Our Story

We first started this shop in 2011 when we were expecting our 3rd baby and needed a bigger car. I was hoping to make just enough money to cover a car payment. Etsy seemed like the perfect place for someone like me. I have always loved to paint and this was a way to do what I love and hopefully make a little money, and not give up my time with my kids. With a lot of help and advice from friends who had done it before, we opened the shop and I got my first sale a few minutes later. I was thrilled!

Since then, we now have FOUR boys and am constantly grateful for this shop to help pay for school and sports, and life and everything else that comes up when you're raising children. And now all of my kids' teachers get hand painted signs as Christmas gifts :)

I have met some truly wonderful people and been able to design some signs for some great causes. I love sharing passions with customers and finding out that we love the same quotes and books or that someone else has all boys too or creating a custom sign for a special occasion.

Last year we started getting pretty busy around the holidays and I had to recruit my husband Nate to start helping. Now I create the designs and he cuts and sands the wood for me. We make a pretty good team!

Thanks for visiting my shop! I hope you find something that you love. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

    Nate is my husband and my best friend and he is the one who mans the power tools for me. He takes care of cutting and sanding the wood and making sure the sawtooth hangers get nailed in straight. :) He's also pretty good at gift-wrapping!

Welcome to Cait-Create! All items on my site are hand made and hand painted. I hope you can find something you love!! I do offer custom designs at an extra charge. Please convo me with any questions!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with any product please convo me and we can discuss a solution. I want you to be happy with your purchase and I will do whatever I can to fix it! However, I do not offer refunds. Each item is very time consuming to create and being made from real wood, they are also heavy. They are expensive to ship and would be expensive for you to return to me.

I do not refund shipping costs and I do not pay to ship a new item, unless agreed upon. Unless insurance or tracking is added I can not be responsible for lost packages.

If your item is damaged in the mail please convo me so we may come up with a solution to fix the problem.
I take payments through paypal. Payment is due immediately. If you need more time please convo me.

No refunds however I am sure we can work together to ready any situation just be sure to contact me :)
All items are made to order unless other wise specified. Some orders can take up to four weeks for the production of your handmade item :) if you are needing it sooner please convo me prior to purchasing.

I know how exciting it can be to order something and check the mail everyday for it until it arrives - therefore I pride myself in shipping your item off quickly. All orders will be shipped about 2 days after the completion of your item. I ship via USPS Priority mail, which usually takes about 2-3 days. International orders vary by location and time depends on how long it takes to pass through customs.

Please make sure your paypal and etsy mailing addresses correspond with each other. I do ship to your paypal address :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember that each item is HANDMADE and HANDPAINTED and is painted on a solid WOOD (pine) board. Therefore each item is entirely unique and there will be variations from what is pictured. For example, wood comes with natural knots, grooves, and texture. I made no effort to disguise this because painting on real wood (while more expensive) adds to the organic feel of each piece. The distressing on each piece will vary. Each piece is hand distressed to give it a rustic feel.

I do not offer refunds because I have to ensure that my signs are not just being used for a prop or an event and then returned because the buyer did not actually want to keep them. They are also expensive to create and ship therefore all sales are final. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, please convo me and I am sure we can come up with a solution. I do not refund shipping.
