Meet Ruth

Hi there!  I am Ruth, the lady behind all that is AddyLou Creates.

AddyLou Creates was born out of the need to create. I love all things artsy, handmade, and hand-crafted. My shop came about after needing an outlet while being a stay-at-home mom of five rambunctious kiddos. At first it was something that was done as a way to find an identity outside of being “mom.” Now it comes from a desire to create well-made items that not only serve a practical purpose, but are beautiful accessories for your child and home.

In my past life I was landscape designer with a degree from Purdue University in Landscape Design and Horticulture. When I’m not sewing up a storm creating new product, I am outside gardening with my husband, tending to chickens, baking or enjoying the chaos of the mom life.
