Item never was shipped out after a month. I tried to contact her and never heard back. I had to escalate it to etsy and finally got my money back two months later from the etsy administration case I filed. Not reliable

My items were shipped on April 1st and April 7th, and it's April 26th. I'm yet to receive them and concerned they got lost in the mail cuz it didn't come with tracking information. I'm sorry to hear the news from the shop owner. The shipping guide says give 3-5 days to ship and I've been very patient. I don't want to refund unless the items haven't arrived within a month. I'll give a 5 star rating when or if I receive them.

Not sure how the item is because I never received it. I sent the owner a message and never heard from her. I opened a case and she then wrote back saying it had been shipped out on 4/7/16. The tracking info says the label was made then and nothing else. She did return my money, which was nice, but I would have rather had the item, as there aren't many things out there that feature Tingle. I'm disappointed.
College Hobby to Part-Time Job... That's a Good Thing, Right...?
Way back when, when I was a college Freshman, I took up the hobby of creating Pokemon sprites with Perler beads. I only made my favorites, and just stuck them on my wall with some really awful Sticky-Tac.
At some point, my friends expressed interest in me making their favorite Pokemon as well. I obliged, and soon I was making a ton of Pokemon I didn't even like, such as Caterpie and dumb Bidoof. Bidoof. Really? But it made my friends happy, and I figured I could expand to selling at small conventions.
At the first annual Karoshi-Con, held at Northern Illinois University, I threw my entire stock of Pokemon on a table in the Artist's Alley, and completely sold out, to both older college students and young kids alike.
Each year after, I grew my hobby into a bigger and better business. I expanded past just Pokemon and into Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Minecraft and old school Space Invaders and Pac-Man sprites. Past video games and into mini Tardises and little Vocaloid characters, and even went 3-D into Standing Creepers from Minecraft, and Question Blocks from Super Mario.
Now I sell at most conventions in the Chicago-land area, as well as venturing into the Tri-State area, into Wisconsin and Indiana. My display has gone from a ton of Pokemon on a table and into a full fledged display of Necklaces, Keychains, and Magnets of a variety of series and types of sprites, both tiny (1" x 1") and huge (almost 6 feet square!).
Etsy is a way for me to help get these sprites to those not in the Midwest or able to go to conventions. I've been a member for 5 years; here's hoping for plenty more!
Around the web
I just your average girl with some nerdy interests. I cosplay, attend conventions (though I'm usually selling!) and create entirely too many Perler bead sprites. Please, buy them so they stop invading my home, haha!
If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message! We'd be happy to help.
