A little about me

For as long as I can remember, I have always been crafty. There is a long running joke in my family, that when I was born I came into this world triumphantly clutching a paintbrush!

While GluePaperScissorsShop is a relative newcomer to the online store scene, I'm not a newcomer to art. But it wasn't until my son Noah was born that I decided to turn my passion into a business.

Long before Noah, I attended university to study painting and drawing. I wanted to express myself in a wide variety of mediums and school provided me with the teachings and practice I needed to get there.

Life has its unexpected twists and turns, and mine is no different. I did not graduate with my degree in art, but rather I found myself in an exciting new career in visual merchandising. I fell in love with this new job, but it took up the time I would have otherwise spent being crafty.

Fast forward to my sons birth. I was on maternity leave when I felt the itch to be crafty again. I suddenly found myself filled with creative energy and for the first time in far too long, I had the time to put that creativity to use.

I was inspired to create for him; I wanted to commemorate his birth with a truly personal and unique portrait. After searching for something to buy I realized the gift I wanted needed to be created by me, not bought at a store. This insight led to my very first peg doll portrait.

Soon after my sons’ portrait, I had friends and family members requesting similar portraits that featured their families, and I was only too happy to oblige.

To me these portraits are so much more than wood and paint, they are custom worlds; a story flash frozen in time.

Smiling families, happy memories, and a sense of love that I have the honor to memorialize. I feel very lucky to have this platform to share my art with the world and I am very grateful if you would consider one of my custom portraits for your family.

Frequently asked questions
Can I customize my order?

Of course! To understand how the process works, please read the answer to the question ‘Once I have purchased, what info do you need? How do I get that info to you?'

How detailed can you get?

Very detailed! There are some limitations of course, but I do my best to capture as much detail as possible.

What skin colours can you do? Can you do mixed people?

I can paint all skin colours! Any ethnicity is doable, including mixed people.

Do pets count as people?

Yes they do! A pet is a doll and I charge by doll. Pets also require lots of detail work because of their features and fur, so it does count as a doll.

Once I have purchased, what info do you need? How do I get that info to you?

Once you’ve made your choices and put the purchase through you'll receive an email from ETSY with next steps, including how to download the DETAILS SUBMISSION FORM (a document that has divided the necessary information I require into organized categories for your convenience).

The information I require is:

Name of the person(s) or pet(s)

Age

Breed (only applicable for pets)

Hair colour

Eye colour

Face photos

Body photos

Do I need a group photo or can I send individual photos?

I do not need a group photo of the people I am painting. Individual photos of each person is perfect! After you put through your order and you are ready to send me details, I will need:

Name of the person(s) or pet(s)

Age

Breed (only applicable for pets)

Hair colour

Eye colour

Face photos

Body photos

How do revisions work?

Once I am done I will send you photos through ETSY for you to review.

When I am done I will send you a photo of your order for approval. If you’d like any adjustments made, please send me a consolidated list of changes and I will get on making them right away! I include one round of free revisions. Once revisions are complete the dolls get varnished and shipped. You will not get another photo unless requested in advance.

Dolls get glued into the frame if you added a shadowbox to your order.

Once you have approved the dolls I will package and mail out the order. The order comes with tracking. I will send you the tracking number so you can watch your dolls make their way to your doorstep!

How long until I get my peg portrait?

Current turn around time is approximately 20 weeks (from when the photos and details are sent) and varies based on volume of orders. I am just one person and I put a lot of time and love into each doll I paint. Quality is extremely important to me as I give each doll all of my effort and won’t consider it finished until I am very happy with the end result.

Will I get my order in time for Christmas?

Orders placed before October 1st will arrive in time for Christmas. Orders placed after the cut off deadline will be attempted to be done and delivered in time but not guaranteed.

Covid 19 Delays

Due to Covid 19 turn around time may be extended beyond the estimated 20 week turn around. As thing change and progress I may find myself out of childcare for my boys therefore my productivity may slow down.

If you need the item for a specific date or event please contact me directly before placing an order to make sure it can be done in time.
