Announcement   My name is Esther. I'm a young adult, and I'm here to share my creative works. I love to make things with my hands. I seem to always want to learn a new trick or a new medium. As of right now, I dabble in ceramic pottery, I am learning crocheting and trying to brush up on knitting. I embroider like a mad person sometimes, mostly because it's fun and makes for totally personal flares of style. And of course, I make dollhouse miniatures. Within that category, I focus on making dollhouse miniature food, trying to make it as life-like as possible. It's oh, so terribly fun and challenging! I get great enjoyment out of my handiwork, and I hope that everyone who sees my work does too!

I am trying to earn supplemental income to further my personal education and life goals. So know that every bit helps, and it is all for a great cause!

Each item I post is made by ME; completely hand-crafted, no moulds or pre-made pieces. No second or third parties. I make them in my home, and sell them here. Each piece is unique and delicate and detailed. I make pieces as life-like as I am able.

I am willing to take requests, and I relish feedback, communication, and suggestions! I would be very interested in hearing what you would like to share!
Come look around, and tell all your friends!
Thank you for your time and visit!

Hello! Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop! I hope you enjoy yourself very much while you're here. That, after all, is the reason I have this shop.

About Me.
My name is Esther. I'm a twenty-something young lady, trying to make it in the world. I currently live in Aspen, Colorado. Yes, I said Aspen. But, before you go assuming what it must be like, just know that it's not JUST the "Rich and Famous!" that live here. Not be a long shot. There are some normal people here. The year-rounders. We live here all year. We play outside when we have the time. We all work very hard to pay bills, buy food, and save for the slow seasons. It is hard work to live here, and it's harder work to earn here. All that to say, there are plenty of challenges. Still, I am here. It is a marvelously beautiful country, I am part of a great community of people, and it's pretty wonderful being here.

I opened my shop here at Etsy to try to earn some income. Like I've said, it's tough here sometimes. Hence, this wonderful website! Seriously, let's all give Etsy a hand! Bravo Etsy! Anyway, I hope to use earnings from my shop to fund and to further personal education and life goals of mine. Not being able to fund those things with the status quo in this town can be a huge factor in stagnancy, if one is not careful. So, I'm branching out. I'm learning as I go, and trying to get my creativity out there!

I really love making things. I love making things with my hands; I always seem to be wanting to learn a new skill/medium. I dabble in crocheting, knitting, ceramic pottery, embroidery and polymer clay dollhouse miniatures.

I make everything with my own hands. I will buy some materials and then use them to make my art in my home. No paints, templates or knock-offs. Everything in my shop is hand-crafted by myself. That ensures that each item is unique, and that each item is on made with a purpose! So, please! Explore my shop, and bring some friends! I hope everyone who stops by and visits has a wonderful time! New items coming soon!

If, however, you are not interested in a replacement and would simply like a refund, I will refund your order's cost to you, fully. Please be aware that I only refund fully in cases of damage, not a normal return.
(NOTE: Since each of my pieces are hand-made, there will definitely be some variation in the case of a replacement. I shall work at making the differences minimal, as I am a detail freak. But there WILL be slight differences.)

Additional policies and FAQs
Interested in custom orders?
Great! Sign on up! I'm up for them myself!
Do feel free to share a custom order. And just to encourage great communication and healthy expectations, let me share a few things.
*Please be aware that each person's perspective/interpretation of communicated data is very unique indeed.
*Within a custom request, the more pieces of information are given, and the more specific they are, THE BETTER! Please be clear, concise and SPECIFIC!
* Please be aware of the type of shop I have, and please try to match the type of work I'm displaying there. I feel like it's a given, but I like to make it easy and friendly and clear. For example, if you are not noticing a certain kind of item, say human figurines or miniature pets, it is probably because I don't make them. <smile>
* If you'd like to custom order a miniature-sized example of a real, life-sized item, pretty -pretty -please -with -a -cherry -on -top send me some visual aids and references! <smile> For example, if you want me to make you a miniature steak and potatoes meal, send me some pictures of the kind of meal you have in mind, and the type of look you have in mind. NOTE: If you don't have just ONE specific way you'd like it to look, and you just want some steak and potatoes, let me know that too! I can work with that as well.
*Finally... Please be aware that every medium has its limits! While I'm striving to grow in skill as an artist, know that it's a process, and never once have I ever claimed to be able to execute any idea ever conceived, and that perfectly!

~Those are just some friendly reminders, from me to you, my valued customers!~


Since I am the person who makes everything in this shop, I greatly value feedback!
