AmpersandGOs party evolution

{{About Me}}
Social work is hard work. It’s one of the few jobs out there where you purposefully and directly walk towards trauma on a daily basis. As my social work filled days began to get longer & a bit heart heavier…I found the need for self-care. Lots of it.

Crafting became my preferred method of self-care and I began making cutesy items for birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, retirement parties, homes & office spaces. I loved the process from start to finish & found it grounded my untethered self.

In early 2014 I began to wonder if I needed to take a break (because burn out is VERY real in the land of social work). As a social worker in the children & family sector--it was super natural & eye opening for my young mama self to question if my place of practice should be with my growing family & small children. As it turned out, life had plans for me and I am currently a working-from-home mom to three amazing boys—John (9), Chase (7), and Noah (4) with a budding Etsy business. Etsy has become a release and my client's are a constant inspiration.

I love the creative reuse and source some of my fabrics & supplies from vintage shops (brick & mortar, Etsy, & Instagram—who knew?), creative reuse centers, fabric destash groups, local fabric shops, estate sales and the like. I use what I have to dictate what I make and the end result is often a "one-of-a-few" item that can become completely customized to your needs. How cool is that?!

I am honored and humbled to know that my art is being used for amazing events, milestones (weddings, engagements, first birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries), holidays & celebrations. I want my clients to be ecstatic about their purchase and know that they were handmade with so much love and attention, just for them.

“I cannot say enough good things about Stephanie and her shop! I had a truly wonderful experience. I purchased a custom pennant banner from her and the quality is beautiful. Stephanie worked with me and showed me some options of colors I could choose via photographs and was very patient in answering all my questions and always responded quickly!”

FIVE STARS ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Absolutely love my item! This shop is amazing! Wonderfully easy to work with, and genuinely cares about each item they put out, and the people that receive them. Will definitely use again.

“I cannot say enough how much I LOVE this highchair banner. I didn't think it was possible, but it is even cuter in person. This seller was unbelievably fantastic to work with, very quick with responses, shipped fast, and so kind with her customer service in her messages. We can't wait to use this for our son's first birthday and will be sharing her information when people ask about it! Thank you so much!”

Frequently asked questions
Can you get it to me by (fill in the blank)?

We will do our very best to get an item out to you as quickly as possible! If you have an event or photo shoot on a specific day (and it is quickly approaching) please send us a convo with your timeframe and we will see what we can do. Chances are that we can make it work!

We ship USPS first class & priority in the USA and can get an item to you within 2-5 business days (plus item make time).

Custom and personalized orders

We are all about custom & personalized orders. Send us a convo or leave a note in the note to sellers box & we will work our magic!

Care instructions

All banners should be *spot cleaned*. If wrinkling occurs ( and you're not a fan the way I'm a super fan of the wrinkles ) use a low/medium iron to smooth things out.

As always, use your best judgment. Should you iron lace? Probably not. Glitter ribbon? Outlook not so good. Metallic fabric? It's a gamble, spot test first.
