining rapidly due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and disease. The decline of bees is not only detrimental to the environment but also has economic consequences, as bees contribute to the global economy through the pollination of various crops.
The bee symbol, therefore, has come to represent the importance of protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. 
Moreover, the bee symbol has also come to represent unity, teamwork, and community. Bees work together in colonies, each playing a specific role to ensure the survival of the group. They are also highly organized and efficient, with each bee performing its duties with precision and focus. This aspect of the bee's behavior has led to the use of the bee symbol to represent teamwork and cooperation in various contexts.
I love the way that Jot Studio has incorporated my logo with different festive occasions - Birthdays, Little bees / children, Anniversaries, Valentine's day, Christmas and more.
Additionally, I carry a variety of bee-related, South African products from Owl in the Moss, Esjay Artistry, Mareli Illustrations, Anna Rosholt Jewellery, and Amanda Jayne Candles and Wackadoodle Crayons.
