Welcome! I’m Mark LaFerney. Artist. Crafter. Holiday Enthusiast. Handmade Lover. Thanks for being here! I’ve been creating art my whole life. When I was very young, I would decorate my Great Grandma’s spare bedroom with paper crafts for the holidays. Whether paper chain for Christmas or paper hearts for Valentines Day, my love of the handmade was evident at an early age.

Visit my Etsy Page where you can purchase original hand made art, or if you’re interested in hiring Slumbering Alligator for custom decor or art installations in your home or business, head to the contact page!
