About me

If you like books, makeup, and/or being happy, you’re in the right place. I’m Emily and I love hockey, reading, makeup, embroidery, and teaching my fourth graders. Stick around and let’s be friends!


Hey there! My name is Emily and I’m excited to share this blog with you. I teach some incredible fourth graders and in my spare time, I root for the Washington Capitals, play with eyeshadow, read books, write blog posts, and make YouTube videos.

I’ve always loved creating, writing, and productivity and I started this blog in 2015 to be a designated space for these hobbies and to keep me focused on positivity and all of the wonderful things in life I am so blessed to enjoy.

The name “Honeybee Joyous” is two things to me:

  1. A combination of two of the happiest words I can think of.
  2. A gentle command: “Honey, be joyous” reminding me to stay positive.

For me, Honeybee Joyous is a place where I can delight in my creative side and build a community. I hope it can be the same for you: a place to indulge in the things that make you happy and connect with like-minded people. You can expect to see a wide range of posts: books, beauty, organizing, creativity, study tips, DIYs, lifestyle, etc.

My blog is still small and growing, so it’s easy to get in touch through whatever channel you prefer.

I’d love to hear from you!
