The leader of her group and kingdom, Queen bee is a force to be reckoned with. She is Crucial to her community’s and kingdom’s survival, and the future generation’s prosperity and continuity depend on her. A Queen Bee does not just mate and lay eggs but also is tasked with other responsibilities. As a Boss lady, and a comrade, she fights for her and her hive’s life. Often mistaken as a monarch ruler, a Queen Bee leads quite a democratic kingdom where worker bees are given equal chances of selecting their next Queen Bee! Everyone is equal in her kingdom.
For me, the Queen bee is a powerful expression. There is power, decency and influence attributed to it. At a glance, you can see a Queen Bee is a Boss lady! While worker bees and other bees do their part of the chores, she gets most of the work done and is the sole entity in continuing her species.
In modern pop culture, the reference has a negative connotation and has been listed as a Queen Bee Syndrome, but no one denies the power and influence of a Queen Bee. She gets things done, lives an independent life according to her values and gets things done! As opposed to what has been written about Queen Bee, in today’s changing times, Queen Bees know their privilege, and therefore they do not pull the ladder up for those coming behind her. She makes way for other future Queens!
Queen bees truly facilitate other bees’ progress.

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
