Welcome to Hawk's Nest Creations.... Something to tickle your tailfeather! Many of my items are upcycled. I find glass at estate sales which is why you'll find so many unique sizes, shapes and colors of painted glassware in my shop.

All tile/glassware has been painted with enamel paint and then baked for durability. It is recommended for hand washing. Trivets can be wiped clean in order to preserve the cork backing.

Shipping details

I offer free shipping on most items because they are light and fit in a regular envelope (earrings, bookmarks, ornaments). I ship via regular mail with delivery confirmation. Shipping usually takes less than a week. Items take several days to paint (and cure), so we're looking at a lead time of 10-14 from order to order arrival within the US. International shipping has been less than 2 weeks from the day I ship it because the lightweight items are envelopes and not packages =)

Due to the weight of the tiles and glassware/stemware, the most economical form of shipping is Priority Mail for both domestic and international orders. Due to their breakable nature, all breakables are heavily padded in bubble wrap to ensure they arrive at your house ready to go.

Refunds, returns & exchanges

I want you to be happy, so good communication is key for a pleasurable shopping experience. All items will be shipped with Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is a great investment of an additional $1.30. If you have ordered a custom piece, you will receive a color picture/PDF as a sample. Upon your approval, the balance of your order will be due.

"Mementos For Your Milestones on wood... and more!"

Welcome To Hawk's Nest Creation's Shop

I offer quality handmade mementos for all of life's milestones. Most of my items are designed to be customized. The names pictured on the listings are custom pieces I have created, or I have created them for display in my own home. Please convo me with what you would like your piece to say or reflect and I will let you know if it's doable (by changing the size of lettering in conjunction with size of image for example). I want you to be happy.

MATERIALS USED - I prefer to paint on wood, but I can paint on whatever will hold still! I primarily use Deco Art Americana paints, so any color from Deco Art's palette (or Folk Art etc equivalent), I probably have. For glass and tile, I use enamel paint which has been baked. It is top rack dishwasher safe but is recommended to be washed by hand.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Carolyn grew up in the wine region of Northern California. She began winning awards for her artistic endeavors as a middle schooler. She is a Level I One Stroke Certified Instructor, certified to teach folk art painting in the style popularized by Donna Dewberry.

When she is not painting, she is a full time homeschooling mama to a teenager adopted from China in 2012. He is a fantastic manga cartoonist and she derives great pleasure out of collaborations with Xiao Long (Little Dragon as he is affectionately called).
