About Us

I’m Sarah. Let’s be friends and craft together while we ooh and ahh over cute things we and others whip up.

I have a big personality but I’m short vertically challenged. See?

A Little About Me

  • There’s a lot of education behind these eyes… I have a couple of degrees in business, am a self-taught designer, and now know more about editing a video than I ever imagined.
  • Laughter is my love language. I still have my Texas twang and it makes me smile when it pops out unexpectedly.
  • I love popcorn – a Nicholas Sparks meets Shakespeare kind of love: beautiful and tragic. Haha
  • I am a creative gal. I get a new hobby every year to help keep me focused.
  • I curl my eyelashes even though I don’t wear make up everyday. My “pretend loves” are Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Who, and action movies.
  • I compartmentalize as easily as I breathe, so when others cry, I don’t. I’ll hold your hand while you have a good ugly cry, though. It’s my superpower.

Where You’ve Seen Us

Ruffles and Rain Boots has been featured all over the Internet throughout the years. A few favorite publishers who have loved and displayed my work:

  • Parenting Magazine
  • Better Homes and Gardens
  • Reader’s Digest
  • Red Tricycle

Where In the World Is…

We call Seattle our home now, but I’ve lived all over the country working for large, multi-national organizations. Currently, I’m working from the house on this site and others. I am so lucky to share a life with:

  • Jeff, the husband extraordinaire,
JOS photographers
  • Elise, the now 9-year-old who might be the only kid in the world who loves to eat her vegetables (and sneak marshmallow building supplies), and our newest addition, Gizmo, an adorable, fuzzy little Havanese pup.
Are You Eating Those

What I Do Here:

  • I serve up tutorials for easy crafts with a side of fun.
  • I love sharing things from around the web that inspire me or work me up into a creative frenzy.
  • You can be inspired, have a chuckle, and leave knowing I won’t stop by unannounced. I was raised in the South, we give ya’ notice.

Hi, I printed your free gnome pattern for felt gnomes using a 7" cone. but did not get the hat pattern. Would you mind sending it to me? I plan to make 24 gnomes for an Christmas advent swap I'm participating in on Instagram. Thank you very much. Patricia

Patricia, I cannot send them via email because the system adds a tag for each download. The felt gnomes pattern is free, so you can download it again two ways: 1) from your email confirmation and 2) by adding it to your cart and "buying" it again here.
