Sweetpea's blooming...

My little shop started on the suggestion of a friend at work.
"Have you ever thought of going on Etsy?"
I didn't even know what Etsy was a year ago!
So this shop is a culmination of years of practice, and my
poor co-workers have been the beneficiaries (and the victims!)
of all my practice. I started making birthday cakes for them,
but decided I wanted to make the cakes look "pretty", or have
a theme, or whatnot. What you see on the pages here is
the result of all those calories!
I thank God for all I do, for all I have, and for whatever gifts
I use. I thank Him most for my wonderful husband and
amazing son.
My goal is to make something wonderful for a bride, a little
girls' birthday, or anyone wanting to add something really
fun and special to a celebration. And every time I make a rose,
(or try to) I am reminded at how amazing God is, as no one
does it like the Original!
Thank you so much for looking around and sharing in my
humble little shop!

Thank you for choosing Sweetpea Sugar Art! I am so honored to be working
amongst such talented people and consider it a privilege to create something
wonderful for you and your special event. I am very picky about what I allow
someone to receive, so I have done my best to accurately represent my work
in the photos listed. You will never receive anything I'm not happy with!
(Well, once or twice I've had to ship an item that I may not have been especially
fond of, because I tend to be overly critical of my own work...)
I encourage an ongoing communication between myself and a buyer, as most of
these items are of such a personal nature, and I will always communicate with you
in word and in pictures as the process goes along, so that you can tell me if you
like something or not, so I can modify things if necessary, and will send you a final
picture before I ship, so you will see exactly what you are getting. So forget about
my opinion of my own work-all that matters is yours!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
I accept Paypal and direct check out. Since all of the items listed are
custom made specifically for you, they can not be returned and must be paid
for prior to the commencement of their creation. As soon as your payment is
received, I will begin your order and finish it as soon as I can. If you have special
circumstances, let me know, and I will do everything I can to accommodate you.
I ship all items by priority mail, and will insure everything I sell. If you have a different
method by which you'd like to receive your purchase, just convo me-we can arrange
I take a beating on shipping, and will often "eat" the cost if it exceeds what I've
estimated in the listings. The reason I do this is that often, in order to insure that your
flowers or critters arrive to you safely, I double box. I will fill the box your item comes
in with lots of very soft fluff, and then fill the second outer box with the same fluff, to
minimize any jostling the package may take while in the care of our postal workers.
(Who, by the way, have actually done a remarkable job.) Many times, the increased
size will translate into higher shipping, that you do not end up paying, as if I underestimate the cost, that is my fault, and I won't hold you responsible for that!

If your shipping ends up being significantly less, I will refund you the difference.
Refunds and Exchanges
Unfortunately, because every item is custom made, they are not returnable. If
something happens and your event is canceled and for some reason you can't
make use of the item you purchased, it may be possible to get a refund, if your
item either isn't started, finished, or hasn't left my hands yet. It would have to be on a case by case basis, and we can discuss the circumstances.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will do whatever I can to make someone a satisfied customer, and to make sure
they feel great about what they've purchased and that they feel the value from their

I love the challenge of a custom order!


An important notice about breakage...

The sugar items are just that-sugar, not wrought iron!

Some of them are very delicate, and breakage during shipping may and does occur. I bundle these items up very, very carefully, since I have so much time and hard work invested in each piece. If a piece breaks, it breaks my heart, and you, as the buyer, need to know that.

I am emotionally invested in each and every creation!

It is not just a disappointment on your end if something breaks in shipping. It is a horrible feeling for me, as "the artist", to not only invest time and effort in something I hope is wonderful for your event, but also, since I am excited FOR you to receive something great that will make you happy, it is a huge disappointment for me to know
that my effort is wasted, and worse still that I may have an unhappy person on the other end of my work! So if something happens during shipping, don't feel alone-I will be disappointed too!

I can be contacted to discuss anything regarding concerns or questions. Please
convo me as soon as you receive your item if something happens. Know that I will do
and have done everything possible to insure that your receive your flowers etc in
the best shape possible and that I hopefully exceed expectations.

Thank you for your understanding.
