This was just perfect! The picture is all yellow-looking and mucky but I took a gamble and the actual case was a lovely canvas color. It was a Xmas gift for my mom and she is over the moon with it! The shop expedited my shipping so I could get it in time for the holidays and were absolutely wonderful to work with. A fantastic experience and superior product! Thank you so much! :)

About

So this art student goes into a frat party.....

...17 years, two children, four dogs, three cats and four houses later we are still happily married and making things side by side. Sometimes we collaborate, but more often than not we offer each other serious critique, encouragement, and a wall to bounce ideas off of.

I grew up in a household that encouraged creativity. My mother was a teacher and my father a research scientist who tinkered with cars every weekend. Most of my classmates saw me as weird, which I learned to embrace later on in life.

My husband grew up in a family entrenched in the business of road construction, surrounded by large equipment, rednecks and a dearth of creativity. He was the black sheep because he dared to dream about making things besides a smooth road bed and nice curbs. Life is funny sometimes and that forced career path came to an end. He returned to school and completed his MBA, because paychecks are good, and it finally put him in a 9-5 job that allowed him the time to pursue his own creative endeavors. Luckily, south Texas has a plentiful enough supply of mesquite to suit his appetites.

I do my best to offer quality items. Any vintage fabrics I use are thoroughly washed, dried and abused before being made into things to ensure they still have life in them before I make stuff from them. Other vintage items are usually hand washed or mothballed appropriately to ensure cleanliness and substance. New fabrics and materials are of course new, so those worries don't apply.

Payment
I have a fancy PayPal account that can take credit cards, feel free to use it!
Shipping
I set my shipping prices according to item weight, so if you see similar items with different shipping costs it is because of a weight difference.
I use USPS, I pack carefully and always use a Delivery Confirmation.
I will ship via any USPS class you chose to pay for. Bear in mind First Class and Priority DO NOT offer guaranteed arrival dates, only Priority Express. If you choose Priority and it takes ten days to arrive I will not refund shipping costs as you chose an un-guaranteed option.
Refunds and Exchanges
Of course I hope you are nothing but satisfied with my goods but if there is a problem please contact me within 10 days of receiving your item so we can discuss an exchange or refund. After ten days there are no refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
My home is smoke, incense, and smelly candle free. My home is not pet free, nor can I convince the cat that my sewing table is not the best perch to watch birds from.

I have an EPIC button collection, if you are searching for something specific, send me a convo and I'll see if I can fill your need.

I'm happy to make any fabric items you see in my shop in different colors or prints, just send me a convo! Likewise questions about wood and it's options are welcome as well.
