About Me


My name is Erin and I’m the author of the blog HOW TO NEST FOR LESS™.

Started in May of 2011, How to Nest for Less™ was my effort to reclaim my creativity and artistic capabilities while transforming my home one project at a time and designing on a dime.

My blog currently features Do It Yourself (DIY) projects, furniture revamps, crafts, home décor tips and tricks, recipes and home improvement transformations.

In addition to my full time job as an Art Director and authoring this blog, I am a member of the Ace Hardware Blogger Panel, a Dollar General brand ambassador, plus a craft segment contributor for Great Day St. Louis KMOV Channel 4.

Erin was also named one of the Top 20 Pins on Pinterest in 2013.

I would LOVE it if you would follow my DIY journey. Please LIKE me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/howtonestforless or subscribe to my blog:
