Anita Marra Rogers has been a lifelong painter, but she didn’t know she could sculpt until an impromptu visit to Hallmark. A friend who worked in the Keepsake Studio invited her to stop by for lunch one day, and while the other artists were out at lunch, Anita decided sculpting was worth a try. Soon enough, she’d developed a sculpting portfolio that blew both Hallmark and her friend away and has been sculpting happily ever since.

Reminders of Family

One artist shares the personal connection to her latest pup.


Ornaments can be more than just things we hang from our trees. For some, they represent happy memories of family and friends, even the furry ones.

For the 30th ornament in her Puppy Love series, Keepsake Artist Anita Marra Rogers based her design on two of her own four-legged family members— specifically GiGi and Zoey, her cousins’ Australian Shepherds (pictured below). Each of the 30 ornaments in the series has its own distinct look and pose, but they all show off the playful nature of man’s best friend. And with this Aussie pawing happily at a fallen red ornament, this year highlights the idea that there’s nothing quite as sweet as puppy love.
