Announcement   A gross of pretty things to embellish your life. Because embellishing is awesome. This includes handmade one of a kind items, altered items and crocheted items.

**SHIPPING INFORMATION**
I WILL UPGRADE YOUR SHIPPING TO PRIORITY IF YOUR CURRENT SHIPPING REACHES TO WITHIN $1 OF THE PRICE OF THE RIGHT SIZED PRIORITY BOX

All items are listed carefully and I believe in transparency. As a result of this I have had trademark issues and so the terms I was already using such as "lookalike" and "inspired" have now also been joined by more generic terms on the actual items we collect rather than their real names because the names belong to the manufacturers, even after we buy them. Let there be no confusion, I don't mold plastic bits from other materials... if it looks like the thing then it is the thing and you don't have to ask for clarification. Altered art is an unusual and frustrating medium... and one that I still love and so I am continuing to take the risk.

Absolutely adorable Donut!!! I ordered the pink one & it is super cute. Seller/maker (Ruth) is awesome. She even sent some stitch markers for my mum, who knits. Thank-you so much! Susan

About

A gross of crafty stuff...

My birthday is December 12 and as a kid I came up with the idea of 12 Squared and have used it ever since.

I've sold under the name at fairs and privately for almost 15 years. I've made costume jewelry for a long time, crocheted since I was a kid and only recently discovered mixed media art and all of the ways that it can incorporate with what I've been doing all along. This shop is a place where all of those different creations will land until they find new homes.

I work full time and crafting in all the ways that I create is my hobby. I like to think of this shop as my virtual little shop of curiosities with really low rent. Thank you for dropping by and nosing around... please drop by often. I love exploring new mediums and new methods and so the things in my shop will change over time, and I love that this place becomes a menagerie of creativity... a gross of things to share from my home to yours.

And because there is always a gross of inspiration, some of the ideas are more whimsical than others and I like it that way.

Welcome to Twelve Squared Creations!

All items are original OOAK* pieces or prints of original artwork or free license digital images and charms gathered from all over the place that have been hand made in a smoke-free studio. Delicious colors, delightful textures and exquisite quality you can see and feel. Offerings will vary so check back often to see what new and gorgeous things are available!

* OOAK = One of a kind

Payment
All payment is expected at the time of purchase. Coupon codes are created with expiration dates. If you have read an ad somewhere or have been referred by a friend who gave you a code offering a discount that you are not finding in my shop, please message me and we will get to the bottom of it and see what deals and specials might still apply.
Shipping
Shipping takes place on Mondays and Thursdays only at this time. All orders processed between Friday and Monday a.m. will be processed and taken to the post office on Monday, and from Monday p.m. to Thursday a.m. will be taken to the post office Thursday.

All shipping will be USPS first class or flat rate priority mailing in an effort to give you the lowest shipping costs by the most reliable means possible. There will be occasions when I will upgrade your shipping to a flat rate priority mailer because it will save you money. I will notify you of this change and refund postage charges accordingly. There is also an upgrade available in my shop.

All custom orders have been bid at the number of days that I expect the project might take. I will communicate in advance only if I am running behind in this creation or shipping estimate. Unless otherwise specified I will mail custom orders as soon as they are completed and approved by the recipient.

Because I care greatly about the world we're leaving to our children (and grandchildren) sometimes shipping and packaging will be recycled, please do not be offended should you receive packaging that you can tell has been used before. (I carefully remove all personal information before reusing boxes and mailers... your privacy matters as much to me as my own.)
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to list all items as accurately as possible. If you have questions or concerns about an item please message me before you make your purchase. If you feel that an item is not as it was described when you receive it, please let me know and we can work something out.

Remember to read instructions given with each purchase. I will do everything I can to help you be satisfied with your purchase and cannot guarantee products that have sustained abuse.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each item in my shop is a OOAK* original piece, or is a print of an original piece that belongs to me or is a free license digital image that I have paid for. I greatly enjoy the variety and constantly changing mediums and like that this naturally places a limit on the number of similar things I will be selling. Additional pieces will replace sold items and the offerings will vary each time because I am always interested in a new medium or new finding or new inspiration and I like to share them.

I'm constantly working on new pieces for the shop. If you're looking for a particular type of item, please message me and I'll let you know when to expect more items of that type to be listed.

At this time I am not making custom orders, and I'm still always open to item suggestions. Feel free to message me and ask.

Occasionally you will see an item listed as "inspired" or "lookalike" or an actual ingredient not mentioned by name... this is my effort to provide you with transparency because some of them are not licensed items and only look like our beloved collectibles and also to protect myself from the manufacturers who own their names as well as the items, even after I have paid full price for them at retail shops. It may BE the thing, I am just not allowed to use it's name because the name belongs to someone else. If it doesn't say "lookalike" or "inspired" then it probably is what you think it is. I don't mold plastic items or resin items in the shapes of popular items that I can buy.
