About

I actually have a PhD in neuroscience.

Me, right now:
Seriously. I am kind of a geek...
But having a science background has inspired a super-creative, edgy, witty side to my crafting and events. I recommend that all artists try to get one or two academic degrees if possible :)

Me: BScH, MSc, BEd and PhD from Queens University in Canada.
Add in small kids, paper, lace and a random assortment of inks; you end up with Lace and Twig...

My humble beginnings:
My mom bought me a sewing machine a few years ago. It sat in my basement for a year before I pulled it out of the box and started experimenting. No one taught me how to sew - I just tried a bunch of things and had fun with it (and drank wine while I did it). I started making dresses for my daughter (without a pattern) out of clothing that didn't fit her anymore and then went on to add flourishes to them like tulle linings and such. These are still her favourite dresses because I encourage her to play in them, get dirty in them and throw them in the washing machine afterwards...she actually went swimming in one of her fancy dresses and I could not have been more proud :)

It went from there...I kept experimenting with materials (like ribbon, glass, wood burners and inks) and techniques (like screen printing, ink stamping and hand stamping); and practicing again and again (and again). I am not an artist. But I LOVE art and I am a hard worker. The combination seems to be important. I adore purchasing a new tool or material to play with and come up with a new creation.

Although I am a Canadian at heart, I now split my time between this fair country and New York, USA. There are a lot of similarities between these countries...and I am in love with the warmth of the people and the richness of rustic culture in both.

Lace and Twig Style:
This shop is a blend of bachelor-pad-esque flavour and delicate, lace-and-love decor that tells a story about love. This story combines raw, rough, nature lover with elegant, chic and boho attitudes...is this kind of like your story? I hope so...

Thanks for visiting...hope we connect soon.

    I love parties, Canadian lakes, drinking champagne in a canoe, the gorgeous grace of branches and twigs, and the way glitter looks in the sun. Parties should be fun, cheeky, silly and drenched in symbolism. Oh, and glitter, eh. Lace and Twig Inc

Welcome to lace and twig! Boho, eco, nature-inspired twig party decor...straight from the Canadian north :) These creations are unique, raw, hand sewn and made with love! Translation? They are perfect with their imperfections (threads, bark, glue, paint, rough-around-the-edges, bits and all). If this sounds like your life (as it does mine), then this shop is for you.

Because I am a small business and I LOVE what I do, I provide personalized attention to you, prompt communication, excellent service, and completely original designs (you will not see these items anywhere else) for your most important day and your life! I LOVE custom orders and abstract concepts....convo me with your mind's adventure. I will try my best to match your image.

Also, because I am a scientist at heart, I promise to provide solutions for every issue. Please note though...I personally create each item with my hands...there are no machines on this end to provide you with what you might expect from mass-producers such as Amazon or Walmart...hence, if you are a machine-made lover at heart, perhaps Lace and Twig is not for you.

Have you received your lovely and it feels like a bit of an artistic let down....contact me. Not everything in life is perfect...but that doesn't stop me from aiming to find a solution for you! I will take into account your timeline, expectations and my ability. Every individual customer experience contributes to building my beloved business. YOUR experience is the most important part of my day...(well - your experience and my children's happiness). I cherish your decision to shop here...and my goal is to have you want to come back and visit.

Convo me or contact me directly at cathy.ferri [!at] mac.com.

I use UPS shipping for some items: This will result in a 7 day or less delivery time, WITH tracking in North America. Not all packages are shipped with UPS - there may be an extra fee to upgrade.
Please note that UPS shipments may require a signature upon delivery...if you are not home, your shipment may be re routed to a local access point for pick up. Please check your tracking number for details on your package location. Of course, you can always convo me with questions and/or help with this :)

******Address corrections: Prior to shipping: please let me know and I can change this PRIOR to your item being shipped.
******Already shipped and you gave me the wrong address? You will need to pay a fee of $20 to have your address corrected and re routed.

