ASHLEY ROSE | HOUSTON, TX
Once upon a time I attended Marshall university for Art & Design. Then, against my parents’ better judgement, I decided to take a break from school. That break turned into two years. During those two years I moved across the country to Houston, Texas, gained a little more faith, learned from a few mistakes, and found an entirely new appreciation for art and design.
In the midst of all of that, I started a little blog, Sugar & Cloth, in September of 2011 with the intention of sharing projects and life with friends and family back home. It blossomed into more than I ever imagined, and now I’m working from the new Sugar & Cloth studio and workshop space crafting and baking lots of pretties with my other half and resident photographer, Jared. He also helps me sharpen my outstanding sense of humor by pretending to laugh at my jokes all day long. Oh, and we take many, many coffee and macaron breaks…
I’m also a co-founder of Creative Collective Houston, a group dedicated to helping creative small businesses connect with fellow local businesses to cross-promote and collaborate. You can become a part of the group here!
Do you take your own photographs?
Yes, but as of lately my better half, Jared, has been manning all of the photography aspects. If my posts contain someone else’s hard work, it will be noted. Collages of my favorite products are created by me, but are not my own property. If you would like to use my photographs, please contact me for direct written permission.
What programs do you use for your pictures?
Lightroom for editing, and Picasa for quick collages for round-ups.
Can I use your photographs on my blog, publication, or social media feeds?
You may use a SINGLE project or recipe image(and not a collage) as long as it distinctly states that the project is by Sugar & Cloth, listed with proper photographer credit , and linked back to the original project on Sugar & Cloth as well as links to the photographer.
You may not use photos on Sugar & Cloth to share on Instagram or other social media as your own, or bury credit in hashtags. You may not use images as promotional material with your own graphics. You may not alter or combine multiple images into one, or use images to your own context that does not feature, relate, and link to the original project.
