She was very communicative and updated me on every part of the process. She took the time to make sure they were exactly what we wanted. We LOVE the cake toppers - they really look like us! Can't wait to use them for my wedding!

Terry is awesome! Quick service and very responsive. We really like that she sent us a picture and asked us if wanted anything changed before she shipped it!
A Girl With Big Ears.
Once upon a time, there was a very little girl with big ears. She loved nature, and animals, and to draw.
She had 3 brothers that bugged her, and teased her, as brothers do, but loved her and taught her to love Bruce Lee and horror movies.
As this girl grew up, she traveled, and worked, and drew. Then she got married, and had her own pets, and children, and she painted for them.
When her children grew up and moved out on their own, the girl painted for herself. Things like animals, and cute, funny and scary things that made her happy. She hoped they would make other people happy sometimes too.

Please note: During the week, I have a regular job in the mornings, so if you send me a message when it's morning here, you may not get a reply until the afternoon. I am on Pacific time.
If you don't see my listings for custom orders in my shop, it's because I have been kind of swamped with orders and need to catch up a bit. I will re activate the custom listings when I am ready to take new orders.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- For residents of BC Canada, you are charged 7% PST (sales tax)5% GST on your order., but not on shipping.
TO the USA and Canada:
----Orders generally arrive in 6 to 11 business days BUT customs can slow things down occasionally, BUT be sure to BUY WELL IN ADVANCE of the date you need it.
----If you are in Canada or the USA and would like to upgrade the shipping to xpresspost ($27. in 4 to 6 business days) for your package please convo me before making purchase so I can change the listing for you.
TO EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA and AUSTRALIA
---I'm sorry but I do not ship to South America.
---ALL DUTIES are the sole responsibility of the buyer. That means that if customs decides to charge you duty for the goods entering your country, (or VAT) that is for YOU to pay.
I have nothing to do with this charge and can't tell you how much it will be exactly. Every country is different, you will have to search for your country's import tax fees on purchases if you want to know the amount before it arrives.
I know the UK is also pretty strict about collecting their VAT from goods. I think they charge about £7 VAT and Royal Mail charges about an extra £8 fee.
---If you live outside the USA or Canada, your items are send small packet regular air mail and can take 2 to 6 weeks. I can send them expedited which can take 1 to 2 1/2 weeks, but it is quite expensive (about $75.00), so if you need them in that much of a hurry, let me know before you purchase and I will change the shipping on the listing. It;s obviously best to order early
---Also I do not marked the customs forms as "gift" because it is illegal to do so, and I can incur hefty fines.
Refunds and Exchanges
PLEASE let me know if you have not received your order after 6 weeks. I have never had an item go missing in the mail, but it's not impossible.
