Incredible! Mari was so informative during the entire process. Sent plenty of proofs and customized it perfectly! Can't wait to give these mother/father of the groom beer cozies to my future in laws!

Thanks very cute!! Looks good:)
MadeByMari is the Shop Where Fun Meets Function - All Handmade by Mari
I grew up in Portland, Oregon, one of the greenest and most beautiful cities around! I have ALWAYS been a crafter and have ALWAYS loved color.
When I moved south to Medford, Oregon and after dabbling in many different crafty items, I found what suited me. In 2008 I found Etsy online and opened my shop:
MadeByMari is my Etsy name.
For my tie-in on Facebook here's that link. I try to list all my new items.
And yes, I do handcraft everything.
You'll find all of my items (including my US PATENTED Cane Catcher) in the "Items" on my home page. Just click on each section to see what I've added lately.
Now go back and look at my shop! I find it easy to go ITEMS at a time to see if there's something I like! That ITEMS category listing is over to the left of my pictures, up toward the top of them.
And if you can't find what you want, just click CONTACT ME anywhere in my shop. I'm always willing to "talk" with you! A great reason would be to ask if I have different designs for the Foam Can Coolers. I have hundreds more designs than I can't possibly show here. Do you want something specific? Just ask! Not always wanting to advertise our actual name on items, initials are good for kids -- or nicknames, or just the picture. Adults love to see our names! In groups it's a must - names or nicknames (Fast Eddy, Leadfoot, Slo-poke, Blondie - whatever -- but pictures are always good for the events! Baseballs, Jeeps, Quads, Soccer Balls -- you name it. Plus the usual (or unusual) array of animals, symbols, ethnic items, worldwide places -- remember not all are listed. If you want the Eiffel Tower or a Chinese lantern, I have them. Just too plentiful to list!
This link will get you back to the shop. Thanks for reading!

I like colors and I like using my hands and my brain to create. I take pride in what makes it to my Etsy shop. I want to share my crafts with you and show that my items really do combine FUN and FUNction. Enjoy!

► I make these all of my items by hand and have been selling them successfully for over 14 years. No exposed seams on Neck Coolers. No rough edges. Check the positive feedback comments by my previous purchasers.
► I ship internationally and my approximated shipping is very close per the US Postal Service charts. However, I will check each order and refund for overcharges or ask you to pay more if necessary. This will be via Etsy CONTACT. Sometimes I might have to email you if I don't hear back.
► For multiple or custom orders with names or other special details, I will coordinate a reasonable due date, list them for your approval, and ask for 100% hard goods and labor prepayment so I can have all supplies ready for your job. When ready to ship, I will list the shipping as the only cost. Thanks for understanding this.
► If foam can wraps colors or fabrics are running low at the time of your order, I will CONTACT YOU via Etsy for an alternate color or fabric or later due date. We'll work something out between us.
► Although I try for my photos to have accurate coloration, all monitors can show colors differently.
► Choose wisely. With the low cost of my items and the relatively high cost of all shipping carriers, the only refunds I want to make are if you see an obvious error on my part. Did I embroider the wrong name? Did I send the wrong size crochet hook than the one you ordered? My items are not breakable and I wrap well. If you have a problem, please CONTACT ME immediately per the link in my shop ("Contact Me"). I'm happy to offer a fair resolution for you.
► Enjoy my shop. If you have questions, CONTACT ME via Etsy. I want you to be happy with your choices.
Accepted payment methods

REMEMBER THAT THE ADDRESS ON PAYPAL IS THE ONE THAT GOES ON THE SHIPPING LABEL. I WILL SEND IT TO THAT PERSON AND ADDRESS!!! If it doesn't match the Etsy address, I will contact you with confirmation of address. It might hold up shipping time.
Most importantly, I will make all contact with you via Etsy's contact/mail system right here.
-♦ I WILL NOT CONTACT YOU THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL -- only Etsy. Thanks. Exception: If you do not answer me through Etsy. So please check for questions here.

► If you need an item rushed to you other than First Class Mail, CONTACT ME and I will quote you the shipping cost, then list a Custom Reserved Order for extra postage.
