Hi! My name is Ashlee, and I am the self taught graphic designer/blogger behind MishMash by Ash! I am a stay at home mom from Alberta, Canada. I have three boys; J is 4, O is 2 and E is almost 6 months! They keep me ridiculously busy! They never… stop… talking…… I’ve been married to my amazing and supportive husband for almost 6 years now, but we have been together for over 11 years! We LOVE to travel and haven’t let having kids get in the way of our shared passion. We always have a plan for a trip in the works, our favourite holidays have been trips to Disneyland and Disneyworld! We recently took all three kids to Disneyland and, although absolutely exhausting, it was fun and the looks on the 2 older boy’s faces when they got to meet the characters made the trip totally worth it! They still believe that “Pooh Bear” and “Mickey Mouse” live in Disneyland! I love their innocence.
I used to work in the oil and gas industry before having kids, and came to miss the structure, routine and work life associated with that, as many stay at home moms I know go through. I decided to open my own Etsy shop and now a blog, to give me an outlet to be creative and a way to “escape” the craziness I call life! I mainly work with Photoshop Elements because it was very affordable to purchase and is very user friendly. I can use it to edit photos, as well as to create digital art pieces. My main camera of choice now a days is my Canon Rebel T3i. Once again, it was affordable and very user friendly. Getting an idea of what floats my boat? Affordable and user friendly things! Yay!
My plan with this blog is to offer you free downloadable printables ranging from wall art to party decor! You can use your home printer to print them off, but I always suggest (unless you have an amazing home printer) using a copy shop to print on cardstock paper to to get the best results. Staples is just an example of a place where you can upload your files online and pick up your item in store when it’s convenient for you. That’s what I do, and the quality is amazing. One day I’ll have a top of the line home printer!
I will also scour the web for other digital artists who offer free digital printables, digital scrapbook paper, clip art, fonts, ect. and pass on their links for you to go check out!
I am thrilled that you have found my little blog in that big blogging universe out there, and I hope you find something you like. Please stay awhile, download a free printable, and leave a comment! I am open to suggestions on free printables you would like to see posted. I am looking forward to meeting you all!
The best way to get a hold of me is to leave a comment on my blog, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for stopping by!
