Unique housewarming, wedding, anniversary, holiday, or just-because gifts

I never thought of myself as crafty or artistic at all, but when I bought my first home, I just couldn't find any Christmas decorations in the colors and themes that I wanted so I decided to try making my own. I started with painting ornaments, then moved to decoupage, then etched glass - anything that caught my eye. I never realized what a wonderful creative outlet it could be and, once I started, I just wanted to keep trying new techniques and ideas.

I've made a lot of things since then, but it wasn't until I started making burlap prints that I considered selling them. I had more ideas than I could fit on my own walls, so my husband suggested giving Etsy a shot. We had such a great experience with Etsy when we were planning our wedding, and it seemed like such a welcoming community that it didn't feel quite as intimidating to open my own shop here as doing it completely on my own would have been. The people on Etsy - both the buyers and the sellers - have been wonderful, and I couldn't be happier with our experience here so far!

My designs usually feature themes relating to either beginning or celebrating a happy life together (hence our tagline "Forever Starts Here"!)

Frequently asked questions
How do I submit my personalization information?

During checkout, you will see a box labeled 'Add an optional note to the seller'. This box is just under the green 'Submit Order' button section on the website and should be just above your Order Total on the app. Please enter the customization information in this box.

I need my order by next week. Is this possible?

Maybe! If you need your item by a specific date and that date is earlier than our posted turnaround time, please contact us before ordering to make sure that we can meet your deadline.

Can I get a proof of my item?

If you ordered a personalized wood sign or a fully-custom design for a silhouette, you will get one automatically.

For other items, we send proofs on request if possible. Our 3D paper signs are assembled from several pieces, including maps from physical map books, so a digital proof doesn't exist.

I accidentally used an old address when placing my order. What happens now?

If your order has not shipped yet, send us the new address and we can make the change. Please note that if the new address has an increased shipping charge, we will need to set up a custom listing for you to purchase to pay for the additional shipping charge.

If your order has shipped, you may still receive the package if USPS will forward the package. However, If an order is returned to us due to an incorrect shipping address that was provided during checkout, you will be responsible for the cost of shipping the item to the new address.

What does marking it as "gift" do?

We only do something different for "gift" orders if you ask us to.

Most Etsy users have vague user names so we would need to know who the item is from and who it's to.

We offer a couple of options for gift notes:
To/From cards are free.
A card with a note is $4.95
A note engraved on the item is $10 (wood signs only)

Can your wood signs be used outdoors?

The signs we make are recommended for indoor use only. You could have them outside for an event, but we recommend keeping them away from rain, snow, humidity, or extreme temperature changes.

What if I don't like the proof?

We include one revision in the price of the design, which the vast majority of time is all it takes to get a version you like. If it requires several rounds or design revisions, we do have to charge for the additional design time.

Can I cancel my order for a refund?

Since all of our items are custom and personalized, it depends on the item and where it is in production.

If we have not started work on the personalized portions of your item (like engraving a wood sign or cutting silhouettes for a paper sign), absolutely. We can give you a full refund.

For custom designs, we can only offer a 50% refund after your proof is sent.

My item has a slightly burnt smell to it. Do you smoke?

No, we do not.

Many of our items are cut on a laser and have a burnt smell for a couple days after they are cut (and the bubble wrap we ship it in traps the smell in the box).

If the item still smells a little burnt when you get it, the smell should go away in a few days.

What will my heart map show?

It depends on the exact location.

In larger cities, I can get exact street locations. In most places, it will show the city name.

In some smaller towns, I might not be able to find a map that calls out the town name. In that case, I'll center where the town is in the heart and get the nearest town names in the heart for reference.
