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!

We’re trying New Things

I started the little nest SEVERAL years ago.  It was a true leap of faith that came from a place of desperation.  I was miserable in a regular 9-5 job in an industry that didn’t really respect women to allow many opportunities for growth.  I had no money saved up. ...

Ande’s Saga

Many of you may remember that our sweet pup, Ande, tore a ligament in his knee back in 2018.  He had a successful surgery to repair it.  But the Vet did warn us that it is not uncommon for the ligament in the other knee to tear as well.  We’re sad to say that day has...

TRL Total Request Lyrics

It’s probably pretty evident by now that I’m a TV junkie, but I also LOVE music.  I’m especially a fan of 80’s and disco.  Music is so incredibly powerful.  Music can transport us to another time.  It can remind us of someone from our past.  And it can even evoke...

E-mail Frequency Changes

We’re changing our e-mail sending frequency. This is a change I should have done a long time ago, but I’ve been dragging my feet for quite a while.  The truth of the matter is, I don’t like creating the e-mail campaigns and I don’t want to be an annoyance....

We’re BACK-ish

As some of you may have heard, on March 23, 2021, the city of Atlanta announced that it will start issuing permits to Class E events!!! That “class E” part is irrelevant to most of you, but what it means is that MANY of the Atlanta festivals we know and love will be...

Hello, light!

Sometimes we get stuck. I honestly think that’s where I’ve been lately.  Stuck.  It’s hard to get unstuck.  Once you’ve fallen in a hole, it’s hard to get out. I can’t express my gratitude for my partner.  Granted at times we sit in the hole together and cry about how...

I’m sad. How are you?

We’re approaching the one year anniversary of when our world literally turned upside down.  I’ll be honest, I’m sad.  How are you doing?   Many folks are doing just fine   I think it’s important to acknowledge that many people are doing just fine.  Some of...

Love always wins

Y’all, I don’t know how to talk about the inspiration behind this card and magnet without telling the story, and I don’t know that I’m ready to tell the full story. So, I’ll try to keep this short and sweet.Here’s the bottom line: there was an unhinged woman in my...

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...
