Blazing a trail through life's wonders (and coffee ... lots of coffee!)

*You approach the yellow wooden door, with a stained glass depiction of a full-to-the-brim mug at eye level. It creaks open as you land on the final stepping stone and find yourself face-to-face with a tall woman in her thirties, who's still wiping her flour-covered hands on an apron in the most luscious shade of spruce green. She beams at you.*

Well, hello there! Having a wander through my shop, are you? I hope you're enjoying your perusing! You do look a mite parched, though ... Here, I'll make us a cuppa.

What would you like? Hot chocolate with whippety cream? Tea with a drop of honey? An overflowingly foamy latte? Cherry ginger kombucha?

Ah, wonderful!

*She spins away for a moment, a whirl of steam and ice and a spicy scent in the air, and then returns to you, cup in hand.* There we are! Enjoy!

Oh, the story of A Cuppa Cosy? Really? How kind of you to ask! Let's sit in the garden and have a chat, shall we?

*The two of you make your way out to a garden bursting with flowers and bushes and sheltering trees, and sit right in the middle.*

While I first opened this Etsy store in 2017, I barely touched it at first. You know how life takes you for a twirl, right?

Come 2021, I decided to finally give it a proper try. I nervously opened an old sketchbook and began to draw border designs inspired by everything from my own nonsensical doodles to architectural features that I found beautiful.

The more I sketched, the more something wonderful happened ... for the first time in a very long time, I was excited by what I was drawing! And the more I drew, the more designs I thought of, and the more practical printable ideas I had, to not only make my life easier (hence allowing more freedom for creativity and taking care of myself and the people I love) but the lives of others, too. Then when I began to learn how to use Inkscape, and turn my sketched designs into a digital reality ... oof. No stopping me now!

It's early days yet, but there are so many designs I've yet to share ... before too long, it's my hope these digital shelves will be bursting with goodies!

For now, though, it looks like our cups are empty! Oh dear. I'll just go and refill those, and you have a lovely mosey!

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer custom and/or personalised items?

Some of my listings offer an element of personalization, yes!
At this time, that's only the return address labels. While I'm not otherwise offering custom or personalised orders, I'm so grateful for your interest, and hope you find something you love elsewhere!

May I share or resell the items I buy?

The items I sell are for personal use only and not to be shared.

The only exceptions would be things like, say, a chore chart printable that's used by others within your household.

Exceptions would *not* include things like sharing the printables you buy with other members of a writing group.

Are any physical items shipped to me?

Nothing physical will be sent to you. Everything sold through A Cuppa Cosy is digital and will need to be printed by you, either through a home printer of your own or a printing service.

Do you offer refunds?

For the most part, no. The nature of digital items makes it difficult for me to verify whether someone is genuine in their refund request, or if they've simply downloaded the item, asked for a refund, and plan to keep using it regardless.

However, there are two caveats to this. For one, if you're struggling to access the file, please feel free to send me a message and I'll do what I can to help!

Beyond that, if you still wish for a refund because you can't find any way to access the file, or it's not at all what you hoped for when you actually see it, let me know and I will grant you a refund.

How do I download the items I purchased?

Etsy has a wonderful article on this very topic, so I'd start there:

https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115013328108?segment=shopping

How do I access files after downloading them?

All the files in my shop at this time will come either in a ZIP file or a PDF.

For the printables, because of the variations included for each, you'll likely see that what's been downloaded is a ZIP file. Here are some instructions for unzipping files on a Windows computer:

And a Mac:

https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/mac-help/mchlp2528/mac

After that, you'll see either PDF files, or folders which contain PDF files. These are your printables! To open them (or any other PDFs from other listings), you'll need Adobe Reader, which is free to download and use:

What's the story behind your design process?

As far as the functional content goes, all my printables are inspired by something I myself have felt a yearning for, either because it makes my life easier now or could have eased it in the past.

The visual themes I design are inspired by everything from geometric patterns to architecture to sparrows having a dance party in the dirt. Most are sketched out first by hand (usually with pencil, sometimes with ink). Once I'm happy with and feel connected to how the design is shaping up, I move over to my computer, open Inkscape, and start transforming my pencil vision into a digital reality!

Also, I often share my ideas and brainstorm along the way with my lovely Mum, one of the most whimsically creative people I know.
