Hi again! So glad you are visiting my etsy boutique! I'm Maria Teresa and you can find out more about me by clicking on the shop owner avatar - "cute coffee drinkin gal" on the left of my shop - which will take you to my profile. All my items are unique and hand made by "yours truly" with love and care. All of the poems are my original writings too.

Sorry, I am not able to take custom orders due to "paper and supplies limitations". I don't usually purchase multiples of patterned designer paper and/or embellishments. I really like to make one of a kind, unique items.

I hope I was able to make you smile, laugh and helped you forget the worries of your day!

Please pay promptly upon selecting an item. I will need to cancel your order and re-list the item, if it is not paid for within 48 hours. All of my current items have a quantity of 1, so this will give others a chance to purchase that "one unique" item listed for sale.

My shipping costs include a minimal cost for shipping materials. It is not my intention to ever make a profit from shipping costs. :)

ORDERS to be shipped: will be shipped to address on Etsy, unless you send me a note at checkout indicating another address. This will allow for expedited SAME DAY SHIPPING.

All the items that I post are in stock. Items purchased Monday - Friday will be shipped out within 48 hours. Saturday - Sunday orders will be shipped on Monday - if payment has been received, of course. I will do my very best to get your orders out as quickly as possible!

* Items are shipped via U.S. Postal First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. If you'd like to add shipping insurance, please notify me PRIOR to payment and I'll adjust your invoice. I will be happy to upgrade shipping to Priority or Express - at your request, if you agree to the additional shipping costs. PLEASE CONVO ME PRIOR TO CHECKING OUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE SHIPPING, so that I can modify the shipping costs and reserve the listing for you. All shipping rates are listed on each item page, and I do offer reduced shipping rates when multiple items are purchased. This will get calculated automatically when you check out.

* I am shipping to US, Canada and "Everywhere Else" that USPS will deliver to - EXCEPT FOR SOME OF MY VINTAGE FINDS.

Refunds and Exchanges
I hope that you are NEVER EVER unhappy with your purchase. My goal is to "keep my customers happy!" But if you are - please contact me immediately and I'll do what I can to work things out. An option may be to return the item to me, in it's original condition - within 5 business days of receipt. I will be happy to work with you on an exchange, or I'll reimburse you the cost of the item. You, the buyer, of course, will be responsible for covering all of the shipping expenses.

Sorry... PDF forms are non refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
LOCAL BUYERS: I will be happy to waive shipping costs for local buyers - if we are able to agree on an arrangement for local pick up. Please contact me first if you plan to pick up items so that I can reserve the items for you with "No Shipping Cost". Payment will still need to be received through PayPal or Etsy. Items will be available to pick up after payment confirmation has been received from PayPal or Etsy.
