Spaceship!!! Bought one of these to surprise my hubby (and one for me). They are simply RAD.
Trouble always begins with idle hands and bored minds... at least in my lifetime it has. To prevent 'trouble', since I'm too old and tired and have too many kids that rely on me, I've had to keep my hands busy, busy, busy.
MoL Gifts & More was born out of the desire to remain productive and busy while on maternity leave. The venture started off slowly with upcycled books made from cardboard packaging rescued from the recycling bin. I quickly learned a bit about copyright/trademark law and, instead of looking for a loophole to sell my upcycled items, I decided to switch paths completely.
While working my 9-5 job, a coworker re-introduced me to the world of LEGO® and I quickly regained my love of the small plastic building blocks and figures. I was lucky enough to have someone show me the ropes of finding reliable suppliers and extremely lucky to have been in contact with the people at The LEGO® Group at an early stage to guide me in their "fair play" policies. I loved them before and I definitely loved and respected them more during and after those conversations.
What started out as heart necklaces quickly (and I mean quickly) mutated to earrings, rings, keychains, cufflinks - all still quite standard with a few added features thrown in. Although keychains are a major part of MoL Gifts, the real test of skill and creative fulfillment is in the design and creation of those pieces that I can truly call my own... the clocks, the bookmarks, the bracelets, some of the earrings and necklaces.
I'd like to issue a 'shout out' to my precision drill that uses teeny tiny drill bits that seriously hurt when you slip and drill through your finger - without you, I would be nothing.
There are no electrical devises used - sanding, filing, cutting, drilling are all done with hand tools.
(IF you've read this far, you deserve a darn reward so DRILLIN2 will warrant you 5% off anything in the shop)
NOTE: Drillin' has passed away from overuse on Jan 16, 2015. He will be missed. Thankfully his cousin Pin Vice was here to take over his daily routines.
I've learned so much from some truly amazing artists here - what to look for in jewelry findings (aka. the difference between cheap crap and the good stuff), all about glue (and glue remover for those dastardly 'oops, I glued my finger to my lip' moments), how to use resin, and the list goes on. The most important thing I have learned as a business woman is that to succeed one must constantly adapt and thrive for betterness (it's a word if I say it is a word :P ). Consequently, although it may take a while for new product lines to appear in the shop, there is always something new brewing at the desk so keep an eye out for exciting ventures (hopefully) into art prints, t-shirts, tote bags, and paracord accessories.
Anyways, I'm a geek. Not as big as a geek as I'd like to be - I don't memorize quotes or statistics.. I just know that I love LEGO®, superheros, villains, Doctor Who, aliens, mystical marvels, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, movies with explosions, and ZOMBIES!

I'm as boring as peanut butter and jam.... but, luckily, just as tasty.
Brings Meaning To Life
Purchased in early 2010, Drillin' has been an essential part of MoL Gifts & More. In fact, if Drillin' was ever to leave, MoL Gifts would not survive.

Frequently asked questions
How will you be shipping my order to me?
I am physically located in Leduc, Alberta, Canada.
If you are Canadian, your order will ship via Canada Post, Light Packet with the option to upgrade to Expedited shipping by request. If a postal disruption occurs, you will be given the option to cancel for a full refund.
All USA orders will be packaged and mailed from Sweet Grass, Montana.
All other international orders will be shipped via Canada Post with the option to upgrade to USPS with tracking (where applicable).
I am currently shipping on Mondays, however, since the service is quicker you should actually receive your order sooner than if I shipped with Canada Post. If your order has tracking, the tracking will update on Tuesday afternoon.
Why does shipping to my location cost so much?
At this time, MoLGifts & More does not ship to Brazil, Brunei, Cambodia, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, or Vietnam at this time.
Because of the way Etsy formats shipping, the only way to implement this is to have a high shipping cost for these locations. All orders shipping to these locations will be cancelled and refunded in full unless an agreement has been made prior to purchasing.
My order was shipped to the wrong address. What do I do now?
1. If the address you supplied to Etsy is incorrect or incomplete at time of purchase, contact MoL Gifts immediately to update your address for that order only. If your order has shipped, you are responsible for the cost of re-shipping your order to a new address ONCE THE PACKAGE HAS BEEN RETURNED by the post office. If you do not want to wait for the order to be returned or if the order is not returned, you may place new order and will receive a refund (minus shipping) of the original order once it is received back.
2. If an incorrect or incomplete address was entered by MoL Gifts, you may cancel your order for a full refund or choose to have your complete order resent at no cost to you, barring item availability.
Are there any cancellation fees if I want to cancel my order?
All order cancellations will be honored within 24 hours of purchase.
There are no cancellation fees if your order was paid using Etsy's Direct Checkout.
There is a $0.40 cancellation fee on orders paid via PayPal.
I've changed my mind and/or do not need the item I purchased any longer. Can I return an item that I purchased?
Unfortunately due to the impending Canada Post strike/lockout, I am unable to accept returns at this time. However, if you really want to return your purchase, contact me within 3 days of receipt and we can work something out together.
