This seller is AMAZING! I didn't update my address and my first order went to a very old one. Apparently the people that live there now kept it. The seller shipped me another one free of charge!! This banner is beautiful BTW, thank you SO much!!

About

Celebrating L I F E. In words. One letter at a time.

When I first had the idea to make banners back in Fall of 2008, I didn’t have anything in mind that resembles what I do now. It wasn’t until my then 5-year-old son was working alongside me, and I let him stamp on some chipboard with what I thought was an “ugly” stamp, that I had the inspiration to cut squares and stamp them with big letters. Inspiration comes in many forms, including the eager hands of a 5-year-old boy. That first banner he inspired was BELIEVE, https://www.etsy.com/listing/63326241/christmas-decoration-believe-garland

My studio consists of my 1954 green kitchen table and a giant armoire I picked up at a yard sale and refinished. Once I put on my blue “Andy” apron, I am in my studio where each banner begins and ends at my kitchen table. Cutting, punching, stamping, distressing, stringing and finally shipping all happen there.

Each banner is hand-stamped in paint using foam stamps, then distressed with ink and strung on ribbon. No printers, no computer.

I do most of my work while my children are at school, napping or in bed for the night, since paint, wet paintbrushes, ink-pads and my 1-year-old is a challenging mix. I find a great speech to listen to online that will renew my spirit and I go to work. Making banners in batches helps them look similar to each other and cuts down on prep and cleaning time. A lot of distressing and stringing takes place while I watch a favorite PBS show with my kids, or while I am supervising piano or violin practicing.

In August of 2010 I asked my Aunt Johnell to become a part of my shop, as it had grown into a bigger "hobby" than I ever thought it would. I like having more time where I am just "mom"--not mom on the computer, mom shipping banners or mom frantically creating a last-minute custom order. In addition to creating her own designs, Johnell also responds to our convos, creates the custom orders and handles the shipping. I am so grateful to have her as a partner in this!

    My list of artistic pursuits is as varied as a hobby store catalog. Whether it's working with fabric, paper, canvas, frosting or clay, I find joy in the entire creative process. Of all my projects, my favorites have always been collaborative efforts.

Shop policies

Hi! Thanks for checking out the policies governing your purchase. We keep this as simple as possible for everyone, since there is enough stress and worry in life already :)

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept credit cards and gift cards directly through Etsy. We also accept payment through Paypal. Your third option is to send a cashier's check through the mail. If you choose this option, we will ship the item when we receive the check, and not until then.
Shipping
Our regular shop listings are ready to ship within 1 to 3 business days after purchase. Custom banners are ready to ship within 5 to 8 business days after purchase.

We ship within the United States via USPS First-class mail, Priority Mail and Priority Express Mail. The delivery speeds are usually 3 to 5 days for First Class, 1 to 3 days for Priority Mail and 1 to 2 days for Priority Express. You can choose the shipping method in your Etsy checkout cart.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International mail, Priority International Mail and Priority Express International. The delivery times can vary widely depending on the destination, but are generally between 8 and 14 business days.

Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email from Etsy with a tracking number for the package. Please note, for First Class International shipping, the tracking information will end when the package leaves the United States.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not pleased with your item once it has arrived, please contact us so we can work together on a solution. We take great care to include detailed information about the size and style of our banners as well as the materials we use in each banner description. We also choose our photos carefully to ensure accurate color representation. However, due to the wide variety of display settings, the color you see on your screen or monitor might be slightly different than the true color of the banner. We do not offer a refund just because the banner seems different to you than the listing describes.
Once your item has been shipped, you will receive an email from Etsy with a tracking number for the package. Please note, for international orders the tracking information will end when the package leaves the United States.
The USPS has been very reliable for us. However, as is true for any delivery service, occasionally there are problems. Please understand, that once an item has left our hands, it is out of our control. We will work with you to track your parcel and resolve any issues that may arise but please be patient as we work through this process together.
