2015 Bring It On!!

Tonight I am sitting in my jammies....relaxing and waiting for the Ohio State game to start.
Our Christmas tree is still up and I'm ok with it!!!
I'm still enjoying the "twinkle" lights at night and I
think we will leave everything up for a few more days!!!
It's peaceful and I soaking it all in!
 
Today is also New Years Day.....
 How did that happen so fast!!!!?
It's 2015 and I am ready to embrace the new year with open arms.....
 
Do you make a New Years Resolution?????
I do not.....I'm not good at it.....instead I make a list
of things I want to accomplish both
personally and professionally.
I like checking things off as the year goes
on and it keeps me motivated and pushing myself to
reach the things that matter to me.
 
How was your Christmas!?
Ours was good!
 

We were all spoiled this year.
 


Andrew got Kev an OSU pillow from his Santa Shop at school and last year he got him an OSU ornament.....it's pretty funny in our house since my hubby is a huge Notre Dame fan but it's the thought that counts!
 


This little boy wanted 1 thing a DS and Santa delivered....
he was beyond excited!

 
Taking a minute to grab a quick photo of "us".
 
 
Pez was whooped from all the Christmas excitement too!
 
It's been a nice Christmas break and in between hanging out with the family we have also been working on things to the store.............
 
I have painted several pieces of large furniture and we are "refreshing" the store with lots of new merchandise.
 
 
Set of matching 1933 Vintage Dressers.
I love these and they are beautiful!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope everyone has had a chance to take a break from their everyday routine and enjoy some family time.....it really is nice
to slow down  for a bit.
 
Happy New Year!!!!!

{Hello Fall}

 Today is the first official day of Fall.
Summer is gone and the fresh crisp air has made its way into Ohio today. 
Poor Summer...I feel like it never really had a chance this year....we
had a few hot days here and there but overall it just wasn't very warm...lets hope
Fall takes its time so Old  Man Winter doesn't greet us to early.
 
Happy Fall
In October we are having a Kids Craft Club and the little crafters are going to be
decorating their own Canvas Tote Trick-or-Treating Tote bags. 
While on Pinterest the other day I found this desert...
and think I am going to make it for them!
 

Halloween Rice Krispy Treats but you can change the frosting to any color. Baby Blue for boy shower. Pink for girl shower. Even red candy melts with green sprinkles for Christmas.  The possibilities are endless.

For our monthly Craft Club the ladies are
going to be painting, distressing, and embellishing a large wooden chalkboard!
All information will be posted on Facebook tonight...spots fill up fast so check it out!

Around the store we have been adding touches of Fall all around.
This month we have also had the privilege of hosting our September Craft Clubs in the
space located right next to the store.  We are finalizing all the details but it will be The Nest Crafting Studio!  We are excited about this extra "extension" of The Nest and all the
 opportunities it will bring!  With the new space it will allow us to have more Kids Craft Clubs, Private Craft Clubs. Birthday Parties, and so much more!!!

 



I stumbled upon the following pictures and thought I would share to help get you
in the mood for Fall!
 Enjoy!

{Village Peddler}

This past weekend The Nest was a vendor at The Village Peddler.....
this was our first time participating in this event and it was an
experience we will never forget.
 
Unfortunately living in Northeast Ohio we have to endure the crazy weather
and we were definitely dealt with some crazy weather during this event.
I will say though that even at times when we thought the tent might just blow away....
we kept our spirits high and just had to laugh at the situation! 
 
Even though we had rain and high winds
on Saturday we were fortunate to have an amazing crowd of shoppers!
 
For most of the day on Saturday we had to have all hands on board holding down the tent!
 
 
 
Sunday was a brand new day and after surviving Saturday it was
 like a breath of fresh air!
We were able to open up the tent and enjoy the day and the customers!
For this event we brought a lot of new products which were well received and of
course we brought some "oldies but goodies".



Rain =  A LOT of mud!!
Good thing we had on our mud boots!
My sister and I just about tackled the Farm Park Crew when they came
around with straw...we were like two kids in a candy store throwing it everywhere!
 
Some random pictures of our booth.......
 






 
We sold out of all our pallet wood Ohio's.....we will be making more for the store!






It was fun meeting so many new people that have heard about The Nest!
 
 





We would like to thank everyone that came out and supported us this past weekend
 it means a lot to have so many wonderful people in our corner!!'
I would also like to thank......my hubby....without him well I couldn't do it alone.... he is my voice of reasoning and my shoulder of strength, my mother-in-law, my mom, my sister, and Phyllis!!!
I had a great team with me all weekend and appreciate each and every one of them!
 
THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!
