I found a ginger cat mask on Etsy for a masquerade party I was invited to attend. The artist asked if I had a ginger tabby. When I confirmed that I did, she then asked me to send a photo of her. I happily sent her one because who doesn't like showing off photos of their fur babies? She then offered to paint my mask with ginger tabby's markings. How could I turn down such a personalized offer! It turned out wonderfully and I couldn't be happier with my mask of my cat's face! Thank you, Ann!
My sister got me started
I became involved in mask making when my sister called and said she had ordered 12 blanks and needed help. She quickly became bored but I was having fun so I kept it up, especially when I learned how easily I could raise money for my favorite charities.
Makes arts and crafts and paintings to raise money for food banks and charities that help animals.
Little baby kitty gives moral support and helps with crafts.
CeeCee inspects every box that comes into the house. Not sure what she is looking for but occasionally she finds it.
If you don't get that joke, ask your parents.
Seriously, he kills anything extraneous that gets into the arts and crafts: spiders, flys, moths and the rare mouse.
Thanks for stopping by and for reading my shop policies.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
However, purchases made from other states are probably subject to the buyer paying a use tax. Purchases made internationally will be subject to whatever import or other style taxes are applicable. Please check your national and local laws concerning imports before purchase as you will be subject to those customs fees and taxes.
*******You must ship to a confirmed address and sign for the package if I say so; or you may send a United States Postal Service money order. If you do not provide a confirmed address, I will refund your payment and Paypal will take a fee. I do not receive any part of that fee.
I do not begin work on custom items until they are paid for. Money orders must be received within 10 days.
Make certain that the shipping address you provide Etsy is correct according to the United States Post Office. If it is not, and Etsy tells me so, then your payment will be refunded and you must correct the problem and pay again.
I do not ship internationally, except in rare instances, that depend on several circumstances. I generally do not ship via Express mail except when a buyer (1) has a good and long feedback history (2) has a confirmed address and (3) I don't get bad vibes. I ship USPS Priority, except with the few international orders which may go first class. Supplies are generally shipped first class.
For US shipments I combine shipping and refund any unused shipping charges. You'll know what I paid, because the USPS will have it printed on the box. If you would like an exact quote on shipping for specific items, convo me and I'll set up a reserve.
ALL SHIPMENTS must be signed for if I say so. If you do not sign for the package and it is returned to me, I will refund the price of the mask, but not the shipping.
I do not ship FedEx or UPS, sorry.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you did not measure your face prior to purchase, please try the mask on immediately upon receipt. If it doesn't fit, just contact me to let me know you are returning it, and mail it IMMEDIATELY. I accept returns even if the only reason is because you have decided you don't like the mask as much as you thought you would, as long as it is returned IMMEDIATELY. If you don't return it immediately, don't expect a refund. In that event I consider that a buyer planned to wear it to an event, then get their money back.
Additional policies and FAQs
Out of respect for my fellow artists, following laws and my own standards of integrity, I must decline these kinds of commission/alchemy requests. I strictly adhere to my shop policy. If what you want does not fall into the categories of being identical to that by another artist, I am most certainly open to discussing your project. The project must have MY style of art but can be in colors the buyer desires.
Thanks in advance for your respect and understanding of my shop design integrity standards and policies.
I have no interest in advertising in magazines or websites "in trade" for my sending free items. I have no interest in loaning masks for use in movies, photoshoots, etc.
I do not sell wholesale. My masks take the same painstaking amount of time to construct whether I do one or 100. A seller who wholesales is making something that is not as exclusive as my masks.
I reserve the right to cancel any transaction if I suspect the buyer of anything that bothers me. If you are a buyer with less than 100% positive feedback, you'd better convo me before purchasing anything. You may thank Etsy's new policies of not showing the feedback left for a buyer for that new change in my policy.
I retain all rights on my art. Purchase of the art does not mean you may copy it. Seeing my designs online does not mean you may copy them. My designs are on file with the US Copyright office. I will sue you and have sued quite a few others already. Do not be fooled into thinking that because others appear to be copying me that you may copy my work--some have arranged for permission from me.
