I made this for my mother for mothers day (and made one for my mother-in-law too.) They absolutely loved them, so here I am offering them to you!!!
This plaque is made from half inch poplar (shown with the Pecan Stain), and engraved with "FAMILY BIRTHDAYS" and the months of the year underneath. To the sides are two beautiful trees (representative of family trees, but more artistic).
Underneath the months hang names, with the day of their respective birth on a token. This makes a makeshift, albeit permanent calendar of birthdays. You can always tell when the next upcoming birthday is. Each 'chain' is finished with a decorative Celtic Tree of Life token.
This plaque includes the main "FAMILY BIRTHDAYS" board, the 12 Tree of life Tokens, and up to 10 names. When you order, please include the NAMES and NUMBER in the comments (ie. Jason 6, Racheal 15, Jessa 17)
Of course, you may need more than 10. They are available for one dollar apiece, and if you order them at the same time, I will ship them all together! Of course, the beauty of this is as your family grows, you can always add names to the 'calendar.' You can order more at any time!!!
Here is the listing for extra Name tokens:
Payment is pretty easy through Etsy, so this is straight forward. If we work together on an idea, I'd be more than happy to create a private listing for you. Custom work, once agreed upon, will require payment before physical work can begin. Most items take about 2 weeks to make, although some of the bigger and more elaborate products can take up to a month. If you are unsure, or want an estimate on production times, send me a message and I can let you know!!!
I ship almost exclusively through USPS, although occasionally use UPS for larger or more delicate items. I always include the insurance on items to make sure that if your item is damaged in transit, we are both covered (since the items offered are one of a kind, and hand made, I don't have the option to just grab another off the shelf to send.)
Also, the cost of shipping and handling of "FREE SHIPPING" items will NOT be refunded in the case of a return. This expense is included into the cost of the item, and, since USPS does not reimburse me if you purchase something, and send it back to me, I do not reimburse the expenses (included into the price of the items with "free shipping") to buyers. If you would like to know exactly what I pay for shipping, in the case of a return, please feel free to ask me
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
These items are all made to order, and details will be worked out exactly before work begins. Once work has begun, changes cannot be made (again, handmade so pretty impossible to un-cut wood). If something is damaged or lost in shipping, that is what the shipping insurance if for. Almost all items are wood, so excessive duress can and will break them. Also, wood has many variations in regards to color, grain, and appearance, so yours will NOT look exactly like examples, however, I will do my best to make them as close as possible. I advise you to treat them as precious custom heirloom quality pieces. If something does happen, I can advise on repairs, but considering the nature of these items, returns, and refunds, for broken items is not possible. If you order something, and it doesn't work, because you didn't read the description (ie. You order full size grips, but you own a compact gun) no returns will be accepted. If you have questions whether something will work, please ask. Custom designed items cannot be canceled or refunded once work has begun.
Most of my items are wood. There are, of course, some variances between different pieces of wood, even within the same board. I will always try my best to make the best looking piece for my customer. Sometimes I will search out a board with almost no grain, or a piece with a lot of grain. I will often design specifically with the grain in mind. That being said, yours will not look exactly like the pictured items. It will however, be amazing. When referencing grips, I will use many terms. Most are industry standard, however, if you are unsure, please feel free to send me a message. For instance, 1911 compact grips are 2 11/16" from the center of the top grip screw to the center of the bottom grip screw, and 1911 full size is 3 1/16" center of screw to center of screw. Ambi is short for ambidextrous safety. Magwell means your gun has a flared magazine well.
