NIGHT LIGHTS, LAMP SHADES, KITS, CLASSES, AND SPECIALTY LIGHTS:
Need a gift? How about a little something for a) more than one person, with b) about the same monetary value, that is c) thematically geared toward each individual? When you think about it, Night Lights are perfect for Showers, Holidays, Birthdays, New Homes, Teacher or Realtor “Thank You" gifts (for that client who purchased the new home - or the teacher who went above and beyond with your child), and so many more Occasions.

Maybe you need something even more special. Do you have a Wedding you're planning and would you like to give coordinating and unique attendant gifts? (It could be for a Baptism, Bat Mitzvah, Sweet 16, Communion, any Commemoration, really!) Love Lights will shed an elegant and unique glow on your gift giving for these special occasions with an offering that will commemorate and remind the recipients for years to come. Finally, something they can really use!

Hard-backed Shades, Kits and Classes round out MaidenShade’s repertoire. Replacing a damaged or weary Lampshade is as easy as choosing a new fabric and trim and providing dimensions of the existing shade. Work with me to find the perfect fit!

Kits are available for those who want to make their own Night Light. Kits come complete down to the easy to follow instructions and an online video. You can even choose from two shapes/sizes, an array of fabrics and trims!

♥ WORKSHOPS/CLASSES ♥
If you are in the Homosassa area, come take a Chalk Paint Workshop, Soft Collage Workshop, or a Create a Night Light Class. Classes are a great way to learn some tricks of the trade, and you get to go home with your own masterpiece!

Thank you for stopping by and happy shopping!

About

♪ I GET KNOCKED DOWN ♫

...But I get up again!

When I was laid off from my long time job during the economic melt-down in 2006, my path was forever altered.

Faced with joblessness, I took off in what I considered a practical direction (AVA, the administrative me). I secured a lucrative permanent part-time position as a virtual personal assistant, and marched on.

Next, I opened a repair and service driven, but still creative site (MaidenShade, a lampshade repair and custom design store) and finally expanded into my literature and art with Studio Cygne - which contains the soul of me.

I went into a booth in 2016 and started selling Dixie Belle paint products. From there I opened my own brick and mortar store (Out on a Whim) in 2017, moved into a new location (MaidenShade at Arts & Ends) 2018, and here I am - moving onward as usual!

I invite you to join me as I continue on my journey, flying along with both feet dangling in mid-air, my spirit fully engaged.

♥ Namaste ♥

Hello, thanks for visiting my "MaidenShade at Etsy" store.

If I had to say only one thing about my creative side, it would be that I LOVE custom work! When I am engaged by a client, I am completely immersed and you have my complete attention.

On the human side, I need your feedback, please, please leave it for your purchases. It is my gauge as to how I am serving my customers.

Returns and exchange details
Returns:
DOES NOT APPLY TO DIXIE BELLE PRODUCTS! These products are non-returnable.

Items may be returned for a refund, minus return shipping and in the same condition in which it was shipped, within 5 days of receiving your purchase. Any damage that occurred during shipping is not our responsibility. Please contact us and tell us why you are returning the item. We will contact you with instructions.

Refunds:
If you paid for your order through Pay Pal, your refund will be sent to you through Pay Pal. Orders paid by credit card, check or money order will be refunded by check. Refunds will be made after approved item is received at the MaidenShade studio, in the same condition in which it was shipped.
Payment
PAYMENT:
We are happy to be able to offer PayPal as the recipient of credit card and PayPal payments at Etsy. Gift cards are also welcome as are personal checks, e-checks, and money orders.
Shipping
SHIPPING:
DOES NOT APPLY TO DIXIE BELLE PRODUCTS! These items are usually drop shipped directly from the factory. You have 3-days to document and report any damage.

Shipping is provided through the USPS. Items purchased with personal checks, e-checks, or money orders will ship when such payments have cleared the bank. We ship M-F (excluding holidays). Depending upon when an order's payment is received and cleared, it may ship the same day.

If I find your shipment is substantially less than what was estimated, I will always refund the difference. If you order multiple items that fit into a box, envelope etc, we will either not charge you, charge just enough just to cover the overage cost, or refund the difference of what you were charged if charged too much. Our items are so varied in size and weight, it is difficult to perfect shipping costs in the case of multiple purchases. Therefore if your order appears to NOT have combined shipping, don't fear - it will in the end. We DO combine shipping.

If you are local, we are happy to arrange a scheduled pick-up and/or do a personal custom consult.
