About Ann

Go to www.artfullyanns.blogspot.com

I have decided to use my right brain talents and enjoy creativity, color and art as I embark on yet a new life adventure. I love to travel, search for new views, materials and ideas. I work on my creations on the road, in the air, on the water or in my work room until they come out as I imagine them. I wander around shops, open air markets, native culture museums, cities, towns, mountains and beaches. Nature is always a favorite art model. My only hope is that someone will enjoy wearing or using my art as much as I enjoy creating it.

When I was young, I remember sitting around our kitchen table as my mother would draw in pencil, ink, or my favorite, pastels. She was a fashion illustrator for a local newspaper, and I remember watching her beautiful work and wishing I could create the fine lace and tailored suits she drew. Alas, her drawing skills were practiced by me, but not perfected. Thankfully, however, her enjoyment and sense of color were absorbed.

I learned to sew, knit and crochet at my grandmother’s knee. As a young adult in the depression, she was adept at tearing apart a skirt or dress to see how it was made. She was always making up her own designs and patterns. I guess that is where I learned to work freestyle.

As a teen, I was an exchange student in the Faroe Islands through American Field Service for the summer. From my host mother, I learned how to knit socks with five needles and do cross stitch. Her knitting of Fair Isle style sweaters was an inspiration to me. I also learned to shear Faroese sheep. What an experience this was for a girl of sixteen!

Now I’m ready to share my interest and excitement in the beauty of the world with others. Every day I wake up with new thoughts and plans and can't wait for the next adventure. Who knows? It might be taking pictures of flowers in my back yard, or taking a trip to Alaska to take pictures and to hunt for buttons and rocks. I only hope that you will see some treasure you like that I have discovered and can enjoy the item as much as I do. They are all my children.

Returns and exchanges
I want you to fall in love with the creation(s) you have selected. If, for some reason, you are not satisfied, please contact me via Etsy conversation and give me an opportunity to work with you.
 All refunds and exchanges are handled on a case by case base.
 I have done my best to convey the descriptions and materials used in all items. Keep in minds that these are all handmade items and do contain some variations.
 I’ve tried to photograph the items to represent the correct color, but take no responsibility for refunds on items were colors are just slightly off from the photograph.
 Additionally, twenty percent of the total cost of the order shall not be refunded, if there is no defect, but you are not satisfied. Defective products will be checked out after received and credited accordingly.
 In any case (ordering-refunding), buyer must provide back and forth shipping and handling fees.
 After receiving a package or envelope, calculated item price will be refunded via PayPal.
 Please note I cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged items after the package leaves my hands.
 I will be more than happy to add insurance or tracking for any and all items for a fee, but cannot replace or refund any item that is lost in the mail. Most of these creations are one of a kind.
Payment
PayPal or Visa are acceptable. Payment via PayPal must be received within 2 days of purchase or the transaction will be canceled and the item placed back in to inventory for sale.

I will be charging 9.5% sales tax on all orders sold to those living in Washington State. Sales tax will be deleted upon processing of order if the Buyer does not live in the State of Washington. This will be adjusted upon verification of zip code location.
Shipping
I will ship your Artfully Ann's creation(s) usually within 2 business days of payment. If there is a postal holiday, an additional day may be required.

 Shipping methods of items have been developed to provide the customer with the most cost effective method and the quickest delivery. If the item is heavy, but fits into a Priority Mail flat rate box, Priority Mail is recommended. If the item is small and very light then regular First Class Mail is recommended, but the delivery will take longer. If your item(s) are shipped via First Class Mail there will be no method of tracing the shipment. (That means there will be no tracking number.) If you wish for your item(s) to be tracked, insured or shipped via a faster method this can be arranged for an additional charge. Priority or Express shipping with additional insurance can be arranged at the time of order.

 Usually standard First class U.S. Post Office shipments take between 2 and 10 days. Delivery time varies depending on your location. If you are located internationally it may take as much as 40 days unless shipped via air mail.

 Please make sure your shipping address is correct in both PayPal and Etsy. If these are different I will ship to the address in Etsy (unless otherwise requested).

 Custom orders will be shipped in accordance with the estimate provided at the time of purchase. These times vary depending on what is being made and the backlog of orders. Normally a portion of a custom order will require a payment prior to commencement of the project, with a final payment upon shipment. Custom orders will not be taken on a “RUSH” basis as even these are original creations in their own right.

 Make note!!! There will be times when I am out on the road. I do have help with shipping; however, the time frame may lag 1 or 2 days.

 Orders will be marked shipped, once they have been mailed. You can check the status of your order through “Purchases” within “Your Etsy”.

Contact me via Etsy conversation or email if you have any questions or want to upgrade the shipping status of your item(s)
Additional policies and FAQs
- Thank you for shopping at Artfully Ann’s. It’s my wish that you have found at least one creation you have fallen in love with. Maybe you have found a number of items for people you love or are fond of. I will continue to add more and more to the eclectic collections. Please note that all these items have been made in a pet free, non-smoking environment. I try to use natural and recycled materials as much as possible as “Reuse, Recycle” is one of my golden rules. However, some of my wool and basic materials do come for locations overseas and I have no control over what environment in which these items were produced. Hand died wool and hand printed materials are my favorites, but very hard to come by at a reasonable price. Hence the cost of some items are not only in the labor, but in the hand-made nature of the materials as well. All of these items are one of a kind and have not been made from any pattern available on the commercial market.

I do accept custom orders. If you have dreamed of something and you would like to see if it can be created, I'd be more than happy to give it a try. In this case I can't guarantee it will come out the way you might envision. However, if you can generally describe it and draw a reasonable picture and explain the type of materials I'll give it a try. Let’s chat, I'm not shy!!!

Feel free to use the Etsy feed-back system or you can contact me via Etsy conversation. I look forward to hearing from you. Looking forward to doing business with you.
