Announcement   Are you an awesome pre-planner? Are you ready to start thinking Halloween? I've started listing my awesome Halloween products so you can get in before the August/September rush!

******************

NEW Section! One of the cornerstones of my store is that I make what you want when you want it. No worries that you can't get the color and scent combination you want or that your product has been sitting on the back of the shelf forever.

But I've been getting a lot of requests that start with something like, "I know it says the turn around time is a week, but I need this... uh... in two days. Can you help me out?" And even if we take out that the USPS pretty much can't move anything in less than three days, I need two days at best to get soaps done and three days or more (depending on the humidity at the time) for bath bombs. And that implies that the day job isn't taking up more time than normal or that I'm not backed up to the gills just in general.

So I'm going to try keeping a limited number of pieces on hand for people with bath product emergencies. :) So look for the READY TO SHIP prefix on my listings to see what I can get out to you in the very next mail drop.

******************

This shop is Ba-na-na-s! I now carry banana fragrance oil! I figured if I was going to have Minions, I had to have their bananas. :) Banana fragrance oil can be added to any of my bath and body products, but it's going to take a while for me to get it it added into all the listings. If you like to go bananas in your bath, simply select "Custom" for scent and tell me you want the new banana fragrance oil in the Notes to Seller box on your order. Thanks!

So it's come to this... I am now receiving upwards of 4 messages a week from people who want me to send them a product for free so that they can 'review' it on their website/youtube channel/facebook page, etc...

I am not interested in these promotions. If you send me a request for free items for a site like this, I will be forwarding it to Etsy's abuse team as spam.

I'm sure some of the requests are legitimate and maybe these reviews work for other people, but the sheer numbers of them that I have been receiving recently just makes it look like a lot of people are trying to get something for nothing. And I don't want to get into the business of deciding who's a legitimate 'product reviewer' and who's trying to scam Etsy artists. So I'm going to make an executive decision to just not be involved in any of them. Thank you.

About

What's the Wizard Working On?

Pretty much everything! There's never been a craft I've been afraid to try and you never know what I'll list from day to day. ;)

My primary focus is completely customizable bath and body products like soap, bath fizzies and lotion bars. But you'll also find crochet, photography, handmade cards and tags and... well, anything else I get a chance to make.

I'm part of the Etsy-sponsored Craft bar Chicago (craftbarchicago.com) where I teach paper crafts regularly, and at least once or twice a year I teach soap-making 101 to anywhere from 50 to 100 people.

I endeavor to be as environmentally sustainable as possible, so don't be surprised if you see some repurposed packaging when you order. I also use all recyclable jars for my candles and jarred bath products. Most of the small jars are baby food jars. Since I have no kids, why would I have baby food jars? I have ferrets. And when you have ferrets, you have a high likelihood of having one contract a form of pancreatic cancer called insulinoma. One of the treatments for this cancer is a special diet called "Duck Soup" - which actually has nothing to do with ducks - but is actually based on Gerber's chicken baby food, which still comes in glass jars. And, weirdly enough, Chicago STILL doesn't have recycling in all neighborhoods.

I love hearing ideas from my customers. Please let me know if there's a scent, a shape, a gift pack idea or something else you don't see here that would be perfect for you. Very often when I get a custom order from one person, I soon discover it is something many other people want. So please, if you don't see something you want, ask! I'll do everything I can to help you out!

My current fragrance list is actually longer than the allowable number of items in any one Etsy variations menu. This is my current, complete list:

Shop policies

Last updated on February 1, 2015
Hey there, thanks for checking on my policies. I love working with people who have specific needs or wants, so I live by the idea that no question is ridiculous. Feel free to contact me if you need to work out an order in an unconventional way.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Shipping
Thanks for looking into my shop!

I ship through the Etsy connection to the US Postal Service for all orders, including international purchases. I ship the cheapest way possible, which for many of my items is USPS First Class (ground). If you need your order sent Priority or faster, please contact me so that I can set up a special listing for you with the additional shipping cost. Thanks!

