art2theextreme is taking a short break

Note from shop owner Updated 12/5 - Thank you for the huge support and flood of orders during November! Our shop is taking a short vacation while we catch up on the 800+ orders we received from the Etsy features recently. If our little elves can work fast enough to get orders out, we may open again for few hours here and there and take a set amount of orders. Until then, please follow us on Instagram (@art2theextreme) and Facebook (Facebook.com/arttotheextreme) to see what we are up to and get the first notification when we are back open. There is also a button on our Etsy page that says “Notify Me When this Shop Reopens” that you can use to receive a notification when we start taking orders again.

Common Questions:

-Will you be opening again before Christmas?
It all depends how fast one 32week pregnant mama can work with the help of her husband. If we do open, it will be around the 18th of December or so. This is when we estimate the last of our packages from the initial rush will ship out.

-I placed an order already. When Will it ship?
The Etsy Estimated ship date is not accurate and does not take into account volume of orders a shop receives. As stated in several places when you checked out, all orders placed After November 10 will ship in time for December 24, but most likely not until the second/third week of December or so. We always encourage letting us know if there is a specific date you need your order by so we can make sure you get it on time. Other than that, we are working in order of when the orders were placed. There is just one of me and I am working day and night to get through all orders in the order they came in.

-But I placed my order at the start of all this maddness... Surely it should be here by now?
Yes. It should, and any other time of the year, we ship within 24 hours. It was really... really.... crazy at the start of November. We put notices up everywhere (shop announcement, automated emails, and even in the listing ) about shipping dates, requests for dates needed by, and other info to warn about shipping. This will get to you by Christmas! If you need your order for a specific date and did not mention this at first, please send me a convo (so it attaches to your order) and I would be happy to accommodate!

-I did not get a chance to order and really want a Custom Name Crayon Set!
We might open back up for Christmas orders. We might not. Luckily our Name Crayon sets make great gifts for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Easter, and all sorts of occasions. Please “favorite” our shop and save the code NAME2017 to use after Jan. 1 on future orders during the first few weeks of January. We will also start taking custom class Valentine orders after December 24th and will have a set amount of slots due to my pregnancy timing with Valentine's Day.

-How can I be the first to learn about any updates?
We use Instagram the most (@art2theextreme) followed by Facebook (Facebook.com/arttotheextreme) to update our awesome supporters!

-I still have a question or concern…
Feel free to send us a convo or email anyway. Etsy Convo is the safest way to connect your request to your order (address change, Name Set change, etc). It may take up to 48 hours for a response due to a high amount of messages, but I spend the wee hours of the morning/night responding to everyone.

I know this was very long, but trying to be as helpful as I can be so I can spend more time getting orders out if some of this information helps those with questions!

Thank you so much for your patience, support, and feedback. I have been thrilled with how patient and kind everyone has been. It makes a HUGE difference for our family of three (soon to be four in January). Happy Holidays!

About

The Original Rainbow Crayon Shop

I create colorful Rainbow Crayons™ in over 100+ shapes and sizes. I absolutely love working with recycled and repurposed crayons for my creations. Many people do not realize how labor intensive collecting, peeling, and melting thousands of crayons can be!

My inspiration to begin creating Recycled Rainbow Crayons came from my experiences as an Elementary Art Teacher. It was my first year teaching and I was planning a texture unit with kindergarten around the time of Earth Day. I wanted to find a way to teach my enthusiastic, young artists about being eco-friendly.

The first Rainbow Crayon I created was born in a small, wax cup. Despite the horrible smell as the colorful creations baked and the never-ending work of peeling off wrappers and wax paper, It was round and perfect in so many ways. As 28 students gazed up at me with excitement, I knew this idea was going to take off!

127 Shapes later, I continue to have the opportunity to share these fun and exciting Rainbow Crayons with you. Thank you for supporting a teacher and for being a part of my journey.

    Hi! My name is Nicole and I am the creator of Original Recycled Rainbow Crayons™. I was the first person on Etsy ever to sell a recycled crayon and have been handcrafting whimsical creatures and unique shapes out of recycled crayons for 8+ years.

Last updated on April 12, 2014
I am an elementary art teacher from Indianapolis, Indiana. I graduated from college with a Visual Arts Education degree and a Ceramics concentration.

Travel is a HUGE part of my inspiration to create art. I have been to England, Scotland, Mexico, France, and lived in Italy for a short period of time to study art.

I love working with ceramics, printmaking, and fibers most of all! In my free time, I create art to share and sell, as well as scrapbook.

Art is all around us. It is everywhere and in everything.
My art is my world and I guarantee that my work is 100% original and of the highest quality. Buyer satisfaction is of extreme importance to me.

Please enjoy and feel free to provide feedback or receive further information about myself or my products by contacting me at art2theextreme [!at] yahoo.com.

Payment
Payment is due with purchase using direct checkout on Etsy or PayPal. If you have trouble or concerns with Paypal, please do not hesitate to send me a convo and I will do my best to assist you with this process.

Orders placed with a e-check or PayPal that required days to clear will not be shipped until that payment has been cleared.
Shipping
Shipping prices include the SHIPPING and HANDLING.

All items are shipped USPS Priority or First Class Mail depending on the weight or preference by buyer (additional cost may be added for quicker shipping).

Items will be shipped according to the date range provided in the listing days after payment is received. If this is a rush order, please let me know in advance. We do have a RUSH upgrade available when checking out. This will move you to the top of the order list and first to ship!

I am known for my speedy shipping, but just in case, you can always upgrade to Express mail and the Rush Upgrade if needed.

All sales are final. Art2theextreme is not responsible for possible duties / taxes.

Due to the USPS not always getting items to their destination I strongly recommend you request insurance for your purchase, if it is a large one. I have not had a single problem thus far with package arrival and I am known for my speedy shipping.

Once I turn your package over to the USPS I cannot be responsible for whether or not it arrives or for the condition it arrives in. I package all my products with great care to prevent damage in shipping but I cannot guarantee against mishandling by the postal service.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. Mail damage and losses will be dealt on a case to case basis; please contact me if you have concerns.

My goal is to make my customers satisfied and happy with their purchases. I will be happy to exchange purchases for an item(s) of equal value. Sorry, no refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
We have a HUGE volume of sales currently and while we wish to honor requests to ship some items immediately, we cannot do this for everyone. Therefore, anyone who is need of immediate shipping, please choose the additional "HOLIDAY RUSH" upgrades available when checking out. This will move your order to the front of the line and the next in que. Thank you for your understanding and support!

Custom and Wholesale Orders are Welcome!

Please convo me with the request and I will set you up a special listing. 100% Payment is due up front on custom orders and wholesale.

Wholesale pricing available by request.


Party Packs and custom orders may take up to a week to create, and then allow a week for shipping. While USPS is typically good with quick shipping, unless you have paid for Priority, I cannot guarantee that your order will reach you in time unless prior arrangements have been made. Please allow 2 weeks at the most for these orders to reach you.
