Welcome to the Shabby Nest

Welcome to the Shabby Nest. I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog where I can share my dual passions of decorating and creating! I have no idea why I have put it off for so long, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and here I am. I hope that some of my ramblings might be inspirational (even a little bit) to those out in blogland who love decorating/design and creativity as much as I do.

My name is Wendy. I am the mom of four beautiful children (3 boys who I will call One, Two and Three since all their names begin with the same letter – as do their nicknames) and one girl who I will call the Princess – for obvious reasons! I have been married for twelve years to an amazingly talented man – The Hubby – who works as both a Home Improvement Contractor and a Professional Photographer…How. Lucky. Am. I? I graduated from college with a major in Fashion Merchandising and started my career path by working at a Department Store in the Advertising Department, after that I worked for a professional Ballet Company in Marketing and Public Relations. That led into the jobs I currently have as a part-time editorial assistant (so I can be home with my babies) and an aspiring photographer – learning from my ├╝ber-talented hubby. How’s that for a round-about career path?

Don’t let the fact that I work as an editorial assistant fool you. My grammar is far from flawless. I write like I talk…and that tends to make me ramble…sentence fragments…lots of parenthetical remarks…etc. etc. (See what I mean?) But, I hope that in all my ramblings, there might be something of interest to someone.

My true passion is decorating. I have always loved it! So welcome to my Shabby Nest. Make yourself at home. I hope you enjoy!

I am more than happy to answer design related questions or to answer any other questions you may have. You can contact me by email at shabbynest (at) yahoo (dot) com.

I have always wanted a mudroom but have never lived in a house that has had one. Your little mudroom is so cute. Such a genius idea to use your closet. LOVE it!!
