vintage bruja jewelry

vintage bruja jewelry
yahooo! i love making jewelry, i love buying hand~made jewelry....i love jewels and bling! so in the spirit of designing jewlry, i decided to create a logo! i just could not figure out what i wanted as my logo. so labor day weekend, as we were up in arizona, i had a vision of a witch or "bruja" {eeeeeeehhhheee}. i love witches, i love wizard of oz, i love "wicked"!!
plus my husband calls me "bruja". it's his term of endearment! sooo, i thought it would be an apporpriate mascot...a "bruja", !

so here she is!

what do you think? anyone out there? heeelllo!

la maison rustique

mariasella and i headed up to la maison rustique for their monthly sale at the barn. and as always linda is sooo welcomeing! i am not going to lie...i had every intention of shopping, but it was so hot, i couldn't concentrate. i walked away with a t~shirt from sherry @ glamerella junk.

there was a gypsy trailer that i wanted to take a picture of, but i was debilitated from the heat! i did not come home with the pictures, darn it! but the vendor heidi, was just so cute. the trailer has an a.c. in it, but i couldn't just hang out in there and monopolize the trailer! seriously.

we also met tricia samsal from vintage bliss. tricia is also going to be at glitterfest. mariasella and i decided that next month for the sale, we were going to have her head up a beeswaxing class to seal our art stuff! i thought...i am going to bring the wine and cheese and we are going to have a girls night out at:

la maison rustique

oct 9 @ 6pm.

$50 a person

so mark your calendars and head up to temecula, for a buzz'n girls night out. i think it's $50 a person, but all we do is come out. she will provide everything for us! i am excited! i love this group of women. seriously.....they are so fun! plus...hehehe, there is so much shopping to do!

well, tata my little pretties. oct 9th mark your calendars and hang out with the real woman of wine country!

i am hosting a time burton themed ornament swap events at kim caldwell's artistic affair
event in l.a.! i feel so priveledged to host an event that had one of the highest enrollments. i was so nervous that i would put this idea together and no one sign up....but, it has proven to be a hit! and in the spirits of my favorite holiday, halloween, {eek}! .....
we had 13 women sign up!!! {scream} !

this just set the tone for this swap that had me sqweeling with excitement. this weekend i finished my ornaments and packaged them up. so u get a sneak peek @ the finished product!
my choice for the ornament is none other than:
the madhatter from 2010 alice in wonderland.

dude! i'm going.....

i was just browsing kaari meng's website and saw this ad for a workshop she was teaching. i clicked on the link and BAM! i was so inspired. especially by the artwork for this event. 3 women laughing while crafting.....seriously! how could i pass this up. it totally matches my motto :

"...because everyday is an occasion for crafting, laughing, wine-ing and dining!"

i waited and waited for sept 1st to arrive, so that i could register, and, and, .... i just couldn't contain myself!!!

i told myself, i said, "self, you missed out on the trip to paris with kaari because of a passport. can you miss this? {thinking...jumped to another blog...read....haha!} heellll no!" i went back to the website, and i signed up for the email notification.

email notification...yah right. PPSSH! i was counting the days until i could register. it was almost as bad as me waiting for my fav issue of somerset magazines. i can't wait to get home and crack open that puppie and go right into my imagination.

i luv it! and,....i can't wait! dude! i'm going
