About

I love what I do.

The shop is just me (Ronda). I design, hand make, and personally package & ship everything from my shop. I love so many crafts, and am happiest when designing something new. I design accessories, gifts and jewelry that I personally love to wear and/or receive as a gift. It is a passion. With the warmer months, I turn my attention to natural fibers of cotton, hemp & bamboo. In autumn, I crochet in snuggle-tested yarns.

My love for travel is apparent, especially in my jewelry designs. I want pieces that can be dressed up or down, worn many different ways, and that I do not have to worry about while on the road or in the hotel room. Whenever I wear one of my crochet pieces, I always get a compliment on it --and I love to wear hemp, especially on the beach.

Crochet is a craft my grandmother taught me over 40 years ago (yep, I'm a *bit* older). I look for new and unique ways to apply this skill. I don't really crochet from patterns, rather I create (and re-create) as I go. When I find a design a like, I tend to stick with it for a while, and then look to design something completely new from scratch.

Paper products and design skill grew with making custom wedding invitations, programs, menus, thank you cards and the like. I hand cut and shape all my paper products.

My History: I have been planning weddings & parties for several years (OK, decades). I love the details of special events and it does require you to be a Jack (or Jill) of many trades. Brides and clients are always on a budget and want a personal/unique event.

Painting is my first love and one of which I am formally trained. Although my work on canvas is usually personal (and not for sale), I do work it in with my other crafts, such as paper flowers and jewelry.

My Shop: I work in a pet friendly home, although my feline friends are not allowed in the studio (the fish stay in their own space too). All textile items are hand washed before shipping. I've included a picture of my cat Cheechoo, a six-toed short hair rescue cat. I just want the customer to have all the information before purchasing.
♻️ I have an Earth-friendly shop & recycle/upcycle as many materials as possible.

    The Curious Purple Pig was the best gift I ever received: Christmas when I was 3 years old, from my beloved grandmother. I made it clothes, hats, & jewelry. I keep it in my creative space and inspires me daily to do what I love.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping Charges

I offer free US shipping on some items & free US shipping on orders totaling $45+. International orders of $45 or more will receive a shipping rebate the amount of the standard US rate. Upgrading shipping is optional with an extra fee. Free shipping is applied on the lowest cost ship method.

I always refund shipping charges if the difference is greater than $2. ♻️Clean recycled shipping material is used when possible.

The shipping date on your receipt is the date it will be sent. I often beat that time and I have never missed a shipping date. The arrival date fluctuates depending on your location, shipping options you select, and the time of year. Please allow the appropriate transit time if you need your item by a certain date.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I will happily gift wrap & write a gift message. I use tissue, cello bags, handmade envelopes & small gift boxes as appropriate. Please select the gift wrapping option at checkout.

In the case of direct shipping of a gift, please make sure the recipient's address is correct. Address mistakes & reshipping are charged to the customer.

I do not include invoices on domestic shipments.
Your online receipt is available on Etsy under the "YOU" icon, "PURCHASES & REVIEWS." You may request a printed receipt at checkout in the notes box.

Invoices are are always included on international orders.

♻️Clean, recycled shipping/packaging materials are used when possible.

Custom and personalized orders

I accept custom orders on nearly all of my items. Let me know what you would like and I will do my best to meet your needs.

Custom orders are not returnable/exchangeable unless otherwise stated in the listing description. Custom orders may have a non-refundable supply fee noted in the listing.

Seller Information & Taxes

My shop is a registered retail business in the state of Indiana. I am required to collect sales tax on items sold and shipped within this state. The state tax rate is applied at checkout. I can supply a photo copy of my Registered Retail Merchant Certificate on request. TID: 0152372652

Returning Items

I hope you love what I have made, but if not...please contact me first. I will do my best to make us both happy regarding the purchase.

The customer is responsible for packing items securely & safely. Small jewelry items sent through regular first class (machined) mail nearly always arrive back broken. I recommend sending as a parcel. Shipping insurance and tracking is strongly recommended as refunds/exchanges cannot be issued for damaged/lost items. Custom orders may have a non-refundable supply fee noted in the listing. Once received it (they) can be exchanged for other items in my shop up to the same value or credited to higher value items. All shipping return expenses are paid by the customer.

Sale items cannot be returned.

Item Photos

I strive to take accurate photos in natural light. Please be advised that different monitors/devices may show colors differently. If you need more information on a color(s), do not hesitate to contact me.

Generally, I send photos of custom items before shipping for final approval to minimize the risk to the customer. This process will be noted in the custom listing or through Etsy message system.

Seasonal Items

Seasonal items, like all items, must be returned in 100% new & unused with original tags. They cannot show any evidence of wear (other than trying them on). Seasonal items include all items made with a holiday theme & tag (e.g., Christmas, St Patricks, Easter, Thanksgiving, July 4, etc.) and speciality wedding items. Removal of tags & any sign of wear will reduce the item return/exchange value.

~~The buyer must show proof of mailing (e.g., a postal receipt, tracking number) within 14 days of receiving the package. The item still has up to 30 days to arrive back to the shop.

Seasonal/wedding items that have been customized generally cannot be returned. Please see the listing specifics and contact me if you have any questions.

My Pet Friendly Shop

I work in a pet friendly home. 4-legged beings are not allowed in my studio and all items are handwashed/cleaned before shipping. But you the customer should have all the information before purchasing.

PiF & "Oops" Sales

The items in this category are deeply discounted on sale items. Any defect/issue is noted in the listing. Please contact me for further information on these items before purchasing if needed.

On sale items such as PiF (Pay it Forward) & Oops items are not returnable/exchangeable.

Gift Exchange

Sometimes we buy a gift that just doesn't work. Shop with confidence.
Items sent directly as gifts have the same right of exchange. I generally write a note to the gift recipient on the back of a business card to let them know.

During Christmas, the exchange period is extended to within 30 days of mail receipt when orders are marked as "gifts”.
For other gifts, such as birthdays, leave me a note or send a message to request extension.

Like all exchanges, items must be returned back in the shop in new & unused condition. The buyer or gift recipient is responsible for the shipping return according to normal shop policies.

Only the buyer can request a refund (within normal shop policies).
