Absolutely love it! I gave a need by date, and it came in early. Beautifully made. I didn't realize the stripped section of the skirt and the black were two different layers, (I thought the stripes were trim) but I'm thrilled. It gives more body to the skirt.

About

Designing Boom!

I never imagined back in 2009 when all of this started what it would grow into one day. To date, I have served my customers and military families all over the world. I've collaborated with some pretty amazing people, and have had the privilege of blessing those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to my country. For that I am forever grateful.

Today, I'm creating some very fun, super geeky goodness for all those who seek to connect with their inner nerd. I say this with the utmost respect, of course, being a Trekkie myself.

So all those military families out there, moms who adore their children, and geeks of all kinds, I sincerely thank you for your business. Without you, I would be nothing.

Welcome my fellow geeks! My shop is here to provide you with excellent quality products that are fun, engaging, and can stop a fan in their tracks. I love to create fun items that cover a multitude of genres, and I also do custom and specialty commission work. Please see below for FAQ's and additional information. Live long and prosper.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
At this time, we will accept credit/debit cards (either via direct checkout or otherwise), and paypal. Payment must be made in full at time of checkout.

If you have requested a custom order, and have purchased the new design sketch, that amount will be applied against your final balance at time of checkout. If you decide not to purchase my design, no problem. But the design fee is non-refundable, as it takes time to create something custom. This fee covers my time.
Shipping
All items will be shipped priority flat rate, except for local orders. Those will likely be shipped first class depending on whichever is least costly to you. If you prefer a faster shipping method, please specify. Additional insurance can be added, but please be aware that priority shipping only covers up to $50.

I will send notification of shipment, with a tracking number, if applicable. Please be aware that once the package has left my possession, any issues with receiving your package must be resolved through the shipper.

IF YOUR PACKAGE IS SHIPPED TO AN INCORRECT ADDRESS: Please know that I am not a mind reader. If your shipping address given to me at purchase is incorrect, you will need to redirect the package via the shipper. I can reship if it comes back to me, but you will need to pay the shipping amount again, as the error was not on me. PLEASE BE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT TO AVOID THIS HASSLE!!!!!!!!!
Refunds and Exchanges
We will replace your item if it is damaged because of our negligence. However, damage caused during shipping will need to be reimbursed by the shipping carrier directly. Please inspect your item upon receipt. Once the item has been delivered to your specified address, your next call must be to the service provider. Please submit a claim to the carrier if there is a discrepancy with your delivery. I can ship it to the address I am given, I can send tracking, but if the item is lost by the postal service, delayed, or sent to a wrong address, you are responsible to file a claim with them to recover your item. This rarely happens, however nothing is fool-proof.

USPS covers up to $50 for flat rate priority, and if you wish for more coverage, additional insurance can be provided upon request. This must be paid at time of checkout.

If refund is requested before the item is shipped, a full refund will be provided. Once shipped, item is a final sale and will not be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions. If the answer is not listed below, feel free to message me. I will return the message as soon as I'm able.

FAQ:

SHIPPING/PROCESSING TIME?
Yes, I really am about 6 weeks out on orders. Yes, it's absolutely worth the wait. Rush orders are not available at this time. BellaLise Designs is a one person business, and items are created when you press that order button. There is no back stock. Maybe one day, but it is not this day.

Because BellaLise Designs is run and operated by one person, I want you to know that I sincerely appreciate your patience in waiting for items to be completed. I check in only once a day with messages, as I'm working hard to complete your items. Weekends will receive a response on Monday.

CAN I GET MY ITEM FASTER?
Not at this time. All orders are created at checkout, and I carry no back stock.

WILL YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes! Please press that blue button on the left sidebar that reads REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER. I can adjust the shipping costs. Please note, the shipping time is delayed, there is often no tracking available, and any import fees or taxes are the responsibility of the customer. I can always check the cost for you ahead of time and give you an estimate so you can see the cost up front.

CUSTOM ORDERS?
Want a custom creation? Not a problem. Simply click the blue button on the left sidebar that reads REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER. Send over any photos or concept art you have, and I can create your custom design to your specifications. There is a small fee to create a new design, as it takes an average an hour to come up with something custom. The balance of the fee will be applied at check out, and if you change your mind, the deposit is non-refundable. Thank you for understanding that time is valuable.

I HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM YOU IN THE LAST 10 MINUTES. WHERE ARE YOU?
Most likely, I'm working on customer orders. This is my only job. I will do my best to respond quickly, but I usually don't check in but once a day. As soon as I'm able, you will get a response. However, if you're verbally abusive, having a bad day, or are generally an unpleasant person, you will likely be banned from my shop. This has happened only 3 times since 2009, but I will not tolerate abusive language or demands above and beyond the duties of my service. In return, you will be treated with respect and dignity, and I only ask the same from my customers. Scruffy-looking Nerf herders will not be tolerated.

Also, I am a wife and mother of 4. My family time is valuable, as I'm sure yours is. Weekends are set aside for them. I will respond Monday morning to any weekend inquiries.

CAN I WASH MY ITEM?
Most of my creations are washable, as I find it to be the most functional for my customers. However, suedecloth, leather, satin, and some more delicate fabrics are not. If you're concerned about how to care for your item, please message me for instructions. Each item is hand crafted with care. All items are stitched for maximum durability, and made to last a very long time with proper care. I use the best fabrics and other items to ensure that you are getting the best quality for your money. And as always, each product is made in the USA.

CAN I GET CUSTOM SIZING FOR MY APRON OR BAG?
My aprons are a one size, but if you would like the apron to close at the back, I'm happy to accommodate the custom sizing. Please send over your waist and hip measurements, or if you need a bodice adjustment, and I can note the order. There may be an additional cost for more yardage, or a box upgrade needed due to the additional fabric.

If you want a change in the size of the bag, or a change in the strap design, please ask. Often those requests can be accommodated. Need a zipper closure? I can add that for a small fee.

BOOT SIZES?
At this time, I'm only making one size for the boots.

YOUR ITEMS SEEM PRICEY. WHY SO MUCH?
As with all sales, there are a lot of factors that make up the cost of something. In my case, materials are a big part of this cost, as well as time and quality. If I could show you another apron or bag or boots compared right next to mine, you could easily see the difference. My aprons are sewn with great precision and care. My bags have double stitched seams, and are made from durable materials. My boots are tiny and need great skill to make them near perfect. I am also a perfectionist, and my designs are given a great deal of thought and are created individually by me personally. You will be VERY pleased with the quality of your item when you receive it. Whenever people wear my items or carry them, they are constantly stopped and praised. High quality products are worth it.

DO YOU SHARE YOUR PATTERNS?
Not at this time. Patterns are a lot of work, and I have very little spare time as it is!

SPECIALTY FABRICS?
If you're interested in a specialty fabric, I am happy to order it for you. However, if it's a very specialty item, and you decide to cancel once the item is purchased, you will receive the refund, less the cost of the specialty fabric. This is, of course, prior to shipping the item.

WHY DOES MY FABRIC/ITEM LOOK SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT?
As with all hand-made items, there can be slight variations, both in the design lines, and the fabric colors/patterns. If I can no longer get a certain fabric and need to do a substitution, I will let you know prior to shipping your item.

DO YOU DO CHARITY WORK?
Yes! Send me a private message, and if I can work it in, I'm happy to help a worthy cause.

DISCOUNTS/COUPONS?
From time to time, I offer specials and deals. Those are often posted to my facebook page. Please check back there for deals.

CAN YOU COPY THIS STYLE FOR ME?
As a designer, I'm highly perturbed when someone steals my design. Therefore, I will not be able to copy someone else's design. You will need to purchase that item from that designer or shop.

CAN I ADD EMBROIDERY OR OTHER CUSTOM THINGS?
Often, yes, I can do that. Send me a message and let's talk it over!

LOST PACKAGES?
I ship priority mail 99% of the time via USPS. They insure for up to $50 of the value of the package. If you want additional insurance, that MUST be purchased at checkout. If the package is lost in the mail or does not arrive, you will need to contact USPS with your tracking information. They will process a claim for you, as it's now out of my hands. If you send over an incorrect or incomplete address, you MUST pay the shipping charges again, as the service was provided already. I'm happy to resend the package, but the service will need to be provided as second time. Please double check that shipping address!

CAN MY ITEM BE REFUNDED?
If you request the refund before the item is completed (I understand things happen), yes. A full refund can be processed in about 48 hours via Etsy. Once the item has left my possession, no refunds are offered.

CAN I SHARE MY PHOTOS ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE?
Yes! I love to include photos and back stories on my facebook and web pages. Please let me know if I may share your photo online. People love to see customers in their creations!

More photos and creations are available to view on my Facebook page here:
