Beginning Creative Aspirations

Almost two years ago I had to quit my job because of health problems. I was devastated and thought all my hopes and dreams had been crushed. Then, after having some time to rest, think and pray, I realized that going to work every day for 8 hours was not really a dream but an expectation. I enjoy crafting and I spend a lot of time doing it. My waking hours revolve around yarn, needles, thread, fabric, glue, paint etc... so a better dream would be to do what I love and make money from that. So here I am!

    Hi and thank you for coming to check out my shop. I enjoy doing all kinds of crafts and learning about new crafts and ways to use them. I finally decided to turn my hobby into a business.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 8, 2013
Hello and welcome to my store. I am sure you will find something here that will add a unique touch to your home or wardrobe. I always like to be different and have something that I know is ONE OF A KIND. When someone says, "Oh I love that! Where did you get it!" I can tell them I made it and it is ONE OF A KIND.

I love shopping at thrift stores for that reason and love taking something home from there and fixing it up by adding hand-made lace or other touches. You never know what you might find when you come to my shop so keep checking back.


Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with the item you purchased please message me and tell me why. If possible I will try to work things out with you. If not you can ship the item back to me (you pay the shipping) and I will refund your money.
I am pretty flexible with payment. I prefer paypal because it is so fast and I can get your item in the mail to you sooner but I will also take a check or money order. I do require paypal with any order where currency conversion is needed.

If you pay with a check or money order I wait until the funds are officially transferred to my account before shipping. My banker lets me know when that happens and then I will ship. Please be patient with this process and I will always be patient with accepting different payment types. I know not everyone uses paypal or is comfortable paying online.
Since I am just getting started I am still learning about how much shipping costs. I primarily ship with USPS or Priority - please recycle the boxes. I always recycle boxes I receive packages in since I believe in saving our planet for future generations.

I always ship the most economical way and being in Fairbanks, Alaska that usually means priority shipping and boxes are free from them. However, if you want your order sent faster just let me know in advance.

I also always ship with tracking and delivery confirmation which is included in the shipping cost.

If you have any special requests just send me a message.

**I will ship to foreign countries but I will do so on an individual basis until I figure out the cost of shipping outside the US.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am a strong believer in recycling / upcycling so I often use recycled items to ship or for packaging. By reusing these items you get something unique and artsy and prevent the landfills from growing. Every little bit makes a difference. If everyone were to do this the world would be a better place.

I do have a dog. My beagle is my constant companion BUT if you are allergic to dogs please message me and I can do my best to keep the item you want pet hair free.

I do keep my materials in bags and away from my dog but I almost always find a hair or two while working. If needed I can wash the item before shipping or if you have a very bad allergy I am willing to make an item with new materials and in a dog free area. I have a lot of allergies myself and I know how frustrating it can be. I am allergic to cats so that is why I have none. Always feel free to message me if you have a special request!
