Store Announcements

April 2022

Etsy pricing

As many of you have probably heard from other Etsy sellers, Etsy has recently announced that they will increase their fees as of April 11, 2022. This has forced me to raise my shipping prices to keep up with the ongoing shipping and packaging increases across the board.

Since I really really don't want to raise the prices too high, I'll also be opening a store on on Square and Ko-fi. (More info in the collapsible group below.)

Personal Shop and Ko-fi

Personal Shop

My ETA on my personal shop soft opening is roughly end of April 2022, as there's a lot of stock that I'll be moving around. All of my stock, plus some items not normally listed on my Etsy, will be available through this shop!

Stock will be split between these storefronts. So if something is listed as "sold out" on one store but not the other, that means I still have stock and that you can order it through your preferred platform by contacting me via email at

Items bought through this store will be priced lower than my Etsy — closer to prices I typically have at in-person events — and have a couple of Ko-fi exclusive items, like stickers, and discounts through my sticker club.

Wait, a sticker club?

Yep, you read that right! I'll be opening up a sticker club on Ko-fi this year too! The ETA on this will be sometime in June.

If you aren't familiar with sticker clubs, they're monthly subscriptions that allow you to get stickers in your mail every month. Stickers for my sticker club will be sent out at the beginning of each month by letter mail.

In addition to receiving a cool new sticker every month, you'll have access to discounts that are automatically applied to my Ko-fi store to sticker related items like sticker books. I'll also be trying to post to Ko-fi more frequently with some behind the scenes how I make a sticker and WIPs.

What about VAT and all that?

Well, I'm still a little unsure of how VAT works (I still hear people are being double-charged), so I'll most likely still only be taking orders for EU and UK customers through Etsy. However, if you are located in one of those countries and would like to order something from my Ko-fi, please reach out to me via the Request Custom Order button via my Etsy.

In your message, please state:

  • The item(s) you'd like from my store(s);

  • Which country you're located in; and

  • Any additional notes you may have!

I will get back to you with the order total (in CAD), including shipping, once I confirm all of the order details with you. Once the order is OK'd, I'll create a custom listing for you, purchasable through my Etsy. Your item(s) will be processed and shipped once they have been paid for.

Shipping to Germany

As of June 2022, I will no longer be shipping items to Germany through any of my storefronts due to the recent requirements regarding Germany’s VerpackG (Packaging Act). Orders made before June will be sent out but orders made during or after June will be refunded.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause any Germany-based customers!

For more information about the VerpackG and how this affects Etsy sellers, please see this article here.

Annnnd... hopefully that wasn't too long of a read 😅

I know it was definitely a lot, so if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me at or through my contact page. I'll try and get back to you as soon as possible!

I'd like to end this announcement with a GIANT thank you for all the patience and support you've shown me — in person, online or both! I really love making stuff and appreciate all the orders and notes that I've gotten. Y'all are great <3

Wishing you all the best,
