About CedarBeeHandmade

Sales 309
On Etsy since 2013

Inspired by nature, warmth & fun

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to create. From a young age, writing, drawing and music were important outlets and key elements of who I am.

In 2013, I opened this shop with the intention of selling my art. From there, I kind of … left it! I had started to sew and that was my latest outlet, but I wasn't yet confident enough to sell anything I made. Instead, I wrote up some tutorials on my blog.

When I had our son the following year, he became my inspiration. Not only because I had spent a good part of my third trimester sewing cloth diapers for him and whipping up my own nursing bras, and not just because he was such a little drooler that I needed to sew him 100 cute bibs -- though that was certainly part of it. He was my inspiration because he was my most perfect creation of all time & as most parents will attest of their own children, he has become the reason why I do everything that I do.

In 2015, my old, abandoned art shop became Cedar Bee Handmade – a new shop for comfy, fun and unique handmade gifts for family and home. As my tagline suggests, I’m inspired by nature, warmth and fun – that feeling of being ‘home’ – and I strive to give my customers that warm and fuzzy feeling with every item I make.

Shopping handmade means that you can actually know the person who creates the practical and the fun things that you use every day. I think that is a beautiful thing.

Returns and exchange details
If you find something wrong with your item, please message me first. I'll always do my best to try and make it right for you. Please note that Clearance section items and custom request orders are always final sale due to the unlikelihood of resale to other customers.

Once you've contacted me, I will happily accept returns on all other items shipped back to me within 14 days of delivery.

- Item must be unused or unworn if wearable, in the same condition in which it was sold for a refund to be processed.
- Shipping is non-refundable.
- Buyer pays return shipping & handling. Customs/duties paid by seller for a return will be deducted from refund.
- A re-stocking fee may be deducted from your refund to cover any costs incurred. (E.g., "Free shipping" items will incur a re-stocking fee of up to 30% to cover costs for my shipping out the item. I am happy to give you the exact fee before you decide to return your item upon request.)
- Custom request orders are final sale.

Upon receipt of the item in acceptable condition, I will process your refund within 1 business day.
Payment
Upon receiving payment, your ready-to-ship order will be shipped within 1-3 business days. Made-to-order item processing times are given in listings and at checkout.
Please note that custom orders are required to be paid in full before production begins. Processing (making) and shipping timelines for custom orders will be communicated in the custom listing and/or in our Etsy Conversations. Thanks!
Delivery
Your order is made with love and shipped with special care. I ship each handmade item in protective packaging so it arrives to you just as it left me.

NIAGARA LOCALS:
Rather pick up your order than wait for the mail? I know the feeling! :) Please send me a Convo PRIOR TO PURCHASE & I will send you a code to void shipping charges. We can arrange for a time for you to pick up.

*************************************************

To save you money, I ship small/lightweight orders as Lettermail (no tracking) within Canada by default. You can upgrade shipping to tracked parcel using the dropdown Shipping menu at checkout.

Lettermail is quite reliable and tends to arrive to most places within Canada quickly. CP's Delivery Standard for Lettermail is normally 2-4 business days after they are shipped, though it occasionally takes longer (during the holidays, for example).

Canada + USA Buyers:
Any orders that surpass CP Lettermail weight/dimensions/criteria restrictions will be shipped as a parcel. Canada Post's delivery standard to the USA is generally 5-8 business days after shipment -- this applies to large city centres; delivery may take longer for more remote areas and/or around major holidays.

*************************************************

SHIPPING UPGRADES:

Need it faster? If the option is unavailable in the dropdown Shipping menu, please send me a Convo with your desired arrival date BEFORE purchasing the item so that I can add the option for you.

Does your upgraded shipping price seem high? Within Canada, different locations can vary in pricing so I have to set the price higher. I will ALWAYS refund any difference in shipping back to you if it is over $1 CAD.

FREE SHIPPING PROMOS do not include shipping upgrades and are sent with standard shipping (lettermail or the lowest priced shipping, depending on item weight).

*************************************************

Seller is not responsible for delayed delivery due to Canada Post/your post, customs, or import duties/taxes/VAT, etc.

*************************************************

Any questions, send me a conversation! I'm normally quite prompt and am always ready to help! :)

Thank you for your interest in my handmade shop. I hope you love your purchase!

Frequently asked questions
Will this scarf fit my child who is [insert age here]?

My listings' descriptions each contain approximate ages and lengths. The most accurate way to ensure an item will fit is to use a flexible measuring tape sized to the measurement given in the listing. You can also use a piece of string measured against a ruler for accuracy.

Gently hold the measuring tape or string at the listed length around your child's neck, ensuring there is enough space left for your child to be comfortable while wearing the scarf. A petite 4 year old may in fact fit a baby/toddler scarf, so definitely give measuring a try if you like the item and you're unsure!

All measurements are approximate, but I try to ensure they're within an inch of the length given.

Do you make scarves for babies younger than 6M?

Currently I make most of my scarves and bibs so that they begin to fit little ones around 6M+. A couple of easy tips, though, for parents of smaller babies:

Lightly twist my baby/toddler infinity scarves a couple of times and fluff it up before fastening to fit closer on smaller babies. Your tiny baby now has a scarf that grows with them into toddlerhood!

I've begun making my bibs adjustable with an extra set of snaps. These bibs can be made smaller by two sizes, for a total of three different sizes! See all listing measurements.

Do you offer local pickup?

Yes!

If you're in the Niagara area and would prefer pickup over shipping, contact me before your purchase for a free Local Pickup coupon code.

Didn't see this until after checkout? That's okay too! Contact me and I'll refund your shipping and we'll set up a time to pick up your goodies!
