About Colette

Welcome to Colette’s Cottage, my new website and blog!

I have been blogging for a few years now, mostly on my former blog “ewescrap” and on my mother’s site Allthingshomey.  I had hosted a scrapbook website for several years, and have been very active on Pinterest since it burst onto the scene.  More ecently, I was looking to start a fresh blog, to better reflect where I am now, and hopefully to be a little more personal.  I have a degree in Public Relations and Marketing and hope to use those talents to promote this and other etsy sites and blogs. I have been traveling ever since I can remember and hope to blog about some of our adventures along the way. While I am from Jacksonville, Florida, our family has lived mostly in Atlanta, Georgia and Christchurch, New Zealand.  I am writing this from near Christchurch, where my husband’s family settled back in the 1850’s, and where he has returned to help with the earthquake recovery and reconstruction.  We have three children, with two older boys in high school, and one daughter at intermediate/middle school.  I’m sure you will hear much more about them in the months to come.

If you would like to know anything else, please don’t hesitate to write.
