CANNOT BELIEVE how beautiful this is! I bought it as a gift for my niece who's getting married next month, and it's hard to imagine how wonderful it will be when a wedding picture goes inside. I think for now I'll put her invitation in it so she can display it at the reception if she wants to. Jill was a dear to work with, and the frame came well-packaged and ahead of schedule. I will order from this seller again!

Received this today and it is STUNNING!! Even prettier than I imagined it would be. The vase is so pretty it doesn't need flowers to brighten up the room, Love this seller!

My husband got this for me for Mother's Day (after some strong hints)! It came beautifully packaged and included free tissue and a gift bag so he could wrap it for me without making a special trip to the store. I think she did this knowing that men are sometimes at a loss when it comes to gift-giving... and we both laughed that she'd gone through this extra trouble to be sure the gift was successful. I intended to put the frog in my bedroom, but it's so cute it's grabbed a spot on the table next to the TV where we see it every day! I love the way it brightens up the room (which is otherwise very neutral in color). I saw the comment below about the frame and I must say our experience with this seller was very successful. I would not hesitate to order again. The mosaic is beautiful, the workmanship is top-notch.

About

The Art of Letting Go ...

Somewhere along the line (later instead of sooner) I learned that art is about letting go~
* Letting go of any notion that you can control your creativity;
* Letting go of any belief that your actions will result in consistent results;
* Letting go of any preconceived ideas of how what you have in your head will look after it's filtered through your hands;
* Letting go of a finished piece so it can find a new and loving home.

I guess what I'm saying is that creating art is much like raising children--but that's another story.

I have worked in many media, but was never satisfied until I learned to let go. My mother's admonitions to "color within the lines" gave way to a comprehension that I must make my own lines...and not be frustrated when they don't go the way I intended.

I love creating--it is the closest thing there is to freedom on this earth. I really enjoy those moments when someone says "wow!" and they're talking about my work. I am in awe of those who relate to it so well that they must take it home and make it their own. That's what happens, you know. When my art becomes yours, it takes on the shape of your environment, your style, your life. I trust you'll give it a good home.

Shipping
All of my pieces are ready to ship once payment is received unless they are specifically listed as custom made-to-order pieces.

I ship by USPS and UPS, taking cost, convenience, the art's protection, and other factors under consideration. I ship twice each week. If you need something within less than a week, please convo me with your needs, and I'll do my best to accommodate. If your requests (overnight shipping, for example) result in actual costs above my standard shipping charges, I will bill you for the difference.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am proud of the quality of my work. I have collectors throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe! However, if for any reason you need to return a piece for refund or exchange, I must receive it within 7 days following my shipment of the piece. This close turn-around time is essential so that I can make the piece available to other buyers. Returned items must be received in unused, undamaged, resaleable condition. Under these conditions, I will give a full refund of the purchase price only; shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Made-to-order pieces are refundable ONLY if they are not customer-specific; such returns fall under the general prescription outlined in the preceding paragraph. A custom order of a shoe mosaic, for example, is probably refundable unless it has wording or other items that make it specific to the buyer and not saleable to another customer. (I reserve the right to make that decision.) An example of a piece that would not be refundable would be a made-to-order photo mosaic with a picture that is meaningful to you but not to other buyers. (Again, I make this call.)
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom orders and do much of my business making artwork to order. Ocassionally I must refuse or adapt a custom order request due to various limitations (availablility of materials, for example). I do not duplicate any piece of artwork or jewelry because I want each piece to be an original.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you, and I will make every effort to fulfill your wishes if it is possible for me to do so. I want your input regarding colors and design, but reserve the right to make final decisions--I am, after all, the artist!

Take care--and make each day a celebration!!
