Welcome to The Crafty Walrus!

All listings here are example pieces, and each purchase is made-to-order.

The small table number canvases are a unique detail for any wedding or party. These 4x4 inch canvases are thick enough that they stand up on their own without need for any kind of support (1.5 inches deep). They are hand-painted in up to two colors of your choosing in a variety of diagonal and horizontal/vertical patterns, with the numbers painted on in any third color of your choice. The open backs are covered with a beige canvas-textured piece of cardstock.

*Want something other than numbers on these, or even nothing at all? Want thinner canvases that you can put on easels? How about a different number of colors? Contact me with your ideas!*

The larger canvases make great backdrops to weddings, photo booths, and your home! My typical set uses 3 16x20 inch canvases, but I can do any combination of sizes or number of canvases (convo me for details). Just like with the small canvases, the set is painted in two colors of your choosing with the design in a third color of your choice. The canvases can have dates, initials, symbols, whatever your heart desires!

*If you wish to purchase a set of large canvases, convo me prior to ordering. I have a questionnaire for you so I can make you the perfect set!*

My jewelry is made with Swarovski crystals and can be done in almost any color or combination of colors you'd like. Necklaces and earrings can be purchased separately or as a set. Every aspect is customizable, just convo me ahead of time or leave a note at the time of purchase. If you don't see the style you want, convo me and I'll make something special just for you!

*Would you like to order multiple copies of the same item? Maybe as a gift for your bridesmaids? Convo me with your requests and I will set up a personal listing for you!*

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Aside from damage, I am generally unable to accept returns due to the custom nature of the products. However, I am willing to review returns on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me within 48 hours of delivery so we can discuss the problem.

If your purchase arrives damaged, contact me (within 48 hours) with pictures of the damage so we can work out a solution.
I currently accept payment only through PayPal.

No work will be started until payment has been received.
Jewelry will ship within 2 weeks of purchase (possibly longer for larger orders; I will give you a shipping estimate in your personal quote). If you need your order sooner than that, there will be a $10 rush fee.

Canvases will ship within 3 weeks of purchase. If you need your order sooner, there will be a $20 rush fee.

In the event a rush job is needed, jewelry will still take a minimum of 3 days before shipment, and canvases will be a minimum of 1 week (7 days). It is not possible to complete the items faster than this. All orders are custom made to your specifications. I keep a stock of supplies, but not of finished products. All pictures you see are examples of previous work.

I would appreciate a heads up to your "need by" date in the "note to seller" box at the time of your purchase. Even if the date has plenty of cushion from the shipping window given above, it gives me a better idea of how to handle orders in the case of an emergency.

I am currently unable to ship internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are concerned about specific hues of paint colors, I will be happy to mail you a notecard with the colors you request painted on it. I offer this service for free for up to 5 color requests. If you would like to see more colors than this, I will charge $2 for each additional 5 colors to cover the cost of the paint I have to use. Convo me with your color requests.

Unfortunately, I am unable to offer color samples for the beads.
