These came in such adorable packaging that I could tell had lots of love and creativity put in to them and the buttons themselves were so very beautiful and I am absolutely in love with them! They also shipped SUPER fast! I ended up receiving them 2 days from when they were shipped. Such a great experience and such amazing products. Will definitely buy again in the future (:

About

Take a little walk into the wilderness....

As long as I can remember, I've been making things. I've been given the gift of inspiration... and ability to turn things that are in my head, into something I can hold.

I've been studying the many wonders of the wilderness for over 4 years now. I've always loved it, and studied it. But, in the last few years, my desire for knowledge has really grown! I was home schooled, and learning on my own has always been best for me. I look at things deeply, and study them to great extents. I'm working on writing a series of identification books! See, when I was very young, maybe 6 years old, I loved mushrooms. It was just something about them, that I just fell in love with. I went daily into the woods armed with a backpack of books and collection containers, to find them, and identify them. There were many, many mushrooms that I found, that I could not find in my books. It was then I knew... I have to write my own! I've been studying and photographing mushrooms ever since, to one day make a book with all my studies. Over the years, I've fell in love with many things in the forest. Lichen, moss, ferns, insects, reptiles, bones, wildflowers, trees... you name it. I'm going to make books on all of them. It's going to take a long time, and it already has... but I'm still working on it... and one day, I'll have it ready! It's an everyday study and a very deep learning process for me. It leaves no time for "normal" jobs. I have too much I want to do on my own!

To me, someone with a talent for something, should use it! If you're a painter, it's a waste to work as a cashier. I believe in sharing your gifts, and never letting them be wasted. If you're passionate about something, you should pursue it all the way! I have no desire for "normal" life, much less a normal job. I am me; an artist, and a lover of the wild... this is what I'm meant to do, what I was made for! My business started by selling things at festivals, and taking orders for artwork. I love traveling around and selling my stuff! Spreading my story, and my passion for nature! I set up an Etsy, so that I could reach beyond my little mountainous region, and into the world!

My products are mostly inspired by nature. In the forest, there are so many small things that so often get overlooked. The things no one notices, are the ones that catch my eye. I want to highlight those things, and open peoples eyes to a new way of thinking. If I can sell you a little lichen in a bottle, and the next time you go to the woods, you notice a species of lichen on a tree... I've done my job! Never let the small things go unnoticed!

Everything I make is high quality! I've done much experimenting to find what works best, and lasts! I'm not going to sell you something that will fall apart! I've tested my products myself, and I wouldn't sell you something I wouldn't personally use! I put much care and love into design, quality, and beauty of my products! Everything in my shop is a little piece of me. I put my heart into everything I do!

With my little shop, I hope to share the love and appreciation of nature that I have! My connection with nature... is one I wish to inspire others to seek, and to find. In the forest, I have become closer with God, the creator of it all... and he's led me to finding myself as well. I want to inspire people to get out and explore this beautiful planet he made for us, and to PROTECT IT!!! Take time to notice the small things in nature....sometimes, they are the most beautiful! Live free, and seek adventure! (:

Payment
If you order something custom, you must pay a deposit of 50% of the total cost. I will make a special listing for you. When your item is complete, I'll make a second special listing for you, for the 50% remaining cost, plus the shipping. This is to cover some of the materials I may need... and to ensure that you are serious about your purchase!
Shipping
Everything I make comes beautifully packaged! I put a lot of love into my creations, and I treat wrapping them no differently. Nothing is printed. All lettering is done by hand. Guaranteed to make you feel special; because you are! <3

Most items are "made to order". If your item is in stock, it will usually be mailed next day. If your item has to be made, it may take a few days.

I live in the mountains, and I don't go to town everyday. In Winter it may be a week before I can reach the post office, because these areas are not to be traveled in such conditions.


I'm willing to do any shipping you want, if you want something other than standard, message me!
Refunds and Exchanges
If something is damaged when you get it, simply send it back, and I will make you a new one!

I am not responsible for items lost in the mail!
Depending on the type of item you purchased, it may be able to be replaced.
One of a kind pieces cannot be replaced.
It's the risk you take purchasing a unique item online.
My artwork not reaching your loving arms is a icky thought,
but luckily this horror rarely occurs.

If you'd like to purchase insurance for your package, it can be added to your postage when placing your order. I would suggest this if you are buying a one of a kind, or items of high value. JUST IN CASE! :P

INTERNATIONAL:
Once something leaves my country, I have no control over it. I cannot promise your item will arrive to you safely. All of my packages are wrapped carefully to prevent damages during shipment. But if something gets completely misplaced, I can possibly replace your order, depending on item. Buyer pays shipping.

I DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS.
I make my living through art.
The money I make goes towards living.
Sometimes it's gone in a flash. :P
Additional policies and FAQs
I love doing custom orders! If you have an idea that you would like me to bring to life, please let me know! I will do my best to make you a piece perfect for you! (:
