About

Hello, and welcome!! I am Melissa, and my shop is Honeybee Creek Creations!

So what do I make? I make handmade goods based mostly in the art of crochet and sewing. But I don't stop there! I also occasionally knit and take up other hobbies as I get the inspiration/find the time!!

But who am I? I am a Nevadan by address and a Midwestern girl by heart. I grew up surrounded by many beautiful handmade crafts that Northern Indiana has to offer. My hometown is near a large Amish and Mennonite settlement and I was blessed to see and experience their handcrafted works first hand in little shops and flea markets. I also grew up in a family that crocheted, knitted and sewed beautiful items.

But who am I? I am a Nevadan by address and a Midwestern girl by heart. I grew up surrounded by many beautiful handmade crafts that Northern Indiana has to offer. My hometown is near a large Amish and Mennonite settlement and I was blessed to see and experience their handcrafted works first hand in little shops and flea markets. I also grew up in a family that crocheted, knitted and sewed beautiful items. For example, my grandma and my mom taught me how to crochet, and I have fond memories of watching my grandma crochet afghans and doilies and wished I could master the craft as she had. Even today, every time I pick up a crochet hook or touch yarn, I am taken back to my grandma's "little room" where she showed me how she did crochet. Creativity was encouraged in our household and I am so thankful for that today!!

I am also a RN and my experience is caring for cancer patients. I have a dog and a boyfriend and a mom who allow me to go on and on about what I want to make and allow me to subject them to a lot of my work! I hope to one day be able to call my studio my "office" and maybe even open a little shop in an arts district somewhere where artisans can share their handmade goods for a community and even interact with others in a creative and relaxing atmosphere.

The items in my shop are all handmade by me. I take care in selecting the yarns and fabrics to give a feel to the item that makes it more than "just" a scarf or a "just" a decorative pillow. I frequently give my handiwork names to give credit with who inspired me when I created them. Please let me know if you see something but are looking for a certain color or a little change in whatever. I am open to creating a item personalized for you!!

Each item will mention if it is made to order or ready to ship. If an item can be offered in a different color from my yarn stock, I will post that in the description!

My shop is also on Facebook! I will post special discounts for fans occasionally and sneak previews on new projects... "Like" me at http://www.facebook.com/honeybeecreekcreations

Happy Shopping!! And thanks again for stopping by!!

xoxo,
Melissa
