About me...

I am sitting here in my home office, flying around the world on a magic carpet ride (see my post about One World One Heart). I am amazed by all the wonderful blogs and the intriguing artistry of so many people. My blog began a couple of years ago as I discovered a few blogs that drew me in and as I visited more and more, I was hooked. I love the little peek into the lives of bloggers and I am so happy to learn and grow from the experience. With all the new folks visiting Lulu's Cottage, I thought a quick introduction was in order.

I live in a rural area of Northern California, in the mountains. I was always a City Girl and now I can honestly say that I love the country way of life. I'm a happily married mother of 3 grown kids and 2 beautiful granddaughters. I am truly blessed to be able to work from home with my own business, Isagenix. It's a program of health and nutritional cleansing that changed my life (literally) 6 years ago. (you can read my story by clicking on the box "myskinnystory" on the upper left of my blog) And, I am able to share this business with others who would also benefit from a home based business. In fact, I met my dear dear friend and business partner Emily from my blog. (Hi Emily...I appreciate YOU and our friendship!)

I have 2 doggies and 3 kitties who sometimes find their way into Lulus Cottage. Sewing is my first passion in the crafting world. I love to make garments to wear. Most of my creations end up in the "reject pile", but I can't stop myself! Sometimes I say that I have Crafting Attention Disorder. I see something wonderful and I immediately want to make it! So, add to sewing: beading and all things jewelry making, knitting, crochet and home decorating.

My little blog is a place to share what I'm excited about in the moment. Right now, I am completely consumed by being in a band. This is a long story...but here I am, in a Rock N Roll band. It sounds crazy just telling you about it. I love it and it has been an incredible journey of personal growth. One year ago, I wouldn't even sing in the shower. Now I'm singing into a microphone, is that crazy or what?

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you again and call you friend.
