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)

    Hi Natalie,
    I love your blog and blog layout! I am also using the grisalle theme and couldn’t figure out how to make the pages width larger? Currently my page is somewhat narrow looking. Could you please share how you made yours wider? I’d greatly appreciate it!

Tell me about it!
