***Thanks so very much for stopping by!***

++ABOUT SHIPPING - All items will be shipped as soon as your payment has been received. Everything will be carefully packaged and labeled accordingly to best protect your item(s) in transit to their new happy home. The larger framed art will be shipped with insurance to save tears (yours AND mine : ) If the shipping is less than the total anticipated (includes materials), I will be happy to refund the difference. Please convo for overseas prices, as I have NO idea, but we'll figure it out! : )

++ARTWORK - My pieces take anywhere from several days (I'm on a bender), to several weeks (I'm thinking 'til my eyes cross), to a couple months to create (they just hadda percolate awhile : ). There's a lot of measuring, marking & thinking (which sometimes hurts and doesn't always work with a chemo brain-ha). What appears to be a naturally repeating pattern is sometimes the result of very tedious planning. With the exception of the stacks, all of the frames are specially adapted (by me) with shims - small strips of wood meticulously painted to coordinate with the piece. These are placed around the inside edge of the frame and create the necessary depth for the origami - otherwise the glass would just squash them flat : )

++PAPER - Almost all of the origami items were created using acid-free paper (except the recycled stuff). The backgrounds and some folds (college team art, for example) were made with scrapbook paper which is much more resilient & less prone to fading than regular paper (it IS still paper, though!).
