Never actually rec'd these, refund was issued by my request. Seller needs to pick up her processing time. Kept delaying my order due to her personal life and work.

Creating Memories that Last Your Whole Life Through

When my children were small, I reveled in planning and carrying out elaborate "theme" parties for them. I could never find the perfect invitation (or perfect anything else for that matter!) so I created my own. I kept hearing from the parents of my kids' friends and from my own friends and family that I should start a party planning business. That sounded like too much to take on to me so I picked out the one thing I liked doing most when executing Maggie's and Liam's birthday celebrations... the creating of the invitations... the art, the layout, the wording, I loved doing it all! I found it challenging and exciting.

I started by polishing up a few designs I had used for past parties and listing them on eBay. Within an hour, I sold a princess party invitation. Wow.. that was thrilling! Within 6 months, I had opened my own website, where the majority of my business is conducted. Please follow the link on the right to visit Practically Darling Designs' website where you can see my full line of invitations, thank you cards, address and goody bag labels.

I absolutely love selling on etsy. I find the atmosphere warm and welcoming. I enjoy my customers and also my fellow designers. I only have a fraction of my designs listed on etsy so if you do not find exactly what you are looking for, please convo me. There is a good chance I already have what you are looking for. If not, I welcome custom orders!

I recently returned to the outside work force. I am a full time Registered Nurse three days a week and run Practically Darling Designs part time. I would love to work with you on the perfect invitations for your upcoming celebration. I am honored to play a small role in my clients' special life events.

Be sure to take a moment to follow the link on the right to my facebook page. There are special discounts and sales advertised only to fans! Thank you for considering Practically Darling Designs.

When you choose to work with Practically Darling Designs, I take your trust seriously! Your satisfaction is my number one priority. You will receive a unique, high quality product at a reasonable price coupled with peerless customer service.

I recently returned to the "outside" work force and am employed as a full time Registered Nurse working three 13 hour shifts per week. Practically Darling Designs is open to serve you two days a week, 9 am - 4 pm, EST and part-time as my family schedule allows on the weekends. Weekend work time is NOT guaranteed. I am not officially accessible during non-working hours but will respond to all inquires and orders placed promptly upon my return to work if not sooner.

Please allow 2 weeks for processing of your order as detailed in the item listings. If you need your invitations more quickly, rush order processing and express mail shipping upgrades are available. (Reference my shipping policy below for details.)

Please know that for most of my card designs, I offer coordinating thank you cards, address labels and party favors. Convo me if you'd like additional information.

If you like my style but don't see exactly what you have in mind, contact me to discuss a custom design to perfectly suit your needs and taste. I normally welcome the opportunity to work one on one with a client creating something perfect for her or his upcoming event. A very reasonable design fee is usually assessed; the exact amount depends on the complexity of the project.

Payment is expected at the time of order placement. For your convenience, I accept paypal, credit and debit cards and etsy gift cards.
Shipment is via USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation, which averages 2-3 days in transit. You may upgrade to USPS express mail, which is overnight to MOST U.S. destinations and guaranteed, for an additional $18.00.

In addition to the express shipping upgrade, a rush order processing upgrade is available. Rush order processing is available for an additional fee of $25.00. Selecting this option gets you a FREE proof within 1 BUSINESS day of receipt of your paid order placement and shipment within 2 business days of proof approval. Be advised that once the rush order service fee has been charged, it is not refundable for any reason.

If you are only going to opt for one upgrade, choosing rush processing generally gets your order to you most quickly.

If you would like to add either or both of these upgrades to your order, please convo me before submitting payment, so that I can send you a revised invoice.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the custom nature of my products, returns are not accepted. However, rest assured that I have policies in place in case of a printing error. I will promptly correct any error that was made on my part at no cost whatsoever to you.

If you discover a printing error or other problem that is my mistake, please report it to me within 3 business days of receipt of your order, and it will be reprinted (identical item with corrections) and shipped, via the same method you initially paid for, within 2 business days of notification and at no cost whatsoever to you!

Please DO NOT DISCARD or use the products, as I will issue a USPS shipping label for you to return the original order. If I am unable to retrieve the original order, you will be charged for the corrected products.

If the error was on your side, I will reprint your order at a 25% discount off of original prices. Please note that client errors include, but are not limited to:
-providing incorrect or incomplete information during the order process
-approving a proof that contained a typo, omission or other error, regardless of text initially provided. Shipping & Handling charges cannot be waived or discounted for orders reprinted due to client error.

Once you approve your order for printing, it cannot be canceled. If you wish to cancel an order after it is placed but anytime before you approve the proof, there is a non-refundable $25 cancellation fee.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am often asked if one can purchase an electronic version of one of my designs. While this may be something I consider in the future; for now, the simple answer is "no". For more details, you can reference the faq section of my website at

If you have any remaining concerns or inquiries, do not hesitate to bring them to my attention. Many thanks for your consideration.
