Announcement    * * * 05/21/19 After 22 years of making decorative paddles, I am moving on to other sea inspired designs. The paddle listings have limited quantities and as soon as they sell out, I will not be renewing them.

The future listings will continue to offer baby name letters and adding fun beach art, beach wedding signs, beach house signs, fish art, turtle art, mosaic beach art, mosaic necklaces, seascape necklaces featuring healing crystals and beach glass... and all kinds of fun art I sell locally in the beach festivals and farmers markets.

Thank you for your patronage over the past 22 years as I transition into a new phase of designs.* * *

About

Living on a sailboat in the Bahamas gave me ideas for creating art and home decor.

I can't remember a time when I haven't been passionate about the beach and lake. My earliest memories of the beach as a wee one was giggling and splashing water on my beloved Grandmother at the edge of the surf at Atlantic Beach, N.C. I can still hear her say "ooh whee; I have to sit down! The waves make me dizzy!" I remember being fascinated by the sea creatures in the wading pools.

As a child, I grew up close to Lake Norman north of Charlotte, NC and enjoyed fun filled days of fishing, swimming and water skiing. All of these childhood memories plus living aboard a sailboat in the Bahamas one long summer inspired me to do something creative with my passion for the water and sea life.

Since 1997, I have been creating coastal cottage home decor under the brand name of Seaweed Designs. My bench-made cottage tables and framed artwork have appeared in Coastal Living Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Magazine and various other wholesale trade magazines. I was honored that Coastal Living Magazine has also used my pieces in two of their Idea Homes.

A dream come true... November 2018 I bought my beach house and moved to Ocean Isle Beach, NC. I am so grateful and extremely happy in my new home.

If you're looking for unique and casual nautical beach decor, I hope you will find that perfect accent at Seaweed Designs (aka Paddle Decor). The designs currently are centralized on paddles from personalized wedding guest books paddles to personalized children's letters and paddles to home decor for your cottage, beach house, Caribbean cottage, lake home, river cabin, mountain lodge or children's bedrooms.

I design and make my pieces in my home studio at Ocean Isle Beach. My helper Kirk help me with the sawing and gluing and other shop processes at his shop.

I enjoy making personalized wedding guest book paddles and personalized nursery oars and paddles. For inspiration, please visit my Pinterest boards http://pinterest.com/seaweeddesigns/nautical-wedding-ideas/ and http://pinterest.com/seaweeddesigns/nautical-nursery-ideas/. I offer my unpainted oar peg racks and oars/paddles to satisfy the artist in you. Want something customized? Please ask me...

I also love to create themes for sailing, flip flops, sea turtles, mermaids, surf art, beach glass, sea shells and many more. If you're in Sunset Beach May through September, please see my work in person at various craft shows in the beach area.

Returns and exchange details
RETURN POLICY:
I work hard to make customer service a top priority. This means I do whatever it takes to guarantee your experience with me is a positive experience.

At this time I do not accept returns or exchanges due to the custom and labor intensive nature of my work - most items are made to order.

Sometimes, despite my best intention, things may not work out. If for some reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact my shop (conversation) within 3 business days of receiving the package, and I will try to accommodate you.

If you purchased a stained paddle and the color wasn't exactly what you were expecting in person, please contact me. If I agree to exchange another color, you will be expected to pay for return postage (and insurance) and also will be charged for shipping the exchanged paddle back to you. If any doubt on the stain color when you order, please ask for a sample before I stain it.

DAMAGED GOODS:
- I pay for insurance on your item at my own expense. Please open your item as soon as you receive it. If there is any damage, please contact me within 3 days of receipt and I will file a claim for you. In order to file a claim, I will need photos of the box address label, photo of the box if any visible damage, photo of the packaging materials (paper, bubble wrap, etc.), photos of the damages. With receipt of the photos and description of the damage, I can file the claim and get started making another order for you.
Payment
Payment is accepted via the Etsy Direct Checkout Credit Card processing system (credit cards allowed by Etsy in US Dollars), or via Paypal.

Shipping
USPS MAILING LEAD-TIME:
I use calculated shipping. During checkout, you can choose your preferred method of USPS mailing services.
- PRIORITY MAIL - USA addresses 2-3 business days to arrive from N.C.
- PARCEL SELECT - USA addresses 2-9 business days to arrive from N.C.
* - PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL - Canada and Australia, 10+ days to clear customs and arrive at address.

HAWAII or ALASKA ADDRESSES - there are two mailing options:
- USPS PARCEL SELECT: Could take 3+ weeks for delivery. It is my understanding the package is held in CA for a full container and shipped by boat.
- USPS PRIORITY MAIL (plane - allow 2 weeks or less) is faster and more reliable delivery.

* CANADA ADDRESSES:
- I offer USPS International Priority Mail with country maximum weight limit of 20 pounds.

* AUSTRALIA ADDRESS:
- Due to country limits of 42" length box, I can only mail 35" and 41" paddles to Australia.
