♥ ♥ ♥ ♥CURRENT LEAD TIME IS RUNNING 6 TO 8 WEEKS♥♥♥♥

This year I am trying something new. I will "try" to stay at a 6 to 8 week turnaround time....no more than 8 weeks. When I start getting to the point that I am exceeding that time frame, I will be putting my shop on vacation in order to catch up on the orders and then opening the shop back up when I can accept new orders.

Please allow for these "vacation modes" in your time frame for ordering for your nursery or home so that you won't be disappointed.

My goal is to give you a custom look at an affordable price while creating an heirloom for you to hand down from generation to generation.

Whatever your need might be, I will help you design the perfect item for your perfect room at a price that you can afford! And no one will ever guess that you didn't have a decorator do it for you!

I want to thank you for supporting my 100% handmade home-based business which is staffed by only myself. All designs and workmanship are done entirely by myself. So please be patient with my lead times. I want to give you the best possible workmanship for an affordable price!****

Please understand that 99% of my orders are custom orders. I will not hurry through an order to get it out sooner. I pride myself on my quality and workmanship. I make each and every decorator item myself. I understand that 6 to 10 weeks is a long time to wait for your items, but I hope that when you receive them, you will be glad that you waited!

About

Custom Nursery Designs, Curtains & Dust Ruffles For The Everyday Home!

Thank you for supporting my 100% handmade home-based business. My business is ran entirely by myself. I design, sew and package everything that goes out by myself from start to finish. Please be patient with my lead time! I want to give you a quality product at an affordable price.

I think I first started sewing when I became pregnant with my first daughter 44 years ago. I really don't know where my sewing creativity came from. No one in our family prior to myself sewed.

I first started out years ago sewing kids clothes. Then I sewed square dance clothes. These were really fun to do, but I really wanted something different to set me apart from others.

When my Mom passed away, she left her mink stole to me. What in the world was I going to do with a mink? Nobody wore them anymore! To make a long story short, I started making teddy bears out of mink. Thus born my Bear Hugs! business.

Then after I did that for about 10 years, we moved and I needed drapes for my home. But just not plain old drapes....I wanted the ruffles and poufs and big headers! I couldn't afford to have them made, so I learned how to make them myself. Thus born Shades Up! business.

I was the Midday Decorator on Channel 4 for a year, and was featured on every local channel in our area with my drapes and balloon valances. My home turned into a workroom with rolls of fabrics everywhere, orders hanging on the walls and windows, etc. But I loved creating a window treatments!

I was working with local designers, but I also wanted my draperies to be available to people who couldn't afford to have a designer come into their homes. So I opened my workroom up to the public.

After 12 years of having sewing machines in my dining rooms, and rolls of fabrics everywhere, I decided to close my workroom. I went about life doing "ordinary" jobs, but still missed the creativity of designing and sewing draperies.

Recently, I have opened my workroom back up and am now creating a lot of the Shabby Chic and Farmhouse Chic look in draperies. Instead of the $35.00/yard decorator fabric, I use 100% cotton muslin, and drop cloths for my panels. Lots of vintage ruffles and repurposing of different fabrics!

I hope that you will take a look at what I offer and if you have any questions, please convo me! I would be more than glad to help you or answer questions.

I happily accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

Custom order listings will be up for a maximum of 24 hours so that I can guarantee the delivery time frame I have given you. If you cannot purchase within the 24 hours, please let me know so that I can remove the listing.

Custom orders must be paid in full before they go on my work schedule.

At this time, I am not doing any payment plans or deposit listings.

Since 99% of my items are custom made to your specifications, ALL ITEMS ARE NON REFUNDABLE and NON RETURNABLE. Please purchase thoughtfully.
Shipping
♥♥DELIVERY ADDRESS, NEW POLICY:

I ship to the address which you have listed when you check out whether you use PayPal or Direct Checkout. It is the buyers responsibility to ensure the address is correct and/or current. If you will be moving BEFORE your order arrives, please convo me BEFORE you pay for your order so we can determine what the best way is to handle where the item will be shipped. Again, I only ship to the address on file, so please be aware of this policy. Anything returned to me or lost due to an incorrect address will result in new shipping charges, which will be the responsibility of the buyer

♥♥SHIPPING INSURANCE: Please note that $100 of insurance is included in Priority USPS shipping charges along with a tracking number if shipped within the US.

Thank you for your understanding!
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the custom nature of my designs, sales are final so please purchase thoughtfully. The fabric for your order is purchased at the time you purchase the listing. I know it is a long wait time to receive your items, however, if you change your mind while waiting, just know that there are NO REFUNDS OR RETURNS for any reason, so again, please purchase with that in mind. Again, your fabric is purchased immediately after you order.

As well, if in doubt about the fabric, I do offer a listing for samples of the fabric you are considering. The cost of the listing is $5.00, but if you follow thru and purchase the item(s), the $5.00 is refunded to you.

All fabric "can" vary from bolt to bolt. I have no control over that. If in doubt, please purchase the samples listing. I do not offer returns on items that you have received for any reason including not liking the fabric or it does not go with your decor. Due to people/children that have pet/dander allergies, I cannot accept any returns as I am unable to resell those items. I am more than willing to work with you to make sure that what you purchase is exactly what you need and want. So again, please purchase thoughtfully.

Thank you for your understanding!
Additional policies and FAQs
My turnaround time will vary depending on the workload, but I will let you know what the time frame is when you place your order...normally 10-12 weeks. I will do my best to get you your item as fast as possible! I do work entirely by myself making one order at a time. I won't compromise my quality and hurry through an order. If you need an item by a certain date, please convo me and I will do everything in my power to get it to you, but I can't guarantee this.

Also, please know that ALL fabrics come with flaws. I do my very best to work around them, but there are times that it is impossible. If it is an obvious or very large flaw, I don't use the fabric. The flaws that I do work with are either very minuscule, or are hidden or covered and not seen. However, this does not affect the wear of the panel or quality of the panel in any way.

My panels that I photograph are "staged". This means that I have taken more time to hang them, dress them down, make the ruffles hang just right, etc. It really isn't hard to do this. Some people are better at it than others. The pictures I show of my panels can be made to look just like that in your home; it just depends on how good you are at staging them and how long you have to work with them. :)

Frequently asked questions

Can Items Be Returned?

Since my business is 99% custom orders, I do not offer returns or refunds so please purchase thoughtfully. If you have any questions on fabric, I do offer a Sample Listing that can be purchased. If in doubt on any item, please convo me BEFORE purchase. Thank you for your understanding!

How Do You Measure Length On Your Panels

I measure from the top of the header (ruffle over rod) to the bottom of the panel NOT from the rod pocket.

As an example: If you want an 84" length and the panel has a 2" header and a 2" rod pocket, your rod would be placed at 82" (to allow for the 2" header).

When Can I Expect My Order After Purchase

If the item you purchased is in the Ready To Ship section, I will ship within 3-5 business days.

I have a statement at the top of each listing that shows what the shipping time frame is. On "most" of my crib skirts, bows and bed skirts, the lead time is 4 to 6 weeks. This time can and does change depending on my work load.

On my custom panels, there is a link you can click at the top of each listing that will take you to a page that gives you the shipping time frame.

I highly suggest that before purchasing any item from my shop to check these shipping times so that you won't be disappointed.

When in doubt, please convo me. I am glad to answer any questions!
