PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION IN THE LISTING YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING AND READ THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER.


NEW TO ETSY? Here's a helpful guide to making a purchase: http://etsy.me/G2i2S


**************CUSTOM ORDERS AND PRODUCTION TIMES************
I love hearing your ideas as it helps me stay on top of trends but if you are wanting to order an item that I have not created yet, please provide me with as much detailed information as possible to create your items. Please avoid using words such as amazing, spectacular, beautiful, elegant, etc. when describing what you are picturing in your mind because those are subjective words and, unfortunately, I am currently without my mind reading capabilities. ;). Instead, please send pictures, color samples or swatches, links to Internet sites, etc. If I can't see what you see, I may not get it right. CUSTOM ORDERS ARE NON REFUNDABLE.

CAKE STANDS AND CANDY JARS: no custom orders at this time unless your time frames allow for 1-2 month production time. In the cooler months drying times require the full 2 months. If you need it now please visit my shop sections for ready to ship items. Ready to ship items may take 3-5 days. I don't go to the post office everyday and it takes up to an hour on some items to package and get ready for shipping so please understand that it may be slower processing than my other items.

HAND PRINT ART, FOOT PRINT ART AND FINGERPRINT GUESTBOOKS: I will create a pencil sketch for your approval when necessary. I can have this ready to ship in a matter of days if needed for no additional charge (other shops call this "rush order"). I do not rush orders. Please place the need by date in the notes to seller at checkout if you need it sooner that the 2-3 weeks stated in my listings.

BLOCK SETS, WOOD DOOR HANGERS, WOOD WALL PLAQUES, WOOD YARD SIGNS: many of my wood pieces are cut and sanded and ready to be painted. In the cooler months drying times are longer but if you need something quickly please contact me beforehand. I may be able to have this ready to ship in a matter of days if needed for no additional charge (other shops call this "rush order"). I do not rush orders. Please place the need by date in the notes to seller at checkout if you need it sooner that the 2-3 weeks stated in my listings.

BURLAP BANNERS AND BURLAP DOOR HANGERS: custom items are time consuming but I have many of my existing items already cut and ready to paint. Please allow up to 2 weeks for the custom banners but existing items can be ready to ship in a matter of days if needed for no additional charge (other shops call this "rush order"). I do not rush orders. Please place the need by date in the notes to seller at checkout if you need it sooner that the 2-3 weeks stated in my listings.

****************** REFUNDS******************
I will issue a full refund if items are returned in good condition. Damaged or used items will not be accepted. You must contact me within 3 business days of receiving your items to qualify for a return.

I believe in treating others the way I'd expect to be treated. When issues arise I always ask myself what resolution I would want if I was in this situation. I will always be fair, respectful and professional when trying to resolve issues. In your conversation to me I would appreciate professional, courteous correspondence and pictures attached to show condition of items. I will then instruct you on how to return the package to me. If you do not re-package items as carefully as I have and damage occurs in transit, I will deduct the value of that item from your refund so please re-package with care. You have 10 days to return items to me from the date you contact me.

****************SHIPPING INFORMATION************
I take special care in packaging my items - it may not always look pretty but it works. I double box and bubble wrap what I feel are the most delicate pieces and I limit the amount of pieces per box resulting in higher shipping prices when multiple boxes are necessary. Block sets and glass jars will travel together in one box as it reduces shipping prices. Combined shipping will be reflected in your order at checkout. I package these items so they don't break so please look carefully through your box for all items.

***Please understand that preparing jars and cake stands for shipping takes a long time - up to one hour in some cases- and the bubble wrap and kraft paper gets costly because I need to use so much of it on each order. Shipping prices, therefore, are high on these items because of time and cost of materials to ship. I'm a one woman shop and don't get Walmart kind of discounts on shipping items or at the USPS counter. That is the price one pays to get one of a kind, handmade items. I know you won't find these items at any large department store. Of course, if you are near me you can avoid these shipping costs if you choose to pick up items. I am also willing to meet in nearby areas like Dallas, Garland and Plano.

* Blocks and other items may seem costly because anything over a pound must ship first class instead if parcel post within the US, otherwise that would be less expensive. I don't make the rules and I'm not Amazon.com who has contracts with shipping companies and can offer free shipping. Thanks so much for understanding.

Bubble wrap may cause imprints on painted surfaces so I will avoid using it directly on some items. Cake stands, cupcake stands and candy jars will always ship USPS priority service. That includes tracking. All other items usually ship priority service. I try my best at sending shipping notifications with tracking numbers but my clerical side falls to wayside when I'm busy working on orders. Please contact me if you do not receive your tracking numbers and I will promptly reply.