ALTHOUGH I SPLIT MY TIME BETWEEN NY (USA) AND IN (CANADA), PLEASE ASSUME THAT ALL SHIPMENTS WILL BE MADE FROM CANADA AS MY SCHEDULE IS IN FLUX.

Shipping times:
If you need an item by a certain date please let me know IMMEDIATELY. I will certainly do my very best to accommodate; however, a rush order might require additional expenses to expedite via UPS.

UPS provides GUARANTEED DELIVERY DATES! Canada Post and USPS standard shipments do not. Wondering if your shipment will be shipped via UPS? Convo me :)

Shipping within North America via UPS: approximately 6 days depending on your location.
...with Canada Post/USPS standard shipping: approximately 2 weeks.

CUSTOMS: Lace and Twig covers all customs and duties fees associated with deliveries in North America.

DO YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA, Australia, New Zealand and EUROPE? As of April 1st, 2017, I will NO LONGER accept STANDARD shipping orders OUTSIDE of North America and Europe. Every shipment will require extra shipping fees to allow for a tracking number to be added on. All orders made with standard shipping will be cancelled unless RUSH shipping is added on. This RUSH shipping fee will allow for shipping with tracking only (and will NOT allow for a rush service as it is not available via shipping from North America).
Customs fees/duties outside North America: I declare the value of your lovelies with honest modesty.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love creating...if there is a way to make your creation better, I will do it :)

EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT I MAKE IS MADE TO ORDER...hence, there will be variations in ink intensity, burning intensity, alignment of words, etc.

Each finished product may vary in appearance and colour, due to the handmade nature and use of raw/upcycled/natural materials. This includes changes in font style, font size of vinyl lettering, box size and shape. Because of this they will be unique quality products for you to enjoy.

*****WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENAMEL MUGS, GLASSES and mugs with VINYL!!!!
*DO NOT SCRUB THE OUTSIDE OF THE GLASS! THESE ARE HANDPAINTED/HANDINKED AND ANY ABRASIVENESS FROM A SPONGE, FINGER, CLOTH, WATER PRESSURE MAY AFFECT THE IMPRESSION.
*DO NOT soak your glass in water.
*DO HANDwash the inside of your glass with luke warm water and gentle soap.
*Air dry

MUGS with INK:
Microwave?
Yes!
Dishwasher?
RECOMMENDED that you hand wash INSIDE ONLY. ****PLEASE NOTE: some customers have reported ink coming off after dishwasher use - as such, I recommend HANDWASH INSIDE ONLY. These are hand painted, hand made items that may not suit your dishwasher cycles/strengths, detergent, etc.
Do not scrub, rub at the ink. Do not scratch at the ink (dry or wet). Do not soak your mug. Do not leave your mug in packaging as this can also be abrasive to your ink. Although I have found these mugs to be VERY durable, I cannot account for variations in use and/or washing/dishwasher discrepancies.
Mugs are heat set with glaze to protect the ink.
To wash: Wash inside only with soap and water. Is the outside dirty? Wash in those spots that do NOT have ink on it.

PLEASE REMOVE ITEMS FROM THEIR PACKAGING AND DO NOT STORE IN PACKAGING.

Questions about this? Convo me...I am always close by :)

Regarding custom orders:
Do you want to ADD personalization to an existing listing? There will be a fee of $10 for your extra request...please convo me and I will set up the listing for you.
Please note that I reserve the right to alter/change aspects of the request to fit the product size/shape/material. Eg: spacing, wording, etc. may not be exact to your vision. Further...I will follow exactly the note that you provide to me (spelling mistakes and all). If you want a combination of what my listing is AND something extra, you need to communicate it to me specifically. Otherwise, I will create as per your note only.

If you love what I have created for you, please provide 5-star feedback! If something is not right, please contact me immediately. I know that with communication, we can sort out any and every problem!
