EEEE Ahhh Laaa! It's been so long! How have you all been? I have missed you all! Ricky Martin wasn't kidding when he wrote the song "Livin la Vida Loca". My life has been filled with so much running around, that if life were fair I'd be bien flaca right now! After the end of April, things should calm down, and I can venture forward with art and Italian ice! That's right it's festival season! There are events and car shows a plenty, and I'm planning on making some moola! Someone's got to support my makeup habit! Believe me it takes a lot of money to look this cheap!
So in the past few months life has been full of adventures! My darling husband and I accompanied my BFF and her hubby to San Antonio TX for a gallery show that featured her and two other artists with the same name. It was called Las Tres Carolina Flores'. Let me tell you that this show was amazing! They had great Mexican hour' devours' , a bar tender serving wine, and the best lime agua fresca in the world, and also a jazz band! I felt so fancy! I rubbed elbows with artists art collectors, and art appreciating common folk! Her art was a hit! The show was a great success, and the celebration that we had on the San Antonio River walk was even better! It was a great experience, and the whole trip was a gift from our best friends. Can you believe that? We had the best time, and did so much in the 3 days that we were there, all of which involved ice cold Bud Lights!
In local news, my sister and I purchased a concession trailer, so that we can sell our La-talian Ice at larger events. We are very excited...It has air conditioning! No more sweaty scooping! Yay me! I am praying that the recession lifts and business will boom! Times have been hard, and mama needs some new bras!
I am also going to do the impossible, and get back on the wagon. I need to drop some serious poundage! Any know if the miracle skinny pill is FDA approved yet? I am totally willing to be a lab rat for that one! If anyone has any tips or info on whats working for them I'd love to hear um! I simply cannot trust my own judgment when it comes to dieting! As for now my darlings, I'm off to clean up a mess involving my middle son and some spaghetti O's! Until next time, be nice, eat ice, and let the good times roll!

My sister making a funny face...she's gonna be pissed if she sees this! Oh well I can run faster than her!
The farmers market circuit has been good to us! We are also hoping to have arts and crafts venders at our local farmers markets...they are really poppin in the summer and fall. I mean how awesome would it be to get green chili and some great art and jewelry in one place! The fee to join is only $8.00 for the day. How great is that? Art shows are charging way to much these days 2 to 3 hundred dollars..ouch! I am not doing any this summer, I just don't have the money or time! And I have to admit that I have been spending allot of time living it up with friends..perfecting my cumbia..and cupid shuffle! I also took an intensive family therapy course,(for school that is... my family does not need therapy...yet!) and have spent some quality time with my boys! I taught arts and crafts at the San Clemente vacation bible school, and I am doing a couple of classes at the local art gallery..so maybe my creative juices have been flowing! I will send out good Mojo to those of you braving the art show craziness, and to those of you that are creating just for fun, my admiration! Cheers!

All that roasting, and I hardly made any money! I did however have a good time! I really wanted to debut my loteria jewelry with a bang, but again Wrong-O! This was not my crowd of customer! Don't get me wrong the event was fun...free cookies..Starbucks samples..marshal artists, a hula hoop dancer..and even the comedy stylings of Goldie Garcia (she is famous for awesome bottle cap jewelry)! But although the entertainment was a plenty, the sales were not!
Carolyn from Flores Originals (Sigfried to my Roy) did much better than I, but still not her usual massive sales. I think I even overheard a lady call my Guadalupe bags blasphemous! Can you believe it..I call it functional devotional art! To each his own I guess. Either way..I had some fun, and this show was the push I needed to get started on my Loteria jewelry. On the bright side, I have plenty of inventory for my next show..yay me!
Flores Originals set up.
Some more of my stuff...
Carolyn's Bettie Page Box(I call her Deady page..get it?)
