Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Natasha Storm: I’m a marketer by day, aspiring home cook by night – and this is my little digital space to share my creations. I’m based in Cape Town, South Africa, and I like to spend my free time creating delicious food – cooking or baking up a storm (see what I did there?).
Creation doesn’t stop in the kitchen, I love graphic design and all aspects of it. From print design to web, to scrap booking and making homemade gifts – creativity is one of my favourite parts of me, and I’d like to share it with you!
I hope you enjoy reading my blog, and that it inspires your own culinary and creative adventures! Please do stay in touch by commenting, I’d love to hear from you.
When Natasha asked if I would contribute to Storm Creates I have to admit I did a tiny happy dance in my head. Having had the absolute pleasure of working with her before, I jumped at the chance to share my ever-so- very-unimpressive DIY and décor knowledge. Like Natasha I currently work in marketing and spend my free time dreaming of French armoires, queen anne legs and chippy cabinets. Unfortunately my French shabby chic taste is unsurprisingly not very wallet-friendly. Having purchased our first home – a rather large, rather old and rather intimidating renovation project – 2 years ago, I realised that the only way I would get the look I wanted was if I transformed into a sawdust covered, paint splattered DIY guru. And so I have pinterested, googled and workshopped every waking moment to learn how to paint, embellish, wax, drill and even saw (under the guided supervision of my handy hubby).
I am by no means qualified, professional or even all that skilled on the handywoman front, but I am not short on passion! With a love for all things slightly tarnished, lovingly used and imperfectly perfect I gravitate to anything that resembles vintage. I am, however, not a purist and although I love items with a beautiful story, I am not averse to transforming a mass-produced unoriginal into a wannabe vintage beauty. I believe that when you buy (or make) something for your home all you should care about is whether it makes you happy. So here’s what makes me happy – I hope you love it as much as I do.
