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 have recently introduced custom-made acrylic art blocks, tote bags, cushion covers + carry-all pouches, all made by my production partners using images of my encaustic art.

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

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:)

I do NOT do *large batches* of handmade CARDS because of the recurring painful tendonitis in my right arm.
________

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?

NO -- Virtually everything I make is UNmatted / UNmounted / UNframed unless specifically stated otherwise in a specific listing.

Is tracking included with the shipping?

NO, Canada Post basic, regular mail does not include tracking 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]

Delivery Times

If you need something "handmade by me" by a certain date, please convo me before ordering. If time is of the essence, upgrade to XPressPost for the shortest delivery time - available for Canadian + US destinations.
