An Award and Some Updates

by Natasha

Arte y Pico AwardTo start off, I would like to thank my buddy Zenobia for nominating my site for the
Arte y Pico Award. There are some rules that I’m supposed to follow, where I list other bloggers I want to give the award to, and they’re supposed to do the same, blah blah. Z is going to kill me for saying this, but doesn’t that sound like too much work? Instead, I would like to declare that all the folks on my Favorites list get an award because they’re cool. Yeah, I know I’m changing the rules, but this is Natasha’s World and I can do that. Congrats everyone!!

(Disclaimer: This new declaration is not applicable outside of Any attempts to use this declaration is done at your own risk.)


I promise you there is a method to my madness. I know it may appear that I haven’t been updating this blog often, but it is all an illusion. You are in a dream state, and things are not as they seem…

Ok, to be real, I needed to take a brief hiatus from this site. Before I go any further, I would like to take a few seconds to give my blog a quick hug for neglecting it for the past couple of weeks:


As I was saying, I was dealing with some serious designer block issues (amongst other things), to the point where I was considering going back to farming. If you’re confused as to what farming has to do with anything, check out my Tagged video for more info.

Anyhow, after months of staring at a blank Photoshop canvas, I was starting to get desperate. I work as an HTML Developer who also needs to be able to design. No Design could mean No Pay. The moment that I decided that I would do anything to get my creative juices flowing again, God stepped in and I recieved an email from Shawn Casey regarding Justin Blake’s Manifestation Meditation Tool. At first it flipped me out a bit because he started talking about how it could be alien technology. But then I was like, “Natasha, who are you kidding? Aren’t you the same one that believes in the possibility that humans may be half monkey, half alien? Pulease!” Yeah, I know….

So out of desperation and the fact that it comes with a 6 month money back guarantee, I decided to give Manifestation Meditation a shot. The experience was very relaxing and I fell asleep. After I woke up, I felt rested but wasn’t sure if it worked. I then sat in front of my computer and started up Photoshop…

Would you believe me if I told you that the same night I was able to create a new header and template for my site? It was the most progress I’ve had in months. Maybe it was a placebo affect, but who cares… something worked!! I can’t wait to try it out on some other stuff to see what happens. If you want more information, click here. If you should decide to try it, please let me know your results.

Lastly, I haven’t abandoned my weight loss efforts. I have been in a secret little competition that I will write about more in future post. Cool things are happening behind the scenes, and a new layout is finally under way. Stay tuned and have a blessed day!

*sigh* Is there REALLY anything I can say? I’ll save this comment for our next verbal debate. 🙂

Hi Natasha,

I’m so glad I have you in my reader. I just found out I got an award. 🙂
Yipee! Yipee! Yipee!

It sounds like you’re slowly getting back on track. That Manifestation Meditation seems to have done the trick.

I’ll be checking in with you again soon.

Again, thanks for the award. I feel honored.
