Invest time in Detangling

Tara Holmes | Hello Twirl | Dainty Jewelry | Mishawaka, IN | Cultivating Friendships When a dear friend suggested she introduce me to Honey earlier this summer, I was intrigued. I had heard her name before; I had seen her booth set up at an event or two, but I’d never stopped in to see what she was all about. I’ve never been too into jewelry, and tend to wear the same pieces all the time. It wasn’t until after Tara’s friendly nudge that I realized the local artisan was someone I wanted—dare I say needed? –to know. Around the same time, I had written a blog post about adding...

She Believed She Could… So She Did

Sarah Stump | Lifestyle Blogger | She believed she could… so she did | Imperfectly Perfect All parents dream of the perfect baby that has 10 fingers and 10 toes. But, this baby only had five fingers and half a left arm. Her mom said, “How will she tie her shoes? Where will she wear her wedding ring?” Her dad said, “Don’t worry, God has a plan.”This little girl grew up in a small town. Her parents taught her to never give up, to always have faith, to always try your best, but most importantly to always be yourself. They taught her that God had made her with His own...

Life in the Hive

Life in the Hive | Gold Hexagon Lariat Necklace | Dainty Jewelry, Mishawaka, IN | Tara Barletto | Honey Shea Studios In a world where we see everyone’s highlights, other people’s gifts can look more attractive than ours; we find ourselves comparing, measuring ourselves against who or what we think people are, piecing them (and ourselves, honestly) together whichever way makes most sense to us, leaving it easy to lose sight of the roles we play, and the purpose for which we have been created. On and off for four years now, my husband Vince has kept bees. What intrigues me about bees is that they all have different roles...

A Shirt That Speaks Truth

  I just love this version of the scripture found in the Common English Bible. But, I have to be honest with you, I didn’t know which version it was when I first fell in love with it. One day I saw a customer standing outside my market tent scrolling through his phone. I approached him and asked if he was looking to find out which version it was. He said he was. I said, “Great idea, because I am not sure either, but I love it.” He then decided to tell me that I made the quote up just for the t-shirt. That is clearly the farthest from the...

Birth Name to Business Name

“Pleasant words are flowing honey, sweet to the taste and healing to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24 CEB Yep, that’s me! Photo cred: Fotio at Fetching Market No. 6 “Is your name really Honey?” I get this question all the time. Yes it is! For most of my life, with the exception of the last 10 years, I went by my middle name Shea. I hated my first name growing up because I was teased so much in grade school. But now, I’m embracing it, and introduce myself as Honey, answer the phone as Honey. My dad is even calling me Honey Shea these days. The name Honey Shea Studios was every part my...
