During the colder winter months: LATE November through early March each year the studio is heated with a wood stove and kerosene heaters. During these months it is possible to have items arrive with a slight 'campfire' like smell. We Febreze items before packaging during these times to try to prevent it. Materials and items are never in contact with the wood or stove themselves.
We also test candles and incense in the same studio. We cannot guarantee your items will arrive odor free 100% of the time we try our best though. We DO Febreze items before sending them. You can always wash items if you dislike the smell.
Felica and Jewel own a dog. Our dog Loli has free roam of our studio space and often accompanies us in the studio. She does not come into contact with material used for orders. She does come in contact with pre-made items for photos sometimes. She is quite the photo bomb! Please keep this in mind when ordering.
