Deck is really beautiful, brilliant art with a lot of humour in it. The cardstock is excellent. On my deck the printing was a little off-center, and I wrote to the seller about it ; she suggested either an exchange if I sent back the deck, or a discount in the form of a 15% refund, so that was fair. I am very pleased with this deck, it is really beautiful and unique.

Item is as described HOWEVER, HEED THE REVIEWS CITING poor communication, shipping delays and items not shipped until Etsy complaint filed - all of these happened to me. It really is a shame because there are many other items I like and would purchase but I will NOT risk it.

Hi Michele, Thanks for your feedback. I apologize again for my poor communication during this particular period. I have taken your situation to heart. I'm sorry your shipping refund did not compensate for my slow shipping on this order. Best wishes, Charissa

Embracing the Unexpected

My development as an artist and a maker has been deeply influenced by a life on the west coast, and it's inclusion in the Pacific Rim global community. A love of loose edges, things weathered by time and the elements, being in relationship with materials rather than dominating them completely, surfing change, being in the present. Not surprisingly this aesthetic has also been the way I have approached the development of my business. Keep moving, reinvent the wheel, find what works, build empires from junk yard salvage. I believe in redemption, in messy passages leading to buried treasure, sustainability as a life style, and in the beauty of imperfection. I look forward to each relationship encountered in my work and the journey we will craft together.

there was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. when she was good she was very very good, and when she was bad she was horrid.
