Note from shop owner Hello, Etsy shoppers! I am away from the studio for a bit while I relocate north to the Oregon Coast. As we go through the process, I will be going between the two houses and will be able to fill orders, i just don't want to promise what I cannot quickly deliver. I will have my laptop with me and can answer messages, so please drop me a note if you have a question to LauraPallatin [!at] gmail.com.
Thank you!

About

Sharing happy art and inspiring joyous living

Art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I found it to be the escape and refuge when life offers up challenges. When I make art, nothing else exists for me. Each and every piece I create comes to life at some point in the process and looks back at me with love. I'll admit it, it's addicting.

I began making pretty things for my home in Long Beach, CA when I was a young married gal. I admired so many decorative things but didn't have the resources to buy them, so I made what I could. Eventually, I became interested in painting and got some wonderful support from an important artist friend of mine named Karen Wall-Garrison. She told me, "If you want to be an artist, make art!" Sounds simple but it was transformative for me.

I continued to work a full-time job, raise three children, and keep a house running while making art on the side until Fibromyalgia side-lined me. When I could no longer work a full-time office schedule, I became a massage therapist so I could set my own hours and help other people feel better. I loved it! Being a massage therapist is wonderful! Unfortunately, that only lasted a few years as my condition made it impossible for me to set and keep appointments.

Since my art has always been a happy, continuous theme in my life, it's not surprising that I turned to art at this time. Since I love painting happy art, I took to my car and now drive a joyous mural-covered Lincoln every where I go. Soon, my art was taking over my home, so I decided to share it with the world and what better place than Etsy?

Making whatever I want is definitely a fun part of expressing my creativity. But, so does helping other people's vision come to life. Therefore, inquiries for custom orders are welcomed!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I package every item very carefully, so damage should never be an issue. If, for some reason, there is a problem with damage, you will be refunded and I will follow through with the appropriate carrier once I receive confirmation of the broken item.
Payment
Items that are ready to ship will be sent to you as soon as I can confirm payment. I accept paypal and Etsy payment. Custom orders will be created just for you once we settle on exactly what you want in every detail.
Shipping
I am currently shipping decals to US customers only because the cost of sending such an inexpensive item internationally makes very little sense. I do send my handmade art items internationally and those items have international shipping options withing the listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each item here (with the exception of my printed decals) is completely handmade. It will have variations from "perfections" which are a trademark of handmade items. Please review all photographs carefully to make sure that my work is exactly what you're looking for. If you have any questions, or would like to see additional photographs, please convo me through Etsy.
