Meet a Community Member ~ Natalie Zanatta
Prior to being a mom & blogger, Natalie Zanatta was a behavioral therapist for at-risk children. Being a behavioral therapist made her a more compassionate person. It taught her how important it is to encourage a healthy emotional well-being in our kids.
How did Natalie become a blogger from there? She spent a lifetime of being malnourished with chronic pain. Over 4 years ago when her middle son was 6 mos. old, they learned he had issues with gluten. Suddenly the puzzle pieces to Natalie’s issues started falling into place. Great Contradictions was born! Great Contradictions is meant to encourage others to live happy, healthy lives no matter what their circumstances are. Natalie helps to expand resources through gluten free and sneaky recipes, reviews/giveaways, as well as exploring creative outlets.
What has been your favorite campaign with Social Fabric?
There have been so many campaigns that I have been able to be a part of, thanks to Social Fabric. However, my current favorite is the Eileen Fisher campaign. I enjoy challenging myself creatively, and fashion is a great way to do that!
What do you enjoy most about the Social Fabric Community?
Hands down what I enjoy most about the Social Fabric Community is the amazing people that make the community what it is. There are so many inspiring members that make me want to be a better blogger. While I have never met most of the members in real life, I love how it feels like I have, due to the amount of personal and professional support that so many members offer the community.
Please share a link from a campaign you have participated in so we can all go check it out!

Any fun or interesting facts about yourself or your blog that you would like to share with the world?
I enjoy upcycling and “functional art,” such as I love to see what I can create with discarded drawers, windows, etc… Also, I am obsessed with photography. It is rare to find me without my camera. There is just such beauty in the world that I want to see & share it all!
If you were sent to a deserted island with one other person, who would it be and what 3 things would you bring with you?
Hmmm…If I were sent to a deserted island, I would take my husband since he likes to remind me to relax. 3 things I would bring: 1) one of my comfy wrap sweaters, 2) actual book(s), 3) solar-powered lighting.
