🔺THE TURNAROUND TIME IS FROM 5 TO 21 BUSINESS DAYS DEPENDING ON YOUR CUSTOM ITEM SO, PLEASE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING DATE WHEN ORDERING SO YOU'LL GET IT IN TIME FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY. HOWEVER, IF YOU NEED IT BY A SPECIFIC DATE PLEASE LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT FIRST BEFORE YOU ORDER SO THAT I CAN LET YOU KNOW IF IT'S POSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO THAT.

We're glad you stopped by to browse our shop as this is the place to get cool accessories for your whole family including your furry friends.

🔹MINI DOG COLLARS FOR SMALL DOGS ARE 5/8 or 3/4 IN WIDTH FOR ALL PUPS UNDER 15lbs.
Some of my customers actually use a 1 inch width collar for their small dogs but that is a personal choice of theirs which is why you'll see some of my listing carrying a "SMALL 1 inch width size 11 to 15" to accomodate that target market. However you the pawparent must know the "correct" width and "size" of your fur-baby's collar prior to ordering one of mine since no returns are allowed due to health concerns and sanitary issues.
🔹CLEARANCE (no custom orders allowed).

THERE ARE MANY GIFT ITEMS UNDER $20, $15, AND EVEN $10 SO TAKE A LOOK AND GIVE THE GIFT OF HANDMADE WITH LOVE.

New products, fabrics, and style's are being added weekly.

IF YOU NEED A BULK ORDER MESSAGE ME ABOUT IT!!

We OFFER CUSTOM ORDERS (HENCE HANDMADE) so please if you don't see a fabric print you like or you want more than 1 item, just send me a message through ETSY and we'll get it done.

CUSTOM ORDERS...Once the details of the custom order is finalized...agreed upon by "both" buyer and seller...the buyer has 24 hours to purchase the listing unless buyer has discussed other arrangments with the seller.

QUESTIONS ABOUT CUSTOM ORDERING...If you contact me about ordering items to be received for a specific date and I say it can be done then you need to place the order at the time (current date) you are requesting it on. If the item(s) are not purchased on the date I agreed to accomodate you on then that arrangement is null and void. Also it is your responsibility to leave your request as we agreed on in the note to seller box should you be ordering separate from a custom listing. I have quite a bit of customers asking questions and can't honestly promise I'll remember the conversation we had.
Thank you for visiting!!!

🚫PLEASE NOTE: There can be some variations in placement of design on fabric, color scheme, ribbons, etc as each piece will be created just for you & as unique as possible so it may not look as pictured exactly. Also as I've learned some computer screens show color different as well which case this wouldn't be my fault. Please read the listing information pertaining to your item in it's entirety so you can be well educated on what you're getting!


Currently the TURNAROUND/SHIPPING time is 3 to 14 BUSINESS days on many of my custom orders.

🚫PLEASE CHECK YOUR ORDER RECEIPT FOR EXACT SHIP BY DATE WHICH IS CALCULATED IN BUSINESS DAYS (MONDAY - FRIDAY) NOT WEEKEND DAYS. THE SHIPPING DATE IS SET BY HOW MANY DAYS I NEED TO HAND MAKE YOUR ORDER. NOTHING IS READY MADE MADE IN MY SHOP".🛇

🔺ATTENTION🔺
Some fabrics/ribbons are custom-made and "may" take as long as 6 WEEKS (42 DAYS) days to come back in from the manufacturer.
All my items are handmade by me only...

About

It's never too late to began again and love doing it!!

This shop was created to share what I LOVE to do with other's and not to mention everyone loves handcrafted items they can customize just as they want them.

My Story
I came back to my first LOVE after a torn rotator cuff and decided this is what brings me great joy and takes away any thoughts of being in pain. Sewing and creating new things also is a great stress reliever so it has become a true labor of LOVE. When I'm in the zone my mind just goes way beyond life's issues and into this space where only creator's can understand and at the end I have this beautiful piece along with a very satisfied customer!!
I remember when my kids were young and I was suddenly a stay at home mom. I knew we needed a second income so I made fabric photo albums, fabric covered baskets, gift baskets, and even window treatments to help my husband as best I could. As the months went on I was asked to make a bib and burp cloth set and a totebag for a friend which I was more than happy to do however, after that many more people came forth inquiring about how to purchase from me. A star is born!!
So, this is how DesignsbyCristal ( actual name is Creative Designs by Cristal it wouldn't allow my whole business name) began. These days I have a little more time on my hands because my son is a Sophmore in college and my daughter is a Sophmore in high school so empty nesting is on the horizon. Bittersweet I might add but it's apart of the circle of life.
So, my creations are not only sold on Etsy but I sell anywhere I'm approached at as well as some craft/catered events. I hope you LOVE what you see and allow me to make something for you.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

INFORMATION I COLLECT

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

YOUR RIGHTS

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

HOW TO CONTACT ME

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Can I return a customed/personlized item? No, since these items are made just for YOU I can't resale them. Please be sure of your custom request such as spelling, colors, and sizes.
Fabrics that have designs on them will not always have the design placed just as it is in the picture. This will ensure you have a unique product as well.

Sizing details

Where there is a request for a size please do as the instructions ask and MEASURE for accuracy or know beforehand what size collar your pet wears.

I do not except returns on item(s) not measured properly by the customer.
The MINI 5/8' or 3/4' width dog collars are for pets (dogs/cats) under 12lbs.

The regular 1 inch width XSMALL dog collar is for larger sized small dogs such as Beagles, Jack Russell's and etc..

Care instructions

The dog collars can be potentially washed but in a mesh laundry bag in cold water (no bleach). However, the nickle hardware isn't promised to not rust!
LAY FLAT TO DRY the dog collars and leashes.

All the fabric items have to potential to be machine washed in COLD WATER in a MESH LAUNDRY BAG. However, the nickle hardware isn't promised not to rust.

If you should get your item dirty try SPOT CLEANING FIRST with a MILD DETERGENT "before" resorting to the washing machine. LAY FLAT TO DRY!!

Do I offer returns

I WILL ALLOW A RETURN OF AN ITEM IF THEIR IS A DEFECT ON MY BEHALF. I TAKE PICTURES OF THE FINISHED PRODUCT BEFORE SENDING IT OUT JUST FOR MY REFERENCE.

You the customer are responsible for ANY and ALL return shipping cost

🚫You have 24hrs to request a refund🛇.

🚫You have 5 days to ship it back to me unused or unsoiled "if a refund is approved". Once the merchandise is received the refund will be released🛇

🚫NO returns on custom made or personalized orders unless it's a manufacturing defect🛇

When will my item ship?

🚫Each order has a customized ship by date that's posted on your order receipt🛇

🚫I can sometimes get orders out before this date if my work load is light but unless I communicate this with you please adhere to your ship by date as it is posted on your order receipt🛇

🚫If you need it by an earlier date please request this before you place your order by contacting me through Etsy🛇

Does my country charge custom fees?

Each country has it's own set of custom charges so please find out what they are because once your purchase hits your country there may be additional charges that 🔹you🔹 the customer are responsible for.

I do not have any knowledge of what the custom charges are for your country. Again please beware your country may have additional custom charges related to your item
