We know, you're probably tired of seeing these COVID-19 messages, but it has to be said... we are taking every precaution to create and package every single item with extensive safety measures. I am doing my very best to get orders out AHEAD of their official ship date as USPS is encountering many delays. Priority shipping is also available as an upgrade.

Many of my products represent a particular piece of my own life’s journey that I know others could also be living through- some happy and some not so happy.

Each item in my shop is designed and handcrafted with care by my own hands in my in-home “Sparrow” studio. I hope you find something that is a perfect treasure for a special person in your life or that an item is exactly what you’re looking for to fill a spot in your own home; but ultimately my hope is that they serve as a reminder that you are truly worth more than many sparrows.

How important is a name?

Many ask why I started my business and what’s behind the name. In 2010 my husband and I had been married for 6 years. Our greatest desire was to be parents and we had already been trying for 3 years. We were thrilled to find out that we were expecting, but that joy quickly faded to grief when we lost our baby. I am a person of deep faith, yet this loss rocked me harder than anything in my life had before and I retreated into severe depression. I truly lost myself in the turbulence of grief.

One day, a couple of months later, I was staring out my bedroom window and I happened to catch the sight of some little sparrows flitting in and out of our bird feeder and birdbath. For some reason something *clicked* in me and a verse came to my mind. “Are not 2 sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not a single one falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not fear, therefore, for you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:31.

I’m not saying that this experience made everything instantly better. BUT it did remind me that I wasn’t completely forgotten. I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t the only person in the world hurting, even though it seemed like it. I was worth more than I was feeling in that moment and so were the other hurting people out there. As ‘cheesy’ as it sounds I felt like something was ‘born’ in me in that moment- a calling, a ministry, something unique… I already had a small crafting business that I had given up temporarily with our loss, but I felt something new and the ideas started pouring out of me- I renamed my business after the verse that had first come into my mind and my mission statement is to remind others out there to truly KNOW THEIR WORTH and live like it!

It hasn’t always been easy- In 2013 we were once again elated to find out we were expecting and delved once more into grief when we lost this ‘sparrow’ as well. We could have (and honestly wanted to) give up, but we were sustained and trusted instead. We felt led to start the adoption process the next year and after that journey (full of ups and downs of its’ own), we welcomed our amazing son into our lives. I can’t imagine our life without him and can’t fathom what life would be like if we had given up instead of pressing forward.

My business has evolved over time, but the backbone of that verse still stands strong! Many of my products represent a particular piece of my own life’s journey that I know others could also be living through. All these years and products later, I still feel like it’s my ‘job’ to provide some measure of support, celebration, comfort, peace, solidarity and sometimes even just a simple smile to those who need it- on their brightest of days or darkest of nights. Each item in my shop is designed and handcrafted with care by my own hands in my in-home “Sparrow” studio. I hope you find something that is a perfect treasure for a special person in your life or that an item is exactly what you’re looking for to fill a spot in your own home; but ultimately my hope is that they serve as a reminder that you are truly worth more than many sparrows.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 13, 2019
I love to make handmade and heartfelt products that are unique and I strive to create special, high quality items. Ready to Ship items go out within 2-3 business days plus shipping time.

My custom creation time is 14 business days (photo cubes) plus shipping time (creation time-frame begins once payment has cleared either before noon on a given business day or the next business day if payment is received after noon). A photo cube cannot be added to my production queue until I receive the CONFIRMATION of all details which you will be asked to review via etsy convo once I receive your order :-)

**Custom creation time is seasonal and increases to 18 days in the "busy" season between October and January. If you need an item by a certain date, please be sure to order with plenty of time!**

If you have any questions about my products, please don't hesitate to ask before purchasing!

"...Do not be afraid. You are worth MORE THAN MANY SPARROWS." Matthew 10:31

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept exchanges and cancellations
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
Request a cancellation within: 2 hours of purchase
I don't accept returns
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
I inspect each item carefully as I package them. If an item arrives damaged and is irreparable, I do require photographic proof of the packaging and damage for insurance purposes, and in some cases, return of the item. An exact copy of the purchased item will be created and shipped back to you. No changes may me made to the order for replacement, unless the custom nature of the items make it impossible to recreate because of supply availability. If this is the case I will contact you to come up with a close alternative.

After a reasonable timeframe of 2 weeks has passed since the item was delivered, I can't replace a broken or damaged item. This is because I simply don't have the knowledge of how the product has been used/worn/stored/displayed after delivery.

CUSTOM ITEMS- I strive to make every item perfect and special and rely on your own choices to do this. Therefore, for all custom orders, I require requests in "writing" via email, etsy profile convo or message for reference when planning and designing your item. This is to protect myself as well as the customer. Custom items will not be refunded and are not returnable.


CANCELLATIONS:
Cancellation of any order will only be available in full if it has been 2 hours or less since the order was placed. If a cancellation is requested before the item has been sent, a restocking/relisting fee of $5.00 will be deducted from the total of the purchase. This is to cover time spent on my behalf to begin design elements of your order.
Payment
Payment methods accepted are paypal and direct checkout with major credit cards.

All items will be sent to the official address that YOU enter at checkout. If an item is being sent as a gift, please make sure that you enter the recipient's address at the time you purchase. Please make sure that if you use a PO Box as your "address" that your PO Box will either (1) Notify you that you have a package or (2) Is large enough to hold the package. I am not responsible for returned items or items that are lost at the PO because of insufficient Box size.

Cancellations will only be available within 2 hours of purchase. Cancellations will be subject to restocking/cancellation fee of $5.00. For custom orders, once payment has cleared and/or I have purchased materials or supplies to fulfill the order, there will be NO cancellations allowed.
Shipping
*******EFFECTIVE IN OCTOBER OF 2018- I will no longer be able to "change" an address if it is entered incorrectly. I will kindly request that you repurchase the item with the correct address entered when you checkout (after receiving a full refund). This is due to a high volume of orders and not being provided with the ability to officially save an address change when printing shipping labels. Thank you for understanding! PLEASE double and triple check your address when shipping items to yourself or as a gift! :-) *******

I take great care to make sure that my items are packaged securely and protected. I ship via USPS First Class and Priority Shipping, depending on the item's size and weight. Shipping Insurance (up to $50) and tracking information is included for free with each package and is factored into your shipping fee.

If I encounter an error with your address while printing the shipping label, the ship date may be delayed, so always double check your address! :-)

If USPS deems a package "undeliverable" or marks it as "insufficient address" the package may return to me. If this is found to be due to an incorrectly provided address, the purchaser will be fully responsible for paying for shipping again after providing the correct address. I cannot be held responsible for delays in receiving your item if this occurs.

I always do my best to combine shipping if you purchase several items- Please convo me ahead of time if you plan on purchasing multiple items so I can adjust shipping prices before you pay. I also make it my practice to refund overages for shipping!
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

At More Than Many Sparrows Boutique I take your personal data very seriously. In order to comply with the EU GDPR Law, we issue the following statement which we agree to uphold when you place an order with us.

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment method, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, change of address, for example), if you contact me directly.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law

• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. You may revoke your consent at any time and have the right in detail to request details of the information we keep.

Information sharing and disclosure:

I understand the importance of keeping personal data secure and safe and only share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as postal and delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on EU-US Privacy shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Etsy uses EU-US privacy shield and SSL to encrypt any credit payments.

Your Rights:

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
