Glitter, glitter, and more glitter!

While finishing up my Master of Social Work degree, I was looking for inexpensive gifts for Christmas. I had yet to find a job, and began to focus on making things for friends and family. I got candle holders at The Dollar Store, and made designs on them with wrapping and tissue paper. I also handpainted and embellished picture frames for my family and friends as thank you gifts for helping me to get through school. I enjoy hand making cards (and I finally got a Cricut on Black Friday last year!), and I love to sponge paint. I still decoupage once in awhile, but the painting is my big thing right now. I also tend to use a lot of glitter and sparkle in everything. I try to tone it down for those who prefer less sparkle, but I must admit, I am one of those people that thinks everything is better with glitter!

Along the way, friends, family and coworkers have encouraged me to sell my items. However, I had never sold anything online before, even on Craigslist!

While I was out for surgery for three weeks earlier this year, I made name plaques for 5 of my coworkers to thank them for covering for me during my leave. I also made the painted flowers I have listed as thank you gifts for many people who attended my housewarming party earlier this year. When I gave out the plaques and the flowers at work, one coworker, who is also very creative, said to me, two days in a row, "Seriously, why aren't you selling these?"

And there it was.. the final push I needed. I opened my shop on Etsy a few weeks later! I now have a valid excuse for all the glitter I buy, and nobody can get mad when they find it all over the house! :)

    Hi everyone! I discovered my love for crafting when I was finishing up my MSW degree. I was broke, and Christmas was coming up. I decided to make gifts for my friends and family. I started with decoupage and Christmas cards, and, well, now here I am!

Payment
MadebyMicky accepts payments through PayPal and Direct Checkout.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal: You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

MadebyMicky also utilizes the Direct Checkout feature, and accepts Etsy gift cards.

If you wish to use a coupon code, it must be applied at the time of the sale, prior to payment.

Packages will NOT be sent until the payment has been received. Customers are obliged to pay within three days of placing the order. MadebyMicky will provide you with one additional day (that's four days total). If payment has not been received on the fourth day, the transaction will be cancelled.

If you are having issues with PayPal or any other aspect of the transaction, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will work with you to accommodate your needs.
Shipping
MadebyMicky ships internationally!

All orders are sent via USPS, unless noted otherwise. Notify the seller prior to making the purchase if priority or first class mail is preferred. Made to order items require 2-3 weeks to create, package, and ship. Ready to sell items will be shipped within 3-5 days of receiving payment.

I reuse boxes when possible, and recycle newspaper as packing material (in addition to bubble wrap and/or tissue paper). I take every precaution to ensure that your purchase arrives to you safely and in a timely manner.

International customers: Be aware of the Customs Rules of your country, and the VAT, Customs and other import fees that you must pay before receiving your package. I have no way to collect, or even know, what your country's rules costs may be, and I cannot be held responsible for them in any way for these fees.

MadebyMicky will send the order to the address provided to Etsy at checkout.

If you live in or near Milwaukee, WI and would like to arrange to pick up your item, please use the coupon code LOCAL for free shipping, and convo me to arrange delivery.
Additional policies and FAQs
I package shipments with bubble wrap and newspaper. I strive to package each item as safely and securely as possible, and to reuse materials for packaging if possible to diminish waste and help lower the cost of shipping and handling.
