Our potential guests have been giving us a lot of compliments on how lovely and unique they are.

About

VO Handmade: A Timeline

2018
In 2018 VO Handmade celebrates the 9th year anniversary of doing business on Etsy, with over 7,000 sales and many happy customers!

2011-2017
Hello Australia, England, Denmark, Canada, Mexico, and many countries around the world! VO has experienced overwhelming international success, and has consciously decided to stay 'small.' I now take a limited number of orders to allow the time and attention that every project deserves.

2010
Moved to Seattle and decided to turn the small business into a full time dream job creating unique luxury invitations. Pinch me!
In the winter of this year Gwyneth Paltrow featured VO Handmade recipe cards in her holiday newsletter GOOP.

2009
I started exploring, creating, and eventually selling on Etsy. Sooner or later I started to take my work more seriously, and VO Handmade was born. V and O are, of course, my initials.

2010-2005
I worked as an interior designer for TLCD Architecture in Northern California. They are a highly talented and extremely nice group of people. I learned an incredible amount and spread my wings as a designer.

2005
My husband Eric and I got married in the center of five redwoods. Made my own invitations...

2005-2001
Earned a Bachelors of Interior Architecture at U.of Oregon which is an amazingly creative and challenging program.
While at the University I worked as a graphic designer at the Yamada Language Center.

2000 and earlier
Somewhere in here I met my hubby, learned how to make one hell of a cherry pie, skinned knees with my three brothers, and felt like every day was art class.

    I am an artist, a mother, a lover of gardening and the ocean. I have two beautiful little boys who I have the honor of raising. I grew up in rural country of OR, became a designer, moved to CA & WA. Then found my way back to my roots in Eugene, OR.

Shop policies

My style is inspired by the collision of nature in the urban environment. Tattoo art, organic forms, and geometric rhythms meet to create something unexpected modern and fresh.

Thank you for supporting my work. All of your kind words and enthusiasm have been a great inspiration that keeps my creative spirit going!

I really want you to be happy with what you've ordered, and I will work my hardest to make sure that you are satisfied with it. You are ordering both a design service and a custom product, so I cannot offer refunds. Once you approve the final proof and have paid I will have everything printed.

Additional policies and FAQs
Regarding color matching on printed items, envelopes, and other items:
There is variation of how colors are displayed from screen to screen. If you have ordered a digital PDF file please take the time to print yourself a proof before the final proof is approved. Additional revisions to your proof after it has been approved are $10 minimum.

If I'm printing the order for you, or ordering coordinating items, I can order a proof for you, for a fee. I am not responsible for the colors not meeting your expectations if you chose not to order a hard copy proof.
