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.

Welcome to our world. HappySoupShoppe is a partnership adventure based on deep respect, friendship and our absolute passion for making art. You'll see art from both of us. After a few visits maybe you'll get a feel for our style. The spectrum of what we create is wide and varied, from art dolls to paper maché bowls. But our creations have a unified purpose, all tied together by an excited love for what we do, a deep respect for our materials, the creative process and each other. We hope you wander around in our 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 we've learned a few things. The best way to avoid a mishap is to package your treasure to be damage proof. We 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, we will not be responsible. Sounds harsh we know, please do keep reading though.
We 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 we will add that to the shipping cost.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - We are 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 us know at time of purchase. If an Internationally shipped package is lost or delayed we cannot be responsible for items or shipping costs. We apologize for this but must make it our policy.
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-We're two women who are relatively green. We enjoy using previously used but still sturdy shipping boxes and materials. If you request new packaging a fee will be added.
Refunds and Exchanges
We suggest insurance for shipping. This helps us all in case your package is sadly lost or damaged. We suggest tracking so we all know if something is lost. If you are not thrilled with your new art piece, please let us know right away. We will do what we can to help you be happy.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are more than welcome. Please write to us with your ideas. We will discuss creation time and price.
