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

Primitive Handmade Valentine Snowman Doll

HandmadePrimitive Snowman And Snowgirl Valentines Dolls

This is little Valentine Delivery Snowboy... and little Valentine Prairie Snowgirl...
I hadn't thought about it at the time because I created them separately and on different days, but I think they'd make a really cute couple!

They both look so old fashioned to me, In my mind, I can picture the two of them, walking arm in arm,  down an old winding road in a little old fashioned town full of little farm houses and farms on either side delivering little Valentines and gifts of love to their friends and neighbors!

I don't know what it is about Valentines Day, but it always reminds me of when I was little and in Elementary school! Each year all the children would bring in little Valentine cards in an envelope addressed to all the other children in the class, sometimes we would even put in a few little candy hearts in the envelopes, then we'd all sit in a circle on the little carpets on the floor and exchange our Valentines with each other, and we'd all go home with a whole pile of them from the other children! It was always fun to see who would write what message!

I also remember every year mom would have a little goodie bag on the kitchen table for us filled with candy hearts and hot red hearts and chocolate hearts and a little card, all wrapped up in a little bundle with a bow, and of course there would either be Valentines Day heart shaped sugar cookies with red sprinkles, or a heart shaped cake decorated all pretty!

I love to make a special meal and some kind of goodie for Valentines Day every year for me and hubby to celebrate, I think this year it will be heart shaped sugar cookies!

Valentine Prairie Snowgirl and Valentine Delivery Snowboy are available in my Etsy shop!

Till next time...Happy Valentines Day!
