The new in Nouveau Nancy

I live and work in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, with a yard full of flowers for one half of the year and snow the other half. (Some of my garden beauties show up as props in my card photos!)

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t making things. I love the process: finding inspiration, solving problems, trying new things, handling and combining the materials, and getting lost in the moment. And I especially like it when I hear back from someone about how much they like something I've created.

I work hard at using elements with layers of meaning in my collages. I want whatever I create to bring some positive energy into the world – to delight, encourage, and support.

I was lucky enough to get to live in Brussels, Belgium from 2004-2006. I absolutely fell in love with the Art Nouveau art and architecture I saw in Belgium and France. I love the fluidity, the grace, the Asian influence, the ties to nature and history, the color palette, and more. And I have to admit I like the fact that so many of the women were painted with red hair!

I have a wonderful "day job" at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts in Wayzata, MN. The rest of my time is spent creating for my Etsy shop, gardening, cooking, singing, enjoying my amazing 'physics teacher-beekeeper-beer maker' husband, and delighting in watching my grown daughter and son become such incredible people.

WELCOME - I am so happy you have found your way to my etsy shop! I do hope you'll find something to tickle your fancy!

I have always had a special affinity for design from the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts eras. I often use it as inspiration for my one-of-a-kind cards. The designs for my cards evolve as I work on them... it's always a delight to see where the paper and stamps take me each time.

You'll see my love of ginkgo leaves, Jane Austen, birds, and all things French in my designs.

Every card I make is unique and original. The cards I sell individually are not prints or reproductions. Each design is lovingly assembled from beautiful papers, vintage pictures and book pages, and ephemera that I hand cut. (Yes, I do hand cut each of the seven or eight hearts that become my ginkgo leaf!) It's all part of my desire to create something beautiful that you will be proud to send to someone you care about.

Additional policies and FAQs
I'm very open to custom orders! Please let me know how I can help you.
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list; if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Nancy Fisher, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at nouveaunancy [!at]
