Policies & Notifications


I accept payment via PayPal. Note: you do not need to have a PayPal account to use PayPal to process your order. If you have any questions about this, please contact me. 


All shipping is first class USPS, and includes handling and packaging. Once payment is received, I will package and ship your order within 3 - 10 business days. Normally the processing time is 3 - 5 days, but during high times of peak sales, it may take the full 10 days. If you would like expedited shipping, or have any other special requests, please contact me before purchasing your item. I will be happy to accommodate if at all possible, including shipment by priority or express mail if desired. Any difference in postal fees will be added to your order.

For international shipping, please be aware that for some countries it may take 4 weeks or longer for your package to arrive. In some rare cases, it may take 6 - 8 weeks - I ask that you please wait 8 weeks before we take the next step of a reimbursement. If an international package is lost or stolen all reimbursement will be made with store credit only. Should a 2nd shipment (a 2nd attempt) be lost/stolen I will refund you your purchase. Also please be informed regarding your country's customs regulations, duty fees and taxes; I am not responsible for these details.

Refunds and Exchanges

Due to the unique one-of-a-kind nature of my work, I cannot accept returns or issue refunds. All sales are final. However, exchanges are possible; plesae contact me for information. Or if if there is a problem with your order after you receive it, contact me immediately and we will work to resolve it.
