FAQ’s-

q. Do you really do roller derby?
a. Yes. Religiously.

q. Really? You’re so small and nice?
a. YES REALLY. Don’t make me hipcheck you to prove it.

q. How do you still have time to make glitter paintings?
a. That is an excellent question. I don’t really. Most of the items in my shop were made over a year ago before I tried out for derby. But I’m planning on making some new stuff soon. Sleep is probably overrated.

q. Do you do custom work?
a. Yes. I’ve done wedding photos, pet portraits, favorite movie characters, ornaments, and magnets. High contrast images work best. It usually takes 2 weeks to complete a custom order from the date I receive your image. Convo me if you’re interested.

q. What qualifies you to make glitter paintings?
a. I majored in Fine Art (capital F, capital A) at Carnegie Mellon University where my professors taught me everything I needed to know about appropriation. The glitter stuff I had to figure out on my own. It’s a constantly evolving process.

q. Why do you have a section for non-glitter items?
a. Sometimes I actually need a break from breathing, eating, and bathing in glitter (literally). Besides, you can’t make a glitter painting on a bus. Or in a coffee shop. And there are no glitter and bitch groups. And I don’t work at a glitter company. Yet.

q. Do your glitter paintings have a myspace?
a. Why actually, yes, yes they do. But probably not for long since I never check it. It’s www.myspace.com/glitterpaintings. Check it out now while you can. Or just visit me at www.myspace.com/cherrylipsmacker. You can also check out my paintings at www.flickr.com/photos/angelamodz/

q. Do you really give a portion of the proceeds to Portland Women’s Crisis Line (PWCL)?
a. Well, I would if anybody bought anything. I’m a proud member-to-be of the soon-to-be-formed, yet-to-be-named PWCL craft collective and craft night. For more information on PWCL, check out www.pwcl.org or www.myspace.com/pwcl. The money raised by the collective will be used to fund danger-to-safety long distance bus transfers and motel vouchers for those all too frequent nights when all 9 of the domestic violence shelters in Portland are full and someone is in a dangerous dv situation.

the fine print-
Shipping:
I ship within a week of purchase. I know I should do it sooner, but I really don’t like going to the post office. If you have a deadline or need sometime for a special occasion, just let me know and I’ll suck it up and go to the post office ASAP so that your purchase gets there in time.

Return Policy:
If you ever get something and there's something wrong with it, please contact me first. I'll try to fix the problem, or you can send it back, and you'll be refunded all but the shipping price of the item.

All of my items are made in a smoke-free, vegan-friendly environment. I do have a cat. He doesn’t like glitter but he does shed. I try my darndest to keep the cat hair out of my pieces (and do a pretty amazing job if I do say so myself!) but if you are deathly allergic to cat hair or dander, I might not be the seller for you.
