Imagine-Learn-Create!

How did you start your shop? How does it all work?

I have spent over twenty years helping children and families deal with the after effects of trauma, abuse, and a multitude of life stressors. In order to help keep myself sane (or at least moderately so) I have always used creativity as a means to care for my mental health and also show my caring for others.

After years of hearing from friends and family members, "You really should sell your things!" I decided it was time to do just that and follow my dreams as an artist. I had always worried that if my art became a business, that perhaps it would lessen my creativity or enjoyment of the process. Happily, the opposite has been the case! Since deciding to officially launch Eden Design Garden, I have found myself flooded with inspirations and ideas for new techniques and projects.

I often describe myself as being both very right brain and left brain. So, I not only get a thrill out of "thinking outside the box" and coming up with creative and unique approaches to my art, but I also love learning about the technical side of the business, organizing and labeling my supplies, and tracking the data on spreadsheets.

I draw my inspirations from both typical and atypical sources. You know you've been hanging out at the art supply stores a lot when you can direct the other customers where to find things better than some of the employees. However, the same can be said regarding my frequent appearances at the local hardware stores and recycling centers.

I am particularly excited about the etched metal pieces I create and often incorporate many re-used and recyled parts into jewelry and artwork. I am always coming up with new things to use my metal etching techniques and foresee this being a never ending treasure trove of possibility.

There have been many "signs" that I am on the right path in following this dream. Though the positive feedback from people as they saw prototypes of designs has been invaluable and at times reassuring, some of the best feedback has been from my kids. When I first gave my daughter the prototype of the fleece and handknit dress to try on, she hugged it and then rolled on the floor saying, "I love it! I love it! I love it!" (followed by her younger brother asking if I would make one for him).

More recently my daughter was hanging out with me in the "studio" (Oh ya, a BIG thank you to my husband for agreeing to let me use our Master bedroom as a work space!) while we both worked on projects and I was practicing my "mommy patience" as she asked questions every few seconds. I was trying to figure out a particularly challenging technical aspect of a new jewelry design and was staring at the components and putting them together in my mind to see what might work. I saw my daughter looking at me and expecting another question, looked at her and said, "Yes?" Instead of a question, she stated, "I like watching you create things Mom. It's neat watching you figure out how to do things and then do them." Wow! All frustrations about being interrupted instantly vanished and I invited her over for a hug and to show her what I was doing.

I know that the drive to create is and always will be a part of who I am and it brings me joy to create something out of "nothing." However, it is statements like those from my children that help me to know that this business is already a success regardless of how much I sell (though of course the grocery store has yet to accept this form of currency!).

    My mother always referred to me as having MacGyver skills and I have continued to utilize those skills as I create new techniques in order to make the ideas in my head come to life as actual and beautiful creations.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 4, 2018
I love designing custom pieces of art, jewelry, and clothing for people (and sometimes for pets too)! I enjoy getting some basic pieces of information about what colors, textures, and designs that someone likes, and then adding that to my own ideas in order to create something fashionable, unique, comfortable and fun.

As noted in the payment section, the down payment on custom orders is non-refundable and the full amount is non-refundable after the item is completed. I am happy to send pictures of items while in process in order to receive feedback to help assure that you are happy with your item.

Shipping fees are non-refundable and return shipping fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
Payment
Custom orders under $50 require full payment before work will begin on the item. Custom orders over $50 require that a non-refundable fifty percent down payment be received by the seller before work will begin on the item. The balance of the payment will need to be paid before the item is shipped. Pictures of the item can be emailed throughout the design process so that input can be provided to the seller at any point. Once custom items of any amount are completed, items are non-refundable. If payment for any item is being made by check or money order, item will not be shipped until the payment is accepted by seller's bank.
Shipping
All shipping prices are listed with each individual item, with the exception of over-sized artwork, home accessories, and international orders. Shipping price(s) for artwork and other pieces will be determined based on where item is to be shipped to. If interested in purchasing a piece, please contact the seller to get an estimate on what shipping would be for your item(s). Orders shipped via Priority Mail will automatically have insurance coverage for a value of up to $100. If your order is being shipped via Parcel Post or International Shipping and you wish to have it insured, please contact the seller so that the cost can be added to the order.

Due to the wide variety of costs associated with international shipping, some items do not have international shipping prices listed. I am happy to ship internationally. Simply contact me with your address and I can provide an up to date quote on how much it would cost.

Unless already figured into the shipping costs prior to an item(s) being shipped, any additional customs fees or taxes are the responsibility of the buyer when they receive the item.

Shipping fees are non-refundable.
