Hello there!
Welcome to Northern Nester, a conglomeration of interests that are just as varied as our crew of eight. 
We recently discovered Charlotte Mason’s philosophy of education, and have found it to be a great fit for our family.
Originally a DIY blog, which morphed into a THM recipe blog, Northern Nester is now a crazy quilt that may be better described as “an abundant feast of learning.”
That about covers everything, right?!
Here, you’ll find snippets of:
  • Living Education
  • Trim Healthy Mama
  • Handicrafts
  • Home Making
  • Motherhood 
  • Gardening 

Welcome to the table!

(Please, chew the meat and spit out the bones.)

  1. I finally read your about story after more consistently following you of later. What a terrific way to thread your family and the rest of life all together. My homeschool days are over but my oldest daughter is so I can share you all with her. Blessings

  2. Trying hard to declutter. Overwhelmed with all the photos from when our kids were little to the present time with 3 granddaughters. Add to it all the old pics I’m finding as we clean out my parents farm house. Had great plans to scrapbook when my kids were younger. Yep, never had time to do consistently. Tons of scrapbook stuff too. Any suggestions?

  3. I am a Canadian too, and keep coming back to your site. I’m so glad you decided to keep on with Northern Nester, rather than selling! My SIL loves your site, too! So glad I can keep on popping in here with the same folks behind it all!
    Wishing you all the best in your endeavors!
