It’s been kind of quiet here at Momma Findings. Tuesday was my first day back to a full time blogging schedule, after the craziness of the Holiday. Wow. It went by fast this year. Did you enjoy every minute of it? There were a few breakdowns with the kids being cooped up inside, but, overall, I had a great Holiday and feel downright encouraged for the New Year.
So, where have I been? What’s been up? Although, I went days without posting, I was, indeed, writing daily. This year started off pretty exciting, if I don’t say so myself. First of all, I’ve somehow morphed into my childhood self…. and I kinda like it.
This week, you can find two of my posts Shaping Our Daughter’s Perception of Beauty and a step-by-step tutorial for the Creativity for Kids Do Art Petite Painting Set. I was pretty excited to be chosen among all the awesome bloggers that make up the Creativity Club Bloggers, but the part that I found most fun? Seeing our pictures, as our teeny tiny blogger selves in one creative space online. Look at sweet Ana from Bonggamom Finds. She would have TOTALLY been my best friend in Elementary. What do you think of my childhood picture? Look like me?
Behind the Blog Scene is now LIVE:
I mentioned, a million years ago, that I was working on a new blog. It would be simple. It would be me. It would take all of what’s left of me, all that you don’t see here is.. well.. there. BehindtheBlogScene.com is now LIVE folks. It’s not fancy. It’s not professionally designed. Heck, it still didn’t give me the courage to use WordPress. When I’m used to something I stick with it. So, it’s again a Blogger platform based blog, however, it’s my sanctuary for now. My first post was called The Audition. It took me back to my days of High School, where I, intentionally, plucked myself out of the social scene my Senior year, all because of the feeling that nobody understood me… or rather nobody stood for anything and I was sick of it. In fact, I felt like I needed to find myself. I needed more. That’s how I feel now and that’s how the launch of Behind the Blog Scene began.
H-E-B Beauty Blogger:
As a young girl, I looked up to, both, my Sister and my Aunt. My Aunt was, actually, more like a cousin because she was so young. I’d watch them put their make-up on, listen to them talk about boys, and take notes on all the clothes they thought were cool. I wanted to be just like them.
The day they decided to play a practical joke on me. They were putting on make-up and I so, desperately, wanted to try it. I may have been about 7-yrs-old at the time, give or take 2 years. So, they told me to close my eyes and they put eyeshadow on my face. After they were done, I thought I was just beautiful as beautiful can be. I ran to my Mom to show her. She was mad…….. way mad.
It wasn’t eyeshadow. It was nail polish. On my eyelids.
I’m 29-yrs-old now and nowhere near as scarred as I thought I’d be from that incident. In fact, I think it helped me grow into the woman I am today. All that to say, that I’m elated to be chosen as 1 of the 10 Beauty Bloggers for H-E-B. For the next 10 months, we’ll be reviewing and giving away the Beauty Pick of the Month! Long way from the stupid girl with the nail polish on my eyelids, huh?
The first few days of 2011 have morphed me back into my childhood self. From seeing my Elementary picture at the Creativity for Kids Blog, to the flashback that started Behind The Blog Scene, and right back to memories of a little girl itching to be beautiful all to become a Beauty Blogger for H-E-B. It’s brought me to a place online, that I’m proud of and excited about.
