Welcome! I’m Ruth!

I believe that creatives can achieve financial freedom with their craft. I want to help you learn how to become successful, and do what you love.

On this website I share free tips, information, resources, and more. Whether you are experienced at your craft, or just starting out; my hope is that you come away from my site having learned something positive and new.


I started “creating” at a young age when I took my first private art lesson at 6 or 7 years old. Later I caught the writing bug when I was chosen to participate in a young writers program, for High School students, at Bates College. I went on to study Graphic Design, and graduated with a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I regularly write about business, art, crafting, design, DIY, writing, and blogging. I’m sometimes serious and sometimes snarky.

Currently I spend my days writing, designing, creating, and sometimes gardening (when my seasonal allergies are in check). I love what I do, and know how very lucky I am to be able to do it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Creating!
