A crazy creative girl...

I started rubber stamping in November of 2003 & I loved it. I went home with ink stained hands and I spent a lot of time making cards, gift bags and tags, brag books, scrapbook pages and more, for friends and family.

In 2008 a former co-worker asked me to make her custom hand-stamped wedding invitations and my first order was started. It was all trial and error and in the end I learned so much about myself, my business, and where I wanted to take this as time went on. Her invites were beautiful and I thank her for letting me begin somewhere.

When my daughter was about 4 months old, I started to get ideas for her first birthday- I chose a cupcake theme and again my creativity grew! I made cupcake toppers, hanging decor, a banner and more for her party. I added in lots of digital elements, that I created myself, and taught myself how to use Photoshop.

I started to steadily get orders for all sorts of items from family and friends. Pretty soon I was setting up a shop and recently it has exploded!

I love sharing my passion for parties and all things adorable with all of you! I specialize in first birthday decor, and LOVE to see the finished result when customers send me photos after the big day!

{How it works...}
Almost ALL of the items in my shop were originally custom requests. I am SO busy that I don't generally have the time to take all the ideas floating in my head for themes and make all of them up and add them to the shop. I am SO grateful to all of the people who have trusted my creativity and embraced the custom process. I adore custom orders and am THRILLED when someone tells me to "do my thang!"

I'm a 30 something mom of a darling little girl.
I LOVE being a part of your celebrations and am glad you're here!

Want to know more about me? Check out the "About Me" page:

** Kindly read all info prior to purchase!
Feel free to contact me with further questions or concerns! **

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Placing an order is an agreement that you have read the policies in place. Every listing has a clear processing timeline and items are shipped according to that timeline. I may get items out sooner only if it is possible within my schedule. There are at least two notices in every listing to read policies prior to ordering.

With that being said, if your order needs to be canceled because you failed to read the policies/shop announcement/terms/timelines/shipping info, etc. you will be refunded ONLY 50% of the original purchase price of the item. You will receive a 100% refund of the shipping fee.

I do not offer refunds due to you changing your mind or deciding on something different. If for ANY reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please let me know. I will do whatever I can to make you happy! I would never send or sell an item that I wouldn't proudly use myself! :)

There are absolutely NO refunds on any digital items! Please know how to use the files BEFORE you purchase!

I take care in packaging my items... if for some reason an item is damaged in transit, please let me know as SOON as you receive the item so we can resolve it! If something IS damaged, I will often ask that you return the item to me OR take a photo of the item so I can see what the issue was to avoid it for future buyers.


Ex: Item reads "Ready to ship in 3 weeks", item will ship in EXACTLY 3 weeks.

I accept PayPal and all major credit cards. If you wish to pay by credit card or debit you can do so through PayPal without a PayPal account. Just click "Don't have an account?" and follow the directions. If you pay thru PayPal with an E-Check, please note that this will delay your order by up to 5 business days.... I will not begin work on your order until payment has been processed & cleared. Your estimated shipment date will also not be listed, or calculated, until payment processing has completed.

Michigan residents, 6% added during checkout.
Nearly all orders are shipped via USPS PRIORITY MAIL for 2-3 day delivery, tracking confirmation, & insurance.
It's best to msg me for a correct shipping quote if you are buying several items.

If you wish to have the item sent express mail, please convo me for availability and pricing.

I cannot be responsible for items that are lost and/or damaged in the mail. If you'd like to purchase insurance for shipping your order, please contact me prior to ordering.

I will ONLY ship to your Etsy address. Please make sure this address is updated and correct before checking out. Upon checkout you have two opportunities to update your address on the left hand side of the screen prior to clicking the green "submit" button. If you need additional assistance, please message me.

Effective 2/20/2014: I will NO longer ship internationally. I cannot guarantee arrival dates nor can I control the condition of the items as they arrive. Because the price is so high to ship as is, I feel it is unfair to you.

Shipping address cannot be changed after payment is completed. Please be sure this info is 100% correct prior to checkout!

I cannot "guarantee" arrival of a package. I will only ship to the address provided via Etsy with tracking, but once the package leaves my hands it is no longer in my control. USPS does not offer a guarantee on ANY shipments other than Express. Shall you want a guarantee, I advise that you request an Express shipment. :)

Yes & I love to do so! It is best to contact me with a list of all of the items you want and I can reply with the correct shipping quote. Then, I will set up a custom listing for you. :)

No shipping refund will be given if you order several items w/o contacting me prior to purchase to create a custom listing for you. Crediting shipping is much too time consuming, difficult to keep track of and most of all it takes away from time on your order. If an order is cancelled prior to shipment you will receive 100% refund on the shipping costs.

Prior to the item shipping you can note the "ship by" date on your receipt. This is typically the EXACT date your item will ship! Once I print the shipping label, a tracking number will be created. You can find this info by visiting your receipt, as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
Just in case you have further questions...
{ FAQ'S? }

Send me a message with your ideas and vision! My CUSTOM order schedule is typically booked 4-5wks or MORE in advance and I limit the amount of CUSTOM orders I take for each event weekend to best serve all of you. CUSTOM orders have their own timeline, on a case by case basis.


