I have been in business for over 15 years at brick and mortar shops, the festival circuit and now the internet.

It all started with a little girl and her Abuela.

Grandma (Abuela) could do anything. Make anything. Sew anything. She was the ultimate super hero of the crafting world. She was my mentor and I strive to be like her. Every item I use, she used. Every object I make, she made. Everyday mundane household items were constructed into super crafty fun. "Never throw away anything usable" she would say. "It can always be reconstructed into something amazing."

I have a collection of things she made with her own hands. Nichos made from old clothespins and rolled up paper. Santuario de Mesa when a family member would pass. Muñecas made from clothespins and pipe cleaners. Botellas de Plástico made into doll houses with Fósforo de Madera furniture. Ojos de Dios and Flores de Papel in every color imaginable.

She was and still is my greatest inspiration.

She made this little girl's life shine like glitter.

Please double check that the mailing address you have on file with Etsy is current and correct. Packages shipped to an incorrect address due to buyer error may be lost, delayed or returned to me by USPS. In this case, the buyer will be responsible for additional costs related to reshipping. Refunds, if requested, will be issued for purchase price only after the returned package is received by me. Shipping charges are not refundable if an incorrect address is provided.

US Shipping
All items will be shipped USPS Priority within the United States with delivery confirmation. This includes $50.00 insurance. If your package is worth more than $50.00 I suggest you purchase extra insurance. Convo me for a quote and I will make a custom listing for you with the added insurance price.

If your package goes missing or it is damaged in anyway, it is up to you file a claim with USPS. I will be happy to assist you with this issue any way I can.

World Wide Shipping
My packages are rigid to protect your item from bending and are shipped via USPS Priority Package International mail, which can take 2-6 weeks to arrive. This method does not provide insurance outside of the United States. Tracking information may or may not be available depending on the destination.

ALL DELIVERY TIMES QUOTED ARE ESTIMATES and are beyond my control once the package has entered the postal system. If you require faster shipping, please contact me via the Etsy convo system before purchasing and I can quote a price for global priority shipping. Delivery times do not include my processing time. I am not responsible for customs delays.

The customs form I'm required to attach to your package will show the actual price you paid and be marked as “merchandise." This information is system generated on the customs form and I can not change it. I am NOT responsible for customs fees and import taxes imposed on a Buyer by their country of residence. Falsifying customs declaration forms in order to help a Buyer avoid these taxes and fees is against the law and comes with a punishment of up to $10,000 USD with the possibility of up to 5 years of imprisonment. Please do not ask me to violate the law.

I am not responsible for calculating import fees. Buyers can use the tool found at the web site below to estimate import fees:

If you would like a different shipping option please send a message to the shop before placing your order.

PLEASE REMEMBER that once the item I ship to you is in the hands of the carrier (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.) I cannot control the amount of time it takes them to deliver it to you. United States Priority Mail has a limit of $50.00 insurance if your package gets lost. If you would like to purchase more insurance please send me a message before purchasing. All other countries will have to purchase insurance before the package is mailed. CherryPicks is not responsible for lost packages. We will send you a copy of the receipt for proof of shipping from USPS.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are inspected for any defect before shipping. If you receive an item and it has been damaged please contact me.

We do not accept returns due to buyers remorse. We have pictured our product to the best of our abilities and urge the buyer to ask questions before purchase.
