I've wanted this unique item- Richard Parker in the boat- for months! Life of Pi is one of my favorite movies. Novelty things such as this is the reason I love Etsy

Let's just take a moment to appreciate how awesomely Halloweeny this custom Dusky Lorikeet scood is. It was a custom request in my Birdie Nerdies shop but HAD to share it here too. :)

The very last of the old Hedwig bases is shipping out today with a Gryffindor shade. How fitting seeing as the very first lamp I sold was a Gryffindor lamp. Farewell Hedwig.

About

One Freakin-tastic Nerd!

My mission is to make a living by making other people smile. One of the best parts of a sale, for me, is hearing back from the customer about how much they love their new hat, lamp, plushie, etc. It makes all the time, effort, and love that I put into everything I create that much more worth it. I love to interact with my customers because it's like making a new friend. I guess you could say that I hand make smiles.

I make a smile by sewing or painting something that will bring that smile. I do what I do so that you can be a fluffy fluffy wolf, parrot, wild dog, unicorn, dragon, gryphon, tiger, cat, husky, etc. wherever and whenever (within reason...I wouldn't wear fur hats in 80 degree weather or out in the desery). You can wear them at cons, festivals, on the slopes, walking through the cold, or just lounging at home reading a book via the light from your Harry Potter lamp. I do what I do so you can eat your dinner off a death star and sleep in your comfy Hogwarts house sweatpants and Camp Half-blood t-shirt. I do what I do because I love it and I want you to love it too.

When I first began creating spirit hoods (also known as scoodies), there were two things that caught my attention almost immediately.

1- The patterns out there weren't at the comfort level I wanted (my sister collected them so I tried on a few). If I did like the fit, I found I didn't like they way they did the ears or the paws, etc. My solution for this was to decide that I was going to start making my own spirit hoods the way that I wanted them. I drew up a pattern from scratch and I've been using that same pattern ever since. I find them extremely comfy which is good enough for me. Luckily me sister, the collector, agrees. She said she prefers the fit of the hoods I've made her over the others that she's purchased elsewhere. Is my pattern the best out there? Is it perfect? I doubt it, but I set out to create a fit that I liked with a look that I liked and I achieved that goal. I worked hard on my pattern so that you could benefit from it.

2- I noticed a lack of unique animals available. While there are a few exceptions, it seemed to me that most spirit hoods were generally wolves, foxes, or the occasional unicorn. I still love those of course and love to make them, but there are so many unique animals out there that weren't being represented (and still aren't but don't worry...I'm working on it) like African Wild Dogs, Caribou (Reindeer), and birds. Other than the occasional owl, I was surprised that I could not find any bird spirit hoods on etsy. I decided it was up to me to fix that. So, I created the first parrot spirit hoods on etsy (and possibly the first ones ever as far as I know). I love to take special requests because there are so many people out there who love unique and interesting animals and having the chance to wear a beautiful and comfy scood version of them is something they just can't pass up. So, I try to provide that.

I'm here for you. I want to make your dreams come true. I definitely didn't mean to rhyme that but it happened so we will just go with it. :)

    Totoro is a white face cinnamon pearl pied cockatiel and she loves to watch me sew and paint. Without her adorable, feathery, puffball self I might never get anything done...or is it just the opposite of that. :)

Payment
You may purchase through direct checkout or paypal. Note that e-checks through paypal take longer to process so production on your item will not begin until payment has cleared.
Shipping
IMPORTANT! Please read all policies before purchasing!

I send all items with USPS first class or priority mail. Each order will be packed carefully so as to keep it in good condition and will be given a delivery confirmation number to ensure safe delivery.

My shipping days are generally Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays but that can fluctuate depending on my schedule.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME COUNTRIES CHARGE A FEE (customs import tax/duty fees) BEFORE YOU CAN PICK UP YOUR PACKAGE. You are responsible for any fees on your end so please do your research before purchasing.

Once your order is turned in to the post office, they are responsible for the safe and timely delivery of your item. All packages are insured. If your package ends up lost or damaged (very unlikely, but just in case) you may choose between a refund or a replacement. Whether you choose a refund or a new product, the insurance must be claimed and approved first. Lost packages cannot be claimed as "lost" until 21 days has passed since the item was shipped (unless you live outside the US, then it's much longer).

If your country is not listed in the shipping options for the item you wish to purchase, message me for a shipping quote. Certain countries that are known for packages being stolen or lost (Brazil for example) should know the risks beforehand.
Refunds and Exchanges
IMPORTANT! Please read all policies before purchasing!

Once I begin work on an item, I do not accept refunds or returns. The only time refunds can be given is before work on the item begins/supplies are purchased or for a lost or damaged item, in which case either a refund or a replacement can be initiated once the insurance has been approved (see the shipping policies for more info).

I do not accept exchanges except for in a few minor cases (t-shirt size) or extreme circumstances.
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept custom orders. If there is an item that I have previously sold out of that you would like to purchase, simply put in a custom order and give the details of the item you desire. The same goes for any other custom items you wish to order from me.

My hours of business are Monday - Saturday from about 11am to 8pm. I use this time frame to do all my supply shopping and sewing/painting/production and it is when I will most likely respond to your messages the quickest. There is no production on Sundays. I respond to messages fairly quickly (sometimes as soon as I get them) but you will get a quicker response from me if you message me within the 11-8 time frame Mon-Sat.

When I go on vacation, I don't generally put my shop on vacation. All items are still available and I respond to orders and messages via my phone. Generally, my vacation time doesn't cut too much into the amount of time I will need to produce your order just be aware that it could mean slightly more than a two week turn around when it's the summer season and during holidays. I will generally inform you of this when you order something.
