About yforyou

Sales 1,054
On Etsy since 2012

a stockpile of creations needed a venue - and then i found etsy!

a friend had told me about etsy - it took me over 6 months to actually take a look. and just one look - i was hooked - from pure purchaser to finally getting up the gumption to open my own shop - it just seemed so daunting - but, i was wrong ; )

slowly, one step at a time, i began putting together all the necessary elements to open shop - which finally began january of 2012....

creating comes from desire, necessity, and inspiration. many and most items that i have created come from a desire to have something unique and something that is "me" - such as my wrap bracelets. there are hundreds on the market but i wanted one that wasn't out there so i made one. i love pillows but also wanted something different than what can be found in local stores. everything in my shop is something that i love and want to have.
color is usually what gets me inspired and started on a project. just looking at my collection of beads or fabric will draw my eye and imagination and helps generate an idea. i love nature and the world of color and these alone fill me with continuous ideas for new projects.

It is most important to me that you be absolutely delighted with your purchase. If you are not, please notify me within 7 days of receipt of package and we will arrange for either a refund or exchange - i do not reimburse shipping costs.

Sitka, AK buyers only - 6% sales tax will be applied.
Here in Alaska it is either the United States Postal Service - USPS, or mule train ; ). living on an island does not allow for overnight or 2 day delivery. I certainly will ship first class and priority mail for most smaller items which generally take about 10 days travel time. **please note - due to the exorbitant shipping cost for most larger pillows, I will ship parcel post unless you agree to pay the additional cost for air fare. **outside of U.S., please arrange for a shipping quote from me prior to purchasing and pillows**. any items valued at or about one hundred dollars will ship with insurance coverage and confirmation for tracking purposes. I will generally ship your order within 2 to 3 days of purchase date. please be aware that if you pay with a check or money order I will not ship your purchase until your payment has cleared.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will be happy to consider custom orders - just convo me with your request and I will let you know if I can make it for you.
Also, many of my pillows are of the same color palate meaning that they are mix and match. Most item's descriptions include which pillows will match with others but please feel free to convo me if you would like any help with matching and pairing.
