The Snug Nest

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m Gem, the designer-maker behind Snug Creations, where I sell my hand knitted accessories & yarn-based home décor both through my online shop here and on Etsy.

I blog about cosy living for modern mums to help them enjoy life’s simple pleasures because in a world that moves so fast, it’s nice just to slow down, create memories, enjoy the company of family and friends and cherish the good times.

  1. If you’ve been keeping up with the blog or reading the newsletter, you’ve probably already heard that I’m going to be stocking a selection of stunning products by ‘From Babies with Love’, so you can buy organic baby clothes and ethically produced toys and gifts (I’ve nearly finished getting all the products loaded up and ready for you to buy - it’s a big job!). So, I thought I’d write a quick blog post to tell you a little bit about what they do that makes them really special.

  2. Announcing new not-so-spooky Autumnal home decor and easy halloween costume ideas.

    Autumn is well and truly here - the air is becoming crisp and the leaves are wonderfully crunchy on the pavement. That must mean that halloween is nearly here - a time for fun with family and friends. Whether you are a halloween fanatic and enjoying taking the kids trick or treating or if you’d prefer to avoid all that and want to bring some seasonal decor into your home, I’m sure you’ll love Snug’s new decor pumpkins.

  3. I am delighted to announce that I have just taken delivery of a range of products by ‘From Babies with Love’. I know that you care about high quality, beautiful clothes for your little ones as well as the gifts that you give, so I also know that you are going to absolutely LOVE these products!

    From Babies with Love is a company that does things a little differently - and with a whole lot of heart! Read on to find out a little more about what’s coming to Snug...

  4. Want to know more about which newborn photography style is right for you?

    If you are reading this then (maybe) congratulations - you are expecting a baby! Or perhaps you have recently become a parent and you are hoping to book a professional photographer to capture those special memories of your new addition to the family.

    But what style of photography should you go for?

  5. The Growing Trend of Newborn Photography
    You can’t help but notice that more and more new parents are opting to capture photographic memories of their newborn babies in those precious first days in a professional studio. No longer is this something accessible only to wealthy young families and celebrities - there are options available for almost all budgets.

  6. After starting the blog recently with such gusto, it’s been rather neglected in the last few weeks (hopefully I can now get back on track with it again). There’s a very good reason for that though because I have been incredibly busy going through the process of becoming compliant. This is a complex, but important safety measure, which was a lot of work, and VERY time consuming, but I’m delighted to say now that all my children’s products are now fully compliant.
