Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times. They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

Whew! What a busy couple of weeks!!

First a HUGE relief, Kipp passed his final oral exam and portfolio project!!! AND with an A!!! So that is out of the way and now he is a college graduate and ready to fly off into the world.

Thought this picture of a butterfly drying his wings on one of our garden flowers was so appropriate for my son. Anyway just super proud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kipp in time!


  1. Awwwwwww Jinx, you have every reason to be proud of Kipp!



  2. Thanks Ladies! It was an emotional month with my son graduating college and my 30th reunion. Where is the time going? Very bittersweet, but boy do i appreciate so many things now more than ever.

  3. awww, huge congrats to that handsome Kipp! What fun to see all the pics, and you are right Carol, where does the time go? It certainly is a bittersweet time, and if I could tell young mothers one thing, it would be to enjoy their children when they are young, b/c it seems a blink of an eye and they are grown.

    Congrats to you, Dan and of course Mr. Kipp himself!

  4. Woo-hoo!!! A HUGE congratulations to Kipp!!! YaY!!!


My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
