goshery (gosh-ery)

Hi, I'm Nancy, welcome to my Etsy shop! My shop name is goshery - as in "oh my gosh I have to have that"!

I started my shop 4 years ago when my daughter (my only child) decided to attend college in Oregon . . . and we live in Minnesota. Needless to say I had some extra time on my hands and a need to keep busy. Since I love making things with paper I decided to open up shop.

Once my shop was open I had to find a way to get the word out so that people would visit my shop so I started a blog. Originally I used my blog as a place to write about new products and share ideas about craft projects but soon I found myself talking about organization, vacations and other things going on in my life.

My day job is in Human Resources at a medical device company just a mile from my home. Three years ago I received my SPHR (Senior Profession in Human Resources) certification by studying hard and taking an incredibly difficult test. I've been working for the same company for 19 years and I feel fortunate to have a job I love so close to home. I'm also the hand model for our company advertising!

Here in Minnesota the winter months are long and cold, which means that I can spend many hours in my craft room since it's too cold to be outside. A perfect day for me involves sleeping in and doing craft projects.

Thanks for visiting my shop!

The items featured in my store are handmade - I'm excited to turn my hobby into a business! I try to sell a variety of quantities - from single cards to set of cards and tags.

Accepted payment methods


Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


I accept credit card payments through PayPal. You don't have to have a PayPal account in order to purchase through their site with a credit card.

Transactions will be canceled if payment is not made within 3 business days if you haven’t notified me of any delays or responded to my email/convo. I will do my best to get in touch with you before canceling a sale.


I will ship to the address mentioned in your Etsy purchase, not on PayPal information. Please make sure your Etsy shipping address is correct.

Items are typically shipped within 2 business days of receiving payment, unless otherwise noted (I’ll give notices in my shop announcement regarding vacation, etc.). Please allow that time (the 2 business days) for your order to be processed, packaged, and taken to the post office.

Additional policies and FAQs

Please note that all of my items are handmade and slight variations may appear. Sometimes one piece of paper might have color variations; I try to take accurate photos to show any variations. Any questions should be sent to me via a convo.
