Summer of Invention

The world is having some growing pains, as are humans. This little Poppet contains my entire plan for survival, and one I believe will work best for all the silly humans.

We're gonna Science the S*** outta this! (It may be obvious that I love Andy Weir's "The Martian." True, the movie is fun, but the book is Soul Inspiring.)

And, by "Science", I mean reason, practicality, planning, self-help and courage. All possible when we calm ourselves and use our brains.

Speaking of brains: They need love, care, exercise, food, and play.

Summer of Invention: The Poppet who inspired a movement. (For myself, and any other silly human who chooses to come with me.)

Shipping from United States

If your purchase is a gift or you have some other deadline, please let us know when you purchase! Additional arrangements might be needed and possible additional postage. We want you to get your Poppets and art on time!

We generally ship by U.S mail first class. Orders over $150 are shipped via Priority Mail USPS. Other arrangements are made for larger pieces and for rush or gift items on a case by case basis.

Please bear in mind that many of the poppets here are 'made to order.' Please allow time for the work to be created. Most often that's no longer than five days, but we're a small studio and things happen.
We ship orders from our Etsy store on Tuesdays and Fridays. Custom items take a bit longer, depending on the item.
