Announcement Hello and welcome to LOV design! I also run the Sweet Meats shop on Etsy (sweetmeats.etsy.com), but started this shop under my own name since I've been branching out from meat-themed items, and I wanted them to have a place, too.

My twin girls watched a deep ocean program and fell in love with the dumbo octopus. They were devastated when I explained we could not have one as a pet. Then I found Leonardo, even better than a pet ;) Thank you so much for this soft and cuddly creature. It is excellently made and too cute! My girls sleep with him every night!
Seller is terrific, glad I got to own her creations
Excellent crafted Anglerfish, marianna and her lanternfish chummy. Love them both. Glows perfectly. I also have a set for a gift for that someone who has everything, will be blown away with this unique sea creature! Thanks Lauren for making these!
Colorful and Precise
My work plays on the tension between our childish desire to play and learn, and our adult, consumerist desire to collect and admire. Each piece calls out to be touched, cherished and kept, while simultaneously demanding that it be preserved in its original, immaculate form.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
I accept Paypal, money orders and cash (at your own peril). Paypal is my preferred method of payment. Note that you can also pay at Paypal with a regular credit card, without opening a Paypal account. If you are paying with anything other than Paypal, please note that I can not be responsible for payments that are lost in the mail.
Once an item leaves my hands it is the full responsibility of the Postal Service. I cannot track it down or expedite it any better than you can. I cannot be held responsible for unexpected shipping delays caused by the post office and will not refund the shipping fee or the cost of the item in these cases. Please also remember that most transit time estimates are just that--estimates. They are not guarantees.
I make absolutely no money off of shipping charges, so please don't ask me to reduce them. I only charge exactly what it costs to get each item to you efficiently and safely. I package everything in re-used or 100% recycled materials, which is environmentally friendly and keeps shipping costs down.
I ship approximately twice a week during non-holiday periods, and 3-4 times a week before holidays, but my schedule is not totally regular. Please notify me if you need something shipped right away.
Refunds and Exchanges
I accept returns on undamaged items in original condition, minus my shipping cost. For fabric items, this means they can not come back to me smelling like smoke. If your item was damaged in transit, I will replace it if it was insured. If your item was not insured but is relatively small/inexpensive, just send me the item (or a photo of it) and I'll send you a replacement. The same goes for items found to be defective in some way (though this has never happened).
If I no longer have a replacement for what you ordered, you will receive a credit in the original dollar amount for any other item in my shop.
