Thank you for visiting my little store : )

All of my items are now proudly designed and produced in New Zealand entirely by me. While I dream of my very own studio, all products are actually made at our family dining table in a pet-free, non-smoking environment.

To ensure you enjoy your online shopping experience as much as possible, please take a few moments to read through my store policies.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment is required at time of purchase. If you need more time just convo me so I know not to cancel your order.

I accept payment via Paypal. You can use a credit card through PayPal without opening a PayPal account for this option.

Or, if you have a NZ bank account, I am happy to accept direct deposit as a payment method. If you would like to pay this way just choose the 'other' option on checkout and let me know so I can provide you with our bank details.

If you are new to Paypal I have found the sites below helpful for explaining Paypal payment options:



I ship to your PayPal address unless otherwise advised, so please check your PayPal details and your Etsy ‘ship to’ address match to save confusion.
I charge actual shipping costs, not postage and handling. However determining shipping costs is a nightmare, and I seem to spend more time trying to get it right than I do actually making my products. Then, just when I think I have it right, New Zealand Post unhelpfully increases their international postage rates!

I have always tried to post my products as a standard letter where ever possible, as this dramatically decreases postage costs. However since moving to New Zealand I have discovered the hard way that New Zealand Post are VERY unforgiving on international postage. Envelopes sent internationally cannot exceed 10mm in width or they are classed as a parcel. It drives me nuts and yes, I have tried to sneak a few through, but they just send my orders back to me.

Given that combined shipping costs vary hugely depending on which items you purchase, there will be cases where shipping charges are inaccurate, in which case I always refund the overpayment immediately via Paypal : )

All non-custom orders are shipped within 24 hours of payment being received unless it is a weekend, in which case your order will be shipped the following Monday. All orders are shipped Air Mail via New Zealand Post, however if you would prefer to have your order sent Economy Mail (which takes around 2 weeks longer but will save you a few dollars), please convo me before placing your order and I will set up a custom listing for you.

All taxes/levies imposed by a country are the responsibility of the buyer. Please note that while I can't be responsible for items lost during transit, if your order fails to arrive I will replace it in good faith.

Delivery confirmation and insurance are not included in the shipping cost but can be easily arranged if required at a small cost. If you require expedited shipping I am happy to oblige providing it is possible to use Express Post in your region. Please convo me with any special shipping requests and I will try my best to meet your requirements.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. However, if you have received an item that you are not satisfied with, please let me know so we can work towards a solution. I love what I do and I want you to love it too.
Additional policies and FAQs
Like one of my stamped images but can't find it used on an item currently for sale in my shop? Let me know and I will create a listing just for you where ever possible.

Is your order a present for someone special? I will happily send it to the gift recipient rather than the address provided on your PayPal account. Just let me know the details in the 'message to seller' box when you're completing your purchase and I will include a gift tag with your personal message.
