Finally doing what I love.

Since I was a child I had artistic abilities that seemed to catch the attention of my family, friends and teachers. It has always been what calms me and makes me feel happy and centered. After not having a definitive path as an artistic concentration in college, I quickly gave up on the concept of doing what I love.

I worked a string of other jobs that were always fine at first, but would eventually break my spirit. Luckily many people I knew nudged me towards Etsy.
Always having doubted myself in the past, I found so many reasons not to do it. But soon the support was getting so loud that it was hard not to finally buckle down and try.

I'm so grateful that I did, and that so many people pushed me in this direction. My husband has been such a huge supporter. He's a neat freak and had to look the other way during some very messy beginning ventures.

I feel so fortunate to be able to spend my days with a paintbrush. I sometimes have to stop and realize how truly thankful I am.

Welcome to With This Dish!
I work on a small scale in my home studio, and enjoy the work I do so very much.
I spend my time creating items that I hope bring the same joy to others that I felt painting them.
All items are created and stored in a smoke free home.

I love what I do and take pride in working hard. However, I do like to try to maintain a healthy balance of work and life. Any e-mail or correspondence that is received outside of office hours will be answered during the next business day. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I gladly take payments through PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout. I will accept money orders as well, and request that the payment is received in no more than 14 days.
Should a purchase need to be cancelled please contact me within 48 hours.
Orders that require more information to be completed but that is not provided within 30 days are considered ABANDONED. I will cancel these orders and they are non-refundable.
There are countless shops and artists that have amazing products that I adore. That being said, I may entertain the idea of a swap or trade. I am a little picky, and would ask that you respect the price of my item against the price of your own.
I ship through the good ol' USPS. Items are shipped with a confirmation, and you have the option to upgrade for a different shipping method. Shipping change requests must be made within 24 hours of purchase. Please note that any changes made to standard ground USPS shipping will be at the buyer's cost. This includes special packaging requests. All items are wrapped securely with recycled bubble wrap and layers of cardboard and/or torn magazine pages. I use recycled or pre-used packaging whenever possible, so if you require or prefer new or packaging suitable for gifting, I will need to know at the time of purchase. Items are shipped within three business days of purchase.
***Any deadlines or expedited shipping wishes must be made known at the time of purchase! I cannot guarantee same-day shipping on items. Insurance will need to be purchased if desired.
Although I offer international shipping the buyer is responsible for customs fees.
You will be notified if something is not shipped on time due to inclimate weather.
I will ship to a verified giftee address.
***All orders are painted after received. The proper amount of time based on current production must be allotted. I am not responsible for purchases made by customers who have not checked my lead time. Lead time is mentioned in the shop announcement, individual listings and in the invoice.
Refunds and Exchanges
My return policy is limited. I do not offer refunds for shipping errors (ie. getting lost or damaged in the mail) unless insurance is purchased on the item shipped. I respectfully request that the nature of the damage is described and photographed for my records. If you are looking to have the item repaired I will gladly do so, if possible.
Custom artwork cannot be returned or exchanged once complete. I will not process returns or exchanges due to colors not being exact. I do my best to represent colors accurately, but please allow for some deviation due to different monitors and limitations of digital photography. If it is crucial that a color be matched, I require a sample of the color by mail. Another option is to find a paint color at a home improvement store, and give me the name of the company and color. I will pick up the paint chip and mix my colors accordingly.
Refunds and exchanges are to be requested within 48 hours of receipt.
Buyer is responsible for shipping cost of items returned due to damage.
Additional policies and FAQs
Be sure to contact me with special orders or questions you may have.
I will do my best to accommodate color and size requests.
I prefer to be contacted by Etsy Conversation. This provides a record for both parties that will protect us both in cases where Etsy may need to be involved.
Please let me know if an item is a gift, I will wrap the inner packaging at no cost in a presentable fashion and add a short personalized note.
Items are created in my smoke free home. I do have cats and dogs, so if you happen upon a stray "whisker" in your order, my apologies. Just be glad I don't sell edibles. :)
