    These needed more protective packaging than just a regular envelope as they poked through & were smashed in mailing.
    **Revised. Poor customer service. Seller is harassing me for photos of damage even though I didn't ask for a refund & is refusing to take responsibility for using inferior packaging. Only FLAT paper should be packed in thin letter envelopes.

    I am writing this response to inform my loyal customers and any new ones that I have updated my shipping policies. And to let you all know I simply reached out to this buyer to help her with her poor experience. I am upset by her implications; this is not what I set out to do. I do try my best to do right by my customers.

About

Stretching My (6) Arms

I am unable to work due to my disability, so I keep busy as a bug dabbling in all kind of crafts.
Growing up, my mother kept my summers busy with crafts. Keychains to painting ceramics to beading to toothpick dolls. As an adult, I've done some polymer clay, framing, magnets, greeting cards, and more beading. My favorite pass time had become crafting with plastic canvas and embroidery thread, and have been doing so for over 15 years.
Within recent years, a good friend, showed me the wonderful world of jewelry making. I started with making old world inspired pieces and have evolved in to my own style.
In October 2010, I met another young lady who told me about this great website! I am now able to show my pieces to the world, instead of just local surrounding areas.
My shop is a reflection of the things I've done along with the a few of the items I slowly work on.
Shortly after, around Christmas(2010), I discovered that I am unable to manipulate my pliers and wire cutters anymore. I have made the difficult decision to go through my supplies and craft books to sell a little at a time.
I want you to make something beautiful!
Enjoy!

Shipping
First and for most, I ship to your ETSY shipping address, so please make sure it is correct and current.

I send everything using the most economical method with Canada Post. My packaging involves a bubble padded envelope and some up cycled materials (the bubble wrap) to reduce my environmental footprint.

*All magazines are sent in NEW manila envelopes.*
