This is a beautiful, beautiful day book. And it is so perfectly thought out that it is very good at what it does.... keeps track of my life day to day. And the best part is the customer service. Ships quickly. Leslie even gave me a refund when the shipping ended up being less. A fabulous small company with lovely, quality items. I will always shop here. And always sing it's praises.

About

I create beautiful and useful paper goods for your every-days….

More than ten years ago, I designed and created a line of stationery and paper goods called Small Meadow Press. It was born out of my desire to fashion earth-friendly stationery to truly support a woman's daily life….calendars, letter paper, greeting cards, notebooks.

I had to stop in 2009 to care for my dear mom who had Alzheimer's. It has been two years since she died (peacefully, at home!) and I've been pouring my creativity into a few online offerings. But I've lately had the desire to be making again.

So I am using up all my paper stores that have been in my studio all this time, waiting patiently, and will be sharing what I make here in my Etsy shop. I have a real passion to create beautiful things that serve a woman's life. And at as little cost to the earth as possible.
All my papers and ingredients are as recycled as possible, or tree-free, or vintage.

I am in what I call my Rosehip years, done with my mothering and caregiving for the moment and exploring how best to live my life. Some of what I offer here are the tools I've created to live life more simply….some are just for beauty…and some are to help us stay connected and loving and tending our lives as well as we may.

I truly appreciate your interest and hope that you enjoy exploring my pages here….

Hello! You've arrived on the doorstep of my shop where I offer the earth-conscious paper goods I delight in creating. At the moment, I am making things from the paper stash I kept after closing Small Meadow Press in 2009 to care for my mother. So, depending upon what tree-free supplies will be available in the future, some items may only be available for a short time.

It is important to me to make everything to do with my business tread as lightly upon the earth as possible, so I aim for simplicity and thoughtfulness at each step along the way, from the designing to packaging to shipping.

The artwork in my creations may be a combination of vintage images (mostly from my beloved antique book collection), my handmade stamps, antique paper ephemera and occasionally my photography.

Payment
I accept both PayPal and credit cards through Direct Checkout.

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you need help along the way.I will do my best to solve any problems, answer questions or unravel ordering mysteries.
Shipping
All items will ship after payment clears, and within 5-7 business days. I make a trip to the post office once a week, in an effort to keep life as balanced as possible. But should you want something more quickly, it never hurts to ask...I may be able to accommodate your wish.


POSTAGE
I ship via the U.S. Postal Service.

This will be my first go-round with Etsy's new shipping calculator and have high hopes that it will be accurate and helpful, tho' I am not sure how it will handle a combination of items. If the difference between the actual shipping costs and what you paid is more than $2.00, I will gladly refund the difference.

Using recycled and tree-free packaging is very important to me. I use 95% post-consumer boxes to ship, occasionally re-using a box that came to me, recycled tissue paper and labels. And I try to make your package as pretty as I can, when possible, with added embellishments...but it is always put together with gratitude...

All items ship to the buyer's address, as it appears on Etsy.

You will receive a notification message once your item has shipped with tracking number, when applicable.
Refunds and Exchanges
In the many years I created and mailed my stationery goods through Small Meadow Press, I never needed to give a refund or resend an order because of damage in shipping.

With my Small Meadow Etsy shop, I strive for the same level of satisfaction with the orders I fill and send out. If you are ever unhappy with your order, in any way, please get in touch and I will do my best to remedy the situation, to both our satisfactions.

Buyer is responsible for:

✦ providing a correct mailing address on Etsy.
✦ providing the correct spelling of names and messages when ordering.
