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?)

My Valentine Flowers! Que Fancy!
And now for my brown brothas, sorry no tortilla.
Look at that ray of sunshine in all that darkness down there. Come here sweetness.
EASY. LIKE LIKE MANTECILLA ON A WARM TORTILLA.
