If you have ever seen Maria's shop - you will notice a collection of 'whimsical' creations. About her handmade items, Maria says:
Handmade items always portray the ideas, dreams and heart of the individual creator. Mines are also bright, playful and plain fun; meant to awaken the little girl or boy in all of us. I've always looked for ways to animate any mode of creativity, as far back as I can remember. I was always making a little something either for a loved one or as a decoration. This behavior was always reinforced, encouraged and shared by my mother.
