SSSOOOO pretty much my favorite thing EVER! My grandma gave me this statue because its hand broke off and asked if I wanted it because if not she was going to throw it away or something horrible like that... Well then she found the hand and gave it to me... Well I lost the hand never to be found for over 2 years. SO when I did find it again I got some E6000 and made him whole again. Then he just stared down at my from my shelf... Looking all... WHITE ....and actually sort of boring.
Then I went to Jackies house for the first time.... My mother always taught me to look with my EYES not my Hands... Well once I was old enough to realize I do whatever the fuck I want I stopped listening to this horrible concept... I went to Jackies house and touched everything. hahahaha She has mounds of handmade goodness. Felted dinosaurs, knitted plushies, Feltadermy rabbit,sugar skulls, succulents, and then God parted the sea Moses said let my people go.... and thats when I saw her...
Glittered Virgin Mary.... In all her pink glory.... Well of course the first thing I thought was... Well Glittered Virgin Marys immaculately conceive a GLITTERED JESUS... RIGHT?? Makes sense to me. So then my LDS White Jesus was corrupted into the most marvelous thing ever...

SOOOOO June was Indie Craft Month for us Handmade Brigade Gals!!! It was so fun but I am glad its over. I didn't even go to all of the events because I had to work but let me tell you it was a lot of STRESS and freaking out about it working out since it really was our first time as a group organizing all of these events! It went ssooo well! We even got in the Orange County Register!! That was a shock! I found out why I was eating lunch in Zion! My 15 seconds of fame ahahaha!
The first show was in Cerritos which technically not in Orange County but it was the tall mouse with the biggest parking lot. There was a bunch of cool vendors. I bought a bunch of stuff !! haahhah!
Then there was Indie Intensive but I am too lazy to write about it... eehhh sorry
Then there was the last show in Laguna Niguel. Which happens to be my stompin' ground.
DO you see the bright pink canopy that looks so gaudy and like a circus tent.... thats MINE!!! Of course!
Here is MandaLanda she makes super cool things. We want to hook Jackies sister up with her brother who is photographed here ... hhhahahah he has no clue though! I think someone said he helps sew on the buttons... what a nice man!! Juan would never help me...
This is Palm Puppy I bought a SUPER cute boston terrier christmas ornament from her... I LOVE IT. It looks just like Gus, crazy eyes and all!!! I collect Christmas Ornaments so I just couldnt resist. She makes a bunch of different breeds...
And pretty much the star of the whole show... My precious little man... He was so well behaved just hung out and peeped his head out from the table to say Hello How dang cute is he?
I left out a bunch of pictures so if you want to see more check it out Here!
SO for now I am done doing any major shows until Christmas or until Juan leaves for Afghanistan. BUT a few days after Juan leaves we (handmade brigade girls) are planning to do a show at Detroit Bar. Which I kept calling Chicago and everyone had no clue what I was talking about. hahahaha I am so stupid!! I knew it was some City name. It should be fun though. Everyone says its a super cool place. I've never been but that should be September 20th I think... SO you guys better come!!!
