Pursuing Motherhood and the Creative Life

Creating is in my blood. My maternal grandmother used to make quilts and sell it to farmers during the harvest season. She also embroiders blankets, tablecloth and tea towels. When I was in gradeschool, my mom used to sew pencil cases and throwpillow cases and sells it as a way of augmenting our family’s income. I used to sit under her sewing machine, cutting away the excess threads from the things she has made.

She is into all sorts of creative pursuits. I remember our morning walks where she collects wildflowers, dries them and turns them into pretty home décors. She also makes handmade paper and turns them into lamps, scrapbooks, greeting cards and envelopes. Now, she is into making artisan coco/palm sugar and product packaging.

I practically grew up around my mother’s handmade creations and much of what I know now about crafting, I learned it from her. Growing up, I used to make greeting cards as well and jewelries to give as gifts to family and friends. I’d embroider my shirts or bags to give it character. I enjoy upcycling things and breathing new life to it.

My handmade life slowed down though when I started working. But always, the thought of creating stuff haunted me. Whenever I get the time, I just create whatever I can, depending on the materials I have on hand—jewelries, pen cases, home décors, bags.

I had the perfect excuse to craft when I was preparing for my wedding in 2009. I made most of our wedding décor, my husband’s boutonniere, my bracelet. I was bombarded with ideas and my creative mind went into overdrive. I also stumbled upon Etsy around this time.

I constantly have creative projects filed in my head or written in my notebook, and with the idea of Etsy at the back of my mind, out of nowhere, the idea of opening an Etsy store hit me. I thought about it for days before I finally told myself, “why the hell not?!”

And so in between my day job (as a photojournalist), I’d create for my Etsy shop—not just to sell but as a way to relax, to calm down, to find time for the self, to cheer up, and as an outlet for the product ideas I have in my head.

When I gave birth to my daughter in 2013, I knew I no longer wanted to be a photojournalist. The hours are cruel and it often entails a lot of out-of-town travels. I just want to be a mom and be there for my kid as she grows up without killing my creative side. And so this shop is perfect. It allows me to spend quality time with my daughter (she can ask me to read her stories anytime of the day or we can sing as I craft) as I continue to grow artistically. And who knows, I just might pass on the gift of creativity to her and maybe, she too will find joy in creating one day.

Returns and exchange details
| RETURNS & EXCHANGES |
Prior to shipping your orders, I ensure that they are of the highest quality, and are packaged nicely and securely.

Should your order be damaged in transit, please let me know immediately and send me photos of the contents and packaging, and I will replace the item as soon as possible.

I do not accept returns and exchanges for custom and/or personalized items.

I do not issue a refund or replacement due to:
1.) Stolen packages
2.) Delayed deliveries
3.) Packages delivered to wrong address as given by the buyer
4.) Undelivered items due to wrong address given by the buyer
5.) Items still in transit.
6.) Issues that can be addressed if buyer did not fail to read the product description

It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the right address is provided. It is also the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the packages are delivered/left in secure locations. If you do not have a secure place for mails, you can opt for a "hold my mail" service wherein the post office will hold your mail for you and you can pick it up at the post office yourself. This service may not be applicable to all countries. Please inquire with your country's post office for this service.

I can re-ship items that are "returned to sender" however, the buyer has to shoulder re-shipping costs and other fees (e.g. taxes and customs fees). Collection of re-shipping fee also applies to items that initially ships for free.

I can refund items that are "returned to sender" less the shipping cost and PayPal's fixed fee (around $0.3 but it may vary from time to time). This includes items that ship for free as shipping for these items are incorporated in the price/s of the item/s.

If a buyer's request for a refund is reasonable, I will consider a refund. However, Paypal's fixed fee (around $0.3 but it may vary from time to time) will be deducted from the buyer.
Payment
I accept payments through Etsy Payments.

Should you wish to pay through bank transfer, send me a message so I can send you the details.

If you're from the Philippines, send me a message for other means of payment.

Payment is required before I can make your orders.

| CANCELLING ORDER/S |
I encourage buyers to read product descriptions prior to ordering. Should you have any questions on an item, send me a message before purchasing and I will reply to you as soon as I can.

Cancellations are accepted on a case-to-case basis. Should you want to cancel an order, please send me a message immediately. I will issue refunds for cancelled orders less Paypal's fixed fees (refer to Paypal's policies on Refunds) which are not refundable. This applies to orders made prior to July 2020. In the case of bank payments, I will also issue refunds less bank charges and other fees incurred and/or to be incurred.

I do not accept cancellations for orders which I have already shipped and/or started making, especially custom and personalized items.
Shipping
All items are made in and ships from the Philippines.

| PROCESSING TIME |
The time it takes for me to finish an item varies. Please carefully read the descriptions for the details.

Should you need the item at a specific date, send me a message before making an order and we'll try to work out something.

Processing times listed are estimates only. I usually finish and ship an item way ahead of the deadline. In case there will be a delay, I will contact you immediately.

| SHIPPING METHOD |
All international orders are shipped via DHL. Once I have shipped your order, I will send you a shipping notification that also contains your tracking number. Use the tracking number to monitor the status of your package through DHL's website.

The DHL staff may ask you or the one receiving on your behalf to sign a receipt card. This is one measure to ensure that the parcel gets to the intended receiver. Please provide an address where someone is always available to receive it. In case no one is around to receive/sign for it, they usually call you or leave a notification. Please schedule a re-delivery as soon as possible or pick it up at their branch yourself to avoid the parcel from being sent back to me.

It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the right address is provided. It is also the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the packages are delivered/left in secure locations. If you do not have a secure place for mails, you can opt for a "hold my mail" service wherein the post office will hold your mail for you for a certain amount of time and you can pick it up at the post office yourself. This service may not be applicable to all countries. Please inquire with your country's post office for this service.

If you want to change your shipping address, kindly let me know as soon as possible.

All domestic orders are shipped via a local courier.

Please make sure that your address is correct and up to date. I will not be responsible for items shipped to a wrong address due to a discrepancy.

| SHIPPING TIME |
Delivery time for international orders take about 2-3 weeks, depending on your location.

Delivery time for domestic orders take about 3-5 days, depending on your location.

Once I have shipped the item, I no longer have any control on your package though I regularly check its status using its tracking number.

I do not issue a refund due to delayed deliveries.

Should you need expedited shipping, send me a message prior to ordering and I will gladly help you with the options available.

| DELAYED DELIVERIES |
In case your order did not arrive at the expected time, send me a message immediately so I can check with the shipping company. You can also check the status of your order via the tracking number found in the shipping notification I sent you.

There are usually delays to deliveries during certain times (e.g. before and a little after the Christmas season, disputes at the post office, etc.) and this is beyond my control. When you want to order something for Christmas, I encourage you to order ahead of time.

I would appreciate getting an email from you once you receive the item just so I know your orders arrived on time and in good condition.

| CUSTOMS FEES |
Import duties, taxes, and other fees are the buyer's responsibility. It is not included in the shipping cost or item price. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what fees you need to pay and how much.
Additional policies and FAQs
| PACKAGING |
I use minimal and light packaging materials to provide you with the cheapest shipping rates possible but please be assured that these materials are still sturdy and able to protect your items.

All orders are shipped in bubble envelopes.

| ISSUES|
If you have any concerns about the product you received (e.g. wrong product received, damage to the product received, etc.), kindly send me a message first. I personally hand embroider, assemble and package every piece, and mistakes really do happen sometimes. I would very much appreciate it if you would give me the chance to correct the issue before leaving a review.
