Oh yeah, now I see some hands!

You can now order your children’s school uniforms online and have them delivered straight to you, or your work, or grandma’s. Whatever suits you that’s the beauty!

Today’s advice: I can see those of you who unliked The Central Nest the day after the Christmas giveaway was drawn. So probably don’t bother to join again just in time for next year’s comp.. #justsayin

EDIT: The Christmas Prizeapolooza is a giveaway designed to say thanks to all those who support the blog all year round. Having said that and just to clarify, it doesn’t matter if you only found us and ‘liked’ us the day before the comp that’s fine! This is a shout out to those who choose to only like us for competition times.

The only reason the Prizeapolooza is growing so much every year is because all the local businesses can see what a great little community the Nester family is. We love local, we support each other and provide a great community to have contact with others around us.

So, if you have friends that you think will benefit from the nester community invite them to join the family. 2018 is going to be a great year for us and the bigger we can grow the community the greater the 2018 Christmas Prizeapolooza will be.

Thanks to all of you who support and share the love of The Central Nest,

Talent. Skill. Approachable.

Clever. Quality. Afforable.

I seriously think I could go on and on about all the things I love about JEM Creative Design Co.

After growing up with a dad who worked in printery Janessa developed a real love of all things paper and design. She says at school she had a pencil collection that a full time artist would be envious of, she would often have title pages more detailed than the work that actually followed it! She knew from an early age her future would be laced will illustrations, fancy fonts and plenty of colour!

4 years ago while on maternity leave with her entirely scrumptious little bambino Janessa wanted a special something for his nursery so designed it herself. That’s when JEM Creative Design Co. started! 23334085_748621915329451_703408838486945275_o

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} A Smallprint on Christmas

There is something special about being able to remember just how small your little people were and just how much love you have for them. The gorgeous Jess from Smallprint Central West can help you do just that!

Smallprint Central West is a small business that provides handcrafted fine silver jewellery that captures your loved ones finger, hand or foot prints. They can also capture your loved one’s artwork or handwriting! 15241249_1151306551663117_7734549388064542575_n

What is remarkable is the story behind Smallprint Central West. The business was started back in 2012 shortly after Jess’ son passed away.  She says she had her son Tyler’s prints taken while he was in palliative care in Sydney and once she returned back home realised there was no one in the area who could help turn his prints into a permanent reminder. So, Smallprint Central West was started. Jess says the business gave her a reason to get out of bed each morning and something to concentrate on during her grief.

That’s the part that makes Smallprint Central West so special, it literally comes from a place of knowing. It’s knowing that you want to cherish those memories, it’s knowing you need to remember the size of the fingerprint. It’s the knowing that she can create a keepsake that will keep families feeling closer to someone who passed too soon.

Smallprint Central West travels and can be around in those times of grief. Jess says she can been welcomed into homes at times when the world around them is crumbling. Whether a baby was born sleeping, a child lost to SIDS or capturing an elderly person’s fingerprints before it’s too late. 24899865_1491935704266865_1516579497655757499_n

Smallprint Central West also stocks a special print taking kit that can be posted to funeral homes so that a family can capture a print and order when they are ready to do so.

When you support Smallprint Central West you are literally helping to support someone’s family. Jess says she is often handcrafting new pieces at 5am while her children are still sleeping!

Each piece is hand made by Jess. She doesn’t send them away to be a made in a factory, they are made in her home. The fingerprint range is actually printed directly into silver which not only captures maximum detail but also means your loved one actually touches your pendant.

Smallprint Central West also recognises that sometimes life can be really tough so they offer a one month layby on every order.

Make sure you capture your loved one today:
