I feel like the previous review mimics my case exactly: Ordered September 12. Never received. Messaged the owner, she offered to reship. Still haven't received. Messaged shop again a few days ago. Haven't heard anything. It's been over a month. Responses often take several days and are often incomplete.

About

Truly a form of therapy! For both of us.

My son has autism and ADHD. I as his mom also have ADHD... some days it seemed we'd never be on the same page...and nobody would help...

When I couldn't make sense of the world when I was younger I crafted. I didn't have to think, or talk to anyone, and there were no rules to follow....it was intimate time spent alone, doing something for no other reason than I COULD.

From 10 months on my world with my son was strained...granted we both tried REALLY hard to makes sense of each other....it seemed like a never ending struggle... every time I thought I was a step ahead he'd throw me a curve... I had no clue how to relate to him.....

so he related to me....he had his first art kit with glue and safety scissors before he could talk. He loves anything that leaps his hands busy....and is VERY gifted in numbers and math.

We really hit it off...there were entire crafting marathons in our home.....although dinner didn't make it to the table on time, our house sure became beautiful....and so did our relationship!!!

It's been a few years now and we're best buds.... truly inseparable (except for school) and we work hard to enjoy extra time together thru the income we make in this shop,

I would not trade this life I have now in for anything in the world.

PLEASE KNOW THAT OUR PRODUCTION AREA FOR SKINCARE AND ANYTHING THAT TOUCHES YOUR BODY IS STERILIZED AND WE FOLLOW A STRICT ROUTINE OR GLORIOUS MASKS AND GLOVES WHEN HANDELING ALL OF IT.... MY SON DOES NOT MAKE CANDLES, OR POUR BOTTLES OF STUFF BUT GIVEN THE CHANCE HE LOVES TO MEASURE STUFF...AND PUT THE LABELS ON EVERYTHING. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION IS PARAMOUNT TO US!

    I started this company as a means for my son to learn, and flourish. He's autistic and also has adhd. When help wasn't available to us thru traditional means, we got crafty and grew and healed together!

the problem is once I turn it over to the post office...it is out of my hands. I can't be responsible for them failing at their job. The best thing for you to do is inquire at your end. My shop is not responsible for items once they go into the mail. I don't work for ups or canada post.

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. We love custom requests and have a broad range of interests.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service and product I can.

Who we are


On the site you may notice I use both "I" and "we". Me and the boy is just that. I am Tanya, and the boy is my son Val. I have been a stay at home mom since his birth, I had no choice as my son had many issues. He's almost 7 now. Having ADHD and him as well, life can be very interesting.
Val is a very high needs kid, he's smart, funny and sooooo loving, but like many high needs kids needs alot of 1 on 1. I already run a successful clothing store online for kids, but clothing is'nt very fun for kids. I have always been into art, creating out of anything I could get my hands on (often much to the upset of my mom) So it was natural for my life to head in this direction.

As I create I plop him down a giant piece of clay and he mashes it and mangles it to his heart's delight. Does he make jewelry? nope! Nor does he get cutters or pliers or beads, nor glazes and sealers. He does however provide me the inspiration I need everyday. He also has helped with ideas, and inventory (QUICKLY depleating my stock of ribbon to make train tracks)

We talk about everything and nothing, sit outside playing with crafts for hours on end daily. Laughing, giggling about everything. A few times a week he loads up his plastic shopping cart with orders, and we drop them in the mailbox.

It's provided us both with the opportunity to talk, share ideas, and just enjoy the moment, and all the small things in life. In case you wanted to know.
