Sweet Melissa's Honey & Hive

After Melissa Wrin’s husband, Bill, brought bee hives to the backyard, he challenged his wife to help figure out what to do with all the honey the bees were producing. Melissa loves a challenge, and she also loves natural products. So, she started making lotions and lip balms. Friends and family loved the products, so she created Sweet Melissa’s Honey & Hive, where she is growing her business just a few yards from the bees. Her products have become so popular, the bees can’t keep up with demand. Learn more about Honey & Hive. Want to see more about the bees, check out the 2018 video.

Ask Cheese Woodworks

Chris Hayes turned his Fishers garage into a workshop where he and his wife Tonya make all kinds of woodworking items. You can see - and buy - them at the Fishers Arts Crawl on July 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Nickel Plate District in downtown Fishers. Their shop - Ask Cheese Woodworks - will be at Dottie Couture on 116th Street. Almost all the wood he uses for these unique items is from Indiana, most of it rescued after storms. One of his favorite pieces to turn is those pesky Bradford Pears, they may not be able to withstand a storm, but they make great ice cream scoops. See Chris at work and learn a bit more about his woodworking hobby in this week's One Minute in Hamilton County. Want to learn more about the Arts Crawl? Go to www.FishersArtsCouncil.com.
