From my hands to your home.


In 2021, MonkeyBear Creations started as Tara Gets Crafty - a small booth at the local Farmer's Market. I began the season with the thought of attempting to sell the items I enjoyed creating. I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect.

I was overjoyed with how well my items were received and how many people loved my creations. I learned a lot in the first few sales, including the need for business cards and the importance of a nice display.


When I hit my sales goal for the season at the half-season mark I realized that this was something I wanted to continue to pursue, beyond my little Farmer's Market. And Monkeybear Creations was born. 


Most of my products are handcrafted (only excluding laser engraved/cut items) and most everything is one of a kind. While I may create similar items, no two pieces will be exactly the same due to the nature of wood and the process in which the items are created. 

Items that are made with wood will likely have knots, burls, holes, or other features that are created by nature. These are considered unique enhancements and are not defects. 

Also, if you remember the "what color is the dress" incident, you will be aware that the colors on your screen may not exactly match up to what you receive. This is due to differences in monitors and the weirdness that is the human eye. This is also not considered a defect. 


I take pride in my work, but I know that sometimes things happen. If you run into any issues with your order I request that you give me a chance to fix it prior to asking for a refund. 

I want you to enjoy your piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. 

Custom orders are always welcome. Please message me if you are looking for something not currently available in my shop so we can go over designs and pricing. All custom items do require a 50%, non-refundable deposit. 

Thank you for supporting my small business.
