I thought 'pin backs' referred to the size of the back of the pin, not the entire pin. The pins are very, very tiny.

Tip Toe Thirty
My family and I live in rural Kentucky on 22 acres of glorious rolling hills and grasslands. The sun rises to our right and sets to our left. Every day. I live in a place where my children can go outside to play and know to be "home by dark."
Our extended family includes 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, 62 chickens and loads of frogs, birds and other little creatures of God.
In a land thriving with all the basics how can I not be inspired?
I wake up every morning at 4am and see my husband off to work. This gives me time to get business items done or create orders from the previous day.
When my children wake up I take a break to make them breakfast and I'm generally able to sneak in a few more minutes of work while they eat and argue over whose turn it is to pick the TV show.
Our life is anything but ordinary and our life is anything but tranquil. But it's our life and it's an everyday adventure.
I'm a mom, a wife, a friend, a photographer. I'm quiet and soft spoken (and married to one of the most chatty men on the planet!) I create because I know no other way.
Tool Man & Babysitter
I help out with any tool creations, carpentry needs or other "big muscle" jobs. I like to think of myself as Melanie's go-to guy when she has a creative & unusual request for ways to make creating, storing, and selling easier. I also babysit. A lot.
Want to know a little bit more about me and my products?
First of all, I LOVE custom orders. Send me an email with details on your visions!
Many of my findings, beads, charms and pieces are bought from other etsy sellers and my local bead store. So you can buy knowing that you are supporting more than 1 artist and/or local small business. With a collaborative effort such as this you can be proud to wear my handmade pieces of art.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Other Method
With that said, if you'd like to mail a check or money order that's fine. I just ask that you keep the lines of communication open and I'll do the same. Please let me know when payment is sent and don't take more than a few days to send it.... I'm kind of impatient. ;-)
I put all my jewelry in plastic baggies or on pretty backing cards and pack them in a jewelry box with a ribbon and send them on their way in bubble mailers. I greatly dislike having to put them in boxes, because I don't feel that it is cohesive with my views on staying green and reducing waste. However, after a couple of damaged packages this year I've decided it is the safest way to ship. Please try to reuse your boxes in some way!
I ship via first class to etsy addresses. Please be sure your address is correct. If it isn't please include a note in the note to seller address. I include delivery confirmation. Priority shipping is available, contact me so I can set up a seperate listing.
International Buyers... you know the drill: I am not responsible for customs, duties, taxes, etc. Please inform yourself of those potential charges before purchase. I also can not track international shipments any further than the main postal hub in the US before it crosses the border.
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm unable to refund for buyers remorse or buyer error. If you have made a mistake and don't want your product anymore simply return the item (you are responsible for return shipping cost) and I'll give you a store credit valid for 60 days. The store credit will reflect a 20% restocking fee. I am in the business of creating orders as they're ordered and don't care to have completed stock on hand. Because of the many sizes and styles available to order it is likely that the item you are returning will not be the exact order that someone else places. Please understand that I strictly enforce the 20% restocking fee because of this.
Store credit is not applicable towards shipping costs. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
I'm happy to do exchanges for colors or sizes that aren't exactly what you were hoping for. And of course, any errors that I make are mine to correct. And I will. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Consignment is not available at this time.
I select several charities (mostly animal rights organizations and shelters) and my children's schools to donate towards yearly. Please do not contact me to donate items for your fundraiser or blog. I do mark these conversations as spam.
