    Heather is THE. BEST. We’ve been buying her work since our wedding in 2012, and she’s now made another six birthday-cake toppers for our kiddos. I don’t know how she manages to make their faces look so accurate, but she does! And she helps me come up with the sweetest designs. She also has worked with me when I fail to order in an even *remotely* timely fashion so we can still have these precious mementos in time for the celebration. My kids play with these like they’re figurines after their birthdays are over, too! I can’t recommend Heather enough! Thank you so much for adding these magical touches to so many of our celebrations. ❤️

    I just want to say a huge thank you to Heather and her amazing talents! I got three figures about 7/8 years ago, the grown ups here and our lovely little cat Mary and for Christmas this year I wanted to get Adrian something really special and thought adding our little boy Rudy and our dog Mabel would be a really special gift. We couldn’t be happier and honestly really blown away with how well she has captured Rudy and Mabel, I love them more than I thought possible and Adrian is just delighted with his gift, I’ll never be able to match another as good as this ;-) Heather really is wonderful, talented and just a lovely lady to communicate with, please don’t hesitate in commissioning her to make something special for you or a loved one, you won’t regret it<3

About Star House

I am an artist and parent. I spend my days and evenings making creations and spending time with my absolutely fabulous daughters, husband and dog.

I live and work at home, in a cozy, cozy house on a hillside that looks out at the so beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.

Some things I have been called are: an art instructor (10 years for wonderful arts/community non-profits), a preschool teacher (two years at an unbelievably fun natural preschool), an artist ( photography, sculpture and found object paintings), a creative spazz (most of my life), and a total dork. I am a Capricorn so I get younger as I get older. This is fun and uplifting.

I love nature, color, mindful nourishment, creative reuse, being helpful, simplicity, growing things, the stars, the endless universe and light. My creative space is not contained, I store supplies and work all around our house and our yard. I have always loved the Theodore Roosevelt quote "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are". I think that his words point to the true creative spirit in all of us.

I believe that each of us at our core is pure light, like a star. I see these bodies as just houses for that light, hence the name Star House. May we all glow, grow, and shine.

At Star House I try to make creations that I would be proud, happy, and excited to have folks display. These are simple, rustic, folk art creations created by hand and from the heart. I try to create designs that are uplifting and remind us of the simple shine inside of everyone and everything. May we all glow, grow, and shine.

Returns and exchanges
Star House intends to create sweet, dear life-long friends (I am speaking of both our products and customers). All sales are finale once you have approved of the design. Prior to the design finalization, refunds will be prorated and the design time subtracted. If you recieve your topper and need some aspect changed please let me know within 10 business days of receiving it and we can figure out shipping and how to make it right.

Please pay via Paypal within 24 hours of purchase. Or write me and we can discus your payment. I do require payment before I start a sketch or custom orders.
Shipping
I ONLY USE THE ADDRESS YOU GIVE ON YOUR ETSY ORDER (NOT PAYPAL)! PLEASE BE SURE IT IS THE CORRECT ADDRESS, IF NOT PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

If you place a custom order it will take two to six weeks to ship depending on the item (see item description). I ship first class usps with tracking. If you want priority or insurance, just convo me and I can create a listing for you. Since we do things in a lovingly old fashion way around here at Star House (meaning we hand address and hand post our orders, and don't print paypal labels) and since it is only us (Jeremy and I) here at Star House we do not send folks tracking numbers unless there is a problem with an order or folks request them.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CAN NOT BE TRACKED OR INSURED, THEREFORE I CAN NOT GUARANTEE IT. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS "SHIP AT YOUR OWN RISK"- meaning we can not be held responsible for late or lost packages. I can send you copies of my shipping receipt and copies of my customs declaration but this is all I can do from my end to ensure you know I have sent your package, please consider this when ordering. ADDITIONALLY there may be customs or postage charged by your country's customs or mail carrier. The buyer is responsible for these fees, please consider this before ordering.
