Meet our blogger of the month, Ruth from Craft With Cartwright. Her blog is exceptional. She is a textiles teacher and her ideas and inspiration are unlike others you find on the internet. She is honest, has unique blog posts that make you think and has definitely inspired The Baby Spot. We had to share her blog with all of you.

Tell us what made you want to blog?

I started blogging when I was on maternity leave with my first. It was a way of me sharing my crafts and keeping myself sane. It was rubbish in the beginning, it’s evolved and improved (I hope) along the way

What is your blog about?

I’m Ruth a 37 year old work from home mum. I have two lovely boys who keep me very busy. I was formerly a secondary school Textiles and Catering teacher, now I blog for fun and work as a freelance designer. My blog www.craftwithcartwright.co.uk is a great big mash up of all these things. Design work, crafts, cookery, parenting and lifestyle.

Where do you see your blog in five years?

Migrate to my own website rather than using blogger as the template. Work with some more brands and properly monetise my blog. Work with other bloggers, I really enjoy guest posting and helping out.  Collaborating is much better than competing
