Introducing... Tonic and Lime Designs!

Today we are delighted to share with you one of our guest vendors this month.

Ashley grew up with great examples of that old saying 'Follow Your Bliss'.  With an entrepreneur mother and crafting grandparents, she quickly learned an appreciation for handmade.  Ashley's home  is now decorated with items her grandparents created with passion.  When she and her husband decided to move from British Columbia, all the way to Quebec, Ashley decided it was time to follow in her mother's footsteps and take the leap into selling her craft online.  

While Ashely is full of sugar and spice, she loves nothing more then bitter and sour. Since you'll find her in the summertime with an icy glass of tonic water, made a milky hue from all the lime juice squeezed into it, her shop name, Tonic and Lime Designs came quite naturally.  

Ashley loves to brainstorm new ideas and even keeps a notebook by the side of the bed, incase inspiration strikes.  When she isn't crafting, she's out biking, gardening or tucked away in a corning reading a good book.  It's probably how her awesome bookmarks got designed; all of her designs are created by her, with top notch customer service.

And of course we couldn't let Ashley get away without asking her, her thoughts on Canada. Here's what she said...

I love how diverse our country is. Not only how diverse we are but how proud we are to celebrate that fact.

(While travelling) I would meet people for the time and tell them I was from Canada I was always greeted with a huge smile and compliments about our beautiful country and Canadians in general. It made me feel really fortunate to be Canadian.

If you would like to see more of Ashley's designs, you can check out her shop, her facebook, on Twitter (@TonicLimeDesign) and instagram (@tonicandlimedesigns).

You will also find her in the June stocking at The Northern Collective.
