Hi I'm Diane and I've been creating steadily for many years now, initially as a hobby to pass time while chronically ill but now as a source of self-sufficiency. Your craftsperson likes to create using paint, paper, beads, yarn and things that she thinks can have another life rather than being tossed into land fill.

I have a thing for teapots, owls, cats, socks and hosiery, gorgeous specialty papers made by hand and from interesting materials. I like things cute, fun, bright and funky.

I have a purchase history under my old shopping account sweetypie_die.

If you have ordered something and have not heard from me after 24 hours please contact me again just in case my email spam filter has whisked it away.

If you are not sure when to expect your order please read the shipping info below. If this isn't helping contact me and I'll look into it and see if I can track it down for you.

  • Other Method
Payment
Please pay for items in your cart within 48 hours. If you would like me to hold something for you, calculate combined shipping on multiple orders or create a custom or reserved listing for you I am happy to help.

Preferred Payment methods is Paypal. It is cheapest for everyone and offers the best buyer protection for unexpected circumstances.

If you reside within Australia I am willing to accept Direct Deposit into my bank account but please convo me first before proceeding to checkout. Payment for Direct Deposit must be made within 48 hours of checkout. If you need more time let me know and I will set up a reserved listing for you.

Currently Mountain Moon and Sea IS registered for GST. 10% GST for Australian orders is included in shipping costs.

International buyers please be aware of your the taxes and duties that may be charged on items being shipped from overseas. For more information on this contact your local customs department or government office.
Shipping
All items over $50 in value must be sent via registered post, (or express post if within Australia).

If you live in the Illawarra I will consider pick up/delivery but this needs to be discussed first.

All items will be shipped within 2 business days of ordering at the latest. Usually it will be within 24 hours. Business days mean Monday to Friday.

Post offices operate very limited hours on Saturdays and are closed Sundays. Please understand the differences in international time zones. Australia is ahead of most of the world, so our time can be some 15 hours before yours. (Your post office may still be open but mine may not be).

Products will be packaged and mailed in a way that is designed to protect the product during transit. As such shipping fees may reflect the materials needed to protect your purchase, or the cost of a slightly larger package or envelope.

If you're in Australia and want express post convo me and I'll get a quote for your particular item. AusPost often change their prices and the best packaging for your particular item to make sure it arrives safe may cost more.

Wherever possible mailing envelopes and padded bags will be reused in order to reduce environmental impact. I will tape your package securely to try and reduce the likelihood of theft during transit, this may make your package harder to open at your end but please have faith that it is worth the effort. :)

Complimentary gift-wrapping is available on request, please convo me before checkout in case I'm having an over-efficient day and tape the package shut before your message reaches me.

I am more than happy to accommodate the new Registry feature.

If you have any questions please send a convo and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.

Estimated delivery time for packages sent to Australia is between 5-7 business days from the date sent. Estimated delivery time for NZ is between 7-10 days. Estimated delivery time for air-mailed packages to Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region is from 14 days up to 28 days. For delivery to South America and Africa please allow longer.

I cannot control what happens to a package once it has left my hands but I will do my best to ensure all customs forms are filled accurately to reduce any delays. Before ordering it is the buyer's responsibility to check their own customs regulations as to whether certain items, in particular seeded papers, dried flowers, paper made from organic plant and animal matter are restricted or prohibited.

If a restricted or prohibited item is ordered it will be the buyer's responsibility to pay any fees for the fumigation, investigation or destruction of property. I will not refund the cost of good or shipping in the event of customs intervention. I will not lie on a customs form for you so please do not ask, it is a legal document and penalties apply to me for non-disclosure. Dishonesty is against my own personal ethics.

If you would like buyer protection through please consider PayPal's statement here:
www.paypal-australia.com.au/security/buyer-protection

If you would like items sent via registered post please convo me before checkout. I will need to adjust postage costs and send you an invoice. Alternatively discuss before purchase and I will set up a reserved listing with the amended shipping rate.
Refunds and Exchanges
Most importantly if you have any problem, large or small please send me a convo or email. If you have feedback of any kind please don't be shy. I welcome it, particularly if you are being constructive in your approach. If there's an issue, let's work on it together to find a solution.

Refunds can only be given for the cost of items only. I will refund in the case of a faulty product, in the rare event that the product does not match the description, or is not fit for the purpose it was designed for. (I am a human being and as such can make mistakes).

Personalised items, such as finished invitation orders cannot be refunded if event dates change, events are cancelled or events are postponed. If something does happen and the details of your event change contact me ASAP and I may be able make changes to the current order for a small re-design/remake fee. Often invitations are made in layers and it may only be the printed layer that would need remaking. I hate wasting things so if it can be reused or altered in some way I will give it a go! I want to work with you. :)

I hope that you will work with me too, just communicate with me.

If a piece requires repairs, I would be happy to do so but sadly I cannot refund shipping costs for packages, especially international ones. This is a one-woman show for now and sadly this is reflected in my budget. Plans for world domination are in the pipeline and when that happens I will surely be more generous in this department.
