Spontaneous quirky beauty drawn from the everday

Delightful Hands started out as a mother daughter team, working on random things that we enjoyed making and selling. Since then I (daughter) have taken over the shop. The shop has evolved over the years, changing with my own passions and styles. Though I personally dabble in mediums of all description paper is the primary material I use in the making of Delightful Hands merchandise.

I work spontaneously whenever I am inspired or have the desire. I work under the influence of much tea, coffee and good music.

I was blessed with parents who always encouraged creativity and a love for beauty. Being home schooled all the way through, my brother and I were also encouraged to develop our own styles, and a spirit of entrepreneurship. All of these things and more have helped me in building my own business.

Accepted payment methods


Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


I accept paypal only.
If you are requesting a custom item, at least half of the agreed price will be due up front, unless otherwise specified during the agreement of terms, the remainder of the price will be due upon completion and listing of your custom item.


I strive to ship with 1-2 days after we receive payment. At the moment, I only ship to the countries shown in listings, but I am willing to make inquiries into shipping to your country. Because of Italy's restrictive customs laws, I am unable to ship to Italy.
TEMPORARY UPDATE *We are currently a 1 car family and I am only shipping once a week so it could be up to 3 business days after your purchase before your order ships*

Additional policies and FAQs

I love custom orders! I accept custom orders for journals, greeting cards, hang tags, and stationery, and if you see something on my blog or flickr you love, I will do my best to replicate it for you. I do not take orders for any card-sets for quantities over 20 and some of my designs are OOAK and cannot be replicated.
If you would like to custom order something, simply convo me, email me, or click "request custom item" on shop sidebar, which will create a custom convo for you to fill out.
But please remember that each of my items is made by my own hands and is highly unique. Not a single item will ever be exactly the same.
