Well here we are at the I -10 flea market with lots of vendors and plenty of good food that will put a smile on your face.Opening day was met with great fanfare and lots of friendly people who enjoyed shopping in a family friendly environment. I had a blast meeting my fellow shoppe keepers and their families. Who could ask for better neighbors!The flea market offers many great booths and, of course, my shop with handmade jewelry and custom hand painted ''Dia de los muertos'' goods (that's ''Day of the dead'' for all you non-spanish speaking folks).

 This is my friend Carlos. He makes the biggest and best tasting cupcakes for only 5 dollars. Yes! You read right: 5 smackers for the most scrumptious cupcakes you'll ever taste. Be sure and catch Carlos and his amazing cupcakes at the flea market.

 Here is a happy customer, Michael, with his custom made bracelets of turtles. My one of a kind work means Michael and his family will truely have unique jewelry pieces. That's what you can have at no extra charge, a custom made one of a kind item for you and yours to cherish.
 These are the simply adorable Q'Bo girls. Their dad makes the wittiest t-shirts in El Paso. Please stop on by and say Hi to Bobby, the Q'Bo shop owner. Read a few shirts and purchase your favorite. They are sure to be a hit among friends and family. Finally, a t-shirt that speakes volumes of our El Paso culture. For those of you out-of-towners you can visit the Q'bo website by clicking here.

So if you are ever in the El Paso area when passing on the I-10 be sure to stop by and see what amazing goods you can go home with.

long time no talk

Hello! I apologize for another long time away from blogging. Things have been crazy here and I just have not  had time. But the good thing about being so busy is that everyone likes my art.
I have been setting up shop at the new I-10 fleamarket and fair and my art has been flying off the wall. I have even had some custom orders.
Here are some pictures from the last 3 orders I filled:

I have also started making 3D magnets. This is my first one. Any suggestions on what to name her?
I realized in my last post I posted my dancing couple separate and wanted to post this picture of them next to each other so you can see the full image proper.
I am still working hard on the jewelry and polymer clay! I will post updates on those creations soon.

Glad to be back!
Til next time...

Wood Burned Fridge Magnet Paintings

Sorry I have been a bit MIA these last few weeks. I have been more than busy preparing for a booth I am renting for the next month at a new fleamarket and fair opening in my town. I am working hard to have enough stock to open my etsy as well as to sell at the fleamarket.

Lately I have been painting these 4x7" wood burned fridge magnet paintings. I have really enjoyed expressing myself through this medium. I'm focusing mostly on day of the dead, skelanimals, and Aztec art.
I want to show you some of my finished work:

My personal favorite is the bride.
Do you have a favorite?
Catch you later,

La Novia (The Bride)

...Day of the Dead...
A Mexican traditional holdiay where tombstones are decorated with brightly colored skulls and skeletons. Here in the Southwest the more vibrant colors your skulls have, the better they honor the dead.
Hope you like the bride I painted. It is approximately 7x3. I made it into a magnet and I will be listing her my etsy soon.

 Isn't she beautiful!
Thanks for looking,

earrings, ketchup, and 3-2-1 cake

hello! I made a few more one-of-a-kind wire wrapped and beaded earrings

 Do you have a favorite? I also wanted to share 2 of my new food addictions with you:
Whataburger limited batch spicy ketchup. It is amazingly hot, with the right amount of kick to get your taste buds spinning.

My dear friend Art introduced me to this awesome idea called "3-2-1 cake".
It is perfect for a quick treat or if there's not enough people in your home to bake a full sized cake.
Buy 1 box of angel food cake and 1 box of any other cake mix. Mix the contants of both packages well in a gallon size plastic bag.
Whenever you have a craving for some cake just follow these directions:
in a microwave safe container (i used a small pyrex glass dish)
add 3 tablespoons of the cake mix
 Then add 2 tablespoons water.
 Mix well.
 Cook in microwave for 1 minute.
 Enjoy with frosting, fruit, toppings, ice cream... the possibilities are endless!
I was amazed at how tasty the cake was! And now I can have cake anytime easy as 3-2-1.

Till next time,
