About Me


Hello!  My name is Erika Rueland and I am SO happy you stopped by!

I live in north east South Dakota.  That’s correct.  South Dakota.  You probably haven’t heard of it since third grade geography but it is a state and there are a few humans crazy enough to brave the -20 degree winters.  Believe me, it wasn’t my choice.  It was my ancestors.  Those Norwegians were tough!

I am a wife, mother of two, and full time working woman, who absolutely loves being creative in a variety of mediums.

My goal is to use this blog to encourage others to take care of themselves while also taking time to be creative.

I sincerely hope that I add value to your day!  That is why I don’t have commercials on my site.  If you’d like to support me directly, click on the Dontate button at the top of the page.

Bountiful blessings!
