About

The man I love gave me a name - HalesBee.

I’m not sure how it came about, but sometime early in our courtship, my husband began calling me HalesBee. A cute little nickname that stuck, it soon became his own little term of endearment : “You’re my HalesBee.”

When my passion for creating led me to open an Etsy shop and it needed a name, I didn’t hesistate. HalesBee had to be a part of it. And thus, HalesBeeHandmade was opened.

Supportive to a fault, my husband helped me set up my own home office where I could create, photograph my items and keep up my HalesBeeHandmade shop. He lovingly deemed it ‘HalesBeeHandmade Headquarters’ or HBHM HQ. And so HalesBeeHandmade became a location as well as a name.

As I continued on Etsy my creative interests expanded; from jewelry to self-taught crochet, then on to knitting and continuing to any new DIY vein of artistic expression that struck me. It wasn’t long before HalesBeeHandmade was not just a noun, but also a verb. “What are you doing today, HalesBee?” my husband would ask. “I’m going upstairs to HalesBeeHandmake.” I would respond happily.

It didn’t take long for HalesBeeHandmade to become an adjective. My husband dubs my new items and ideas “very HalesBeeHandmade” or “HalesBeeHandmade beautiful.” One day while spring cleaning, my husband even wrote “HalesBeeHandmade Products” in the dust on the TV screen in the bedroom. “Look! I got you advertizing! You’re on every channel!” It was so funny and sweet I had to leave the dust for a few days longer – or maybe weeks :)

Without the support of the love of my life, HalesBeeHandmade would never have come to be. Sure, I’ve always had a creative nature, but without the name HalesBee I may never have pursued my shop and continued my creative expression. I do dream of the day that HalesBeeHandmade is my day job and makes me millions (or at least enough to live on). But until then I just hope that my customers are as excited to have HalesBeeHandmade products as I am to call myself HalesBee.

Thank you for dropping by to see my shop and read my story, I hope you pop back again soon!

    I'm HalesBee, so nicknamed by my husband. My handmade items are whatever crafty things I happen to be addicted to in the moment. I am self-taught in all my crafts and love to learn. I love yarn, dogs and my family - not necessarily in that order :)
