I hope everyone had a Fangtastic Fangsgiving! I’m sick of seeing/hearing Black Friday ads…so I made another one! 😉 Whether you are safe at home, in coffin, or recovering from braving the crowds, this deal is sure to slay you. My heart goes out to the retail workers today. Don’t forget to support local and small businesses tomorrow on Small Business Saturday!
No, it’s isn’t vampires again. But I’m doing art. And that’s a good thing!
This past weekend was the DIYpsi Indie Art Summer Festival in Ypsilanti, Michigan. A long-time friend of mine, Celena Lopez, who is the talented crafter behind Diosa de la Luna, put a request out on facebook for someone to contribute art to be used in a tabletop display. I happened to see the request and was excited to take on the challenge. She was happy with the result and used it as part as her colorful and inviting table top display of wares. I went to the art fair on Sunday and got to see my artwork in action and look at all her neat things.
It was a fun show held at Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery. I hadn’t been to an art show in years. I miss them. Aside from the Michigan humidity, it was a great day. I was impressed by the sense of community DIYpsi fosters for local artists and crafters. I’m looking forward to attending more Diosa de la Luna and DIYpsi shows in the future.
Here is my fox hoop art from Diosa de la Luna. Please visit her website for more of Celena’s adorable handmade home decor!

“DrawMo” was a bust this past week. Not a lot of activity from me online. But I did spend some time painting with acrylics and doing paper crafts with third graders and on my own. Below you can see the “monster envelope” I made after watching a kids Halloween craft DVD. Considering modifying it to make it into a Santa face for mailing letters to Santa.
It would also look super cute with vampire teeth I think! 😉
