Four Little Letters...

I first began painting in 2004, when I made name letters for my daughters new room. Because of those 4 little letters, I was encouraged by my family and friends to start a business, which grew into a successful endeavor. In 2010, I took a break and closed that shop in order to complete a Masters program. During those two years I missed the interaction with customers and the feeling of success that comes with running a business.

The holiday season of 2012 was my first "real" attempt at painting peg people, when I painted Nativity sets for my friends and family. Needless to say, I feel in love with the little wood pegs, and PegBuddies was born! I love the creativity and imagination they encourage when children (and some grown ups!) play with them.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to wood and paint, and I have loved all of the creative ideas that my customers have requested. 2013 was my first year of PegBuddies on Etsy. I have loved the community, and especially interacting with my amazing customers!

During the day I run around with my six crazy kids being a mom, but I LOVE having a reason to stay up late to create artwork that will be cherished for years by your family. I will always stay a one-woman show, so you are sure your PegBuddies are painted by my two little hands.

I look forward to working with you!

    I'm a mom of 6 who loves to be creative every day. I'd much rather have a paint brush in my hand than folding laundry!

Hi! My name is Rachel. I am a mom of six that has been painting for close to 15 years now. My current obsession is wooden peg people- the possibilities are endless with a blank wooden doll! I love all things custom, and am often inspired by suggestions or requests by friends and customers.

Returns and exchanges
I always love a good return policy. I know that you will love your PegBuddies but if you receive your order and are not happy with them for any reason, I will ask that you ship them back to me using your choice of method, but it must include tracking and delivery confirmation. Once I receive them, I will refund your purchase price. (minus initial shipping charges.)

This full-refund policy will NOT cover custom family sets or wedding sets, as I would not be able to restock these items to resell. In this case, I will refund only 50% of the purchase price.

In three years of business, I have yet to have any returns or negative feedback, so be confident that you will LOVE your PegBuddies. :)
I only accept PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout, both of which allow for debit or credit cards. I do not start painting until an order is made, which includes payment in full.
Each of my little PegBuddies takes anywhere from 30 minutes to over two hours. I usually work on orders daily, and do my best to get them out within the week of ordering. Birthday orders are always pushed to the front of the line, so please let me know if you are ordering for a gift!!

I will ship most all items by USPS First Class Mail, but will use my discretion when upgrading shipping. I am happy to provide expedited shipping if required, additional cost paid by buyer. Please make sure the Etsy shipping address is correct!

I will ship internationally, but only first class mail unless buyer requests expedited shipping. If you do want tracking or expedited shipping, you must contact me for an exact shipping cost in order to pay the extra postage.

Please note international packages can take up to 4-6 weeks AFTER leaving my shop! Also note, I will not ship as a "gift" in order to avoid customs fees. All additional customs or import taxes charged are the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in ordering in bulk (more than 5 of any sets), please let me know and I will arrange a small discount!
