who is the fashionable crafter?
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 and equally as inspired by my fashion idols Kate Spade and Coco Chanel (my decor consists of antlers and blush pink). Nothing ever leaves my Studio without me being 100% pleased with how it turned out. I'm constantly looking for new ideas and redecorating my own spaces. I'm a huge fan of Pinterest and tbh, I don't know what I did before it existed!
I love receiving custom orders and trying new things. Some of my best sellers were 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, pillows with words, doormats, 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 Studio, 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 and I look SO forward to creating something beautiful for you!
