WHY AB CREATIVE?
For starts, my initials are AB...and well, I guess I’ve always believed my most innate Piscean characteristic was creativeness. Truthfully, it’s a passion that sparked from my early days of stamping, card-making and scrapbooking with my beloved mother and grandmothers. From a young age I was enthralled with color palettes, magazine layouts and all things typographical. I spent my summers full of ambition creating dozens of projects to enter in the local county fair that shelled out up to three dollars per blue ribbon — which added up to fully fund my much anticipated back-to-school shopping trip. So that was it, at an early age I realized I could spend every day doing what I love and still afford to buy cute shoes. That was when the seed of AB Creative started to grow.
AB Creative continued to sprout throughout my highly caffeinated semesters at the University of Montana to my extended "stay-cations" in Alaska and the Virgin Islands selling fine jewels to cruise ship folk. It was over those years I slowly devoted my career path towards my passion, taking in every bit of business and design experience I could along the way. When I decided to set some roots, I knew Montana is where I’d want to be; so, when I moved back to the best state ever, I decided to start making my dream a reality, and created AB Creative, my creative design studio.
HI, I'M ALI.
I’m a native Montanan forever stuck on island time. I currently live in my magic kingdom on the shores of beautiful Flathead Lake neighboring the majesty herself, Glacier National Park. You can assume the only bad day I have is when I don’t get outside; on my days off you’ll find me adventuring somewhere off the cellular grid, skiing the slopes of Blacktail Mountain, or picnicking with my besties.
Some days I think life can’t get much better than a leisurely morning, the perfect down pillow, a fresh garbage bag, food from a truck, waking up inside a tent, a good tip, my plants that miraculously manage to live, a new coffee mug, a road trip with no itinerary, a clean car, the contagiousness of a smile, parks of any sort, paying-it-forward, Charlie Chaplin film binges, and my family (you light up my entire world).
