Incredible! Just what I wanted, an original handmade gift for the new little bubbas in my life! Rosie was amazing to deal with, definitely buy again!!
cute, colourful, crafty
i've been crocheting since i could hold a hook (knitting too). i remeber learning to knit and crochet sitting under my grannys kitchen table before i even started school.
i took up bear making in my late teens and finally found my own obsession in toy design and making.
my early crafty experiences and later work designing and making faux fur bears has come in handy over the years and i've been able to put all that knowledge and experience to work in my current creations.
i'm obssessed with colour and colour combinations. i can't just have 1 colour i have to have every colour available. so i now have over 120 colours of yarn and collect more everytime i see a new colour to add to my stash.
i've found a new love for trims, ribbons, buttons, laces etc.. so i have dozens available now - teeny tiny buttons, pom-pom trims, embroidered and lace ribbons, glittery sparkle ribbons and so many more. everything and anything that could be essential for fancifiying my creations.

the basic breakdown is:
**there are so many countries to list shipping for, if your country is not listed it will ship for the "Everywhere" rate. this is the highest rate so if costs are less you'll get a refund. if you'd like a specific shipping cost for you country that is not listed let me know and i'll check it out.
these are guidelines for my shop http://etsy.com/shop/rosieok only and not ETSY wide policies, or policies for other ETSY sellers.
i love to chat so if you have any questions just send me a conversation.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
if you pay by e-cheque your item will not be sent until it clears, which is up to a week.
aussie buyers can use paypal or contact me for other payment options- direct deposit, cheque, australia post money order.
any custom orders will require payment before i start work. generally there are no refunds on custom orders when work has begun. the refunds policy further down will give full details.
AUSSIE BUYERS can expect their parcels in about a week after posting. i'm in NSW further states like Tassie and WA could take the full week, closer states will take less time. all aussie parcels now come with tracking numbers you can view at www.austpost.com.au
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS parcels are sent australia post airmail which is normally up to 2 weeks after posting. though it can take slightly longer (4-6 weeks) for postal service or customs delays
if you need your item faster or want tracking/registered post let me know and i'll find out the costs for you. please be aware these are extemeley expensive for international post.
i do not pay import or customs duties, taxes and charges. these are applied and collected by your country when you buy internationally. the buyer/person recieving package is responsible for this. if you aren't sure about customs limits and costs please check with your local post office.
i do not mark parcels as "gift" on customs forms. i also do not give a false $$ value on customs forms. it is illegal to give false information and if found out a very hefty fine or possible jail time are the consequences for me so please do not ask.
please make sure your etsy and paypal addresses are the same to avoid confusion about shipping. if they aren't the same i will contact you and the item won't be sent until i get a confirmation of the correct address so they aren't sent to the wrong place.
EXCESS POSTAGE -CUSTOM ORDERS:
for very large (heavy) custom orders i may need to charge extra postage costs and these will be discussed BEFORE the order is taken.
after postage and packaging costs if i've overcharged i'll refund the difference via paypal.
