Meet the maker Marion Walsh

Hi! Thanks for visiting my shop.

My name's Marion and I was born in the South of France, between the Med and the Pyrenees. I moved to England in 1995. I now live in Lancashire with my husband, Jonathan and my puppy Milou.

I've always loved arts and crafts and I hope you'll like what I do. I'm mainly inspired by my lovely garden and the natural world in general.

I've been drawing and painting since I was a child and I have been making cards for friends and family for about 9 years. I started pottery 4 years ago.

I would have loved to study arts and crafts, but instead I took a Business Degree! When I lost my job as a copy-editor, my husband suggested selling my artwork online; that's how Blue Butterfly Crafts was born! I'm now self-employed, giving private tuitions and freelancing as a proofreader/copy-editor. I'm also having loads of fun being creative!

Here are my shop policies, however, if I feel that good customer service requires that I bend the rules a bit, I will! If any problem arises, please contact me first of all and I'll work with you to resolve it.
Unfortunately, I currently only accept PayPal.
I’ll aim to post your items the next working day and no later than 3 working days after payment of the order. I will let you know when your order as been dispatched.
I wrap my items carefully, however I will work with you if a package arrives damaged. As far as possible I try to recycle packing items. Not only as a matter of economy, but also in an attempt to be a bit environmentally friendly.
UK ORDERS will usually be sent via Royal Mail 2nd Class. They can be sent via Royal Mail 1st Class or/and recorded delivery on request, but this will increase the P&P cost.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS will be sent via Airmail. Items should be with you within 14-21 working days. They can be posted with Airsure on request, but this will increase the P&P cost - Airsure is £5.00 in addition to the Airmail rate.
I am happy to accept returns. Items should be returned within 15 days whenever possible. I would appreciate an email first to let me know what is being returned and why. Goods will only be accepted back in perfect condition as sold. P&P is not refundable. Return P&P must be met by the buyer.
I'm afraid I can't accept returns on personalised or bespoke/custom items as I will not be able to resell them.
