About

A little bit of Whimsy....

Years ago I used to work for an antique mall while attending college. While working there I worked with a co-worker who was selling her bead supplies/inventory. I thought it sounded like fun. She taught me my very first steps into creating jewelry. From then I was HOOKED!

Soon I had a bag full of bracelets and necklaces and nothing to do with them other than to give to friends and family. On a whim I decided to open up an Etsy shop because it didn't cost much money to do so. From Etsy I was contacted to do a local holiday craft show. And then it grew.....

Since I'm the artsy person in my group of friends I'm always asked if I can do a certain project for them. One day my friend asked me if I had an idea for a gift for her friend's wedding. I searched on Etsy and found photo blocks. And I thought 'Hey! I can do that!' and so I did. They started out small, again for friends and family until I could figure out my process and eventually learned how to do the image transfer on wood. I was blown away with the success of my photo transferred blocks so I decided I needed to figure out what else I could use the process on. With having a Graphic Design degree I realized that I could make my own designs and transfer them onto wood as well.

Out of college I took a job as a painter for a company that does handmade, wood burned and hand painted items. I loved that job and decided I wanted to incorporate those skills I learned into some of my projects as well.

So in my shop you can find a mixture of all of my experiences.... photo transfer... graphic design.... wood burned and painted objects.. and even a small amount of stamped metal.

I have so much fun coming up with new ideas, new designs, and bringing joy to people when they order image transferred photo blocks for their loved ones.

I'm always looking for new and creative ideas that I can make my own!

My listings state that items can take up to 2-3 weeks for delivery. Most of the time I can get items done faster but MOST require at least 1.5 weeks (a few days to make the item and 3-4 days for shipping). If you need an item by a certain date send me a message and I will see what I can do!

6% tax rate applies to all orders shipped within Iowa.

Payment on all orders is due at time of purchase.
Custom orders require full payment up front before any work is done on the item.
Shipping
*****IF YOU DO NOT SEE THE SHIPPING PRICES LISTED HERE, you will need to add the item to your cart to view the shipping cost. Etsy is "testing" out a new feature that does not show the shipping prices up front to some users.******

**PLEASE NOTE: Placing one order of multiple items from my shop only allows shipping to one address. If you wish to purchase multiple items shipped to different addresses you will need to place an order for each address. This allows a tracking number to be assigned to each item and charges appropriate shipping.**

All items will be shipped by USPS unless otherwise requested. If you request a different service, please let me know before you pay since the shipping cost may be more.

I can no longer offer express/overnight shipping via USPS (it is not reliable). If you would like to purchase upgraded/overnight shipping it will be done through UPS or FedEx which can sometimes be costly. Please convo me for a quote.

All orders that are not custom or made-to-order will be shipped 2-3 days after payment.

International shipping will take a minimum of 2 weeks and can take up to 6 weeks. If you are outside of the US please be patient. All international orders under 4lbs are shipped First Class International and have a tracking number (about $35). All orders 4 lb or more must be shipped International Priority ($60+).

****************All customs and duties owed on packages shipped to other countries are the responsibility of the buyer and will not be refunded. I have no control over these fees and will not know what they will be.

Please be advised that purchases coming into the UK are charged a 20% VAT when the cost of the item is over £15. There is also an £8 handling fee from the UK post office.****************
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds on custom orders. If item is damaged during shipping, please let me know within 5 days and I will remake the item. Proof of damage might be requested for insurance purposes.

Refunds accepted on non-custom orders up to 14 days after delivery. If item is damaged during shipment, please let me know within 5 days and I will send a replacement. Proof of damage might be requested for insurance purposes.
