Announcement   Hi - sorry, got off track for a bit, life keeps getting in the way! But I'm happy to say we have a new grandchild, a baby girl! I also have 2 older parents who I want to spend as much time with as possible, and they are needing more help, so I will make items as I find the time.

Let me know if you are interested in something and I can put you on that animal's list and let you know when I can get to them!

Family circumstances have put my Etsy shop at a lower place on the totem pole of priorities, but I am able to do a little each evening. Just can't guarantee anything on any type of time frame. But if you aren't in a hurry and have a request you can email me and I can put you on a list for the animal you need and get to them as I find the time. I am able to do a bit more through the winter as farmwork slows down a bit. Also, I no longer have my website and unfortunately someone bought the domain and now has made it into a japanese cartoon porn site (Oy!) so unless that is your sort of thing, I'd stay away! I am hoping to find help with a new site soon but definately not till after the new year. Cheers! ......................................................................................................................................................

I'm sorry to say that my little experiment with taking orders ahead of time and THEN making them just overwhelmed me beyond understanding. My health suffered, my grandkids suffered, and my foster children suffered because I ended up chained to my desk and the rest of my life had to be put on the back burner. Because of this I will not be taking pre-orders. Instead, I will go back to my old way of running the shop (making items THEN listing that exact item with pictures) but I will rotate through a shorter list of the most popular animals and list them each week.

This doesn't mean you can't let me know you that you are in need of a certain animal...it just means that you can email me and let me know, and I will work it into the rotation of items I make. For example, if a customer really wanted a sloth, they could let me know, and when I get to that animal I will make extras so that there will be plenty to go around. I just don't do well under pressure, and I have to have enough time for the kids, my husband, and the farm! Thank you for understanding!

This is a lovely little adornment where craft and art harmoniously combine. I bought it for my girl as a present and she loved it. If she's happy and happy. Couldn't recommend it more.

Additional policies and FAQs
Warning: The following is not for the easily offended or faint of heart:

SPECIAL ORDERS: I will be taking special orders in the next month. If the item is something I regularly make, the price will be the same as usual, and there will be no need to pay in advance. HOWEVER, if it is a unique request (likeness of a pet, or an animal I have not made in the past) the price will start at 50.00, and MUST be paid in advance.

All REQUESTED and special ordered items must contact me within 24 hours of the item being listed, or they risk their item being put in the shop for the general public to buy. Payment for requests and special orders are preferred within 24 hours unless special arrangements have been made. Remember, when I take the time out to make something special for a customer, that reduces the time I can spend making things for the general Etsy public and my shop. You wouldn't take something from a shelf in a shop, carry it around for 3 days so no one else could buy it, then put it back and change your mind. Minds change and problems arise in which you can't pay, that's OK....just TELL me, don't leave me hangin'.

I hate to sound grouchy about this, but I have started way too many custom pieces only to have the requestor disappear into a black hole somewhere. I just don't have time to make things and NOT be paid when I could be making things I know I will get paid for. We live on a farm people...life is pretty hand to mouth at times, and I work WAY too hard to be jacked around. Period!

WHOLESALE: I am sorry, but I just cannot sell at prices any lower than what I have listed here. They all take the same amount of time to make, whether they're retail or wholesale, so I'm really shooting myself in the foot if I take any less. The best I can do is save you a few bucks on shipping.

TRADES: I have yet to do a trade, only because I need the money so much more. So most likely, no, but I am always flattered and appreciative of the compliment.
