    IMPORTANT INFO!!! PLEASE READ! You are agreeing to these terms when you purchase so it's very important to read :)


    Because these globe are filled with water, during the transit time from our studio to your home, ANY freezing temperatures can cause the water to turn into ice and freeze completely, causing the globe to expand. Once the globe is brought back to a warmer temp and it unfreezes, it can cause the globe to burst and leak. The act of icing and de-icing over and over again while in transit can also cause dents and other damage to the globes. To try to make sure your globes arrive to you in the most perfect condition, we have added new shipping guidelines.

    ***If the HIGH temperatures are expected to get BELOW 32 degrees in our state in which we ship from (Indiana) we will NOT ship until the high temperatures get ABOVE 32 degrees***

    - If your snow globe order is due to ship during a time that is supposed to get below freezing, you will receive an update from me explaining and your ship by date will be extended. It may only be delayed a couple of days or it could be delayed for weeks, it just depends on what the weather is doing.
    - When purchasing, you automatically AGREE to these guidelines as I have assumed these terms have been read. No refunds or cancellations will be given for failure to read the terms.

    ***Please read ALL the description for other important ordering instructions and notes!***

    ----------- Ordering Instructions ------------

    ♥ Select how many people/pets are in the photo you want me to recreate into your minimalistic portrait and if you want it to be faceless or a simple full face (mouth, eyebrows & simple slits for eyes)

    - Count any pets as a person
    - Check the listing photo for examples of faceless and full face options

    ♥ Under personalization, add any words you would like me to add to your minimalistic portrait.

    - All wording is hand-lettered & the font will be random unless you have a specific font you want me to use for your portrait. If no font is specified to me, I will just use what I feel like would fit in well to your portrait!

    - Personalization is completely optional!

    ♥ After ordering, send me a message through Etsy with a good quality photo you want me to use for your minimalistic portrait!


    ♥ You MUST send me your reference photo so I can create your digital portrait! If no photo is received within 1-3 days & after 2 attempts to get them from you, I will have to refund & cancel your order.

    ♥ Photos that are not blurry and are clear with good quality are essential for your portrait! Photos can be selfies or regular camera view. If you're not sure if a photo will work or not, please don't hesitate to contact me before placing your order! Proofs of digital portraits before shipping are by REQUEST only.

    ♥ I need just one photo to use for the portrait, unfortunately I cannot use separate photos and put them all together into one portrait. The only exception to that is if you have an animal. Animals are easier to fit into the portrait, so if you don't have just one photo of all the people and the animal, a separate photo for the animal is okay.

    ♥ These minimalistic portraits can be either faceless (no facial features) or a simple full face (slits for eyes, mouth & eyebrows) please see listing examples

    - These portraits are NOT realism portraits. These are minimalistic portraits with minimal detail. They will not look like photo realism, as they are more of a cartoon minimalist recreation. There WILL be differences between the photo and the portrait.

    ♥ Please note that an air bubble forming at the top of the snow globe is very common & there’s very little that I can do to avoid it from happening as it that’s just one of the downfalls of shipping a water filled globe. However the small bubble that forms at top will never get in the way of the portrait!

    --------------Refunds & Exchanges---------------

    ♥ Due to the nature of custom orders, I cannot accept returns or exchanges.

    ♥ If you need to cancel an order, please contact me within 12 hours. Once the drawing process has begun, I cannot cancel your order.

    ♥ I want to make sure you are completely happy with your purchase! Please contact me for any reason if you have any questions or concerns.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    You seem to have longer processing times than other sellers on Etsy. Why?

    Etsy is filled with amazing creators and makers but we are all so different! We know quick is what everyone wants, but some of our items are just too special to be able to have a super fast turnaround time. I personally paint each and every portrait, whether it is on wood or digitally and this takes time! During peak seasons, like the holidays, it takes even longer because our unique and one of a kind items are always in high demand and I can only do so many paintings in a day! A lot of Etsy sellers have a whole team behind them helping them to create their awesome creations, I just have me! Rest assured I am always working hard on orders and always try to ship early when possible!

    Do you guarantee Christmas delivery?

    Delivery dates are never guaranteed. Once your package is in the hands of USPS, I can't control how fast it gets to you. Because of this, always be aware that shipping delays may happen and give yourself extra time to receive your package, especially during the peak seasons!

    Snow Globe Shipping Guidelines

    Our custom minimalistic style portrait snow globes have been a big hit since adding them to the shop a couple of years ago! We have learned a lot about shipping things filled with water, so we have added some extra guidelines when it comes to shipping these snow globes!

    *If temperatures are expected to get below freezing in our state in which we ship from (Indiana) we will NOT ship until the temperatures get ABOVE freezing, which is 32 degrees*

    - If your snow globe order is due to ship during a time that is supposed to get below freezing, you will receive an update from us explaining and your ship by date will be extended.

    - When purchasing, you automatically AGREE to these guidelines. No refunds or cancellations will be given.

    Why do you have guidelines for shipping snow globes?

    Since our snow globes are filled with water and then shipped to your destination, when temperatures get below freezing the globes that are in transit may end up freezing causing the globe to naturally expand. Then when the globes are brought back to above freezing temps, they will de-ice and turn back into liquid, which may cause the globe to burst from the pressure and start leaking. The act of icing and de-icing can also cause dents in the globe. To help combat this issue, we've decided to not ship these globes when temperatures in our home city is expected to drop below freezing, to try to prevent any damage to the globe!
