Rainy Day Arts and Crafts

I have always done about 1,000,000 millions different things. I am very much a magpie, whether we are talking about music, art, craft projects, foods, science, religion, school. I can never say that just one thing is MY thing and stick with that. I love it all and truly believe that there are connections joining it all together - even if sometimes it feels I am the only connection.
Over the years, I have made and sold (or attempted to sell) many different things. For a long time it was jewelry, first braided, then beaded, then leather, then wire, then hemp, and I still do occasionally make these pieces. I have always loved to paint and draw. My style has changed over the years, but that is more about growing in skill and mind than a change in artistic tastes.
In more recent years, I have accepted the fact that I will probably not ever tie myself to just one craft. When finally naming my business here in KC, I looked around and realized that I was living inside a "rainy day craft box" and decided to embrace that concept. Rainy Day Arts and Crafts was born.

Paypal is my preferred method of payment. Money orders and direct checkout are also available options. No personal checks.
Payment must be received within 7 days, or convo regarding later payment.
Please convo me if you plan on mailing money order, so I am not waiting on PayPal payment to go through.
Officially, I only run to the post office once a week on Saturday morning, but many items can be shipped straight from my home and sometimes I will make a run earlier in the week as well. If you need your item shipped out ASAP, please let me know and I will go to the post office if needed. Thanks for understanding.

All Domestic (within USA) orders are shipped via USPS First Class or Priority Mail.

All International (outside USA) orders are shipped USPS International First Class mail. This can take 2 weeks or longer for rural areas. Please take care if need your order before a certain date.

Refunds and Exchanges
1) If damage to item occurred during shipping, I will offer a replacement item to be shipped at no additional cost. (**I am very careful in packaging to ensure that this does not happen, but mistakes can be made**)
2) No refund/exchange on customized items.
3) Realizing that every computer monitor is a bit different, and my description of a color may not be the same as yours, if you receive an item and it does not meet your expectations, please convo me so that we can work something out (refund, exchange, discount on next order) as soon as you recieve the item.
4) If you do not receive your item within 10 days of purchase (allowing 48 hours for me to ship and 5-7 business days for post delivery), please convo me. If you have requested tracking/insurance, I will have that info and we should be able to track the package down. If there is going to be more than a 48 hour delay before I ship, I will let you know way before we get to this point.
Additional policies and FAQs
Almost all items can be customized in some way - that's the beauty of buying Hand Made!! Just convo me and we will work something out. I'm very flexible.
