Hello all, here's some info I needed to get out there because it becomes tiresome to repeat myself to every individual.
so I hope this helps.
just some friendly fyi's:
1- Please don't demand commissions of me, I am not a vending machine. I am a human being. Respect goes a LONG way with me.
If I don't have an opening, then I don't have an opening. I'm sorry.
Also if the item you're asking for is too complex for my skill level then I have to decline.
And last but not least, I will NOT do FREE Commissions.
2- Please refrain from pestering me for secrets (aka: don't ask me for tutorials for my crafts. If I was offering tutorials for my works I'd have already posted them on my DA). Just saying.
3- Please don't ask me to accept payments outside of paypal on DA. it's just not safe for either party. But I do accept all credit cards, paypal, gift cards, and E-Checks on etsy. I don't accept cash and checks.
(IF you're paying with an ECheck I will not start your order until it clears.)
4- Please, please, please don't harass me for discontinued items. if they're not currently offered in my etsy shop then they are NFS (not for sale).
5- PLEASE don't buy from me just to turn around and re-sell my stuff on ebay for double the price. I'm not your supplier for your ebay sales. It especially hurts when you claim my art as your own. I have mentioned this in my etsy shop policies. It is not allowed.
6- Requests are not orders until money has exchanged hands. Requests are always welcome, I always like new ideas. but please don't come and start threatening me for the stuff you requested months ago. If I don't agree to making it for whatever reason, then the subject is closed. Sorry.
7- My processing time is 1-2 weeks. 3 weeks if ordering one of my original works (aka: my Weedlings, Muddlings, Peediweeps, etc) due to they are customized if not ordered from my current stock. Processing times can be less than 1 week depending on workload. Please feel free to make inquiries.
8- If you're going to order from me via my etsy shop PLEASE read my shop policies and ask any questions prior to ordering.
(Please understand that my policies ended up being made the way it is due to past experiences good and bad. they are made to create less misunderstandings and leaves no room for confusion and NO SCAMS. sadly that has happened to me A LOT...).
9- I stopped shipping internationally due to scammers... even though my policies state that ANY customs fees are not my responsibility... they STILL come and threaten me... I lost a lot of money due to that. It's happened one too many times so I stopped shipping over-seas. I'm sorry; but all is not lost for I have made a policy (which you can view in my shop policies on etsy) that if you're an international buyer you can have the order shipped to someone in the US and they can ship it to you.
10- Yes, my original works (Weedlings, Muddlings, Peediweeps) are copyrighted. Please help keep these works original by not copying them or reselling them. If you see someone else copying my work or using my photos of my works without my permission please notify me via DA Note. I really appreciate it. Proper legal action will then be taken per the situation calls for. Thank you.
Have a great December.
