About

Stay-at-home-mom that loves to create in my spare time

My shop was born from a failed craft fair. I participated in my first craft fair with a friend & sold basically nothing. So, I put everything that I'd made into my Etsy shop, & sold practically nothing. The only thing that really sold was some paper garland that I'd forgotten to even take to the fair. I had a few custom orders for yards of garland, & that eventually evolved into certain shop staples. I love trying out new color combinations & patterns for holidays. I still get quite a few custom requests, & many of those turn into popular go-to items in my shop. I love how my shop has evolved & focused on something that I really love to make.

I've always been a bit of a self teacher. When I see something that I love, I think to myself, "I could probably make that!" And then I go home & teach myself how to do it.

When my mother got married, my great-grandmother gave her a set of crocheted snowflakes for her Christmas tree. When I got married, my mom gave me one of those snowflakes. I thought that was so neat, but I wanted an entire tree of those snowflakes. So, I found a book & taught myself how to do thread crochet so that I could have that tree full of snowflakes.

When I had children, it became too much of a chore to keep up with my scrapbooking. That's when I discovered digital scrapbooking. I taught myself how to edit photos, create digital papers & embellishments, & now I'm pretty much up to date on scrapbooking all of my photos.

When we moved to a new place for my husband's job, I noticed a lot of prickly pear fruit on the local cacti. I'd heard about prickly pear jelly & decided to give it a try. I picked the fruit, put on two layers of gloves, peeled & cooked the fruit & strained the juice. Now, I make blue-ribbon-winning prickly pear jelly.

I love to try new things & my crafts tend to reflect that. My interests range from making wooden baby rattles, to paper bunting, sewing dresses for my daughters, to making tasty caramel.

I'm a mother, a crafter, an adventurer & a self-teacher. Welcome to my shop!

Payment
Payment must be received within 48 hours of purchase from my shop. Payment may be made through Paypal, credit card or Etsy gift card.
Shipping
I am not liable if the address you have listed is incorrect and I do not have any control over how long a package may take to reach you once it has been shipped. I cannot be held liable for any packages that are marked delivered by USPS, but are missing. In addition, any package returned due to a wrong/incorrect address will only be reshipped at the buyer's expense.

I typically mail things USPS First Class. First Class mail takes from 3-5 days to arrive. If you need an item to arrive quickly, or just want a guaranteed arrival of 2-3 days, just select the shipping upgrade option when you are checking out to receive USPS Priority 2-3 day shipping. I can usually get orders in the mail the same day or next day, so there isn't a lot of waiting time.

• International orders are shipped USPS first class international.
Please be advised that you are responsible for any customs fees, taxes or related tariffs that may be imposed by your postal service and government for incoming mail to your country. I can not mark "gift" on the customs form.

Shipping in the US usually doesn't take more than a week, so if your item hasn't arrived after a week, please let me know, and we can check the tracking, or figure out what's gone wrong. If you fail to notify me that your item hasn't arrived a month after you order it will be more difficult to confirm whether it was delivered or not, and may interfere with any refund or product replacement.

Additional policies and FAQs
