COVID TIMES FAQ
❤ Shipping is currently delayed beyond our control, some packages that are being shipped internationally are taking up to 8-10 weeks to arrive at their destinations. We are a Canadian company so please bare that in mind.
❤ Canadian residents should also be aware that we are experiencing delays of up to 8 weeks inside of our country as well. We keep our shipping free because it is untracked in Canada, please bare this in mind when placing your order.
❤ We will be shipping out orders, once a week to keep ourselves socially distant.
❤ All packages are thoroughly sanitized when we receive them from our suppliers and when they leave our home to go to the post office.
❤ We appreciate your kindness, patience and understanding in these difficult times and the support you give me as an artist. Thank you so much.
❤WORRY WARTS QUESTIONS
❤ How much are your Worry Warts?
Warts vary in price from $15 Canadian (including free international shipping) for a single wart, to up to $60 Canadian including free international shipping for a set. To see prices ahead of launches or restocks please make sure you sign up for our email list as we are able to share the prices there ahead of the items being available on the site.
❤ My order for surprise Worry Warts hasn't shipped out yet, why?
All worry warts are handmade, and sometimes we get a large volume of orders in a short span of time. There can be a bit of a wait to get them made, but we promise they are coming and have been made with extra love and care for you!
❤ Will you make me a custom Worry Wart?
Sorry, at this time we are not taking on ANY sort of custom work. We're focusing on making personal and creative designs that we've thought up! Thanks so much for considering me for this though!
❤ When are the Worry Warts restocking?
The best way to know when they will be back in stock is to follow my instagram or sign up here at the bottom of home page for my email list. You'll be notified before anyone else of when they will be back in stock again. Thanks for your support and patience!
❤ I want a specific Worry Wart style from the surprise sets, or a specific eye colour from a pre-made set.
At this time we are experiencing an incredibly high volume of orders and cannot complete any specific requests. We appreciate your support and kindness and patience, the surprise warts are supposed to be a surprise and are meant to inspire creativity and spontaneity in me as an artist.
❤ Can I make my own Worry Wart?
Worry warts are an original piece of artwork, and an original concept. I own the copyright to them and this is how I make my living. It took me a long time to develop the idea behind them and they hold a lot of personal meaning for me.So people copying, reselling takes away from the work I did to make them and get them to where they are. I ask that people not copy my work, or replicate my designs and concept in any part it as it's very near and dear to my heart.
❤ Can I just have a Worry Wart?
I wish I could give everyone worry warts but sadly the supplies and shipping cost lots of money, and I need to be able to support myself. Thanks for understanding that this is my passion but it's also my job and how I make my living.
How do you pronounce your name?
❤ Care-iss Combine Carrot and Paris and there in the middle you have my name Carys. To remember just imagine a carrot attacking the eiffel tower.
