<3 you all!
******************************

I'm very picky about what I sell! Any questions, comments, or suggestions are SO welcome!

My paintings are all done with acrylic paint, of many diffent kinds. Some glitter, some metallic. Sometimes the photos just don't capture the depth! If you'd like more photos, just message me and I'd be happy to send more close-ups!

Any prints I sell are high-quality canvas giclees. They are textured like canvas!

If something is in the "Custom Stuff" section, it's meant for someone who requested a custom item. If you ordered a custom item, that's where to look for it! Don't worry, I'm an update kind of person... I'll keep you "in the know" about your custom things... ANY things for that matter.

Also also, I love doing custom things! Especially candles!

I know that $12 - $25 seems like a lot of money for a candle, but think about it this way: Soy burns at least two times longer than regular wax. I personally have a 3" by 3" cube soy candle that I've had burning for a minimum of 60 hours and it's still about 1/4 full! It's like buying two or three candles, not just one. Not to mention that the soy throws scent better, making it more strong and pure. The candles also burn cleaner, emitting much less soot than other waxes if you keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".

Custom orders are welcome welcome welcome as always!

About

"An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea." -Buddha

I make all of my candles in either containers I have around, containers people give me, or from thrift stores. A.K.A. RECYCLED!

I like looking at tattoos and hope to have more of my own.

I LOVE cats! When I go to someone's house and see one, I automatically start trying to be its friend.

Favorite drink? Fuzzy navel.

I'm obsessed with 16th and 17th Century England.

I start conversations with people I don't know just to see how it plays out.

I like weird music and indie films.

I always listen to music while I work. Modest Mouse, The Moldy Peaches, Pantera, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, The White Stripes, Metallica, Michael Jackson, Snoop... anything that tickles my fancy that particular day.

I love love love Sundance and IFC films. My favorite of all time is a movie called "The F Word" by Jed Weintrob. You know you wanna Google it now haha!

Weeds, True Blood, Family Guy, Supernatural, The Tudors, The Borgias, The Walking Dead, Roseanne, and Shameless are my favorite TV shows. Real Housewives of Whatever, Jersey Shore, and Project Runway are my guilty pleasure "I-don't-want-to-admit-that-I-like-them" TV shows.

I completely and totally support the LGBTQ community in every way! Two dads are better than none! :-) Google the film The Bible Tells Me So. It's an AMAZING pro-gay documentary.

I love still life painting and drawing, especially when it comes out looking really nothing like what I was trying to replicate. A few of my favorite paintings have come from "messing up" A.K.A. "My Interpretation of..." Haha

Random facts and optical illusions are awesome.

WAL-MART IS EVIL!

BUY ORGANIC VEGETABLES!! BUY LOCALLY! Or make soy candles... anything to support the farmers and your community!

Oh, and my aura is turquoise... the greener end of turquoise, that is :)

Basically, I'm some weird form of Hippie. An artist at heart. All of these seemingly random things I've listed influence what/how I create the things I have here in my shop. It might not make sense to anyone else, but it makes me happy :-)

    I'm a very silly and creative person. I like making people smile and laughing until my face hurts (especially if I can't remember what I was laughing at in the first place.) Some people start their day with coffee...I start mine with Diet Mt. Dew.

Well, I guess I should start at a reasonable point... my name is Natalie, I'm 31 years old. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in March of 2016. Art is my happy place. This disease can make a person feel very defeated, but I know it can't take my creativity from me!

I love anything and everything that can be made into art. Even cluttered, dirty tool sheds are beautiful!

Email me at OhBoyFlamingSoy [!at] gmail.com if you have any questions, comments, or requests. I'd love to hear from ya! :-)

Payment
I prefer credit/debit cards and PayPal, but I accept money orders/cashiers checks as well.
Shipping
I'm working on figuring out international shipping rates! If you live in another country and are interested in something you see, convo or email me at OhBoyFlamingSoy [!at] gmail.com and I'm SURE we can get you what you need!

I know the shipping may seem expensive on candles, but I want to make sure they arrive intact and un-melted in the summer months. There's no getting around it... candles are heavy, melty, and breakable! :-)

If the shipping ends up being less than what I've charged you for, I'll refund you the difference.

If you buy a painting, I will always pay the extra to insure it!
Refunds and Exchanges
If a drawing, painting, or photo shows up and it's not the exact color you saw it was in the shop, remember that not all computer color settings are the same.

ANY damaged candles are eligible for refund, minus the shipping fee. I most likely won't be able to replace the candle because they are all one-of-a-kind containers, but I'd be happy to trade it out for one of equal or lesser value.

It's hard to have a specific policy, so all refunds and returns will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis :-)
Additional policies and FAQs
Candles are the main thing to special order. Any color, scent, size, shape (even multi-layers!) I'll do everything in my power to make it for you quickly.

**UPDATE 4/15/2014**

I currently use and have tried these options... I'll be happy to order anything you want if it's not on the list.

I use only 100% Natural Soy Wax. It's natural color is a great Ivory tone if you prefer the candle to be dye/scent-free and more natural.

SCENTS: And honest descriptions of the way they smell because sometimes the names are totally not what they smell like haha :-) I'm very picky about scents! I make the candles as strong as I can without that "headache factor" haha!

Here is a list of scents that I've actually tried. Remember, anything else your heart desires can be ordered!
