Announcement   Current processing is 2 weeks BEFORE shipment. Large orders may take up to 6 weeks (due to family vacation). All items are HANDMADE to order in a clean, safe, work environment in the USA.

CUSTOMERS IN CANADA PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOUT SHIPMENT. Your order may be very delayed. I can ship thru FedEx but it will COST MORE than what is listed on the listing description because I usually use USPS.

New! You can choose GOLD or SILVER hardware for your suspenders. Other shops will not have this option! Gold is hand painted by me.

As always-kellybowbelly items are kid tested by the four roughest kids in the biz...mine. If they don't like what I make, it does not go in my shop. If something I make cannot withstand the torture my children give it, then I won't sell it to you!

About

Tim Gun says, "Make it Work" and that's what I did.

After making hair bows and frilly things for my two little girls, I was very excited to have a boy I could make "boy" stuff for. I started making him ties for church and he was the cutest, most dapper, baby around. I wanted him to wear bowties like his Pappa (my Dad, RIP). When a friend of mine started an Etsy shop, I decided to try selling the bowties and neckties I had taught myself to make.

Shortly after opening my shop, I became pregnant with baby #4. At that time, I had a 5 year old, 4 year old, and a 2 year old. Over whelming nausea and exhaustion made it difficult to keep the shop running.

When I finally felt like Kelly again, my family had moved across the country (from AZ-MI) in order for my husband to attend Law school. Our income had decreased significantly and we were living in a depressed economy with 4, small children. In order to make money and still stay at home with the small ones, I threw myself into my Etsy shop. I researched, worked, and prayed. I took advantage of the educational supports that Etsy offers and tried everything that they suggest a shop do to progress. Kellybowbelly went from a hobby to full time job. I pulled from things I learned in college (B.S. from BYU 2003), and from the artistic skills passed down from my mother (CleverClay@Etsy.com) in order to make this shop what it is today.

I am grateful to consider my shop a success. Having customers ask for custom orders keeps me on trend and so I plan to always accept them. If you look through my listings, you will see my kids modeling from infant up until now. I hope you enjoy watching them grow up on my shop pages!

Hey! I m so glad you decided to take a look. My name is Kelly (thus the name "Kellybowbelly"). I am a mother of 2 girls and 2 boys. I am also the daughter of an excentric artist and that is where I gained my love of "projects". I love to make something out of nothing. My latest thing is coming up with cute things for my kids. I like that they are originals and not many other people have them.

I accept paypal and credit cards. You have 2 days after purchase to cancel an order after purchase in order to receive a full refund.
Shipping
I ship USPS. The costs of shipping are posted on each listing. My items are "made to order" which means I don't make them until you order them. It may take up to 4 weeks before shipment. Large orders (example-wedding party) may take longer. Shipping in the U.S can take 2-5 business days. International shipping can take up to 1 month in most places.

Packages shipped in the Unites States will be assigned a tracking number. I will not be responsible for items delayed or lost in the mail. You are responsible to report the correct address to Etsy. International shipments are subject to customs delays. Please contact your customs office for questions.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am glad to accept returns on items that arrive damaged or incorrect. Please contact me right away and inform me of the problem. I cannot be responsible for items lost or delayed in the mail.
Items cannot be returned based on the shade of color. Colors vary from monitor to monitor. If you order orange and I send black, then it is obviously my mistake and I will correct it. If you order "blush" and it looks too "pinky" that is a not a returnable item. If you are particular about colors, please ask for a swatch.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items are made to order. That means the items are custom made for you. This takes time. I am not Walmart, I do not ship the next day. Please look at expected shipment times. Customers love that they can buy something here that they cannot find anywhere else. Please do not expect to be able to return items that have been custom deisgned for you. There is no guarantee that I can sell them to somene else and I will lose money and time.
