This is just the greatest card...love your humorous touch to your watercolor. I have a friend who is called "Bear" who is undergoing radiation therapy and this black bear with the blue overtones will be just perfect to pick up his spirits. Thank you...

Imagination + paint + joy = Happy Soup Shoppe

I've been making art all my life. Working as a graphic designer to earn my serious money in the serious world got to be too serious after about 25 years.
My adoration of cats and mermaids leads me to want to make art full time. I have a family who supports this because it makes me happy! My art life and your support allows me to be at home with my little boy. My husband and I homeschool him, or maybe I should say HE educates US.
I make art in the wee hours and am grateful for any creative time I can squeeze in.

    I am happiest when making a mess in my tiny work space. Come and see what I paint! A working artist all my life, I am a homeschooling mother of my joy-bomb 8 year old son. See what I have made!

Welcome to my world. HappySoupShoppe is an adventure based on deep respect for my surroundings and my absolute passion for making art. The spectrum of what I create is wide and varied because I find myself curious about lots of mediums to work with and images to paint. I hope you wander around in my shoppe a bit and find something that makes you smile. If you are wondering about something, please ask. Have fun!

We accept paypal. Art will remain for sale until payment is received. Items will ship within 5 business days of payment. An order may be cancelled as long as the art has not shipped.
Being in the mail art world for years I've learned a few things. The best way to avoid a mishap is to package your treasure to be damage proof. I want every customer to be thrilled, but have no control over what happens once the art is in the postal system. If something awful occurs, I will not be responsible. Sounds harsh I know, please do keep reading though.
I will ship via US Postal Service. Insurance options and fast delivery definitely make FEDEX and UPS a great option also.
SHIPPING IN THE U.S. - Priority mail is best unless requested otherwise. Shipping prices include delivery confirmation for US orders, that way we can track if needed. Insurance is a good option, if you choose I will add that to the shipping cost.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - I am happy to ship overseas. First class is much less expensive BUT there is no way to track or locate a lost or delayed International First Class Shipping package.
We can send your item International Priority Shipping which is much more expensive but does offer some extra services like tracking or insurance. Those options are up to you, please let me know at time of purchase. If an Internationally shipped package is lost or delayed I cannot be responsible for items or shipping costs.
That being said, we have sent items all over the planet for years and have never had a package lost. Packages can be delayed, even as long as four months. If you are an international buyer, please be patient.
PACKAGING- I'm relatively green and concerned about my environment. I enjoy using previously used packaging but still sturdy shipping boxes and materials. If you request new packaging a fee will be added.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not thrilled with your new art, please let me know right away. I will do everything in my power to turn that frown upside down:)
