Handmade Feature | Ashley from A.N.C Creations Handmade

Please welcome this week's Featured Handmade Crafter~~Ashley from A.N.C Creations Handmade
1) Ashley, could you tell us a little about yourself and what you do?

My name is Ashley, and I design clothing, both through sewing and crochet, baby items, teen, adults, home decor, accessories, and more. I also have my own website where I offer Advertising & Networking to clients, as well as Professional Photo Editing Services as everyone can use that feature. I have 13 years of experience in both sewing and crochet. I also make some jewelry, but right now do not have any listed. I am always looking for my next project whether crochet or sewing. I like to keep new items in my shop and offer newer items as often as possible.

2) Why did you start crafting?

To me, what I do is a job, I work very hard for the items I put into my shop. I love to crochet and sew, and when the job market went down I found my true passion--crocheting and sewing. I love what I do and I love why I do it. I make items because I love to design new clothes, home decor, and more. I want to bring people something that they could not find elsewhere. 

I  find that I love crocheting clothes from newborn to adult. Right now I am working on a few projects specifically for teens and adults. I love to challenge myself and find new ways of creating a new piece for my shop. I think of what I do as art because you must first envision an item, determine what size to make it, and create it from scratch or from a pattern I buy or find free online. 

I think my favorite item is my 3 piece little girl outfit that I hand crocheted. It is made with a dress, shawl, and headband with flower. I find it extremely adorable and it seems to be quite popular. Although, to be honest I love everything I do which makes picking a favorite even more difficult.

When I say I love what I do, I really do. I have never felt so fulfilled or rewarded until now. I enjoy working with new customers and returning customers. I accept custom orders because of the talent I have. There is so much I can really do that I have not had enough time to put everything in my shop. I find that I enjoy not only my handmade business, but helping others like myself succeed by my Advertising & Networking. I help people learn what they need to do to succeed, and advertise them in many different ways, some of which include my website and social media sites. I utilize the talents I have to help others succeed in their dreams as well.  I hope to one day make this a Full- Time 7 days a week job. 

I am a workaholic.  You can ask anyone around. I am always working on something.  When I'm not working, I am tending to my home, husband, animals, and my family. I have been married for nearly 7 years (this coming March). We live in a small town in Southeast Missouri, known as Millersville. You can always find me online or close to my phone. I encourage those that do not know me, but would like to purchase from me, to ask questions and not hesitate to contact me.   I really do enjoy answering questions and verifying information when need be. I am an open book, honest to the hilt, and willing to discuss just about anything.

I also work as captain of 2 teams: Crazy About Crochet and Promoting Your Friends where co- captain Teresa Delosh works with me. I encourage any and all to view our Promoting Your Friends page on Facebook  where you will find great daily deals, wonderful information about sales and shops, etc.

If a person is looking to connect with me there are many ways in which a person can connect with me, as I have many websites.
