I believe that crafting can truly create something

I started Deconstruction Crafts when I recognized the disconnection of my inward passions in the outside world. I had just completed my Masters at San Francisco State after years of activist work in San Diego. I was working with a transformational business called Cafe Gratitude in the Bay Area where I was learning lessons and perspectives on building community. I was following several online crafting circles and absolutely obsessed with Etsy. I was taking on fun little projects as well as scary larger ones. I was also totally inspired by the plastic-free dedication that Cafe Gratitude held with eight restaurants in the Bay Area.
I read Radical Homemakers by Shannon Hayes and was absolutely lit up by the possibility of creating something that joined together all of my commitments in activism, the handmade, conscious community building, and sustainability. I created first to share my vision, be vulnerable, speak out, and showcase the beauty and power of others.
Deconstruction Crafts come to be because I wanted to share what I've always seen as a powerful connection to caring for others, speaking up, healing the planet, and living simply.

I am committed to creating beautiful items that impact our daily routines and remind us all of our power, impact, and potential. Deconstruction Crafts is my method of putting my vision out into the world.

Returns and exchanges
Taking responsibility is at the core of what I am committed to. I take responsibility for my items and clearly articulate everything that I know to be true about every product I create. If you are not satisfied with the item that arrives in the mail to you, send me an Etsy message within 30 days of your payment and describe what miss-communication or error in the product you are unhappy with. From there we can discuss a refund or exchange.
I accept payment through Paypal only at this time. You do not need a paypal account to purchase through paypal, but you will need a credit card to enter through their system.
Immediate payment is requested after an order is placed. I will cancel any order that lingers without payment after three days. If you are having trouble with the process, please message me through Etsy.
Once you place an order, an automatic confirmation of your purchase will come through. After I receive payment I will send you an Etsy message letting you know when I have sent the item in the mail and when to expect it in your hands.
I ship items every Tuesday and Thursday. If you submit payment by noon on Monday or Wednesday, then your item will ship on the following day.
I am fiercely dedicated to using the least amount of plastic possible and strive to create sustainable packaging techniques so that your item will arrive safely and with renewable or reused packaging.
Please ensure that your address submitted during checkout matches your Paypal address. You can change your shipping address through paypal. If your Paypal shipping address and Etsy shipping address do not match, I will not ship the item until you have confirmed the correct address so that I can ensure that you receive the item.
I do not ship internationally because I believe in local and sustainable markets and do not like to contribute or promote shipping across the globe. If you have a special request, please send me a message.
