I ordered a custom globe to be used as a pseudo guestbook for my little one's nursery. It was absolutely exactly what I asked for! Everyone at the baby shower was in awe of the craftsmanship and the wonderful color! I am so pleased with my purchase!
About Limefish Studio
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SHOP NAME:
Well, the short version of the story is... I needed a new brand for my business and needed it to be 100% unique and memorable. And, I'm thrilled to say it has definitely seemed to work. Almost every single time I tell someone my business name they repeat it back in a confused/intrigued way. And then the conversation continues... it's a great "hook" I suppose you could say! When toying with name ideas, I knew I no longer wanted my name or my initials used. Simply, I just don't think they're memorable enough. I wanted something lighthearted with a bit of humor. So... I basically combined two things I love that have wonderful personal meanings.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR LOGO:
Since logo designs are some of my favorite projects - this was a fun one! I wanted it to be young, fun and subtle. The combination of simple and handwritten fonts play perfectly to my indecisive nature. I also wanted to have a logo which could be broken down into pieces well - so I can use the fish alone or the text alone and both would still be visually interesting.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SHOP:
Quite frankly, opening this Etsy shop was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I was working a full time job, doing grad school online, coaching volleyball, and doing my art business on the side. It was always a late-night and weekend job for me, but I dreamed of more. Finally.... Etsy helped make that possible and in August 2012 I quit my day job! I've been so thankful ever since.
TELL US ABOUT THE ITEMS IN YOUR SHOP:
I love dabbling in a little bit of everything, and the majority of my projects are custom made-to-order. Nothing makes me happier than creating something for someone specific and helping make their ideas into reality. Many of the items in my shop are small gift-type items too... perfect for all occasions!
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION:
Everywhere and everyone. Some of my favorite projects have been clients requesting "unique" ideas... and me having to figure out how to make it happen. As for my paintings... a lot of my inspiration comes from nature, movement, and music. It's fascinating to see the different "feelings" that emerge in an abstract painting based on the mood of the music I was listening to.
YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT:
My hubby & pets.
Time to be creative.
YOU'RE NOT A FAN OF:
Putting laundry away.
YOU WOULDN'T GUESS THAT:
I've jumped out of a plane and swam with sharks, dolphins, and stingrays.
ONE DAY YOU HOPE TO:
Be a mom.
Have my own store/studio (not in my house, lol).
DO YOU HAVE ADVICE FOR OTHER ETSY SHOP OWNERS:
Photography is key! We have to remember that these tiny preview photos are the first quick chance we have to try and connect with someone.

Accepted payment methods

CUSTOM ORDERS: placing your order with payment reserves your spot on my schedule. Orders will not be completed without payment. Limefish Studio cannot be responsible for delays in production time due to the buyer's delay in payment. Limefish Studio does not reserve dates until you place an order with payment, so sending me a message does not reserve your date.
The majority of my work is custom, made-to-order.
Select items are ready to ship.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS on all sold items are subject to any transaction fees that were incurred by the shop.
I do not offer refunds on DIGITAL FILES. You cannot "return" this item or receive a refund after the file has been sent to you. Your purchase constitutes agreement to these terms.
I do not offer refunds on CUSTOM ORDERS as these were created specific to your request. However, if you are unsatisfied, you have the option to request a discounted rate on a new item or the option to return your original item to have it adjusted.
Should damage occur during shipping, please notify me as soon as possible and provide me with clear photos of the damage so that I can file an insurance claim. You must maintain all damaged items and packaging for possible presentation. A claim takes about a month to process, but when it goes through, I will give you the option to receive a refund, or have the item re-made. If the insurance claim does not go through, I cannot refund the order or re-make the item.
This has never happened, but in the event of a personal emergency, natural disaster, act of God, or other unforeseen circumstance, I am only a single person and I am my only employee; therefore, if I am physically incapable of producing your order, I will give you the choice to either receive it at a later date, or receive a refund of the full purchase price, with no further responsibility on my part.
