Hi there! Thanks for visiting PenguinCraft! All of my products are handmade, by me (Amber) in my home in Ontario, Canada. I have an eclectic taste and a wide-ranging artistic focus. I make various kinds of crafts and haven't yet settled on one area as my niche, therefore my products will vary widely in style, materials, and themes. Check back often to see what new items I may have come up with.

I love our beautiful planet and the wonderful country I live in. Many of my works are inspired by the increasing need to find a new home for old objects. Two of the newest additions to the store are recycled lightbulb snowglobes and gel earrings. These light bulbs have been rescued from the landfill, and repurposed as a lovely snow globe. They can be made in many sizes, and with personalized sculptures on the inside. Send me a convo for details. The gel earrings will astound you with how feather light they feel. They're made from polycarbonate plastic sheets. These sheets were used on famous tv, film, theatre, dance, and concert events all produced here in Canada. For confidentiality reasons I can't tell you which events specifically, but wear them with the knowledge that your earrings could very well be famous! A delicious little secret for you to carry around with you while you look stunning in them. They come in a rainbow of colours, convo me if you don't see a colour you'd like!

The following policies are flexible. I consider myself a fair and reasonable person, so if you have extenuating circumstances or a situation that falls outside of the policies I have, send me a message and I'll work with you to find a solution. Above all, have fun, and enjoy your shopping!

Some countries may hold certain items at customs for a longer time than others, please check with customs of your particular country. If you would like a different method of shipping please contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your item is not in the shape you expect it to be when it arrives please ship it back in it's original (or reasonably similar) packaging and I will refund the item or exchange it at no charge except the cost of shipping it back. Exchanges may take time to process (as I may need to make an item I hadn't prepared to make). If you're unhappy with your item, please contact me directly first and I'll try to resolve the problem immediately. Please note, if you're unable to ship a broken or damaged item back I may require a photo of the broken item before I issue a refund or replacement. Some items may be rebuilt from original parts. Please convo me if you have any problems or questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of the items I make can be customized to your liking, if you would like something customized (have a name put on it, change the colour of something) contact me for more info. Please be sure to read the specific notes that come with any particular item, or are on it's listing as these notes may pertain to it's care, washing, and whether it is edible, or perishable. All of my items are handmade, and therefore are unique and one of a kind, small differences may occur from item to item as part of the handmade process, but be assured that they've been prepared with care and love. Thanks again for shopping here and if you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
