Hi! I'm Julie...
A former city girl now living in beautiful Alexandria Ontario. Former corporate employee turned “maker”, lover of the countryside, family and our dogs…I am the owner of Cedar & Fern.
I began crafting, painting and sign making since moving to our country home and have recently had family and friends asking to buy my handmade pieces…so I thought “okay.. why not” maybe I can turn this into something bigger than I ever imagined.
Although I have worked from home for years, I have now traded in my “9 to 5”, conference calls and deadlines, to work from my studio on our property with tools, wood, paint and stain that now forge this new chapter in my life.
When I am not in my studio you’ll find me at my new retail shop in the heart of Alexandria Ontario or in the company of my amazing and supportive partner, our two loving dogs and 2 growing teenagers!
The best part of all of this is that you are here on this journey with me! Without you, none of this would be possible. So from my heart…
THANK YOU AND WELCOME TO CEDAR & FERN
Our retail shop is located at 8 Main Street North in picturesque Alexandria, Ontario! Come shop for handmade wood signs, home decor and gifts. All items lovingly and joyfully crafted by Canadian makers.
My studio is a historic, rural log cabin nestled in a sea of ferns under a dense forest of towering cedars. An abundance of flowers, birds and wildlife inspire creativity. It's an idyllic place for me to create.
