Hi there! I’m Ashley Wade, and I’m the creative/crafter over here at the fashionable crafter in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I make country and rustic décor, as well as classic and girlie designs. I am inspired by nature (where are my fellow antler lovers at?!) and equally as inspired by my fashion idols Kate Spade and Coco Chanel. All of my products are things I want in my own home someday and nothing ever leaves my craft room without me being 100% pleased with how it turned out.
Although I create a lot of generic items, I love receiving custom orders and trying new things. Some of my best sellers were just created on a whim as a custom order and the rest, as they say, is history.
I had always known I wanted to own my own business; so a couple years after graduating with my BBA from the University of New Brunswick I did just that. My first Christmas I specialized in wreaths, and the following year I added mugs and plates with quotes and words on them to my product line. This past year, I have begun making wood signs, glasses with vinyl on them, and even cake toppers!
I absolutely love how diverse the fashionable crafter is becoming and I’m so grateful and blessed with how much support I am getting from my beautiful customers. I am truly the happiest when I’m fulfilling orders in my craft room, with country music playing and my craft buddy (my Golden Retriever) Hunter, by my side.
If you have an idea or a solid plan of something you want me to make for you, get in touch with me via email, inbox, text, or phone. I look SO forward to creating something beautiful for you!
