Susan from Must Love Junk, and myself wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before. So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs. You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Susan's and my blog.
|Ana A Petite Cottage|
First and foremost I would like to thank Kris for the honor of "spotlighting" little ol' me in this week's Saturday Spotlights. Thank you Ms. Kris, it is truly an honor.
So here we go...
My name is Ana and I blog over at A Petite Cottage. I am currently majoring in domestic engineering and minoring as a Roadside Acquisition Specialist at the University of Life...Hee, Hee, Hee.
Cookie, our petite, 14 year old fur baby. She's soooo cute, isn't she?
Anyway, we all share our very petite but very comfy and full of love cottage overlooking the bay. Over the years it has under gone many transformations...transforming from a simple little house to our Cottage Sweet Cottage.

I am truly the happiest when I am with my family and when I am being creative and/or creating. I have a Fashion Design and Merchandise degree from FCC, so I guess you can say design has always been in my blood. Although I am a stay at home mom and wife...by choice I may add...I can still put into practice a lot of what I learned in my own home. I love to decorate and redecorate our home. There is truly nothing better than watching my family's expressions when they walk into a newly reorganized and redecorated room.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and even though my condition prevents me a majority of the time from doing as much as I was able to do before, it hasn't stopped me completely. I love creating, decorating, sewing, crocheting and crafting way too much to let it stop me...I've just had to learned to rely more on God, less on me and to work around it.
Some of my other loves include blogging, of course, thrift shopping and stopping at yard sales...Ooh, love the thrill of the hunt. I love, love, love Mexican food, the spicier the better, I always say :-) And on my down time I love to sit and watch television with my hubby. Criminal investigation/Detective and Sci Fi shows are our favorites. But above all and over anything else I love, love, love being a Wife, Mother and a Child of God.
As I close off, I would like to say that I have been blogging for 5 years and the friends I have made along the way have brought so much joy to my life. Never in a million years did I ever think I would have met so many kindred spirits, kind, caring supportive souls who I feel very blessed to be able to call friends.
Thank you all for stopping by and thank you again Kris for this opportunity.
Wishing everyone a wonderfully creative day.
Hugs and Kisses,
Thank you Ana. I love your blog and was so excited you said yes to sharing yourself with all of us. It was fun to get to know you better. Your hubby, daughter and fur baby family are adorable. Love the self portrait you did. It is beautiful.
Now that you have gotten to know Ana please hope over to Susan's blog and meet another wonderful blogger Cindy from Cynthia Lee Designs. Enjoy the week end.
