About

 
 

Hello! My name is Becky and I'm the maker behind most things here on The Nest.

The Nest began when my sister in law fell pregnant - with twins! I began practicing my sewing skills to make burp cloths and bibs for my new (and first!) niece and nephew. One thing led to another and I became addicted to making things for little bubs.

When my turn came, I struggled to fall pregnant, but that didn't stop me from collecting beautiful handmade toys and nursery decor for my one day baby.

When I finally fell pregnant with my first baby in November 2016, I started daydreaming of all the things I wanted to make for him, how I'd decorate the nursery, and my new life as a mumma-to-be.

But on March 27th, 2017 our hearts and dreams were shattered when our baby boy was born sleeping. I put everything on hold for a little while, but eventually I reopened my shop and started to write.

I took a tragedy for me to realize how therapeutic creating and writing can be. I am so so nervous to share my extremely personal story, but if it can help just one person out there who might be going through the same thing, then it's totally worth it.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site, I hope you like it,

xx Becky
