About

A meticulous search for happiness.

You could say I'm doing exactly what I've always wanted to be doing. I've always had a love for miniatures, since my grandmother gave me a dollhouse before I was three years old. Her best friend made a lot of the furniture, and as far as I know she is still making perfectly scaled miniatures out there! As far as stitching goes, I got caught up in the addiction of cross-stitching during grade school and have since amassed a large collection of lacey, flowery, wonderful patterns that I want to do all the time. Both beading and stitching are incredibly relaxing for me and help me bring the stress down from a long day. I am a fourth-generation seamstress, though I believe I'm the first to be so unconventional!

Most, and thankfully not all, of my patterns and books are not in English (the only language I know). Because of the language barrier I've learned how to read the patterns all on my own. I couldn't tell you that I understand any of the actual words, but I get the general gist of things by now! The majority is in the Asian languages, like Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. A handful of the rest are more 'common' to me, like German or French. Oddly enough I find that the English patterns are the most difficult for me to follow along with!

Dresses are created, usually, with nothing more than the dress form, a needle, a few dozen feet of Japanese One G nylon, and glass seed beads. The beads are sewn on one at a time and hold each other together. The structure of the dress is entirely dependent on each bead being in exactly the correct place. That's where all that patience and focus comes in! A mistake can mean anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours worth of work needing to be undone to fix an incorrect bead (or stitch even, cross-stitch is a time consuming color placement craft as well!).

Shipping
> Once payment is received your art will be shipped on the next available business day. I use almost entirely recycled shipping materials.
> I will notify you when your purchase has been shipped and will include the tracking number. PLEASE NOTE: Once your order leaves my hands and is in care of the US Postal Service, I have no control of it.
> You may also request gift wrap in the "note to the seller" when you check out for no extra charge.

Don't forget to double check your listed mailing address. If your PayPal and Etsy address do not match, I will ship your purchases to your Etsy invoice address as the default, provided at the time of purchase, unless you let me know otherwise.

If you would like your purchase shipped to a third party, please edit your shipping address! PayPal will not protect your purchase if it goes missing if you give me the new address in the "note to seller"!

International customers are responsible for any and/or all customs fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping and purchasing to their respective countries, should they be assessed. For any additional information please refer to your local customs agency. Customs can delay packages by up to six weeks, this does not happen often but it can happen.
Refunds and Exchanges
Not satisfied? No problem. Physical items can be returned for a full refund within seven days as long as they're in the same condition I mailed them to you. That means no broken beads, cut threads, or other damage. I'll even cover your return shipping - just send me the receipt from the post office.

Digital items can't be refunded or returned for the obvious nature of 'digital' and how easy it is to make copies.

Please keep in mind if you plan on going on vacation or are having it delivered to a third party that you have SEVEN DAYS after the tracking number shows it has been delivered to contact me with any problems you have with the piece.

If I ship you the wrong item, I'll cover the return postage and get you the correct piece.

If an item arrives damaged (for example: post office mishandling), I'll cover the return postage and do the repair myself. If it can't be repaired, you'll get a full refund.

Feel free to request extra photos, information, or anything else if I have been unclear in describing the item or if you simply wish to see what it looks like from more angles BEFORE you finalize your purchase to save both of us time and money!

Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos if it is a customizable order. Your Computer/Mobile/etc monitor/screen may also have slight color variances compared to the actual item or even my screen. Colors may not be exact!
