About

911 Emergency to Disabled Mom & Happy Artist

Wow The last 10 years have been a rollercoaster ride for me. I have worked in law enforcement & 911 dispatcher for 20 years. I loved my job & loved helping people. I found out I had a disease that caused me to have failing health. I went through a few surgerys to help it. Finally in the best health of my life. Very Happy....In a flicker of a moment my life changed. Driving down a backroad to take my cousin home 4 kids with me and a driver blew his stop sign going 90mph and hit my truck in my drivers door. My life changed at that moment. Im blessed to be here & more blessed that the children were not harmed. Since July 2005 I have had 21 surgerys to date. I sadly have more to come. Im so blessed though to have wonderful kids, husband, animals and loving family. I treasure every moment I have with them. Because I know it can all change So quickly.......

So many surgerys, too much pain. I was so sick for many years after the accident but sad & struggling because I was unable to work ever again....stir crazy & bored... I love to work. I have a brain injury memory loss speach problems at times, neck injury, hip, sever tremors, shoulder, you name it its broken. (whole left side injured). I was in constant pain. Nothing helped. I hate medication-yuck. Ive had 100's of injections in my spine, head, neck, shoulders, ect. Im a human pin cushion. After one surgery I had a stroke. I recovered from the stroke for the most part. Thankfully. I get grief from people because I look totally normal. Some dont realize whats sometimes its what is inside that doesnt work. It has been a struggle. My poor kids have seen way to much sickness. So I am so happy now that I have found Art.....My art is my only source of income & I love it.

Summer of 2011 I was searching for things a disabled person can do. I love bling, jewelry anything pretty. Maybe Jewelry. Sell at craft shows? I started buying beads & bling & creating. I wanted more challenging art. I enjoyed it but it wasnt enough. I wanted more. I wanted a challenge. Something I could do when I felt able. Little did I know it would help heal me. Not in a healing sense of being fixed. But a mind over matter healing. I wasnt a believer until I found POLYMER CLAY. Once I started creating with it I fell in LOVE. I could work with my hands I could create anything I wanted. Clay has changed alot from when I was younger. Its beautiful, sturdy and lasts forever. You can mold it shape it & it brought so much joy to me. I started making things for friends & family. I wanted more. I found Etsy and a few clay artists saw my work and told me to open my own shop. Thinking I needed to create a ton before opening I had over 300 items made. lol.. Ugh I am still listing. I wish I could list in my sleep. :).... I loved that I could make jewelry and incorporate many other mediums with it. My lamp work glass, Swarovski Crystals and wire, you name it. I tried it. I still have my bad days but usually can make them better by just sitting for a few hours to clay or create jewelry....

Finding Clay and Etsy were a life saver. Im so happy with my creating. I love to create custom orders and love to be challenged with a custom request that is totally out of my element. Its so fun....

With my business Customer service and Quality are the most important things. I make sure that I check my shops several times each day. I ship that day or the next on items that are already made. Custom orders or made to order items are shipped in 3 days. I thank my customers, I make it personal not just an online order with no conversation. I want to make it a great experience. I take pride in everything I make & want to make customers as happy as I am when I create. That is what is important to me. It makes everything I do when im creating my art so fullfilling.

I sell at local stores, craft shows and two online shops. I Join Every Art, Jewelry & Clay contests I can find.I love a challenge. I won awards, prizes and been given titles of Artist of the Week, Artsian of the Month on Artfire. Im honored that others love my work as much as I do. It keeps me going & creating everyday. My biggest accomplishment is that I was asked to be in the magazine From Polymer to Art-PINK, Coming out August 2012. My work is being published.So happy & honored. I now teach others to work with clay. I have made a few free tutorials & more in the works.

Im an active member in many guilds. I buy from, promote & support other Etsy shops. I blog & Facebook.

I list new things everyday. Over 500 items created,to see a gallery of created items that are soon to be listed on Etsy stop by my blog-I have links to a gallery of photos of items I have available or can create again.I will happily make you anything you want.Drop me a line & I will happily create your one of a kind treasure. I also have free tutorials, see my blog: www.Kimisjewelryandgifts.blogspot.com. Keep stopping by for new items. Thank you for Supporting Handmade.

All my packages come packaged secure. Each item is in a separate bag. Then placed in either gift boxes or secured in tissue, bubble wrap and then placed inside hard plastic container so they arrive to you safely. I like to wrap all packages pretty but some of my items are large and do not fit in the fancy little gift boxes. So I have moved some of my packaging to plastic re-uesable containers to protect them and they also weigh less than some gift boxes. Trying to keep things as Green as possible.

°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°


Gift Wrapping Available: If you want your purchase gift wrapped please let me know. I will gladly do that free of charge. If you need your item shipped to a loved one and want me to add a gift tag or a card (usually a flowered one-blank inside) that I will write your note of choice. I will happily do so. I can even have it mailed in a mans signature if needed :)... I do not send these blank with all orders. This is just a service for special occassions. I will fill them out for you as a service if you need something sent to someone instead of sent to you. If I gift wrap something I will probably put that inside a plastic container to secure it. I will do all I can to get your package to your pretty :).

