Welcome to my website, blog, and shop. My name is Ruth LovettSmith and I am a freelance writer, blogger, artist, and designer. 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 in high school. 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.

A Little Bit More About Me:
- For as long as I can remember I’ve been told that I talk a lot, and sometimes over share. This often spills into my writing, therefore I have a blog section subtitled Life Uncensored. This is where I share personal stories about my life in the country. You’ll learn about what I’m reading, what annoys me, and you may pick up some gardening, cooking, and travel tips along the way.
- My oldest son has life threatening food allergies. To educate myself, and others, I spent 5+ years growing a food allergy directory and blog, and volunteering on the board of a national food allergy non-profit. Those early mom years taught me how to advocate for my son, and run a blogging business. In 2015 I passed on the torch, and sold my blog to another food allergy mom.
- Speaking of being a mom; I’m a Gen Xer raising two, nearly grown and flown, strawberry blond, Gen Z boys born 17th months apart.……………
and two even crazier Wheaten Terriers (Finley and Maggie).
- I’m super fascinated by human behavior, the brain, and why people do the (sometimes stupid) things they do.
Currently I spend my days writing, designing, creating, sometimes gardening (when my seasonal allergies are in check), hiking with the dogs……..and I love it!
I love what I do and know how very lucky I am to be able to do it.
