A creative mind never stops thinking or doing!
Back in 1999 when I got engaged (before the days of online shopping) I was overwhelmed with all that went into planning a wedding and all the running around in the car to the bridal stores for everything for my wedding and located soley by phone book listings and found by using a traditional map. That really wasn't that long ago (chuckle.)
On my breaks from work I would sit in my car actually creating many of the things that went into my wedding because I refused to pay such high prices for cheaply made items from overseas for my once in a lifetime event.
Then in November 2000 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and all I could think was "what if." I was working in a fast paced chain restaurant until 2011 that I could no longer perform my duties in due to the extreme fatigue and anxieties this condition has given me. So fast forward a bit.....
I do this because I love to be creative. I don't want to stop doing things. I want to feel that my talent is not going to waste despite my condition and its unpredictable course. Doing this on Etsy has allowed me, a person with physical limitations continue to stay "active" in the mind and keep dexterity in my fingers.
I'm not looking to make a million dollars. I just want to do this to make something special for your wedding, while in turn keeping me busy, and believing in keeping the cottage industry alive. I too support local business people when I can. Its a much friendlier way of doing things, especially in this fast paced world.
Thank you for taking a moment to read how my Etsy vision came about
Owner, I Do It All!
I LOVE that I have found my niche in creating wedding items for such memorable days for brides. Therapy for my mind and dexterity since being diagnosed with MS in 2000

International buyers should allow 3-6 weeks for delivery via first class international service. I can not be held responsible for customs delays or transit times. While most of the time they will arrive between 3-4 weeks, I have had them take up to 6 weeks- weather delays, inspections delays, mis routed, etc. Countries listed have tracking available and the local post office should be contacted regarding further inquiry on delivery time. Import taxes/duties if required are buyers responsibility and should be researched before purchase commitment; every country has different policies. This is a commerce site and therefore it is automatically marked as merchandise with the actual merchandise value when the label is created.
For international orders I use first class airmail. Priority mail international is an option but very expensive. Customs charges and delays in shipping through customs inspection are to be understood as possibilities for foreign buyers.
Weddings are time sensitive and some times of the year are busier than others- especially March through October. I make all these items with pride and attention to detail. Always plan on the longest time period stated in my handling period for each option. You are all important to me so I have upgrade options to suit your timing needs
RUSH PROCESSING: You can get bumped to a higher point on the list of orders to make and ship within 5 business days instead of up to 2 weeks with the standard handling period. Recommended for those 2-3 weeks away from the wedding date
RUSH PROCESSING & RUSH SHIPPING: Highly and strongly recommended if you are 1-2 weeks to the date you expect it in hand. Please also send me a message on your order with the date expected to be delivered and I will reply with an acknowledgement so you know that I am aware. This way we have made contact specifically with each other regarding your rush status and I can alter my personal schedule to accommodate your request.
EXPRESS not listed during checkout, but available depending on my personal schedule. For items needed in less than a week. Please contact me directly to make sure I can accommodate the request and for rush processing/express shipping costs and directions to a custom request order link specific to your needs.