Once items are handed over to the mail system, I can not be held responsible for the treatment of your package. Sometimes I think they just threw a box out their car like a newspaper. That hasn't happened often and I loooooove my mail people (shout outs to Shelly, Rhonda, Brian, and Reggie) but know I will work with you to resolve issues if someone happened to go postal on a package. Please refer to my refund policy above.

*****************ABOUT ME************************
I'm a high school English teacher by day and a party crafter by night. Being mom to 4 amazing children - all under the age of 9 - is what has driven me to supplement my income. I'm hoping to transition into becoming a full time Etsy crafter in the future and have extra time for my kids as well as doing something I love. Many of the images you see will include themes from my children's birthday parties. I'm also kind of crazy about the holidays. All seasonal items are things I have up in my own home. I do not create anything I wouldn't buy myself and try to keep items affordable and include personalization whenever possible - huge fan of all things personalized!!! I like to participate in local craft fairs and am a big Pinterester, hosting a local Pinterest night once a month with some really talented ladies. Thanks so much for visiting my shop. I appreciate your patronage and for reading all of this you'll be rewarded with a coupon! Simply enter code "Ireaditall" at checkout for 10% off your purchase.

About

From murals to canvas

I've always enjoyed painting and have experimented with different materials and techniques. What I love best is acrylic on canvas. I began painting murals in 2004 for children's rooms and playrooms but the time involved with these large pieces was cutting into my time with my kids. In 2011, with the birth of my fourth child, money became tight and I decided I needed to try something else. That's when I opened up shop on Etsy. I can now create my art - with my kids helping out - and use them often as hand and foot models. I use this shop to show my kids how a small business works, to teach them work ethic and the value of hard work. I even get a little math lesson in there from time to time.

Many of the pieces in my shop match each other and can be combined as a set for any holiday or occasion. I love matchy and themed decor and figure I'm not the only one. Much of my inspiration comes from my kids' themed birthday parties and keepsakes that we create together for the grandparents such as the handprint and footprint art.

Moving forward, I'm hopeful this will become my full time job. Until then, however, I will continue working full time as a high school English teacher and working on my Etsy shop nights and weekend. I love working with my students and sharing my love of literature and the English language. I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature from Florida International University in Miami and a Master's degree in Education from Graceland University in Iowa.

Refunds and Exchanges
****************** REFUNDS******************

I believe in treating others the way I'd expect to be treated. When issues arise I always ask myself what resolution I would want if I was in this situation. I will always be fair, respectful and professional when trying to resolve issues. In your conversation to me I would appreciate professional, courteous correspondence. Please keep in mind that Etsy shops are like booths at a craft fair and we pay Etsy, the website, for the "space" to sell our home made items. Gifts by Gaby is made of one person - me. I cut, sand, paint, draw, glue, nail, screw, stage, photograph, package, and more by myself. It's hard work and I may make mistakes but I love what I do! For more information about me please visit my about page.

Why purchase on Etsy?
The advantages of buying on Etsy is that you are able to change colors, wording, materials, etc, and make your purchase unique and one of a kind. You are not able to do the same at most chain stores .

Also, if you purchase something at a chain store they won't refund your money without you returning the product first so understand that I will need product to be returned if you are looking for full refund. They won't go to your home to pick it up, either. With that said, I don't want you to feel dissatisfied with any purchase on this site or with any challenges that arise with the purchase of an item from my shop specifically. And I want to resolve this as fairly as possible for both of us.

tI will be unable to send you a new stand without purchase of a new one or receipt of broken item. Please let me know if you think this is a fair resolution.and pictures attached to show condition of items or to note any concerns.
I will then instruct you on how to return the package to me. If you do not re-package items as carefully as I have and damage occurs in transit, I will deduct the value of that item from your refund so please re-package with care. You have 10 days to return items to me from the date you contact me.

I will issue a full refund if items are returned in good condition. Damaged or used items will not be accepted. You must contact me within 3 business days of receiving your items to qualify for a return. Please do not throw away the box or its contents until you have communicated with me first.
Additional policies and FAQs
My goal is to make you happy so you can keep coming back and telling others to shop with me. I want you to feel condident you are getting a good product and great service. Please convo me with any questions or concerns you may have. I will do everything I can to make you 100% satisfied with your purchase. Please do not leave negative feedback without allowing me the opportunity to help.
