If you are here, thank you for taking the time to read about our story.

    My name is Caitlin, I am a wife and a mama to a beautiful little boy. In 2018 I quit my full-time job to become a stay-at-home mom. I knew once I did this though, that I would have to find another means of income.

    I quickly decided to start a small reselling/thrift shop business to help support the family. After doing this for two years, it soon became very unfulfilling. I knew that one day I wanted to own my own business and do something that would in some way help others, and reselling items unfortunately was not that. So, in 2021 I took the huge leap of completely rebranding and starting from square one. 

    Back in 2018- 2021 My faith journey was at the very beginning, but through the years I experienced multiple divine interventions, and looking back was able to see that all of the struggles and events that had previously taken place in my life happened for very specific reasons. It all aligned and brought me to closer to Jesus.

    My family and my own faith is stronger than ever before, and Honey Bee Mine became what it is today. A brand dedicated to sharing Gods word, helping, and loving others. Rebranding has been all in one breath an emotional, difficult yet exciting journey, but one that I would not change for the world. 

    The goal of Honey Bee Mine is to continue to grow, and with that, continue to spread as much light, positivity, love, and hope, as we possibly can. This includes donating a portion of all sales to The River Kelly Fund. You can learn more about the fund by visiting www.riverkellyfund.org. This fund and the family behind it holds a special place in my families hearts, and greatly contributed to our faith journey.

    All I can say at this time, is thank you for being here. I could not do this without you. You are so loved, and so important in this life. I believe every single thing that happens in this life, happens for a very specific reason, and every kind and positive thing that is done causes a ripple effect changing lives along the way. Isn't that crazy, yet absolutely beautiful to think about? God is so good.

    Thank you so much for your support and wanting to be a part of our mission to spread light and love.

    Here is a little bit about my history with art, and the journey that led me here!

    Growing up I loved drawing and writing. That was a major outlet for me. I wrote "books", poetry, and would draw any chance I got.

    Fast forward to high-school, once I entered into my sophomore year, I decided to enroll in graphic design along with standard art classes. (A few of the above pictures are digital/hand drawn pictures that I created during this time in my life).

    At the time, if you were to ask me what I wanted to be when I was older, my answer was always "an artist".

    As many times as I'd say that as my answer though, I knew how hard it was to make a living that way, and I knew deep down that this dream probably wouldn't ever happen. That continued to be my answer to that question though for years to come.

    I ended up flying through every graphic design class offered in my school through senior year until I graduated in 2013.

    Once it was time to enter into college, that's when reality hit, and I knew I'd have to accept that being an artist was out of the question. I was not going to be able to find a job and make a living off of that dream.

    I ended up getting my associates in business management, not knowing what that meant for me in my future.

    Side note here, it's just BEAUTIFUL how God works in our lives.

    I eventually had decided that I wanted my own business, but had no idea what. I wanted to help people in some way, but no clue how, and had no clue where to even start. It was roughly 2015-2017 during this time.

    Fast forward again to 2018. I'm married, I have my first child, I left my full time well paying job as a Student Loan Counselor to be a stay at home mom. And that's when I felt God really starting to work in my life. To be clear He was always working, but at this time is when my faith journey really started.

    If you read "Our Story" above, a lot of what is in there, is what happened next.

    Many divine interventions, many obstacles, new relationships, and much growth happened during this time and led me here.

    Never in a million years did I think or PLAN on having a faith based boutique, or plan on making Christian art. God always makes a way, and even when we don't understand, He has a plan, and is working all things together for good.

    At this time, my designs are made using Canva, and Procreate on my Ipad mini, and occasionally I will with pen and paper, sketch a design then recreate it digitally. I love patchwork, watercolor, and surrealism, so a lot of my designs at this time represent this style.

    There is always more to say, but I don't want to make you read a book! I appreciate you, and it means so much that you'd take the time to read and get to know more about our family and this business.

    God Bless. You are loved.
