ShortHenStudio's Shop Announcement

Hello! Please don't be surprised- read the listings for the actual item size! Some shop announcements to follow:

Most of 2015's gourd ornaments are ready, a total of about 200 are being listed this year! My gourd ornaments start with a good soaking and scrubbing, a drilled hole for hanging, then two to three base coats of various color and a bit of decorative painting in a variety of inspired styles. I top them off with three clear, glossy coats and a shiny cord for hanging. This year I was lucky to obtain a wonderful crop of Spinner gourds grown and harvested by Patty of GourdsPlus here on Etsy.

New for 2015: Ready to ship "Quilled Banners". Any ready to ship banner (active or sold in 2015) may be ordered in your choice of colors at no extra charge, contact me via convo with your requests for a reserved or private listing. Any magnet design can be converted into a sign/banner size at your request. I will do my best to work with customers interested in a personalized banner ... my goal: to fulfill custom orders in a timely fashion, prices starting at $18.00 plus shipping. No banner requests for copyrighted or trademarked material will be entertained, sorry.

All magnets listed with a "magnet number" are ready to ship, but can be ordered in your choice of quilling paper colors...Choose a color for each of two flowers, plus swirly "stems" and leaves. Make your purchase and "convo" your color preferences or leave a "note to seller" and add up to one week to the usual 1-3 day shipping time for special handling. Each magnet is individually handmade, assembled, signed and packaged with lots of pride and care as well as a brief history of the centuries old art of quilling.

Making a custom request when purchasing a quilled item? Then please check your Etsy account for my conversations to clarify and confirm your color choices. Answering by smart phone? Then please do not email Etsy since I will not receive your must choose "reply to shop" so that your item can be made to your specifications in a timely manner.

Although custom order inquiries are all considered, I may not be able to fulfill your desires due to time or availability of supplies...specifically, custom wine bottle light and gourd ornament painting is not offered.

For those customers with pet allergies: My lovely beasts do not have access to my studio but may lend a hair to my packing tape without being noticed as I travel upstairs and down again. A note to seller will make me extra vigilant while packing your purchase.
