Shipping Policy:

I am not Amazon! I ship once or twice a week. This means that your package will be processed between 1 and 7 days after I receive your order. Please note that I am an intentionally small business. It's just me over here creating artwork, writing, teaching, consulting, marketing, creating my website and being my own packaging and shipping 'department'. (Not to mention personal shuttle service to active teenagers which perhaps I should have listed first...).

Please note that book orders are shipped Media Mail within the US. International book orders must be placed through my Etsy Shop for accurate shipping charges.

I have now hired part-time help to head downstairs to my 'shipping department' and fulfill all my orders for the week at one time. I hope this works for you. However, if you need your item right away, then send me an email and let me know - please note that because this will mean bringing in part-time help specifically for your item, I will need to charge a $20 expedition handling fee.

My Privacy POLICy:

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services...
