Home / About


My name is Ruth LovettSmith. This is my personal blog where I write about writing, blogging, art and design. On occasion, I write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into any one of these categories. You’ll find those posts under the heading Wanderlust.

I grew up in a small town in Maine and now live in a small town in Massachusetts.

I’ve lived in snowy New England my entire life and recently learned to downhill ski in my late 30′s. (Love it!)

I’m a mom to two crazy strawberry blond boys born seventeen months apart……………

The Boys

and two even crazier Wheaten Terriers (Maggie and Finley).

Maggie  Finley

I met my husband at 18, fell in love and we’ve been happily married (mostly) ever since.

I have a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and have a passion for all things DIY. I love to work with my hands, make things, read, learn new things and problem solve.

Currently I spend my days writing, designing, creating, sometimes gardening, hiking with the dogs, shuttling the boys around……..and I love it.

I love what I do and know how very lucky I am to be able to do it.

AND I’m so very grateful to you – my readers. I hope you find my posts entertaining and useful.

Thanks so much for stopping by.


PS You can also find me at Best Allergy Sites – a site I founded after discovering one of my sons had a life threatening food allergy. Or check out my art and design work at LovettSmith Design.
