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!

my facebook page is still spinning so i can only add pics thru my 2017 album with a comment on that so frustrating!  ok off that rant but im sure ill get back to it!

 these are probably taking root on my pavers!
 some flowers i've dried from my garden, just keep adding on them, goal is reaching the ceiling!!!!!

Unable to use Facebook

so i'm going to have to rely on my blog more.   My facebook page is all wonky, it is spinning and i am unable to post a thing, heck i can't even click on the help word/icon.   boo!

heck even etsy has changed so i'm seriously debating on only selling through any gallery or shop i can get my work in with only a few on etsy.

any suggestions out there?

Finally got some item finished

its been such a bzy month and i just couldnt get into the groove of working.   i had/have to put boundaries on friends and stick to a schedule.       when you work at home sometimes people think your available at any moment, and if they dont understand the creative spirit, they dont understand you have to work when it hits you and if your interrupted it just ruins it.   so i'm really going to stick with this and    anyway   here are 2 new pieces i'm going to be listing on etsy today

and Darren shared with me some of his Christmas pics

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. "
