Story about a girl and crafts

Do You want to hear a story? Long time ago there was a girl. She liked to crochet and knit, but teachers and parents told her - You don't have talent in crafts. You have different talents, lets work with them. Leave crafts, You are not good enough. And girl believed them - after all, You have to believe Your parents and teachers, they know better, don't they? Anyway, time went by, girl grew up and almost forgot, that she liked crafts. She got job, then another job - interesting, but not craft related. And then she decided to quit. She had her reasons. So she got unemployed and had to decide, what to do next. And instead of looking for another job, she got this crazy idea - crafts! She is adult, she doesn't have to listen to anyone anymore. So why no try? And that's how it started...
At first it was ebay - I didn't make much, but I learned to make my stuff, to take pictures, to price it, to sell it. A year later I got full time job again (it was too difficult for me not to ;listen to "You can;'t do this, You can't make living with this, You have to have "real" job"...). But after 1,5 years I understood, that I want back my crafts! So I quit my full time job (again) and opened shop on Etsy.

So, about my "crafts".
I play with colors and stitches. I don't have patterns for my appliques. It is all in my head.
I see "trendy" pastel shades (dirty white, gray, dirty light blue, dirty gray etc.) every day and it makes me feel "gray" myself. Believe or not, but it's so hard to buy something not "gray"... So my appliques are my way to make things more colorful.
Materials:
Mostly I work with cotton Turkish and Egyptian mercerized "perle" cotton thread. It's soft and silky. But if needed I can work also with other yarns - both natural and syntethic.
I can't buy my yarns "in bulk" (too expensive and I would not have place to keep them), so every week I go to "yarn treasure hunt" - there are 4 or five different yarn stores (small ones) to visit. Sellers in these stores already know me - we are like good friends ;) And that's great - they know, that I'm looking for, so, if there is something new, they always tell me and sometimes give me nice discount :)
For my crocheted beads I use natural wood beads - they are not polished or varnished - it's just pure wood shape.
Each bead, applique and doll clothing piece is made by my hands - stitch by stitch. Crocheting is quite time consuming. For example, I can make ~6-8 beads per hour (or 4-5 appliques).

I usually ship within 3-4working days after payment is cleared. I don't ship on weekends. For example - if purchase is made on Thursday, it will be shipped out on Monday.
Lots "made to order" can take more time to be ready for shipping. Estimated shipping times for these products are shown in the description of the listing.
Items are shipped as registered small parcels through Latvia Post. This type of parcels are trackable in most countries.
Countries, that don't track this type of parcels (as much as I know): Australia, New Zealand, USA (right now), Canada.
Please note, that items ship from Latvia, Europe. Shipping time varies (and there are always exceptions also): for EU countries - 5-10 working days, for USA and Canada - 14-21 working days. Australia has been very slow lately and shipping time can be up to 4 weeks and more.
You will receive shipping notification to You e-mail. Tracking number will be available also on Your purchase page and You will be able to track Your parcel on www.track-trace.com and (for most countries) in Your country post website.

Note for USA customers. Due to changes in USPS tracking system, most parcels are not trackable in usps.com site right now. Hopefully this will change soon.

Packaging
I use plastic self adhesive bags for packing products and bubble envelope to send my items (or cardboard box for larger orders). As postage cost depends on package weight I try to make it as minimal as possible to avoid higher shipping fees. I don't usually add printed receipt (both to save planet resources and not to add weight to parcel), If You need one, You can print it on Your purchase page or let me know in "notes to seller", when purchasing.
Autres conditions et FAQ
All my items come from non-smokers home.

Do You have discounts for larger orders?

I try to keep my prices as low as possible, but sometimes I can offer small discount for bulk orders of handmade supplies (bulk order - order for more than 15 sets of same product or order above 100$ before shipping). For commercial supplies (thread, unfinished beads etc.) I can't offer additional discounts as I put very small margin on them.

Can I use Your appliques/beads to make my own items to sell?

Yes. You can use them as You wish and You definitely can sell items You make using them.

Shipping costs, combined shipping

Shipping costs consists of actual postal costs (based on parcel weight) + cost of shipping materials (bubble envelope or box).
I do refund excess shipping over 1 €.
