About

Welcome to Bound to be Creative!

Bound to be Creative begins with a passion for handmade and my irresistible need to create. I come from generations of creative people, from inventors to a mother who would sew a new wool jacket for my brother using the guts of an old man's jacket, or my grandmother who made a scrap-book out of wood. Simply put, an appreciation for handmade.

My very first love is hats. My hats express personality offering an in-depth vision into a style that you create with any outfit. I like to keep my hats simple and to the point and of course...reversible. Not a lot of bells and whistles to my hats, just simple, cost effective and quality made hat.

A vision from a combination of the people that surround me and the unstoppable dreams has helped me to expand my shop into purses, HIP Mini's and hats for kids. From a dream, to a sketch, to transferring to my computer, I print my pattern and then ever-so-excitedly cut and sew the pattern until it comes into it's own beautiful, colorful work of art. The creative process continues with photographing my product and then giving that product life, in words, for the world to read.

I fondly remember browsing the fabric store with my mother, choosing the perfect color and texture and then watching earnestly, listening to the scissors cut the fabric, dreaming of the outfit that my mother was about to create for me. My creative process entails much of that same deliberate vision of dreaming of my next project. To this day going to the fabric store I'm like a kid in a candy store.

If I'm not creating for my shop I am wearing all the different hats that any mother wears....sometimes all at the same time! Five children keep me on my toes from dentist appointments, to cross-country meets, to helping out at the book fair, to kissing bruised knees and broken hearts. I try not to sweat the small stuff, give hugs and kisses to them whenever I can, and thank God for entrusting my husband and I with such a journey of raising His children.

I love Friday night movie nights with my family and the occasional Sunday skiing. You'll also find me every Saturday and Sunday morning having a coffee visit with my husband.

Thank you for visiting.

Sincerly,
Shelly

Hello! Thanks for stopping by Bound to be Creative.
I am dedicated to creating items for you that reflect everyday living with a bit of flair. From Newsboy Hats to HIP Mini's, I love to create (and I LOVE fabric!) All items are designed and created by me in my shop. I strive to make the best handmade item I can make for you. Because some hat orders are custom color requests PLEASE send me your email address so I can confirm your fabric choices. Know that due to the nature of "choices" I want to make you satisfied....and maybe I'm just a people person. If you see something that you like that you want in a different color, just let me know. Read on for additional good information about me and my shop. Thanks for stopping in!

UPDATED PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

INFORMATION I COLLECT
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support
- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

DATA RETENTION
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

YOUR RIGHTS
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

HOW TO CONTACT ME
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Shelly Daood, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at shelly [!at] boundtobecreative.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
