A heartfelt journey of need and giving…

The Smiling Heart was initially created as a fundraising tool for our Ethiopian adoption. My husband and I were eager to expand our family, but our budget was not so willing. I have always created special gifts for friends and family members and thought I might be able to create for others as well. In the beginning the items listed were very limited but as time has passed, and people have requested custom orders, I have been able to expand my inventory.

I always thought that once we raised enough funds for our adoption that I would close the store because it had fulfilled its purpose. But, creating items for others brings me so much joy. I love having that creative outlet. I put the store on vacation to reflect and realized I really missed it. Creating for others has become a part of my every day.

When I make your items, I think of you as a friend, and make sure you receive something special.

The store consists of me. I think, create, cut, make, dye, sew, photograph, stuff, wrap, and mail every single item in the store…and I love it. As a mom caring for her family, driving to soccer, and helping with homework, this store is the ideal outlet for my creative cravings.

As we are approaching the end of our adoption journey I am happy to have The Smiling Heart to raise money for orphanage donations and travel expenses. I look forward to continuing my relationship with this store and growing new ideas and products.

Sending you happiness and smiles.

If there has been no communication from you/payment, or response to my attempts at communication after 5 days, I will deem this a faulty transaction. I will report this, relist/sell the item and I'll have to leave negative feedback.

Please contact me through Etsy conversations and I will reply as soon as possible.

At this time I am accepting Paypal and credit cards as a method of payment. If this is a huge problem, please email me and maybe we can work something out.
Items will be shipped within 2-5days after payment receipt, unless noted on the listing as some items are custom made- Mon-Sat. I will carefully wrap your items and ship via US Postal Service. Insurance and delivery confirmation available upon request for a small fee. Please request through 'message to seller' when making your purchase.

I do offer a discount on shipping for multiple purchases when possible. Some items are too large to ship together.

I am not responsible for lost items through the post. Thank you kindly xo

In the end I want you to be happy :)
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to LOVE your item, if for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please email me for an open communication about this. I will refund or replace your item within 7 days of receipt (but not if the US Post has lost it and the buyer elected to not purchase insurance). Item must be in new condition and full purchase price (less shipping) will be refunded or a new item will be shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that each and every item is handmade with care, but small children should always be supervised when using some of these products. Being handcrafted, each piece is unique in it's style. No two are exactly alike! I will do my best to represent each item the best I can. All items are handmade in a smoke-free home. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
