Welcome to Words & Eggs, the Etsy shop!

I am so happy that you have taken the time to visit and look through my handmade items. Everything I produce is strictly done by hand and with a great attention to detail. I do not use Photoshop or any other computer software to enhance my work. I use paper (often vintage papers that I repurpose), heavy duty paste for neatly glueing leaves on my family trees, and pen and ink when completing lettering projects.

I am a huge supporter of all things handmade and, as far as I'm concerned, computers don't hold a candle to the beauty and care of custom work done by hand.

I am also an avid researcher of all things design-, French-, typographic-, and paper-related. I generally post my favorite finds on my blog, which you can access here:

I am also on Twitter:

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
As these are all custom items, there are no refunds or exchanges. If you encounter any issues, however, please do not hesitate to contact me as I certainly do not want anyone to be disappointed with my work.
I accept Paypal.
I ship Priority Mail for family trees and lettering projects; I ship regular First Class for all other items. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd prefer another shipping method for your order. (Note: you will, logically, be charged appropriately for speedier methods.)

I can complete Paper Clips Journals within a few days of your order. I do, however, require more advanced notice for custom family tree orders and lettering projects, preferably one months' advanced notice from when you would like to receive the item in question. But if you'd like a tree, regardless of "due date," please get in touch with me and I'm sure I can work something out. :)

I'm not sure about you, but I enjoy the lovely packaging of gifts almost as much as I enjoy the gift itself. With this in mind, I take great care (and enjoyment!) out of packaging all my orders. From colored baker's twine to gift tags, to decorate Japanese washi tape, you can be sure to receive a beautifully packaged gift.

Additionally, I'd be happy to include (or even fill out) a gift tag for you if you would like. Just let me know!
