About

Just a girl from the beach with a dream and a brush

Magic Markings Art by Cathie Carlson celebrates life's greatest moments with handmade custom keepsake gifts for engagement, wedding, new home, birth and holidays. These treasures are created with love and care in my studio on the east coast of Virginia.

For eight years I taught art to kindergarten through eighth grade students then took what I knew and loved into a fresh direction and began an after school and summer art program called Magic Markings Art. A short while later I opened my Etsy shop under the same name.

Through Etsy I have been able to combine my lifetime love of art and creating into a full time job. My staff and I work diligently to fulfill custom orders and to keep our customers happy. We hand build much of what is in the shop from slabs of wet clay, individually stamp the letters, sketch and paint custom portraits, and continue to design new products to keep Magic Markings Art fresh and exciting.

It is our hope that these custom keepsake gifts will continue to help celebrate life's magical moments for many, many years.

Please feel free to visit me at ~ http://instagram.com/magicmarkingsart - where I post images of our work in process, art and bits of the beach life that my family and I share and love.

Live, laugh, love, and create.
Cathie Carlson

Shop policies

Located on the east coast of Virginia, Magic Markings Art marks life's magical moments with custom created keepsake gifts.

PRODUCTION TIME:

The time frame to create custom orders varies and is shown in each listing. Custom orders are created once payment is received. Rush orders may be available- please feel free to ask.

My clay pieces are handmade and each kiln firing is different so there may be a slight variation in the glaze colors or size of the pieces. Slight irregularities are part of the creation process and are what give my custom work character and make them unique.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PAYMENT

PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout is the easiest and fastest way to go. Items will be created after confirmation of payment. If payment has not been received within three days, I reserve the right to cancel the sale. Please let me know if you are experiencing difficulties processing your payment
Shipping
SHIPPING:

Make sure that the shipping address listed on your Etsy purchase is correct as this is the address I will ship to.

WITHIN THE UNITED STATES

I ship items via USPS First Class mail with Delivery Confirmation.
If you have any special shipping needs like insurance, let me know in the Message to Seller and I will adjust the rates accordingly.

EVERYWHERE ELSE IS USPS FIRST CLASS

International orders are shipped via First Class Mail International. Your order may require 4 or more weeks to be received. Many factors can influence the shipping time such as your location, the time of year, and a brief stop through customs.
Additional customs charges, fees or taxes may be due when your package is received. These charges are your responsibility and are decided by the receiving country where you live. As we do not know what each country requires as far as taxes and fees, they are not included in the price of shipping.

If you are unsure what your country requires as far as customs fees and taxes, please contact your local post office for more information before you place your order.

PACKAGING:

I am happy to send your purchase with a gift note included, please write your message in the notes to seller section when making your purchase.

I do my best to ensure your items arrive safely. If your item is damaged during the shipping process I do require a photograph of the damaged item and, in some cases, to have the damaged item returned before creating a new piece.
Refunds and Exchanges
My work is handmade so each piece is unique and one of a kind. Therefore, there will be variations in shape, color, design placement and layout. Also please remember monitors may alter colors slightly.

Customer service is very important to me. Although custom orders are final, please contact me within 3 days of receipt of your order if you aren't 100% happy with it so we can discus any options.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in a custom order, click on contact MagicMarkingsArt or send me an e-mail cathie.carlson [!at] yahoo.com. Please allow for slight variations in each piece as each one is created to order.

I reserve the right to photograph, post or sell again any design that originates as a custom order.
