About Ruth Ann


Ruth Ann Swansburg

Founder, Writer, Speaker & Promoter of Atlantic Canada

I am a wife of 20 years, a mom of 2 boys, have a love of paper crafting & photography, a marketing wannabee, and an avid promoter of supporting businesses in Atlantic Canada.

My name’s Ruth Ann, the voice and creator of this community. With my family of 4 +1, husband Doug, and two boys (a 15 yr old and 5 yr old) and our pup Bo, we share our adventures exploring where we live, through road trips, beach exploring and daily expeditions.
I am a true believer in sharing the reality just outside the perfectly cropped photo! You know exactly what I mean, we all have piles of papers, dirty laundry and toys left out, or some variation of that “clutter” or “mess” or perhaps the better term is, “reality”! I am open about my struggles with anxiety, finding balance, getting healthy, and pretty much everything. The reason I started my blog and this page has always been to share what I am doing in hopes it will help just one other person, who may need to hear what I am going through and not feel alone, or may need help planning meals, or simple recipes, or is looking for a fun and frugal vacation idea for their family...the list goes on. The point is, I try to share what I feel may be helpful to someone reading.
I enjoy speaking at events and teaching seminars, presenting many topics from being your authentic self, how to meal plan, to a 10 week “Food For Thought” program on feeding your family healthy choices on a tight budget. I love the challenge of creating unique presentations for new audiences.

Now is the chance, with re-branding and expanding the site in 2016, to get to know who the lady is behind the Moncton Coupon Lady. Before becoming a blogger, I worked as a graphic designer and freelance photographer. Working mainly as a graphic designer in Saint John prior to moving to Moncton and becoming a work at home mom. Once a “work at home mom” I spent several years creating memory books and scrapbook pages for buyers all around the world through my eBay store. In addition to creating scrapbooks, I also spent time capturing memories for families in the form of photographs. Although I do not do either of these as a business currently, I love anything creative and look forward to sharing what I am working on with you, right here on Everything Unscripted.

As a mom I feel privileged to have my loving husband and two boys. They are 10 years apart (not by choice, as we struggled to have our second), and I am now 43 and chasing an almost 5 yr old!

It’s been an adventure, it’s been very different than I imagined, and life has been pretty great so far! Is life ever really what we “planned”? Life’s Unscripted and very rarely an image of what we thought it would be when we were kids, or even young adults…join me in realizing the greatness of a life unscripted here at Everything Unscripted. Your book is unwritten, so make every minute count.

“Life is 10 percent what you make it, and 90 percent how you take it.”
~ Irving Berlin
