About Me

Hi there! I'm Ashton. I am a CPA by day, and a crafter by night! I love sending and receiving mail.

I am a cat-lover with one adopted fur baby named Lu. An avid indie-comic reader and a lover of short stories residing outside of Cleveland, Ohio.

Favorite Crafts

Collages, upcycling, mod-podge, working on my lettering skills.

Favorite Movies

Rom-coms, Docs, Indie.

A few I love right now (and always): - Ghost World - Singles (90's Seattle, what could be better?!) - You've Got Mail - When Harry Met Sally

Favorite Teas

Anything green, floral notes, minty-fresh, Earl Gray.

Favorite Music

...Call it "weird elevator music". I'm very into instrumental hip-hop and jazz lately.

I also love Classic Rock and Indie.

Stones > Beatles, if I am choosing for the rest of my life. I appreciate the Beatles and their contributions to music but I jam so hard to the Rolling Stones.

The most recent records I've purchased are: Paul Simon "There Goes Rhymin' Simon", TV Girl "Who Really Cares", and The Kinks "The File Series".

Comment: thanks for the nice selection. Florida is beautiful at Christmas time. They do decorate the Palm trees, but where I live I also have pine trees, not like the wonderfully smelly ones in the North. I also don't freeze my butt when I decorate.

bluecrayons rated for Handmade envelope swap on Aug 24, 2016
Comment: received on 8-19. 2 weeks late. the hand made envie she mailed in was not sealed anywhere. received wide open and only 2 envies in it, i have messaged her since the 19th asking her for a email to show her photos of this and she refuses. ** rating a 3 as it was way late and didnt include the required 4 envies.**
Response: Bluecrayons - I think you mislead any readers of this rating. You messaged me and I have replied numerous times. Your messages have not included any detail as to the issue with the swap received. Rather, they have been cryptic in nature. I am very sorry that the swap came to you opened. I had glued the envelope closed. I will seek to use more permanent glue in the future. There were 4 envelopes within the swap I sent, it is a shame they did not make it to you. Further, the swap deadline was on 8-5. This means it was required to be in the post by that date, not received by you on that date. Meaning, the item was not two weeks late. Perhaps, if you were more forthcoming with information within your messages to me, and a bit nicer, I would care to provide my email address to you. I protest your assertion that the swap was weeks late and wish you a happy day. Thanks - Ashton
Comment: Loved your letter have replied this weekend .
Response: Looking forward to reading it! :)
