About Me

I have grown up living on art. I have always been a crafty person and my mom always tells this story from back when I was 3 -- I used to get up in the morning and watch the art programs that used to play on T.V. One day I was watching and I brought to my sleeping mom a basket I made all by myself. She said it was cut, there was glue, and it was woven together...and I was only 3. She always tells me that she wishes she had kept it. Well the passion for art and crafty things has been with me my entire life, and I finally decided that it was time to sell my art. I put a lot of time and heart into the pieces of art I create, and I love doing it.

If you need more information, or have questions about anything stated in my policies, please send a convo my way. =D

I will respond to all conversations within 24-hours and probably way less, unless I am out of town. Whenever I am on vacation of out of town, it will be clearly stated in the front of my store, and on my avatar.

Packages will be sent as soon as payment is received.

California Note

If you are a buyer from CA, your purchase will be hit by an 8.75% sales tax rate. Sorry that I live in such a high sales tax area haha.



I reserve all copyrights to my art work. You may not reproduce, reprint, sell or make copies of anything that I am selling. If you buy an original, I still have the right to reproduce prints. If something is limited edition, only the number stated on the print will be created and sold. If you buy something that has an original drawing (like a pendant) I cannot promise that I will not make something similar to the style used on the one sold, but each original artwork will always differ and be unique in itself.


Payment & Methods

I expect you to pay as soon as you place the order, and definitely within the given 3 day limit. Think about it, when you decide to buy something at the store, you don’t order it without paying, you pay right there. That is how it should be on here too.

Google Checkout- I now accept Google Checkout. To pay select the "other" option upon checkout and I will email you the invoice and then you can pay.

Paypal- This is the safest and easiest way to make a payment. It’s fast, and you can use it without a Paypal account. Simply say that you are going to use Paypal and then when you go to the Paypal site to pay, you can use your card with no account.

No other forms of payment are accepted at this time.



Your shipping address should match the Paypal address you use. This is to keep things safe.

Please note that my shipping prices include the actual shipping cost and an extra $0.30 for handling. By doing this, my shipping prices are able to stay lower.

If I overcharge more by $0.50 or higher of the above price, I will refund it. =D

Upon receiving cleared payment, I will send out your item within 2 business days unless there is some extreme situation that hinders my ability to wonder over to the post office. If such a situation exists, I will let you know that it may take a couple extra days; otherwise I will be shipping your item as soon as possible.

I will go to the post office with places order M-F before Noon. If you place an order before Noon and it clears and everything is fine, I will send your package the same day unless for some reason I can’t.

The time it takes for the item to get to you could vary. I can not control the length of shipping time, but I do hope that it will get to you at a reasonable speed which is why I will send it out a.s.a.p.

I am not responsible for the packages if they are lost or damaged, but feel free to have me add insurance to the shipping. If you want to add insurance, convo me and I will send you the revised invoice before payment and add insurance to the shipping.

Items or purchases sold that cost over $50 will include insurance paid by me.


International Customs

When shipping internationally, I am not responsible for any extra fees that may incur from your end. You are responsible to know the policies of where you live, and must yourself pay for anything that you may be charged extra for.

I will not lie on shipping forms, and please do not ask because it will become an uncomfortable situation. It is not a gift that I am giving you, and I don’t want to somehow get in a lot of trouble for lying. I hope you understand.


Returns & Refunds

I am not responsible for your items once they are in the mail and headed out to you. But, if something happens please convo me because I want you to be as happy as possible and will do what I can to fix the situation. If I decide to send a refund, it will not include shipping. If something happens to your item, please let me know and we can talk about the details and find a solution.

If you purchased insurance on your item, and it does not reach you, then I will be able to send another item or a refund for sure.


Custom Orders

I am not sure what I could do that would be custom, but if you have something feel free to convo me and I’ll see if I would like to do it. If you have something you want to be made custom, don’t think that just because you requested it will be done. I will let you know if I want to or can do it, and how much it will cost. I will also require a nonrefundable upfront payment of at least 45% of the full price. This is so that I don’t lose time and money making things for no reason.



Here on Etsy, we love feedback. I will send you feedback after payment is received and the whole transaction is completed, and I hope after you get the package, that you will send me feedback too. If something is making you want to leave a non-positive feedback for any reason, please don’t leave the note, convo me so I can help to make the situation a positive first. =D

Feedback I leave for you: The only way I would leave you negative feedback is if you have not paid within 3 days and have not responded to any convos I have sent regarding your delayed payment. If 3 days has passed and nothing is received and you have sent no explanation, the order will be cancelled and I will leave a negative feedback. I assume that I will never have to leave anything negative though =D

I reserve the right to refuse to sell to you for any reason I may find. I also reserve the right to change to or add to my policies at any time.
