Back from the dead, Nested has returned with a new focus and a new outlook on life.
As a stay-at-home mom I've had almost two years to discover which of my passions mesh best with my role as a mother. During this time I've done more crafting, more sewing, and to a large extent, more living outside of my comfort zone than any other time in my life. But for the most part I haven't documented any of this. Nested was always about finding things online and, to be honest, I just don't have the time to that any more. Stepping away from my computer and doing things for myself and my daughter is really my newest passion.
While so much of the original Nested was about making nurseries and babies look beautiful, the new Nested will be much more about discovering parenting secrets, enabling a fun way of life for both adults and kids and finding new creative outlets . More importantly Nested is certainly not only a blog for parents anymore.
Take, for instance, Outfitting Gatsby. This multi-part feature will document our attempts to prepare for and attend The Art Deco Society's Gatsby Summer Afternoon. The Gatsby event is about DIY, sewing, history, music, food and, most importantly, living differently. I think that could also be said about the new Nested.
