About

From My Family to Yours

As long as I can remember, I've been creating anything and everything. Being artistic has always been fun for me and brings back wonderful memories of family and school. One of my earliest memories was making soda bottle people with my Mom and sister by using random objects that were laying around the house. I also remember my Dad and I creating a diorama about the California Gold Rush for school. I remember days with my sister playing oustide in the bushes with Barbie's and plastic Army soldiers. We would pretend that the bushes were their "treehouses." Those were wonderful days when you had to use your imagination to entertain yourself rather than watch televison or play video games for fun. So, I guess I can say that I inherited and cultivated my creativity from and through my family.

As a child, I always dreamed of having a job where I would use my creativity as a strength. However, life has it's own way of telling you what will happen sometimes. I joined the Army...yes the Army! A far cry from the creative job that I thought I would have as an adult. Though it wasn't what I set out to do as a child, I loved the Army! Serving my country was an honor and has had it's long lasting impressions on me. I learned how to be self sufficient, dedicated, and strong from the Army. These were things that you expect to learn from the military. What I didn't expect was that I did use my creativity in the military. I was asked to paint aviation wings onto wood so they would hang in our unit's hanger. I painted our unit crest onto our battalion meeting room wall. I created a character drawing for our retiring brigade commander. I also painted a large rock during training in Fort Irwin, California. The rock was airlifted to an area just outside of Fort Irwin where other units would paint rocks to show their unit pride. My rock made it onto a post card and is now something that I have to show my kids. It's a lesson to me and them that no matter what job you have in life, your imagination can be used anywhere and at anytime.

Today, I am a stay at home mom still raising my wonderful kiddos, Jacob and Heather and my other two babies Desi and Lucy! My husband Paul is now retired and works on Fort Hood with soldiers who are deploying and returning home from deployments. Until recently, I also worked on Fort Hood with nurse case managers to assist in the medical care for the Wounded Warrior Unit. I had to give up my job due to my medical problems. I now have all the time in the world to dedicate to my shop.

I originally opened my shop with the intent of drawing and painting. As you can see though, my shop turned into an eclectic assortment of everything. I cannot stay focused on just one craft. I see something new and HAVE to make it. I see pictures of a new product and HAVE to buy it. I am Rebecca and I am a craft hoarder! I have it all: beads, scrapbook paper, ribbon, unfinished wood, ceramics, paints, charcoal, water paints, a Cricut machine, felt, fabric, a sewing machine, and now an embossing machine. With my "toys", I want to make beautiful, quality products that everyone loves! My greatest joy is to make something and see someone's face light up because they love what I made! My hope is that my customers will return because they love their quality made items and they want more of them. I want my inherited artistic nature to be passed on to you from my family to yours through my workmanship and products!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and for visiting my shop! I hope you find something that you love!!!

Greetings to all!

There is nothing worse than buying an item on the internet only to receive it and realize that you hate your purchase. I don't ever want this to be the situation for my customers. I want my customers to return to my shop with eagerness and confidence because they know they will receive quality merchandise that is made with love and care.

I do not guarantee satisfaction with my items. Instead, I insist upon it. If you are not happy with your purchase than neither am I. I take every rating star personally. I am very proud that I have a 5 star shop. I would love to earn your 5 star rating as well!

Please read my shop policies and the entire item listing before purchasing any item. Ask questions before you pay. If you are working on a timeline please ensure that you tell me know before you pay for your items.

Items can be customized. Just ask! If what I am selling is not exactly what you want then convo me and I will make it the way you want it.

I hope that you find exactly what you need!

TAXES: Texas customers will pay the current state tax on their order.
Shipping
METHOD OF SHIPPING: I typically use USPS First Class shipping. Expedited shipping is available if needed. Expedited shipping does not mean the items will be made faster. It just means that your order will be delivered faster. If you need a rushed order please contact me prior to paying for your order.

SHIPPING TIMES: Shipping times are not included in the processing time. Processing time is the amount of time I need to make your order and shipping time is the time it takes the post office to deliver your package. Please allow for both periods of time when ordering. Please see shipping times at the bottom of each listing.

TRACKING A PACKAGE: Domestic packages are all shipped with tracking numbers. The number is automatically forwarded when shipping labels are created. Items can be tracked via USPS.com.

CUSTOMIZED ITEMS: Please contact me regarding custom orders in order to obtain the time it will take me to finish your order.

POST OFFICE NOTES: I can guarantee that your items will be made within the processing time that is listed on each listing. However, I cannot guarantee that the post office will deliver your order on time. I am not responsible for packages that get "stuck" at a post office or are delayed by the weather conditions for example.

INSURANCE: I highly recommend purchasing shipping insurance with your order. Insurance is required on orders that are $50 or more. If insurance is not purchased when you checkout your order will be cancelled and refunded.

I will not refund orders that are lost or "stuck" at a post office. I can only guarantee that items will be made according to the processing time that is listed within each listing.
