She 💜's it!!! (Mom even did good on the color selection!) I ordered two & was actually kinda shocked at how quickly both were shipped...less than 24 hours after placing the order (& they were really shipped, not just marked as shipped!)! Super cuddly, soft & snuggly. It's a keeper for sure.

It is absolutely HUGE...in a very good way (especially when you're used to everything being too short cuz you're a 6ft tall girl!)! I ordered two & was actually kinda shocked at how quickly both were shipped...less than 24 hours after placing the order (& they were really shipped, not just marked as shipped!)! Super cuddly, soft & snuggly. Keeper for sure....thank you for both of them!

About

A Little About ME

A tid bit about me…

Maybe you wonder, or maybe you don’t but thought I would share a little bit about ME and how Tara's Cozy Creations came to be!

Before all of this, I taught grade three, four and six for nearly eight years. During this time, I started my own little family too and I am now the proud mother of four amazing little children! Kids are my life and what gives me so much happiness... If it is spending time with my own four kiddos and hubby, having taugh kids in the classroom, inspiring young minds to dream BIG or creating cozy blankets for children and babies! Yep that is what puts a smile on my face!!

Just prior to going on maternity leave with my first born child, I was busy sewing and creating everything I could think of for my new baby. It wasn’t long before I had everything done and plenty of baby gifts set aside for my friends’ babies, so I decided to sell some of my items locally. I started with nursing covers, changing pad covers and blankets.

My son arrived, and life was perfect. I had a full year off to enjoy him and plenty of time to create!! Lucky for me, he was a great lil sleeper and such a happy boy too! I joined the world of etsy and started to do a few tradeshows. Over a few short years my products became more popular and I was able to expand my products and fabric collections to what you see today.

What was the inspiration behind this hobby? (Ha! This really was supposed to be JUST a hobby, you know!!)

My mother and granny have been a huge inspiration to me ever since I was a little girl. They were always sewing, knitting and crocheting all sorts of items, and as soon as I could convince them to teach me, I was creating many different items as young as five years old. My mother had a sewing and quilting business for as long as I can remember and still does today. She is one of the most talented textile artists I know- so proud to be her daughter!! I can't wait to buy my girls sewing machines one day when they get bigger.

Ever since I was a little girl, I made and sewed everything!! I made doll blankets, doll clothes and furniture. I built the squirrel that lived in our backyard, a tree house with a bed and curtains for the windows. I knitted my cabbage patch kids clothes and bedding. I was a simply a child that was ALWAYS busy creating… Once I had my own little baby on the way, the gears started to turn full speed with all the things I can create for him/her.

As I am sure you can tell, I am passionate about what I do. I simply LOVE creating and I put so much love and care into everything I create or work towards in my life, if it is my business, my family, training for running and triathlon events, or teaching. I put my very best into everything and that gives me great satisfaction at a personal level.

I truly care that you are satisfied with your order. I love knowing that my blankets are some of the most important securities to babies and children all over the world; of course second to their mommies! I have made thousands of cozy creations and the exciting part of my business is that there will always be more babies being born, babies outgrowing their newborn blankets and moms finally deciding to spoil themselves with a very deserving cozy. I know that there will always be a demand for my creations. I am so very grateful for all of you too. Tara's Cozy Creations wouldn't be here today without ALL of you! So thanks! And hope to make many more thousand blankets to keep spreading the love and warmth around.

Smaller items (changing pad covers, soother clips, car seat strap covers and small blankets) are shipped regular mail without tracking. In the 25 000+ shipments I have made, I have only ever lost 4 to date, so it is extremely reliable to ship this economical method.

If insurance is purchased and your package gets lost we will replace your items for you.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is my hopes that you will love your purchases from Tara's Cozy Creations and there will be no need for a return/exchange. However, in the event that you are unhappy with your item, please contact me within 3 business days of receiving item for a request to a shop credit/exchange your item.

If this is the case, all items must be new, unwashed and in perfect condition for return. If I approve the request, you may have a few options. I will NOT accept returns on items 'made to order'. Most items in my shop are made after you order, therefore are custom. I may consider a shop credit.

It is important that customers read the full description in all the listings that they are purchasing to make sure they are clear with the dimensions, fabrics and style of the items that I will be sending. I offer swatches of all my fabrics in my shop, if you are concerned about the color/s matching your space.

Custom orders: Sorry I am unable to accept returns or exchanges on items that were custom made to your specifications. If you have any concerns, please just ask!

Cancelling an order after purchasing it. I usually start production very quickly. If you buy your item and change your mind, I will only offer a full refund within 60 minutes after purchase. Any point after that it is too late for a refund. Please make 100% sure you want your item prior to clicking submit.

In the case of a flawed item in your order, you must send pictures of the item 2-3 days after receiving it. Once pictures have been sent, I will offer several options of how we will deal with it. You will then have 48 hours to decide which option will work best for you.
I do my best to be very fair. In the thousands of items I have made in my shop, this has only ever happened a few times. I encourage you to read through my reviews to get a good feel of my shop and how customers feel about my products.

Questions still? Just send me a message and I would be happy to clarify anything for you.

How to Care for Your Cozy Items

Minky is a unique fabric on the market. It is the softest fabric you will ever feel and has taken the fabric world by storm. Minky is a 100% polyester microfiber fabric.

Care of Minky Blankets: Machine wash in Cold water and dry with Low or NO heat. It is best not to add a dryer sheet. This will keep the minky soft! I even recommend if you have the time to hang it to dry and then lightly fluff in the dryer; this will preserve the bumps for a longer period of time. NEVER iron minky because it will flatten the bumps completely!
Rose swirl minky: never dry on medium or high heat. It will take the softness if you do it too many times.

Care of Minky/Satin Blankets or Satin Ruffle or Trim:

Machine-wash warm, separately, on the gentle cycle, using no harsh detergents or bleach. Tumble-dry low, or with no-heat, removing while damp. Finish by drying flat. DO NOT

OVERDRY. Do not dry-clean. I would recommend hanging to dry, if you have the time.
