Hello, you. Welcome.

I’m Sonia Ruyts.  Writer, entrepreneur, and tattooed tv-loving mama of 2.

I am a former pastry chef turned stay at home mama turned creative entrepreneur.  In 2011 I took the leap into small business ownership and opened Stash, a local yarn shop  in Oregon.  

As an influencer in the creative community,  I love empowering others on their creative explorations. On this blog you will read about creativity, self-care, parenting, and a little bit of a lot of things from my real life

My wife and I live in Western Oregon with our two small children.  We are learning the ropes of this full life together, and enjoying the ups and downs of the everyday.  When I’m not working with my fellow creatives, I’m can be found in the tub reading, baking cookies, playing in the garden, wrangling cats, or daydreaming about my next adventure.
