Creating Cozier Nests

Hello! I'm Joy.

I'm the proud mama of two awesome little dudes - Simms and Jasper. My husband, Greg, is a high school biology teacher, and we have a cozy little nest in Jackson, Mississippi. I've always enjoyed crafting and decided to open up an esty shop shortly after my first son was born. I had been handprinting personalized onesies for him to wear, and I wanted to share my creations with others.

I have a Masters in Environmental Science and work full time with software developers who build GIS applications for Emergency Response (to help first responders manage hurricanes, floods, and other disasters). I believe in creating beautiful things and trying to make the world a better place all at the same time. So, I donate part of my etsy proceeds directly to disaster relief organizations and charities.

It's a wonderful, rewarding, and busy life. Everything is handmade in my "studio" (ahem...our dining room table) in Jackson, Mississippi. Most of my crafting occurs on Sunday afternoons or late at night when our little boys are sound asleep. They are my *best* creations yet.

I am thrilled to be a part of etsy. I love being part of a community dedicated to making beautiful, handmade goods. I'm excited (and humbled) to have been featured in Country Living Magazine, Mississippi Magazine, Portico Magazine, Jackson Free Press, and BOOM Jackson.

Thanks for visiting. And thanks for supporting handmade!
