Recipe boxes

Smithville, Ohio

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    All good things must come to an end. This will be my last holiday season selling recipe boxes on Etsy. Once they are gone, they are gone. Thanks for all of the support the last 12 years. It's time to move on to something new!

I’m starting to mark things down for the closing sale. I’ll keep dropping the price every month until most everything is gone. I’m not remaking items, so once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Please see my shop policies for more information and FAQs.

Functional By Design

I'm a WAHM of three wonderful kids, one of whom I homeschool. I'm also a freelance writer, and I would love to publish my own fiction books some day.

I love to create things, especially when I can turn trash into something beautiful. I love thrifting, so it seemed only natural to combine my two loves in my Etsy shop!

My shop has taken more than one direction over the years, and I am having fun learning where my shop will go in the future.

Look for lots of owls, birds and other woodland critters in my shop.

  • Carly


    Carly's job is to inspect all boxes, whether they are for shipping or holding supplies. She takes her job very seriously, and sometimes she spends hours inspecting a box. It's a boring job—she often falls asleep—but it's an important job.

  • Nacho


    Nacho is my constant companion while working. When I'm in my craft cave, he lies at my feet. When I'm on the computer, he sits beside me to keep me company. Nacho listens as I brainstorm ideas and helps me think of the next best seller.

Returns and exchange details
If you are unhappy with a purchase for any reason, you may return it for a refund (minus shipping) within 7 days of receipt. Buyer is responsible for return shipping unless the item is damaged or defective. When I receive the item back in good condition, I will issue a refund.

In the event that an item was damaged during shipping, contact me as soon as possible so I can correct the situation. Please retain all boxes, items, and packing materials in order to submit the claim. In order to file a claim, I will need photos of the damage. I am not able to file a claim without photos of the item and packaging, so I will not be able to offer a refund if you do not provide the photos.
I accept direct checkout and Paypal.
It is the customer's responsibility to ensure their Etsy addresses is correct and current. I ship to the Etsy address. If this address is not correct for any reason, please contact me as soon as possible. If the item has not shipped, I will reprint the label. If the item has shipped, it is the customer's responsibility to pay for shipping once the item returns to me.

I add delivery confirmation to every package, and you will receive an email from Etsy with the tracking information. Please note that tracking information can be delayed up to 12 hours.

I do wrap and pack items carefully, but occasionally packages do get damaged. Please keep the box, packing material, and all of the items in the shipment. I can not file an insurance claim without proof of damage.

I ship as soon as possible, usually within 2 days. Please read my shop announcement for current shipping times. If you need your item shipped soon, please let me know and I will let you know when it will ship.

I do ship internationally, and I try to be as accurate as possible in my shipping prices. It's very hard to get an accurate combined shipping rate for international orders. If there is an overage more than $1, I will refund the excess.

All items ship from the United States. It is the buyer's responsibility to pay all local taxes, duties and customs fees, if they apply.

I do wholesale orders, convo me for pricing and terms. Sorry, no consignment unless you are local to me.
Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

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 fulfil 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 toimprove 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

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information 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.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
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 (like 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.
