I never got it ! I am still waiting! I received one email from the seller and that was it!

I'm very sorry you didn't receive your templates in the time stated. I believed this item was set up as an automatic download but apparently there was a glitch. I do wish you had informed me via email or Etsy's conversation system about the lack of delivery. I would have responded straight away. I only learned about the problem when I received your review and thus couldn't know it needed to be corrected. Again, please accept my apologies.

Fake it 'til you make it

... or how Chichiboulie came to be. It all started that day right before my eldest daughter's 5th birthday when I was presented with an opportunity though, truth be told, I didn't quite have the experience I may have said I did. But as they say, all's well that ends well and 8 years later, Chichiboulie is still alive and kicking and evolving along the way.

Chichiboulie began with a recreation of childhood full of wonderful images and whimsy: colourful paintings, fun-filled prints, sweet fabric creations and more. As time goes by, my interests as an artist have evolved and I'm currently working with more mixed media creations as I love to see the textures work together.

I balance my creative side with my "intellectual" side through my work as a therapist (both in energy therapies and psychotherapy and coaching) and find the two fit smashingly well together and are great complements to each other. I do believe I am very lucky indeed.
