My name is Amy and I create under the alias of RubyMoon. I’m starting this 2nd blog to showcase my artwork. I am an avid digiscrapper and artisan of all mediums. My other blog is about the family life, I decided I needed a blog about my interests too. Hopefully I can update it regularly.

A short bio about me… I am a SAHM or WAHM of 2 kids. Jace 1 and Rayna almost 3. I crave creativity! I lost my corporate job due to downsizing/merging when I was 5 months pregnant with Jace and I vowed never to go back to the corporate rat race. I went to college for fashion design and I want to use my degree for something somewhat meaningful.

As we speak my husband is building me a “studio.” I use that term very loosely lol! You see in my tiny house I don’t have a spare room, guest room, extra room, unused diningroom, storage room, large closet, loft, atic, guest house, boat house, pool house, garage, shed or any type of extra square footage for me to claim as my own. Maybe when I win the lottery! But for now I am claiming 1/3 of our basement family room/computer room/playroom combo that will be sectioned off for my use. Two large shelves are being built 4′ high and 2′ deep and 5.5′ long to span the back 1/3 of the room. The shelves will house the completely insane amout of toys that are currently taking over the house and they will also block off my dangerous supplies from my kids. I haven’t been taking time to create things for years now, as I always spend too much time dragging stuff out and cleaning up afterwards. Now I can leave stuff out and not have to worry about the kids eating my pastels or cutting fingers with the exacto knife.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and I hope to have something for you to look at next post!
