Hi. I’m Natalie and I believe that everything starts with an idea. Which is good because… I have tons of them. On my blog you can find everything from recipes to just plain ol’ adventures. I am always on the lookout for things I love.
Blackbird Ideas has been a huge motivator to cook, paint, clean, and try new things. I was unaware of the benefits of blogging when I first began and I have been so thrilled and flattered that friends and strangers alike read my ideas. If you are thinking of starting a blog, I HIGHLY recommend it.
I started this blog one day when I was writing papers for my Master’s degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy and I thought that blogging would be more fun. It was. I have since completed Graduate School and continue to teach full time, with my blog being a part-time hobby.
With a little help from Stellar (my lab mix), Chum (my yellow lab), John (my new husband), and tons of friends and family (mainly my adorable nephew), I have come up with some interesting, and maybe a few not interesting, ideas.
Having fun in (and out of) the kitchen,
(and Chum and Stellar and John)
