One-Line Bio

Making life better, one Small Thing at a time.


I'm Rachel Anne Ridge and I'd like to welcome you to Home Sanctuary! "Home Sanctuary" sums up a lot of what my life is about. As a wife and mom, I'm always looking for ways to make our home life a refuge and place of grace for the ones I love most. I post daily Small Things that you can do along with me and the Company Girls, which help create a sense of sanctuary in this busy world. Each activity takes just a few minutes, but can have big impact on your home. Plus, we have a lot of fun along the way! I hope you'll join us.

As a professional artist and muralist, I spend much of my days helping others create personal spaces for their own loved ones. I've found that everyone needs a place they feel good about and love to come home to.

I've been married 25 years to Tom, and I'm the mother of three: Elle (daughter age 22, and married), Em (daughter age 20, in college), and G.T., (son age 14 and into hockey and airplanes). I recently found out that I am expecting a baby (!) in August.

Pet menagerie includes an old but dear yellow lab, 2 cats and a stray donkey named Flash.

Update: the 2 cats have disappeared, but have been replaced by marauding racoons and possums, who live off our dog food.
