I like to think of myself as a 21st century Neo-Renaissance Woman - my interests stretch far and wide and then some. I first started making items to give as gifts at the age of 6, when my grandmother taught me how to crochet, and I've been creating things in various mediums ever since. I graduated with BSc. degrees in Zoology and Psychology, plus an Art Minor, which I followed with 10 years of working in the field of Environmental Education, so many of my creations are inspired by the natural world. When I'm not ridiculously busy being a wife, mother, and friend, I carve out time to explore the various arts and crafts that inspire me: photography, sewing, collage, painting, etc. Here you will find the results of my journeys. Thanks for stopping by!

Well, hello and welcome to my Etsy shop! The goodies you find here are all handmade by myself in my clean, smoke-free home. Unless otherwise noted, items have already been made and are ready to be shipped.

Below you will find the dreaded but necessary "fine print" ;) - lots of useful information to help us both get the most out of this interaction. As always, if you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
My aim is for every customer to be entirely satisfied with their purchase, and I strive for the highest quality in materials, packaging, and shipment. Please keep in mind that these items ARE hand-made, and as a result, may not be "factory-precise".

If, however, you find a problem with your item that extends beyond this, please do not hesitate to contact with me through convo or email within 14 days of your receiving your order, and we can work out a solution. (If using email, please include your Etsy username and a link to the item you purchased).

Any return or exchange shipping fees are the *sole* responsibility of the buyer. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Currently I accept payment via PayPal only. Payment is expected in full via PayPal within 3 days of purchase, otherwise your order will be canceled, and item(s) re-listed.
Once payment is received, your order will be put together and shipped to the address appearing on your PayPal account within 5 days, or sooner. If you would like your order shipped to a different address, you must include a message in the "Note to Seller" portion of the check-out page.

Sending parcels via Canada Post is VERY expensive. To keep shipping costs to a minimum, items are generally small and shipped individually via standard small packet mail via Canada Post, unless otherwise requested in advance. As a result, if you order multiple items, they will likely come in separate packages.

Buyers are responsible for any and all duties, taxes and/or customs charges that may be incurred for crossing borders (provincial or international). I am not responsible for any delays due to customs. Shipping insurance and tracking available by request only and for an additional fee.

If the actual shipping cost is less than you paid (by greater than $2, to cover packaging materials), you will be refunded the difference. If the actual shipping cost is more than you paid for - you win!

NOTE: Buyers in the Calgary, AB area can avoid shipping fees by arranging for either pick-up or (for a small fee) delivery of orders. Convo me for details.
