Welcome to Honeybee Design! Hi, I’m Jessica. I’m an obsessive crafter, cook, novice sewer and occasional DIYer. I spend my days working as a marketing coordinator and graphic designer for a large contractor. It is a wonderful company, I work with terrific people, and I love what I do. It pays the bills, but it doesn’t fulfill my need to be creative, to be creating something. Honeybee Design began as a small stationery design business in 2001. Since then I have created invitations, announcements, and other paper goods for many lovely people. My family is a big part of my life. I have two nieces and two nephews and they are the apple of my eye. I am sure they will make an appearance in my posts.
This is my first blog post, and it’s a little funny to start writing this because the reality is, I don’t have an audience yet. I sincerely hope that I will be able to follow in the footsteps of the great bloggers that have inspired me. I realize that it has taken each of these women years to develop and grow their blog and readership to the success that it is today. But I am inspired, and know that when I set my mind to something I am able to accomplish it. So I am setting my mind to a new blogging journey. I am excited to see what this will chronicle in a year, or two, or three. It will be a diary, but instead of documenting my innermost secrets, fears and worries, I will reveal my inner creative, a place to document projects, share ideas, offer my designs and hopefully make you smile along the way. You will find many free printable downloads, tutorials for simple and inexpensive projects, as well as my musings on family, friends, food, design and the randomness that is my life.
