*Please, scroll down for my store policies!


Let's see... I'm a first-time, stay-at-home mother to an amazing little girl. I'm a newlywed. My husband is my best friend and my daughter is my most wonderous creation. I live in Florence, SC but, grew up all over (various places in SC & NC, the Azores). My family is comprised of many artistic people with various talents (drawing, painting, sewing, crosstitching, woodworking, scrimshawing, knife making, and the list goes on). I'm an avid reader and animal lover. I've had countless "roommates" of many different species (feline, canine, reptilian, fish, even a Peking duck). I've loved anything and everything artistic since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I've dabbled in a little bit of everything from scrapbooking to photography to drawing to various edible concoctions…

Store Policies and All of That Stuff:

- I accept payments via Paypal, personal check, or money order. Paypal is my preferred method of payment. Please send your full payment within 3 days. If you have a special situation and need more time, send me a convo and I will try to work something out. I do not ship any item until the full payment is made.

- I ship via USPS. If you desire an alternate method of shipment, send me a convo and I will make arrangements to do so.

- Shipping charges vary amongst my items due to the different sizes, weights, expense, and fragility of my creations. I use high quality packing and shipping materials. If an item requires extra protection, the added expense will be reflected in the shipping cost. If at any time, the shipping rates are lower than what I have quoted, I will notify you immediately and refund the difference.

- Insurance is a GREAT idea. Please, consider it whenever making a purchase. I am not responsible for lost or damaged items once they leave me but, if a problem should occur, I will happily provide a discount for you to use toward a replacement or alternate item. If the item you initially purchased cannot be remade, I will do everything I can to create another item that you will be proud to call your own.

- I put forth great effort in creating items that are durable but, if your purchase should need repair, please return it to me within 10 days and I will mend it for you. I will also pay to ship the item back to you.

- I LOVE custom orders! If you have an idea for something special and unique, convo me and I will do my very best to create something tailored to your specifications. I do require half-down (or full payment, if you desire) before I begin creating your item. Sadly, I cannot refund your full or partial payment once the work begins and custom items are non-refundable.

- I leave feedback a.s.a.p. and would LOVE it if you would do the same!

- You are of the highest value to me! If you are dissatisfied for any reason, please, contact me and I will do my very best to correct the problem!

- If there is anything you would like to see in my shop or anything you would like me to alter concerning the buying experience that I provide, convo me! Suggestions are always welcome!
