Welcome to Inside the Little Nest

A 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!

Peddling in a Pandemic

This post is mostly for those people that are considering doing arts and craft events this Winter/Spring, but are worried about the pandemic. I slept in my van for out of town shows. This is a crude shot of my van one night at an out of town show.  It’s really hard to...

What’s going on with the little nest

If you’ve been watching my social media lately, it looks a lot different than usual.   This post is just a “this is what’s going on with the little nest” kind of update. The little nest as you know it is not going anywhere in the near future.  I will continue to make...

let’s go camping

That last post was depressing.  I promised the next one wouldn’t be.  So here is something a little more uplifting (at least to me) and it's all about camping safely during a pandemic. Courtney and I love to go camping and take day trips.  It’s a cheap past time that...

light shining through the darkness

Silence is Deafening

I avoid posting things on my business social media that some in society would consider “controversial topics.”  I put that in quotation because I don’t believe that skin color or sexual/gender identity should be considered controversial.  We are who we are. But...
