Announcement   Embroidery Hoop, Textile and Button Art

Welcome to my artistic playground!

My name is Brandy Cupcakes, and I love to illustrate and stitch using as many vintage and thrifted components as I can. I have a deep appreciation for traditional fiber arts/techniques and a fondness for modern interpretation. My work is inspired by the conundrum of trying to make modern life work when you feel like you were born in the wrong place, time, planet, and sometimes, even body.

Everything in my shop is made by me, in my smoke free, but not kitty free home. Please feel free to browse around and should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

You can also follow me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/brandycupcakes

This is my second hoop art purchase from Brandy Cupcakes. I was so overjoyed with the first one that I sat down the same afternoon it arrived and ordered this holiday-colored hoop. However, I intend to have it on display year round, not just during the Christmas season. The vintage buttons are mini works of art themselves - varied and interesting with company names, metal inserts and holes, and carvings. The under embroidery is in soft colors that complement the wonderful buttons. You can just feel the love that went into making the hoop art with things from her grandma's stash. It will be treasured in its new home. But wait, there's more! This lady's packaging is so delightful that I saved the box sides because I intend to display them somehow in my house. And the lagniappe made me smile even more broadly! Thx, Ms. B!

This hoop art really appealed to me on the website. But it was yet another thing to actually hold it in my hands - it is absolutely beautiful - I felt as if the artist was speaking to me. The lagniappe was a wonderful surprise, and the shipping box was a work of art in itself. I don't think I've ever had so much pleasure in opening a purchased item! Thank you so much, Ms. Brandy, for a very nice shopping experience.

About

Unique Art For Those With Eclectic Tastes

My name is Brandy Cupcakes, and I am the designer, maker and artist behind Brandy Cupcakes Studio.

I am a hand stitcher. Everything I create takes way more time to make than is probably practical, but it is the only way for me. My fingerprints are all over every piece. Each piece is unique and imbued with a specific set of thoughts from my mind and feelings from my spirit that I meditate on as I stitch. I try to stitch positive energy into each object I make, because dang it, there's so much crazy, sad, negative stuff going on in the world, and sometimes this is the only way I can deal with all that mess.

I don't make these pieces as a way to make a quick buck, but because I am absolutely compelled to. I have always been a magnet for the underdogs and the unwanted, and most of my pieces feature elements that are vintage and/or thrifted and/or up cycled. I try to be as responsible as I can when choosing materials. Everything I come across in life is a potential element for a future piece, whether physically or spiritually. These pieces are meant to tell a story, if only you have eyes to see and a heart to listen.

Hello, and welcome to my studio! I hope you'll poke around for awhile and maybe find something that entertains, amuses, inspires or sparks you. All items are made by me in my smoke free but not kitty free home.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
Payment is expected and appreciated right away. I accept Paypal only, at this time. You do not need a Paypal account to utilize its services, just a credit or debit card. If you see something and would like me to hold it for you until you have the payment, shoot me a convo and I will gladly put the listing on reserved status for you, a.s.a.p. :)

Iowans, you will be charged sales tax. It sucks, we know, but that's the way goes...*sadface*
Shipping
I ship to your paypal shipping address. If you live in the Lee County, Iowa area, local pickup is definitely a shipping option. Just shoot me a convo beforehand and I will take the shipping chargers off of your listing for you.

I like to recycle boxes and shipping packages, so the packaging your item arrives in may be larger or different than what you are expecting. I ship USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail, with tracking and sometimes signature confirmation(for more expensive pieces) and I only ship to the United States and Canada at this time. (I am open to shipping to other countries, just shoot me a convo message). I will not be responsible for any extra taxes or duties your country charges you for receiving an international package. All extra taxes or charges will be the buyer's responsibility.

I will try to ship as soon as possible, but please realize that sometimes life gets in the way of my plans and I may not always find a package shipped within the first 24 hours. I hope you can understand. I will notify you when your package has shipped, so you aren't left out in the dark wondering. :)
Refunds and Exchanges
I put my heart and soul into the pieces I make, so I want them to go to homes where they will be loved and cherished. I will accept returns if you notify me immediately stating your intent to return, and you have the package postmarked within THREE business days(postal business days). Refunds will only be given if these conditions are met, and the item arrives in my studio in the exact same condition in which it left. Shipping will not be refunded. In the event you decide to make a return, I would definitely recommend that you include delivery confirmation on your package, so you can track its movement. If it should fail to make it back to me, I unfortunately cannot issue your refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember that computer monitors display colors differently from one another, so the item you order may seem to be a slightly different shade when it arrives at your doorstep.
