Hi, I'm Natalie, and I'm so glad you're here! Welcome. This blog is a space where I record and share snippets of inspiration, DIY crafts, my art and work projects, home design, vintage finds and my day-to-day happenings -- a place where I can be creative and share my ventures. Thank you so much for visiting!

I am a full-time artist/designer (and stay-at-home mama!). I love to create, and I've always had a special place in my heart for snail mail. I combined these two passions in 2010 and opened Natty Michelle Paperie, my stationery shop where I sell my original artwork, handmade notecards, invitations and other wonderful whimsies. I spend my days drawing, painting and designing, and I feel so thankful to have a job I love so much!

I'm married to my sweet husband, James. Not long after we tied the knot, we traded city life in Atlanta for Athens, Georgia -- a hip town known for its music, art and food that's also home to our alma mater, University of Georgia. And after over two years of struggling with infertility, we welcomed our first child last December -- a little boy we named Archer (or "Archie" for short). I love watching Woody Allen movies, listening to John Denver, and I never miss an opportunity to thrift. I am constantly moving furniture around banging new holes in walls cluttering shelves dreaming up new ways to decorate the cozy cottage we call home.

And of course, all my friends call me Natty, so now you can, too!

Thanks again for visiting, and I hope you'll stay around for a little while and follow along. Enjoy, and if you'd like, give me a buzz! I'd love to hear from you.
