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!

With all the small stuff

going on in my day to day, i realized how ridiculous i am for complaining about things that can be fixed, things that really arent worth the stress i let them give me. i havent had a moment to think about anything outside of my small world.
taking breath and realizing that life can change at any moment.  How terrifying to see and hear this coming at you and what do you do with a small amount of warning?!?

the people in Oklahoma are so resiliant. i watched them looking battered and shell shock saying  things like, we will rebuild,  we are alive,this is our home and we'll stay, God granted me two wishes.

I guess i'm partial to the Red Cross, they have amazing volunteers, but there are other organizations that are there to help, so we should rally around them.

Pray for those whose hearts are broken from loss of their loved ones and the horrible disruption in their lives.

this great pic was taken from my friend Cookie DeGreve's facebook page. She is amazing.

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. "
