I wish I could say that these items were worth the wait but they were not. I originally ordered two items from this shop (dragonfly and butterfly sun catchers) on Jul 5, 2016 and just received them today (August 25, 2016). While I recognize that the shop owner is having difficulties as a result of a car accident, I think that waiting seven weeks was simply ridiculous particularly since the funds came out of my account in a very timely fashion. I contacted the shop owner on three occasions to find out where my items were and was ultimately told that they would be shipped out on August 5th, 2016. When I received my package today, the shipping label showed that the label was not created until August 12th, 2016. Not good customer service at all.

My Tree of Life is beautiful - exactly as we discussed. It is for a present for my friends' ruby wedding anniversary and I think they will love it. Thank you, Sharen.

About

Art is Healing, healing is art, jagged shards of colour coalesce into living glowing panels of art , and funky fun creatures to populate your home.

This venture into art making as a way of life all started as an effort to re-make my life after a serious work injury and accident left me unable to move without severe debilitating pain. I was forced to change fields, and rethink what I was doing with my life.

Always the optimist, I knew something would come up. To distract myself, I turned back to my art, learning a new craft, Stained Glass, and began making pieces for family and friends. I apprenticed with another shop to learn more advanced techniques.

When the pieces started to sell, I was persuaded by friends to set up a website, and open an Etsy shop. As things sold more, I moved from my home studio to my new big studio in downtown Victoria. Now, I work full time as a stained glass artisan, selling online at Etsy, and here in Victoria at the Inner Harbour at my outdoor booth. Life is exciting again, thanks to the support of friends and family, most especially Glen.
