Hi! I'm Ruth and I am the creative force behind Craft with Cartwright.
I am a qualified secondary school teacher, designer, illustrator, crafter and blogger. I am also currently a work at home mum to two boys.
I love to make things, share how to make things and am constantly thinking about what to make next.
I would love to make a living from my design work and am working hard on making that dream happen while I take a break from full time teaching.
My work has been featured in Making magazine, Craftseller, Cross stitch Crazy magazine and on BuzzFeed.
I would love you to take a look around my blog which revolves around my creative life. You can find recipes, free cross stitch patterns and keep up to date with the latest products in my shops.
Nominated for the Best blog 2015 and the Best Craft blog 2015.
