Announcement   LOVE LIVES HERE... paintings, prints and fabric by P. Carter Carpin
My new line of fabric LOVE IN BLOOM, is showing at the Quilt Market this month and will be available to order soon. Please note, I will be out of town the month of June so although I will keep my shop open, please note that orders may take a while to ship during this time. If you need to contact me please call 804-615-4003.

I used to be a product and textile designer but am now doing what I love.... making art. Happy Art! Corny? Don't care!
Happy art is naturally what comes out of me. I love color, I love painting, pattern and patchwork. I love combining my more sophisticated art with art for kids, I love my husband and son... I love life. I am a very lucky gal who is living her dream life in many many ways. How did this happen? Lots of hard work, big dreams, faith, HOPE,love, and never giving up despite the challenges. For me, losing hope is losing it all. Just don't do it please! You just never know what will be coming round the bend.

Lots of great things are brewing for me and my family.
Check back for new listings and exciting news coming soon.
Unfortunately, I will have to limit my time on the road this year and will be cutting my shows in half. I will miss the adventures of meeting you all but really feel it is time to stay home with my family a little more, redirect some of my marketing efforts and play momager to my son's budding acting career.

Most of my listings are reproduction digital prints on paper and giclees on canvas but occasionally I have an original for sale. They go fast so keep a lookout if you are interested in an original or convo me to see what I have available. I do not list all of my originals here on ETSY.

Some of my pieces are painting with collage where I incorporate original patterns from my days as a textile designer. Look closely and you will see elements of photo silkscreen, hand stitching, applique, hand dyeing, etc.. I hope my work will make you as happy and hopeful as it makes me.

If you have seen me at a show and do not see what you are looking for just let me know. I may not have all of my designs listed.
If you are any where near Richmond Virginia you can also see my work at the Shops at 5807 (5807 Patterson Ave) but please be aware the selection is minimal. Email or call me and I will make sure the piece you want is at the shop.
My work is being licensed by many fine companies and I will be listing those products in the coming months.

If you are interested in setting up a wholesale account or licensing my work for your company please convo me for more information or contact my agent Julie [!at] artsdg.com.

Thank you so much for visiting P. Carter Carpin's Serious Whimsey...
I truly appreciate it.
I hope you will find something here to make you smile!xxoo

Felix the fox is fantastic. Owner communication was key as the color uploaded was altered from original image. Pcartercarpin sent us the correct color image immediately and we continued with purchase. It was very nice to know prior to receiving. We are so happy with Felix. I'm a return customer and all prints have been a charm...packaged well and sent in super condition. Thank you, Carter! Best~

Thanks so much for visiting P. Carter Carpin's Serious Whimsey Etsy shop! I hope you have found what you are looking for and if not please contact me.

I would like to clarify something about my print dimensions as I have had some recent inquiries of late. Even though I call my largest print on paper size 11 x 14, the truth is the print is a little smaller, 10 3/4 x 13 3/4. Without trying to sound long winded I have done this for a number of reasons. First, I call it 11 x 14 so you will know what size frame to buy if you are not going to mat it. But the truth is, most frames have a lip on the edges which tends to cover part of the edges of the art so after much trial and error and various complaints about the 11 x 14 size not fitting in a 11 x 14 without covering part of the art, I decided to reduce the art slightly and allow the white border of the print to fill the "lip" area of the frame. It works beautifully with the frames I tried it with. Please also know that my prints come on an 11 x 17 sheet so you must trim the top and bottom if you are going to frame it without a mat in an 11 x 14 frame.

If you are buying a standard 16 x 20 mat for your print, the openings are usually a standard 11 x 14. This is what has caused concern for some people lately but the truth is I have never had any complaints that a standard mat did not work. If you find your mat does not work with your print I will gladly ship you a 16 x 20 one that does work upon request. The price is $15 plus shipping. Since I never know how someone will frame my work, I had to find a happy median which works in the majority of cases.
I have put an awful lot of thought and effort into this decision and hope it makes sense.
If you have any more questions please convo me and I will be happy to explain further.
Thanks so much! carter

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept Paypal, checks and money orders.
Please allow one week to two weeks for me to ship prints on paper. Although I try to ship much faster than this, sometimes I am out of town doing shows so that may explain the longer delivery time.
All print orders are shipped priority mail with delivery confirmation in a flat box and the prints are packaged in a protective sleeve with backing board.

The giclees on canvas will be shipped UPS and if in stock will be shipped within the one week time frame. However, if a canvas is not in stock please allow three weeks for delivery as they are custom made and shipped directly from my printer.
Shipping
If you have a particular deadline in mind I will try and work with you on a speedier shipment than stated above. All orders are shipped in the usa priority mail. This usually takes 2 - 3 days in transit.

I do not ship internationally at this time as I have not found an affordable outlet for this but I hope to explore some options this at a later date.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will gladly replace all damaged or lost merchandise. If you are unhappy with your prints on paper in any way I will gladly exchange your piece, provided you pay to have the prints shipped back priority mail with delivery confirmation. I feel the pictures accurately show the pieces. If anything, the prints will look much better in person than the photo! Please feel free to ask me for color help or suggestions for a series of prints.

As for the canvas, I am sorry but I cannot accept returns on these items as they are custom made and very costly to make and ship back and forth. Please try and see me at a show if you would like to see these items in person.
Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I do wholesale my prints on paper so feel free to contact me about setting up an account.

As for the custom pieces, I do custom originals sometimes but am very busy and this process can take up to 6 months.
thanks so much
