Mother-Daughter team decides to try something new...

We opened Cracking Good Crafts in October 2013 because we needed a creative outlet. By May 2014 we realized that the things we wanted to make were too broad for just one shop, so we decided on a laugh to open another one... and another one... and another one (you get the idea!). We currently appear at fairs as Leaves of Paper, bringing items from both Origami Retreat and Gillian Lancaster Art! (Links below!)

Check out our shops:
-For paper goods: LeavesOfPaper.etsy.com
-For original art: GillianLancasterArt.etsy.com
-For origami art and gifts: OrigamiRetreat.etsy.com

    I'm the right brain creative butterfly. I create in whatever medium appeals to me that day, and I create the digital and watercolor items you see on the shop. I built our website and maintain it. I also have a day job as a graphic designer.

    I help Gillian wherever needed. I also have a day job running my Etsy shop, OrigamiRetreat.

Cancellations: not accepted

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


We currently accept Paypal and credit cards. We expect payment within 24 hours of your purchase. If you have neither paid nor made contact within 24 hours, we will consider the purchase to be abandoned. We only accept cancellations on items that have not yet been shipped. We do not accept cancellations on custom orders. We ship as quickly as possible (sometimes within an hour!) so please take that into consideration before buying.

We reserve the right to change our minds at any point, but what you see written here is what we are using currently.


Our aim is to ship to you as quickly as possible, but you will have to wait no longer than 2 business days. We hate waiting for the "Your item has shipped!" email as much as you do! If possible we ship on the same day as you place your order. We take every precaution to make sure that your item arrives in excellent condition, but we cannot take responsibility for what happens during the shipping process.

All items are sent from the Philadelphia area, so it should take 1-3 days to ship to the East Coast, 2-4 days to the Midwest, and 3-7 days to the West Coast. If you would like faster shipping or extra shipping services (such as insurance or tracking), please contact us before placing an order so that we can set up those options for you before submitting your purchase. Please be aware that some extra shipping options will cost extra.

We are happy to ship internationally. For an accurate quote, please contact us. We will send you more detailed information once we have processed you purchase.

Additional policies and FAQs

If in doubt, please contact us. We are quite friendly and would rather answer your questions ahead of time than have you be disappointed once your item arrives.
