Announcement   IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS - Etsy is currently running a test showing prices "shipping included". I apologize that you do not see the actual price of my items, but it is beyond my control. I still combine shipping on multiple item sales and I do refund shipping overages when there is a difference. It is very confusing to us shop owners as well as our customers when they change things up. We are hopeful that it is "just a test."


Shop for WARM, COOL, HELPFUL or HAPPY.
I've got it all just for YOU or for affordable GIFTS. Why not!
==========================
EVERYTHING is handmade by me, Mari.
All of my items are affordable. I want everyone to have access.
===========================
My shipping is calculated by where you live, the weight, and a small handling fee for packaging and transportation to the post office.
Just thought you might like to know!

♥ A colorful cane strap that actually works will put a lilt in your step with my US-Patented Cane Catcher. You'll never drop or lose your cane again.

♥ A custom foam can cooler with your name and a picture embroidered on it will make you smile while keeping your beverage cool.

♥ Snowflakes are made with acrylic beads in team, school or favorite colors.
Or heck, just hang a pretty snowflake inside or out. Also for holidays or to put on gift packages instead of a bow!

♥ Easy Grip Cell Phone Stylus or Crochet Hook with polymer Overlay. The stylus is good for lots of handwork whether data entry or game playing. As to crocheting, you know that's tiring. Both are good for challenged hands.

♥ A useful crocheted neckwarmer might make the cold a little more bearable. (Holiday Gift Alert!) Great even under your big "fancy" scarf for first line cold defense or early morning walks. Hey, or for just sitting and watching TV!!

♥ REMEMBER I HAVE RAINBOW CAN COOLERS for LGBT groups or recognition! Just a name or simple picture would be nice

♥ And now and then I get a whim and make things just "because". You'll see them!

===========================================================
Pay me through Etsy via Paypal or your credit card.
My home is always smoke-free and pet-hair free.
That says it all! Have fun shopping at MadeByMari.

This should be a really nice thing to have on hand, once the weather starts to heat up. I like the look of the tie, and I definitely appreciate the way it was packaged. Great customer service, thanks!

Arrived in a timely manner, and I LOVE it! I especially like that this is more a bud just starting to bloom. Mari has put her own spin on this craft. The colors of this particular rose bud are bright and fun. It is prominently displayed on my desk and makes me SMILE when I look at it. Thank you for your usual QUALITY work on a WONDERFUL addition to your shop. I'll be back!

About

MadeByMari is the Shop Where Fun Meets Function - All Handmade by Mari

I grew up in Portland, Oregon, one of the greenest and most beautiful cities around! I have ALWAYS been a crafter and have ALWAYS loved color.

When I moved south to Medford, Oregon and after dabbling in many different crafty items, I found what suited me. In 2008 I found Etsy online and opened my shop:
MadeByMari is my Etsy name.
For my tie-in on Facebook here's that link. I try to list all my new items.
http://www.facebook.com/madebymariOregon

And yes, I do handcraft everything.

You'll find all of my items (including my US PATENTED Cane Catcher) in the "Items" on my home page. Just click on each section to see what I've added lately.

Now go back and look at my shop! I find it easy to go ITEMS at a time to see if there's something I like! That ITEMS category listing is over to the left of my pictures, up toward the top of them.

And if you can't find what you want, just click CONTACT ME anywhere in my shop. I'm always willing to "talk" with you! A great reason would be to ask if I have different designs for the Foam Can Coolers. I have hundreds more designs than I can't possibly show here. Do you want something specific? Just ask! Not always wanting to advertise our actual name on items, initials are good for kids -- or nicknames, or just the picture. Adults love to see our names! In groups it's a must - names or nicknames (Fast Eddy, Leadfoot, Slo-poke, Blondie - whatever -- but pictures are always good for the events! Baseballs, Jeeps, Quads, Soccer Balls -- you name it. Plus the usual (or unusual) array of animals, symbols, ethnic items, worldwide places -- remember not all are listed. If you want the Eiffel Tower or a Chinese lantern, I have them. Just too plentiful to list!

This link will get you back to the shop. Thanks for reading!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 5, 2017
A warm welcome from Southern Oregon, USA!

► I make these all of my items by hand and have been selling them successfully for over 16 years. No exposed seams on Neck Coolers. No rough edges. Check the positive feedback comments from my previous customers.

