Announcement   Hello Friends: First, thank you so much for your support during what has no doubt been a tumultuous time in my life. Your orders and the joy I have packing them ground me in ways you cannot imagine.

I'm in the middle of a life shift and while it is certainly going to be exciting down the road, it is a little nerve wracking right now.

As you know, I am committed to bringing you ethically sourced stones and truth in my listings. I've wanted to expand my inventory and offerings (subscription boxes, anyone?) for a long time and yet too often things come up in life that interfere with my plans.

I've decided to take a more relaxed approach to planning and a more diligent approach to the things that for right now at least, seem to come easy.

During this time, where the external seems like a jigsaw puzzle with missing pieces, the internal is discovering and rediscovering remarkable things and I'm more in touch with my intuition than ever. My senses feel sharp and my heart knowing.

I'm going to temporarily pare down my gemstone offerings (Notice, I did not say eliminate!) so I can begin offering my readings and medicine/blessing bundles again.

I'm also going to begin sharing my knowledge of quartz crystals and their individual properties based on their markings and the shapes of their facets. I used to teach a fun class on this subject and I think you'll find reading the individual crystal listings enlightening, so please check in even if you can't buy right now. I hope reading each crystal listing will be educating, intriguing and fun.

So, for the weekend of July 8th and 9th, the shop may seem a little dull and missing the sparkle, but let me assure you, there is plenty of sparkle to come! I hope you check in and join me!

Again, I cannot say it too many times. You all are still the best supporters of me despite the many twists and turns in my life over the last few years....it means the whole world. Thank you from my heart.

Bright lights! Laura


I will be posting updates on Instagram and my shop Facebook Page!

Have you seen me on Instagram (my new favorite hang-out!).

Please read my policies. They help us avoid misunderstandings and keep me (and hopefully you) feeling good about our experience together

Earth & Spirit: I have been a Reiki, & Crystal Healing Practitioner and intuitive reader for almost 28 years. I firmly believe that each one of us has an individual process for healing and while most of my healing sets, grids and art pieces come with basic notes on how to use, please know that your own intuition is always best. I am happy to answer any questions as long as it is understood that I am only offering insights and intuitive answers, never a replacement for professional medical care.


NOTE: While I (and many other people) have had wonderfully healing experiences working with gemstones, purchasing them from me should not be considered a promise of results or a replacement for professional medical care of any kind, including counseling. This is an item you may purchase for its beauty and quality, but not because I have promised financial, emotional or physical wellness.

A note about the gemstones I offer:
You can be assured that even if you are not particularly sensitive to gemstone energy and just love stones to love them, you will feel something in the pieces I choose that is personal, powerful and yet loving all at the same time. I source from local vendors to save on shipping and I will only buy from suppliers who have direct connections with the mines.

Thank you so much for taking a peek! Laura

I purchased Laura's medicine bundle and it was everything I could've hoped for and MORE! I could go on and on about the personalized details and the both the love and energy she put into this creation, but it felt so special and truly just for me. I would give it ten stars if I could and will forever return to Laura if I'm looking to find something extra special and heartfelt, either for myself or another. I am extremely grateful and would recommend her store to anyone and everyone who wanted a truly refreshing and heartfelt experience on Etsy. Thank you Laura, you beautiful soul! What a gift YOU are !!! The medicine bundle was a bonus ;)

About

It is my hope that wandering through the sections of my shop will feel like stepping through a portal of the most magical kind.

NEWS! One of my large doily dreamcatchers is currently featured on the beach house set of the new Netflix series Grace & Frankie!

I put my heart into everything I make and offer here and hope you can feel it when you look at my offerings.

I long to dispel the myth that sellers on etsy must have a defined brand and that shops with a variety of entirely different items cannot survive alongside streamlined shops with clear themes. Etsy is a never ending shopper's paradise and each of us has something to offer.

I make everything you see in the shop unless I specifically mention a collaboration with another artist or am offering gemstones. My "Altar Vignettes" have been praised by author Denise Linn and right away she saw that they are created with love.

My paper wallets were featured on Stylehive and Design Sponge. I was invited to create art for journalist swag bags at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and my collaged pieces have been prominently displayed in galleries throughout the Midwest.

