There is something about working with natural materials and leaving a permanent design in its skin that I really love. I am inspired by nature and nature spirits, old fairytales and ancient celtic patterns. I am lucky enough to have countryside on my doorstep, so I don't have to travel far to feel nature's influence.

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Every item is clearly photographed and described and therefore I do not accept returns.
If by chance I make a mistake with a personalisation, I'll send a replacement asap. (This has never happened yet!) Correct spelling and punctuation is your responsibility when you let me know what you'd like written.
If I need to issue a refund for something that is not my fault, eg. damage or lost in transit, then I only refund the cost of the item, not the shipping. I'm sorry, this is a hobby of mine and I don't charge enough for my items to cover this sort of thing, I hope you understand.
If the mistake is mine and I need to refund, then I will refund the complete payment.
Payment is currently by paypal or Direct Checkout - both can use your credit card.
My local post office is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, so I am limited to posting on those days. If there is no personalisation and I receive your order by noon, I can usually post that afternoon. If not, the next chance I get. Please allow an extra day or two for personalisation.
I post 2nd class 'to be signed for' postage in UK. Overseas postage is sent by regular airmail with a receipt of postage. It usually takes about two weeks for delivery to the USA but up to 3 weeks to some parts of the world.
If you prefer to have your items sent overseas with a tracked and signed for service, which is 2-3 days faster and includes insurance, please let me know and I'll add £6 to the postage cost.
There may be customs charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most wooden items I list can be personalised - just message me and double check the spelling of any names! Payment will be required in advance.
There are several international spelling differences eg personalised / personalized & colour / color. Please double check spelling and grammar of any personalisation as I'll only contact you if I notice something that may be an obvious mistake. Thank you!

To avoid confusion, as I know some people have asked me this: I do not make the signs and boxes etc myself; it is only the wood burning pyrography that I can take the credit for. (Though some of the books are made by me.)

I am sorry, I no longer accept custom orders.

Items that I regularly sell, such as signs, may vary slightly from the photo - they'll be almost exactly the same, but as they are hand-drawn, there's bound to be slight differences.

I'm sorry, but I don't do custom orders for books. I use so many different techniques and bits and bobs for these, that it takes me an hour just to get it all out my cupboard! (and then try and fit it all in again afterwards!!) I don't want to charge you for this time, so I make the books all at once about twice a year.

Thank you for reading!
