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.


My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. 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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt

Tomorrow he leaves

and i am so sad. Kipp heads off to Poland. I just keep trying to stay bzy but there is so much to do and i am paralyzed with sadness and nervousness. So the wheels are spinning and not accomplishing much. Today i go to the grocery store with Kipp for last minute things he needs. Small prayers i dont start crying at the Publix, tho i know i will have tear rimed eyes the next time i go and shop for just Dan and myself. I thought that when he was grown up i'd be able to easily let go but its not the case. Our family would head over to PA. every other year for Christmas to visit Dan's parents and his mom would cry when we left, year after year. Now i understand. Kipp will always be my dear son and I am always going to be proud of him and happy he is living life the way he wants as not many people take the leap of faith. Thank you so very much the inventor of Skype. I am going back to my pity party

  1. Awwww sweetie, I am sorry you're sad. But he is living a life many dream of. You should be so proud of your fine young man! You and your hubs did a great job. ♥

    Give the boys a smooch from their Auntie Peanut.

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. "
