Thanks for your interest in my shop. I take great pride in ensuring that all my creations contain top-quality materials and workmanship. I love creating and much love and inspiration went into each item that you see.

How to contact a Buyer on Etsy:

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I'm confidant that you'll love my work, but just in case your order wasn't what you expected I will refund the price minus shipping upon return as long as it is received within 14 days. I take great pride in my workmanship and strive to ensure that your shopping experience is a rewarding one. Please contact me if you are unhappy with your purchase and we can discuss how best to resolve your issue to your satisfaction.
I accept PayPal. But you can also pay with a credit card through PayPal without setting up a PayPal account. Here's a walk-through if you aren't sure how to do this!
PayPal also accepts e-check payments for non-account customers. Please keep in mind that if you choose to pay via e-check, your order will not ship out until the payment has cleared (about 4-7 days).
I ship orders every 2 to 4 days as most items in my shop are made upon ordering, but if you need your shipment rushed, I can often accommodate your request. I will also notify you when your order is on it's way. I use USPS, First Class Mail and, within the United States, ship each order with a delivery confirmation tracking number for your convenience.

If you would like expedited shipping such as Priority or Express Mail, please contact me through Etsy Conversations and I will send you a shipping invoice for the extra amount. IN ORDER TO EXPEDITE SHIPPING PLEASE let me know in your message which shipping option you want so I can send you invoice as quickly as possible--if I have to wait for you to check your messages, then wait for you to pay the extra shipping, time can be lost and you may be dissatisfied with the speed of your delivery. Keep this in mind and be sure to pay the extra shipping invoice that I send you as soon as possible as I cannot expedite shipping until payment for the extra service has been made.

For international shipments, delivery confirmation and tracking is only available through Registered Mail, which is an extra $12. Please be aware that if you live in Canada or outside the continental US, your order may take up to 4 weeks to arrive (the norm is 7 to 10 days, but it has happened that customs in certain countries will tie up a shipment for over a month).
Additional policies and FAQs
I also take custom orders, whether individual or a bulk order for weddings, wholesale, etc.

For wholesale customers, please contact me for my wholesale terms! I'd love to work with you on an agreement that is mutually satisfying!

I guarantee my custom orders--if, upon receiving the finished product, your piece isn't exactly to your liking you can send it back to me to be re-worked (first class shipping is refunded for "re-do" orders!). Please see my feedback for all the positive things that my clients have had to say about their custom orders!
