First things first. Thank you everyone for your love and support yesterday. It is very much appreciated! Being featured on the Nate Berkus show was such an honor and privilege that I am truly grateful for. I could NEVER have pulled it off without the support and help of family and friends. Thank you so very much! (You can view the segment here in case you didn’t catch it.)
Secondly, some of you are new around here.
Hello new people!
Since you are new, and probably wondering who the heck I am, here’s a lil’ bit of info about yours truly.
This blog is all about art, DIY, photography… and me of course.
I studied photography in college. Whatever I do in life, I have always been, and always will be drawn to it.
I am much more comfortable behind a camera than in front of it. Very much.
I am thirty-one years old. Plus three.
I do not tan.
I like big hair.
I have four children, three of which have various degrees of disabilities. The fourth child is by far the hardest.
I got hair extensions two days before I filmed for the Nate Berkus Show. I am much better at styling them now, but the day of filming I looked like a middle-aged Texan cheerleader.
One of my hobby’s is buying antique post cards and mailing them back to the home they were originally sent to. I write a big romantic letter all about how that particular piece of mail belongs to that home, and ask that the recipient write me back and let me know it arrived safely. No one ever writes me back. It’s quite pathetic, but I keep doing it.
I die for Mac. (The computers. Not the makeup. No one can afford to be obsessed with both.)
I write ridiculously long run-on sentences that make my elder educated sister crazy.
I one day intend to start a club for people who eat apple fritters with melted butter on top. It will be exclusive.
I have twelve e-mail addresses. Consolidating scares the crap out of me.
I am a Netflix and Hulu addict. It’s bad folks.
I have nightmares that my husband sells all of the stuff I buy at yard sales, at his own yard sale.
I refer to my decor style as “really cool crap”.
I am a Mormon. I don’t believe in or practice polygamy, but would love a second pair of hands around here, thank you very much.
I love reading good trashy books written by Sophie Kinsella. (Maybe I shouldn’t have written this one right after expressing my religious beliefs.)
Sometimes I forget how old I am. Or how long I have been married. Or the name of my third born.
And last but not least… I post far more humorously inappropriate and random silliness on my facebook page.
Welcome to Natalme!
