Up To My EyeBalls.....

I have been sooo busy lately I have had no time to blog. Since my Grandfather is awaiting "impatiently" at home for his back surgery and can not go anywhere, And since my children will be going with me to my upcoming show in Mesilla and will be missing out on Halloween. I decided to make our own Halloween celebration. A Halloween Festival for all ages. It started out with a little bit of family and friends and now has turned into a whole lot more and a pinata! But, the more the merrier . I decided to make a large spider pinata. Which has been a fairly easy project, time consuming, but easy. I think its coming out pretty perfect. I added string to hang it and it is pretty smooth, I left a small opening for the candy. I do have to go get more candy for this spider. Her belly is larger than expected. As soon as the party is over, I am going to be in rush mode to get my Mesilla show items ready. I need to get more candles. I have not started my prints. My ornaments have no string yet. Ahhhhh ...

I have been working on so many projects. I donated a very special ornament to my parish to hang at the archdiocese of Santa Fe. I also donated an ornament package of kitchen saints to the Calcutta in Belen. I just dropped off some art at the Tome Art Gallery for their Dia de los Muertos show. They are between Los Lunas and Belen near Tomé Hill. They have some pretty wicked stuff that other artists have submitted. Especially the senorita hand bags by Christina! You know I love those You can see one of her bags here at The Fancy Chola boutique on etsy. She will be posting more but needs as much inventory as possible for her upcoming shows.

Well I have purchased some more eskeletos/skeletons. So I will have some Frida's and Marilyn's and and a secret new one! I'll post them when they're all done. I'll also post the finished result of the Spider pinata. Well it's early and I have not had my coffee. So I am off to get that and then work on my pinata and tomb stones for the party!!
