My Story

She Is Above Rubies! She Makes

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her worth is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10

Hello, my name is Megan Elizabeth and I want to thank you for being here with me today!!!

It truly is an honor to spend time with you over the inter-webs and share encouragement, inspiration and life with you! The above verse is my hearts desire since I was a little girl…I truly want to seek to be a Proverbs 31 woman, and it is the daily struggle of my life. Things certainly have not been perfect, but, I will tell you, God is so good to me and has blessed me with so many amazing things! The greatest desire I have is that I can encourage you in just some small ways, all while having a blast enjoying our crafting and day to day life together!!!

Above being a lifestyle blogger, I am first and foremost Mommy to three amazing blessings…Bensen, Jenavieve and Gradyn. (I’m sure you hear a lot about them they are the best!)  I’m a homeschool Mom, a coffee addict, and On Air Presentation Host, lipgloss lover and crazy obsessed with fun singing! was started as a simple hobby site to help me with my postpartum depression after having Jenavieve in 2008. However, not gonna lie, the entrepreneurial spirit in me along with the knowledge and skills had in marketing and online development, quickly grew ARS from a simple outlet for me, into a full blown business with hundreds of thousands views, subscribers, friends and more!  The Cricut Educational DVDS and Cricut Cutting Guide has been a joyous journey for me since the beginning!  I have grown much since the start of Above Rubies Studio and I’m blessed and thankful to now be able to share my first love of hair, makeup and beauty and bring that to you as of 2016 – making a place for every women to feel beautiful inside and out in all areas of our busy lifestyles.

In early 2017 Above Rubies Studio launched a brand new Crafting Membership Community called SheMakes Club... this club is an amazing fun membership of heart and creativity to tell your story in a deep and meaningful way and be encouraged to grow towards the future you desire! With monthly Workshops, Giveaways, Discounts and more - is the place to be!

I have taken my love for educating others, encouraging and inspiring their spirits over to my new site where I share my experience, skills, secrets to my success and more to help others who want to grow their own blogs, businesses or just reach life goals in a fun and easy way! We like to show you how to have Business. Life. Balance. The Way You Want It! #BizLifeBalance

Personal Loves & Life

Besides scrapbooking, I love teaching (homeschooling) and making memories with my kids, experiencing life WITH them is truly my greatest gift and honor!! I feel so blessed. I am totally coffee obsessed!  I love guest hosting on QVC and defintely enjoy a Sushi night out!  I also love shopping, singing at the top of my lungs (especially along with Donny Osmond 🙂 ), and a wonderful Starbucks Latte while walking around Target or literally any craft store. 🙂  I am a cold weather girl to be honest, but I love a nice relaxing week by the water without a doubt!  My hearts dream is to still make it happen and get a Hot Tub for my home! 😉
