    The Stork's Nest 7-Foot Lawn Stork
    With Personalized Keepsake Plaque

When our first son was born I thought it would be great to have a big stork announce the big news. My mom looked all around and couldn't find one anywhere. Later that year I was reading a parenting magazine and there was an article that featured a mom who started her own stork rental. That's when the light bulb went off! A stork rental would be the perfect opportunity for me. I have a creative background as a Graphic Designer and my husband does accounting. Between the two of us I knew we had the skills and motivation to do this. We've always been entrepreneurs at heart. I started researching stork rentals and designed my own pattern. My husband created the stork and I added my artistic touches. Starting from scratch was much harder than I had anticipated. There was so much to think about and so many details to     
work out. Legal issues, safety issues, business issues etc. We finally got The Stork's Nest off the ground and have been running full speed ever since.

My design background was a huge help. I was able to design my own stork, brochures, post cards, business cards, candy bar labels and website. The best moment came when our second son was born and we were able to have our very own stork for our front yard!

Now that we have been established for quite some time....and learned what to do and what not to do we are now ready to share our business with others. The motivation behind starting my own business was to be able to earn money from home while spending time with my children. That's when I decided that I wanted to do what I can to help other moms (and dads) start their own business. Franchises are overpriced and starting on your own can be too time and money consuming...not to mention the stress and the trial and error. We now offer business packages that make starting your own business easy and stress free.

The Stork's Nest offers a Do-It-Yourself package for the handyman (or women!) as well as 3, 6 and 10 stork packages. We usually recommend starting with 6 storks. It's a nice manageable number. Renting storks is easy to do and very rewarding. I love talking to happy customers who are experiencing the joy of a new family member. I also offer personalized candy bars and kisses to announce the arrival of a new baby.

I always have people say to me "I wish I would have thought of that!" and it makes me proud of what I've accomplished. I pride myself on my customer service and do what I can to make all my customers happy.
