Happiness: A need to create, a pile of cast off materials and some four legged cuteness.

My mom was always encouraging me to be creative - and busy - by sending me and my brother outside to play in the woods and making us homemade play dough and finger paints. We didn't have a lot of money but she was very resourceful. We always had a nice, cozy home and fun things to do. Plus, we had stuff no one else had (which I'll admit as a kid wasn't always cool). All of this stuck with me into adulthood and I am so grateful for that.

I started selling mosaic pots at my local farmers market about 15 years ago. I then started to branch out into other functional home decor items made from reclaimed cupboard doors, frames and hardware. The design for my refillable notepads came from my own need to constantly jot down ideas and make lists. I didn't like using the boring little spiral notepads for my list making and the pretty handmade books with permanent binding didn't work for me either. I needed something cute and something I could refill after I used up all the pages. After some experimentation, the Rags + Bones Refillable Notepad was born! My resourceful nature has inspired me to create many of the other items in my shop using scraps from my notepads and other miscellaneous projects. I have even found a way to use tiny circles of paper from my hole punch!

Starting my Etsy shop seemed like a great way of sharing my wares with the world. I have reached people all over the United States as well as Europe and even Australia! I love knowing that someone on the other side of the world is using and enjoying something I created with my own two hands.

I want the things I create to have some kind of meaning beyond their function. The recycled nature of what I do is part of that meaning. Another part of it comes from my deep love and compassion for abused, neglected or otherwise needy animals. A portion of all sales in my shop is donated to animal rescue. My two dogs, Jackson and Huckleberry, and my cat Lewis (all rescue) make me laugh every day. They remind me to takes breaks, to play and to get outside and enjoy the moment! I also volunteer at my local shelter and I love getting to know each dog's personality and the bittersweet joy I feel when they find their forever home. Any little thing that can be done to help an animal find its way to a loving home is worth doing.

•Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, mailing address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

• Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

• How Long I Store Your Information

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

•Transfers of Personal Information Outside the US

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the EU and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the US, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

• Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the US you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
