Eeeek! I’m so excited!!! 🙂 Can ya tell?
Before I forget; I’m Ashley Dylan, but you can call me Ash if you’d like. I’m in my early 20s, born and raised in the awesome mitten state. (I mean REALLY, who else can say they are from a state the shape of a mitten with loads of water fun surrounding them??) I have 2 lil kitties that I absolutely adore and could scroll through looking at cute kitten pictures all day…um…I mean can’t we all????
Now that we have that out of the way, AshleyDylan.com is all about having fun, and discovering adventure. One of my fave things is documenting it for ya! Cause really?!?! Pictures and video are kinda all over the place. Think about it. Our world is going to be sooo well documented for future generations, and how cool will that be?!?! Don’t you wish you could look up 1782, and see loads of pictures and videos???
And yeah, I mean, you do see a lot of crochet designs and tutorials here, but that’s because old habits are kinda hard to break. (Right? Not just me???) But I do love sharing my love for the ocean and young adult style through my designs. But don’t worry, I’m working on that. I’m trying really hard to show ya some other fun things too. (Not that there is anything wrong with crochet. Cause, crochet designer here, haha)
Anyways, back on track. I LOVE showing you what I’m up to. …and yeah, I haven’t really been so great with the vlogs, because people around me don’t really like to be shown (myself included sometimes). But I’m working on it. It’ll come around. Okay, now I’m just babbling on about it, but don’t worry your pretty little head about that. I’ve got some great plans for the future. 😁
Actually, now that I think about it; I spent the past few years getting better and better at taking pictures, but wasn’t actually in them myself… Hmmmm Maybe I’ll have to do something about that…MAYBE
Oh!!! You might have also noticed the store. So, here’s the deal. I don’t have 3rd party ads on this site like many other sites do. (I know, I hate those too. Blah!) And I totally LOVE finding, making and designing things for ya in the shop. Sooo, that’s how I make up for all the costs of the site. Totally awesome, right?!?! ANNNNND we have a Semi Annual Ashie Sale for 2 days only. You really don’t want to miss that! Super awesome deals for super duper awesome stuff. How could it possible get any better than that?!?!
Before I forget this (Ha have ya realized I try to fit everything in, before I forget it…) we LOVE making #AshieGoals around here!!! Yeah, Ashie Goals are whenever we feel a win. Meaning we finished a project, finished a row/round, got up the confidence to take a selfie, anything we truly feel excited about. And share it with #AshieGoals Got it? You probably made an #AshieGoal today and didn’t even realize it. Woohoo congrats!!!! 🎉
Now that I’m on a roll of talking about Ashies; what are Ashies or an Ashie (Are you an Ashie?)?? Well an Ashie is your nickname, get it? Instead of fans cause let’s face it, I only like the word fan for the actual fan that spins round round blowing air. Otherwise, I cringe at the word. Soooo I fixed the problem, but I really didn’t want to cringe when thinking of you. Helloooo? You’re awesome!!! 🤗
Yea know, there is something I really love! Photography. Yes, I know I was just talking about it, but I love taking pictures! I usually feel really weird in public taking pictures, but oh well. They can create some really interesting angles that way. Ya know? Making it look like you’re not taking a photo, but it’s really obvious… hahaha Okay, maybe I should get over that.
Anyways, I LOVE sharing photos! As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. And that’s really helpful because sometimes I’m really talkative, and sometimes not so much. 🤣
So what the Adventure Gallery???
The Adventure Gallery is here to help inspire you to create your adventure. Hopefully you do get inspired, and pass this gallery along to your friends, so they can get inspired too. The gallery will continue to expand as time goes on, and I hope ya might even get inspired to start your own Adventure Gallery!
Well go ahead. Take a look!
