I want you to feel comfortable in my store and do let me know if you have any questions. Below are my policies and I’ve to put together guidelines that make sense for everyone.


I am set up to accept payments by Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal! Choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "pay now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with credit or debit card without having to sign up for a Paypal account. If this isn't possible for you please contact me and we can work out another method of payment.

Please note- to reduce waste I will not print a receipt to include in each package. Should you want a printed reciept they are available on the ETSY site. Think GREEN :-)

Paypal payments must be made within 3 business days or your purchase will be returned to my shop listings and I will contact Etsy for a refund of my fees.
