Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe Revealed

“After Frida Kahlo died in 1954, her husband Diego Rivera shut her belongings in a bathroom at their Mexico City home, the Blue House – then demanded it be locked until 15 years after his death. In fact, the room wasn’t opened until 2004, when Ishiuchi Miyako photographed its intimate contents.” Check out the whole article and photo gallery HERE.

Magical Prints and Ethereal Colors: Winter Trends of 2014

Who else is completely enamored with these magical, fairytale and ethnic inspired prints? They are rich, they are whimsical, and they are wearable art. I do not own any of the images below but they are truly inspiring me for a new look. Being a young, artist mom on a budget, I don’t have a lot of money to spend, but I am so in love with these inspirations, I’m going to start a journey to create inspired looks. I’ll start at the thrift store and go to places like Ross and TJ Maxx to create at least a little magic in my current wardrobe (trust me, it’s much needed).

These pastels are amazing. They look like candy, or softly powdered colorful snow. This is not my usual color palette, but they’re making me so happy to look at, especially the more metallic pastels. Let’s see what I can come up with!

In addition to my own personal wardrobe, I will use these as inspiration for more winter items to add to the shop!

Thanks for reading and stay Heavenly everyone!

Historical Home Tour Event in Oxnard, CA

This weekend’s event in Oxnard was pretty, well…magical! I had a wonderful time. Thanks to Marcia Yoshida from Stampin’ Up for inviting me to participate! It was the most beautiful setting I’ve set up shop at, ever. The historical neighborhood of Oxnard with their over 100 year old Craftsman style homes, on a perfect Southern California day, breeze from the beach, and shade from the large, old trees, was the perfect setting for all my creepy and cute items, especially my newest Calavera dolls! Check out some of them below. You’ll notice they look quite different from the ones I’ve been creating so far:10414642_10152407061462083_6348389501499277395_n

All of my Calavera dolls are one of a kind. I don’t use a template to sew them and I don’t use any stencils or preconcieved ideas to design them. I just decide on a shape and paint, paint, paint! So what you’re getting when you buy one of my Calavera dolls is the direct transfer from my creativity, to you. 🙂 I also worked on some new hair flowers. These are much more involved than the ones I’ve done in the past. I had a lot of fun creating these:
