These are the cutest crayons I have ever seen. They came package so well and all intact. Nothing in the package was broken and it all looked great. My soon to be step son really loved them.

About

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved art....

She loved art so much, she experimented and fell in love with many different media: from simple pencil sketches to hand-thrown pottery, from silversmithing to cross-stitch, she loved it all.

Now she's grown, and tired of writing about herself in the third-person, so she'll stop. Growing up means change, and change necessitates adjustments in lifestyle. Now that I'm a mom of a pre-schooler, I don't have the time or budget (or energy!) to indulge in crafts like pottery and jewelry-making, but I do have a saucy little Mini Me who's just as arts-and-crafts obsessed as I was at her age.

So I've put away the PMC to make room for Play-Doh and the ceramic glazes for finger paints. But how do you keep your creative juices flowing when there's Elmer's glue soaking into the carpet and seven hundred tiny pieces of colored paper snippings all over the house each and every day?

You look for a compromise. I now create the crayons that the whirling dervish uses to create the masterpieces for the fridge. I get to trash the dining room to use it as my studio, and the girl gets to trash the living room for hers. Daddy? Daddy trashes his office while he assembles radio equipment. Don't drop by our house unless you're prepared for chaos, but do pop into my online shop, where there are no cats on the couches, no stickers on the floor, and there is always ample parking.

    I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, but I've lived in three U.S. states and am now settled in Niagara Falls, NY. We couldn't ask for better friends or community, and we're thrilled to live so close to such an amazing National treasure!

    "Peelie", as she's affectionately nicknamed around here, is my Go-To Gal when I get overloaded with orders. She peels crayons, organizes the studio, gets my head straight, and basically rescues me when I'm drowning in wax!

Welcome to my shop! My business was founded on a love of art and a love of children. My first concern is their safety, and my greatest desire is to help create wonderful works of art and treasured memories.

I use only Crayola brand crayons because of their high quality and commitment to both energy conservation and American employment.

Shipping
I require a "due date" with each order to help me keep track of what needs to go out, and when. Sometimes, rush orders come in and I need to know which orders can wait a few extra days and which orders cannot be bumped. I try to accommodate as many orders as humanly possible, but I will NOT sacrifice service for volume. If you need your crayons for a specific event date, I need at least 3 days' notice.

I do ship internationally. It usually costs about $9 for under 1 lb, and $20 for over a pound of crayons, without insurance. International shipping has limited tracking availability and the time frames are estimates. Unless you purchase insurance (available with Priority and Express orders), I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAYS OR BREAKAGE.

PLEASE make sure your SHIPPING ADDRESS on Etsy is where you want your crayons to go. You can change your shipping address for specific orders really easily without changing your account information. Just remember to change it back before you place your next order if you want that order shipped to your default address.
Refunds and Exchanges
If, for some reason, you wish to return your order, please let me know. I will refund your purchase price, but not the shipping costs.

If you receive broken crayons and your crayons have been insured (or sent via Priority Domestic Mail), you must send photos of the damage and KEEP ALL THE PACKAGING MATERIALS. The post office will reimburse you for broken items up to $50.

Crayons DO MELT if left in direct sunlight. They should NOT melt in shipping. The melting point of crayons is quite high, and the packaging acts as insulation. Mailing crayons, even to Texas in the middle of the summer, should not be a problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
You must use your best judgment when ordering crayons for children under the age of 3. I have a section in my shop titled "Toddler Friendly." The crayons in this section should be fine for very young children, but if a crayon should break while in use please discard all pieces immediately.
