I got this for my sister as a christmas present. She loved it and so did I. I wish it were bigger but it fits perfectly in her purse! Thank you!

Hello! Thanks for stopping in.

I strive to make things that are both useful and beautiful, and use only quality materials to do so. I use mostly natural materials, and use organic and recycled materials when possible.

For something more playful, please check out my handmade goods for children in my other etsy shop, Twig & Sprocket.

Please let me know if you have any questions about anything in the shop, or potential custom orders.

Please pay promptly via PayPal.
If payment is not received in a reasonable amount of time (3-5 days) I reserve the right to cancel the sale.

I will ship all items via USPS within 3-5 days of receiving payment. All items are shipped first class. If you live outside the U.S., please contact me first for shipping costs. Thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to represent items as honestly as possible so I hope that when you purchase an item for yourself or as a gift, you will be quite pleased. If for some reason you are not, please contact me promptly, or within 5 days of receipt. I will happily accept returns in original condition, though I cannot refund return shipping costs.

Please note that I cannot accept returns of custom items.
