Unearthing life's beauty and humor.
Hello - nice to meet you!
I'm Monica Kremer, the creative heart and soul behind lifeonmars*.
I opened my lifeonmars* etsy shop in 2013 after finally succumbing to my life-long love affair with illustration and a growing yet healthy obsession with witty punchlines. The result is a line of paper goods and art prints infused with a unique sense of modern humor and a fresh, stylish design.
Mum of two and communications director by day, self-taught illustrator and graphic designer in the wee hours of the night, I'm now channeling my creative energies into designing and producing new items for lifeonmars* during my spare time.
A Brazilian who later moved to Europe, I believe that my works are a subtle mix of the vibrant and fun-loving spirit of the land I came from, and the stylish and modern aesthetics that influence me now. I also love playing with color and shapes as they bring life to each of my creations.
I find inspiration in... many things! My travel adventures around the world, my beloved Brazil, serendipitous encounters, late-night conversations, soul-stirring music, Japanese design, nature’s curves and lines, kids’ über sense of humour, all sorts of taste bud ticklers, and many more.
Except for the postcards, which are printed with an external provider, all my items are designed and produced at home, in my little studio by the Lake Geneva (with a gorgeous view on the mountains!). All material and processes are eco-friendly, this is very important to me.
etsy's wonderful handmade marketplace and community has turned out to be the perfect place to share the results of my love for beauty and humor, with people all around the globe. I have a big smile on my face each time I ship to a new destination :) Above all, receiving positive feedback from customers and other etsy artisans is more important to me than selling. Having these interactions feeds my creativity, and I appreciate the support and recognition; it’s the stimulus I need to keep going and grow.
I'm enjoying every minute of this crazy ride. I am constantly discovering new sides of my creativity, perspectives, and funny bone. The coolest thing I have discovered by far, is how much I enjoy bringing a smile on someone's face.
Thanks so much for stopping by - I would love to hear from you!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
We don't send any invoices or payment information with orders.
We will deal with your order promptly, but please allow 21 days for delivery for international shipments. We do not guarantee arrival times on international shipments.
As packages cross borders they may need to go through customs. Usually this happens very quickly and does not affect the shipping time for your order. However, every now and then it can cause a delay. Unfortunately this is out of our control. Items being shipped could be subject to import duties, taxes, and tariffs as imposed by the country the product is being imported to. The customer is responsible to pay the import duties and taxes incurred by customs when the product reaches the country of destination.
If your package is a gift and you would like to make arrangements to have it ship earlier, please send us an email and we will get working on it right away.
If you feel that your order is taking much longer than it should, and your local post office was not able to help, drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do. When contacting us, please let us know your order number and the full correct delivery address so we can help you as soon as possible.
Please note lifeonmars cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged once despatched, both within Switzerland and when being posted.
Refunds and Exchanges
Yet, if you're not satisfied with your item, please get in touch with us. You may return your products within 10 days from the date you received it. The product must be returned complete, unused and in the original packaging. Upon return we refund the price of the product excluding the shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Nothing beats giving a sweet gift from the comfort of your living room and lifeonmars* is here to help. Simply indicate that your order is a gift with a short message in the "Note to Monica Kremer" field prior to checkout, including your personalized message to the recipient. We'll type your note on a complimentary card and wrap your gift in butcher paper. Then, at checkout, enter the gift recipient's shipping address.
We will do our best to reply to your emails as soon as possible, and in maximum 48 hours (office hours), except if the shop is closed (we will say it on the site!). Depending on your request, some extra delays can apply, and especially if it means we have to search for the information (suppliers, transporters and other partners we work with).
We advice you to ask your questions by email, but if you absolutely want to talk with us, please feel free to leave your contact details and phone number, and we will call you as soon as possible.
