if mr. re-nest read that title, he would laugh his butt off. no joke. he and i have an ongoing debate over social media….the time spent on it, its worth, how it changes relationships….it’s a healthy debate (he’s anti-social media as the world’s last facebook holdout) that i don’t think will ever end. my side of things? well, i’m in marketing. i believe in social media. i believe in it’s ability to create connections, to help build brands, to help inform people, to help develop relationships. and for re-nest, social media is my way to get the word out to all y’all about what i’m doing, where i’m going and to share with you. so, yeah, i love it.
and, there was no better day that proved the very power of social media than the day of the st. mary’s 2nd annual holiday shopping event here in sycamore, illinois. i had a booth there and while the event was going on, a lovely woman came up to me and said “oh my goodness, i was looking for you! i saw your work shared on another friend of mine’s facebook page, and i just had to come see you in person!” first off: mind blown. we had an amazing conversation, and turns out, she is one of the owners of an adorable boutique in downtown sycamore. by the time our conversation was over, names + phone numbers had been exchanged, and she wanted to talk more about giving me the chance to have my work in their store! again: mind blown.
fast forward a couple of weeks and here we are to today. officially, as of today, i am so unbelieveably excited and honored and over-the-moon to share that several of my re-nest studio pieces are being featured at SIS – Shop In Style in downtown sycamore, illinois! this year has just been so incredible, and to have this happen to finish off the year is totally the icing on the cake!
so to start things off in my display, i’m going to share a couple of my very faves from the re-nest shop! all available for custom order, of course! if you happen to be around my area of town, please stop in to SIS, say hello, check out the amazing clothing + accessories and my little display in the window. we all love you for it!
