Mexicali stuff is really popular out here in Socal among the Rockabilly, hipster set. I am trying to capitalize on this trend, and truthfully love it myself! Another strange thing that is popular right now floating around the design-o-verse are mustaches! Don't ask me why, but they are too fun....
The Blog Author and her Mustache on a Stick
Here are some of my Mexican Wrestler picture frames
I have made about 7 different sizes & designs of these funny frames. I like the one above a lot and think its just in time for Father's Day! People can put their own pics in them, I snipped these from a vintage Playboy. It was pretty hard to find some that weren't too sexy, LOL!
These are little glass bottles adorned with Dia De Los Muertos skeletons made of Fimo Clay. What can I say, I LOVE Fimo Clay. You can make all kinds of stuff with it!
Next are my Day of the Dead bathing beauties! I am really proud of these little ladies!
They are made in the rustic style of real Mexican Dia De Los Muertos figures. I used Fimo Clay, wire, paint, felt, lace, yarn and glitter. I love them, they look like little pin-ups! I call them Skele-Betties!
This one look like Betty Page
I made only 4 of these little ladies, I may make more. Last year I did some that looked like Rockabilly dudes with pompadour hair do's and micro phones. They sold out! People just love the skeleton stuff!
I will be making other stuff too, and might get around to posting it for y'all! I have been nursing a cold and haven't done too much to get the garage operational again but there is a party this weekend so I gotta do it soon! We also just got a HOT TUB for the neibs and me. OH HELLS YEA! We are officially the party central neighborhood!
I'll leave you with my normally anti social kitty Muffy, who decided to be cute this morning and sleep on my record player. This is a rare photograph of her, she's normally not very tolerant of people...including me! Hava great day!
