Everything you see is Ready-To-Ship!
And most everything makes a great gift.
It's never too early to shop for any holiday or occasion!
===========================

► Scroll to ITEMS to see all of each category.
♥ Those "fanned" crochet hook pictures have many sizes!
► Shop for WARM, COOL, HELPFUL or FUN.
► Shop for Gifts or Yourself, men, women, or kids! I'm unisex friendly.

►Now and then I get a whim to make new things just "because". You'll see them!►
♥ A comfortable stylus covered with baked on polymer clay to get a good grip on your game playing or typing in on cell phones or tablets.
==========================
My shipping is calculated by where you live, the weight, and a small handling fee for packaging and transportation to the post office.
It's also calculated by where I am at the time.
I am retired so I travel. You might see a different return address than Oregon!
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.

♥ Snowflakes are made with acrylic beads in many color combinations.
Hang a pretty snowflake inside or out. Sometimes in team colors.
Also for holiday decor, or to put on gift packages instead of a bow!

♥ EASY GRIP Cell Phone Styluses or Crochet Hooks with polymer Overlay.
Both EASY GRIP items are good for challenged hands.

♥ A useful crocheted neckwarmer might make the cold a little more bearable. (Gift Alert!) Great even under your big "fancy" scarf for first line cold defense or early morning walks. Or just for sitting around a drafty house!

♥ Coiled cloth bowls are an old art brought back. They are good for almost anything from emptying your pockets at the front hallway to serving dry food with a napkin or liner bowl inside.

===========================================================
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.

About MadeByMari

On Etsy since 2008

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. Later in life we moved to Medford, Oregon. While working in an office for a state agency, I decided to start making soap (which I have now retired) and started craft fairs on weekends. What an eye-opener compared to being a public servant!

So after retirement, I made crafting my full-time "job" and never looked back.
In 2008 I opened my Etsy shop: MadeByMari is my Etsy name.

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

And yes, I do handcraft everything myself. If my computer or computerized sewing machine hiccups, though, I do call in my husband for support!

Now go back and look at my shop! I find it easy to go ITEMS to see each type of craft at a time. That ITEMS category listing is over to the left of my pictures, up toward the top of them. It's nice that all Etsy shops are set up the same.

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 via Etsy's email there.

For my tie-in on Facebook here's that link. I try to list all my new items.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 7, 2019
A warm welcome from Southern Oregon, USA!

► I make these all of my items by hand and have been selling them successfully for over 20 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. I do add a nominal amount for materials.

►INTERNATIONAL: 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. Contact your local Post Office.

► INTERNATIONAL: Value Added Tax (VAT) or Customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer. I DO NOT PAY THEM FOR YOU.

► 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 links 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 all of Etsy's listed payments at checkout: credit card, PayPal, etc.
I do not personally touch any money. It all goes through the checkout and Etsy.
"Contact me" if you have questions regarding any special order we might have agreed upon.

- ♦ REMEMBER THAT THE ADDRESS ON PayPal OR CREDIT CARD 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.

-♦ IF YOU WANT ME TO SHIP IT TO SOMEONE ELSE, LET ME KNOW -- AND ALSO IF IT'S A GIFT so they don't get the receipt that has an amount on it!

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 are your responsibility.

► There is a shipping discount for multiple items. If it doesn't calculate correctly, I will always 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.
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 (unless they are on hold). Think of teams, hunting groups, bowling teams, clubs, off-road groups, etc. IF YOU DO NOT SEE A PICTURE YOU WANT, ASK FOR IT!

► Foam Can Coolers/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. (I may, at times put the production of these on hold - just ask)

►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.
Privacy
Once again, I do not share any of your information such as email or address with anyone. Your payment information is shared only with Etsy administration when you pay. I do not see that. Contact me if you are concerned.