► I ship internationally and my shipping is calculated by the Postal Service according to where you live. Remember if you are out of the US, your Customs can and may hold back any package for any length of time. It is out of my hands once it is out of the US. Please understand that I can't do anything about it. Contact your local Post Office.

► Value Added Tax (VAT) or Customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer.

► For multiple or custom orders with names or other special details, I will coordinate a reasonable due date, list them for your approval, and ask for 100% hard goods and labor prepayment so I can have all supplies ready for your job. When ready to ship, I will list the shipping as the only cost. Thanks for understanding this.

► If foam can wraps colors or fabrics are running low at the time of your order, I will CONTACT YOU via Etsy for an alternate color or fabric or later due date. We'll work something out between us.

► Although I try for my photos to have accurate coloration, all monitors can show colors differently.

► Choose wisely. With the low cost of my items and the relatively high cost of all shipping carriers, the only refunds I want to make are if I make an obvious mistake in embroidery or sending you the wrong item. Did I embroider the wrong name? Did I send the wrong size crochet hook than the one you ordered? My items are not breakable and I wrap well. If you have a problem, please CONTACT ME immediately per the link in my shop ("Contact Me"). I'm happy to offer a fair resolution for you.

► Enjoy my shop. If you have questions, CONTACT ME via Etsy. I want you to be happy with your choices.

Payment
-♦ I accept only PayPal and credit cards or Etsy gift cards through Etsy. I do not accept any payment personally -- it all goes through Etsy checkout at the time of purchase. "Contact me" if you have questions regarding any special order we might have agreed upon.

REMEMBER THAT THE ADDRESS ON PAYPAL IS THE ONE THAT GOES ON THE SHIPPING LABEL. I WILL SEND IT TO THAT PERSON AND ADDRESS!!! If it doesn't match the Etsy address, I will contact you with confirmation of address. It might hold up shipping time.

Most importantly, I will make all contact with you via Etsy's contact/mail system right here.

-♦ I WILL NOT CONTACT YOU THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL -- only Etsy. Thanks. Exception: If you do not answer me through Etsy. So please check for questions there.
Shipping
►Your shipping is calculated by where you live, so follow the guidelines by listing your zipcode or country.

► I ship US Postal Service First Class, or International First Class. If weight warrants, it will go Priority Mail. In my Shipping profiles, I list approximately how many days it will take me to prepare the item for shipping. For example, a personalized embroidery item takes longer than a pre-made neck cooler, etc. I do not count weekends as business days.

► Remember that all Taxes and Customs charges at your end are your responsibility.

► There is a shipping discount for multiple items. If, for some reason it doesn't calculate correctly, I will refund you what the difference should have been.

► I will contact you with reasonable shipping times for special large orders.

► If you need an item rushed to you other than First Class Mail or Priority Mail, CONTACT ME and I will quote you the shipping cost, then list a Custom Reserved Order for extra postage so you can pay that extra and I can ship it out right away.

► If I have to delay a shipment for any reason, I will let you know ahead of time.

► Remember that if your postal rates seem excessively high, I do not set them. I use the US Postal charts, and add in just a small handling charge for shipping materials and transportation to the Post Office.
Refunds and Exchanges
► All sales are final unless something is damaged or sent in error. If you need to talk to me about something, CONTACT ME via Etsy if you need to. I may ask for photos of the object in question. DO IT NOW! SOONER IS BETTER.

Thanks for understanding.

► DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY SEND BACK AN ITEM AND EXPECT A REFUND.
Additional policies and FAQs
► If you want a special order, contact me. I am only able to take limited custom special orders. For example, I am happy to do them for Foam Can Coolers. Think of teams, hunting groups, bowling teams, off-road groups, etc. IF YOU DO NOT SEE A PICTURE YOU WANT, ASK FOR IT!

► Foam Can Cooliers/Wraps: If I am running short of a color for a multiple order, I will let you know and your order may be delayed by up to 2 weeks until that color comes in. Thanks for understanding.

►WARNING: Although polymer crystals in the neck coolers are nontoxic.
♦♦♦ THEY EXPAND TO SUCH AN EXTREME, THAT THEY SHOULD NOT BE LEFT AROUND SMALL CHILDREN OR ANIMALS.
♦♦♦ THEY CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS IF SWALLOWED ♦♦♦
♦♦♦ Also, do NOT run them down the drains as water will swell the crystals into the pipes.

► I can NOT make special orders on MY POLYMER CLAY PRODUCTS. My designs are limited to what I have on hand at any given time. Thanks.
