About

I've had a lifelong affair with words and flowers.

It started with a garden. The garden belonged to my English grandfather who knew more about plants than anyone I have ever known. As a child, I watched him make magic with seeds and soil. Many years later, I had a plot of my own and my fascination with growing things became a passion.

My home is in western Canada, about 90 miles from the Rocky Mountains. Our growing season is short. One of the ways that I found to preserve the blooms for a while longer was by drying and pressing them. And then, what to do with the stacks of papery violas and the rosebuds and the impatiens?

Making art from the dried blooms began to fit with my love of a good poem or a well-turned phrase and with my hobby of picture framing. Paper quilling and iris folding and jewellery making came later when I began to explore the online crafting communities.

I hope you can see my love of words and living things in the items I craft. I do the complete project by hand - including growing the flowers; cutting and placing the ribbons and the papers; cutting, joining and finishing the custom frames.

Shipping
All items are shipped via Canada Post and will be sent 1 to 3 days after your payment is processed. Travel time will vary with your location. Any and all customs & duties are the responsibility of the buyer.

Cost of shipping will vary due to the size and weight of your order. I will keep shipping costs as low as possible. All packages are shipped without insurance and do not include a tracking number, unless specified at the time of order. If you require a different shipping method, please contact me to make other shipping arrangements. I use the Canada Post website to provide estimates and will always refund any over-charges more than $1.00
Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is very important to me. If you are not happy with your purchase please contact me immediately. I will promptly issue a refund after you return your item(s) undamaged. Buyer assumes shipping charges for returned items unless the seller has shipped an imperfect or incorrect item.

Custom sales are non-refundable, but I will be available for any questions about the order as it is being designed and created.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most orders may be customized to suit. If you see an item that you like but you want another color combination or another poem or quotation, please contact me. All sales are FINAL on custom orders.

Please provide feedback, as this is how I am most thanked for my work.

I suggest that you do not hang any of the framed items in direct sunlight or in areas of high humidity. This will help to preserve the colors in the pressed flowers, ribbons and papers. Exposure to humidity may also cause papers to ‘warp’.
