About

♥ Handmade Means Love, Passion + Creativity // Perfect Imperfections + Variations ♥

As a grandmother to 4 precious little ones, my creative focus is primarily 3D paper art for the home as well as ENCAUSTIC original small paintings, all individually HANDMADE by ME.

From the moment I placed my hot iron with melted wax on paper, I was captivated by its rich texture + luminosity! To be fully appreciated, these paintings need to be seen, touched and handled so you can appreciate and FEEL their texture.

Sometimes recycling used [sometimes vintage] books from thrift stores + other times using acid free card stock, I create 3D paper art featuring my signature butterflies, along with baby elephants and other shapes.

Some of the custom [bespoke] styles close to my heart are the various memorial 3D butterfly pieces, created to help parents have a tangible remembrance of babies that died too soon ~ a tragic experience that my husband and I went through many years ago ~ and these memorial keepsake, personalized creations have become cherished by many.

I always welcome CUSTOM ORDERS for paper creations ~ a number of my most popular creations grew out of the special requests of some of my customers!

I am so very fortunate to be able to do what I love, each and every day, and the very best experience of all since opening my shop in 2009, has been meeting so many wonderful people from all over the world!

+++ With every order, I include a little something extra as a way of showing my appreciation + saying THANK YOU to each fabulous customer +++

Everything is designed, created + made with love in Nova Scotia, Canada

▬ WELCOME to my shop, where treasures abound ▬

My 3D paper art, encaustic art, handmade cards & archival prints are a delight to create and are treasured even before they leave my home on the journey to yours!

:: My work comes in 2 forms -- READY to SHIP + CUSTOM or MADE to ORDER
:: Please remember when buying handmade, that a lot of time, love and attention has gone into each detail of every creation.

► Special DOUBLE FLOAT MATS / MOUNTS are IDEAL when framing your BUTTERFLY ART since they allow for the FULL 3D effect of the FOLDED WINGS.
________

Because it's coming to the busy holiday season, my shop will be kept OPEN so orders can be placed BUT from NOW until OCT 15th, NO orders will be created or shipped since I'll have little grandchildren visiting from far away :) ✿✿ ALL CUSTOM ORDERS received will BEGIN the creation process OCT 16th *in the order in which they were received* ✿✿ Listing shipping times have ALREADY been adjusted to reflect this.
I WILL answer all CONVOS during that time as quickly as I can.

► ALL paper creations [unless otherwise specified in their listing] are shipped via Canada Post basic LETTERMAIL because of the nice, low cost --- but please remember that this very economical method offers NO ITEM TRACKING and NO INSURANCE and although I've only had 1 COLLAGE not reach its final destination, I CANNOT trace the item or file a CLAIM with Canada Post with this BASIC mail service.

►► If you choose NOT to UPGRADE SHIPPING which would include ITEM TRACKING or INSURANCE, please realize that you are agreeing that in the rare event that your order is lost or damaged, there will be NO refund or replacement.

APPROXIMATE Delivery Times for BASIC LETTERMAIL --
:: Canada: 5-9 business days

► Unfortunately, I have no control over CUSTOMS + once a package leaves my hands I cannot guarantee that it'll arrive within the suggested timelines.

► BUYERS are responsible for any duty and customs charges that may be incurred.

::: PACKAGING :::
Everything is packaged with love + care for a safe journey to its new home!

► Each BUTTERFLY CREATION will have the wings PURPOSELY flattened for its long journey to you. Just gently fold each pair of wings with your fingers + VOILA!

► You can use tweezers if any of the ELEPHANTS' floppy ears need a little lifting -- after all, if you were travelling as long as some of these little fellows, you'd feel a little wilted too!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders! --- MANY 3D Paper Creations [but NOT all] can be personalized depending on the space available + the length of the NAME and/or DATE you want.

Because there are so many variables, the best thing to do is ASK:)
________

Custom or Personalized creations take anywhere from 3-14 business days to make, depending on the item involved.

If you need your creation by a specific date, please ASK before placing an order. To be safe, it is suggested that if you live OUTSIDE of Canada, that you purchase 4-5 weeks prior to your deadline UNLESS you are planning to UPGRADE your shipping to XPRESSPOST International.

Are your creations matted + framed?

Virtually everything I make is UNmatted / UNmounted / UNframed unless specifically stated otherwise in a specific listing.

Is tracking included with the shipping?

NO, but at the time of purchase, you can UPGRADE to PARCEL which would give you tracking OR you can simply ADD INSURANCE to your order [separate insurance CANNOT be added to Canadian destinations]

Shipping Delivery Times

Please NOTE that these SHIPPING TIMES are IN ADDITION to the CREATION of CUSTOM ORDERS which will NOT begin until OCT 15th because I will be away -- my shop will remain OPEN during that time
