December 2020:
Some big changes are coming to Honeybee Inspirations! Melissa has been busy revamping her business to merge both the creative side and the wellness side into one all-encompassing service for you. She is working on a new logo and branding as well.

A note from Melissa:
This year has been a time of change: a time for shifting, reflecting and re-evaluating. After many hours of meditation and discussion, I have come to understand that it’s better to work smarter, not harder to grow and succeed. With that in mind, simplifying my approach to my businesses is a priority. I have run the Honeybee Inspirations Facebook page for several years to promote my handicrafts and art projects. At the beginning of this year, I began my journey to become a Reflexologist. To promote this service and engage with the public, I created a second business page – Honeybee Inspirations: Yoga & Wellness and renamed the original page Honeybee Inspirations: Creative Artistry. After almost a year, I’ve realized that running social media (Facebook and Instagram) for two businesses is exhausting and time consuming… and therefore has been sorely neglected. I’ve also realized that my creative endeavors tie in with my wellness endeavors; the more I pursue growth and knowledge in wellness – in reflexology, in yoga, in aromatherapy – the more I feel inspired to be creative. With that in mind, I have decided to merge my social media accounts. Going forward Honeybee Inspirations will encompass both creativity and wellness under one Facebook page and one Instagram profile.
Thank you for all your support and I appreciate you all so much!

Honeybee Inspirations: Creativity & Wellness on Facebook and Instagram is where Melissa promotes her yoga teachings and reflexology business as well as the wide variety of unique, hand-crafted products she makes from books and bookmarks to jewelry, magnets, and more. 

In 2019, Melissa completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certification and began teaching yoga at Yoga PG. In 2020, she began training in reflexology.

Please contact Melissa at honeybee.inspirations@gmail.com to arrange shipping your selected items. Thank you for supporting small businesses in your Christmas gifts shopping choices.

Background: Honeybee Inspirations was created in 2011 by Melissa Rioux. Melissa was first introduced to journal binding by her long time friend Jessi Lynn Bell. Jessi wrote her first novel, hand bound it into a beautiful masterpiece and gave it to Melissa for her birthday in 2010. That book was the beginning. Jessi taught Melissa how to bind books and from there, Honeybee Inspirations was born. It was originally created as a journal binding business but soon evolved into an artistic outlet to explore and discover new creative ideas.

Melissa has traveled across 29 countries and has lived in 5. Through these journeys, she pursued her love of photography. Many of her original photographs are available through Honeybee Inspirations: Creativity and Wellness

The following are SAMPLES of what items are available to purchase. Marbled barrettes, bobby pins, bookmarks, key chains, jewelry; eggshell magnets.   And of course, the original start of Honeybee Inspirations are the unique hand bound journals!
Please contact us for shipping options for these unique handcrafted journals and marbled jewelry and accessories.
