“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Guerrilla Art

So I was sitting in my studio making some gifties and I happened to look up at a shelf I have and spotted a chenille sock just begging to be something other than just a sock.
So I got to work and this new critter developed. Again I asked Helena what we should name it and she came up with Freddie.

And, I painted and dressed the mini pumpkin and he's going to be dropped off in a while across town!

I think I'm going to start making one thing every week to be dropped off randomly.
This little one is going to go to a house, but the next thing I make will be left at a bus stop.
I'm going to do a guerrilla art post every week!
Oh, the skeleton I dropped off the other day is hanging on their front door in a wreath! Yay!
Have a great day:)


  1. What a fantastic idea. I have often thought of doing a bit of guerilla gardening round here btu art! That's ingenious.x

  2. Marfi I love, love, love this idea!! What an awesome way to share your amazing art. I can't wait to see what you create each week!


  3. what a great idea! I love that...to find something in a mailbox..or the bus stop...what a surprise...

  4. Hurray for you! Guerilla art - I love it! You should take photos of where you leave your little creatures. That would be awesome. Freddie is so cute - and so is your wee elf. This is such a amazing idea. Hope it brings smiles to people's faces. :) Theresa

  5. These are sure to bring smiles of wonder to many faces!

  6. I just love the sock doll, how sweet! You are so kind to share your creations with others.

    Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend.


  7. And dearest, EVERYTHING glittery, beautiful and warm IS for YOUR taking...thank you for coming to visit me; I was unsatisfied with my post as I finished it late last night; for the first time, I felt a loss for words. I am just tired, but soon, a two week vacation awaits me! YOUR CREATIONS ARE DARLING!!!! HAVE FUN! Anita

  8. What a lovely gal you are! A great idea to give a smile to everybody.
    I wish you could drop that little elf onto my doorstep. I don't want Freddie, one is enough! But your Freddie is soooooo cute.

  9. Once again, awesome work! What a sweet thing you are doing.


  10. Marfi, your rock, lady!! Love the idea of guerrilla art!! Have you read the Guerrilla Girls Art credo?? It's hilarious. I had a copy in the inside of my locker back when I was in college going for my B.A. in art...now that was just 5 years ago that I graduated, but it kept me from taking myself too seriously...oh yea, as if!! LOL Actually, I showed it to all those baby students who took themselves too seriously, especially the guys!!

    Just to let you know, I sent your dolly..it's on it's way to sunny Tucson!!


  11. Marfi, what a wonderful way to share your amazing art...and I bet it makes you feel amazing knowing that you have made somebody happy? Yay you...can't wait to see what you create next. Ooh, and I love Theresa's idea of taking a little photo where you leave your little gifts!

  12. Very thoughtful and kind of you.

  13. these are so fun - and what a clever idea to drop them off randomly as acts of kindness! :) Have a wonderful Sunday! :)
