A shop full of Whimsy and Cuteness!
Wishsong Creations is a shop full of fun whimsical items full of colour and cuteness! Its beginnings started out quite humbly when I decided to take my whimsical children's paintings and illustrations ( found in my other Etsy store: Wishsong Design) and use them to create fun and pretty items such as brooches and art pendant necklaces. With a taste for jewellery making I branched out into making funky wood earring studs, of which I tended to keep to wear myself rather than actually putting them into my store to be sold!
I am a lover of all things creative and I am always inspired to try out new forms of art and craft. This is where my love of sewing toys began! My first toy took me days to complete I was so nervous of messing it up! But now you can't stop me picking up that needle and thread! Most of my toys are completely handsewn by me, all the felt toys and my ever popular series of colourful and fluffy yeti's, which take me a few days to complete each one. I do use the sewing machine now for my art dolls that I create, in combination with handsewing the details and embellishments and hand painting the faces. I also dabble in polymer clay sculpture creating realistic botanical mushroom shadowboxes, which have not made it into my Etsy store due to their delicate nature but can be seen on my Facebook page.
I get a lot of requests for custom orders but I currently do not take any of these, my busy schedule prevents me from doing so and I am also an artist who loves to create things when the mood strikes, selling my items as I make them. This allows me to keep my creativity and passion alive and gives me time to create without the pressure and time restraints that often accompany custom work. I do often have Special Edition or OOAK items and so its always best to grab something you like when you see it as it may not be made again! The best way to keep up to date with all my shop creations is to follow me on social media! You can find me here:
On top of all this creating my real passion is painting, particularly colourful children's illustrations full of animals, princesses, dragons, unicorns and mermaids! These can be found in my other Etsy store Wishsong Design found here: www.Wishsongdesign.etsy.com
So I am definitely kept busy! But I love what I do and truly hope that you enjoy and love the work I create!

Accepted payment methods
Shipping costs include both postage and the box/packaging materials used to ensure a safe delivery of your purchase.
Shipping of all packages are through Australia Post, the only postal option here in Australia. Shipping costs are calculated by Australia Post based on flat rate weight increments starting at: 0-500 grams, 500 grams-1kg etc. So if a package weighs 20 grams and another 450 grams, they both fall into the first cost bracket of 0-500grams and hence cost the same to ship. Any package weighing over 500 grams falls into the next flat rate cost bracket of 500grams-1Kg.
Australian Buyers: Please note that Australia post changed its parcel post to include distance fees in addition to weight and size of parcel hence my shipping rates are now based on the furtherest city/state from me, as there are no options to break down shipping rates here on Etsy. Please be assured that I will refund any overages in postage for my local buyers that may occur.
Most of my toys are light in weight (except toys with weighted pellets like my yeti's) and therefore I can often fit in multiple toys for the same postage cost. Please convo me if you want to buy more than two toys for a more accurate shipping cost.
Postage costs are for Air mail only, to keep costs as low as possible for you the customer. It does not include tracking or insurance, these options are considerably more expensive. Please allow at least 3-6 weeks for international purchases to arrive in the mail.
****Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. It is not the responsibility of me the seller to know each and every countries duty/customs and VAT/tax fees or to pay these fees for you. Please make sure you are aware of the possible charges you may incur on delivery of your item before considering making a purchase, thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
Lost packages: If your item is somehow lost in the postal system I will send a replacement, or refund should you prefer. Please be assured that I want you to receive what you ordered or not be out of the money should the worst happen and your package is lost! Please just allow enough time to have passed up to 6 weeks for international post or 8-9 weeks for Canadian customers before it is considered lost.

I unfortunately cannot cancel your order once it has been shipped so please choose carefully!

Frequently asked questions
Are your items classified as toys and can I give these to children?
Definitely not! My items are artist bears and artist dolls and are made purely for the adult collector. They often contain small parts that may pose a choking hazard to young children and are often sewn gently in places for effect, or are made of delicate materials so will not withstand any sort of play by children. Please do not buy my items for children!
Do you take custom orders or requests?
Unfortunately I do not take any custom orders or requests. I make and sell my items purely for the enjoyment I get out of creating and hence treat it as a hobby rather than a business. So I only sell items when I feel creative and have time to make them! Some items are also OOAK (One Of A Kind) and therefore will only be made once!
Can I order or reserve a Special Edition Yeti?
No you cannot. My Special Edition yeti's are only produced in limited amounts each year and so they are very much sought after by my customers. To make it as fair as possible for everyone to have a chance at purchasing one I release them together at a set time and date. Then it comes down to whoever can purchase one quickest. These include Easter yetis, Halloween yetis, Christmas yetis and any other themed yeti that comes with a brooch and/or accessories. Special Edition yetis are often made a month or so before the holiday date to allow for shipping times and the release date and time will be announced on my Facebook page and Instagram account.
How long does it take you to make a yeti?
Each yeti is hand sewn completely from start to finish and therefore takes me two full days of cutting, sewing and stuffing! That is why it is so hard to keep up with filling my store with yetis as they sell faster than I can make them!
Do you sell to every country?
Unfortunately I am only selling to a select few countries at this time.
Can I pick up my order rather than pay postage if I am local?
Unfortunately I do not offer local pickup. All packages will be posted regardless of where you live.
