Live a creative life!
Wine Cork Art, Star and Heart Bag Luminaries, Unique Jewelry. I've always been creating something. Whether its a beautiful room, a piece of jewelry, or a garden in the yard- its in my blood and spirit to create, and I so enjoy it! My store is full of one of a kind pieces along with a few I can make many of that have become favorites of many people. I come up with and want to try new things all the time, so there is no set inventory in my shop. Things will vary from month to month and season to season.
Pictured with me is my shop helper and constant shadow, Alex. Shes a 13 year old rescued black lab/dalmatian mix and my best friend & helper. I can honestly say shes been there for each and every creation in my store.
I live in Western WI, near the beautiful Mississippi River. My inspirations come from nature and travel, seeing and experiencing new things and the love of trying something new and different.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, I Am My Own Shop. I Do Everything From Designing And Making The Items, To Photos And Shipping.
I've always loved creating. I've been decorating, landscaping and making things for as long as I can remember. I'm so happy to have this little Etsy shop where I can bring my creations to life and share them with everyone!
One of my specialties is creating items that make wonderfully unique gifts, and most of the items I've made originally came about as gifts for family or friends. Many of my pieces are one of a kind- they cannot be created the same way twice, or may be the only one of that piece I make.
I love upcycling items, and often find something that I think would look amazing used in a different way or as something different than it was intended. Its great to be able to take something ordinary and turn it into a new work of art.
Accepted payment methods
Please make sure your address is correct in Etsy and Paypal, as this is where your item will be shipped to. If paying by paypal your address MUST be the same as in Etsy, or this can delay your shipment,
Both are included in the cost of shipping within the US.
I ship internationally on a limited basis with jewelry only. This is due to the high cost of shipping out of country. If you are interested in an item that is not listed as available for shipping internationally, feel free to inquire about shipping costs. Please note all items sent will be marked as merchandise, with the actual value listed. Buyer is responsible for any and all customs fees or duties. Duty and Customs fees are a tax from your country and must be paid by you. I have no control over how long an item takes to reach an international address due to the customs process. Please be prepared for an item to take several weeks to arrive, possibly more if customs takes a long time to clear your item. There is absolutely nothing a seller can do to hurry this process along.

**I reuse packing materials whenever possible. I try to be as environmentally friendly as I can.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you want to return an item, it must be mailed back within 1 week of its receipt. I must receive it in new, unused, undamaged condition. You will need to purchase tracking and insurance to cover the item being mailed back- this is to protect you from the item not arriving back to me or being damaged in the process. If I don't receive the item back, a refund cannot be issued. I will not refund or replace items broken on the return shipment to me, you must seek repayment from the shipper you used for the return.
Shipping charges are not refundable. That money goes to the post office or UPS for postage and I do not have it to refund.
***Custom orders cannot be returned.***
Items received as a gift can only be returned for a comparable exchange. I cannot offer refunds on items received as a gift. Etsy only allows us to refund a purchase to the original buyer.
Please feel free to ask any questions before ordering. I am always happy to provide more details, measurements, photos or any information necessary for you to make an informed purchase. Please know what you are purchasing before you place an order. I try to give as much information as possible on the item listing page and include photos that can be zoomed in on for a detailed look.
