My Story

I began selling products online in 2007 after I left my teaching career to stay home after having my first daughter. I created marble magnets during her nap time and, not long after, sales were rolling in daily.

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

I am still running my shop between homeschooling, snack time, and piles of laundry, but I love the opportunity to have a creative outlet and run a business without ever leaving home.

Each month, I love 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,
Catherine

    When I'm not designing prints, you'll find me homeschooling my 4 children, practicing piano, or swimming at the gym. I love Jesus, my sweet family, and our funny pets: 6 backyard chickens, 2 English budgies, an adorable bunny, and a leopard gecko.

Returns and exchange details
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 your item is lost in the mail, I will send another one free of charge. If there is proof of delivery but you cannot find your package, I can send a digital file or discounted reprint in the mail. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me immediately to see how we can work out a solution. Prints that are not personalized may be returned. If there is nothing wrong with the product, return shipping is paid by the customer and refunds are for the cost of the item.
Payment
I happily accept Paypal and credit card payments through Etsy or Paypal.
Shipping
All of our products are securely packaged and shipped within 1-3 business days after proof approval. Tracking information is available. Need it in a hurry? 2-Day and overnight shipping are available as well as rush fees which will speed up production times at the lab.

International Customers: We are happy to ship worldwide. Due to the costs of international shipping, we are also happy to provide you with a digital file that you can print locally instead.

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.
