WE ARE VERY VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT THE POSTAGE RATE INCREASES

Australia Post keeps increasing postage prices (this is getting a bit ridiculous.. I have useless stamps from mere months ago that are 10 cents short of the most recent equivalents.) Unfortunately, prices for both letters and parcels increase each time and there is simply nothing we can do about it but pout very very sadly.

» We refund ALL excess amounts paid for postage if the difference is more than $1 through PayPal, so chances are you will be paying less than stated postage.

Please refer to our shop policies for more details re: shipping and we thank you for understanding.

WE LOVE GIVING BACK!

The Sister2sister (S2s) program by The Lifechanging Foundation is an Australian program run annually for at-risk teenage girls from Sydney that Missy Messy is proudly involved in. It has done wonders for these girls, instilling confidence and crucial, sometimes basic life-skills through structured outings throughout the year. It continually struggles to receive enough funding to run the program each year, but the Foundation has been extremely resilient and local media is starting to take notice.

As a show of our support, the S2s program will benefit from each Tragedy Bear sale through Gloriousmess! - 10% of sales from each Tragedy Bear item purchased will be donated! We have no financial ties to this S2s program, and thought that such a glorious program would simply be worth your attention. More information about the program can be found at http://www.lifechangingexperiences.org/site/S2s/S2s.php

About

We're taking over the world with Happy. One whimsical illustration at a time :)

Missy Messy, a term of endearment coined by her neat-freak husband, came up with the concept of taking her glorious mess online. She's always left a trail of paper scraps containing oodles of doodles in her wake - rough drafts and concept sketches of various illustrations from her imagination. These bits of happiness have been slowly turning into a growing collection of art prints, greeting cards and other illustrated goodies.

With a background in medicine, Missy Messy has never had formal art training. That being said, she's been seen clutching crayons and hoarding markers for illustrated stick-figure masterpieces ever since she could toddle about. With a streak of stubbornness and a fair dose of determination, Missy Messy faced a steep learning curve, took a break from her doctor duties and founded Gloriousmess!

This carefully curated collection has definitely grown as it continues to celebrate all the little moments in life. The ones that are fleeting, often overlooked and are preciously pure & simple. A lot of thought and care has been put into deciding which items make it online to accurately reflect the Gloriousmess! personality and values.

As much as possible, Missy Messy makes her items recyclable, biodegradable, or both. She's always been a goody-two-shoes, and when it comes to the environment, she's no different. All Gloriousmess! products are sourced from environmentally-responsible materials in a bid to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible.

Hope you have a wonderful time experiencing a bit of Gloriousmess! If you've felt the corners of your mouth twitching upwards, our job is done :)

xx
from Sydney with love

» We are VERY VERY UNHAPPY about the the recent increase of postage rates on April 8, 2013 by Australia Post (and another on Oct 7, 2013!!) Much teeth-gnashing..), but there is nothing we can do but profusely apologize to our international customers about the shipping costs and beg for their forgiveness.

» We try our very best to pack your goodies the very best way possible so you can save on shipping. This means mailing everything as letters as much as possible, assuming it's appropriate.We don't want to skimp on postage and have you ended up with a damaged goodies on the other end either!