It is my honor to host this space and invite you to browse and always remember, everything you see is one of a kind.

My packages are sent to you beautifully wrapped with care and should you choose to try an intuitive reading, always know that I will set aside everything else to focus only on you.

If you'd like to know more, I'd be overjoyed if you stopped by my blog or checked out my facebook page, please join us.

This is an item you may purchase for its beauty and quality, but not because I have promised financial, emotional or physical wellness.

Some have suggested that we sellers include lines in our listings indicating that our descriptions should be considered entertainment. I draw the line there. While occasionally I include wildly humorous anecdotes in my listings, there is nothing about my own work, experience, knowledge or understanding of subtle energy and vibrational healing that is meant to entertain the masses."

If you visit my blog and leave a comment I may keel over in delight!
If you purchase one of my items, love it and leave me positive feedback I'll be intoxicated with appreciation!

Payment
I accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover through Paypal and Etsy, though I prefer Paypal.

I will hold items on occasion, but may ask for a non-refundable deposit if the item is over $20.00.

My shop is small and I am sorry, but I do not offer trades.
Shipping
I always ship by U.S.P.S. First Class or Priority mail. I will refund any shipping overages that exceed $2.00. If for some reason I don't on your order, please feel free to send me a message with a gentle reminder. One woman show here, folks! Sometimes things get missed!

I absolutely adore including little extras in your orders. Because of the overall theme of the shop, I may include an oracle card, extra stones, earth offerings, a candle or even just something pretty I think belongs in your box. If you would be offended by or uncomfortable receiving an oracle card, please do let me know. I would never ever want you to be unhappy with your parcel.

I also include flower petals with some orders, but they are unscented beyond the natural scent of the flowers. However, if you are sensitive you may want to send me a message asking me to not include flowers or anything scented in your order. I've shipped to people with severe allergies and never have we had a problem.

I love shipping internationally, but cannot be responsible for Custom's fees and taxes on any order. Unfortunately, due to a rash of disappearing international orders and the inability to purchase delivery confirmation on such orders, I cannot be responsible for refund or replacement on lost or missing packages. I am so sorry, but international orders are at your own risk. I do everything I can to ensure that the package is clearly and properly labeled.
Refunds and Exchanges
I urge you to shop mindfully and read the item descriptions carefully as I do not offer refunds unless an item is defective or arrives broken. In the event that a refund is warranted, please allow 2 weeks for processing after I receive the returned item, such is the nature of a small business. Your original purchase funds may have already been invested in shop supplies or to pay a bill.

Dream Catchers/Mobiles: These items are made with delicate vintage doilies that arrive in my studio with missed stitches and fading, occasionally rust from a pin. They are washed in natural soap or hand-dyed with natural dyes (with the exception of reds and purples). The metals and ribbons are usually mixed, tarnished or faded. This must be considered part of their charm.

If you are unhappy in any way, please contact me by Etsy conversation explaining the reason why. If I am at fault I will repair, replace or refund the item, depending on the problem. If you are simply unsatisfied with your purchase, we can discuss a possible resolution. I will always do my utmost to resolve any problems and provide a happy outcome.

I am sorry, but I cannot cancel orders unless you contact me within two hours of purchase, so please shop mindfully.

I want you to be happy with your shopping and even browsing experience in my shop, so please do contact me should anything disappointing occur.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feedback:
I love reading your comments! Positive feedback is handmade seller's gold. If you are happy with your purchase I hope you'll let me and others know by leaving feedback. If you are unhappy, please consider contacting me before leaving feedback so that I can work with you to remedy the situation. I love happy customers and want to make sure you are pleased!

I have a cat and two dogs and while I keep them away from my fibers, I cannot promise that someone extra sensitive would be safe. I cannot be responsible for any allergy flare-ups, but I do my best to send only fresh items.

I do burn white sage and sandalwood incense while working,. I try to keep my fabrics in closed cabinets, but the truth is that many items will have traces of holy scents. Please send me a message before ordering if you have any doubts so we can discuss solutions. I do not offer refunds unless an item is defective or arrives broken, so please shop mindfully.
