If you place an order after December 12th, I will still ship it ASAP, but it might not arrive before the 25th!

Shipping will be billed at a flat rate of $6 per address for large items and orders with multiple items (so it'll be 6 dollars, even if you buy more than one thing!).  Small items may have a lower shipping fee.  While I wish I could offer free shipping at this time, margins are always thin for artists.  Thanks for your understanding and support!

Free gift wrapping is available; please indicate items to be wrapped during checkout, and any messages you'd like written out!  Don't forget you can arrange for local pick-up or drop off (see below).

USPS estimates that items shipped by December 16th will arrive to their destination by December 24th, so be sure to place your order by December 12th!


Most packages will be shipped USPS within 1 week of ordering. Rush shipping by request.  Custom orders may have longer turn around times. For faster arrival times, local drop delivery available in Lincoln, Nebraska using checkout code LOCAL.  **Local pick-up will be unavailable between the dates of October 20 - November 30th, but will resume thereafter.  If you'd like to place an order during those times, I'll be happy to deliver the first week of December!**

You may notice unexpected packing materials in your kit or shipping. To minimize environmental impact and keep the cost down, I use exclusively upcycled packaging material -- yay, Earth!


Please contact me with any concerns.  No physical returns except in extraordinary cases, and no returns on digital content.

I would love to host a natural dye workshop at your venue, farm, nature center, baby shower, party... the list goes on!  Workshops for small groups, schools, and more.  Educational and fun, content suited for all age groups (including families).
