Ashlee Douillard had her aha moment to start her own line of sketchbooks in 2013, while studying architecture and there was a continuous need for quality sketch pads.
It wasn’t until 2017 when she started to sell them and saw that this could be a lucrative business for her. Her line of handmade books, Ashurii Designs, include ruled journals and planners in various sizes that can be customised as well. They showcase the work of various young, local artists.
This initiative is Ashlee’s creative way to fund school supplies and her masters degree.
I finally got my customised, handmade sketchbook from Ashurii Designs a few weeks ago that had to have pink material. This was before she started advertising customised quotes and more on her books though, so can’t wait get more! Who knows, maybe GW Art will be a part of an Ashurii Designs handmade book soon too.
Remember that when you support a small business, someone does a happy dance.

It’s been a long time coming, but Suga finally got the chance to return to Chive last Saturday and I am happy I did!
Our server, Orlando was superb. Loved the variety on their new menu with relatively reasonable prices. Our dishes did not fall short on flavour. Portion sizes were adequate, dishes were well presented and with a comfortable atmosphere, I have no complaints.
Those Mussels were indeed spicy!
***Prices did not include G.C.T and a 10% service charge***
I hope to try one of their tempting Burgers on a cheat day next time!
Chive Restaurant continues to be #SugaEndorsed. Give them a visit for Lunch or Dinner!
