About

Self professed painter and designer, an inherited family ability and hours of practice

https://www.etsy.com/shop/LonaBsCreations

I started out trying to repair a beautiful bisque doll I had bought from Goodwill which was poorly repaired. Then after much work repairing, and taking the old paint off, I repainted and sold her. Later, I ran across a green ware shop which is un-fired bisque. I bought several items and took air brushing classes to learn to paint them. My favorite was the bumblebee babies and the black babies because I loved their big eyes!

One day I was reading the Sacramento Bee newspaper when they had an article about Etsy and I thought this sounded perfect....no more getting up early and traveling to set up our booth which at that time, my mother was partners with me and was a very talented, professional cake decorator, oil painter and lastly, acrylic and we painted bisque figurines and wine glasses but it was hard work and no money. I must say, I didn't realize that Etsy would also be difficult until later.

I started on Etsy in 2009 I believe, painting sweatshirts and fringed, cut-up tee shirts plus wine glasses. I have never used stencils or patterns. I'm kind of like a free-spirited painter. Personally, even though I love and gravitate to romantic styles with roses, old time themes and sparkly, I am trying to get my 40 year old vintage jewelry listed in my shop and then I will get back to painting. I had to cut back for a few years due to my parents health.

I love to mix my paints and that's why I call myself the mad painter! I did do some teaching in a ceramic class for eyes and painting figurines at other painters request, but I loved painting my own styles and especially making my customers happy. So, hope to see you soon and maybe make something to bring you happiness!
Be happy and take care....Lona

    I couldn't do this without the help of my marriage mate of 36 yrs in June. He does the shipping and helps me wrap and clean up the messes I make as a "mad painter" Lol....

    Yep..as you can see, 31 yrs of marriage has put a little weight on me! The positive I can take from this is, that I can better relate to what my plus size customers would like to wear and try to design for them.

    My mom and dad have passed but my great granddaughter has taken up our love of Art and painting and is my strictest critic..most times she is right! Especially if you ask her! LOL!

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop....LonaBsCreations

I would like to welcome you by saying first of all, that It is an absolute pleasure in doing business with you. I am a free-hand painter therefore, most all of my hand painted items are usually one-of-a-kind unless the customer wants a design painted in a different size. I am also a perfectionist, which impels me to give my very best in my painting and customer service. My home is smoke pet and perfume free which helps those with allergies.

The customers are a designer's fan base so I endeavor to treat all my customers the way I would like to be treated and I will take the necessary steps to see that your gift gets to you in a safe and timely manner.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I do not accept returns on clothing articles unless they are defective because I do not have clothing tags attached to items to ensure that the item has not be worn. These are safeguards retail stores require on most returns. Also, it is difficult to remove perfume or smoke from a worn item and without knowing if the item has been worn, it must be considered as used.....so for clothing, please be sure to ask all the questions you want, concerning measurements, size and materials before making a purchase, since they are not returnable unless defective based on the reasons stated above.

For items other than clothing, please contact us within one week(7 days) of receipt of the item so that we can work with you to resolve any issues. The original shipping costs are non-refundable and the buyer is responsible for return shipping, which needs to include delivery confirmation.

Custom orders are not refundable unless damaged in shipping or there is a defect. Contact me asap in these cases.
Payment
I accept credit cards, PayPal and check out directly through Etsy or PayPal. Please be sure of your purchase before you buy since I ship immediately after the payment clears and if your account has a shipped notification, I cannot cancel the order. If you request a custom order and change your mind, please notify me as soon as possible, so I can cancel the order before payment is accepted and clears, since I start working on a custom order as soon as the details are worked out and payment clears.
Shipping
I ship within two-three business days after the payment is cleared. I also take special care in shipping your product safely and as described in the listing. Washing instructions for proper care of the article will be included.

Shipping is done by USPS (postal) using ground rates. For glass, expensive or heavy items, I use Priority Mail to ensure safer handling by the post office.

We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items. If you would like insurance on the shipment, or would like a faster shipping rate, let us know before payment is made so that I can include the cost to accommodate your request. A tracking number is sent to you when the item is shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
Every item that is shipped is inspected for any defects. I also paint and design in a smoke and fragrance-free home.