Shipping times?

All items that are finished ship next day unless it is a Saturday then they are shipped on Monday. I ship from my home so Everything is shipped out timely and you do not have to wait for me to go to a post office like some sellers. If it is a custom order each listing has the days it will take to create down by the shipping time. Most items can be created in 1 day and take 2 days to dry. shipped on the 3rd or 4th day. I like my items to be cured and dried properly so they come to you in pristine durable and top quality.

Why Do I Like to Ship Priority?

THE REASON I CHANGED TO SHIPPING WITH PRIORITY IS NOT BECAUSE MY ITEMS DID NOT ARRIVE. AS A BUYER ON ETSY I WAS A VISTIM OF NOT GETTING MY ITEMS FROM OTHER ETSY BUYERS SEVERAL TIMES and NEVER REIMBURSED. SO TO PROTECT MYSELF AND MY BUYERS I SWITHCHED TO PRIORITY MAIL AND TRACKING. SO WE ARE SAFE. I WILL ALSO ADD INSURANCE IF YOU WANT. I MYSELF NEVER BUY NOW WITHOUT EITHER TRACKING OR INSURANCE. For an extra few dollars I have assurance my items get to me and make it to you. My customers are important to me, customer service and fast shipping is my top priority. I .create top quality designs and want to insure you are pleased and get your items safely

°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°


Insurance: On any order, any buyer. If you would like insurance on your items that will be additional charge. Please advise me before checking out so I can update the price for your area. Insurance is usually very inexpensive around $2-$5 for $100 insurance depending on amounts you require. It is a good idea since Usps does not have tracking numbers to some countrys. Please ask if you have any shipping questions. Thank you.

(International buyers I apologize for the charge change. USPS put a one amount postage on all overseas packages. I cant change it and it is so sad and unfair that hey did this- If you are buying multiple items I would happy to work out something with you on the shipping- please email me).

If you have any questions email me on her anytime day or night. I check my email every few hours. I want to make sure you get the best customer service and experience with my items. Thank you for shopping handmade.

°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°¨¨ º ¨¨°º♥º°

Clay creations Policy:

Normally I do not accept returns. My pictures are accurate and if it is made to order or custom before shipping I will send you a photo of your item for you to see before I ship. So that there are no questions on look or quality. I design and work with only the best materials. 99% of my items and materials that are created in the USA.

If items arrive damaged because of shipping that is something that has to be handled through the postal service. That is why I recomend paying a few small dollars for insurance. Rarely have I ever had items cost more than $4 for insurance and that was a $100 order. I cannot be responsible for damage done by the Usps. If the items are lost. That is why I require a priority shipping. They come with a tracking number and we can track your item and find it. You will get your items with the way I ship. You will get them in a timely manner as well.

All items are photographed in the box before shipment. Packaged and labeled. So I have photographs of the quality of the item the day of shipment. I package with alot of care and alot of wrap. I have never had an item arrive damaged.

If you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me and we can discuss it. I will decide at that time if it is something that I can do to make the customer happy. If it is a special order or a personalized order I do not accept returns or refunds. Please contact me before leaving bad feedback. I want to make your purchase a great one. Thanks so much.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. I love to create things for someone special. I love love love a challenge. have an idea. Please email me with it. An abstract photo, drawing you name it. If you want it made into clay, Im your girl. I would happily create your dream design for you.

Custom Order Rules: I require half down 50% deposit of the purchase price. paid via paypal through a reserved listing for deposit on special order. There may be variations in the full price but this will be discussed and agreed upon before listing the reserved listing with depost. Before I start the item you request we will discuss the price and hourly rates for all items. Once we both agree on a price I will put up a reserved listing for a downpayment and once payment of half is made I will create the item. The deposit is not refundable once the item is started. Once the item is listed in the reserved listing. The remainder of the purchased items amount will be listed with the finished item. You have 15 days to pay for the item. If you decide you do not want the item or cannot pay. Please contact me, The deposit cannot be refunded. But i will help and if we can work something out we will. If not the item will be listed for sale in the Etsy shop for full price available to anyone after 20 days.

Made to Order Items: I will create your item the day after purchase. It will take 2-3 days to cure depending on the item. Will be in the mail on the 3rd or 4th day. Will be to you in less than 7 days. Priority shipping takes 3-5 days. (if you need it faster please let me know- I will do rush orders, but cannot guarantee them if they do not have proper curing, drying time. Ive never had a rush order fail. But have to let you know that I cant be responsible if something is not dry when you get it.

Shipping: Depending on the request It usually only takes me one day to make your item. one day to be sanded, dried and ready for shipping. So if it is a small order you will have it in the mail within 3days, 5 at the most depending on holidays and days of the week.. If its a large order of multiple quantitys. we will discuss shipping time on an individual order basis. Thanks so much.