** Sometimes ** I am able to accommodate a rush order & additional fees will apply. Please message me if you are in need of something FAST and I will let you know if I can accommodate you.


Upon checkout, your receipt will generate a ship by date for you based on info I have plugged into each listing. More often than not I am running 100% timelines and your item will ship ON the date listed on the receipt. Add shipping time. All timeline info can be found in the "Shipping & Policies" tab of every listing.

I also ask you to leave your event date upon checkout. If you do not supply me with an event date and your event is PRIOR to (or soon after the ship by date) it is YOUR responsibility to message me to see if I can accommodate your request to make and send earlier. If I CAN process the order as a RUSH I will send you a message with the rush fee link. If you choose not to pay, or if the fee is not paid within 48 hrs, I will cancel the order according to my refund policy.

Any RUSH order is not put into que until all fees are paid.Once paid I will send a NEW shipment date notice, and your receipt will include the updated date.

Most non-custom items are printed the same day, or very soon after. Therefore, any cancellations are now subject to 50% refund of the item price. See the REFUND section for details.

Payment for custom listings must be made within 48hrs of the order being set up. You will receive an e-mail via Etsy letting you know when the listing is ready. Shall you have ANY issues with paying within this time frame, please tell me before I list the order for you. Custom orders require time to set up and fees that I do NOT pass along to you, so prompt payment helps me continue to offer custom work!

We LOVE positive feedback! We do NOT solicit you to leave your feedback. If you receive an e-mail asking to leave feedback for your purchases, it comes directly from Etsy as an automated response to your order and NOT from our shop. We urge you to always leave complete and accurate feedback. IF you feel something is amiss with your order, contact us PRIOR to leaving feedback so we can make it right. We cannot fix or acknowledge what we are not made aware of!

Due to the nature of personalized printed items, I cannot begin until I receive payment in full.Up to 3 proof revisions are included in your purchase. Shall you need more revisions, additional fees may apply. Once you have approved your order and it has gone to print NO changes can be made and an entirely new order would have to be paid for to make ANY new changes.

All design & color changes require fees. The total amount of the fees is dependent on the changes that are needed and the time needed on my part to make said changes.
I am always looking for new and updated graphics and may at any time change one graphic out for another. The new graphic will still mimic the other in colors, theme and style. New photos are not always immediately available, however, I try to provide a note to indicate such within the listing.

{PROOFS} I send any proofs over to you within 48-72 hours. All proofs are sent in jpeg or PDF form to your Etsy convos. Please check both your Etsy messages and/or e-mail for correspondence notifications. Once approved, your DIY file is sent to the e-mail on your Etsy account usually within 24hrs. You will receive a notice from Etsy that your item has "shipped" and a note from me stating that it has been sent. If you have a printed item, it will ship 3-5 business days POST proof approval.

No. Digital files take up a lot of hard drive space and I am unable to save them for an unlimited amount of time. Once your custom digital file has been sent to your e-mail the file is deleted from my hard drive within 48 hours. Save your file immediately upon receipt!

You will notice that some colors for collections appear different from one item to another. Please keep in mind that not all items are able to be photographed on the same day or at the same time. Some variance may appear, but when you receive your product all items will be a perfect match.
Also, colors do appear differently from monitor to monitor and from printer to monitor. I suggest doing a test print on ANY digital items to be sure the colors are what you were expecting. If not, you will have to adjust your printer setting to achieve the desired look.

I order ribbon and paper from several different suppliers. I use the highest quality products and heavy cardstock. Exact colors of cardstock &/OR ribbon styles may differ from the photos due to availability. If I am not able to get an item as shown, I will substitute something similar at my discretion.

I make several different items in my shop! If you see something in one theme, but want it in your specific theme, convo me for a custom listing!

Large Birthday Banners, Mini First Year Banners w/Clips for photos, High Chair Banners, Centerpiece Flags, Invites, TY Notes, Cupcake Toppers, Pennant Banners, Birthday Hats, Buffet Cards, Water Bottle Labels, Confetti & so much more!

Almost all of my 0-12 Month banners & "I am ONE!" high chair banners are 3" wide circle scallops strung on 3/8" coordinating ribbon. Each space is movable, so you chose and space your photos how you'd like! I leave lots of extra ribbon on each end for this purpose.
I CAN make larger 0-12 month banners- convo me for price & availability details.

My large banners (Happy Birthday, etc.) are generally circle scallops and each space measures about 4.5". "Happy Birthday" strung would be approx 6 feet, plus ribbon on each end.

MOST of my pennant banners are 3" wide and 4 3/4" long, each piece. Many of these banners vary in size due to the number of custom options, but are typically around 6 feet long, as well.

Larger Pennant banners are approx 4 1/2" wide and just over 6 1/2" long for each space.


If you have ANY questions regarding an order, a listing, how to pay, etc. please feel free to contact me at ANY time. I do work a regular job and I do my best to reply to you within 24-48 hrs, and usually it is MUCH sooner than that!

PLEASE contact me using Etsy conversations for all custom inquiries... I do a LOT more than just what is seen in my shop!!

See my FB page for the most up to date photos and {NEW} theme sneak peeks!

All items are handmade by ME and come from a kid-friendly, rescue-dog friendly & smoke-free home studio.
