These pens are so unique - I have never seen anything like them. I plan on giving these to my children's teachers for Halloween - I know they will love them. Seller is very easy to deal with and quick on delivery.

The enamel fell off the mirror, just a few days after I received it, and the mirror itself seems cheap; Along the edges its bubbling and cracking.

This is my first negative review, and I am extremely embarrassed that this buyer had a bad experience. I made a new one for her. I think what happened is that I had emergency surgery in the spring. I had just reopened my store after that and my quality control was not where it should have been. I cure the design on the mirror so that the shape is perfect. I then pop it off and glue it in place, and I think I forgot the gluing step on this one. As far as the quality of the mirror, the rest of the ones that I have do not have any issues so I am confident that future items will not have that same problem. I have one that I have been carrying in my purse for a year and it is holding up perfectly.
Devilishly sweet creative urges
The Marie Young Creative studio was born in 2009 out of a need to find an outlet for my creative urges.
My work is inspired by art history, vintage finds, nature, and occasionally the offbeat. I love to explore contrast: light and dark, good and evil, urban and rural, sweet and naughty. Like my art, I am filled with sugar and spice, blended with a little of the unexpected.
I inherited my love for creating from my mom. She encouraged my sister and me to play with everything. Her only rule was don't cut paper with the fabric scissors. I started to evolve that love of "technique-based" crafting through artistic discovery.
I loved studying art so much that I choose art history as my major in college. When I told my family about my choice of major, my father not-so-politely asked, "What in the Hell can you do with that?" Well, I found that I can channel inspiration from the past, adding my own funky twist, to create original projects.
