It started as a way to help support my family and be creative.
When my husband went back to school full-time to receive further education and training, I wanted (and needed) to help our family by earning some money. But, I had 4 small children at home (only 1 in school at first) and I wanted (and needed) a way to work from home doing something I loved.
I love decorating for special occasions, holidays and sports, so I thought of making personalized burlap banners. I began by selling banners at local craft shows, and had great response! My first banner was my SAINTS banner while my family was living in New Orleans. After that I moved to selling on Etsy, so I wouldn't have to leave my home to sell my products.
It began slowly, but as I created more banners and had great feedback from my customers, I became busier and busier. This little shop helped stretch our dollars and pay our bills many months while my husband was in school. I am thankful for every single customer that I have!
I want to continue to make my customers happy with customized banners that they use for their special occasions! It is a fantastic feeling!
My little shop is continuing to grow and I have more ideas that I'm excited to add!
My name is Amber and I live in Camas Washington. I've lived all over the country the past decade in pursuit of my husband's education. :) In spare time, I love spending time with my husband, kiddos, family & friends, reading books and baking treats.
I typically respond to convos within 1-2 days. This is the best way to communicate with me, as I don't check my email quite as often.
My turn around time is 7-9 days for burlap banners, and 10-15 days for other items. It's possible it could be sooner, but I like to give myself a little lee-way in case something comes up with one of my children and I can't complete my orders as quickly as I'd prefer. If you need it by a certain date, be sure to convo me before purchasing.
I love creating custom items, because I know how exciting it can be to get exactly what you have in your mind. Please note that there are limitations on the types and quantities of fabrics, because I only keep a small amount in stock. If you want particular fabric located here on Etsy, we might be able to make that work. Please note that designers fabrics cost more. If you request a certain fabric, keep in mind that it will take longer for that item to be completed because I need time to receive it before I can begin work on it.
Please purchase items within 3 days. Please do not ask me to create a custom order for you if you have no intention in purchasing. It does cost money to list an item, and if you don't purchase that item I lose money and time that I spent putting your order together.
It really is a joy to make these items, and I hope they are joy for you to use!
Thank you for your consideration!

Refunds and Exchanges
Each of my items are handmade by me. Therefore, it will have a unique, not factory made appearance. Items may have small imperfections, but big imperfections are a different story. Burlap is a material that does fray, but is easily remedied by trimming any long fray coming off. I do check each of my items before shipping, but it may be possible that something slipped passed me. Please let me know if I missed something.
Custom orders are non-refundable.
For other orders, I will accept returns within 7 days of arrival (excluding customized items). Buyer will pay shipping costs to return it and have it shipped back to them. I will issue a credit for a new item, or a refund for purchase amount.
