Ash Schweitzer

Hi, I’m Ashley.

I quit my day-job two years ago in order to pursue my creative passions. This blog is my way of sharing with you my own creative adventure and experiences in the hopes of inspiring and encouraging you to embark on a similar journey. I’m sharing insights from my life as a creative entrepreneur, small business(s) owner, wife, healthy living enthusiast, adventurer, etc.

I hope I can help to inspire you to follow your dreams and do exactly what you love every single day – just as I am.


I run a tiny independent design studio called The Curio Company where, with the help of my husband, I build unique brand experiences for passionate small businesses. I also run a small scale paper goods shop called Curio Paper, which allows me to create things with my hands – one of my many passions. And after hours I run a small business called The Simple Cup, which I founded as a way to creatively give back.

Life & Wellness

I’m on the pursuit of healthy living and will be sharing some lifestyle / wellness tips with you along the way. This means anything from healthy recipes, to workout routines – which all play a big part in the day-to-day. You have to take care of yourself first before you can successfully do anything.

 Back at it.  I switched to yoga for awhile after getting a little down on myself when I wasn't seeing any real progress with my strength training. And I get bored with workouts way too easily. Yoga helped me reconnect and learn how to be happy with where I'm at, no matter how much progress I think I *haven't* made. Fitness is totally a mental thing. I still do yoga every morning in order to focus and tame any anxiety that arises, but I'm excited to start HIIT again with the help of @mytrainercarmen. Also turning 25 = slower metabolism.
 It's been unusually foggy in our neck of the woods lately.
 Pretty drawings for pretty projects.
