I'm so excited to have Natalie from Take The Cannoli become Rustic Living's first giveaway. Beautiful, passionate, talented . . . this woman is amazing, and she's here to offer one lucky winner a special treat!
I’m Nat, the girl behind Take the Cannoli. I am twenty something (for just a little longer), wifey to Micah, mama to my two sweet babes; Elsie Pearl & Vernon Ribble, a Southern Californian girl, and a crafter of sorts. I am a lover of Jesus, coffee, all things vintage, the beach and pastries of course!
Everyday is a new day. Some days are fabulous and some require extra mascara to accentuate the only thing I have going for me when I’m still rockin' the leggings I slept in when my hubs returns home from work. Though I have no idea what each day will bring, I do know God is faithful and good.
Lamentations 3:22-23 says”Becauase of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are New Every Morning; great is Thy faithfulness”
And so I blog. About the everyday. The good, bad and sometimes ugly. You’ll find touches of crafts, fashion, DIY and if I’m feeling really spunky I may even toss in a recipe. Through blogging I have opened up about life as a stay-at-home mama (the joys and sorrows) and talk about both the struggles and triumphs I have gone through. This new year has already been amazing and I have been blessed by new friendships (like MIss Ashley) and opportunities through this blog. I have gained perspective on who I used to be, discovered who I am now, and glimpsed the woman I am becoming.
I also own a little shop filled mostly with hand -stitched lovelies a.k.a embroidered hoop art, which has kind of become my therapeutic outlet. The pieces in my collection are inspired by affirmations, scriptures, hymns and any other little things that bring me joy. My hope is that these hoops will be a blessing to others as they are displayed in homes and workspaces.
I invite you to visit my blog and share in my journey through faith, marriage, and motherhood!
How great is that?! Winner gets the adorable "Kiss Me" piece handmade by Natalie!
