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!

the warehouse sale

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...

Summer Lovin’ had me a blast

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...

Dealing with Trauma Triggers

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...

White Girl Can’t Jump

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...

find your niche

This has been on my mind A LOT lately. It’s a conversation that I’ve had more than once with a friend. This is pretty much how it goes: The setting is an arts and craft festival. Me: wow, what a great crowd we’re having! Friend: if you aren’t selling here,...

March Madness in Macon

I participated in my first outdoor festival of 2018 this past weekend in Macon.  The Little Nest was not a hit. I sincerely hope it is not a sign of things to come this year! In the moment that was frustrating and upsetting, but I do my best to try to find...

Don’t Do it, Dolly

I often tease that Dolly Parton is the matron saint of the little nest I think highly of Dolly. And not for the two obvious, in your face reasons that you might think. She is a smart business woman.  She went from growing up poor in a small...

Celebrating small victories

As many of you know, I have this adorable little camper that I am in love with. Today I’d like to share one of the small victories I recently had with her! Come this June, I will have owned T@agatha (that’s her name, it’s a play off of the model name,...

peanut butter jelly time

  Social media is really misleading. It often makes it appear that we have it all together. Our lives/studios in picture perfect order. Our products ready for a magazine spread. But MY reality is so far from the online presence that I try to present....
