My name is Ashley McDonald. I am a wife, mother, graphic designer, and crafter. I graduated with an Associates in Graphic and Web Design in 2013. Right after finishing, I landed a job in the field of indie game design. I created everything from 3D renders to stories and GUI. Along the way, I gathered skills in project management and advertising. After years of saying I am going to build an Etsy shop and share things that I am most passionate about, I finally took the plunge near the end of 2017. Since then I have expanded and opened up shops on several different platforms!
When I first began selling on Etsy, I knew that I wanted to create something. I started selling vinyl graphics and I tried hard to find the designs that I loved but it was hard to find ones that I was just completely in love with. Since I had my degree, I figured – I can make my own. Thus, the SVG side of my studio was born! I know how important it is that your cut files are easy to use. I hope that you enjoy my style of creating. I look forward to becoming your creative bestie!
When I am not pouring my heart into my work, I am usually spending it with my family. We love watching movies and going on adventures.
Although they may not put the pencil to paper so to speak, these guys drive everything that I do in my business. From the best business advice and encouraging words from my husband Josh, to really telling me what’s “cool” from my tiny creatives, Inarah and William, I could not do my business with out these three. I am so blessed to have such an awesome support team.
When I first began selling on Etsy, I knew that I wanted to create something so when my sister-in-law / best friend told me that there was a local discount store selling the Cricut Machine, I knew that I wanted it. I began selling cute vinyl decals and craft files. After a few months, I realized that I really enjoyed helping people.
Using my graphic design degree and running my own small business, I am able to create so much more for my customers than just “a window sticker”. I understand the love that you have for your business. When you work with me, your business is just as important to me as it is to you. I love being able to take those pencil sketches from a lunch outing and turn it into something magical for your small business. From fulfilling boutique whole shirt orders to creating mailing cards, I am here for you!
