About

From Kitchen Table to My Purple Studio

A bright summer day greeted my 7-year-old self, as I bounded out of the house, handmade stationery tucked under an arm, while holding a cigar box jingling with change.
Just earlier, I’d sat at the kitchen table, carefully crafting flower cards with my new Mr. Sketch® markers. Slowly and very carefully, I’d crease each 8” x 10” sheet of paper the short way, draw flowers on the front, then match each with one of my Dad’s business envelopes (!). The best part was the presentation—each bundle of 10 cards was tied with a bow, using some of my Mom’s unused red yarn.
With no script prepared, I took off, knocking on neighborhood doors, offering my stationery note sets with a greeting that probably went something like this: “Hi. I’m selling 10 cards for 25 cents. Would you like to buy some?”
While I don’t recall how many customers bought my stationery, I do remember a lady who purchased one pack, but handed me $2.50 and then went to shut the door. I said, “Oh, no, they’re 25 cents per pack,” and handed her money back. Then she gave me the quarter for the 10-pack, and I left, happy that I’d made a sale.
Nowadays, I paint unique flowers and abstracts with professional watercolors onto 140# watercolor paper, selling personalized cards individually or in packs of 5, 10, or any custom amount. Card packs are elegantly packaged in cellophane bags topped with colorful ribbons, rather than tied with the red yarn of my childhood.
And I paint at my own home now, joyfully sitting at a white desk in a richly hued purple (specifically, blue-violet) room that's perfect for conjuring up creative ideas.
My intention is to create something beautiful, usually nature-inspired, and to bless it with the warmth and love in my heart. The ideas flow from my mind's eye through the fluid paint to the paper, and I especially enjoy it when the paint takes control, mixing and blending on its own.
A lot of people who purchase from me want their cards customized--one couple purchased my poppy cards for wedding invitations, and each guest received a card with his or her name inscribed on the front. Other customers want birthday cards personalized with a name or a number to give their recipient a truly relevant, individualized, one-of-a-kind card.
Many people request packs of cards to give as birthday and holiday gifts, and I am grateful to everyone who has purchased from me. I'm so glad Etsy provides this global experience—now, instead of walking door-to-door in my neighborhood, I'm able to send my products as far away as Australia!

Love and joy,
Joanne

Privacy
When you place an order with JoannesColorbursts, there is certain information that I need in order to send your item and to communicate with you via email in case I have to double-check your instructions to ensure your custom order will be properly created. That is why I need certain information (which you have authorized Etsy to provide to me), which includes your name, email address, ship-to address,and payment information.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as:
1) Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and
2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
With Etsy
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Compliance with laws
I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access
You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete.
You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances such as where I am required to store data for legal reasons,) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object
You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain
If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Joanne Monaghan, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at jsmonaghan [!at] gmail.com.
