  1. Hi Kaitlen,
    I hope you are well. You have a wonderful website!

    I have a question. I’ve seen your Christmas crafts, they are too cute.

    I live in South Africa and have had to close my business due to Covid. I’m looking at ways to try and earn and income. I’m busy putting together some things to sell over the festive season. I see all your images are free download but for home use only. I was wondering if I paid for them if you would agree to allowing me to print and sell them here in South Africa?

    Kind regards,
    Shelley
