Hey there and thanks for stopping by!

I'm Laura, a crafter, creator, designer, and avid DIYer. Quite simply, I'm an all around professional maker of lots of different "stuff", and have been for as long as I can remember. I believe in living out loud and a little off beat through creating, communicating, celebrating and focusing on the finer details.

Inspired by the likes of Tim Burton, Mary Engelbreit, and Dr. Seuss, I love using a variety of materials, colors, designs, techniques, and tools to create things that range from timeless to quirky. With my renaissance soul tendencies (what I often call my crafty ADD), you never know what you might find in my shop, hence my title of Misfit Maker.

Candyland Studio began in 2004 as a personalized/laser engraving gift shop. Since then my studio has grown tremendously with the addition of lots of fun toys. I mean, tools and equipment. =) People frequently contact me with questions on how to make something, style an event, or to help them find the perfect gift for a celebration. This is why you'll find a variety of items in my shop including components for those of you who like to make things yourself, or finished pieces for those who don't have the time or desire to DIY.

Now that you know a little about me and my shop, please visit Candyland Studio on Facebook and introduce yourself. As always, I encourage you to have fun, make stuff, and don't be afraid to color outside the lines. =)

    I’m the kind of girl that if my husband hands me a crisp $100 bill and whispers, “Go buy yourself something pretty” I’d come home with buckets of glitter and rhinestones, which is why my workshop is better stocked than my wardrobe.

I cannot control how quickly the USPS delivers so please take that into consideration when placing your order, especially if you need it by a certain date or holiday. * * * HALLOWEEN & CHRISTMAS ITEMS TYPICALLY START SHIPPING VIA USPS PRIORITY MAIL IN MID MONTH - EXPRESS SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE, BUT YOU MUST SELECT IT AS AN UPGRADE UPON CHECKOUT * * *

Orders are processed in the order they are received, usually in 1-3 business days. If you would like to expedite your processing and have your order in the mail by the next business day, order by 10PM CST and add-on a Rush Service.

Rush Service ONLY guarantees faster processing, I still cannot control how quickly the item is delivered. While the USPS website states priority packages are usually delivered in 2-3 business days they do not guaranty that time frame and do not consider packages to be late until 5 business days after they are shipped. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about that. If you are concerned about this you may consider Express Shipping (usually $20-$35), which is guaranteed by the post office to be delivered in 1-2 business days.

If your item requires special order materials please allow an additional 2-4 weeks to ship. If you have a deadline please contact us ahead of time to coordinate. Rush orders may be accommodated for an additional fee as discussed prior to ordering.

Insurance is optional at the customer's expense, and MUST be requested prior to placing your order, then a custom listing will be created for you.

International orders are welcome, but please contact us first to determine shipping costs. International customers are responsible for calculating and paying their own taxes and duties for their country. International shipping can take 2-8 weeks.
Refunds and Exchanges
Digital downloads and custom creations are non-refundable. If you have an issue with any item when it arrives, please contact me ASAP and I will do my best to make it right.

Please note that I cannot control how quickly an item is delivered once it has been shipped. I also cannot control or be responsible for packages lost or damaged in the mail. Most shipments will have a tracking number but do not include insurance. If you are concerned, I urge you to contact me ahead of time to have your package insured for an additional fee (based on item value).

Items that are accepted for a return or exchange may be subject to a restocking fee.
