My Life Song
After all my time is happily consumed by my dear husband and our 3 enchanting, playful, lovable kiddos, I use the rest of my time to PLAY (ahem, "work") !
Sometimes I creep out of bed and become a night owl and spend hours into the night in my studio, mixing inks and powders, tearing into all kinds of colors and textures of papers, stamping and embossing- even hammering!
It is such an outlet for me. People who have seen my craft studio are amazed at the hundreds of rolls of yarns and ribbons, spectrums of ink, countless stamps, file after file of colorful paper and tons of entire reams of cardstocks. Buttons and paper flowers, Italian clips and eyelets, stickers and die cut machines- too much FUN stuff!!
My shop evolved within it's first year from handmade cards to meet my customers requests for custom made goods for their weddings and parties. Now I offer Custom Wedding and Special Events goods that are created just for each person, or they can pick from what is available in my shop. I can personalize your entire event if you have a theme- everything from invitations to party favors and decor.
I love to see my shop continue to grow and change with my clientele.
WHY FAIREST LJ?
"Fairest Lord Jesus" is one of my all time favorite Ancient Hymns. It tries with all its might to describe the beauty of Jesus Christ, but having nothing but nature and things of this world to compare Him with- well, it's not possible! How can you compare the beauty of the Creator with His own creation? His beauty surpasses everything we could see this side of Heaven because in Heaven there are colors and senses we have never encountered here. Anyone who knows Jesus, knows that He is indescribable, incomparable, greatly misunderstood by those who don't know Him- His beauty makes us weep with joy and longing to see Him face to Lovely Face. He paid the price for our entry to Heaven, and that price was His life. If you don't know Him yet, you are missing out! "Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved." "For there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we can be saved." Acts 4:12 Whew! We are not saved by works that we do, our deeds are not weighed on an imaginary balance! BUT, only by trusting in what Jesus has already done for us, we can be saved and live a life of constant gratitude of it! Hallelujah!
"Fairest Lord Jesus" reminds me that no matter what talented artists' hands may create in this world, it is no match for the beauty of our Creator. My shop name reflects that HE is the Fairest One of all.

~ORDER PROCESSING TIMES: To make it easy for you, each listing has a "processing time" if you look under the shipping section above the shipping cost, it will say "Ready to ship in _________".
Since my shop consists of both commercial and completely handmade goods each item will have its own processing time.
However, if you need it sooner than the time indicated, by all means, ask me.
~STANDARD HANDLING AND COMBINED SHIPPING:
All orders ship via First Class unless an Express service is purchased in addition to your regular order, or unless the Flat Rate Priority options are a better shipping cost alternative, in which case I will automatically upgrade you to Priority Flat Rate and refund you any excess in shipping over $1.00.
If for any reason, you are in rush with a deadline (or just plain ANTSY :), please contact me, regardless of the nature of your items you are purchasing, to make sure your purchase will be available to ship by your deadline.
~THE POST OFFICE: (not myself) can guarantee an arrival date only when a Priority or Express service is purchased along with your order. Express comes with a Money Back Guarantee for postage purchase only.
~THE NITTY GRITTY MESSAGE:
I'm happy to say that 99% of my wonderful, amazing customers don't need to hear the following, but for that ONE PERCENT:
PLEASE REMEMBER: I care very much about your packages. I have been known to get in my car and drive like a maniac and hand deliver a package to make your day and super close deadline! But once I carefully wrap your goodies, package them, print your label, provide you with a tracking number, and hand it to a USPS worker, I surrender all my Magical Superpowers concerning your package. I am literally transferring my concluded responsibility to the United States Postal System.
I have been known to replace easy-to-replace items, and I am happy to do so as long as it is possible.
Buyers are responsible for all fees, taxes, if any, applied at customs and any charges that are associated within each country's policies.
It is illegal and fraud with a $10,000 fine and prison time for any U.S. merchant to falsify shipping forms to save a purchaser from paying their countries imposed taxes. Please don't ask me to do so. I love my customers, but jail time or 10 Grand is asking too much.
~INSURANCE: is offered if you want further protection- just let me know and I will gladly add it to your shipping fees. The packages that I automatically upgrade to Priority on your behalf for better shipping rate come with insurance starting at $50.00, but I can add more if you'd like at USPS rates and price differences. Usually the Insurance is a very tiny charge...a small price to pay for peace of mind :)
WRONG ADDRESSES: I copy/paste the address you provided in each Etsy sales receipt to generate your shipping label. If your Etsy address is not updated and it goes to the wrong address, OOPS....I cannot be held responsible. If it gets returned to me, buyer is responsible to pay for shipping again to the correct address.
Refunds and Exchanges
~If a refund is granted it will be minus shipping, unless I goofed.
✿⊹⊱╮All these refund policies are written here for clarity and reference. I adhere to my policies, but depending on the circumstances, I have the perfect freedom to bend to each unique refund request and even to be flexible on my "no returns" items. I want to make you happy, within reasonable conclusions.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am the only pair of hands that runs every function of my shop from reordering, receiving, creating handmade orders, invoicing, shipping, shop maintenance and inventory and communication/messaging.
I fill orders on a day to day basis to meet your "ship by date" on your invoices, but I am not available for answering messages or questions on Sundays.
This is not just a means of income for me- I enjoy looking for beautiful things to make available to you, I package them carefully and hope to bring some joy and delight to your day. I am always thinking of new things my customers might enjoy. I hope you have a pleasurable experience here!
