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!

Medical Masks

Sunday, March 22nd, I dug around through my craft stash to see if I had the materials to make medical masks. I joke that all creatives have a stash...sometimes it’s supplies, sometimes it’s weed, sometimes it’s both.  All I’ll say about my stash is that I don’t share...
