Elle is a creative-hearted ginger with a poetic soul. Growing up around the world, books were both her home and her escape. Writing a book of her own has been a dream of hers since she was a child, and today you hold her dream in your hands. Through life’s dark days, Elle learned to look for God’s goodness in the simple things and to cultivate beauty all around her. Now Elle’s passion is to make a haven of beauty with her creations and share a bit of hope and happiness with the world. Elle lives in Missouri with her family and her precious dog, Rosie. From there, she runs her online arts and crafts business, Elle’s Cottage, which you can find at ellescottage.com.
