Please Join Us for the Inspired Nest!

It's getting closer and I can't wait!!! The Inspired Nest art and treasure hunting retreat still has spots available. Sign up here to join Heather of Speckled Egg, Heidi of Birds of a Feather and me of right here for two days of crafting, treasure hunting and fun!!

It's in May (May 15th and 16th to be exact!) and is only about a month away! Will be each be teaching a workshop on nest inspired crafts. The nest I'm making is actually very similar to the one I made with Martha Stewart. We'll have pretty much all of the material all ready for you. The best part? I get to take Heidi and Heather's classes too!! Believe it or not, it will be my first time taking another artist's workshop. I'm so excited and my wrist is already tingling with thoughts of adorning it with one of Heidi's bracelets!
Here's more info:

Join us for one OR both days!


May 15 & 16 in Brimfield, Massachusetts


May 15th ~
Sourcing at the famed Brimfield Flea Market
Have you ever felt a bit overwhelmed by the grandness of Brimfield, or any flea market? Not sure where to begin? Heidi has been traveling to buy at Brimfield for years and will guide you through the many fields and share her favorite sources for finding all the vintage elements you could dream of to add to your creations. There will be time to spy other treasures along the way too!

Welcome Dinner at the Publick House Inn
and Charming Swap

May 16th ~
A day of creativity with three amazing classes, luncheon, & Vendor Faire!


Heather Rowley ~ Mother Bird's Nest
In this class, we will create a fabulous wreath to add to your Spring d├ęcor. We will mix natural elements, vintage finds, and other lovely trims to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art to “feather your nest”!

Heidi Wallingford ~ Sparrows Dream Cuff
We will create lovely fabric cuffs using simple hand stitching techniques and adding various vintage trims, buttons, lace, charms, and a secret inspirational message lines the backing. In the end, you will have created a beautiful piece that will tell the story of your amazing time in Brimfield!

Crystal Hanehan ~ Needle Felted Wool Nest Box
In this workshop we’ll be making soft and warm nests out of sheep’s wool perched on a fabulously decorated box! A lesson on needle felting will be followed by the fun of adding bits of vintage paper, ribbon, eggs and more to your box and nest!

You’ll leave with three beautiful and useful pieces of art that you can gift to someone special or treasure yourself!

Registration is still going on!

Hi Crystal,
I have already signed up for the Inspired Nest Retreat but I have a couple of questions. There was mention of a chat room that there was going to be set up some time this month I think. Is that already somewhere??? Also....are going we to have swap partners for this event too?
If so, I wanted to start hunting for swap goodies. I'm probably rushing things a bit but I've just been wondering where we are at.
