Mary was exceptional to work with! She is super responsive and was happy to accomodate for a customized order to look like my two kitties. My husband and I LOVED the finished outcome!

A Little About Me and My Pokeberry Patch Folk Art
I am a Folk Artist living in rural South Carolina. I work with wood to create fun little toys and items for weddings and decor items. I have often done custom work.
I love the feel, smell and look of natural things--especially wood. I have a fondness for books, vintage things, pretty embroidery. lace, ribbons, etc.. As time goes by I'm sure some of those things will sneak into my shop.
My process for my wood items involves choosing just the right piece of wood, creating a design on paper or on my computer, drawing a pattern and cutting the wood after tracing my pattern. I sand the wood and transfer the detailed design then use my wood burner to create outlines for painting.
After all ths, I paint carefully within my wood burned lines just like coloring in a color book!
Finally I finish up using non toxic paints, a natural resin and a beeswax polish that contains some essential oils --my own personal recipe.
I hope you enjoy my shop!
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Here I am, doing it all by myself, just like the Little Red Hen.
I have worked hard to earn my 5 star rating on Etsy! I make sure my customers have a chance to see sketches of custom orders, and to see photos of their custom items before I ship.
I am very careful to use eco-friendly materials whenever it is possible.
I often use local to me materials, upcycled or recycled as well in my work an in my packaging.
I answer all convos as quickly as possible, often within minutes but if I happen to be away from the computer I will check for convos and reply as soon as possible- generally the same day.
I am happy to answer all questions and hope you will choose to purchase but if not I hope you will find what you are looking for elsewhere.
