About

Stay at home dad uses Etsy Shop as his creative outlet while caring for his Super Hero~The BUG.

Our life was turned upside down when our son was given the terminal diagnosis of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. SMA is the #1 genetic killer of kids under two years of age. We were told that Jadon, who we call "The BUG", was extremely weak, even for SMA, and would likely not live past 8 months.

SMA is a horrible horrible disease that robs the child of all muscle. The BUG is unable to move any portion of his body. Despite the severity of the disease we are determined to "Dance in the Rain of this life storm". We truly try and make the best of each and every day.

This past year (2013) The BUG turned 4 years old! He had a 5k named after him (The BUG RUN), and he was part of a little league baseball team. On his birthday (June 25th) we "ran" the bases and his team sang Happy Birthday to him at home plate.

This shop is set up to raise money for Jadon's Hope Foundation and also help out with our family expenses, but it is just as much about Jadon's Daddy having a creative release. I love to make things. I love to start and finish a project. While caring for The BUG and now his little sister Gracyn is the greatest job I have ever had, this little Etsy Shop provides a much needed creative purpose.

I try and keep the prices as low as possible. I would rather keep making items than make a bunch of money. I barely charge for my time even though it truly is at a premium. I love woodworking, prefer to make boxes, but it is difficult to make the time in the garage. I have been doing a lot of carving on boxes that I have purchased. I also do polymer clay, acrylic paintings, wire trees, wood carving, wine glasses, wine charms, necklaces, and I also love hitting auctions and flea markets for vintage items.

    Jadon's Daddy's second favorite saying is "I can make that". Second only to "Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." Our life storm is Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1 yet we continue to DANCE

Shipping
We ship using the United States Postal Service mostly but could do something different upon request. Larger items like wooden boxes, will go Parcel Post to save our customers some shipping costs.

SHIPPING PRICES ARE ESTIMATED FROM COAST TO COAST (US). We don't ship outside of the US and please contact us about shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, additional costs will likely apply.

We will refund for shipping if our estimate is more than a couple of dollars more than the actual cost to ship your item(s). Location makes can make a big difference.

Figuring out a price for shipping our items seems to be quite a challenge. Combining shipping can be a good way to save some money but some of our items don't ship well with other items.
For instance, our larger wire trees have to ship by themselves (they can't be touching anything inside the box and are actually screwed to the box). Wine charms can be shipped with about anything but more than two sets (by themselves) puts them over the "First Class" weight and the price jumps quite a bit.

Just remember - we are definitely not trying to make any money on shipping. If you would like an exact quote on shipping particular items to your address please convo us and we would be happy to provide that information.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am sorry, but we cannot accept returns and cancellations or offer exchanges at this time.

With that being said we want to make every situation work.

We want you to be extremely pleased with your purchase. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me, before leaving negative feedback and I am sure we can figure something out.

In case of a refund, due to a faulty/damaged product, I will refund you the price of the purchased product, or provide a replacement (at your choice). The shipping fee is non-refundable.

Thank you.
