A Ministry of Artwork

Welcome to nicplynel! The name of my brand is based on the first three letters of my names: Nicole Plymesser Nelson. I have a strong Christian faith and this has become a ministry for me. My shop sells prints of my handlettered and painted artwork. I don't just love making art, I need to do it. It clears my head, centers me, and then sharing it brings me even more joy. Most of the artwork comes from my morning faith art journaling time. I sketch, paint with watercolor, and then do the lettering and add colored pencil highlights--all by hand. Then I scan everything into the computer and print them right from my home computer. I share the art and my thoughts about it on my blog

I have been making art since I was very young. My mom still has cards that I made when I was in elementary school that I signed, drew barcodes on, and even had a logo for...all based on my favorite stationery store in town. I asked for a calligraphy kit when I was 10 for Christmas and taught myself using books. As I progressed through school and college I was drawn more and more to watercolor and collage. I love sharing the wonder and joy of finding beauty in lines, colors, and shapes with children, and teach elementary art full time. I am also married and have three kids.

Etsy has become the perfect venue to help share my collection and the joy of art with others. Thank you for looking at my shop and I hope that not only did you enjoy looking, but you found a piece of artwork you would enjoy sharing with others as well.

    These watercolor and mixed media illustrations come to me during my Bible studies before my busy day as a wife, mom, and art teacher start. They keep me going through the day as touchstones of faith. I hope you enjoy them as well.

Returns and exchange details
I hope you fall in love with your purchases and never feel the need to return anything! However, should you be displeased with any item, I will accept a return for refund within one week of receipt if you contact me to let me know it's coming back. The item must be in the original condition, and greeting cards must still be sealed in their cellophane envelopes. I will refund only the original purchase price, not the original shipping or the cost of returning the item to me. For items that are damaged in transit, please contact me at once to resolve the situation.

I will try my hardest to replace damaged items, but due to the fact that many are one of a kind pieces please be aware some will be hard to replicate.
I now accept paypal and have direct checkout. Processing time for completed designs is usually 2-3 business days.

I can create custom orders usually within a week. Please check with me to make sure my schedule allows this.

If requesting very large quantities, please convo me first to make sure that I can get the paper needed if it is collaged. I can usually complete large special orders in 2 to 3 weeks, depending on supply availability and quantity needed since each card is completely handmade. I will ask for half of the final payment on order and the other half upon completion and before shipment.

I will not cancel any order without first attempting to get in touch with you, but in the event of no contact or payment I will be forced to cancel.
All orders for cards in the shop will ship 48 hours within payment received via the US Postal Service,excluding Sundays and holidays.

Special order shipping will be based on the size of the project. Very large orders require a deposit and then full payment before being shipped. Orders of $50 or more will be insured and have delivery confirmation. Overnight or Priority shipping will be an additional charge.

International orders are mailed via USPS First Class Mail International. Any customs taxes charged in other countries are the responsibility of the buyer.
I do not share any information, or use your email or any other contact info for any other purpose other than to fulfill orders.
