Hand Made with Love

This is my Etsy shop. I love it and cherish it. It's my own little Ayu Art shop!

Everything you see here are all hand made by me - hand carved, hand printed, hand drawn, hand sewn. Well, maybe everything except the lone digital stamp. :)

My Etsy shop has given both my art and myself opportunities to connect with people I likely never could have otherwise. I am very grateful for that.

I hope you like my art, and thanks for stopping by.

**Important Notice**

There has been two reported lost packages during shipping in the past year.
One was for international shipping and one domestic.
I make my art and stamps with love by hands. Even though the item might look the same, each one is unique. It is very frustrating for me that my handmade items will be lost. At the same time I understand how awful it is for my customers not to receive the item they purchased. These two lost items made me realize I have to upgrade the shipping method. I cannot afford losing more items.

I used to keep my shipping rates lower by strictly using USPS first class mail without any extra services. However USPS does not support any lost items this way. Therefore as of March 5th, 2013, I decided to raise my shipping rate to include "insured mail services". The shipping rate is more but at the same time the service will be more secure. As for custom stamps and my woodblock print, I will use USPS priority mail with both insurance and signature tracking to make sure there will not be any losses.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Sincerely,

Ayu
