Personal Work

In 2017, Josh and Ashley began making candles in their kitchen. It was a fun way to experiment and do what they love – create things with their hands. For Ashley, it scratched the creative itch she didn’t always get with her day job. For Josh, well, he likes things that smell good, so he was along for the ride. Beginning as a small Facebook Page where family and friends could buy candles, Novalis Candles expanded into Novalis Collections in 2018. Now, Ashley sells homemade gifts year round, usually released as “collections” throughout the seasons. Custom orders for candles, stationery, painting, or woodwork accepted year round. If you don’t see examples of what you’d like, just ask! We’re always willing to try something new. Contact Ashley at or visit the Novalis Collections Facebook Page.
