Note from shop owner UPDATE. I will be closed for the next week and plan to reopen June 23rd. I am trying to balance a few big changes in life and my shop so I am taking this time to focus on finishing orders and will reopen when I get a big shipment out. I am about 2 weeks behind right now due to unfortunate events but am working like crazy to catch up. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
I will try to respond to emails every night.

I still haven't received my mobile. Very disappointed as I was excited about putting it in my son's nursery.

I ordered this on April 7 and I still have not received it. Shipping said it would ship out the lastest June 2 and I'm just now getting a notice on June 7 that it shipped. Also talked to seller on the 2nd and she told me it would ship out that day and it didn't. Very dissapointed.

About

Hancrafted unique custom nursery and party decor+

I originally started MagicalWhimsy Designs as a way to keep creative after leaving the corporate world and becoming a stay at home mom of my wonderful son, Blake, then 17 months. Orders came in, slowly but started the creative engines going. A few months after opening, I was emotionally and mentally blasted with a life changing “tornado” and found myself standing in the aftermath. Going from a 2 income family of 3 to a no income single parent home with a 2 yr old.

By the grace of God, as I found myself in the middle of this new storm of life, MagicalWhimsy Designs started to explode! Orders I could no longer finish in a week. Blog postings by Project Nursery, Bellini, and the Pre Baby Blog. I was delighted, overwhelmed, and so grateful.

During the last 6 years running MagicalWhimsy Designs, I am still learning to balance the work from home life with the full time Mommy life. The house is almost always covered in paper, tissue paper, and ribbon. Laundry is done a little less often, I have developed a fear of running out of coffee and have learned to function on limited sleep. I cry more now then as a preteen, but I have also developed a sense of accomplishment and renewed strength.

My son is now 7, going on 12. He is amazing and smart. He has taught me so much more then I am sure I have taught him. He has deepened my faith and given me a never ending level of hope during a time when I didn't think there was anything worth having faith in. He has given me the ability to be much more creative with my work, to see the beauty in so many more things.

Thankfully I have found myself drowning in orders, emails, requests, blog postings from around the world and so much more. Etsy has given me the ability to stay home with my son in a challenging time of for myself and my son. It has allowed me to be by his side, to hold his hand during difficult moments, moments of joy, to watch him grow, and for him to help me grow.

I work at least 50 hours a week (with my 7yr old attached to my hip...) finishing orders, answering emails, and shipping. I know at times I am a bit behind responding to emails and orders get hung up a little longer than expected. But I can tell you, that EVERY single order that comes in is a huge blessing and there is not one that I am not grateful for. Blake loves to help me and loves to see every finished order. So if your package arrives and the box is decorated, that is him helping me pack and make things extra special for the "ladies".
