Hello and hello! I'm Marilyn Scott-Waters from www.thetoymaker.com.

Over the last nine years I have had over eight million free paper toys downloaded from my website. I love making things out of paper and send out free paper toys every month to families all over the world.

I'm a children's book writer and illustrator. I’m the creator of The Toymaker's Christmas: Paper Toys You Can Make Yourself (Sterling, 2010), and The Toymaker’s Workshop: Paper Toys You Can Make Yourself (Sterling, 2011).

My awesome sister and I spent a lovely Saturday visiting the tiny seaside town of Avalon on Catalina Island. It was drizzling in Newport Beach when we left and windy. We decided that the sea air was "brisk". (The first rule of traveling in our family is "no grumbling") The ride was only an hour so we arrived ready for adventure... Read more of this blog post »

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Whatever comes," she said, "cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

Gene Stratton-Porter
“Is he well educated?"
"Yes, I think so, as far as he's gone," I answered. "Of course he will go on being educated every day of his life, same as father. He says it is all rot about 'finishing' your education. You never do. You learn more important things each day...”
Gene Stratton-Porter, Laddie: A True Blue Story

Ernest Hemingway
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway

Albert Camus
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus

Sylvia Plath
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
