Bringing elements together.

I make things like breathing. Its part of who I am but sometimes it gets stuck until I remember to breathe deeply, look around, and engage in the world.

My room / studio / workshop is filled with inspirations, books and materials that I've collected from all over the place. Its cluttered but organized so I can find that missing piece to finish a design, or that technique I hadn't thought to use yet. I love that challenge of discovering how a project will come to completion in a way I never expected.

I dream of being able to focus entirely on sharing stories and inspiration through my creations. Being a part of etsy is a big step towards making that happen. Thank you so much for that.

Thanks for considering my work! I'm always greatly encouraged when people show interest in my creations. <3

I always strive to make quality products, whatever media I end up working with. I'm habitually trying new skills and techniques that tend to influence back on all my other works. The variety certainly keeps me focused. I think I love seeing what I can make next the most and its that challenge that drives me.

Returns and exchange details
I absolutely do my best to meet your expectations of my products and guarantee that your order is correct. If mistakes happen despite paranoid attempts at perfection please contact me with the problem as soon as possible so I can attempt to resolve it.

If you recieve a damaged or incomplete order please let me know immediately and I'll do what I can to fix it for you.

If you otherwise wish to return an item please contact me within a week (7 days) of receiving the package to sort out the details. If it is an item that I can accept as a return (most non-customized crafts) then once I receive the returned product in its original state, clean and undamaged, I will refund you its full cost. You will be still be responsible for the shipping costs of the items and any custom fees incurred.
I ship via Canada Post and am limited by their shipping rates and speeds. Most orders should arrive between 7-14 days within central regions of Canada & the US. Remote areas may take longer. All shipping orders are priced to cover tracking for peace of mind for you, and myself as well.

If you would prefer a less expensive or alternate form of shipping please contact me prior to your order to inquire about options and availability for rush shipping or further insurance.

I will ship overseas! If your country is not listed in the shipping rates or you live in a remote location please message me with your region/postal code for a custom shipping rate. I would be thrilled to do this for you!

My packaging is done meticulously to prevent it from damage during shipping. I have had people be surprised at the length I go (or the amount of tape used) to keep things waterproofed when necessary. I also reuse clean materials for packing whenever possible. Please recycle any extra that you can when your order arrives!
Additional policies and FAQs
I make all my products in a smoke and practically scent free home. We (my family and I) have severe sensitivities so we know what its like to be exposed to something that has picked up strong smells or perfumes through contact. You won't be getting those from me!

Any repurposed materials in my work has been cleaned and sanitized prior to use. All ear hooks/posts are new material only.

I do pet-sit regularly so I can't guarantee there won't be a few cat or dog hairs that manage to get into your package. These animals do not stay in my home but will occasionally visit. I strive to keep a minimum exposure of fur to my art and craft supplies. I wash my hands a lot as well. :3

(And yes all my pet-buddies are awesome. It works really well to get out walking or playing with them as a break from hiding in my room working on making things and helps me recharge with new inspiration.)
