Perfect for traveling, this scarf was the ultimate convenience and even light enough for the hot weather of New Orleans! The shop owner was amazing and shipped it out super quickly since I didn't get to orderinf the scarf quickly enough for my trip.

Love my new scarf, it's not only gorgeous but very well made. It came beautifully wrapped with a lovely thank you note for the purchase. Excellent communication with seller to complete the transaction and would definitely buy from her again!

Fort Mac's Material Girl

I've always loved to craft things. My mom taught me to sew when I was very young - when it was still an affordable thing to do (my how things have changed!). She bought me my first sewing machine when I had my daughter 25 years ago. My skills developed as I sewed for my daugher and me. My machines have gotten fancier but I still love sewing for families and their homes. I start by designing things I would like to have in my life. Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye to them!

Starting FMM Material Girl on Etsy felt very natural as I'm sort of a geek. My husband teases me about my love of gadgets and technology! It's been very satisfying setting up my store, images, logos, and more - stretching all sorts of skill sets that would otherwise go unused on a day-to-day basis!

Through Etsy I feel I am able to connect with the entire world with things I make myself. My current home is in the beautiful sub-arctic boreal forest of Northern Alberta, Canada. It is a little remote here and shopping for supplies can be a challenge. It leads to some fun shopping vacations! My online store allows me to connect with my customers and ensure they have a positive shopping experience with me. It also allows me to connect with other sellers to stay on-top of my business.

It's been a pleasure creating FMM Material Girl's online home and products for you. I hope something you've seen here has made you smile.

    I am a graphic designer and substitute teacher. My husband does shift-work so I am able to spend lots of time creating beautiful, useful, innovative, and cool things. I adore quirkiness and try to incorporate that into my shop whenever I can!

Payment must be received before I can ship your order. I will confirm electronically so shipments are not delayed (none so far!). I cannot cancel your order once it is marked shipped. Please convo me quickly if you change your mind so we can work out something that is mutually agreeable.
All shipping is done through Canada Post’s least expensive option. If you need something to arrive faster, please convo me and I will price out other options for you.
Use coupon code FMMLocal if you are in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada and convo for delivery/pickup information.
Delivery times can range from 5 - 10 business days depending on where you are located. Upon receipt of your payment I can give you a more precise delivery time.
Delivery times may take 10-15 business days. Sometimes delivery times may take up to a month due to the distance or customs. Orders will be sent with correct and detailed customs information but may still be held up by customs. It is illegal for me to mark merchandise as “gift.” Buyers are responsible for any and all duty/tax /fees that are charged by their country’s government.
If you require a change in shipping method, please indicate at the time of purchase and I will send a revised version of your invoice. As well, you can add the "tracking option" to your order but please let me know ahead of time so I can add this cost to your invoice.
The utmost care will be used to package the item(s) with proper padding and supports. Unbreakable objects are shipped in poly or tyvek envelopes (so the extra padding doesn’t inflate shipping costs). Recycled packing materials *may* be used if they are clean, suitable, and available. Please convo me immediately if you find any damage when your item(s) arrive.
If not specified I will ship your order to the address registered with Etsy. If you would like your order shipped to a different address please specify in the 'Message To Seller' box at the time of checkout.

Additional policies and FAQs
With most of my items I can customize colors, images and sizes. Just message me and we can discuss the design that you have in mind :) Please note that custom orders will require time to design and put together, so please take into account for production and shipping time. Allow for 1 - 2 weeks for custom orders to be designed and put together (based on material availability).

Please give me some feedback! I think it is so important for others to know how you felt about making your purchase with me! It also helps me know that you've received your item and (hopefully) are enjoying it :)

Message me for more information if an item can be made for wholesale orders.

If there is a discrepancy of description such as quantity, color or style between the title of the listing and the listing description, the item you are purchasing will be what the title states.
