On Etsy since 2009

From the humblest of beginnings...

I just KNEW that I wanted to cloth diaper and wear my children, way back in 2004 when my children were just a gleam in my (and my husband's) newly-returned-from-Iraq eyes.

My mom bought me my first cloth diapers as a shower gift, their high cost though meant that I would be doing laundry twice a day just to avoid disposables. My grandmother had taught me how to sew in grade school and I thought "I can totally make these".

My first diapers were made from tea towels bought at the local dollar store. As I gained confidence as a mother, a cloth-diaperer, and a seamstress my diapers improved, and I started buying up better materials. I got involved with donating cloth diapers, and making them for friends, than friends of friends, and finally someone said "Hey, you should sell these on eBay!" Suddenly I was officially "in business", all while completing my graduate work in counseling and raising my daughter.

Then a fellow diaper-seamstress introduced me to Etsy in late 2008. I lurked.... and lurked... I was about to finish my graduate program and start my "real" job as a counselor, did I really want to take on another online storefront??

The simple structure and ease of getting started finally lured me in; I'd give it a try. I spent forever getting my shop set up ("I'm not tech-savvy" is an understatement), finally put up my first listing, and then couldn't find it, ANYWHERE. Frustrated, tired, holding a sleeping toddler, I was about to surrender when I realized that my item had sold - in approximately 10 SECONDS! The hook was set!

As my shop has continued to grow on Etsy I have fallen in love with the community, the structure, the chance for a creative outlet, and most importantly the opportunity to stay home with my children.

In spring 2011 this became more important than ever when my husband was killed in a car accident. Suddenly I was doing it all alone, and my Etsy shop provided me with an opportunity to remain home with my children and still make ends meet. I thank God that I am so blessed to be able to work from home creating things I love and spending time with the people I love every day!

I scaled my private practice down and have supplemented my income with my Etsy shop sales. Though I sometimes find myself wondering, in the wee hours of the morning as I sit hunched over my sewing table listening to the soft hiss of the baby monitor between the now-so-familiar clacking of my sewing machine, if I'm crazy. Yet I am so blessed to be able to do something I LOVE, share it with others, and to enjoy the opportunities it provides for my children and I.

It's my genuine hope that you will LOVE your MamaBear items and my pleasure to serve you!

LOST/STOLEN/UNDELIVERED PACKAGES

In the very rare event that your package is lost, stolen, or undeliverable as addressed:

I CANNOT be held responsible for items once the order has been shipped unless you have purchased insurance. It's not fair to me and my family when I spend a good deal of time and materials to create your items and insure they are packaged safely.

I am happy to try helping you locate your package by providing all relevant shipping information and even helping you to initiate a claim and investigation with USPS.

I encourage you to contact your local post office or speak with your carrier in the event of a non-delivery. Any items returned to me for addressing errors can be shipped out again once additional shipping has been paid.

How do returns work?

Due to the new free-shipping incentives Etsy is pushing sellers to offer all shipping is now embedded in the cost of the items for orders over $35. For that reason there will be a 15% restocking fee subtracted from any refunds for returned items (more if items are not returned in new, unused condition).

Oops! I moved and forgot to update my address!

If your mailing address is NOT correct at the time of your order and you request I change it manually I will require you to cancel the transaction and reorder with the correct address. Apparently this has been a scam situation in which people have been ordering falsely charging a stranger's account to mail items to their own address. I am sorry for the inconvenience but feel this is the best way to protect my customers.
