Welcome to my Nest!

There are so many things I try to do that I enjoy, all the while still taking care of a family, that sometimes I lose my serenity.

"The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium." ~ Robert Platt.

This had always been true for me and until I had my second child I kept a diary. It has been 4 years since I had written anything down and I need an outlet!

When I don't write, I talk to my close friends and share my experiences. Every woman, wife, mother needs a friend with whom she can share anything with, to unwind, and not feel judged. I have a very few that have been there for me when I needed them. Whether it was to help me get through a tough time or laugh with and have a relaxing time. Thank you Lord for such a blessing.

I have decided to combine these two things to help me stay a little more sane. Here I will share with you a little bit of my life, my thoughts, ideas and creations.

Grab a cup of tea and unwind with me!


  1. I think I started blogging for the same reasons as you - a need for a space and an outlet for different parts of myself. Have fun!

  2. Hey, welcome to blog land Yelena! Enjoy your creative outlet

  3. I can't wait to find out more about you and your crafty endeavours. Your quote of the week comparing happiness and perfection is so true, life is not about everything being perfect, life throws curveballs at us and usually the person that comes out the other side is stronger and wiser.
