Hi, Everyone! Welcome to Cooking Up Cottage, I’m so glad you stopped by! I started this blog as a way to share my recipes, projects, and ideas. My name is Lisa, and I was born, raised, and currently live in the Midwest. I have a BA degree in art with an emphasis in both graphic design and photography. I have worked in sales, in a professional dark room, as a graphic designer, nine years as a florist, and now I currently work in retail customer service. I live in a cottagey bungalow along with my husband, daughter, a cat named Mr. Big, and a guinea pig named Snowdrop. I love cooking, baking, gardening, art and art history, decorating, and crafting. I hope you find something that interests you here at Cooking Up Cottage, and I hope that it inspires you to be creative yourself today! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
