The Lake Nest
Hi! I’m “the Jackie of all trades” behind The Lake Nest. A small Art/Home Decor/Furniture shop that is custom/individually handmade by myself and my children out of our garage. The American Dream!
This wonderful online Handmade community is so inspiring and I am so grateful to have had the success in it that we have been blessed with. I believe an artists energy is reflected in their creations and buying a handmade product is so beneficial to the world. As a self taught designer, woodworker artisan I have grown in skill through some of the toughest lessons in life.
My Art has brought comfort, seen me through dark times and given me excitement. Going to bed with a mind racing of how to construct a new design to wake up with enthusiasm to get into the shop and create it. My hope is that everyone has the opportunity to find their talent/ skill/ Joy and put it to use!
