About

TomCatt Creations

I've been sewing since I was in high school. I enjoyed the challenge of sewing and always loved making very detailed items.
I've made many wedding dresses over the years, as well as working for the theatre and ballet company making costumes.
Also, for many years my father was an Elvis impersonator. I made all 9 of his incredibly and ridiculously ornate costumes.
:-)

I sold a Voodoo Queen doll on Feb. 29, 2012 that was used in a movie 'Now You See Me', and it was released June 7, 2013.
It stars Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Cain, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, etc.

One of my rabbit dolls was purchased and used in a music video for Halo Circus, directed by Mazik Saevitz.
This was VERY exciting!!
The lead singer, Allison Iraheta, was on season 8 of American Idol. She came in 4th place.
The video finally came out on November 22, 2015.

My rabbit doll is in the little chest. You can see it better when she takes it out.
My doll also matches the dancer. It was a lot of fun to make the costume for the doll.

And I've made items for two TV commercials.

My doll career got it's start in 2001 when I went on vacation to New England to visit a friend for a week.
We visited many of the primitive shops and I fell in love with the primitive dolls.

There were no primitive shops here in South Carolina. The south wasn't ready for such things yet.
But that didn't stop me from making them when I got home. I was busting with my own ideas.

And since my first dolls were so ugly, I had the perfect name for my little doll business....The Catt's Ugly Babies.

I spent many years selling them on eBay, and then I came here to Etsy.
I no longer sell on any other venue. All of my items are sold exclusively on Etsy.

As I became more experienced in doll making, my dolls evolved. My dolls took on a much darker theme, which is actually fun to do.
They started off being primitive, but over the years I discovered new techniques. Even though I still make primitives once in a while, I love a more polished look these days.
I'm still enjoying the different ideas I can come up with.

Tom and I live way out in the woods and we're surrounded by lots of wildlife on a daily basis. So, we enjoy buying big 50 pound sacks of grains and feed for them.
Instead of tossing those Polypropylene bags into the garbage and landfill, I make them into very useful market totes. They're great for holding groceries when we shop, instead of bringing home all of those plastic bags.
Our bags last for years. And if they'll hold 50 pounds of grain, they'll hold all the groceries with ease.

Over the years I began to make my own line of dark humor greeting cards called HallDark© Greeting Cards.

As time went on I began offering my hand crocheted cowls, scarves, and hooded scarves.
I also offer craft and sewing supplies.

My husband Tom also comes up with great ideas for dolls.
He helps me so much with so many things that we recently decided to change our shop name to TomCatt Creations.

We also make TomCatt Organic Bird Suet. It's available for purchase in our shop.
We use our own recipe and we try to have our suet year round.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 10, 2016
If there are any problems, let's communicate and do our best to resolve it BEFORE leaving a review.
I promise to make every effort to communicate and resolve any problem.

AS A PROTECTION:
In order to qualify for Seller Protection with PayPal, I cannot ship to any address except for the address on the transaction page.
Here's a direct quote from their guidelines for Seller Protection:

"You must send the item to the shipping address on the Transaction Details page.
If you ship to a different address, you will not be eligible for coverage. If the buyer wants you to ship to a different address, we recommend that you ask the buyer to resubmit the payment with the new shipping address".

COMMUNICATION:
I believe in having good contact with my customers. This instills trust and confidence in the transaction. We don't have to become best friends, we're all busy, but I appreciate good communication.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL. Sometimes sellers are in desperate need to contact our customers and if they don't check the email associated with their Etsy or PayPal account, we can't communicate with them about important issues.

ITEMS ON RESERVE:
On the rare occasion that I place something on reserve for someone, it needs to be purchased on the day that was agreed upon.
Otherwise, if I have no response to my 'reminder' from the customer, it goes off of 'reserve' and up for public sale.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I take only PayPal. This is the only method of payment I accept at this time.
It's good protection for sellers and buyers.
I do not take Direct Checkout, money orders, or checks.
Shipping
PROCESSING:
I typically pack my items for shipment the next business day. All of my items are ready to ship.
(Sundays and holidays are the exception, unless otherwise stated)
If I'm working on a custom item, we'll discuss a time for the item to be completed and shipped.

I mostly ship USPS Priority, and with smaller items I ship First Class, under 13 ounces.

Unless it's a Sunday or a holiday, I typically ship the next morning after payment.

I ship to U.S. only.
There are times I make an exception.
Please be aware, any customs fees or taxes are to be paid by the buyer.
It's the buyer's responsibility to pay those fees to their own country.
I will not mark the package as a 'gift', which is in compliance to both of our country's laws and policies.

I always use Delivery Confirmation so you and I BOTH can track your package and know when to expect your item to arrive.

If the shipping charges happen to come to less than what you paid, I'll refund the difference of anything over $1.00.

In order to qualify for Seller Protection with PayPal, I cannot ship to any address except for the address on the transaction page.
Refunds and Exchanges
I stand behind my work and the items I sell. If there is a problem please let me know and we can make plans for a return.
Communication is everything.

Exchanges:
Because of the nature of the items I sell, I cannot offer exchanges.
One of a kind 'art dolls' cannot be exchanged.
I sell mostly vintage craft supplies. Each item is unique and also cannot be exchanged.

Cancellations:
Any cancellation must occur BEFORE I ship the item. And I typically ship the morning after I'm paid, with the exception of Sundays and holidays.

Requests for returns must be within 2 weeks of the transaction date.
If the item was damaged I need to see pictures.
Contact me BEFORE sending an item back to me.

In the event of a return, once the item arrives back to me I'll refund immediately, minus the shipping fees.
The post office gets the shipping fees, not me.

I pack my items incredibly well and I'm a responsible shipper. I like to pack my items as if they will be drop-kicked 4 feet in the air all around the globe.
:-)

Please remember, it's the responsibility of the BUYER to read the descriptions to make sure of what they are purchasing.
It's also the responsibility of the buyer to ask questions before a purchase.
I do my best to get to my email as fast as possible.

My husband and I do not smoke and we are never around anyone who smokes.
Additional policies and FAQs
1. If I buy something as a gift, will you ship to the recipient's address?
In order to qualify for Seller Protection with PayPal, I cannot ship to any address except for the address on the transaction page. You will need to change the shipping address BEFORE making the purchase.
2. Do you take custom orders?
I do not take custom orders at this time, but you can go ahead and ask me. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't.
3. Would you like to donate one of your items for charity?
No. I donate locally to the charities in my town.
4. Would you like to send me a free item? I own a blog and I can do a review of your item.
No.
5. Would you take less money for this item?
No. My prices are firm. I have a 'one price fits all' policy. I want to be fair to ALL of my customers, past and present.
