We believe in the makers and creators, and we'd love to help you get acquainted with some of our favorites! That's why Mocc Life has decided to start a weekly blog feature: Handmade Friday! We are so excited to introduce you to some AMAZING makers!
We thought we start with a BANG! and introduce you to a super sweet mama who's is the definition of creative talent - Nicole of HoneyBeeTrue Co. Besides her ridiculous amount of talent, Nicole is known for her hilarious silly faces, her paint covered hands, and her adorable red haired boy we know as Beez.
Name: nicole (lower case is my preferred type)
Age: New to the 30's club
Wifey of almost 7 years
Mama to Beez (3) and step mama to Hailey (12)
Drink of choice: Coffee with all the shots
Hobbies: The gym/ Lifting and pinning fonts
Obsession: sharpies. All of them. Amazing coffee mugs
Shop name: Honey Bee True CO
Honey Bee (for my son Beez. My busy B)
True (for my lovely and talented friend, who for a split second was also the reason for the CO)
Our message: Be true, be you. It is tough to find yourself while living the lives that we do. There are so many things that try to force our being and our ways into something we are not. Some times we let these things get the best of us. I like to think that if we instill confidence in our youth and show them it is not just ok, but it is good to be different. "Be youer than you" -Dr. Seuss
Case in point, my shop is not like most others. I start with an idea. That idea becomes a design drawn and put together by me. I offer my designs on any of the tops I have on hand from 6-12 month up to XXL men's. I have a large selection on hand but if you don't see something you want, I can order that in for you too. The color(s) used on your shirt are also picked by you. All of my work is done one shirt at a time, by my hand. There are no screens or vinyl involved in my process. Again, not like most. My stock is made up of tops that I personally would wear or I would put on my kiddos. Comfort should not be sacrificed for good style.
I love what I do and hope that you fall in love with my brand the second you order your first HBT. It is a crazy thing, being a mama, running a shop and all the things between. But it is a good kind of crazy that I am so blessed to have found #naptimehustle #motherhustle #norestforthecreative #irunthis #nodaysoff (coming soon)
We are in LOVE with HoneyBeeTrue Co's designs (especially the #naptimehustle), but when I saw her "I Run This" tank, I knew I had to get one for my little tornado.
Because let's be real - he runs this.
And GREAT NEWS for you!! Nicole has generously offered everyone a whopping 15% off TODAY ONLY using code SHOPHANDMADE!!!
Run, don't walk over to HoneyBeeTrue Co. and take advantage!!
