I love the Art of Common Courtesy, politeness, and honoring each other in all we say, do and create! I kindly ask that you honor my work, ask permission if you are in doubt, and take into respectful consideration the personal side of my creative dreams—and business. Of course, there are legalities to all of it—put into place to protect my investment, and to guide us all.
Terms and Conditions:
By using or accessing this Website, MarveLesArtStudios.com in any way, viewing or browsing within this Site, or adding your own content via online classes to the Site, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service that regulate MarveLes Art Studios and all content contained herein.
Changes to this Agreement:
Marvels Art Studios and Leslie McNeil reserve the right to modify these Terms of Service at any time. Your decision to continue to visit and make use of the Site after such changes have been made constitutes your formal acceptance of the new Terms of Service. Please review and check this Agreement for any changes on an occasional basis. If you have questions, please contact Leslie@MarveLesArtStudios.com
Online Course Content: It’s all mine, mine, mine! I interject a sense of ownership here, as well as a sense of humor! I’ve invested my heart, money and time to create this space of learning and sharing. Yes, it’s pure joy to share it! —And it’s also a professional business that supports me and my family. It’s important you know it’s not appropriate to share your login, or give free access to ANY online content. Bottom line—it’s stealing. Here’s the definition: “without permission or legal right, and without intention of returning it.” Please, please don’t do that. If you’re in doubt, just ask! Sharing online content with someone else who hasn’t paid for it, out of the “goodness of you heart” is still stealing. Be strong and courageous to do the right and honorable thing, by just saying no to such practices, or encouraging others to do so. Online course fees will not be refunded.
Sharing the Love on Social Media:
Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram; it’s all good. I love it that you are inspired, and want to pass on the goodness, and I always appreciate a shout out if you’ve benefited from my teaching, art, or website, and I appreciate it if you link back to my website. If you share that you have learned from my classes, or other content on your blog; thank you! Please do not share my online content as you do so. And, if you let me know you’ve shared on your own site about what you learned on mine, let me know! I would love to drop in, and add my encouragement to your very own beautiful works! And thanks again, for the love!
My site may contain links to other websites and online resources not owned or controlled by MarveLes Art Studios, and I do not assume responsibility for their content or general practices or those of any third party sites or services. If I have shared them, it’s because there is value in what they offer, and I have used their services. If I receive compensation for them, I will disclose it. I do not assume responsibility or liability for their site, or items they offer or contain within their site.
Yes, I do have one! My website, and all of its original content are the sole property MarveLes Art Studios and Leslie McNeil, and as such, are fully protected by the appropriate United States and International Copyright Law, and all other intellectual property rights laws. ALL CONTENT, online classes, photos, artwork or pattern are covered and protected by these laws. This includes my online class content, step-by-step photos, examples or samples, works in progress, photography and portfolio items, finished Art Quilts, live teaching classes or Mixed Media pieces of art. All are protected, and are the sole property of MarveLes Art Studios by Leslie McNeil. If you purchase an original work of art from me, you can share it how you like, but you may not copy or publish it in any kind of written form, in like content, or claim it as your own or reproduce it digitally or otherwise without prior, written permission by Leslie McNeil or MarveLes Art Studios. MarveLes Art Studios reserves all rights, express and written to original works of art.
1. Sharing: copying or redistribution of online class content of MarveLes Art Studios, will result in you being asked to withdraw or remove it immediately, and further, you will be removed from the class, and any future offerings by MarveLes Art Studios. In other words, I reserve the right to terminate or block your access to my site, MarveLes Art Studios, or any content, without any advance notice if it is discovered you are acting less than honorably at any time.
2. If in doubt—don’t do it! it’s always best to ask first! When I am conducting classes in person, I consider it an honor that someone wants to share the love, by taking photos and works in progress of fellow students, but please keep it for your personal use only! Of course, you can totally share your very own ‘in process’ steps and I have no doubt that will encourage others, too! And I encourage you to do just that! Cool!
3. Always be kind. If you’re unsure as to what you’d like to share from my website, please just ask—more importantly, let’s remember we are here to “build each other up—not to tear down.”
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring two pence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. — C.S. Lewis

It is my fervent hope everything made and sold in my SHOP section will please you as it has me—afer all, that is why I offer it! I offer a guarantee under reasonable circumstances, meaning, if you are horribly unhappy with an item, you can send it back and get a refund. If I have made an error, and shipped the wrong item, the burden is mine, and I will happily refund shipping costs. Likewise, the burden is upon you, if you are unhappy with any item. I will refund the purchase price, or offer another item of the same or greater value to make things right with my customers. Please read all the policies below.

You may also leave feedback on any purchase; I love to know my customers are happy and delighted with their purchase!
Payment is required within 24 hours of purchase, and item(s) not purchased within that time frame will be relisted if payment has not been received or prior arrangements have not been made with me. Paypal is accepted
Shipping is made via the United States Postal Service First Class Mail, Parcel Post or Priority Mail to the address you provide, or as listed on your Paypal account. If you wish it shipped to a different address, please leave a note in the checkout process, so I can provide the best service possible, and avoid unnecessary delays or frustration.

REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES:
I do my utmost to be as descriptive as possible, providing photos that give you the best image and color representation possible. Many times color changes due to the light source, such as day vs evening, and I try to make note of those in my photos.

If you are not satisfied with the item you’ve purchased, please convo me and upon return of the item, I will refund your product’s purchase price. Postage, however, cannot be refunded.
I am not responsible for lost packages, and may require a signature upon delivery depending on the item, and cost, as well as location.