If you do not contact me about rush orders, I will get your order out by the time stated on your Etsy receipt, but cannot guarantee that it will get out any sooner. I will not accept requests for returns or refunds because you were "hoping" to get it sooner.

BATH BOMBS (FIZZIES): Bath bombs require at least two days to cure. If you're ordering *only* odds and ends, I can ship them the next day because I have them on hand. Anything else has to be molded on the day it's ordered, they need to cure for a full day, which means they'll get unmolded and packaged the third day and mailed on the fourth. Or put more simply, if you order them on Monday, they'll get mailed on Thursday.

MULTI COLORED SOAPS: The rainbow cube or sticks, the stained glass soaps, the set of fish soaps (which have to be made one at a time) etc... require that each small layer be poured and cooled before the next one can be poured. This requires more time. Please allow at least three days for these to be ready to be shipped.

Other bath and body products (one pour soaps - including tie-dye styles, lotion bars, sugar scrubs, hand sanitizers...) can be produced and packaged either the day they're ordered or the next day, depending on when the order comes in.

Please ask about the lead time needed for large orders. I love doing bulk orders (I've done 600 bath bombs for someone, 85 dinosaur soaps for someone, 80 sets of soaps for wedding favors), but please ask about how much time a given large set needs. Depending on what you need, I may have to order fragrance oil or base products to ensure I have enough to complete your purchase before I can even begin production.

Other items, like cards, tags, photos and backpacks are on hand and should be able to ship immediately.

***** But the best thing you can do is communicate with me either before or right after you order if you need your shipment before a particular date. Thank you so much! *****

When I'm away from my workshop there will be a message in my Shop Announcements, explaining the length of time I'll be gone. When I get back, I will work through orders placed while I was away in the order I received them and they will all go out as soon as possible. If you place an order and then notice that it will take a significant amount of time to get it to you, feel free to request a cancelation of the the order. If my travels take me away from the internet (which they occasionally do), I'll respond as soon as I get back.

Once I start producing a custom order of any kind, you cannot cancel the order. If there is a problem with a custom order requiring you to cancel it, please get ahold of me immediately after placing the order.

***WRONG ADDRESS*** If you notice after you place your order that Etsy has the wrong address on file for you, the only way I can correct it is for me to cancel your existing order, have you fix your address and re-order. I know that's not at all convenient for anyone, but it is the only reliable way for me to make sure your order goes where you want it.
Refunds and Exchanges
All of my soaps and bath products are custom made. This requires time and can lead to slight variations between the photo on my site and your product or between any two products.

Requests for refunds will be honored under the following circumstances:
- We discussed an arrival date and the package did not arrive due to errors on my end.
- I ship the wrong product.
- The order has not yet been made or shipped and you need to cancel the order.
Additional policies and FAQs
So it's come to this... I am now receiving upwards of 4 messages a week from people who want me to send them a product for free so that they can 'review' it on their website/youtube channel/facebook page, etc...

I am not interested in these promotions. If you send me a request for free items for a site like this, I will be forwarding it to Etsy's abuse team as spam.

I'm sure some of the requests are legitimate and maybe these reviews work for other people, but the sheer numbers of them that I have been receiving recently just makes it look like a lot of people are trying to get something for nothing. And I don't want to get into the business of deciding who's a legitimate 'product reviewer' and who's trying to scam Etsy artists. So I'm going to make an executive decision to just not be involved in any of them. Thank you.

+++++++++

If you're using a coupon code that specifies that a specific item or an specific category of item (any Halloween item or any photo print), or if the coupon code specifies a certain number of items must be bought and... you don't, I reserve the right to cancel your order.

I will make an effort to contact you so we can sort out any miscommunication (maybe you thought something was in a category and I didn't think of it that way). I love using the coupon codes, but I'd hate to see them be abused. Thanks!
