Silly me! I meant to add information in my post from yesterday about placing orders for Christmas! I must have clicked the wrong button before posting...oops! So, I'll add that information in there today!
Most people don't really start thinking about Christmas gifts this "early" in the year. Many crafters and artists start thinking about Christmas orders and gifts on December 26th. I usually start posting information about my customers placing orders in October. This year, let's not wait as long. I want to be able to get as many people helped as possible! I have started accepting orders now for Christmas gifts.
The cut off date for placing an order is December 1. I will not accept any orders after December 1 for Christmas gifts. If you want to order a Valentine's Day gift, that's another story. I just can't guarantee completion and delivery by Christmas if orders are placed after December 1.
How do you place an order? EASY!! I have a number of different options for placing special orders.
The first is simply sending me an email! Shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org (simply click the envelope at the top of the page) and let me know what you're wanting, style, size and colors. If you have a picture of the item....FABULOUS!
The second option is find me on facebook at www.facebook.com/darcyscrochetcreations (or click the facebook icon at the top of the page) and shoot me a message. Again, I'll need to know what you're wanting, if there is a certain style, color and size. If you have a picture or a link to a picture...WONDERFUL!
The third option is the Special Order link at the very top of the page! There is a form for you to fill out with all of the information needed.
Please note that I do require a minimum of a non-refundable 50% deposit down on all special ordered items to guarantee your spot in my calendar. I will ALWAYS send at least two pictures of the finished item prior to mailing it or delivering to make sure you love your order!
I would also like to point out that I do NOT take special orders for the very large items such as blankets as these do take A LOT of time and I don't want to end up being late on a project.
If you'd like to see how much an item costs, please do not hesitate to ask! I can give you a price for items based on a number of options: number of colors, sizing, difficulty of the pattern and what type of an item you're looking for. For example a poncho for a large adult made with 5 colors is going to cost more than a poncho with two colors for a child. I do ask that my customers and potential customers remember that not only are you paying for my supplies to create your beautiful crochet gem but also the time that it takes to make the item.
Last but not least (of course!) If you don't want to wait on a special order item, you can ALWAYS check out my Etsy store! This is where I post "ready to ship" items (aside from the special order items) that you can purchase and have mailed to you right away! This is where I put the items that I make from the super special and fabulous yarn and items that I just think are gorgeous! You can click on over to that store here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DJCrochetCreations?ref=hdr_shop_menu
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I can help you out for your Christmas ( or ANY holiday) gifts for your loved ones!
Have a fabulous and yarntastic day!
I love to crochet for my family, my friends and for others. I find my peace from a crazy day or just to relax and get my creative side going when I pick up a hook and yarn. This blog is my favorite pattern links, favorite projects I've completed and just some general crochet fun!
