The quality of this product was great! It looked just like the picture and it is very soft. I highly recommend this seller. This item was a Christmas gift for my son. The seller made sure I received it on time for Christmas!

About

My Creative Passion

I'm a native Midwesterner who has long held the description "artsy fartsy". I grew up with a crafty mom, and I inherited her creative nature. Then, after high school, despite my parents' protests, I pursued a degree in studio art.

I enjoy creating pieces that are beautiful, whimsical, playful, and practical. I believe that handmade items, especially knit & crochet, evoke a sense of nostalgia. It brings back memories of being wrapped in gaudy afghans made by my grandmother, while wearing a hat she also knit.

I'm a painter at heart, but after the birth of my first daughter and through the course of my divorce, painting just wasn't an option. I no longer had the space or the time for oil painting, so in December 2009, I taught myself to knit and crochet by utilizing the books and tools my grandmother sent me from Illinois. Within a few months, I completely fell in love with the craft.

The time & quality of handmade items is too often replaced with quick & easy, mass produced products that don't seem to last. My hope is to bring the gift of handmade into homes, one loving piece at a time.

I am an Independent Designer with Knit Picks and have had my designs featured with Holla Knits.

I create my pieces with great care and with quality materials, so you're sure to be satisfied with your purchase.

In March 2016, my daughter joined the shop with "Made by Giggles". This shop section features her creations. She is excited to spend her earnings on Shopkins toys!

About the name: CsqDesigns
My name is Casey Carroll, and when I was in college someone jokingly called me C-squared because both my first and last name started with a C, and so we have the "Csq" in CsqDesigns. I went with "Designs" rather than something medium-specific, because my creativity isn't limited to one medium. I like to play with a lot of different things and want to leave my shop open for growth.

This shop operates under my artist page on Facebook: facebook.com/CaseyCarrollArt. You can also find my blog at caseycarrollart.wordpress.com

This shop was created so I can share my creativity with others and to inspire others to reach for their dreams. Don't ever give up trying.

  • Casey

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    As an art graduate with over 15 years of experience in creating art & crafts, I have an eye for color, design, and quality. I work from my home studio where I live with my 2 daughters.

  • Giggles

    Creator, Assistant, Photographer

    My daughter "Giggles" requested (begged) me for months to sell some of her creations in my shop, so in March 2016, "Made by Giggles" was added to the CsqDesigns shop. Everything in the "Made by Giggles" section is created by Giggles herself.

I reserve the right to refuse a transaction for any reason.
Shipping
I ship via USPS and ready-made pieces leave my house in 3-5 days, depending on when the order was placed. Shipping time for custom orders are specified in the listing. Shipping costs are approximated and include the actual cost of shipping plus a small amount to cover the cost of shipping supplies and materials. If you would like to place a large order, I'll be happy to work with you to adjust the shipping price, but you must contact me first to arrange this. Please permit at least 2 weeks for delivery. If you need an item sooner, please contact me before purchase to discuss other delivery options.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (outside the U.S.)
All of my items can be shipped internationally and are handled on an individual basis, and shipping costs are approximated.

Please be aware of customs information including any fees that may be incurred on your end before purchasing. This information can be found at your local post office or on the web. Every country varies. Please permit at least 2-3 weeks for delivery. International orders must message me first so we can approximate shipping to your location. This is so I don't undercharge or overcharge you.

Please ensure that your address submitted during checkout matches your PayPal address. You may add alternate addresses to your PayPal account. If you need assistance with this, please contact me. If your PayPal shipping address and Etsy shipping address do not match, I will not ship the item until you have confirmed the correct address. I want your item to get to you!

I do not assume responsibility for items lost or damaged by the carrier, but will work to resolve any mailing difficulties within my means.

I take great pride in my work and I hope that you love the things I make for you. I also do my best to describe and photograph the item accurately. However, if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason simply notify me by email, send the piece back in unused, sellable condition within 14 days, and I will refund your purchase price. Note, however, that I will not refund the original price of shipping or return shipping.

Refunds are considered on an individual basis.

WHERE I WORK
I work primarily in my home. My home is smoke-free. I have one pet. I have a caged Holland Lops rabbit. All of my yarn is stored in sealed containers, and my finished pieces are also stored in sealed containers.
