About Me

Hi! I'm Ashley, 33 from ohio-cleveland area. I have a 14 year old daughter, 9 yr old son and 3 year old bonus daughter(they have their own section below)! They are my entire world! I have a big family, 3 brothers and 2 sisters, 3 nieces and 2 nephews.

I'm not really artistic, but I'm very creative, and I have really cool ideas. But since I'm not artistic, I sometimes have a hard time translating those ideas to paper. But, since being here, I've found some really nifty tricks, ideas and techniques for making my crafting really pop!



  • ATCs!
  • Cool, unique ATC making supplies
  • book pages
  • unique, different, interesting ephemera
  • anything in a language other than english
  • hummingbirds, they remind me of my grandma.
  • anything vintage (either actual or vintage looking), I really like the look.
  • TIM HOLTZ products!! from inks to papers to stamps and everything in between!
  • I LOVE everything steampunk and fantasy
  • grunge style as well
  • zentangles, zendalas, new patterns, etc.
  • tattoos
  • I like dark art, art depicting death and such
  • I also love erotic art
  • nature is my jam and I love being outside, now that I don't have a black thumb anymore, I love flowers!
  • anything pagan, Wiccan or otherwise spiritual
  • pineapples! ;)

DISLIKES: Nothing right now. If I get anything I don't like I will find someone to pass it on to and it really is difficult to offend me

the boyfriend- Zakk

Zakk and I have been together for just over 2 years. He's a pretty awesome dude who loves me and all my weird and I love him and all his weird. Our weirds seem to compliment each other and I never feel judged for any of the weird or dark things I like! As a matter if fact, most of the weird or dark things I like, he likes too! He has opened up my world in so many ways and introduced me to so many new things. He's extremely creative and artistic in ALL THE WAYS! He is a tattoo artist, painter, leather worker, guitar player and crafter just to name a few. He likes a lot of the same artwork styles I like but in addition - mandalorian, grogu - skateboarding - tattoos - Subaru anything - sketch pads and pencils

Religion, beliefs, etc

I'm Pagan, on my way to my Wiccan journey. I was baptized catholic as an adult and while it was what I needed at the time, as I discovered new things about myself, I realized this wasn't something that would be for me forever. I discovered all of the beautiful glory of paganism and how little structure and rules there are which is perfect! Somewhere I get to decide what I believe in, study, praise and 'worship'!? Hecky hecky yeah yeah!

Favorite Books

Unfortunately, with everything going on in my life right now, I don't have time to sit down and read books right now. I've been listening to audio books mostly about parenting, the things my daughter is going through and how to help them, and pagan and Wiccan books, mostly about crystals, Chakra and other subjects in that area. I did recently purchase a book about working with the fae that I'm excited to get into.

Favorite Crafts

I like crafts where I can be as creative as possible. I LOVE making ATCs and APCs and Zentangles, I love, love, love making them. They help calm me and relax me, and crafting in general helps me find my happy. I pretty much love any kind of papercrafting, the more different the better. I have beginners sewing skills and no sewing machine, so I don't do much of that. Never could quite get the hang of crocheting and knitting, no matter how many times my grandma tried teaching me. I love doing anything with my daughter, like cards, coloring, or any other fun projects I can find.

Comment: Thanks Ashley for this wonderful zine as well as the zentangle tiles and ATC tiles too! Your instructions were great and I am going to add them to my other ones. I have had the same problem when I tried to copy a zine with so much black...it used up the whole cartridge when I tried it. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Thank you Sherry for the rating, heart and kind compliments! I wasted so much ink trying to print copies and they didn't even come out good! I'm glad I made two from scratch, it got me the practice for making them, since these were my first!! Happy swapping(!

Response: Thank you for the rating and nice compliment, these were the first ones I've ever made!
