Growing an idea.

My shop started when I felt the need to be creative. It was just this urge inside of me, this feeling that I wanted to make some thing.

My husband picked up on this and bought me my first ever artist brushes and paints on our first married Christmas together.

I loved painting. I loved it. I was never very good at it, but I loved it, so I kept on keeping on.

And then on our 10th wedding anniversary, my husband bought me flowers; which then withered and died as flowers tend to do. And I wished I would remember the vase they came in, because I just wanted something to remember that special anniversary.
So, I went about turning that vase into a work of art. I tried several different techniques until I came up with the stucco and concrete method that I still use today.

6 years later, I am so thrilled that I can share my art with, literally the world, here on Etsy. Each sale thrills me be it the customer who lives one town over from me, or across the world.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
I accept Etsy Direct Checkout. You can pay for your purchases directly through Etsy with your credit card.

I also accept Paypal. Paypal is easy to use and provides protection for both buyer and seller. Paypal allows you to pay with your credit card without giving me your information.

*You don't need to sign up for a Paypal account to make a purchase. This link explains how to do it:

If you wish to use another form of payment, please feel free to contact me and we can determine if something can be arranged.
Domestic Shipping:

My current US shipping prices range between 6 and 12 dollars. After the USPS quoted price and a small fee for packing materials, I assure you, I charge no more for shipping than what is required to ship. Most often I will ship via Priority Mail.

International shipping:

The cheapest way to ship my sometimes heavy items, is first class international. If you prefer a faster method, contact me for a quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will gladly refund your money-less shipping - within 30 days of purchase, as long as the item is returned to me. I would much rather you message me if you are unhappy with anything, as I would like to try to make it right.
