I absolutely love it. I can not wait to have my son's newborn pictures taken in it. The crocheted stitching is just perfect. Thank you so much for your hard work. I am so happy we found it I have never seen anything like it.

My Creative Space
I grew up in a very creative family. My grandmother (who I never had the pleasure of meeting, was a French seamstress) and my mom loved to sew as I was growing up and I would also watch her knit and crochet. I always tried to get her fabric scraps to make things for my dolls, clothes, furniture, bedding for my dolls. And, if the piece of fabric was large enough, something for me! I remember getting my first "real" sewing machine, it was the toy kind, that you either plug in or use batteries, that actually sewed! I think I was in heaven! In my pre-teens and teens, I began creating and designing my own clothing and styles outside of using patterns.
My dad is an artist, mostly with oil paints, and has also played guitar most of his life. Both my brothers play guitar and various instruments, and my sister sings and plays bass guitar.
As an adult, I began drawing real life portraits, doing more sewing, knitting, crochet, paper crafts, playing guitar, writing songs and poetry, painting and making jewelry. Hence, my other Etsy shop etsy.com/shop/InnerBalanceJewelry.
I also love to help others reach for their highest potential and heal emotionally, physically and spiritually! And, love studying self healing, energy healing, quantum healing and natural healing and instant healing. I have had some fun, unbelievable and amazing experiences with energy healing. And, many years ago, I chose to become an energy and distance healing practitioner to help others as well. There is too much suffering in this world, and I don't feel that there is a need for suffering.
I have always wanted to "work" from home, doing what I love. And, now, I do! I combine my love of helping others with my love of creating and I have multiple online shops where I sell my creative art and I also offer distance healing sessions.
I truly love what I do and I provide quality work and services that uplift people all around the globe while I get to create a a joyous financial support for my family and my life. How does it get any better than that?!
I love receiving feedback from the people I create for! Creating is my joy, however, when you know that someone loves to receive it as much as you enjoy coming up with the design and bringing it to life, it, is a blessing, like the icing on the cake! It is said that you have to do what you love for you...I do...however, I also do it for the joy of seeing how happy the receiver is! It is amazing to receive a compliment such as "It is more than I could ever imagine! It's like you were inside my brain!" I LOVE THAT! THAT is worth it in my book!
Thank you for stopping by and Have a beautiful day!

Please check listings for individual shipping cost & times. I mostly use USPS First Class with tracking or Priority USPS which also includes tracking. I have been advised by USPS that First Class normally takes about 4-7 business days to receive in most cases, and Priority is 2-3 business days. I add tracking onto the First Class and Priority automatically comes with tracking.
In order to keep shipping costs minimum, your new item may be shipped in a padded envelope or new or gently used box.
Refunds and Exchanges
Hand drawn portraits are non refundable or exchangeable. I require a 50% non refundable deposit on all hand drawn portraits. I make every attempt to complete authentic, pleasing portraits. I send emails at set intervals to the purchaser to show advancement of work. Once artwork is near complete, I send an emailed photo of the drawing to purchaser, advising work is near complete with attached photo with watermark, and request a final payment. Once email is receieved back from purchaser and final payment is received for product and shipping, the sale is final and artwork will be mailed to address the purchaser requests. Final payment is due within 2 business days of completion of artwork. Additional forms of shipping available for artwork, as these items are of higher value.
Additional policies and FAQs
ARTWORK (drawings, etc): require a very clear, large photo for me to work from, with clean detail. The face must be at least approximately 2 inches square and be VERY good clear detail. This will be at my discretion. I will require either an original mailed to me or an emailed good quality, photo, that can be enlarged if needed without distortion (good pixel size here). Multiple photos are best, so I have a choice to work from. I can combine multiple photos together to make one portrait if you like. Please make sure you hold all copyrights to photos. I am not responsible for any copyright issues, by you sending me a picture, you are assuring me you have copyrights to the photo... I will email purchaser rough sketch just to show placement of subject in photos before beginning work. All emails sent of artwork will have watermark and any copies of my artwork can be made with my permission only. If you would like printed copies of artwork to share, please convo/email me, and I can get an estimate for you before making this purchase. Thank you.
