I’ve realized I’m not serving the Nesting Place community in the ways I’d like to be, over the past few months I’ve received multiple emails from some of you telling me that free email service I was using to send out blog updates was no longer working.

So, thanks to the help of my sweet friends Emily & her husband Ryan from Jones Design Company, I’m working on using a new email service that will deliver your updates all pretty and lovely right into your inbox. I’ve so enjoyed getting Emily’s updates in my inbox (she’s one of only four blogs I subscribe to via email) that I asked her to help me along the way and I’m so grateful.

I’m still working out the kinks, but I’d love for you to subscribe to email updates and as a special gift, you’ll have access to The Nest Files, where right now there’s a free printable created by the talented Ruth from Gracelaced just for the Nesting Place community. I also loaded up my How to Make Tassels Ebook for a limited time it’s free for you if you are a subscriber!

Go ahead, sign up & sign in right here.

  1. love your blog and your book and everything about you! i ordered the tassels ebook and it started downloading and then never finished and now i can’t find it. i’m dumb and can’t figure it out. bought it on june 3rd through paypal. any help would be so great!

  2. Hi Carly!!! Oh so sorry, I’m no help with download issues, the link gives you 5 attempts so you can try it again, if it expired, email me & I’ll send you a fresh one. Or join the mailing list & have access to it right now, it’s not a download on the nest files so maybe that can help? If you need a gerund let me know in an email xo.

    • ok if you don’t mind just sending a new link to my email that would be great. I have no idea where to look for the original one. thank you!!!

  3. I love you are using your real name now, Myquillyn. It is beautiful! Your links are great and Let’s hear it for the Brave Jessica!! Atta-girl!

  4. If we are already receiving emails from you because we subscribed earlier, do we need to sign up again?

    • Nope! If you got today’s email then you are in!!! Click on that last link &login to the nest files,

  5. Love your blog! I signed up for the emails, but the email I received after I confirmed was blank.

    • it’s because I’m a crazy person, ignore that email, it’s supposed to say THANK YOU! but I can’t find where to fill it out just yet. #ThanksForPuttingUpWithMe

  6. So, do you share your top 4 fave blogs you have delivered? Or is that top secret information?! ;) Because you are one of my 5-inbox-delivery ones too. :)

  7. Loved this set of links this weekend! Thanks for sharing so much great stuff! And I really like your new email format – very nice. Also, thank you for the Nest Files stuff. I’m going to have to try a few tassels sometime soon! I love reading your blog. Yours is one of the first blogs I found years ago and it has encouraged me to be patient trying to fix up my home and to use what I have and can make.

  8. Hi! For some reason when I sign up I’m not receiving an email–I’ve tried twice, is it me? I’d love to get on your list!

  9. Found it in my junk mail! Sorry!

  10. Thank you so much for the links. I found you at aholyexperience.com and now you have led me into finding more inspiring sites. I love your blog!

  11. Yay! I won the beautiful home products from Mary & Martha! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. I know I’ll enjoy these gifts.

  12. Great blog! Ok, popped over to the Dyson site, RE winning the Motorhead, and the feature I like is that it’s cordless, because often I am too lazy to plug in the big, heavy vaccum cleaner, and as I have two cats and live in a small, one-bedroom apartment, I have to keep their litter box in my little bathroom. That means there’s usually litter scattered on the floor…immediately after cleaning, there is litter on the floor again :-( Having a cordless thingy would be great for instant, repeated clean-ups!!!

    Love your book! Its truly been a God-send to me at this time in my life. Really affirmed some decisions about my own home. Very inspiring.

  14. This cookware can easily be damaged and broken into pieces
    heating up without having any ingredient in it.
    From Rachel Ray to Mario Batali as they claimed that
    they are supporter and fan of the durability and quality of an enameled cast
    iron cookware. It will not take you long to become excited that you made
    a intelligent choice when you chose to have purchased her pots and pans set.

  15. Hello, is anybody here interested in online working?
    It is simple survey filling. Even $10 per survey (ten minutes of work).
    If you are interested, send me email to hansorloski[@]gmail.com
