About

The View Behind The Workbench

I've joked about customizing from a shoebox before, but in all honesty my art tends to take over the house! Every so often I corral it back onto the workbench, but the chaos invariably spreads.

But half the fun is getting messy and I love trying out new mediums and tweaking old methods. My goal is to have every item in the Etsy shop broken down step by step so folks can play along at home if they like!

2016 Pricing Changes
-------------------------------
This year I am officially abandoning my chase of a profit margin and am dropping prices to match the new outlook! After a bit of a sea change, I realized I love my day job and I love making art more when I'm not trying to make money from it. So instead of trying to make a living, I'm just trying to keep the art horde stocked.

Thus prices have had the 'Labor' element removed and are now set at 2 x Materials Cost (so the item will pay for itself and a friend).

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
I take payments primarily through PayPal, but I can work with other methods if you need. Just send me a message and we can sort something out! :)
Shipping
I offer a few different shipping methods, but if there is one you want that's not listed, just give me a holler. I normally ship in the next day or so, depending on how chaotic my workdays are.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to take multiple enlarged photos of every item and am more than happy to provide additional photos, so I don't do full refunds. This is based on the fact that the postage costs more than the products and it's not cost-effective to return things. However, if you really don't like your item we can work something out! :)
