Announcement   A variety of handmade and vintage items & supplies - knitting, sewing, memorabilia, toys, ceramics, Avon, and more as I create or discover them. My logo & banner are taken from the fabric "Bee Creative" by Deb Strain for modafabrics.com "Bee'Lieve in yourself. This fabric is for another of my favorites, quilting.

This shop is a testament to all the ladies who have mentored and inspired me: my maternal grandmother who taught me to embroider and inspired my love and appreciation of sewing, quilting, and crochet (she did all three well); my paternal grandmother who taught me to appreciate quality and simplicity; my mother who encouraged me to make gifts instead of buy them, supported all my various handmade adventures, and showed me the beauty of natural and vintage items; and my granddaughters who introduced me to knitting.

Being made with love was the motivation behind the skills I learned from my grandmother & which I hope to honor here in my shop.

I'm a wife, mom, grandmemaw, & daughter who is attempting to supplement our income through my creative efforts. Because of life-long health problems and a creative grandmother, I have enjoyed sewing, embroidery, cross-stitch, crochet, knitting, ceramics, quilting, and general crafting with whatever materials were currently available. I hope you will find something I have created from my "stash of stuff" that will bring you or someone else joy.

Payment
PayPal is the simplest form of payment but I will accept personal checks and money orders. However, I will not mail your purchase until the check or money order has cleared and is safely deposited in my account.
Shipping
I will try to ship your purchase in the least expensive manner available using USPS. Anything less than 16 oz. will ship First Class, after that Priority or Parcel Post. If there is only a minor difference in price between First Class or Parcel Post & Priority, I will ship Priority. If you purchase more than one item, the shipping cost will be for the combined shipping weight & size of all items. I use recycled items for shipping whenever possible to reduce costs, but I usually add a handling fee of approximately $1 to cover printing, tape & other purchased packing materials plus the trip to the Post Office. I try to mail your purchase within 1 business day of the receipt of your payment. Insurance will be required for any items that have the potential of suffering damage or breakage during shipping. I will have tracking numbers available for each shipment. Currently, I do not ship internationally.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and exchanges are provided if the purchased item is returned within 7 days of receipt. However, shipping charges are not refundable and the price of shipping to return the item is the buyer's responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items come from a non-smoking home but 2 cats and a dog do share our living space. If you like a particular item and wish to have it duplicated in a different color, please feel free to ask and if possible, I will be glad to do so. When you contact me, I will give you an idea on how long to expect to wait for your item.
