Where do I begin...I love my enchanted rose...because the design is truly magical! You can tell a lot of time and effort was put into creating every piece of the rose and petals! I cannot wait to use this for my wedding. It is truly going to add a magical touch to my day! Thank you again for helping make my magical day so special!

Life-like, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind. My mother absolutely loved her bouquet of hand painted star gazer lilies from Marineta. She especially loves that they're timeless and will be just as beautiful in ten years. Quick delivery and exactly what I wanted!

Great ideas for first wedding anniversary presents especially with paper. One of the best sellers I've ever worked with on Etsy. Kept in constant contact with me, gave updates, and did fantastic work creating my wife's bouquet into a framed paper work of art! Even made sure that the shipping and delivery went well with follow ups. Very pleased and would highly recommend.

I have been working hard every evening of this past few weeks to fulfill orders with "Beauty and the Beast" rose. Excited to announce that the version of the glass cloche with the timer has been delivered. Also excited to add an XL DELUXE version.

About

Creating Something New Every Day

I have always enjoyed doing things with my hands. It is my therapy after a long day of computer related tasks at work. I find it harder to find the time to craft with a full-time job and a family but somehow I always create something new every day - that is very important to me! My family and friends have always encouraged me to try opening an online store and reach out to more people who appreciate handmade art, and I finally did it!
My Mom has a huge influence on me as a person and my creative side is totally thanks to her! She is my muse, my supporter, my strongest believer! She thought me how to sew, knit, crochet, weave, make beautiful things out of nothing! I Love you Mom!!! (Obicham te, Mamo!!!)
Her latest visit to the US we spent so much fun time crafting together! We were experimenting with wood prints and crepe paper. So pleased with the results, we had to make more and more! I promised my Mom that I will open my Etsy store as soon as possible! The day after she arrived back to Bulgaria, my Etsy store became a reality! I still cannot believe it!
I hope you enjoy what you see in my store and I promise you, it all came from my heart!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

For the Crepe Paper Flowers - please do not expose them to direct sunlight, moisture, fire. They are a paper product - direct sunlinght will eventually cause discoloration/fading of the vibrant colors, unless metallic crepe paper was used. I spray with UV protection some of my arrangements, but I have no guarantee how long it protects the color since I have not used it for more than 1 year. To remove dust build up - use hair dryer on low, cold setting and gently blow away the dust.

Glass surfaces - clean with damp cloth or remove away from the paper art and use window cleaning solution and wipe off excess dampness before you place it back close to the paper art.

Wood prints, use damp cloth (water) and wipe off the surface gently.

Do you offer local pick up?

No, I only ship to address. Thank you for understanding.

How long does it take for shipping Domestic and International?

Depending on the shipping option you select, it is explained with estimated number of days. USPS priority, for example, is fully insured against breakage and takes 2-3 business days domestic USA and 7-10 business days international to arrive after shipping. Etsy automatically calculates your shipping based on your location and the size/weight of the package. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS MAY REQUIRE A CUSTOMS FEE. You'll need to find out if your country charges a fee/tax to import merchandise from the USA. It may be required before you can get your package after it goes through customs.
