Mini 2010 Calendar

I love calendars and I especially love my little latin inspired calendar. It comes with 12 different mini prints and months.

I have created perpetual calendars, desktop calendars and now I made these cute mini ones which are perfect for a desk and doesn't take up too much room!
These photos show the matte version, but I am selling glossy ones for in my shop: Click here

Frida & Skull Garland for the Christmas Tree

I recently finished a custom order for a wonderful customer of mine who wanted to make a Frida and Skull themed Christmas Tree! What a wonderful idea!!

I made her custom skull ornaments and frida dolls that are laminated for protection and strung for garland around the tree.

She inspired me and I recently made skull garland as well.

Check it out on my Christmas tree!

I have some skull garland left and might be posting it in the shop soon:)

Happy Holidays!

Ghost Whisperer

Have I told you that I really like to watch Ghost Whisperer :)

It is on Friday nights on CBS at 9pm.

"The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with the dead. While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them pass over to the other side by working as a paranormal investigator (secretly).

Unfortunately I haven't been able to watch them lately, but to my surprise over the weekend I found that there are a few full episodes that I missed available online: Click here
Just wanted to share this little tidbit incase you like watching paranormal shows too! :) If you do, then I think you will like Ghost Whisperer.
Take care,

Feliz Dia de Los Muertos - Happy Day of the Dead

Happy Day of the Dead!!!
Happy All Saint's Day!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween and didn't eat too much chocolate! I had a wonderful Halloween and watched plenty of scary movies. I had a Halloween marathon going last night with plenty of chocolates and buttered up popcorn!!

And today is Day of the Dead, a celebration of life and a celebration for those who we love that have past on.

As you know most of my artwork is inspired by this very day. I hold this day very close to me.

The paintings and artwork might be considered morbid to most. The skulls and the theme of death that plays out in many of the pieces might appear morbid, but in actuality it is a look inside the cultures that believe in the after life and who celebrate Day of the Dead because death affects all of us throughout our lives. Death is not something that many people put much thought into until it occurs. Family members, family pets, friends, and loved ones have or will eventually pass on. The paintings and artwork that I create hopefully promotes healthy speaking and thinking about life and death.

Whether people believe in the after life or not, death is a part of life and thinking about it is not wrong or unhealthy, but rather a celebration of life.
