pumpkinbear's Shop Announcement

Pumpkin+Bear crafts handmade homeschool and natural play supplies, quilting and scrapbook materials, and upcycled creations.

My lead time for creating and mailing your orders is three business days; if you'd like expedited shipping on your purchase, please Convo me first so that I can set up a custom order that includes correct shipping for you. If you like me to ship to a secondary address, you may simply note that in the Special Instructions with your order.

What's a handmade homeschool? We are! From dinosaurs to rainbows and crayon pops to chalkboard blocks, the two adult artists-in-residence in our family spend our days collaborating with the two child artists-in-residence to create the products that our children use for learning and play--at least, we do when we're not spending the day reading novels in the hammock, or playing with the cats, or making yet another batch of sugar cookies!

Sure, you'll find educational materials here, such as numbered beanbags and rainbow-order felt board puzzles, but you'll also find items inspired by kid passions--the kid who loves rainbows and the kid who's obsessed with bees both love to help me create our rolled beeswax candles--and by adult intellectual pursuits. Yep, comic books ARE an intellectual pursuit. Good to know, right?

Here's a brief and non-exclusive list of our passions, and yes, this is what you'll find crafted for you in our shop: dinosaurs, graphic design, fish, rockets, vinyl records, quilting, fairies, reading, video games, Tibet, multiplication, unicorns, Star Wars, vintage crafting supplies, Little House on the Prairie, ponies, cooking, crayons, chemistry, and cursive. And that's just this week!

If you're seeking a custom order, please start a Conversation. If you're local and would like to pick up your order, notify me in the comments section and after I confirm, I will refund your shipping charge through Paypal.

Shipping charges are my best estimates--if you'd like to know the actual shipping cost to you, convo me with your postal code. Otherwise, if I overcharge your shipping by more than a dollar, I'll refund the excess through Paypal.
