Katie is absolutely wonderful! She was very accommodating throughout the whole process of making my shoes, and the end product was everything I could have hoped for and more! I absolutely love them, and I just can't thank Katie enough for creating the coolest shoes I have or will ever own!

Welcome to my shop! I have always loved creating things. Whether it's art, decor, clothing/accessories, jewelry, home items, or even all-natural body products, I love the feeling accomplishment. I'm also planning on expanding my horizon of creativity, but we'll see when that happens.
The past year or so, I have been dreaming of making my own, one of a kind creations and selling them. I had a job that I hated. Which was where the idea was born... Why wouldn't I want to make a living doing something I LOVE doing, rather than something I hate doing, and not having enough time to do what I really love? Well, I kept doing what I hated, because I was too scared to take the leap and try it out. It took a while, but through some unforeseen circumstances which seemed very scary at the time, the opportunity to jump at what I had been dreaming of fell into my lap in April of this year. Hence the name... Spring Satori. (Satori, in short, is a word describing a sense of enlightenment)
I am located in the East-central Indiana area. I love raw, earthy, and natural design and style. I love to purchase handmade items, and even antiques as I feel that things manufactured from modern machines are missing the care, love, and dedication that is very evident in hand-crafted items, or the mystery of what antique pieces have been through over the years.
I hope you enjoy! Message me if you have any questions!

  • Money Order
Payment
I will accept (preferably) Paypal, or (not-so-preferably, but still ok) money orders. Already made items will be shipped out within 24-48 hours upon receipt of payment (I allow 48 hours, although I will be trying to get them out immediately, as to not make my customers wait too long!). Custom requests or made-to-order items will vary in shipping times, based on the detail. **PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE REQUESTED A CUSTOM ORDER, I WILL NOT START PRODUCTION ON IT UNTIL YOUR PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED. For no reason will I ever begin production on a custom or made-to-order item before I have received payment in full for the order. This is due to high overhead costs associated with each order, to avoid monetary loss for my shop due to customers changing their minds about purchasing their requested listing. I apologize for any inconvenience or delay in receiving your item this may cause. If you are in a hurry to receive your order, the only way to ensure swift turn around time is to pay for your item in a timely fashion after it is posted.

Regarding money orders: Upon purchase of item intended to be paid for with money order, please include a message to me letting me know what day you will be sending the money order. If payment is not received within 7 business days of purchase and I am not notified of any reason for delay, I will cancel the order and re-list the item. If there is a reason for delay, I'll be happy to extend that period to 14 days, only after I am notified of the delay.

If you have any other questions AT ALL about payment, please send me a message prior to attempting to purchase items. I would like to help you out the best I can!
Shipping
I am a world-wide seller! Shipping costs will vary from country to country. If you do not see your country on the listing, please message me and I will be more than happy to get a shipping estimate for you.
I will be using the US postal service for all shipped packages. As was stated before, I (officially) will be sending paid items out within 24-48 hours upon receiving payment, but this is a guideline, as I will be trying to get things shipped out immediately. This guideline does not stand for painted shoes, as I do all of my painting by request, and the production on those takes a few weeks. On shoes, estimated time for shipping is 4-6 weeks from date of order. Depending on where you live, actual in-transit times will vary from a couple of days to around two weeks (for overseas orders, due to the possibility of being held at customs).

RUSH SHIPPING:
I am happy to prepare a rush order for you, following these guidelines:
- All rush orders will be purchased under a reserved listing for you, and will have a rush fee of 30% added to your total order cost. This fee is to cover the cost of rush production and express shipping.
- All rush orders must first be requested and approved by me before you purchase your item, to make certain I am able to have your item ready by your expected date. If you purchase your item before letting me know it needs to be rushed, I will have to either set up another listing for the remainder of the rush fee, or you will receive your item within the normal 4-6 week time frame. ORDER REFUNDS ARE NOT AN OPTION REGARDING THIS ISSUE, AS I HAVE MY RUSH ORDER GUIDELINES CLEARLY STATED.
-I am not monetarily responsible for packages that are incorrectly delivered by the postal service. I will be happy to check into any shipping error whether it was my own or that of the post office, but if the error was not my own, I am not responsible for a guaranteed resolution. Also, according to etsy policy, orders under $250 do not require signature for delivery. I am not responsible for packages that are left on the doorstep for this reason.
- On custom-painted shoes or other custom items, please keep in mind that painting is a process, and while I can place urgency on some orders, I cannot have a pair of shoes finished within an unreasonable time frame. Non-rush shoe orders will take anywhere from 4-6 weeks for production, and rush orders can be completed in no less than three (3) weeks. When your order is placed in rush status, I am still working on my other customer's orders also so they won't have to wait longer. Please keep this in mind while ordering and plan accordingly.
Refunds and Exchanges
THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS ON CUSTOM PAINTED SHOES. Production generally starts immediately after your order has processed. Once I begin production on the shoes, I am not able to return them and get my money back, so once the order has processed, I cannot refund your money for any reason. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR EXACT SIZE READY AND INCLUDED IN THE "NOTE TO SELLER" BOX, AND KEEP IN MIND THAT IF YOU ARE REQUESTING CUSTOM WORK, THE WORK DONE WILL BE IN MY ARTISTIC STYLE- I CANNOT GUARANTEE PERFECT REPRODUCTION OF SOMEONE ELSE'S ARTISTIC STYLE. I WILL SEND PHOTOS TO YOU PRIOR TO SHIPPING TO MAKE CERTAIN THEY ARE WHAT YOU ARE HOPING FOR. Please, thoroughly look through my listings for examples of my work, and keep in mind that if requesting custom work, you are giving me full artistic freedom to carry out your request in my artistic style, within the perimeters of my abilities. If for some reason you approve your shoes from the pictures you receive, but you are not satisfied with them upon receiving them, please let me know within ONE WEEK of receiving them, and I will be happy to repaint that pair with you paying only the cost of shipping. IF I DO NOT HEAR FROM YOU WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE DATE STATED ON MY DELIVERY CONFIRMATION FROM USPS, THIS OFFER NO LONGER STANDS. I get shipping confirmation on every order, so please do not delay if you are not satisfied.


Refunds/exchanges on other items available for seven (7) days after you receive the item.
If damage is caused due to neglect, misuse, or otherwise "your fault", I will not refund or exchange the item. If the item is lost, I will be happy to SELL you another one, but I cannot cover the cost for you.
Again. ANY other questions or concerns, please message me ASAP.
Additional policies and FAQs
***IF YOU SEND ME A PICTURE OF SOMEONE ELSE'S PAINTED SHOES, I WILL NOT REPRODUCE THEM. EVERY DESIGN I DO MUST BE ORIGINAL-- SINCE THEY ARE HAND PAINTED, I CANNOT PERFECTLY REPRODUCE SOMEONE ELSE'S WORK. I AM SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

If you wish to purchase a few or several of one item, let me know, I'll tell you if I have the materials for the amount you wish to purchase. If I am at all capable of replicating one of my creations for you, I will be more than happy to do so! If you do wish to purchase more than one of the same (or similar) item, I will be happy to make a specific posting of that lot reserved for you alone.
As I've stated a few times before... FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME ABOUT ANYTHING! I would love to make you happy, and will do my best to accomplish that!
