About

Living a Simply Squidly Life!

I grew up in a small town in California. I have always loved crafting, painting, sewing and drawing as far back as I can remember. My wonderful Aunt and Uncle, who are both artists, fueled my creative fire and supported me every step of the way. Scrapbooking came first. I filled my closet an drawers with papers, glitter, and funky cutting tools and filled my floor with different layouts to put together. Once I got into high school, crochet accessories was my passion. I always had a new beanie or scarf to show off at school each day. Orders from friends started flowing in. Once I graduated, I hear about Etsy, and Simply Squid was born. Why Simply Squid, you ask? I wanted my shop to be original, to stand out among all the other shops doing exactly the same thing. So I took something personal and made it fun. My dad has called me "Squid" since he realized it rhymed with "Syd". I took this and built my whole shop atmosphere around it. I was my shop to be upbeat and original, to have quality and class without being too rigid. "Simply" makes it elegant but "Squid" makes it fun! I enjoy creating new things and making people happy with such a personal gift. Each item was created with care and gives the buyer the promise of a quality hand crafted gift.

Hi, my name is Sydne :)

I'm currently attending college for biology. Crocheting, Scrapbooking, Drawing, and Painting are just hobbies for me. Being a college student I know the meaning of a budget so I try to keep my prices low and shipping at a realistic rate.

All items are handmade by me and only me. I take great pride in the quality of what I create and hope you enjoy each and every item.

Thank you and Happy Shopping!!!

Stay Squidly Everyone!!! ♥ Syd:)

Ready-to-Ship and In-stock items will ship within (3) business days of payment clearing through Direct Checkout or PayPal (excluding weekends and federal holidays).

Etsy has eliminated shipping speed options for all sellers as of Monday, 2/4/13. This means Simply Squid will only be able to offer one shipping option/price per region. As a result all of our listings will include First Class shipping rates and speeds as a default. If you require expedited shipping you will have to contact Simply Squid prior to making your purchase, in order to arrange an adjusted listing. Please note, most of our products are made to order and fall under a 14 day production period. Please plan your purchases accordingly.

Made-to-Order and Custom orders will ship once they have been completed. Made-to-Order and Custom items take anywhere from 1-4 weeks to complete (on average). During holidays this time period may lengthen, please take this into account prior to placing your order. Please message Simply Squid for more information about production and shipping time frames as they apply to specific items.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: Most ready-to-ship and in-stock items ship within 24-72 hours of payment received. Made-to-order items and custom orders take 1-4 weeks to produce, then an additional 2-5 BUSINESS DAYS for shipping. You have the option to choose USPS Priority or Express for your shipping options for an additional fee.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Simply Squid processes ALL International orders via First Class Mail. A flat rate based on geographic region has be set up for these items. Please message me for an exact quote on the price of shipping to your location prior to placing your order.

USPS Rate Hike for 2014 Announcement
Due to the USPS 2014 Rate Increases we have been forced to adjust our shipping and handling fees. While we have tried to keep our charges reasonable, it is impossible for us to absorb these increases. Please take note of the charges for your country when checking out. Once we process your order for shipment, if the shipping costs are less than what you have been charged, we will reimburse you the difference. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

These are the new changes for shipping through Etsy starting 01/26/14:
1.Changes to USPS postage rates will automatically be reflected on any postage purchased through Etsy Shipping Labels on January 26, 2014.
2.USPS customers can expect to see a 5% increase on average for First Class packages, with the most significant change for 1-3 oz packages.
3.There will be little to no increase applied to Priority Mail prices. Priority Mail International prices will see an overall decrease of about $0.40.
4.Delivery Confirmation included with First Class International and Priority Mail International Flat Rate envelope and Small Flat Rate boxes has expanded to 12 additional countries: Estonia, Finland, Gibraltar, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Portugal and Singapore.
5.A ninth zone has been added for Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express services going to certain remote destinations. This new zone applies to eight zip codes and allows the USPS to keep the current zone eight prices consistent between 2013 and 2014.
6.The maximum weight for shipments going to Mexico has increased to 70 lbs.
7.See the USPS 2014 Rate Comparisons chart for a comprehensive overview.

Note about Lost Packages: All customers are encouraged to purchase shipping insurance. While I cannot account for lost packages, I will do what it can to ensure that you receive your package. USPS now offers tracking information with all First Class packages, and Etsy sends notification to the email address that you have on file when your item ships. Simply Squid cannot issue refunds for lost parcels, but please contact us immediately if an issue arises.
Refunds and Exchanges
Simply Squid wants you to be happy with your purchase! If you've ordered an item and are not 100% satisfied please contact me immediately, prior to leaving feedback.

I will only accept returns prior to shipment or within 24 hours of your receipt of the ready to ship item, and it must be unwashed and unworn if the item has already been shipped. Your refund will be issued once we receive the item and inspect it. We do not reimburse customers for shipping charges to or from our shop, however we will review each order on a case by case basis.

There will be NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES on MADE-TO-ORDER or CUSTOM items as they are made to your specifications. Simply Squid does not offer refunds on purchases due to color discrepancies as all monitors display colors differently. Please read the listing descriptions FULLY and CAREFULLY as color and size information are often included. Please measure accurately when purchasing a custom item, if you are unsure of appropriate sizing, please message me. If you are not satisfied with your custom order once you receive it, please message me about a replacement, refund, or other form of accommodation.

Photographer's Special: 20% off your next purchase when I receive 3-5 professional pictures to use in my Etsy shop or on my Facebook fan page.

Laundry Care:

My items are made from a variety of materials including wool, silk, cotton, and acrylic. Please read the item descriptions carefully to determine the best laundering system for your item. You may also contact me for additional help.

Synthetic materials such as acrylic yarn may be laundered in washing machine on the gentle cycle with cold water and a mild detergent. I suggest placing your item in a lingerie bag and wash separately from other garments. Dry your item by laying it flat.

Natural materials such as wool should be hand washed using a wool safe soap. Gently swish the item in a lukewarm basin of water. Do not 'scrub' or agitate the fibers too vigorously as this can cause the yarn to felt. When finished washing you can roll the item in a clean dry towel to remove excess water, then lay flat to dry.

Natural materials such as cotton should be hand washed using a gentle soap. Gently swish the item in a lukewarm basin of water. Do not 'scrub' or agitate the fibers too vigorously as this can cause the yarn to stretch and distort. When finished washing you can roll the item in a clean dry towel to remove excess water, then lay flat to dry.

It is recommended that items made with silk by dry cleaned only.

Warning About Hats:
Hats are not toys! While I make every effort to ensure that Simply Squid's hats are safe for babies and children, I ask that you monitor their use at all times. Small parts, such as tassels, pom poms, and/or buttons can come loose and pose a choking hazard. Always inspect your Simply Squid product before putting it on your child. Discourage children from chewing on their hat or placing it near their mouth. Excessive abuse can cause the hat to come apart.

Simply Squid is not responsible for damages or injuries that may occur while wearing or using products our products. By purchasing an item you agree to these policies.
