The symbols are perfect! I ordered some custom ones, including a fairly intricate logo for my son's school, and they all came out great. He recognized them all right away. Thank you for your beautiful work!

About

Artsy Mommas-Sisters making stuff since we were kids.

My sister Stacey and I have been making things and being generally artsy/craftsy since we were very young. We're both moms, and we both have careers related to children's services.

Stacey is a mother of five and is trained as a Children's Massage Therapist. She also works at a local hospital. How she finds the time to make her wonderful bows and tutus is beyond me but she is a SUPER artsy momma!

Leslie has a BS in Photography and a Master's of Library and Information Science degree. She has worked in public libraries in Children's Services for over ten years and has been taking photos most of her life. Recently, Leslie took a break from her library career to be a stay-at-home mom and to run this exciting new business on Etsy. She also works at a children's art center (Art Beast) part time and leads art and story programs at various libraries in Sacramento. Leslie also does Art Birthday Parties for children so please contact her about that if you live in the Sacramento area.

Because we are feeling these tough economic times just as much as you, we offer reduced shipping rates if more than one item is purchased at once and various discounts for certain individuals, contact us for details.

We also plan to donate a portion of our sales to a charity that serves children and families. We are looking into which one to choose right now.

Thanks for your interest in Artsy Mommas and for supporting the handmade movement!

    Owner, We Make Stuff!

    Hello! I'm Leslie the geeky Momma (short red hair). I run this shop with my lovely sister Stacey- the fun Momma (purple shirt). We have been arty/crafty our whole lives and in January of 2012, we finally decided to open a shop here on Etsy.

    Owner, We Make Stuff!

    Stacey is the other Artsy Momma who makes all the lovely hair accessories and tutus as well as the jewelry in our shop. This photo shows that we come from a background of do-it-your-selfers. Stacey (cat), Leslie (skeleton), and our little sis April.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 6, 2014
Hello, and welcome to our shop! Please read all of our descriptions carefully before ordering, and contact us if you have ANY questions about our listings or policies. We look forward to hearing from you.

Remember that all of our items are handmade and many are made to order or custom made. So these items will NOT be the same as the photographs unless they are pre-made. Also keep in mind that color displays differently on every computer monitor. If you want something very specific, please don't hesitate to let us know so we can try to accommodate you. We totally encourage custom orders so you can get EXACTLY what you want. : )

For made to order and custom work, we can send photographs of the items in progress and finished via email before shipping them to ensure your satisfaction. Please request this if desired.

Payment
We accept payments by PayPal, Etsy Direct Checkout, and Money Orders in U.S. dollars.

We do collect sales tax for orders that are purchased by individuals residing in CA or having items shipped to locations within CA. The current rate is 7.5% but is subject to change.

You do not need a PayPal account to pay for your items through PayPal:
You can choose the PayPal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the “Pay Now” button. Scroll down, and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

If you are having any issues with PayPal, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will try to assist you if we can.

We expect payment within 48 hours of commitment to buy; otherwise, we reserve the right to cancel a transaction. Payment must be made in full and have cleared before the item is shipped. If we are creating a made to order or custom item, payment is required before we start the work.

Items paid for by money order will be shipped when payment is presented to and honored by my bank, usually within two business days.

Contact us with any questions about payments.

Shipping
All forms of payments must "clear" before any items can be shipped.

Our standard shipping method is currently via USPS with non-signature delivery confirmation if available (tracking is not available for all items). If you would like something shipped by a different service, or if you want your item(s) sooner, please contact me find out what additional fees this would entail.

All ready-made item(s) will be sent within 3 working days from the date payment clears (usually sooner), unless otherwise noted in the shop announcement or listing (as with some of the photographs and wall art and ALL of the made to order and custom work). It will take anywhere from 3 days-12 weeks for made to order and custom work to be completed before shipping, depending on the item and current workload. When you purchase a made to order or custom item, we will inform you of the estimated time for completion and shipping. Please let us know if you need something by a specific date, and we will try our best to accommodate you. Once payment is received, you may not cancel your order.

If your PayPal checkout and Etsy order address are different, we will ship to the Etsy address unless you provide a note to seller stating otherwise.

Once shipped, it normally takes 2-10 business days for orders to arrive if you are in the United States. Please contact the post office directly to track your order once we email you the confirmation number and follow up with them if you have any questions about delivery. Do contact us with any issues the post office cannot resolve or for further assistance.

If your order is a gift going directly to the recipient, we can include a personal message card from you and special wrapping for no extra charge. If you would like this service, please let me know what you would like me to write (to fit on a postcard) and if you want gift wrapping in the "message to seller" during checkout.

Refunds and Exchanges
Please check the listing descriptions and our shop policies for information concerning dimensions, color, style, materials, age appropriateness, and delivery details BEFORE you purchase items. Please don't hesitate to ask us ANY questions if something appears unclear, or if you just want to learn more. Be aware that for made to order items you will not receive the exact item pictured; these items are handcrafted and each is unique. Variation is to be expected and hopefully appreciated : ) Additionally, keep in mind that color displays differently on every computer monitor. Pay attention to the listing for color descriptions. We make every effort to be clear and detailed in describing our products and services.

However, if you are not happy with your item(s), please contact us within 5 working days of receiving your package. We will do our best to resolve the problem quickly. We value the feedback and opinions of customers and hope to be able to satisfy everyone.

*We reserve the right to refuse any returned items if these return policies, or any instructions provided during contact, are not followed. *Please do NOT use our shop's feedback section as a first point of contact for problems. Convo our shop or email us with issues first so that we can address them directly before you decide how you wish to judge our shop via feedback.

Refunds and exchanges are considered on a case-by-case basis. If an item is accepted for return or replacement, we'll refund the original purchase price, less shipping fees. The buyer is responsible for the cost of shipping an item back. We cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged packages. To avoid losses, please insure your packages. We must receive the returned item in a timely manner and in the same condition in which it was shipped or we cannot accept it. We will not be held responsible for any lost packages; delivery confirmation is recommended to ensure that your returned item makes it to us safely.


S P E C I A L - N O T E

Artsy Mommas would like to ask that you politely contact us first if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase for ANY reason. We wish to make every effort to satisfy our customers. There should be no reason for anyone (you or us) to be left unhappy by a transaction. Let us work something out that is fair to both parties. No refunds or exchanges will be made if you leave negative feedback for our shop prior to contacting us.

Thanks for understanding and for your support of Artsy Mommas and the handmade movement!
