Little tiny skeletons dance through my head

Wow, it's been a while since I had time to sit down and write a blog entry. I don't know how much in the way or "writing" you're going to get from me right now either. I've been so busy, but for great reasons! I posted about my little Day of the Dead Poppet Pendants a while ago. I wasn't so sure about the first one I made, but then my beautiful friend Emelia bought it and posted a picture of herself wearing it. Lots of people liked it! Emelia owns a great store in Boulder Creek, Ca called Air and Fire and after a little talk we decided that I would send some Poppet Pendants to her to carry in her store! I'm also going to send some Sacred Heart Pendants. I'm really really excited about it.

A few days after that I went into a great shop in Livermore called Charlotte's Web wearing the previously mentioned Sacred Heart pendant and it sparked a conversation with the lovely owner and now as of next week Charlotte's Web will be carrying a few of  each type of pendant in both their Livermore and Berkeley locations!

So with both of these things in place AND wanting to have some of these on my Etsy shop it's been a very busy week here in ye old Redroom Studio. I haven't been feeling my best either, but I have been working every day and I am so happy with the results! A few of my standard sneak peek iPhone pics for now.

I love the violet flame one!
All nekkid before color. The mermaid sold before I had a chance to list it.

The "B" sides . Um am I dating myself?
I don't have any pictures yet of all the front sides yet.

On the other side of things my Grandmother passed Wednesday morning. I am going to miss her a great deal, but am relieved that she no longer has to live in pain and suffering. These things are really my inspiration and attraction with Day of the Dead imagery. I feel it is so important to remember and honor your direct family that has passed as well as all your ancestors. To me little things like these remind me to do that on a daily basis. Your relationships don't end, just change.

  1. They look really cool! What a great reminder they are to remember those who left before us, and keep them close to our hearts. I hope you are feeling better soon. Thank you for your work, it makes people smile :)
