I love creating Primitive & Folkart dolls and I incorporate that love into each and every handmade item I create. I simply love every minute of it! Here in my little home-based shop I value quality over quantity. I take my time and put lots of attention to detail into every single original One-Of-A-Kind piece of art I create, along with imagination, uniqueness and whimsy! I don't have anyone working for me. I create each and every doll, every stitch, every detail from start to finish by myself. When you add one of my items to your home you can be assured that it was completely handcrafted by me and only me. I use only high quality materials to create my art. I make sure that my items are solid, sturdy and well constructed. I realize that my items aren't just a decoration for one season, or one holiday. I know they will be brought out year after year, or on display every day of the year. Some will be given to loved ones and special friends as gifts or even handed down to children and grandchildren... they become part of a family and a home so I make sure each one is very special. I use only non-toxic materials in the creation of my art and nothing that I use has a chemical odor. The only scent my dolls will have are the wonderful, pleasant, heart-warming smells of coffee, tea, cinnamon and vanilla. I use hypoallergenic stuffing and my items are created in a completely smoke free and clean environment. Of course: Every piece of art I create has to first receive Scampers "Kitten Paw Print of Approval" before it enters my shop! Scamper is one of our cats, and he loves to hang out on my work table to supervise and help with everything I do! Every piece of art is signed and dated by me, and stamped with a little paw print. I enjoy knowing that the items I create with my whole heart, here in my home surrounded by the love of my family, will be treasured by my customers as a part of their own homes and families! God Bless, Wendy Marro

Mr. Blizzard Rings in WINTER!!

Mr Blizzard Snowman...
Available in my Etsy Shop

*His head is hand sculpted from a mix of paper and stone clay. I don't use any molds so each and every face is special and unique.

*His facial features are all hand painted and shaded, his nose and head are all one piece ( his nose isn't attached 'separetly' ) therefore it is sturdy and securely attached!

*Mr Blizzards body is made from a vintage style label that is printed on muslin. His arms are made from muslin and are hand painted white. They are wired so they are bendable and can be gently posed.

*He wears a black felt scarf and matching top hat. His top hat is decorated with some wintery stems on the brim, and popping out the top of his hat are snowy wintery stems! Hand painted white tin snowflakes have been attached here and there on the wintery stems for added whimsy!

*He holds a hand painted rusty bell,it's been painted black, then sanded lightly t allow some rusty color to show through, little tiny white snowflakes have been painted on.

* Mr Blizzard stands perfectly on his little hand painted black wood base.
* To the top of his black top hat is 11", then an additional 2" for the white snowy branches sticking out the top

I have kept him in all shades of black, white and gray and I love the look! He is even cuter in person, photos don't do him justice :-)
