I’m Jocelyn, the one woman show behind The Nesting Spot. I have always loved creating things with my hands. The past 5 years I have turned that love into a little business where I make original artwork and personalized ornaments. These things take up most of my free time but when I am not working on that I love making items for my kids, my house, and gifts for friends and family.
I started out making sock and glove animals but am taking a break from that while the kids are little. It was just getting to be too much for me to do. I do look forward to designing and selling more creatures in the future!
I am also a wife and mother of three. Prior to kids I taught 2nd grade but now stay home with my own little ones. I love anything chocolate, traveling (although since the kids I haven’t gotten to do as much), and watching good movies. We would love to have our own vegetable garden but it has been so discouraging with the constant drought we’ve been in here for the last few years that I am not sure when we’ll get to it. My husband is a youth/college minister at a local church and so much of our time is spent with that as well.
I could go on, but hopefully as you read this blog you’ll learn some more about me.
Oh, and a HUGE reason I am so craftily inclined is because of my mom. She taught me to sew on her sewing machine, and even bought me the one I have. She has a love for color, nature, sewing, and art which led to her opening up her own etsy shop called Starlit Gardens. It is full of lovely quilted items to decorate your house or give as one of a kind gifts! Please check it out! And she has also just started a blog of her own.
