About

The Etsy Mama

I opened my shop in 2007 after I left my teaching career to stay home and raise my child. I created marble magnets during her nap time and, not long after, "Etsy Transactions" emails were a daily part of my inbox.

I closed my shop for several years to navigate the new waters of motherhood without distraction. After that time of refreshment and renewed focus, the Etsy bug bit me again and I reopened my shop in 2013 with a brand new product line - custom wall art.

Two children... three children... and now four children later... I am still running my Etsy shop between diaper changes, snack time, and homeschooling. I love that Etsy affords me the opportunity to have a creative outlet and run a business without ever leaving home.

Each month, I am delighted to donate a percentage of my proceeds to various charities that are near and dear to my heart.

I have the most amazing customers and I thank each and every one of you for your support and encouragement.

XOXO,
The Purple Pear

    When I'm not designing prints, you'll find me homeschooling my 4 kids or behind my camera and macro lens. I love Jesus, my amazing family, my furball Golden Retriever (most of the time), our funny backyard chickens, and chocolate and peanut butter.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I happily accept Paypal and credit card payments through Etsy or Paypal.
Shipping
Your prints will be mailed to you via USPS for prints under 11x14 and Fed Ex for larger prints. Tracking information is available for everything I ship. Need it in a hurry? Overnight shipping is available for an additional $13.

International Customers: Shipping prints internationally is very expensive. I am happy to provide you with a digital file that you can print locally instead.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refunds and cancellations can take place before I've spent design time creating your custom piece, so please contact me as soon as possible if you need to cancel. Do to the custom nature of most of my work, I cannot accept returns on custom orders, which is why I communicate with my customers extensively through convos and by sending proofs for your approval to make sure you are happy with your purchase before it is shipped. I cannot refund or exchange products if the customer provides me with incorrect information, so please double check all information and look carefully at each proof. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me immediately to see how we can work out a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me if you'd like more information about custom orders!

Frequently asked questions

Will I receive a proof? How long will that take?

Yes! After your order goes through, you should receive your proof within 3 business days or less. I will attach a digital proof to an Etsy message so you can approve it or make changes before printing. During my busy season, I will post a shop announcement if my turnaround time is significantly longer.

What are your production times?

My professional printing lab has regular business hours from Monday to Friday. The turnaround times for production are:

Prints: 1 Day
Photo Mounting Boards: 1 Day
Canvases: 2 Days
3D Standout Mounts: 2-4 Days
Framed Prints: 3 Days

What if I need my order in a hurry!?

Regular shipping takes 5-7 business days, but I offer overnight shipping if you're in a hurry. Rush charges are also available to speed up production times at the lab. Another great option is to purchase a digital file to print locally. There are many options available! Please send me a message so we can decide on the best way to get your order to you in time.
