Pidg in a Nutshell

Creating has always been a form of therapy for me; dabbling in selling it on and off. Recently my doctor snatched me out of work due to illness mingled with, oh I don't know, my body giving out... pshh... minor setbacks. BUT, I've wanted to dive into my shops like I have in the past a hundred years ago so now I have the time.

I clean, I cook, I craft, I rear smaller versions of myself, who I refer to as 'Pidglets'. Sometimes I don't do any of those things and I end up writing for hours which is the other true love in my life.

I'm plagued with initials like ADHD and OCD so in my daily routine there are several large and gaping holes; thankfully I am well adept to improvising. Big fat cute wink at the end of that one. I will tell you this... I may do it all but it is never graceful.

PidgApeg shops, yep there are 3, are my way of balancing family and work. I have 6 amazingly awful and beautiful pidglets, 4 girls at the top and 2 boys at the bottom. One has been married off and 5 still have to return to me everyday.

I love homespun crafts and absolutely adore making them. When I start something I rarely know where it will end up. Some people think that's creativity, I think it shows my ADHD. But either way, I love what I do.

My business hours depend on my insomnia. The moment 5 of my 6 kids roll off the bus - production stops and it's time to chat, play and relentlessly tease each other.

It's kind of funny talking about me to tell you the truth, just so you know, I think I'm gonna copy this bad boy for the other shops too. If you, for some reason, want more drop by my blog. The place I air our sarcasm, sweetness, stories and daily antics of a bunch of everything.

Find me at: (the blog)
And of course Instagram where I take horrible pictures of mostly nothing

Please stop by my other Etsy shops: Oopsies...the other 2 are closed right now. They're under construction or destruction on something like that!

Thanks for stopping by the Cottage, just keep the light on when you leave!

Warm wishes,

Thanks for stopping by PidgApeg Cottage!

This shop is where my heart is. I love primitive and homespun crafts. I'm not big on patterns, I just figure it out as I go. When I think something is done, I add one more thing to it then call it good. The fun part is I usually don't know how it's going to end up.

I sell quite a bit locally but now I'm making a push for my Etsy shops.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I don't offer refunds or exchanges unless my item was not accurately described. However, if there is a problem or you are not satisfied with your item do contact me, my goal is to have both buyer and seller happy with the entire transaction.
I accept PayPal. Payment is expected within 3 days, but I know things come up and if that isn't workable just let me know.
I ship by way of USPS 1st class mail at least 3 times per week. My post office isn't open on Saturday's anymore so I'm sorry I can no longer ship on weekends. If it is a custom order we will discuss shipping individually.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept CUSTOM ORDERS. Let me know if you need anything that is not listed, or if you need more than what I have up. I usually mix paints and colors to make everything random and unique, so if you would like more just let me know and I can create it all at once.

I DO require a non-refundable deposit equaling half of the final price before any work is started on ALL custom orders. After work is approved and completed the second installment will be listed and the item(s) will be shipped according to our agreement.
