If only our wings were real...

In my head I am flouncing around in lace and a powdered wig, my corset is laced nicely and my crinoline is very pouffy.
I am also wearing wings.
In reality I have charcoal smuts on my face and my arms will most likely be covered in paint...still...we can but dream :o)

I could waffle on here about how much I love Art.
How I have always wanted to be an 'Artist'.
I could say that creating Art burns with an unrelenting desire, which I must pursue or perish.
A little dramatic but you get the picture :o)
I don't think anyone reading this really cares about how passionate I am about Art, so...
Instead, I'll tell you about the place we live and how it colours my world...

Many years ago a small shy girl stood at the top of the stairs holding her little sister's hand, believing they could fly they both leaped from the top stair...and flew.
Years later the feeling of being able to fly is still here, although after three children, my body may not have the grace it had all those years ago, my mind can take me into the air to fly with the wondrous beings who share the world with us.

Marriage to a Giant Troll (and then the children) led us to seek out somewhere to build a place for magic to grow, we moved to a crumbling old cottage up a mountain in Snowdonia (a natural Troll habitat,) in North Wales, little did we know that we would find ourselves surrounded, by wild things (none of which were scary) and by all manner of Magical Folk (some of which can be a little scary at times).

After a while my art began to reflect the surroundings here in the rugged windswept mountains of Wales, more and more Mystical Beings began to appear, so naturally I welcomed them in.
We soon decided they deserved their own special place, where they could do as they pleased, we planted a very small woodland for them to play, this became known as Oberon's Wood, this area is a wild place full of mystery.

We leave gifts in the trees and bushes; flowers, cookies, tiny 'fairy cakes' (they always disappear quickly).
If the Magical Beings keep still long enough, I am allowed to sketch them, sometimes they let me paint them, but only if I do it quickly and am quiet (I always am).

I draw every day; Mermaids, Fae, Magic, Myths, Children, Witches, pouffy-frocked ladies...(not many chaps unless they pester me) and then decide what they can become, some want to be painted, some say their features would be better in clay...
Sometimes they peer up at me with their little eyes and say in their sweetest voices that they are afraid to show their faces.
You can never force a drawing to become something it doesn't wish to be, I tried long ago...it just made us both sad...now I understand, so I leave them safe inside their cosy sketchbooks.
Art shouldn't be about hatred, it should be about love.
After all, isn't that what life is all about...

I have been creating 'stuff' for so long that when I started, crinolines were still in fashion. (Seriously, would I lie to you?) ;o)
I sometimes make teeny-weeny items for faeries and dolls , if you would like to visit them some might be found hiding here...(if the Fae have left any)...

I also make things for bigger people, like big floppy handbags and Bohemian items and sometimes Art Dollies which might be found hiding in here...

I also have a website, if you would like to take a peek, at the moment it is a work-in-progress :o)
oberonswood.com

I am most delighted that you came to visit us here in our little corner, you are very welcome any time you pass this way.
I will even let you hide inside my sketchbooks if you are feeling a little shy :o)

    Although I adore powdered wigs and would love to wear crinolines all day, I fear my family would think I had laced my corset up too tightly and could do with some oxygen getting to my brain ;o) Sometimes it's easier to dream the life...

Returns and exchange details
The boring but necessary bit...
If you are not happy with any purchase please contact me straight away to sort the problem out. It does no one any good to be unhappy!
If you wish to return an item please contact me within two weeks of receiving the goods, once the item is returned to me, I will refund your payment minus the postage which I paid to ship to you originally.
I cannot refund postage, sorry, I am just one person trying to get by, I am not a huge company with unlimited funds.
If any item is offered for sale with free shipping, then the amount paid by me to ship the item will be deducted from the refund given when the item is received back here to me. This may be high as I always get full insurance for expensive items and I keep all receipts for postage.

As all of my original artworks are OOAK please ensure that any item is returned in the safest way possible to avoid any problems in transit and I would advise some form of tracking for the parcel.
If an item is shipped to you with insurance and tracking, then it must be returned to me by a similar method.

I hope this sounds fair to everyone.
Payment
I combine postage on all items, so only charge one postage fee, no matter where :o)

For more expensive items and all original artwork please see below...
*If you wish to use the lay-away plan please contact me before buying and I will work out the deposit and payments and then reserve the item .
The item will remain listed but will be reserved for you :o)*

I offer a lay-away plan for more expensive items £75.00. and over.
This will require a deposit from you, which will then reserve the item (or items) in your name (as initials or nickname if you prefer). The deposit is non-refundable (sorry but it helps prevent time-wasters )
I will reserve the item for 8 weeks (unless we have worked out other arrangements) and if no further payments are made within this time the item will be relisted and no longer reserved in your name and you will forfeit your deposit :o(
The further payments will be paid through PayPal invoices which will be sent to your account for whatever amount we have worked out previously together.
I cannot say how much these payments will be here, as most of my items are priced differently and will need to be worked out individually.

I will require your email address for the PayPal invoices but for the invoice requests only, I do not and will not spam you!

If you have any problems or need any more information, please contact me...
I don't bite...much ;o)

Delivery
I combine postage on all items, so only charge one postage fee, no matter where :o)

I will try to post your item within three days of payment but I do live in the countryside so sometimes there may be a slight delay.
(Rural Post Offices have strange opening hours.)

All smaller prints are sent in card-backed envelopes, larger prints are shipped in a cardboard tube, by first class mail.
All original artwork will have to be sent recorded within the U.K. for all items over £50, or Royal Mail or Parcelforce Worldwide...which offer compensation for loss...but can be horrendously expensive for other countries!
This will obviously take longer to arrive.
Many larger items are charged by the 'volumetric weight' system which is a charge for the size of the box and not the actual weight, this means that we all get charged well over the odds for sending anything overseas :o(
With insurance added, these costs mount up but I will only use recorded delivery with insurance because my creations are one-of-a-kind and I could not replace them should anything go astray...this is obviously more expensive...but is much safer.
I do not charge for packing materials or travel costs, just what it actually costs me to ship the item.

Sometimes the postal charges (including full insurance) are so horrendously high that I realise no one would want to pay that much, so I ship free and take the costs on myself.
Please remember this would mean that any returns would incur the same postage costs for the purchaser to return the item and the 'free post' would be deducted from the total refund given by me to the buyer, once the item has arrived safely back here.

Any customs or import charges are the buyer's responsibility and not the seller's (me). These are separate charges which a country imposes on some items and are not part of the item's postal charges. (Your country will get the money not the seller :o) )

I ship in sturdy cardboard envelopes or boxes and parcel my creations securely...I also tell them they are going to a new home :o)
