Up Coming Shows

Here's a little update about a few upcoming shows...This coming Friday night I'm doing a wonderful Boutique with a few of my South Orange Ave. neighbors. We tried it last year and had such a great response we thought we'd try it again. If you get a chance and would like to stop by we'll have warm drinks & wine, hors'doeuvres and lots of great gifts to for your holiday shopping pleasure! More details are on the right sidebar.

Oh! and I found out that one of my neighbors is also a henna tattoo artist! I really know nothing about this beautiful art form but I've always wanted a little something on my hands and now I may get my chance! I can't wait.
(Bella wants one too, maybe just a bitty one :)

I wonder what the kids at work will say on Monday?
Wish me luck, I'll let you know how mine turns out. :)

Happy Dia de los Muertos

We didn't ever really "celebrate" Dia de Los Muertos when I was a kid... but my kids today are much more aware of it and maybe even comforted by the idea that we have a special day to remember those people in our lives that we've loved and have gone on to be with God

Some years we go to the cemetary but this past week we just didn't make it. While there are so many loved ones we often think of, the person I think of most is my Grandma. She was such a powerful force of strength to our family and myself. As I thought about all she meant and gave to me growing up, I'll always be so grateful for her inspiration so, so long ago,
when she bought me my first tiny stash of Peruvian beads
from a little vendor in San Juan Capistrano,
a small loving gesture that would eventually lead to the beginning
of what is now Bella Luna Arts.
Thank you Grandma, I love you.
