About

Soapy creator and compulsive "lyer"

From a very young age, I was always interested in art. I was raised by my grandparents, as my parents weren't in the picture, and my grandmother was very involved with arts and crafts. She hand-sew quilts with intricate designs, such as wedding ring and double wedding ring quilts; she also drew and painted. Each weekend we would venture to the flea market for her to sell her wares; it was how we made a living.

She taught me how to sew and sketch; she also taught me survivalist skills such as fishing, building a fire, herbal remedies and treatments; making materials out of what was available around me. I became very resourceful very early on. My grandfather passed away when I was nine, and my grandmother passed when I was 13. From then on I lived with my uncle.

Through grade school I was involved in advanced art programs, and continued my art career through high school. My senior year I was accepted into Converse College as a Studio Art BFA with a German minor. The summer my freshman year of college, my biological father found me through Facebook. He lived in Germany, and had been there ever since I was born. The situation is complicated, but I'm glad and grateful to have him in my life now.

With his support and encouragement, I became a double major, with a BA in Studio Art and in German, with an English minor. Though my art has evolved to artisan crafts over the years, I feel my roots in my early art classes gave me the foundation and starting point to think outside the box when making soaps and journals. With the knowledge I have earned and continue to learn, I hope to one day be self sufficient off of my creations. This one goal is the epitome of an artist -- to be successful with what you love.

Though I wasn't able to complete my degree due to life circumstances, I stood up and made the decision to start my life over elsewhere. January 13th, 2014 I hopped on a plane in Charlotte, NC, and landed January 13, 2014 in Seattle, WA. I moved in with my childhood best friend -- 14 years of best friend amazingness -- and we began dating. Lamenting the soapmaking I used to do, he finally talked me into starting up my hobby again, and now I have enough inventory to try and sell soap again.

Unique Useables, take two -- aaaaaaand run!

Payment
Payment for items must be received within two business days of purchase, unless prior agreement is reached. I accept all payment methods; if one is not listed through Etsy, please contact me and I'll see what I can do to help. Taxes are included in the cost of the book. If for any reason you need an order cancelled, contact me ASAP -- once the book has been shipped, there is nothing I can do and the order is finalized.
Shipping
Once I receive payment, it will be mailed within 1 to 3 business days of the payment. Take this into account when ordering on a deadline, and order with plenty of time. I will not be held responsible for late or tight shipping circumstances.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with a purchase, contact me and I will do whatever I can to make it right. Each item is hand-made. This means there will be uneven cuts, color variations, and other extraneous blemishes that I may not catch before shipping. Please understand that it is completely inhuman to perfect every minor detail. The soaps are also checked for quality before shipping, and if there is an issue that I feel may be a problem, I let the customer know before shipping the item.

Unless I feel otherwise about the specifics of a purchase, and unless an order needs to be cancelled for personal reasons, once a purchase has shipped ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you want a custom order, email me with the details and I'll see how close I can make it, including custom colors, scents, etc. I can send you my current scent/color inventory and allow you to pick from the supplies in order to create your own unique bath product.
