Welcome to Inside the Little NestA blog exclusively for my handmade business-the little nest!
Here you’ll find blog entries about my business (new products, behind the scenes looks) and spotlights to other handmade businesses (specifically those owned by women). Welcome to my little neck of the woods!
But it’s not all about business!
I’ll also share some of my day to day (non)adventures, lots of dog photos, and have monthly product giveaways (follow inside the little nest for more details).
I’m really excited and passionate about being a creative business owner and I’m glad to share this journey with you all! To learn more about me and how I became a hand made business owner, check out my intro blog the little nest and me. Let the adventure begin!
As most of you already know, one of the ways I make a living is selling at arts and craft fairs. To those of you that are new to my blog, one of the ways I make a living is selling at arts and craft fairs. There, we’re all on the same page. 🙂 I often make...read more
Support the troops; Thank a soldier! Speaking from experience, it was always exciting to get a letter or package in boot camp. I was very lucky that I had a lot of friends that supported me. So I got mail on a regular basis. Some soldiers weren’t so lucky....read more
The last three months of the year (or in business terms, 4thquarter) is my favorite time of the year! I only have one complaint about it….the darkness! I HATE it. My partner has to listen to me gripe for weeks on end about how dark it is. I’ll be all...read more

I fear this one can get too long, so I’m gonna break it up into two posts. We had an incident with Ande yesterday that resulted in Courtney telling me I suck as a nurse. It will really lengthen this post to go into detail about what happened. He got stung...read more
Each year my partner, Courtney, has to earn a certain number of continuing education credits to maintain her license for work. In order to do so, she usually attends a conference in Savannah where I tag along. Typically during the day she has her...read more
The warehouse sale at the beehive is a fabulous event! It happens twice a year: once in January and once in August. The entire store gets turned upside down and rearranged to make room for all the product that gets sold at the sale. So what is...read more
Summer is usually a very slow time for me (business wise, anyway). It’s too dang hot to do festivals (at least here in the south) and generally boutique sales are lower in the summer, too. Usually I won’t take time off, but will instead just take on...read more
I'm super hesitant to write this post for fear that some will read it as nothing more than a political post. Honestly, it has nothing to do with politics. This is purely a raw post about where I am and how I'm coping with trauma triggers. I hope it can be...read more
I mentioned in a previous post that my dad used to work for a sanitation company. He's a mechanic and repaired the garbage trucks. In that same post I'd revealed we were really poor and that a lot of times he'd bring us home gifts that were actually things...read more
