She Makes a Home is a lifestyle blog for those who live, play, and work at home.

My name is Ashley Pahl, and I am a self-taught painter, portrait artist, and a former stationery designer. I started this site in January 2008, shortly after founding my handmade paper goods business. I wanted to document the experience of starting a home-based business, and empower others who wanted to do the same.

Over the years I have had my work featured at Terrain, an Urban Outfitters company; The Lansing Art Gallery; and numerous other independent stores and galleries around the world. I have been featured in design books such as I Heart Stationery by Charlotte Rivers and The Sweet Spot Style Guide by Desha Peacock; Simply Handmade Magazine; and websites such as Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Decor8, Babble.com, and more. I have also created exclusive designs for The Etsy Blog and Bizarr Verlag. Read more on my Press page.

I live in East Lansing, Michigan with my husband, two children, and two young and crazy cats.

I've also created an online winter holiday magazine - Snowed In, which received a shout-out from Apartment Therapy!

News for 2015: It's very exciting! I am currently contributing to a handmade stationery book, currently in production. Title and publishing date TBA.
