This one really shines!! I LOVE these paper magnets. The flowers are unique and lovely. I have three above my classroom door where they brighten up the putty-colored metal doorframe. Thanks so much!! :)

About

Paper is my happy place.

Back in 2010, I was sick and tired. Literally. I was 20 years old and stuck at home treating a couple chronic illnesses, and boy was I bored. One of my sisters had left a pack of colorful cardstock lying around, so I found some scissors and glue and started keeping myself busy. First I made cards to send to my friends back at school. Then I needed envelopes to mail the cards, so I made some envelopes. Then I realized that I had way too many cards, so I listed some on Etsy.

Etsy became my daily routine. For the next two years, I filled my shop with colorful paper products and loved every minute. My happy place expanded to include color and I became very interested in color psychology and design for human health. Personally, I am happier and more energized when surrounded by bright colors, and my hope is that the items I make will offer a little spot of happiness and energy to your day, too.

In 2012, my health had greatly improved and I went back to school, so I closed my Etsy shop. I had no idea how much I would miss it and I am incredibly happy to be making colorful things out of paper again. My husband, Neil, is an architectural designer and his input and ideas have shaped my own artistic development, and he has yet to tire of me asking him what he thinks of a new product or a set of photos. Of my four sisters, two are active on Etsy, including the one who left that pack of cardstock laying around years ago (yes, I've thanked her). That's Emily, creator of Sensationery ( www.etsy.com/shop/sensationery ), and Anna is the creator of Coppleshop ( www.etsy.com/shop/coppleshop ). Our sisters Martha and Gracie are also highly creative and talented, and we try to convince them to open shops of their own all the time. We've all collaborated on many projects together, and are planning for more in the future.

Thanks for being here! I am so happy to see you.

Everything in this wee little shop is made completely by hand and is therefore one-of-a-kind. My favorite color changes every day so there are all kinds of tones and schemes going on here. If you see anything that would be perfect if only I had made it in hot pink (or whatever your current favorite color is) please contact me to set up a custom order. I can usually get close to recreating each item in my shop, although there will be slight differences, but please let me know if you have something specific in mind.

To get in touch with me, please email me at copplestonecolormill [!at] gmail.com or through Etsy's convo system.

Payment
In addition to payments made directly through Etsy, I also accept PayPal, personal checks and Etsy gift cards.

PayPal accepts both credit and debit cards, even if you don't have a PayPal account.

Shipping
Items will be shipped within three to five business days of your approved payment, unless otherwise stated within a listing.

All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, so international customers should expect delivery within two weeks of a completed purchase and US customers can expect delivery within 2 - 3 business days from the time of shipment.

If you need shipping to be rushed, please contact me before or immediately following your purchase. Additional fees will be your responsibility and will be added either to your un-purchased item(s) or to a separate "shipping only" listing you will need to purchase.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the handmade and one-of-a-kind quality of my products, production times might make it impossible for certain items to ship in less than 3 - 5 business days from the time of your completed purchase.

Shipping costs vary depending on the item. Extra charges may apply when ordering multiple items (look at the "With Another Item" column in an item's shipping info).

International customers are responsible for all customs fees, duties and import charges that may apply at the time of delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
Paper products are delicate and it's important that they are in tip-top shape for gift giving, letter sending, decorative activities or whatever your plans for your purchase may be. For that reason you ought to be picky but I would also be hesitant to resell anything after an exchange.

Please contact me at copplestonecolormill [!at] gmail.com within five business days of receiving your order if you feel an exchange or refund is necessary.

If you decide to go through with the exchange or refund I must (MUST) receive the item back within two weeks of when you first contacted me (special arrangements/exceptions will be made for international customers). The customer is responsible for all shipping fees when returning an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that exact shades of color in product images may vary in appearance from monitor to monitor.
